Pregnancy Safe Products from Kiehl’s

Pregnancy Safe Products from Kiehl's

Pregnancy safe skincare can be super difficult and confusing. I have an entire guide devoted to what products are safe to use while pregnant including information on what ingredients to avoid while pregnant and a huge list of pregnancy safe skincare products. The list has gotten so large that I’ve decided to start listing brands in their own individual posts.

Here you’ll find pregnancy safe products from Kiehl’s as of 3/29/2020. I have reviewed every product. All of the products listed meet my pregnancy safe criteria. I link to every product directly to avoid confusion. You’ll know exactly which product I mean.

I have reviewed the US versions of these products. Note that international Kiehl’s products sometimes have different ingredients, so you will need to compare ingredient lists against the ones I have reviewed.

Please note, it can take up to an hour to review the ingredient lists of each product. I review with my own list of pregnancy safe criteria. I obtain my ingredient lists from the brands and major retailers (typically Nordstrom and Sephora), and I review the US versions. Please do not ask me to re-review the same products over and over, I do not have the time to do so, and many people have been rude about this. For more brands, please head over to the list of pregnancy safe products.

Not Safe for Pregnancy or Nursing

Note I’m including products with retinoids here, as those are a bit iffy. It depends on how conservative you want to be while nursing (still absolutely contraindicated while pregnant). Refer to my post on ingredients to avoid while nursing for more discussion.

There isn’t info out there on the safety of Cannabis used topically during pregnancy or nursing. We do know smoking marijuana with THC has bad effects and should be avoided, though it hasn’t been fully decided if it is just the THC or something else as well.
Note that in theory Hemp and CBD do not have THC in them, it’s breed out of the plant is the official status. However, depending upon how it was processed many CBD oils will test positive for THC. But there are still the unknowns we haven’t decided about. I would not recommend using Hemp or Cannabis products while nursing or pregnant for that reason.

Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Cleanser: Hemp, Salicylic Acid
Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate (at Sephora): Hemp
Youth Dose Eye Treatment (at Sephora): Retinoid
