Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Murad

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Murad

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 every pregnancy safe skincare product from Murad as of 5/5/2019. If it is not safe, I’ll tell you why. All of the products meet my pregnancy safe criteria. If they release a new product that is not listed here, please comment below and I will add it. Note I will link to every product directly to avoid confusion. You’ll know exactly which product I mean.

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.

Murad doesn’t have many pregnancy friendly products, in large part because Dr. Murad seems to love retinoids (which most dermatologists do). I recommend also looking at REN Skincare, which is owned by Murad, and a bit more pregnancy friendly.

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 Hemp does not have THC in it, it’s breed out of the plant basically. 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.

      These are new, you’re right! The first has a salicylate. The second has Cannabis Seed oil, and cannabis has known effects on babies (mostly THC but it hasn’t been fully teased out yet). No one has studied mode of exposure (topical vs smoking, etc) but I would use something else.

      I don’t comment on supplements, but I would strongly recommend talking to your physician about any supplements you take while trying to conceive, pregnant or nursing. In general we recommend using a prenatal (and only a prenatal) under those conditions as too much of certain vitamins (esp A) can cause issues.
