Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Deciem: The Ordinary, Chemistry Brand, Hylamide, and Niod

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from The Ordinary

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 Deciem’s Brands as of 5/29/2020. 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.

I have included The Ordinary, Chemistry Brand, Hylamide, and Niod all in the same post. For some reason, readers were consistently going to other brands and asking about products I had already reviewed. To prevent this from happening, they are now all in 1 post. Scroll down to find your brand. The brands are separated.

How to Request a Product Review

I try to review all of the products that I can when I publish a list. Note, I am in the US and I only have access to US products. Please don’t be rude if I skipped your favorite cleanser, when items are out of stock sometimes they aren’t on the brand’s site, or maybe you are in Asia and I am in the US.

I reserve the comments on each post for reviews of product from that brand, this makes it easier for others to find products later. Please only ask about The Ordinary, Chemistry Brand, Hylamide, and Niod on this post, I will delete other product questions. You can find other brands here. If your brand is not included, please ask on the brand list post.
