Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Origins

Which products from Origins are safe to use while pregnant?

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 Origins as of 3/10/2019. 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.

Note, this list is currently being worked on, but I’ve published it in the partially completed state because there have been a lot of requests!

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 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.

      The first is ok, the second isn’t due to the salicylate. Ok while nursing though

      You have reviewed the Neogen ferment Micro in a comment before but this ingredient list looked different from the one previously posted, so i wanted to double check.
      Thanks again 🙂

        Often the lists are different for international versions vs. the US. Note, I only review US versions of products that that’s where I (and about 90% of my readers) live

      The first is ok but I would avoid the second due to gluconolactone, malic acid and salicylic acid. Probably ok while nursing though

      I would avoid this during pregnancy due to the salicylate and chemical sunscreen.
