Pregnancy Safe Products from Origins

What products from Origins are safe to use while pregnant or breast feeding?

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 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.

Please refer to my post on pregnancy safe makeup, where I explain why you don’t need to worry about your mascara, powders, eyeliners, brow products, etc. I do not review these products.

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 Origins 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.

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 have the Smoothing Souffle Whipped Body Cream and the main ingredient is said to be peppermint. I’ve been reading a lot on essential oil use while pregnant and it warms against peppermint in the first trimester. Do you agree? Is this lotion ok to use early on?

    • 4.16.19
      15mins said:

      Should be ok in a product. We don’t really know how much to use/avoid, we mostly say not to slather yourself up like crazy with any of the EOs. But the exposure in a product like a cream or lotion is much lower.

    Hi there, I’m a bit worried now as I’ve been using night a mins cream while pregnant and it’s in the not safe list. Why is it unsafe and should I be worried that I’ve been using it?

    • 5.12.19
      15mins said:

      Please refer to the lists below to the safe list to see which ingredient was on my list of ingredients to avoid during pregnancy, most of the night a mins are unsafe due to salicylic acid, but I can’t tell you which ingredient for sure as there are a lot of those products. I have info on what to do if you are using an unsafe product in my pregnancy FAQ, but in general the worst ingredient to be using is a retinoid, the others haven’t been proven and theoretically could cause issues, but many women use products throughout their pregnancies without issues. I would just change to a different product and not worry about it.

    Hi Doctor,

    Thanks so much for this. One quick question please.. why is  A PERFECT WORLD™ ANTIOXIDANT CLEANSER WITH WHITE TEA listed in the not for pregnancy list? I checked the origins site and cannot find the ‘licorice root’ on it? I am currently using it hence asking. Thank you! 🙂

    Hi Doc, good day and hello from Philippine. I’m a first time mom (single mom)…not sure if I’m on my 4th or 5th week as I don’t visit OB yet (just positive PT ) but I’m sure I’m pregnant 😍…I love your ebook and site ❤️❤️❤️
    Very helpful. Will surely recommend with my family and friends. I’m using Origins product some you’ve mentioned (willowherb serum and mattefying mask) I will stop for now but facial cleanser check and balances (I was relieved that it’s ok to use ☺️)
    I’m also using This Korean product called PHYTO NIACIN WHITENING ESSENCE, KEY INGREDIENTS
    Niacinamide – Brightens and clarifies the skin

    Bamboo leaf extract – Hydrating and has anti-aging properties

    Hyaluronic acid – Humectant that attracts moisture to the skin to keep it hydratedE,

    This are full ingredients list which is very confusing for me:

    Bambusa Vulgaris Extract, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Niacinamide, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Nelumbo Nucifera Flower Extract, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Morus Alba Bark Extract, 3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, Rosa Canina Fruit Extract, Leontopodium Alpinum Extract, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Achillea Millefolium Extract, Gentiana Lutea Root Extract, Artemisia Absinthium Extract, Alcohol, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Disodium EDTA, Potassium Hydroxide

    At the moment, I stop using the phyto niacin as I’m not sure of it.. I will wait for your go signal Doc
    Thank you and more power.
    God bless you always.
