Pregnancy Safe Skincare from REN

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from REN

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 REN Skincare as of 5/19/2020. 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.

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.

      Sounds like this one is a no go. I love it, too and since REN says all of their products are pregnancy safe I thought I’d do some additional research to see what people said.

    Car said:

    why not the Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic??? I read this about willow bark..

    “willow bark” and “salicylic acid” are not the same thing. Rather, when ingested, the body converts the salicilin contained in willow bark to salicylic acid, but this requires complex functions of the human digestive system that the skin does not do.3 Because they’re not the same, the benefits are different. Willow bark is not as strong of an active ingredient as salicylic acid, but it does retain aspirin-like qualities, specifically anti-inflammatory properties.

    thanks

    • 7.7.19
      15mins said:

      It’s specifically because of those aspirin like qualities that we say to avoid it. All salicylates are actually to be avoided (doesn’t your OB put in big letters on paperwork to NOT take aspirin?), Willow Bark has enough of that property that my OB specifically called it out. There’s more information in my post on ingredients to avoid during pregnancy, but wow you seem very upset about my opinion. It’s just my opinion, as a physician. You can ask your physician.

    iam trying to get pregnant and just bought Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic and REN Bio Retinoid Oil anti wrinkel conctreated oil and REN Bio Retinoid Cream anti aging cream because susan yara used it while she was pregnant so i thought they were safe but after seeing your information i see that you say they are not safe? if i got it right. but when i google about the ingrediens you listed as not safe in these products : Willow Bark (Salicylate) and Bakuchiol i just cant find the explanation to why they are not safe. what should i use? i just bought the products and looked forward to use specially the ren Bio Retinoid Oil and bio retinoid cream because as susan yara said they are a retinol alternativ to use while your are pregnant. ?

      skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy

      Bauchiol is one that I’ve been treating as a retinoid as brands claim it has the same mechanism of action as a retinoid, but there’s no data supporting safety. As retinoids are the biggest ingredient to avoid because they have the strongest data linking them to birth defects, unless there is data supporting that they are in fact safe (which is unethical research to perform so we won’t get the needed data), I say to avoid them. I don’t think Susan Yara has any medical background, she’s just a “beauty expert.” I’m a pediatrician, we are specifically trained in looking at medications and products for nursing and pregnant moms.

    Quick question: prior to pregnancy I was using the REN AHA Renewal Serum to help with my KP on my arms—what other pregnancy safe products do you recommend for severe KP cases (I am very early pregnancy)? And, are hair products an area of worry during pregnancy?

    Very grateful for this!
