Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Shiseido

What products from Shiseido are ok 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 Shiseido as of 1/13/2019. 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.

On my next review I will add every other product to the other categories so you’ll know why I didn’t consider them to be safe.

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.
Benefiance Pure Retinol Intensive Revitalizing Face Mask: Retinol
Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Pure Retinol Express Smoothing Eye Mask: Retinol
Bio-Performance LiftDynamic Eye Treatment: Retinol
Pureness Balancing Softener Alcohol-Free: The Dimorpholinopyridazinone is a “UV absorber”, similar to a chemical sunscreen, but it is unique to Shiseido and not much information is out. Chemical sunscreens get absorbed, I’m not sure what this ingredient does.
Ultimune Power Infusing Serum Concentrate: Mushroom Stem Cells (check out the ingredients post for more on my reservations regarding stem cells). Note Sephora just says mushrooms, but there isn’t a full ingredient list. The full list on the Shiseido site does say stem cells.

    Thank you so much for doing this. I’ve had people look at me weird for saying I’m using different products while pregnant, but I think medicine/science-based caution is a good thing. And this is such a service you’re providing for pregnant women! Very grateful.

    p.s. I’d asked somewhere else on your site about eyebrow/eyelash dyeing and you answered it – I really appreciated it so thank you.

      The glycyrrhetinic acid stearyl is a licorice root derivative so I would avoid this.
