Pregnancy Safe Skincare from SK-II

What products from SK-II 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 SK-II as of 1/21/2019. 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 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.

      I have reviewed the entire line. If your product is not included above it was left off for a reason.

    Sorry to ask, I fount most of SKII products, i.e. Facial Treatment Essence, Oil, RNA Serum has Methylparaben and/or Propylparaben, and/or Ethylparaben. Is it safe to use products with paraben? Thanks a lot for your advice.

      Sorry, that product isn’t available in the US and the Singapore SK-II website will not open for me.
