Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Sunday Riley

What products are safe to use from Sunday Riley if you're 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 Sunday Riley 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 was wondering the same thing! I don’t see it on the list of “safe for pregnancy” but it isn’t on the list of “not safe for pregnancy” I’m having a hard time finding out anything about it online!

        It’s left off on purpose due to glycolic. I haven’t had a chance to go back and fill in all of the left out ones yet. The safe ones are all above as I said in the post and above.

    Why is the Arbutin safe for nursing in this product but not in THE Ordinary?

      Oh! Because I copied it under the wrong category. Thanks for catching that, it should be under not safe for either.

    Hi, i saw in the list that Juno Antioxidant + Superfood Face Oil is listed in category “Safe for pregnancy” but it is rich in vitamin A, so is it ok?

    -Blueberry Seed Oil: Contains high antioxidant levels, Vitamin E, and Omega 3.
    -Cranberry Seed Oil: Rich in Vitamins A, C, E, and K; contains the perfect balance of Omegas 3, 6, and 9.
    -Red Raspberry Seed Oil: Provides soothing and calming properties; when used in conjunction with sunscreen, helps support natural UV protection.
    -Broccoli Seed Oil: Rich in Vitamin A and Erucic Acid (an Omega 9 oil).
