Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Supergoop!

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Supergoop!

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.

Here you’ll find every pregnancy safe skincare product from Supergoop! as of 3/2/2022. If it is not safe, I’ll tell you why. All of the products meet my pregnancy safe criteria. Note I will link to every product directly to avoid confusion. You’ll know exactly which product I mean.

Don’t See Your Product? Read This Before You Ask About It…

Please read the Pregnancy Beauty Guide intro first, where you will learn which products you actually need to worry about (spoiler alert, you don’t need to worry about all makeup or hair products). I will not review products that fall into the “don’t worry about it” categories. If you want to ask about a specific product, I require that you follow these guidelines for asking about pregnancy/nursing safety. You can also learn more about how to use these pregnancy safety lists. I will delete questions that don’t follow the guidelines or are rude.

          It’s a polyhydroxy acid, basically an AHA/BHA but even better at penetrating into your skin.

    I am not sure if Goop and Supergoop are the same brands but I was wondering about the G.TOX MALACHITE + FRUIT ACID PORE PURIFYING CLEANSER

    It says AHA but I didn’t find glycolic acid in the description. Just wanted to make sure before ordering. Thank you so much!!! This site is brilliant.

    Ingredients: Water (aqua, eau), capryloyl/caproyl methyl glucamide, lauroyl/myristoyl methyl glucamide, coco-glucoside, cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine, glycerin, sucrose cocoate, spondias mombin pulp extract, mangifera indica (mango) pulp extract, musa sapientum (banana) pulp extract, pelargonium graveolens (geranium) flower oil, malachite extract, eucalyptus globulus leaf oil, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf oil, citrus aurantium dulcis (sweet orange) peel oil, mentha piperita (peppermint) oil, mentha viridis (spearmint) leaf oil, schinus terebinthifolia fruit extract, xanthan gum, propanediol, canarium luzonicum gum nonvolatiles, dimethyl heptenal, pentylene glycol, sodium dehydroacetate, phenethyl alcohol, trisodium ethylenediamine disuccinate, triethyl citrate, citric acid, limonene, citronellol.

      Goop and SuperGoop are separate. The first is Gwenyth’s brand (the one with the jade eggs and steaming), the other is a mostly sunscreen brand sold at Sephora and Nordstrom and such.
      This product looks ok, they were likely referring to glycolic in one of the extracts (which we ignore), because this looks pregnancy and nursing safe to me.

    Hi Doc!

    I went to order the Mattescreen Sunscreen from Sephora and the images they had available noted that it now has Salicylic Acid. I contacted Supergoop to see if they had changed their formula along with the packaging. They confirmed that they did change it to make it more reef safe.

    Would you suggest that the amount they use could be safe or to avoid completely as I had read your previous post about avoiding Salicylic Acid.

    Thank you in advance.

      They did upgrade formulas to make things more reef safe, except that isn’t actually in the ingredient list on their site or the sephora site? So annoying and confusing. I see that graphic (which I didn’t see before… hmmmm…) I moved it down to only ok for nursing. Thanks!

        Hi Doc, I contacted Supergoop on their FB and they mentioned that the Smooth and Poreless Mineral Mattescreen / now called Mattescreen does not contain Salicylic Acid. This is their reply: Hi! Confirming that Smooth and Poreless Mineral Mattescreen / now called Mattescreen does not contain Salicylic Acid. The post you sent was suggesting to use Mattescreen if you are using Salicylic Acid separately. As for the old formula, it is the exact same as the current formula just a new name and new packaging! I hope this helps, please let me know if you have any other questions I can help with!

          I’m very confused by them. I had Mattescreen under pregnancy safe (and they’re right it is NOT in the ingredients on their site or the sephora site), and then due to the images on the sephora site someone contacted them and they said it was there, so I moved it down. Now they’re changing their tune? The formula was in fact updated, but I’m not sure why they’re denying that now. So frustrating. I’m going to make a comment about checking labels, if yours doesn’t say SA it should be fine to use.

    Hello! So I’ve been thinking of trying out the Glowscreen (which I see above as safe for nursing, not pregnancy). I think my question for you, however, is less about that specific product, and more around your thoughts on chemical sunscreens in general? When I was TTC, I read “It Starts With the Egg,” and a LOT of factors I think have led to me having a bit of a complex about endocrine disruptors at this point (my age – late 30s; I lost my first pregnancy due to miscarriage; reading that book; my mom got breast cancer the same year I miscarried…etc.). I’m in a better place now (therapy, medication, and time have all helped a bunch), and am now trying to get to a more relaxed place with regard to the products I use, i.e., more of a balance between using products that are safe, while still enjoying life (and using products I don’t hate is part of that). To that point, I kinda hate mineral sunscreen. It’s just so gross and heavy. Hence wanting to try this chemical sunscreen! But I’m interested in your take on how “bad” the chemical sunscreens are for us; especially for someone like me who would like another child at some point, has a family history of hormone-related cancer, etc. Thanks so much in advance.

    • 8.4.21
      Christine said:

      The reason currently to avoid chemical sunscreens while pregnant or TTC is due to the risk of hirschsprung’s disease or because many of them are salicylates. We haven’t proven anything yet regarding their endocrine disruption while pregnant, and that’s much more likely to be so subtle that we can’t prove anything. I expect we would outright ban them for general use even before we could prove anything while pregnant. Personally, I think there are enough other reasons to avoid while pregnant, and that translates over to TTC as you should be assuming you’re pregnant already. Not sure if that helps any.

        Hi, thank you for this. That totally makes sense with regard to pregnancy and TTC. With regard to chemical sunscreens and general health (so not when pregnant or TTC, but just living life), let me know if I understood you correctly – the endocrine disrupting properties of chemical sunscreens are subtle enough that it’s probably not worth worrying about? Or this is potentially a real health concern (hence the part about the possibility of banning them outright for general use)?

        • 8.4.21
          Christine said:

          It’s so subtle currently from a chemical sunscreen that I wouldn’t worry about it currently, at least for humans (it’s different for other species, such as reef animals, hence the new emphasis on reef safe sunscreens). There’s active ongoing research at this time, so that might change in the future. An endocrine disruptor that I would worry more about would be very large amounts of lavender oil/extract. A little bit (like what’s found in most lotions for example) is fine, but I wouldn’t take the straight oil and rub it all over your body daily for example.

    Hello, Doctor. THANK YOU for all your input on all of this.

    I was going to order the Supergoop mineral sunscreens you confirmed are safe. But I found polyhydroxy acids in the ingrediants list of the product, which you pointed out are not pregnancy safe in the ingrediants post. Did you also see them in the list and decided they are still safe, or should I avoid the product now that I checked they have polyhydroxy acids?

    Didn’t know pregnancy has all these things to care about!! Thank you for being a guide here again.

      Christine said:

      There aren’t any PHAs in the full ingredients, and I don’t see any called out as key ingredients either. So I’m not sure where you are getting that there are PHAs? The only one to worry about is gluconolactone, and that isn’t in any of the 3 mineral based safe products. Unless you are referring to the Polyhydroxystearic Acid, which is not a PHA but is actually a wax often used as a thickener.

      There are some “key ingredients” that I ignore when they aren’t listed separately on the ingredient list, info here: I see X ingredient in the key ingredients on the website, why are you ignoring it?

            I noticed that the Zinscreen 100% mineral lotion is still in your safe list above, but from the ingredients list, it has gluconolactone in it. Thank you

    Hi, I noticed that you have the Supergoop! 100% Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 Stick in the safe category but the ingredients list has that it contains Butyloctyl Salicylate. I’m confused because other products that share the ingredient are listed in the not safe for pregnancy category. Would you clarify this please? Thank you!

      That’s my fault, I somehow missed the salicylate! I’m sometimes human.

      Supergoop doesn’t vary by country. This is more an issue with very large companies such as Lancome and Estee Lauder.

      Your Canadian version looks fine for pregnancy and nursing, but check the actual product closely as the US versions (via the brand and sephora) have salicylate in them and aren’t pregnancy safe.

    Long time reader, first time poster! What about the Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride that’s in some of the Supergoop (and soooo many other products)? Is that ingredient pregnancy safe? Thank you!
