Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Tata Harper

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Tata Harper

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 Tata Harper as of 2/19/2020. 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.

2/19/2020 There were quite a few products reformulated I think. I have just reviewed the entire brand again, but please check your packaging. The only ingredient to be concerned about is Willow Bark (Salix Alba), which I recommend avoiding during pregnancy.

How to Request a Product Review

I try to review all of the products that I can when I publish a list. Note, I am in the US and I only have access to US products. Please don’t be rude if I skipped your favorite cleanser, when items are out of stock sometimes they aren’t on the brand’s site, or maybe you are in Asia and I am in the US.

I reserve the comments on each post for reviews of product from that brand, this makes it easier for others to find products later. Please only ask about Tata Harper on this post, I will delete other product questions. You can find other brands here. If your brand is not included, please ask on the brand list post.

    The elixir vitae has resveratrol in it, which I think is unsafe. Do you think it’s safe for pregnancy

    I look forward to your reply. It is a very expensive serum and wants to be sure it can be used during pregnancy before I buy it.

      This looks different than I saw before, this has willow bark in it, righta t the beginning. I wonder if they reformulated? I wouldn’t use this while pregnant. I’m going to check the website and update the list here, thanks!

      Edit to add: Just coming back to say their website currently lists the serum as “new”, so I think it is a reformulation. I’m going to re-review the brand, I will update the post above to reflect that and hope to be done soon!

        it was good that I asked you before I bought it. What is everyone called Willow Bark in skincare series. I think it might be good to know. Many brands just like this update the ingredients with new ones all the time.

        Hello doctor, hope you are well!

        I’m curious about Arnica extract, which is an ingredient in this water lock moisturizer as well as revitalizing body oil (and a number of TH products); I read in multiple places that Arnica is not safe for pregnancy–I take that to mean consuming orally, which can be used for abortion… So I’m wondering are you aware of any studies or knowledge regarding surface application of this ingredient? Thanks!

      They’re referring to natural vitamin A found in some of the extracts. You only need to worry when it is included as a separate ingredient (not exactly the same chemical and a higher concentration). This is fine for pregnancy and nursing.

    Hi! I’m confused as I’ve been told most of the Tata Harper products on this are safe for pregnancy, and also that Willow Bark is a safe alternative to Vitamin A. This is leading me to believe that it isn’t safe, but curious as to why?
    Thank you!

    • 11.25.20
      Christine said:

      Willow Bark isn’t considered either an alternative to Vitamin A derivatives or safe in pregnancy. It’s high in natural salicylates (the same family as aspirin) and typically is considered the natural alternative to salicylic acid. However, many physicians consider it as a salicylate and recommend avoidance in pregnancy.
