Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Skyn Iceland

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Skyn Iceland
Pregnancy safe beauty products 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 pregnancy safe products from Skyn Iceland as of 2/6/2022. 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.

    I’m 5 weeks pregnant and have just found out a couple of days ago. I have been using Skyn Iceland’s Nordic Skin Peel a few times a week and I just checked your list and it’s on the ‘not safe’ due to willow bark. With my zero medical knowledge, have I jeopardised the little one at this early stage?

      In #1 I’m not certain if the Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Callus Culture Extract is a stem cell ingredient. Sometimes stem cells are listed this way, but not always. I would check into what the brand is claiming about stem cells in the product. My concerns are in this post: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy.

      Otherwise, both are safe for pregnancy and nursing
