Pregnancy Safe Sunscreens

Full Spectrum Pregnancy Safe Sunscreens

One of the hardest to find products in pregnancy safe skincare is sunscreen. Today I’m sharing the results of an exhaustive search for pregnancy safe sunscreens.

All of these sunscreens are physical sunscreens, with Zinc Oxide and/or Titanium Dioxide. If your sunscreen as anything else listed under “Active Ingredients” then I would not use it.

Learn more about full spectrum UV coverage here, pregnancy safe facial sunscreens are here.



Note, I have not tried all of these products. Once I started finding products that were full spectrum and pregnancy safe, I decided I would just list every product that I found! I know this list will be helpful to many of my readers. If you have tried any of these products, let me know how you liked it in the comments below. There’s also a list of pregnancy safe facial sunscreens. You can find many more pregnancy safe sunscreens listed in my big list of pregnancy safe skincare products.

    Hello, could you recommend a sunscreen that is pregnancy safe and can be purchased in Australia ?

      March 13, 2019 / 1:16 pm

      Unfortunately I’m based in the US and am not familiar with many of the brands available to Australia, not to mention I usually get automatically rerouted back to the US versions of sites from international versions. I recommend looking for sunscreens that have only zinc or titanium in them as sunscreen ingredients, and I can screen any you want from there 🙂
