Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Thayers

Is it safe to use Thayers Witch Hazel while you are 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 Thayers as of 4/1/2019. 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.

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 Thayers 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.

      This has licorice root so I wouldn’t use it for pregnancy, only nursing

    I was recently told that phenoxyethanol is found in my Thayers Rose Petal Toner and causes “nervous system interactions” in infants so it wasn’t recommended for breastfeeding or pregnancy. I don’t see them as “not recommended” and was curious why.

      Everything that I’m worried about and that have enough evidence to support avoidance (per the mainstream medical community) is discussed here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy
      Phenoxyethanol isn’t felt to have enough to be of a concern currently.

        The researches seem to show that Phenoxyethanol might not be recommended for pregnancy only because your skin might be sensitive during this time, or if you ingest it.
        Thank you Dr. for this very helpful site, this site definitely helps ease a lot my stress when it comes to finding safe products to use during pregnancy 🙂

    I’d love your feedback on witch hazel toner.

    I’m reading conflicting information on witch hazel, a main ingredient for DIY postpartum padscicles, yet there’s ‘not much evidence it’s pregnancy/nursery safe’ on the other hand.

    Ingredients: Natural Witch Hazel Extract and fragrance, Aloe Vera, Purified Water and natural grain alcohol (10% as a preservative)

      Witch hazel is fine. Everything you need to worry about is here: skincare ingredients to avoid during pregnancy

      I would be careful with it in a padscicle, if any gets on your skin, which is insanely sensitive after giving birth….
