Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Thayers

Is it safe to use Thayers Witch Hazel while you are pregnant?
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 Thayers as of 3/4/2022. 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.

      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….
