Pregnancy Safe Products from Tropic

Pregnancy Safe Products from Tropic

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 Tropic as of 4/4/2021. 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.

        Thanks so much.
        It seems the ‘bidens pilosa’ wasn’t in the old formula of the eye dream but is now, which is a shame.

        Can I just clarify – in some of the products like the cleanser which used to be on the not safe list because they contained gluconolactone, this has been removed, but there is an ingredient called ‘sodium gluconate’ in the formula. Is this a similar derived ingredient? Is it still safe?

        Thank you

        • 10.12.22
          Christine said:

          I’m currently of the opinion after some discussions with other docs that it’s too far removed and not something to worry about.
