Pregnancy Safe Products from Sol de Janeiro

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Sol de Janeiro
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 Sol de Janeiro as of 3/2/2022. 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.

    Hi is the bum bum cream OK even though it contains an ingrediant that mimics the effect of caffeine?

    -Guaraná: Supports natural circulation, boosts energy, and smooths skin; contains five times the caffeine of coffee.

    Thanks!

    • 9.16.19
      15mins said:

      Yes, caffeine itself is also ok topically. You do need to limit your intake orally (aka- don’t drink an entire pot of coffee), but that is a much bigger exposure than you could get from a cream.

    Thank you so much for this–unfortunately I’ve been using the 4 play moisturizing shower gel which has Benzyl Salicylate. I’m 8 weeks pregnant and a bit nervous about it. I can’t find the percentage or anything (I assume because it’s Benzyl Salicylate and not Salicylic Acid?) and I can’t really understand the difference. What is the difference?
    I am switching immediately but should I be worried about exposure I’ve already had?
    Thanks so much

      You need to avoid all salicylates, the % doesn’t really matter.

    Hello!
    First off, your page has been such a tremendous resource when deciding which products to replace or cut out during pregnancy. I appreciate your work so much!

    I have been avoiding using my Brazilian Bum Bum cream and other perfumes due to the coumarin in the ingredient list. I realize this coumarin is not the same as the drug, Coumadin, but I have still read conflicting opinions about the topical use of coumarin in pregnancy. I would love to know your thoughts. Thank you!

    • 3.1.20
      15mins said:

      I haven’t found anything convincing that in smaller doses (and used topically) that it is something that needs to be avoided. I haven’t used Bum Bum Cream, but what is it like and what is it helpful for? Maybe I can recommend an alternative that doesn’t have coumarin. I don’t want you to worry!
      Re: perfumes, (I’m assuming you’re referring to regular spray scents here) I like to advise spraying the perfume onto your clothes. You’ll get the scent but it won’t even touch you 🙂

      • 3.4.20
        Amanda said:

        Great advice on the spray scents! I like the Bum Bum cream because of its scent and the moisturizing effects. It’s marketed as cellulite-reducing but not a miracle worker in my opinion. Certainly nothing that can’t be avoided or replaced. Thanks for your thoughts!

        • 3.4.20
          15mins said:

          Ah! I didn’t realize they marketed it that way. If it helps nothing has been found to actually help cellulite when used topically, so I’d just swap to a different cream

    Do you recommend a specific self tanning lotion or foam? If so, which one?

    Thanks!

    • 4.18.20
      15mins said:

      I recommend avoiding all self tanning products during pregnancy, the only 2 active ingredient available should be avoided while pregnant.

      Christine said:

      Nothing topically has ever been shown to be helpful in studies. If I remember correctly, there are some pregnancy safe options that are marketed for cellulite from Clarins (pregnancy safe products from Clarins), but keep in mind that amazing results might not be possible with a topical product.

      This has a salicylate, so I would avoid in pregnancy, but ok for nursing.
      There are a lot of hair care brands in my list of pregnancy safe brands, I would look at Shea Moisture, Briogeo or Aveda as I know they all have a lot of options. You only need to worry about hair products that get applied to your scalp, and since conditioners are just on the ends I wouldn’t worry about the conditioner.

    Hi there, I realize you have said that you do not review fragrances however I have a question about the Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Crush Body Spray that I’m hoping you can answer. I have been using this since before my pregnancy and did not stop throughout, I put it on my clothes, not on my skin however I’m sure my skin comes into contact with a small bit of it. On the Sephora website where I bought it, in the ingredients section it doesn’t list salicylates but now at 20 weeks pregnant I see the ingredients on the product site: ethylhexyl salicylate and benzyl salicylate are both listed. Is this something that 1. I should be concerned about my prior use with and 2. Should discontinue use if it is not going on my skin in large amounts?
    Thank you!

      Christine said:

      I think you’re dramatically overthinking it truthfully, and you don’t need to worry about it. The chances of it rubbing off on your skin is so minimal, and then enough to really be absorbed let alone make a difference…. I give you permission to let it go and not worry about it 🙂 I think you can continue to using it as you have been and not worry.

      This is what I say when people are really using a product that’s bad (I wouldn’t consider what you’re doing to really be using it), but it will help you feel better too: You’ve been using a product with a “bad” ingredient

            Ok, this will really be my last question: which sunscreen do you use on your kids? My son is 6 (I’m pregnant with our second) and I’d love to find a mineral for his face but a spray for reapplication at the beach or camp…

          • 5.23.22
            Christine said:

            I don’t use spray sunscreens ever. They are impossible to know if they have been applied properly (how much did you push down the nozzle? How far away from the skin were you? Did you move at the correct speed? How much wind was there during application?) to the point that the FDA has talked about banning them in the US for years. I have also personally admitted a not insignificant number of children to my ICU for asthma due to sunscreen spray, once it was a kid who wasn’t even having it applied to them, just another kid at the public pool who had a chemical sunscreen applied in their general direction and the wind blew it on him.
            My kids use Kiehl’s Superfluid UV defense (the chemical version)
