Pregnancy Safe Products from Tan-Luxe

Pregnancy Safe Products from Tan-Luxe

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 Tan-Luxe as of 3/20/2022. 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 discussion is very relevant for this brand: Sunless Tanners during pregnancy

    Hi!! Thank you so much for taking the time! You mention in your sunless tanning article that there are *some* pregnancy safe sunless tanners that you’ll find in your brand list, but I’ve dug and dug and can’t find even one. Could you please tell me which ones are even relatively safe? I have a maternity shoot on the beach and am desperate! (I tried body bronzer like you suggested but it got all over my white dress!)

      You still have to avoid the erythrulose. There are no pregnancy safe sunless tanners.

        Ok, I’m sorry, I must have misunderstood. In your sunless tanning post, you say “If you dig through my brand list you’ll find some mentioned.“ So I was digging and digging trying to find them…

          There are none. Both active ingredients need to be avoided.

      As noted in the post, I don’t want people asking about different brands on these posts. I get complaint emails from other readers about the “cluttered” comments every time this happens. Please refer to the Glow by Skalla post.
