Pregnancy Safe Products from Trish McEvoy

Pregnancy Safe Products from Trish McEvoy

Pregnancy safe skincare and makeup 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 pregnancy safe products from Trish McEvoy as of 7/11/2021. 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.

Which makeup do you need to worry about?

There are a lot of products you don’t need to screen, and it really depends upon the formulation. You don’t need to worry about powders such as setting powder, highlighters or eye shadows. Eye liners and brow products that are wax based pencils also don’t need to be screened. Mascaras and mascara-like primers and brow products also don’t need to be screened.

I have purposefully not screened these products, and as I’m usually overwhelmed with request to review products that should be screened, I will not review these products for you. Please refer to my post on pregnancy safe makeup for more explanation.

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 Trish McEvoy 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.

    My dermatologist says bakuchiol is pregnancy safe. Would you be willing to explain why it’s not? Thanks in advance!

      I can’t verify that it is or isn’t. There are NO studies on it. Many brands claim that it “works the same as retinoids”, but I haven’t been able to get anyone to explain that more. It has the same effects? Or the same mechanism of action? So I’ve made the disclaimer repeatedly that until I have more information I’m treating Bakuchiol like a retinoid.

    Hi doctor,
    i used foundation in my first trimester containing ethylhexyl methoxycinnamat, and now im very worried.
    I have read on your blog that make up is not supposted to get into skin, and that we need to pay more atention on creams because they are absorbing into the skin. But, im still worried 🙁

    Hello, You are a God-send for pregnant women! You helped me with a question on a product about a year ago and I was hoping you could look at the pregnancy-safety of another product for me. The product is “Eye-Scrub” eyepads by Alcon, and the ingredients list follows: Ingredients. Purified water USP, PEG-300 hydrogenated glyceryl palmate, disodium laureth sulfosuccinate, cocoamido propyl amino oxide, PEG-80 glyceryl cocoate, benzyl alcohol and edetate disodium.

    The box lists PEG 200 rather than PEG-300-not sure if it makes a difference. Are these ingredients pregnancy safe?
