Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Weleda

Pregnancy Safe Skincare from Weleda

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. 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 Weleda as of 3/11/2020. 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.

Please note, it can take up to an hour to review the ingredient lists of each product. I review with my own list of pregnancy safe criteria. I obtain my ingredient lists from the brands and major retailers (typically Nordstrom and Sephora), and I review the US versions. Please do not ask me to re-review the same products over and over, I do not have the time to do so, and many people have been rude about this. For more brands, please head over to the list of pregnancy safe products.

    Hello doctor,
    Thank you very much for your great website that helps so many women around the world to take wise and informed decisios :). I am pregnant with my first baby, and I kindly would like to ask your advice on these two sun lotion products from Weleda during the pregnancy and breastfeeding. Which one do you recommend to buy a SPF 30 or a SPF 50?
    I am wondering also about the SPF this since I live in Sweden, and hence our exposure to sun light during the year is quite limited to mostly during the summer months.

    Thanks again for your time and help
    Have a great day.

      They’re both safe for pregnancy and nursing. With the hormones during pregnancy it’s best to go with the highest SPF that you can tolerate to use correctly, it’s a great time to develop melasma.

            Ok thanks sorry I just checked that list!
            I had seen a few sites saying white mallow extract And borage seed oil may not be safe during pregnancy, but it’s not on your list to avoid so should be fine right?

            Also, this isn’t skin care related but are hemp seeds ok to consume during pregnancy? I love the extra protein boost.

            Thanks again for all your help<3

            Those ingredients are both fine for pregnancy/nursing.

            I recommend avoiding all hemp during pregnancy and nursing, especially ingested. This is my blurb for topical hemp/CBD, but it would apply more so if you’re eating it:
            There isn’t info out there on the safety of Cannabis used topically during pregnancy or nursing. We do know smoking marijuana with THC has bad effects and should be avoided, though it hasn’t been fully decided if it is just the THC or something else as well.
            Note that in theory Hemp and CBD do not have THC in them, it’s breed out of the plant is the official status. However, depending upon how it was processed many CBD oils will test positive for THC. But there are still the unknowns we haven’t decided about. I would not recommend using Hemp or Cannabis products while nursing or pregnant for that reason.
