Skin Care Ingredients to Avoid While Nursing

While I’m sure you know by now that you need to change your skin care routine while pregnant, but how does this translate over to breasting feeding? Are there skin care ingredients to avoid while nursing?

Skin Care Ingredients to Avoid While Nursing

Luckily, it turns out that breast feeding is very different than being pregnant. The placenta is basically a big sieve, it filters out a lot of stuff but since it is non-specific it does allow a lot of stuff to cross over. A lot of the ingredients to avoid while pregnant are because of the timing of the exposure, your baby was busy making organs!

When nursing, the body is pretty specific about what goes into breast milk. It isn’t filtering everything into the breast milk, instead things are much more specific. The timing of exposure (and potential side effects) is just very different once the baby is out! Those organs have been made, and the baby is also just a lot bigger. So, the list of skin care ingredients to avoid while nursing is much shorter than the list of ingredients to avoid while pregnant.

Medications and Nursing

One thing you need to be worried about are your medications. Nursing safety is a bit different than pregnancy safety for medications. Everything should be looked up in a lactation safety book (Medications and Mother’s Milk or Drugs in Pregnancy and Lactation) and discussed with your physician. L1-L3 are considered safe, L4 and above is not safe.

Skin Care Ingredients to Avoid While Nursing

Retin A/Accutane, Retinoids, Vitamin A: Used topically, Retinoids are a category L3, but orally (as with Accutane) they fall to L4. So, topical is ok, systemic is not. I’d check with your doctor if you’re on anything other than just a basic, over the counter topical retinoid, but those found in skin care products should be fine.

Hydroquinone: While there is no data on Hydroquinone in humans, it is absorbed and quite water soluble, and based on some pharmacodynamics (the pKa, which is too complicated to get into here as it was a many hour discussion when I was in medical school), it may be trapped in the breast milk if it reaches it. So, it is recommended to avoid. I would include Arbutin with hydroquinone.

Pretty much everything else: Safe!

      I don’t comment on things taken topically, I would talk to your kid’s pediatrician (we have this great book that looks everything up). Oral hyaluronic acid is unlikely to be able to help much at all….

      I can’t comment on safety without a list but please read above for which ingredients you need to avoid. It’s only hydroquinone/arbutin and maybe retinol if you’re being very conservative, hydroxy acids are fine.

    Hi, please enlighten me if i could use rejuvanating set. specifically fairy skin derma set. I am hesitating from the ingredients which alpha arbutin and retinol. Im currently breastfeeding my 1 year old baby.

      So typically the “skin whiteners” such as hydroquinone and arbutin are recommended to avoid during pregnancy and nursing. Not much is known about the Phenylethyl Resorcinol, I would likely recommend avoiding it.

    Thanks for the info! I was concerned if I’d have to avoid the same ingredients in nursing as for pregnancy. I found a lot of this info online. I wish my doctors had discussed this in my first pregnancy. I was only told no salicylic acid. That’s all. Not helpful. You, on the other hand, are *too* helpful! You have these ingredient lists for ladies to check their products, but one after the other still post the ingredients of their products for *you* to check for them! I’m going crazy just seeing their posts! You’re too nice, but thank you for your professional knowledge!

          They’re not good while pregnant for sure, and chemical sunscreens are absorbed into your body but not into the breast milk to my knowledge. I’ve never heard anything about avoiding AHA or BHA while pregnant and can’t find anything from my sources.

        Thank you so much! I did check the list for Sunday Riley prior to posting. However, I didn’t see the vitamin C + Turmeric oil on the list. Perhaps because It’s fairly new?

    Hi doc, Heliocare Purewhite Radiance is an oral sunblock that is recommended for those with melasma. It’s a capsule that is taken orally. Do you mind checking if the ingredients are safe for nursing?

      I don’t comment on anything you take orally, I would speak to your physician. Note that as far as I know this is simply a supplement and there are not any actual oral sunblocks. The ingredients listed here would not confer any sun protection.
