Are these products safe during pregnancy?

Are any SkinCeuticals products safe during pregnancy & breastfeeding? I'm pregnant so I'm looking for a new anti-aging skincare routine & I'm not sure if I can keep using it. Thank you

The safest products during pregnancy are organic or contain glycolic acid which is just made from a sugar, if you want to be really particular.  All of the products sold without prescriptions are generally safe unless they contain a clear warning on the label.  Generally, avoid any of the vitamin A creams or retinoids like retinol, Retin A, Renova, etc.   There’s no proof that those topicals/creams cause problems but doctors generally counsel patients to avoid extra Vitamin A during pregnancy. Here is an entire article on Skincare During Pregnancy, which goes into a great amount of detail about what you can use and what you should avoid while you are pregnant. Hope this helps,  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
