Are these products safe during pregnancy?
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
