Which skincare products are safe to use during pregnancy?
Drugstore, department store, and other non prescription products are not required to do any specific safety testing for pregnancy, as long as they are not using banned ingredients. Prescription skincare products are different and are assigned pregnancy safety categories.
So………….it’s difficult to know with any certainty the answer to this question. On the one hand, small amounts are being used, unless you are putting these all over your body. On the other hand, why worry about it at all, especially the first 3-4 months when all the organs of the baby are being formed? Consider sticking with all organic products for the first trimester (3 months) at least and eliminating as many chemicals as you can from your skincare and your food.
