Pregnancy Safe Skincare

The guide to pregnancy-safe skincare

For many women, pregnancy is the big push that make them thinking about safe skincare or clean beauty. Understand that, skin is the largest organ; everything it comes in contact with will pass through our bloodstream and down to our baby through the placenta. We want to stay far away from anything that could harm our baby. The best way to do is by switching to organic, healthier and nontoxic products.

How to check if your skincare products are safe?

A very credible resource for learning more about skincare and personal product ingredient safety is the Environmental Working Group (EWG).

Because personal care products aren’t heavily regulated, the EWG developed a database of over 87,000 personal care products, delivering a safety rating for each. The safety rating is generated by referencing each product’s ingredients with over 60 toxicity and regulatory databases.

You can reference the EWG’s Skin Deep® database online or get the app (available for iPhone or Android). In the app, you can quickly scan a product’s bar code to get its safety rating.
