Pregnancy-Friendly Skincare

5:05 PM

Ignore the misleading post title, I would like to keep this for my future reference(s).

I am in search of natural, non-toxic, probably green products because I already started to eat healthier, mostly organic produces

P.s. or simply; Im spoilt with choices at Sephora, I shall restrict my purchase HAHA

So I think the best options for the most natural, non-toxic skincare I could find is those that are pregnancy-friendly

P.s. If not pregnant, hands down, SK-II range is the best!

I refer to this source for the ingredients list to avoid (for expecting moms):  http://www.15minutebeauty.com/2010/10/newwhat-to-avoid-while-pregnant.html

In summary : (taken her opinions)
✘ RETIN-A / RETINOIDS / VITAMIN A
✘ ALL HYDROXY ACIDS, except Lactic Acid
✘ DIHYDROXYACETONE
✘ HYDROQUINONE / KOJIC ACID
✘ BENZOYL PEROXIDE
✘ SALICYLATES
✔ PARABENS AND CHEMICAL SUNSCREENS
✔ HYALURONIC ACID

P.s. Dr Zubaidi suggested to stay away from parabens, while Cetaphil Malaysia said parabens only harmful in large quantity/consumption

Refer : https://cetaphil.com.my/skincare-during-pregnancy/ in reply to Alexandrea Reznik

So lets analyze what I have, what are those with YES and NO


BODY WASH



These are my top 5 because I really depends and loving them so lets analyze what I have below :


REDKEN : YES, unless you're avoiding PARABENS


LACTACYD : BIG YES! (recommended by my doctor for my sensitive skin)

P.s. it is also multipurpose, for face/body/hair wash


MUSTELA : YES, unless you're concerned about 'PARFUM' but it says 0% phthalates


LUSH : YES, unless you're concerned about PERFUME and PARABENS


THE BODY SHOP : YES

P.s. this has been my travel shower gel when I am out for work


FACIAL CLEANSERS




Kate Somerville : NO (contains Salicylic Acid)

ARCONA (available at SephoraMY) : YES



TONERS




ARCONA : YES

SK-II FT CLEAR LOTION : NO (contains salicylic Acid)



MOISTURIZERS




SK-II range : YES, unless you're avoiding PARABENS

P.s. SK-II have it all from methyl to propylparaben

EGYPTIAN MAGIC (available at SephoraMY) : YES!






I have been reading ingredients and well, im no expert but I found these (below) interesting. These 2 items are recommended for pregnant moms but they have : RETINYL PALMITATE

P.s. but I shall not comment on whether these items are safe or not




Until next post! 

(probably Pregnancy-Friendly Makeup)
