What skincare ingredients are safe during and after pregnancy?

From both hormonal to physical changes, there are a multitude of things a woman goes through during pregnancy—and her skin is one of them. A woman’s skin will experience many changes from the time when she first gets pregnant, during her pregnancy, and the postpartum period, and it’s important to ensure the skincare used throughout is safe from any chemicals.

Here at The Moisturizers Co., we’re fully focused on creating gentle, cruelty-free high performance skincare. Our current line of high efficacy skincare are full of botanical ingredients and clinical-grade actives, and are perfectly safe for the pregnant ladies. Here’s a handy breakdown of the ingredients:

Brightening Moisturizing Cream with Arbutin and Vitamins

The perfect way to give your pregnancy glow its rightful boost! This serum-infused cream is enriched with potent concentrations of Vitamin C (amongst others), which is highly recommended during pregnancy as it plays an important role in the production of collagen, a protein that promotes structure and elasticity. As an antioxidant, it also works to protect cells from signs of aging by fighting free radicals.

Ultra Pore Refiner Anti-Blemish Night Cream with Niacinamide

This non-greasy, non-drying milky gel is formulated with niacinamide to combat oil production and reduce the appearance of pores with a blend of Witch Hazel and AHA (0.5%) - Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid. Glycolic Acid helps to rid oils and dead skin cells while regenerating collagen, thicken epidermis and dermis, and even out skin tone. Lactic Acid is wonderful at increasing hydration in the skin, increasing the natural barrier lipids in the outer layer of skin and reducing fine lines. Both Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid are safe to use during pregnancy, and great to keep your skin looking soft, smooth and bright.

Ultra Moisturizing Repair Gel with Calendula

For pregnant ladies who feel the occasional hot flush or dry skin, this lightweight soothing gel moisturizer works wonderfully to soothe complexions. Plus, it contains both Allantoin, a moisturizing ingredient that increases the water content of cells to promote supple skin and healing, and packed with Calendula and Cucumber extracts to improve skin elasticity and promote anti-aging. Perfectly safe and hydrating to make pregnancy skincare a breeze.

Everyday Serum with Hyaluronic Acid

We created the Everyday Serum to be the quintessential step before applying moisturizer, as it helps to boost the efficacy of your moisturizer when applied, allowing skin to retain moisture. This skin booster contains a blend of two concentrated ingredients, Hyaluronic Acid and Pro-Vitamin B5 (panthenol)—an extremely gentle, water-binding vitamin that retains skin moisture and help to plump up the skin. Pregnant ladies can enjoy dewy and baby-smooth skin, before and after the baby comes along!

Glow Renew Essence Toner with Green Tea

For the busy mum-to-be, an all-in-one product doesn’t just need to save you time, it also needs to be efficient and effective. The Glow Renew Essence Toner is a multifunctional product that acts as a toner, face mist and face mask and effectively brightens one’s complexion while producing collagen and elastin. It also contains Pro-Vitamin B5 and Green Tea extracts, a rich antioxidant with anti-aging properties that also boosts the immune response in skin cells to protect from external toxins. This essence toner is especially wonderful for mums during the postpartum period—the essence works wonderfully around the eye area to reduce puffiness and lighten dark circles should sleepless nights kick in when taking care of a newborn!

Each purchase of the Glow Renew Essence Toner comes with 5 capsules of compressed silk masks. Choose to use as a toner, face mist or face mask at your own preference!

We truly hope that pregnant ladies will be able to enjoy our range of high efficacy skincare. What’s more, our products don’t contain ingredients like salicylic acid or retinols that should be avoided during pregnancy.

As a general guide, some keywords to look out for when selecting skincare are “gentle” and “plant-based”, while helpful ingredients are antioxidants and gentle acids, allantoin and panthenol (for their soothing properties), as well as collagen-boosting ingredients like aloe vera and lime oil. Of course, it’s always good practice to seek a doctor’s advice if you have concerns as to whether a product is suitable for use during pregnancy.
