“Avoid during pregnancy”… the laundry list

Oh NO! This blog isn’t what you think it is. While the internet is full of ingredients and items to avoid while pregnant, we recommend you find resources and healthcare professionals you trust to give you the best information for your body during pregnancy.

No doubt, pregnancy evolves a new level of conscious thought - “What goes into my body, goes into the baby”. And when you are pregnant you get a long list of to-dos and to-don’ts from more people than you ask. We believe it is safer to err on the side of caution when it comes to skincare products and ingredients during pregnancy.
