Cosmetics during pregnancy

Many expectant mothers worry about the effects their cosmetic products might have during pregnancy and breast-feeding. However, to date, all scientific studies on the subject have concluded there is no evidence that cosmetics affect them at all.

Cosmetic products are regulated by strict safety standards, which include safety assessments of each product. Safety assessments must take into account all the different situations and conditions the products are likely to be used in, including during pregnancy. Therefore, pregnant women can use any cosmetic product perfectly safely.

They should remember that their skin will be more sensitive during pregnancy and need special care. It’s particularly important to moisturise delicate areas. They can also take steps to prevent problems like stretch marks with many different formulas on the market.
