“Are your products safe to use during pregnancy?”

This is one of our most commonly asked questions, and understandably so. And when it comes to pregnancy safe skincare, we’ve got you covered. Our philosophy has always been everything your skin needs, nothing it doesn’t. Keeping our formulations clean, we work hard to ensure our products are safe for everyone, including those very special moments of pregnancy and breastfeeding.

We’ve all heard of the pregnancy glow, and boy can that glow glow! During pregnancy there’s a huge amount of hormonal change going on, plus your body is producing around 20-45% more blood (sometimes more!). All this contributes to that famous (and envious) pregnancy glow (trust us, if we could bottle it, we would). But everyone’s pregnancy journey is different and sometimes that glow-up doesn’t necessarily show-up.

While it’s totally natural to start really looking at and re-thinking the types of products you’re putting on and in your body, it shouldn’t be hard to navigate. Finding reliable and transparent brands and products should be easy. So here are some things you should know about us:

  • We are consistency auditing our ingredient pantry to ensure we’ve the most up-to-date safety data behind each of our ingredients.
  • From time-to-time knowledge about an ingredient can develop, and if it becomes questionable, we act and remove it from the collection. Some examples:
            • Vitamin A – while we only ever used this ingredient at very low levels, we chose to remove from the range to mitigate any accumulative use by our customers
            • SPF – we’ve used a variety of SPF ingredients over the years. While any health or environmental risk was always extremely low (or unproven), if we felt it necessary, we choose to remove some of these ingredients from the collection.
  • We have rigorous safety testing in place, and each batch of our products is tested to ensure quality and safety for its completely lifecycle.

Let’s take a moment and take a look at salicylic acid. This is a fantastic ingredient to clear skin congestion and surface build up, and we use it in our Balancing Collection. But some customers prefer to avoid this ingredient during pregnancy. Concern comes from the use of very high levels of this ingredient, Salicylic acid is very active. We use it at minimal levels, enough to perform on the skin, without any risk. While there is no safety concern over using this ingredient, we absolutely respect some may wish to avoid it. If this is you, there are three products to steer away:

Clarifying Cleansing Gel

Try Rosehip Transformation Cleansing Oil

Purifying Cleansing Toner

Try Hydrating Mist Toner

Hemphip™ Balancing Oil

Try Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+

So, whether you’re one of the lucky ones and your skin is thriving during pregnancy, or your skin is acting up from all those extra hormones – you can confidently go ahead with any product in our range to extend that fabulous glow, or to target any concerns you’re experiencing.

But there is one product we can’t not talk about when it comes to pregnancy skincare. The epitome of clean beauty, our Certified Organic Rosehip Oil. This multi-tasking wonder oil is a great option for pregnancy care. Not only can it be used all over the body (including the hair, cuticles, and even as a make-up remover), it is ideal to support the skin of a growing baby bump. Clinically proven to reduce the appearance of stretchmarks by 43%*, this wonder oil is as easy as three drops, twice a day, every day for nourished, hydrated and renewed skin.

*Results obtained by expert clinician's assessment. Twice daily use on 10 women over 12 weeks.
