Are Beautycounter products safe for pregnant and nursing mothers?
Yes. All of Beautycounter's products are safe to use during pregnancy and nursing. We screen every ingredient for safety, keeping those especially vulnerable – like pregnant women and babies – in mind.
Many pregnant women are concerned with the use of essential oils. The essential oil fragrance blends for all of our scented products are between 1-3% of the product formula, except for the face oils and body oils, which are higher. If a client is concerned about using a product with a higher percentage of essential oils she can use them on occasion instead of daily, or just put a couple of drops of oil in the face creams or Hydrate body lotion.
Of course, our products are much safer than the vast majority of those on the market, including products with or without essential oils. Most "fragrances" in personal care products contain hormone disruptors like musks and phthalates, which are really concerning for pregnant women. It is not uncommon to see reproductive toxins and chemicals linked to cancer and other serious health impacts in products marketed to women of childbearing age, and even marketed specifically to pregnant women and new moms. At Beautycounter, we always tell you everything that is in the product – no hidden fragrance ingredients, preservatives or contaminates.
