Safe Skincare & Cosmetics Use During Pregnancy

Go simple and basic with your skincare, hair care, cosmetics and personal care products – there is no need to spend a lot of money. (Collette says: check out Little Innocents, Bask Aromatherapy and BasiK Organics as a start)

  • Avoid any makeup or skincare product that contains Nano-particle Technology – these particles can be small enough to enter the bloodstream and are thought to cause lung damage, cell toxicity, damage DNA, and possibly even harm unborn children
  • Choose natural and organic skincare, hair care and cosmetics
  • Where possible, also choose unscented skin and hair care products, even those fragrances that use pure essential oils
  • If your natural products do contain essential oils, be sure to check what they are and whether they can be used safely during pregnancy
  • Avoid aluminum deodorants


Hair Colouring Safely While Pregnant

If you absolutely have to colour your hair while your pregnant, then opt to use safer, more natural based products:

  • Try 100% pure henna for something natural, and make sure you are in a very well ventilated area
  • If you are going to use synthetic hair dyes and bleaches, the safest way to do this is to choose foil highlights or low-lights which avoids the product being applied directly onto your scalp, minimizing the skin to product contact
  • Again, make absolutely sure you are in a well ventilated area when visiting a salon, or colouring at home
