Pregnant women are used to hearing the warnings from their ob-gyns about which foods and medications to avoid, but surprisingly no one informs them about which skin care ingredients could be potentially harmful to their unborn child through topical absorption. Many of the ingredients used in beauty products are normally safe, but when applied during pregnancy are actually linked to birth defects and miscarriage.

They explain the ingredients to watch for on labels and identify the safest products across major brands. But pregnancy and motherhood doesn’t have to mean a ban on beauty!
