True Botanicals has curated a line of pregnancy-safe skincare products that even the most conservative doctor or midwife would approve of.
So while some mums—myself included—feel perfectly comfortable using the entire True Botanicals line while pregnant, what you put on your body is a personal decision you should make with the guidance of your midwife or doctor.
These products aren’t just safe—they actually protect and improve skin throughout the pregnancy.
The True Botanicals Pregnancy-Safe Products
True Botanicals has erred on the side of caution and formulated these products with only the highest-quality ingredients that are widely accepted as safe for developing babies.
The Calm Nutrient Mist ($28) uses blue chamomile to soothe and revive skin. It’s especially beneficial when applied at the same time as the Calm Pure Radiance Oil… this duo makes skin glow.
Like all the facial oils from True Botanicals, the Calm Pure Radiance Oil ($110) is a game-changer. It plumps and softens skin, while reducing the hormonal redness that often accompanies pregnancy.
The Everyday Sheer Coverage SPF 20 ($40) is quite possibly the most important skincare product you can use while pregnant. Because of the hormonal shifts that occur during pregnancy, skin can suddenly become prone to hyperpigmentation, even if it never was before. And it can take years to repair skin if it isn’t properly protected from the sun while pregnant.
The Vitamin C Booster ($90) is one of my all-time favorite skincare products. While pregnant with my second daughter, it helped to repair my skin so that my skin was actually better after my daughter was born than before. You can see my before & after here. It’s a proven way to stimulate collagen and brighten the skin.
The Pre Cleanse Oil ($48) is a must-have if you wear makeup during the day. It loosens dirt, sunscreen, makeup, and environmental grime before properly cleansing the skin. If you haven’t tried oil cleansing before, it’s gonna rock your world.
Nourishing Shampoo ($34) and Nourishing Conditioner ($34): These lightweight products smell like heaven and nourish the hair, from root to end. (You can check out my full review of the shampoo and conditioner here.)
The Nourishing Wash ($28) not only cleans the body but uses an antioxidant-rich formula to prevent and repair damage. It stands out from traditional body washes because it derives its citrus-and-woods scent from natural essential oils and it contains zero harsh SLS.
Body lotion is applied from head to toe, so choosing a safe, natural one is imperative when pregnant. The Nourishing Lotion ($38) uses plant-based ingredients like shea butter and green tea oil to make pregnant skin look absolutely radiant.
Breastfeeding? Here are additional products you’re gonna love.
The products we apply to our skin not only get into our bloodstream, but they can also get into our milk supply. For instance, popular chemical sunscreen agents such as homosalate, octinoxate, and octocrylene can make their way into mother’s milk. That’s why a mindful skincare regimen should continue even after the baby is born.
In addition to the pregnancy-safe products listed above, these RENEW products are totally safe while breastfeeding. The RENEW line provides exceptional anti-aging benefits and are among the top-rated products here on The Beauty Proof.
The Renew Hydrating Cleanser ($48) achieves what few cleanses can do: deep cleansing without drying skin. A combination like this is a must for skin that’s starting to show signs of agin.
The Renew Nutrient Mist ($28) is similar to the Calm Nutrient Mist, but with added anti-aging OOMPH.
The best-selling Renew Pure Radiance Oil ($110) replaces traditional face cream and moisturizer in the most brilliant way. You’ll never look back.
The Renew Repair Serum ($140) is a skin-changing overnight treatment that I’ve personally relied on for years. When you mix a small amount of the Vitamin C Booster into it, you create a world-class skin treatment that rivals peels, lasers, and other pricey procedures.
