Your baby is on the way. Congratulations! A lot is happening inside and outside your body throughout this miraculous process. And it's more important than ever to both take care of your skin and avoid ingredients that could be harmful to your baby's development.
If you find the sheer number of product options and ingredient lists downright overwhelming, you're not alone. As we've charted our own non-toxic and parenthood journeys, we've discovered several brands that uphold similar standards to our own here at Humble. These are our top recommendations for natural skin care products for pregnant mothers:
The masterminds behind Belli Skincare are a husband and wife duo with backgrounds in medicine and beauty. Their company specializes in pregnancy skin care. Every product is made with pregnancy and nursing-safe ingredients that will have you feeling like you've spent a day at the spa. Every product is free of phthalates, artificial fragrances and colors, parabens, and is allergy-tested. Find solutions for face and body ailments– From acne to stretch marks.
Started by an Oregon mom who happens to be a nurse and herbalist, Earth Mama is a great choice for all-natural maternity skincare. What’s nice about this company is that their line includes personal care products for use during and after pregnancy. From their foot soak and bath herbs to body and nipple butter, each and every product is certified organic and made with natural ingredients. We give Earth Mama extra points for using BPA-free, recycled plastic in their packaging. Also, Earth Mama (we also love the name) sells herbal teas that soothe some of the discomforts that come with pregnancy.
All Green Goo products are plant-based and infused with enriching natural oils. Their Mama + Baby line is formulated to be especially gentle and address mama's skin concerns during pregnancy, as well as mama and baby post-birth. We love that their products are safe enough to use on baby's super sensitive skin. Stock up on their belly balm while your baby grows inside, and be sure to have their Herbal Sitz Bath, Nursing Comfort Salve, and Baby Balm on hand for after your little one arrives.
We hope these natural skin care solutions for pregnant mothers help you feel your best during this exciting but uniquely challenging time. And rest assured that Humble products are totally safe to continue using during pregnancy, with the exception of our CBD products, which we do not recommend until post-pregnancy and nursing.
