Pregnant? Know this about Retinol and Vitamin A

Here’s everything you need to know about using Vitamin A and Retinol during pregnancy and breastfeeding. From safety advice to natural alternatives to retinol, we answer your questions.

Can I use retinol when I am pregnant and breastfeeding?  

Oral and topical prescription strength Vitamin A medication should be avoided during pregnancy. Whilst there is no data to suggest that applying over-the-counter retinol (non-prescription) can be harmful in pregnancy, we recommend speaking to your doctor before beginning or continuing the use of any vitamin A Formulations during this time.



If you have any concerns or further questions about using active ingredients in skincare during pregnancy, we recommend consulting your Medical Practitioner.

I Want to Use a Natural Alternative During Pregnancy. What Can I Use?

For skin seeking a botanical alternative to retinol, bakuchiol is suitable for all skin types and beneficial for sensitive skin. It improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while gently nourishing the complexion.

Is Bakuchiol as Effective as Retinol?

Like retinol, bakuchiol rejuvenates the skin and visibly improves skin firmness and signs of hyperpigmentation. While retinol may exhibit a faster delivery, bakuchiol achieves its skin benefits with a gentler approach, introducing the skin to benefits similar to those achieved by retinol.

What Active Ingredients Can I Use Whilst Pregnant to Help With Appearance of Fine Lines and Hyperpigmentation?

Vitamin C is a beneficial ingredient that can be used during pregnancy, effectively improving the appearance of hyperpigmentation, and addressing uneven skin tone commonly associated with hormonal changes. Moreover, the addition of solar protective actives, such as Zinc Oxide, optimizes protection to prevent undesirable changes to the complexion.
