In this blog pot we will list some ingredients to steer clear from that can be found in beauty products. We will also share some products we have found that are free from all the above nasty ingredients and safe to use by pregnant and breast feeding women.

Stretch Mark Lotion
GAIA Pure Pregnancy Belly Butter cream has been tried and tested by many pregnant women and they all raved that they did not get any stretch marks! Gaia Belly Butter will leave your ‘baby bump’ soft and supple. It can also be used on breasts too.
In this post we have outlined a few products such as nail polish, tanning lotions and hair dye that may contain some of the nasty ingredients we talked about. We recommend to always check the ingredients label of the products you use if you are pregnant or breast feeding just to make sure there are no nasties in there that could be potentially harmful for your baby.
We would love to hear your thoughts on this topic. If you know of any other potentially harmful ingredients that probably shouldn’t be used by pregnant women or breastfeeding women we would love to hear from you.
