Beauty Care Products That Are High In Vitamin A Content Are Safe For Pregnant Women?
, if the rosehip oil is high in vit A, is it safe for pregnant women?
Hello Mrs. Adis! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
That's right Mother, products with high vitamin A can be dangerous for pregnant women. The level of vitamin A (retinoic acid) in rose hip oil is around 0.04%. At these levels, its use is still safe for pregnant women. However, you also need to be careful because there is not enough evidence that shows the safety of using rose hip oil in pregnant women. In general, retinoic acid is quite safe if only used on the skin (outside only). You can discuss this with the obstetrician who usually treats you.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
