Can Nursing Mothers Use Serum Niacinamide And Zinc?
Good morning. I want to ask, is the face serum with the content below safe to use for nursing mothers? The content I mean is Ascorbic Acid, Squalane, Isodecyl Neopentanoate, Isononyl Isononanoate, Coconut Alkanes, Ethylene / Propylene / Styrene Copolymer, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Glucomannan, Coco-Caprylate / Caprate, Butylene / Ethylene / Styrene Copolymer, Acrylates / Ethylhexyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Trihydroxystearin, BHT.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. As pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, indeed we must be aware of what we consume and use, because there are potential chemicals that are categorized as dangerous for the fetus or baby, even though it is safe for adults. Some of the drugs that are safe for consumption in adult women even have the potential to cause miscarriage or other developmental problems for the fetus, so in this case, it is better to be careful and ask everything in advance to the doctor.
Regarding your question, for breastfeeding mothers these ingredients can be said to be safe, with only a little or nothing at all that can go into breast milk to be consumed by the baby. However, there are still a number of other materials including those that have not been fully investigated for their potential absorption and impact, and there are some that can be safe in small amounts but dangerous in large quantities, depending on how wide the area is applied and how thick the layer.
Therefore even though it is generally safe for nursing mothers, it would be better if you also consult a dermatologist to be sure. Your dermatologist will also be able to assess your other skin care products, perfumes or cosmetics and help determine which you can use and which should be avoided first. So, hopefully answering your question.
