Is It Safe For Breastfeeding Mothers To Use Whitening Creams?
Afternoon doc I asked, my child is now 13 months old, I started to use lc beauty BPOM cream, because it is safe for pregnant women and breastfeeding, about 2 are safe or not, doc.
Good afternoon Shafaanggun, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.
We cannot know for certain the contents of the product that you are offering. It should be stressed that all BPOM products, even though they are listed on the BPOM list, do not rule out the possibility of being withdrawn from circulation because of their harmful contents, therefore it is not certain that the skincare that you are using now is completely safe for fetuses and breastfed babies.
In general, topical / topical ingredients that should be avoided by pregnant women include:
Retinoids: all vitamin A derivatives that are commonly found in skincare products that are antiaging, lightening, anti-wrinkle, or acne medications. Included in this group: retinoid acid, retinaldehyde, tretinoin, isotretinoin, adapalene, tazarotene, reyinyl palmitate, retinaldehyde, and others. Retinoids can interfere with embryonic and fetal development in terms of nerves. Must be stopped using at least 1 month before planning to get pregnant (both those that are taken by mouth and smeared)
Hydroquinone: an ingredient that is commonly found in skin whitening products, which is an ingredient that interferes with fetal development /
Materials that interfere with hormones: generally interfere with estrogen levels and are anti-androgenic, not good for the fetus and baby especially in the development of fetal sexual organs; can also affect maternal thyroid hormones which affect neuronal development and fetal cognition. Materials that include hormone disruptors include: BPA (bisphenol A), chemical UV filters, benzophenone, oxybenzone, octinoxate, avobenzone, octocrylene, octisalate.

While ingredients that are safe for pregnant and lactating women include: azelaic acid, glycerin, glyceryl stearate, glycolic acid, stearic acid and sulfur.
I suggest that if you want to use skincare during pregnancy and breastfeeding, use skincare that has completely known contents so that it can be ascertained not to endanger the fetus and breastfed babies and can also be consulted with a doctor or dermatologist and a specialist.
All of our suggestions and answers, hopefully useful, good afternoon.
