The Use Of Creams For Faces That Are Safe For Pregnant Women?
Good afternoon, my wife is pregnant with a 7-month-old uterus at this time. She wants to use a gloglowing skincare that already has her BPO permission with syn-collagen, alpha arbutin, vitamin B3, glutathione, vitamin E, kojic acid, collagen,. BPOM, but I still doubt whether the above content is safe or not for use by pregnant women?
When pregnant, pregnant women should be more careful in the use of cosmetics and skincare, including the selection of face creams. So far there are some ingredients that need to be avoided during pregnancy including retinoids, salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, hydroquinone, mercury, and some antibiotics (usually used in the treatment of acne). The content of other skincare also cannot be ascertained 100% safe because it still requires further research.
Are there any complaints on the wife's skin? If your wife does not have any complaints, it is better for your wife to use a regular moisturizer without whitening accompanied by the use of sunscreen and cleanser that is safe for pregnant women. For skincare whitening products, it will be better if the use is delayed until delivery or after breastfeeding.
However, if your wife feels that her skin has become dull and requires further treatment, I suggest that your wife consult directly with a dermatologist to provide safer skin care for pregnant women. Your wife can also use over-the-counter skincare products / over-the-counter by asking directly about the safety of the product for pregnant women with the manufacturer or beauty advisor on duty.
Hope it helps you,
