If you’ve ever been pregnant you’ve already been bombarded with the do’s and don’ts of pregnancy. Some advice is intuitive like: see your doctor regularly; eat healthy food; and get plenty of sleep. Other subjects, like personal care products require patience to squint your way through complex lists of ingredients trying to determine what’s safe and what’s not.

Previse is clean and free from ALL of the following ingredients.

[gdlr_accordion style=”style-1″ initial=”1″]
[gdlr_tab title=”RETINOIDS”]Retinoids are vitamin A derivatives that are used to treat acne and psoriasis in addition to photoaging and skin wrinkles. They can accelerate cell division and help prevent skin collagen from breaking down. While vitamin A is crucial to the proper development of an unborn child, getting too much can cause serious birth defects. To be on the safe side, you may want to avoid oral retinoids and topical retinoids.[/gdlr_tab]
[gdlr_tab title=”HYDROXY ACIDS”]Hydroxy acids such as beta hydroxyl acid (BHA) and alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) can be found in cleansers, toners and exfoliants used to treat acne and skin inflammation. Salicylic acid is one of the most common BHAs listed in skin care ingredients. Studies have shown that women who take the oral form of salicylic acid were found to have a higher risk of birth defects, miscarriage, heart and lung problems for the baby and bleeding issues for both the mother and infant. Although studies have not been conducted on topical forms of salicylic during pregnancy, doctors recommend that pregnant women avoid using salicylic acid until the child is born.[/gdlr_tab]
[gdlr_tab title=”TOULENE”]Toluene can be found in most mainstream nail polishes because it gives a nice smooth finish and helps everything to dry quicker. Inhaling toluene can be toxic to just about anybody. The E.P.A. says in a fact sheet that it can impair cognitive and kidney function. In addition, repeated exposure during pregnancy can “adversely affect the developing fetus,” according to the agency.[/gdlr_tab]

[gdlr_tab title=”PHTHALATES”]Phthalates are added to plastic in a wide range of consumer products because they make plastics more flexible and less brittle. In personal care products, phthalates are used to help dissolve other ingredients into a consistent solution, to make nail polishes less brittle and to keep hair spray from making hair too stiff. However, multiple studies — both in animals and humans — have found that phthalates might have some effects on hormones.[/gdlr_tab]

[gdlr_tab title=”FORMALDEHYDE”]Formaldehyde, best known for its use in embalming, is a hardening agent in nail products. The National Center for Biotechnology Information noted that being exposed to formaldehyde is not good during pregnancy because of it being linked to spontaneous abortion, congenital malformations, and premature birth.[/gdlr_tab]
