Clean Beauty During Pregnancy
Why Clean Beauty is Important During Pregnancy
You may have just found out you’re pregnant and though you are excited to bring a new addition to the family, it can also be a time of increased concern for the safety and health of both mother and baby. One area of concern that has been gaining attention in recent years is the use of beauty and personal care products during pregnancy. With the rise of the clean beauty movement, many expectant mothers are looking for ways to minimize their exposure to potentially harmful chemicals and ingredients in these products.
Clean beauty refers to the use of products that are free from harsh chemicals and synthetic ingredients, and are made with natural, organic, and non-toxic ingredients. This includes products for skincare, makeup, hair care, and personal care.
During pregnancy, a woman's body goes through many changes, and her skin can become more sensitive and prone to irritation. At Cleo+Coco, we know how important it is to provide personal care products that are free of harsh scents that are an irritant to the baby and the mom; We pride ourselves on creating formulas that are gentle and non-irritating, and that are free from known toxins such as parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde, and synthetic fragrances. Parabens and Phthalates are known endocrine disruptors, and formaldehyde is a known carcinogen, all of which can be potentially harmful for you and the baby!
When looking for clean beauty products, it is important to check the ingredient list and look for products that are free from these harmful chemicals. Many clean beauty brands will clearly label their products as "paraben-free," "phthalate-free," or "formaldehyde-free" on the packaging. It's also a good idea to look for products that are certified organic or made with natural ingredients, as these products are less likely to contain harmful chemicals.
It's also important to be mindful of the ingredients in personal care products such as shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. These products can be absorbed through the skin and may contain harmful chemicals such as sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium lauryl ether sulfate, and cocamide DEA that can be harmful to both mother and baby. Clean beauty brands offer a wide range of personal care products that are free from harsh chemicals and made with natural, non-toxic ingredients.
We want you and your baby to be safe, happy and healthy (even when you arent pregnant!) Clean beauty products are an excellent option for expectant mothers as they are free from harsh chemicals and synthetic ingredients. Cleo+Coco’s products care for you, your family and the environment with our clean personal care products free of toxins, chemicals and synthetic ingredients!
