What skincare ingredients to avoid while breastfeeding?

We spend so much time worrying about what not to eat, drink or smoke while pregnant or breastfeeding.. but what about skincare routines? For 9 months you carefully monitored everything you put into your body. You cut your caffeine consumption or wine, avoided sushi and everything listed. While when I was pregnant  and breastfeeding I was very conscientious about what I was eating and drinking (even what my husband was) I was less aware of the harmful effects that other items they use might have on their baby. Skincare, Haircare even cleaning products all have an impact on your skin and inside.

A list of skincare products you may want to avoid while breastfeeding:

  • Retinoic acid

  • Retin-A

  • Retinol

  • Retinyl linoleate or palmitate

  • Diferin

  • Razarotene or tazorac and avage

  • Retinoids (listed above)

  • Oxybenzone

  • Octinoxate

  • Retinoids

  • BHA or Beta Hydroxy acid

  • Salicylic acid (or choose products that contain no more than 2%)


When I created Nuez Acres line i had this idea of creating healthy beauty products, i never thought of offering our line as a safe alternative while breastfeeding to toxic skincare out there. I would suggest lathering yourself and your baby in our 100% Pure Pecan Oil no additives, no fragrance and no parabens. 

I also suggest my favourite and our top seller Repair Serum for your evening routine. This will get you that glow all day long with no make up needed.
