Are there any ingredients I should avoid in belly oil?

  • Retinoids- the absorption rate from topical retinoids is low, but there have been a few reports of birth defects possibly associated with skin creams. Until further research is done, it’s not recommended that pregnant women use topical retinoids.
  • Hydroquinone- a depigmenting agent, otherwise known as skin-lightening, is absorbed into the skin at very high rates and shouldn’t be used during pregnancy. Hydroquinone is most likely found in products targeted towards treating acne scars, melasma, and possibly stretch marks.
