Lipsticks are easier to get absorbed into your body while we are eating, drinking or simply just talking. It’s important that at least this makeup product is devoid of all the chemicals which could affect your baby. Most lipsticks contain lead even though the amount varies from one brand to other. Lead has been linked to stillbirth and premature birth.


LUSH believes in making safe and handmade cosmetics using safe synthetics and finest of oils.

 The products are truly pure – no parabens, no GMOs, no nanoparticles, no lead, no aluminium, no chromium, and definitely no artificial preservatives, colours, fragrances, or any petroleum or synthetic by-products. Just good old fashioned natural ingredients.

All of the brands also produce other makeup products which don’t contain any other harmful ingredients. Ingredient absorption from skin makeup and eye makeup is less since absorption through skin takes time but through the mouth, it’s very direct. Therefore, it’s important that you at least substitute your lipstick with natural/lead-free ones.

    I really didn’t realize that most lipsticks contain some level of lead. This would be especially important to avoid while pregnant but I also think it’s probably best to avoid this all together!

    I had no idea about chemicals being absorbed through your lips! It’s a good job I love lush products xx

    It is goof that you make pregnant women aware of the health issues of using cosmetics that are safe. There are a lot of great choices.

    • Reply admin 08/09/2017 at 2:47 pm

      Yes! Some cosmetics are so high on chemicals. And you really don’t want them to harm your baby’s health,

    These are great suggestions and I’m glad to learn about new brands! I especially love Burt’s Bees. I have yet to try their lipstick but their lip balm is a must have.

  • Reply Cynthia 08/09/2017 at 2:17 pm

    Well, to this moment I have to say I never thought of this! I’m almost starting the second trimester and never been a fan of buying brands, but also, I never thought of the dangerous chemicals they could have! So many things to consider when you are pregnant!

  • Reply Carol Cassara 08/09/2017 at 4:49 pm

    These are awesome! I love that you can still use make-up without worrying about your baby! This is definitely a nice gift for moms out there who are expecting!

    It’s great to know that there are cosmetics like this. My daughter just lost her baby and if she’s ever lucky enough to get pregnant again, I’m going to buy these for her.

      That’s great! Wishing her a happy and healthy pregnancy

    I know these are meant for pregnant ladies and yet I love these brands already. I prefer natural products all the time although I’m not sure which of these are available/shipping in India. But I’m gonna try, thanks for sharing.

      Yes, very less are. You can try for international shipping from Lush and Tarte. They will be able to deliver.
