Buy organic stuff without those ingredients if you are worried. If not, continue to use the regular stuff (like 99% of the population do). The paraben etc debate will run and run so you just need to make a personal call on it. I have 6 fabulous nieces and nephews all who were 'in utero' while lancome etc etc were used so i doubt it is an issue- but if you think it is, switch to natural products, simples. Me- i use a mixture of natural/lancome type products..

Go to the NHS choices page and search there. Underneath, there's a place where you can ask and a professional will answer with accurate info.

This was a post by some non-medical folk googling long words with no understanding of (a) the amounts found in things and (b) how they are absorbed. Pure panic. If you're going to fill a car with petrol, breathe in an inner city, wear high street bought clothes etc' your exposed to so many things daily.

Literally EVERYTHING is dangerous according to Dr Google.

??? Cleanser is fine.

I'm not even reading that link because it's just scaring pregnant women and as if we haven't got enough to worry about. I can't see it being a problem unless your drink it,

If we had to avoid every thing we wouldn't be able to walk out side breathing in petrol fumes .

Will be fine smile

a friend of mine swore off all makeup, body sprays and perfume etc whilst pregnant. I am a first time mum to be so may well eat my words but just remember thinking at the time what a lot of cr@p(!) and that she looked a mess!!
