Know retinol can't be used on your skin if you're pregnant, but what about retinyl palmitate?
  • I have quite a few makeup items (eg concealer and blusher) containing retinyl palmitate and was wondering if these need to be avoided too?

    I assume the quantities present in makeup would be very small and have no effect so it's OK to use when pregnant, but can anyone confirm this?

    Thanks-I know I've asked a couple questions recently! :-)
  • We know that retinol palmitate converts to retinol on the skin. Unfortunately, we don't know exactly how much of it converts (probably not 100%) and we don't know how much retinyl palmitate is in their formula anyway. 

    The only to be 100% sure is to avoid those products.  
  • Thanks so much for the quick reply!

Howdy, Stranger!
