I know some plant/fruit extracts are apparently unsafe to take orally when pregnant, but what about moisturisers/cosmetics which contain plant/fruit extracts that are applied topically?
I have a sunscreen, foundation, concealer and eyelash gel (and maybe other stuff) containing various extracts and not sure if these are safe. If they were unsuitable for pregnant women, would it state so on the label?
Bit unsure as for example I know salicylic acid is not supposed to be used during pregnancy, but I'm sure I've seen skin products containing salicylic acid which have nothing on their labels to say don't use if pregnant.
Does all this depend on quantities of product used?
I'm in the UK, if that makes any difference?
Thank you for any replies! I know I've asked a couple of pregnancy related questions, but want to be prepared!
