Dear dr. todorov
I am 7 weeks pregnant now. Could you please tell me which cosmetic ingredients I should be aware of. I was using a serum with peptides and sometimes AHA and BHA creams. Hydroquinone for my brown spots. I am now confused because my pysician told me that he has not a reliable data for cosmetic ingredients and I should stop using everything. Another dr told me that except retinoids and vitamin A, everything is considered "safe". What can I do? Could you please give me some sources to read about cosmetic ingredients and hair coloring, nail colors etc during pregnancy.
Thanks

I am not a clinician, I am a research scientist, so you should consult your doctors.

As far as I know, you dr is right that retinoids and supplemental vitamin A pose risks during pregnancy and should be avoided. It may be prudent to avoid hydroquinone too. There is no data on most cosmetic ingredients as far as I know.
