Yes, all LE PURE products can be used by pregnant and breastfeeding women. Our formulations contain the highest quality of certified organic plants and mineral ingredients.
We use essential oils in their physiological dose. The physiological dose describes the quantity of essential oil that is naturally present in a plant, like a tomato or an apple. It gives the plants their characteristic aroma and taste.
Since eating a tomato or an apple during pregnancy is safe, skincare products that contain essential oils in their physiological dose can be applied without any concerns.
Medical professionals often recommend avoiding essential oils during pregnancy and breastfeeding, since there may be cosmetic products that do not respect the physiological dose of the essential oils or use an inferior quality.
During breastfeeding or when the baby is close to the mother’s skin, it can ingest minimal amounts of the LE PURE products that you have applied on your skin. All LE PURE products are made from edible plant and mineral ingredients, which are not harmful for the baby.
The makeup cream Perfecting Illumination and the sun protection balm Zen Solaire contain the mineral Titanium Dioxide, which together with zinc oxide is used in the formulations of all mineral sunscreens.
We consider these minerals safe for everyone, including pregnant and breastfeeding women. A baby that is close to the mother’s face, could potentially ingest very small amounts of the makeup cream or the sunscreen balm. If you are concerned about this, make sure that your baby is not touching or licking your face, when wearing these products.
