What Products Can I Use When Pregnant?

Your guide to pregnancy skincare.

"In the same year I was pregnant with my first child, I also launched the first Susanne Kaufmann products in the spa at Hotel Post Bezau. I wanted to create a skincare line for the spa that is natural and effective, and yet still perfectly suitable for pregnant women and free-from all toxic ingredients."
Susanne Kaufmann, Founder

Skincare

Pregnancy can trigger a variety of hormonal changes in the body, which can lead to visible changes to the complexion. Common consequences of the hormonal changes include blemishes, pigmentation, and dehydrated skin. Our selection of facial skincare products is recommended for the ultimate regime for combatting such imperfections, helping to balance the skin for a glowing, healthy complexion.

Our Rose Water Mist will provide dehydrated skin with intense, long-lasting hydration. Naturally scented with rose water, the delightful, scented mist will refresh the face, neck, and décolletage. It is formulated with calming ingredients such as witch hazel and moisturising silk proteins - ideal for skin prone to tightness.

The Moisturising Mask is a deeply effective mask for every skin type and will instantly hydrate and the skin. Bee's wax and fine, energy-rich almond oil will deeply nourish the skin, while wheat germ oil promotes the skin’s metabolism to strengthen the skin's tissue. Used as a ten-minute mask or an overnight treatment, it can be used in a way that suits any routine.

The skin on our lips is also prone to moisture loss after pregnancy and during breastfeeding. Our Lip Balm is free of chemical ingredients, providing lips with intense nourishment. The moisturising formula is enriched with vitamin E to care for the skin, smooth fine wrinkles, and protect the lips. The rich formula gives velvety soft lips, without the need to constantly reapply.

Body Care

From even the first trimester of pregnancy, the woman’s body begins to change - a beautiful sign of life being created. Therefore, it is important to care for the skin from the start. Our recommendation of body care products has been chosen for their unique properties and positive effects they have on skin going through change.

One of the most common changes to the skin is the occurrence of stretch marks. Stretch Marks are caused when the skin is stretched, compromising the natural elasticity in the skin. During pregnancy, the body often produces more glucocorticoids in the adrenal cortex, which causes the skin to lose its elasticity. In turn, stretch marks, or striae gravidarum, may appear. These can also be the result of excessive stretching of the dermis during late pregnancy. It is also possible for them to appear after pregnancy, when the skin is contracting to its previous state.

Our Arnica Body Oil contains an intelligent combination of almond oil, wheat germ oil and jojoba oil, that precisely address the needs of the skin during pregnancy. Arnica blossom extract supports the skin’s metabolism and strengthen the skin’s functions. Daily application of this luxurious oil onto moist skin helps to prevent stretch marks and results in supple, velvety soft skin.

The Alkali Salts is a holistic treatment for the body. It helps the skin to deacidify, promotes the elimination of toxins, and releases blocked energy. Mixed with warm water, it is ideal as a footbath during pregnancy. For those with a demanding schedule, this is also a perfect way to be kind to your skin and unwind from the day.

Our Nourishing Rich Cream is not only suitable for the care of dry skin of expecting and new mothers. Active ingredients from pansies and coneflower support the skin's natural regeneration process, relieve the skin's feeling of tension, and restore its elasticity.

Last but not least, the Leg and Vein Spray Cooling was created to eliminate water retention and alleviate tired and heavy legs. A combination of active ingredients such as dandelion and horse chestnut support blood circulation and reduce swelling.

It's always best to be cautious whilst pregnant, so please consult your doctor before using a skincare regime during pregnancy.

Suitable for Pregnancy

Our skin and body care products can be used without hesitation during pregnancy and breastfeeding. All products are free from ingredients such as mineral oils, silicones, and dyes. With Susanne Kaufmann, you can trust that the very best scientific research and highest quality active ingredients found in nature have been used to ensure that every botanical molecule and oil is utilised in its purest and most effective form.
