This lotion is safe for babies, so I would guess it's okay for mommies, too. Congrats on your little one!

The ingredient list includes methylparaben, which is a suspected to be a weak endocrine disruptor, as well as triethanolamine, EDTA, and tocopherol acetate, and the camphor smell may be irritating to you. These are not risk-free ingredients, so you'll have to compare them with your other options and the products you're already using and decide for yourself.
Of course, take the list of ingredients to your doctors to be sure. Also, check the Skin Deep database site for more detailed descriptions of the overall toxicity of the product and the specific ingredients.

I really don't know. I would think being pregnant wouldn't have any effect one way or the other.

Print out the products ingredients sheet and consult with your doctor.
***Medicated refers to the camphor base. Seems pretty safe overall!***

As a nurse, I suggest you speak to your doctor about using any product that you are unsure of. Please do not rely on the advice of others who may not specialize in treating pregnant women. No one knows your medical history better than your own doctor.

The main ingredient is glycerin, which is used in many lotions and washes. Ingredients like this are only harmful if you happen to have an allergy to it. If you are worried about anything harming you or your baby during pregnancy, the best place to get information is your doctor. Hope this helps!

the medicated ingredients are either menthol or camphor. Not sure if they are safe for pregnant women. I would worry more about the parabans and phythalates in other makeup foundations or lotions before I would worry about this product, but that's just me.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Synthetic Dyes

No worries - although it says medicated, the medication is camphor.

I cannot see that this cream would be any different than using Neosporin or some other topical ointment , especially those containing camphor, during pregnancy. I would feel safe using it without a second thought
