Pregnant use it A face products
I have heard from several people that it is not advisable to use skin products containing vitamin A and retinol while pregnant. Is there any truth in this?

Tiffany, it is difficult to predict the absorption of these products through the skin and as vitamin A and it’s derivatives are dangerous to the foetus, we advice against it. Good luck.
