Please Gynae
I am using a product for acne, called Skin Free. It contains sandalwood- is this safe to use during pregnancy?
I've chatted to another lady on thisd forum, and she says she's using it at 9 wks.

The information on sandalwood in pregnancy is contradictory. Some sources say it is safe to use, others say it should be avoided. Like many of the herbal remedies, there is just not enough information to say for sure.
