Skin care? Oy.

I have super dry and sensitive skin and I am very fair, so I need strong sunscreen (only one I have found does not give me eczema...Arvene). I am super concerned about phthalates and bpas, and petrochemicals, but I have a great system I had refined for my skin during non pregnancy.

But now I want to get ready for switching my product line before transfer.

My cousin sells Arbonne, and I like it, but it is not specifically pregnancy safe. I mean, hydroxys and salicyc acids are fine EXCEPT when pregnant...

Anyone thinking about this?

I like European products made in Europe, because EU standards are way higher for safety than the US, but they are not super easy to find. I used to find good stuff at CVS, but I guess they did not sell enough, because they have fewer than they used to.

Lavera? Burt's Bees (which is owned by Proctor and Gamble now, or something...not sure).

Products need to be free of all tetragenic stuff, even things like rosemary oil and aloe hydroxys and salicyc acids...

I feel sort of overwhelmed in finding a choice...
