Acne during pregnancy

Hi,

I' m only a few weeks pregnant but my skin has gone a little mental. I recently heard about a product called Sensiclear that contains
ACTIVE INGREDIENT: SALICYLIC ACID 0.50%

INGREDIENTS

* WATER (AQUA)
* CYCLOPENTASILOXANE
* DIMETHYL ISOSORBIDE
* CETEARYL ETHYLHEXANOATE
* BUTYLENE GLYCOL
* POLYSILICONE-11
* POLYMETHYLSILESQUIOXANE
* POTASSIUM CETYL PHOSPHATE
* C12-16 ALCOHOLS
* HDI/TRIMETHYLOL HEXYLLACTONE CROSSPOLYMER
* COPERNICIA CERIFERA (CARNAUBA) WAX
* FRAGRANCE (PARFUM)
* CETETH-20
* GLYCERYL BEHENATE
* HYDROGENATED LECITHIN
* HYDROXYANASATIL RETINOATE
* PALMITIC ACID
* ISOHEXADECANE
* AMMONIUM POLYACRYLOYLDIMETHYL TAURATE
* POLYSORBATE 80
* SODIUM COCAMIDOPROPYL PG-DIMONIUM CHLORIDE PHOSPHATE
* TRIETHANOLAMINE
* CAPRYLYL GLYCOL
* PHENOXYETHANOL
* HEXYLENE GLYCOL
* BHT

Can you tell me if any of these ingredients would be harmful to the baby. I' m a little desperate .

Thanks.

Most creams are not absorbed to any great extent, but I cannot give you an absolute answer. It is best to avoid using anything in the first trimester.
