Cosmetics while pregnant

Hi, I' m 8 weeks pregnant. I' ve read that pregnant women should be careful about what cosmetics they use (eg. anti-ageing creams with vitamin A or certain exfoliators). I use dermalogica products. Are they safe to use ? should I try and find products that have more natural ingredients and less chemicals, or am I being paranoid ?

Very little is absorbed through the skin but, if you want to be absolutely correct, avoid products with retinoids.
