Safe skincare for you and baby

Taking care of your skin is important and at no time is this more relevant than during pregnancy. Read about an essential oil range that is safe for moms and babies.


Taking care of your skin is important and at no time is this more relevant than during pregnancy. At this beautiful time in a woman’s life you want your skin to feel as cared for and nourished as possible.

Pregnancy takes a serious toll on your body and you need to ensure you are taking extra care of your skin. For this reason you need to be more aware than ever about the products you use and the chemicals that go into them. Certain chemicals can pose a serious threat to your unborn child so extra attentiveness must be taken to ensure you are using toxic-free products.

A recent toxics coalition report has identified that chemicals in certain beauty products can disrupt women’s development and hormonal systems. As a precaution, chemicals such as retinoids (found in many anti aging moisturisers) and salicylic acid (used to cleanse and treat certain skin disorders) should ideally be avoided.

Decléor recognises the need for products that are 100% safe for women to use at this time in their lives. Ensuring all products are ‘baby-safe’ and toxic free go hand in hand with Decléor’s promise to provide essential oils for essential beauty. Your beauty regime does not have to stop when you are pregnant, extra care just needs to be taken to protect both you and your baby. With the Decléor product range you thankfully don’t have to worry.  

Decléor particularly caters to pregnant women in their Aroma Sculpt range which provides safe and effective stretch mark treatment. Studies have shown that over 90 percent of women develop stretch marks during the sixth and seventh months of pregnancy, making this type of product a necessity.

“Pregnant women also have to be careful with essential oils. Some oils are very stimulating and can accelerate your heart rythym. As a consequence the baby’s heart rate increases and this can sometimes lead to a miscarriage. It is important to be aware that like black pepper and sage only some essential oils have this effect.

At Decléor we ensure that we avoid these elements in our products at all cost. All our products are therefore safe for pregnant women.  Our Aroma Sculpt range has been specifically tested by gynaecologists so that it can be used during pregnancy and afterwards when breast feeding,” says Perrine Gallant, International trainer for Decléor.  

Decléor has been pampering woman for decades. Their top priority is to provide quality skin and beauty care and they are able to do this in a toxic-free and safe way for you and your baby.
