Maternity & cosmetics

Two people to pamper for 9 months… And ever after!

You are about to become a mother and when you think about your skin, terms like endocrine disruptors or slow cosmetics come to mind. And one question among many: how do I continue to take care of myself while making sure I don’t put my baby at risk? Let’s discuss this together.

My pregnancy

My skin

My hormones

My skin

Pregnancy is a particular period in life that will put your skin to the test: physical transformation and hormonal disruption in particular. 

And all this while paying even more attention to the products you can use!

My baby first

The ingredients in the creams that you use everyday can penetrate the body and expose your baby to substances that are potentially toxic for it: its health and good development are then at risk. It is essential to be very vigilant about the products you will use. We tell you what to avoid in our INGREDIENT BLACKLIST.

Raging hormones

Being pregnant also means producing many more female hormones, which has several consequences: 

  • Your skin is drier, it feels tight and becomes less supple. To keep your skin healthy and comfortable, it is necessary to moisturize it daily.
  • Your skin is more fragile and sensitive. Some of your usual beauty products cause skin reaction that you are not used to.
  • Your skin is photosensitive. Your hormones stimulate the production of melanin: the pigment responsible for tanning. Watch out for brown spots and hyperpigmentation on your skin. The only solution: protect yourself from the sun!
  • Your skin can develop acne spurts, under the action of oestrogens. It then needs to be purified daily with a cleansing lotion or micellar water.

A great strain on your body

Cortisol, a hormone produced during pregnancy, causes your body to decrease collagen production. The skin loses its elasticity while tissue regeneration is limited. Also, as soon as you gain a few pounds, the skin becomes distended, stretches and stretch marks may appear, usually on the chest, hips, buttocks, stomach or thighs. Prevention remains the best way to avoid them. The application of moisturizing and emollient care on these sensitive areas makes it possible to limit the appearance of stretch marks by restoring the skin’s natural suppleness, while helping it to replenish itself.

Superior action against stretch marks

The role of vegetal glycerin:

  • Known for being an excellent emollient, Vegetal Glycerin helps restore the skin’s suppleness and natural elasticity. 
  • Thanks to its hygroscopic properties, that is to say its ability to attract water to it, it effectively fights against skin dryness by retaining water in the layers of the epidermis. It helps to maintain perfect skin hydration, according to a natural mechanism.

Activifique™ : amplifies what nature can do most effectively for your skin

The proprietary patented technology of Skintifique, ACTIVIFIQUE™ allows a gradual and lasting release of Vegetal Glycerin

  • Acting as a reservoir for active ingredients, ACTIVIFIQUE™ makes possible an exceptional concentration of Vegetal Glycerin: 2 to 6x more than other stretch creams using this active ingredient. It is this reservoir that makes the long-lasting action of the Hydrating Gel Plus HS possible 
  • Most importantly, ACTIVIFIQUE™ interprets skin signals. The release of Vegetal Glycerin is done gradually and only when the skin needs it, increasing its benefits on the treated area and lengthening the duration of its effectiveness
