Yes: Facial cleansers without Retin-A are safe in pregnancy. So in general, if you got it over the counter without a prescription, you can continue your skin care routine throughout your pregnancy.

Yes: As a rule, as long as facial cleansers contain no retinal or Vit A derivatives, such as this product, you need not be concerned. This product is a derivative of papaya, and should be safe as directed
