Is the use of flat iron spray w/argon oil and and lotion for stretch marks w/vite, collagen, cocoa butter safe during pregnancy? Many prods w/alcohol
Yes, however...: All of these should be quite safe. Alcohol should not be significantly absorbed into your skin, certainly not enough to harm your baby. However, some skin products do contain chemicals that can harm fetuses. Visit http://www.Ewg.Org/skindeep/ to check these products (it does mention moderate hazard of flat iron spray due to allergy potential but it has low developmental ; reproductive toxicity). ...Read more
Is the ingredients mention below suitable for pregnant woman 1) Collagen peptide 2) perilla seed extract 3) silk protein 4) soy isolfavone?
Forget this stuff.: Take your prenatal vitamins, folic acid, calcium and Vit. D and nothing else. All of those products are poorly studied and there is very little responsible, independent testing to determine if they actually work or if they may have side effects, or harm fetuses. Also the companies have different ways of making up these pills. Save your money and spend it on plenty of fruits and veggies instead. ...Read more

I take flp product containing stabilized aloevera gel, fructose, natural cranberry and apple juice, sorbitol, ascorbic and citric acids. What are uses?
Many uses: I'm curious why you're taking a product you don't know the use for. The active ingredient is aloe vera gel- everything else is for flavor or preservatives. Aloe vera has many proven health benefits- it helps reduce inflammation, lowers blood sugar & cholesterol, soothes inflamed GI tracts, etc. You might look for aloe with less added sugars.

Is vaping with 0mg nicotine safe while pregnant (To help ease the habit)? The ingredients are: water, propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin,& flavoring
Not recomended: inhaling aerosolized chemicals isnt best for you or for the baby. Vaping is a new product in the market and the effect on lungs/babies are still not fully understood. I would use this time to kick the habit to ensure that you give your baby the full potential to grow without interruptions by potential stressors like smoke ...Read more
What are the benefits of taking collagen capsules? 4 capsules daily. Hydrolyzed marine collagen and elastin polypeptides.
Not much evidence: There aren't a lot of studies out that have tested the health effects of all these collegen supplements.One study found that it does not really help with bone health,and another showed some preservation of lean body mass in older women but no skin improvement.It seems that elastin skin products have not shown clinically to improve elasticity of the skin but do help the skin hold moisture. ...Read more
Certainly : Since dietary supplements are not monitored by the FDA or by any regulatory agency, there could be any ingredients in there that are not apparent. Therefore there certainly could be gluten. It could even be in the capsule itself. No guarantees here if you need to be gluten-free. Good luck. ...Read more
DERMATOLOGISTS: Will taking collagen capsules help with fine lines over time? Ingredients:hydrolyzed marine collagen, elastin polypeptides
I really doubt it.: Protein is digested and absorbed. It's doubtful that a small amount of a particular protein is going to be 'special' compared to a burger. Less collagen, degraded protein loss of subcutaneous fat are aging features that promote crow's feet and specific dietary proteins just aren't going to change any of that. ...Read more

"Buyer beware": It is uncertain what harm or what good a substance will do for a breastfeeding mother and her breastfed baby, if the substance is not a real medicine, tested and tested again, approved by the FDA, and with known effects and side effects. Buyer beware. User beware. It is best to stick with real medicines when it is needed, because we have more certainty about a real drug's composition, purity, etc. ...Read more
Is topically using coconut oil, castor oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil & aloe vera gel (as homemade lash/brow serum) safe to use during pregnancy?
Pregnancy-safe oils: Castor oil and sweet almond oil may bring on early labor, if used earlier than term. Coconut oil and olive oil are safe in pregnancy. Topical vitamin E oil is felt to be safe, but may cause contact dermatitis in some people, as can topical aloe vera. "When in doubt, leave it out" applies in pregnancy. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20306538 ...Read more
