    My face wash has 2%. I used it all through my pregnancy. I have a healthy 4 week old.

    MamaWilson :  My OB’s office wrote a pamphlet for patients.  I looked it up and it says, re: acne treatment during pregnancy “over the counter acne treatment products with salicylic acid should be avoided.  It is OK to use products containing lactic acid or benzoyl peroxide.  Please talk with your provider about any prescription medications that may be needed.”

    I have terribly acne probe skin. I have 10% salycylic acid in my regimen just to keep those buggers at bay. I had a healthy pregnancy. All’s well that ends well! smile

    I kept using acne products during my pregnancy, and I have a healthy 17-month old! I found on a website (a Pediatric one), that you use so little of that 1%, that it really won’t impact anything.
