16th March 2011 13:06Okay so I have read that salicylic acid should be avoided in pregnancy. This ingredient is commonly found in acne treatments/facial scrubs and so I have avoided them. I am using Garnier Fresh Essentials toner and noticed that there is "Benzyl Salicylate" listed on the ingredients. So I just checked the ingredients in my moisturiser (Oil of Olay) and again this Benzyl Salicylate is contained. Has anyone any advice in relation to this? Should it be avoided altogether? And if so can you recommend alternative creams? Maybe I'm over-reacting but it's so hard to know if you're keeping babs safe!
