Look beautiful with a baby on board

Lightweight facial serum and multitasking gel-cream for moms.

Considering the special needs of pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, Pattamon Kerdlappol founded the PregSkin brand to help them look good during these precious chapters in a woman's life

Seven years ago, the Thai biochemist became aware of their concerns when she conducted research on skincare at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in the US.

Pregnancy-related skin problems include acne, dark spots, stretch marks and skin dryness or oiliness. Following the extensive research, Pattamon selected natural ingredients, safe for both moms and babies, for the formulation of PregSkin Blemish Control Skin-Clearing Serum, Brightening Age-Defying Moisturizing Facial Cream and Intensive Hydrating Stretch Mark Butter.

Likewise, her research looked into harmful compounds that are excluded from PregSkin products.

"Pregnant and breastfeeding moms are confused with all the choices to make for their skincare and beauty regimen," she said. "Among the many ingredients to avoid during your pregnancy, vitamin A derivatives or retinoids are the No.1 'no-no' ingredients during this period."

Other "no-no" ingredients include salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. Moreover, controversial ingredients in the grey zone are also on her blacklist.

The retinoids are replaced by an extract from Bidens pilosa, a herb native to South America, traditionally used by indigenous Amazonians for various medicinal purposes.

Also suitable for sensitive skin, PregSkin lightweight facial serum and gel-cream contain Bidens pilosa extract in cottonseed and linseed oils as well as other botanical ingredients, and hyaluronic acid.

Organic alpine horehound extract and vitamins address stretch marks upon application of the rich body butter, onto tummy, thighs, hips or other troubled areas.
