OB/GYN Advisor for Pregnancy Safe Skincare: Dr. Sunaina Sehwani

Pregnancy should be a time to embrace self-care, and practice your mama-nurturing instincts on YOU.  With lengthy ingredient lists full of 5 syllable, synthetic ingredients, finding skincare products you feel safe using while pregnant and breastfeeding can be....challenging.  We get it.  That's why Britt (our founder/Chief Mom Officer) started kitchen crafting her own skincare products, and eventually launched Paraguas Beauty to help other mamas get their Glow On.  

The Paraguas Beauty promise: 

NATURAL AND ORGANIC INGREDIENTS
.
SIMPLE FORMULATIONS (5 INGREDIENTS OR LESS)
.
OBGYN REVIEWED PRODUCTS 
.
That last point is important.  There are many natural and organic ingredients that are perfectly safe to use when you are NOT pregnant or breastfeeding, and while our products can be enjoyed and loved by all, we very specifically crafted them for mamas who ARE pregnant and breastfeeding.
....
Dr. Sunaina Sehwani is our Long Beach, CA local and loved OBGYN partner who helps us protect and support our mama tribe with pregnancy-safe skincare products.

“Britt’s passion for finding the perfect skin care product for pregnant and breastfeeding moms is amazing. She knew what she wanted to curate and took her time in bringing it to life. Just like a pregnancy, good things take time.”

~ Dr. Sehwani

While we strive to ensure all Paraguas Beauty products are safe for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding, every woman's pregnancy, symptoms and potential risk factors are unique.  Your doctor is your best resource for any questions or concerns you might have regarding safety.
