hi everyone!<br><br>
I'm in the 8th week pregnant and I just found out that I shouldn't use my favorite face scrub no more because of the salicylic asid in there, so I went to the store and bought some organic face scrub from "lily of the desert" and when I came home I looked up how safe this is because I read that it contains aloe vera, well, and I read that I shouldn't be using products with aloe vera either!<br><br>
Can somebody give me some good tips what kind of face scrub I could use what is totally safe?<br><br>
My other concern is mouthwash, since I shouldn't use mouthwash with fluoride in it, I bought some mouthwash without it from "Tom's of Maine" but it has aloe vera in it too!<br><br>
Any tips for a safe mouthwash?<br><br>
I would very apreciate it if somebody could help me, have a nice evening and a nice pregnancy <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I, too, used to be concerned about salicylic acid, but then I read more and it is actually not a problem. Especially in a rinse-off product like a scrub.

I've also never heard to avoid fluoride mouthwash while pregnant. As long as you're not swallowing it, that is, but that's true any time.
