I wonder if anyone is able to tell me if I can safely use facial products containing salicylic acid - I wanted to use the Philosophy line of face care products, but saw that some of the cleansers have salicylic acid in them. The Clinique toner that I had used pre-preg also has it. Is this something that I need to avoid?

Any advice or words of wisdom would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Looks like it's fine:

Breast-feeding-Salicylic acid may be absorbed through the mother's skin. However, topical salicylic acid and sulfur combination has not been reported to cause problems in nursing babies.
