Why we review products

Did you know that there are chemicals commonly found in many personal care products that may disrupt your hormones and put your fertility at risk? The lack of regulation by the FDA on skincare and cosmetics inspired our team to start speaking out and educating women on how to shop safer.

"Healthy is beautiful; and beauty should never come at the risk of our health."

What makes us the best is that our standards are higher than the rest. More importantly, decision fatigue is a real thing and we’re here to make your life easier by finding, testing, and comparing only the best beauty products for you. This is a shout out to all the moms to more than one, the new moms, and the women who strive to be great moms in the future.

All of the products we review must be:

Safe for pregnant and nursing women
Safe for sensitive skin types
Never tested on animals

The products we compare must meet these 3 requirements and be free of these potentially toxic ingredients that unfortunately, are too common in personal care products:
Animal Oils/Musks/Fats, Alumina, Avobenzone, Benzyl salicylate, Carbon Black, Formaldehydes & releasing agents, Fragrance ingredients (acrylates: (ethyl acrylate, ethyl methacrylate, methyl methacrylate, butyl methacrylate, hydroxypropyl methacrylate, tetrahydrofurfuryl methacrylate, trimethylolpropane trimethacrylate , aluminum salts), Homosalate, Hydroquinone, Lead/Lead Acetate, Mercury, Mineral oil & petrolatum based ingredients, Octinoxate, Octisalate, Octocrylene, Oxybenzone, Parabens of all forms, Phthalates, Polyethylene, Paraffin, Retinyl palmitate, Retinols, Salicylic acid, Sulfates, Talc, Titanium dioxide, Triclosan, Triclocarban

Why you can trust us

In the last decade alone, the skincare industry has grown so much. Countless new brands are popping up every week and tirelessly flooding into our social media. Moreover, these brands are finding new ways to advertise to our insecurities… And we’re not trying to be more of that in your life.
That’s why all of our blog posts are never sponsored. Although we provide a direct link to certain products that we mention to get our point across, these products meet our standards and have been personally tested for gentleness and effectiveness. For your convenience, we find where you can buy the genuine product for the lowest price online and provide that specific link in the article. Currently, Facing Fertility is not formally an affiliate of any retailer. In the future, we may receive commissions on purchases made from select links.
