Hi Kirstin. We love Gycolic and Salicylic acids as an alternative to Retin A, even if you are pregnant. The exfoliating benefits are similar if a little less agressive with the Gly/Sal combination. We have anything from a 2%/2% Gly/Sal wash up to a 20% Glycolic cream. Hope this helps.
Good alternatives to tretinoin while trying to conceive, pregnant or nursing would be topical stabilized Vitamin C, glycol acid, coffee berry extract, and peptides. Best to speak with your dermatologist about the best skincare routine for your skin type. ~ Dr. Benjamin Barankin, Toronto Dermatology Centre.
