Is Lytera® 2.0 safe for use with pregnant or breast-feeding patients?
The safety of our products has not been established in vulnerable populations, including women who are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding. Standard cosmetic safety testing is conducted with our products in healthy adult human volunteers that are not pregnant. Lytera® 2.0 does not contain any known teratogenic ingredients, ingredients known to harm mother and/or baby. Therefore, pregnancy is not considered a contraindication for Lytera® 2.0.
