About the Brand

Get the look: Black Dot Woven Maternity Dress & Ivory Cropped Peplum Maternity Jacket

The collection is the brainchild of Founder Parvathi Nair, a beauty industry insider, with years of experience working with brands like Olay, Vichy, Pantene, Wella, Burberry Beauty and more.

When she started planning for her own pregnancy, Parvathi quickly found that the selection of pregnancy-safe skincare options was limited, and lacked the touch of luxury she was looking for. She decided to bring together a team of top industry experts to create a range that’s safe for pregnant women, without compromising on that indulgent beauty experience.


About the Products

A post shared by @unitybeautyessentialsuk on

The Unity Beauty Essentials pregnancy collection is made entirely from natural ingredients, free from parabens, phthalates, sulphates, retinoids and other nasty chemicals. The range is totally pregnancy-safe, also cruelty-free (thoroughly tested, but never on animals) and vegan-friendly.

The key ingredient is the Indian Gooseberry – a super-fruit with potent levels of antioxidants and even more vitamin C than oranges! These fruits have long been used in traditional eastern beauty treatments, and recent clinical studies have validated their beneficial properties.


Duo Stretch Mark Cream & Oil

With one pump, the 2 stretch mark fighting forces work together to increase skin elasticity and fight collagen degradation. Massage your bump with this luxurious stretch mark cream and oil combo daily for the best results.

Coco’s Hairstyle: The Sleek Low Ponytail

Super model Coco Rocha is another mama who rocks a shorter hair style, but this slicked back look is a classic style that works for any length. To achieve this hair style, Coco parts her hair at the side and slicks it back into a low ponytail, using a touch of hair oil or serum to catch the flyaways. This sleek look is perfect for pairing with our classic little black maternity dress.


Long Hairstyles: Jessica Alba’s Beach Waves

Jessica Alba, currently expecting baby number three is well known for her relaxed boho style. We love her loose beachy waves, which are incredibly versatile. Dress them down for the daytime, or rock them after dark with an ultra-glamorous maternity dress.

For a glamorous occasion, who better to emulate than The Duchess of Cambridge. She rocked her signature Chelsea blow dry with our fuchsia knotted maternity dress in the first official pictures with Prince George, and then again while expecting Princess Charlotte. She looked particularly stunning on arriving in New York, dressed in Seraphine & blow-dried to perfection for her first official visit to the United States.

The messy bun is the ultimate shortcut style for mamas with long hair – it’s perfect for second-day styling or for relaxed weekends hanging out with your little ones.

Pro tip: To achieve the perfect messy bun, you have to start with a mess!

Pregnancy Glow: Beauty Tips for Radiant Skin, Glossy Hair and a Gleaming Smile

Glow like a goddess through your pregnancy with these simple hints and tips for radiant skin, glossy hair and gleaming white teeth! We’ve all heard of that radiant pregnancy glow that appears during your nine months… the one that will have friends and family commenting on how fantastic you look. So why not give your natural glow a little boost with these simple pregnancy-safe tips:


Radiant Skin

Shop our gorgeous designer changing bags today!

There are no shock revelations or secret shortcuts here (well maybe just one….). The best way to ensure radiant skin fit for a goddess, is to lead an equally saintly lifestyle. That means drinking plenty of water and eating good anti-oxidant rich foods like grapefruit, watermelon and broccoli to flush out toxins.

When it comes to your skincare routine, every goddess is different, so all we can really advise is that you find a regime that works for you and stick to it. You may find that your skin becomes more sensitive during pregnancy, so it’s probably best to steer clear of heavy duty products, opting for the gentler ones instead.


Quick Fix

If your pregnancy glow is in need of an instant radiance boost, try sucking on an ice cube! This will boost circulation to your face and provide an instantly plumper, rosier complexion. Works like a charm!


Glossy Hair

For glossy, goddess-worthy locks, it’s all about keeping things cool. It’s no secret that heat is damaging to your hair, so a quick cool rinse at the end of a shower, or finishing off your blow dry with the cool shot setting on your hair dryer could make the world of difference!


Top Tip

Did you know that different hair colours behave differently? Lighter hair is more porous, and will be more prone to build-up, so blondes are at their glossiest when their hair is freshly washed. Whereas those with darker hair are at their best with well-conditioned second-day hair! Learn how your hair behaves and you’ll be able to wash wisely for your next big party.


Gleaming Smile

Aside from the obvious (brush twice a day and don’t forget to floss), a great way of keeping your teeth pearly white is to eat plenty of crunchy fruit and veg like apples, celery, broccoli and carrots. Sounds like some crunchy crudités and hummus is in order!


Let Your Pregnancy Glow Sparkle & Shine

Of course once you’ve achieved your goddess-like pregnancy glow, there’s no better way to show it off than in some stunning new maternity clothes! Choose the styles that make you feel like the most shiny and fabulous version of yourself. Whether that means rocking a Grecian style maternity dress, strutting your stuff in the perfect pair of maternity jeans, or pulling out all the stops in a glamorous LUXE maternity evening gown!

Look after your pregnancy glow & have fun with fashion this season mamas!
