Benefits

Directions

1. Shake well before each use! Separation may occur and is natural. 2. Be sure to apply enough for maximum protection. A general rule of thumb is to use 1 ounce, or a shot glass-sized amount of sunscreen, per application over the entire body. 3. For best results, skin should be fully dry before applying and reapplying.

FAQ's

What is the difference between UVA and UVB damage?

UVB exposure causes redness or burning, while UVA exposure causes skin darkening/pigmentation. Protection from both UVA and UVB means this product provides Broad Spectrum protection. Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 provides Broad Spectrum SPF 50 (UVB protection) and PA+++ (UVA protection).

What does the PA rating mean?

The PA rating system measures the level of protection from UVA rays, which are known to cause pigment darkening in the skin. It measures the amount of time a product would protect your skin from darkening.

What is EnviroScreen™ Technology?

EnviroScreen™ Technology is proprietary to Colorescience®. EnviroScreen™ Technology uses patented active ingredients, Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, that create a barrier preventing free radical formation and oxidative stress. These patented actives are combined with specialty ingredients that, together, work synergistically to protect skin from damage caused by exposure to UVA/UVB rays, pollution, blue light (also known as High Energy Visible, or HEV, light), and infrared radiation.

Can you explain how adherence/water- and sweat- resistance is tested?

Colorescience® follows the FDA guidelines for testing water resistance or adherence to the skin after exposure to water. A panel of 10 people apply the product to their skin prior to being immersed in a whirlpool (of moving or circulating water) for 20-minute cycles. After 20 minutes in the whirlpool, panelists exit the whirlpool before immersing themselves again. For 40 minutes water resistance, panelists are immersed in the water for two 20-minute cycles. For 80 minutes water resistance, this is done a total of 4 times. After all cycles are completed, the SPF that is remaining on the skin is measured. If after 80 minutes in the whirlpool, the SPF remaining is at least 50, the result is an SPF 50 with 80 minutes of water resistance.

How do you measure pollution protection?

We measure our pollution protection by directly measuring free radicals created from UV + pollution events on unprotected skin and skin protected with Sunforgettable® Total Protection™Body Shield SPF 50. We use a testing technique called electron spin resonance (ESR) that uses a combination of a magnetic field and electron magnetic waves to directly detect the unpaired electrons of free radicals.

How do you measure blue (HEV) light protection?

Blue (HEV) light protection is tested by measuring the ability of the formula to block light in the HEV spectrum that would otherwise reach the skin. In practice, this is done by applying the formula to a transparent substrate at the same dose level (2mg/cm2) used in the FDA Monograph SPF test. The substrate is then placed at the entrance of an integrating sphere detector which captures all the light passing through the sample. This configuration is the same as that used in the FDA Monograph Critical Wavelength measurement and mimics the situation of a formula applied to the skin. The percentage of HEV light blocked is calculated by comparing the intensity of the light transmitted through the formula to the incident light at each wavelength throughout the HEV spectrum (400–490 nm).

Is Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 non-comedogenic?

Yes, Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 is non-comedogenic.

Is Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 hypoallergenic?

Yes, Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 is hypoallergenic and dermatologist-recommended.

Is Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 gluten free?

Yes, Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 is gluten free. People who have gluten allergies may experience sensitivity when using topical products. Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 is gluten free, and therefore, safe for those with Celiac disease. In addition, all Colorescience®products are 100% free from parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrance, animal testing, talc, dyes, mineral oils, drying alcohols & chemicals.
