We’re Colorescience, and we know healthy skin.
From sunlight, to pollution, to free radicals, we believe in going way beyond UV. We’re obsessively overprotective about preventing skin damage. And that’s exactly why physicians love us.

We know skincare innovation.
We believe skincare battles are best won before they are fought. Because investing in scientific innovation now, means we won’t have to pay the price for free radicals later.

We know sun protection.
When it comes to sunscreen, we believe it should be a purely physical relationship—not a chemical one. Because the best defense is a mineral suncare offense.

Colorescience.
Know Better Skin.

FAQS
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™ Color Balms SPF 50 in Pink Sky, Violet Haze, and Golden Hour provide 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.

The following shows how much protection each PA score provides compared to unprotected skin. If your unprotected skin normally darkens/pigments after 5 min of UVA exposure:

  • PA Rating | Level of Protection | Total # of min before experiencing skin darkening/pigmentation
  • PA+ 2-4 times 10-20 minutes
  • PA++ 4-8 times 20-40 minutes
  • PA+++ 8-16 times 40-80 minutes
  • PA++++ >16 times >80 minutes

Total Protection™ Face Shield SPF 50 has a PA++++ rating.

Total Protection™ Brush-On Shield SPF 50 has a PA++++ rating, the highest level of protection from UVA exposure.

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™ Brush-on Shield SPF 50 and Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Face 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).
Can I use Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ products on babies?
Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Face Shield SPF 50 is safe to apply to 6 months and older. As with all sunscreen products, consult your physician for use on children under 6 months of age.

How long does color last? / Are these smudgeproof? Are they water or sweat resistant?
Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Color Balms SPF 50 are water/sweat resistant for 40 minutes. As Color Balms SPF 50 are not stains or longwear, matte finish formulas, they are not smudge proof. How long color lasts will vary based on activity, just as with many other lip products with a similar emollient finish.
Can I leave this in my car?
Color Balms SPF 50 should not be stored in a vehicle as the temperature inside a car can become excessively high. Avoid frequent or long-term direct exposure to sun and heat. Store at room temperature. When outdoors, such as the beach or pool, try to avoid leaving out in direct sunlight by keeping in a bag or in the shade.
Does it stain clothing?

Yes, Color Balms SPF 50 offer not only high SPF all-mineral sun protection, but also includes ingredients such as jojoba esters and plant-based squalane to increase moisturization and aid in skin barrier function, as well as Bisabolol to soothe skin. Use Color Balms as your new everyday lip balm with a touch of color, and Total Protection™ from environmental aggressors.
Does this replace Lip Shine?
No, Color Balms are a lip and cheek option for everyday balm with sun protection without the gloss. Choose from blush, berry, and bronze. Lip Shine SPF 35 is the ideal lip gloss with sun protection.
