Oil Free Sunscreen

Tired of the slick, sticky feeling of sunscreen lotion? Choose Colorescience oil-free sunscreen to protect your skin with none of the grease. Our sunscreen powder will give you lasting coverage, resulting in a silky-smooth complexion.



Why Are Some Sunscreens Oily

Many waterproof, sweat-proof, and sport sunscreens contain silicone and acrylate polymers that make them water-resistant, but they’re also responsible for the gummy and greasy feeling on your skin. These polymers feel tacky, but their physical side effects can be worse—for some people, exposure can cause rashes, hives, scaling, and peeling. If you have oily skin, it’s best to shop gentle, paraben-free sunscreen brands that won’t trigger breakouts or leave you feeling slimy and shiny. Colorescience has you covered with exactly what your complexion needs.


Does Colorescience Sell Non-Oily Sunscreen

It can be especially difficult to find the right SPF protection if your oily skin is prone to breakouts and flare-ups. It’s important to protect your skin from the sun, but without oil-free sunscreen, greasy lotions can clog pores and increase shine. Colorescience offers oil-free SPF for acne-prone skin so you can keep your complexion clean and clear—our formula sits on top of skin and doesn’t seep into pores, unlike the chemicals found in big-box ingredient labels. We make PABA-free, powder sunscreen for oily skin using only natural ingredients like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to create a matte finish while shielding your skin from UV rays


How Do I Apply Oil-free Sunscreen Without Ruining My Makeup?

Oily sunscreens create a film to repel sweat, but this also causes makeup to run and melt. In order to keep makeup in place, it’s important to pick a sunscreen that protects your skin without leaving an oily residue. Our formula comes lightly tinted in your matching shade, so you never need to worry about looking white or chalky applying SPF on your way out the door. Layer our matte powder sunscreen over your primer for oily skin to deflect UV rays while reducing excess sheen. Pair your oil-free SPF with our nourishing foundation to even skin tone, minimize shine, smooth pores, and achieve a flawless complexion. Our loose mineral powder caters to oily, dry, sensitive, and combination skin types. We offer sunscreen without oxybenzone and other harmful chemicals so you get the protection you need without harmful side effects.
