As we all know, harmful UV rays can accelerate signs of aging and increase the risk of developing skin cancer. But what about the air pollution we encounter on a daily basis?

What's the Difference Between Physical and Chemical Sunscreen?
Physical sunscreens, also known as physical blockers, contain natural active minerals that deflect the sun’s UV rays away from skin. Chemical sunscreens, or chemical absorbers, contain chemicals like oxybenzone, octionoxate, octisalate, and avobenzone. These chemicals absorb UV rays and convert them into heat, finally releasing the heat from the skin.
Physical Sunscreen Ingredients
Both zinc oxide and titanium dioxide can be used in physical sunscreen ingredients. Zinc oxide mineral sunscreen is the only sunscreen recommended by the FDA for babies, and titanium dioxide mineral sunscreen protects your complexion while giving it a smooth finish. Our powder physical sunscreen for face contains active minerals to deflect UV rays.
Which Is Better for My Skin?
If you have sensitive skin, chemical sunscreen may cause irritation. The ingredients in these sunscreens can result in discoloration, itching, burning, blistering, and hormone disruption. Chemical sunscreen lotions can also clog pores and cause acne—especially if you have an already sensitive complexion. In contrast, physical sunscreens, like mineral-based sunblock powder, contain organic ingredients that don’t harm or irritate skin. Oil-free powder sunscreens are also non-comedogenic, meaning they don’t clog pores. Whether or not you have sensitive skin, there’s no denying that sun protection is an important part of daily skincare. Our non-comedogenic physical sunscreen is a convenient way to incorporate SPF into your makeup routine, without the irritation or greasiness of conventional sunscreens.

Sunforgettable SPF 50 Keeps Me Protected!I love this product! I was introduced to the SPF 30 awhile ago by a friend and just discovered the new SPF 50! What a fantastic product! It's so easy to use and my little ones love it too! they're always asking for me to apply the sunscreen from the blue tube. Thanks Colorescience, for making sun protection fun and easy for the whole family!
Great product!I was introduced to this about a year ago and I am so happy with this product! I tell all my friends and family about how convenient it is to have and how easy it is to use. I especially love it for the kids and for me because I'm always on the go! Thank goodness for Sunforgettable!
The only sunscreen that didn't make me breakoutThis is the best sunscreen ever! I have oily skin and have tried every sunscreen out there (cheap and pricey ones) but did not work well because they all made me breakout until I found Sunforgettable! This is the only sunscreen that works for my skin! I love it!!!
Great MultipackLove the multipacks...just wish they were available in a color other than medium. Please add "tan" and I am sold! This is a great product and I love that it has the SPF that we all need!
