What Are Parabens?
Parabens are a group of related chemicals commonly used as preservatives in cosmetic products. Brands have used parabens since the 1950s to prevent the growth of bacteria and mold in their products. The most common parabens in beauty products are butylparaben, ethylparaben, methylparaben, and propylparaben. You can find parabens in hair products, moisturizers, shaving products, makeup, and sunscreen.
Why Should I Avoid Parabens?
Parabens are major disruptors to your endocrine system and pose risks to your reproductive health; the chemicals have been known to mimic the activity of estrogen in the body. Estrogen, a female hormone responsible for the development of female reproductive organs and regulates menstruation, plays a significant role in many bodily functions. Manipulating estrogen levels can cause acne breakouts and may contribute to breast, endometrial, and uterine cancer, as well as fertility issues. That’s why it’s important to protect your health—and your skin using paraben-free sunscreen brands.
Are There Skincare Products Without Parabens?
Yes! Colorescience is paraben-free sunscreen to prevent skin-damage. Our powder sunblock brushes on easily so you can touch up throughout the day without the greasiness caused by other sunscreens. As one of the leading makeup brands for sensitive skin, we provide hypoallergenic sunblock for all type of complexion, whether your skin tends to be dry, oily, or a combination of both. Whether you need primer for dry skin or a matte foundation to combat excess shine, all of our products offer SPF protection and are formulated using safe, healthy ingredients. With Colorescience, you get all the protective benefits of sunscreen without the irritating effects of parabens.
Are There Other Ingredients I Should Avoid in Addition to Sunscreen Without Parabens?
There are other common chemicals in sunscreens you might avoid, including PABA and oxybenzone. PABA, or Para-AminoBenzoic Acid, is an antioxidant that can cause dizziness, diarrhea, fever, liver damage, nausea, rashes, and coma. If you experience these symptoms, seek medical help and use our PABA-free mineral sunblock to prevent future allergic reactions.
Oxybenzone is a common chemical that’s used to absorb UV light. The EWG has rated it a highly-toxic ingredient that gets absorbed into the body through skin, and has been linked to hormone disruption and skin cancer. Colorescience offers oxybenzone-free sunscreen for full SPF coverage with none of harmful, chemical side effects.
Colorescience skincare products are paraben-free so you can achieve healthy, radiant skin. Our hypoallergenic non-scented sunscreen is designed for all skin types, and it’s the preferred sunblock for acne prone skin. Keep your skin healthy and protected with paraben-free sunscreen from Colorescience.
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!
Sunforgettable is essentialThe smooth sunforgettable primer is a perfect base for the mineral sunscreen. My skin has improved from using these products.
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!
The Face Shield Is PerfectionI purchased this set and am loving the liquid faceshield. It makes my face look so healthy and naturally perfected. I own many high end “tinted” mineral sunscreens in the same price range and a few even in a higher range, but by far, I find the Colorscience to be the best suited for my needs.
While I am also loving the look of the brush-on powder sunscreen on my skin, I am finding it difficult to get the powder to come out. It spits out a small amount of puff in the air, and then it stops delivering. I took it with me on vacation to Kauai, but plan on contacting customer service when I return. I also apply it by closing my eyes and then pat/press it into my skin because I find that it stings and irritates my eyes. To be fair, I have very sensitive eyes. I have absolutely no issues applying the liquid near and around my eyes.
All in all, I’d definitely repurchase the Facehield liquid again and again. While I appreciate the convenience of reapplication of the brush-on powder, the eye stinging might be of further issue. I own several items from this line and look forward to trying other products out.
Awesome Body Sunscreensuch a great body sunblock. I recommend to use when in any outdoor situation where you have direct sun or reflective light on your skin. I feel protected when I were this!!
