Pregnancy Safe Sunscreen

If you’re expecting a baby, you need high-quality sunscreen that protects you and your little one. Colorescience offers pregnancy-safe sunscreen made with natural ingredients that nourish and protect your skin while keeping your baby safe.



Why Is It Important to Protect My Skin While Pregnant?

If you’re expecting, it’s especially important to protect your skin from the sun’s UV rays with the best sunscreen for pregnancy. Hormones drastically increase while pregnant, and these hormones can dramatically change your skin. These hormones make the pigment-producing cells, called melanocytes, more sensitive to the sun. Your reaction to the sun can cause chloasma, a condition that produces dark brown patches on the skin. If you’re expecting, don’t step out of the house without some form of pregnancy safe sunscreen.


What Chemicals Should I Avoid in Sunscreen While Pregnant?

Not all sunscreens are created equal, and some contain chemicals that can harm you and your baby. Without pregnancy sunscreen, many chemicals can enter the bloodstream through the skin and interfere with the child’s development and cause skin irritation. If you’re expecting, avoid products that contain these ingredients

  • Camphor
  • Homosalate
  • Octocrylene
  • Oxybenzone
  • Para-aminobenzoic acid

Are There Safe Sunscreens I Can Use?

Yes! Powder sunblock contains natural minerals that protect the skin without causing irritation. Colorescience offers Powder sunscreen with SPF 50 to help protect delicate skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. The minerals contained in our pregnancy safe face sunscreen powder are non-comedogenic, so they provide protection without clogging your pores. You’ll find that all of our healthy mineral makeup is good for your skin and absent of harsh chemicals. You’ll find a number of mineral makeup kits catered to your complexion, including natural makeup for oily skin, so you can enhance your appearance from the inside out.


Does Colorescience Offer Sunscreen for My Children?

Colorescience offers sunscreen for children and sunblock for babies to keep sensitive skin safe. Your infant’s delicate skin is especially susceptible to sun damage, so it’s important to protect their skin using gentle skincare products. Our safe powder sunblock for babies will shield their delicate skin from the sun and minimize the risk of burns and irritation. After you apply your pregnancy safe sunscreen, protect the whole family and apply a layer of our safe kid’s sunscreen every two hours to prevent harmful burns, rashes, itching, and peeling.
