What Is Oxybenzone?
Oxybenzone is a toxic chemical found in most commercial sunscreens. It forms readily soluble, colorless crystals with the primary function of absorbing UV light. However, oxybenzone is also absorbed by the skin and thereby enters the bloodstream where it stays for an unknown amount of time. Studies have found oxybenzone in blood, urine, and breast milk samples, and have linked the chemical with endocrine-disruption and hormonal problems. Chemical sunscreens may also contain potentially dangerous, toxic filters such as octinoxate, octisalate, and homosalate. Avoid the risk altogether by shopping sunscreen without oxybenzone and octinoxate—nor any of its chemical counterparts—and choose Colorescience titanium dioxide sunscreen instead.
What Is Physical Sunscreen?
Whereas chemical sunscreens absorb into the skin, mineral sunscreen without oxybenzone sits on the skin’s surface to physically diffract harmful UV rays. Our formula uses zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to filter UV light instead of relying on the use of toxic chemicals to convert heat. Applying sunscreen with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide is easy with Colorescience’s self-dispensing brush; all you need to do is sweep the applicator in small, circular motions to release the powder 30 minutes before sun exposure for broad-spectrum protection.
Is Colorescience Sunscreen Safe?
Absolutely. We offer safe mineral makeup and oxybenzone-free sunscreen that will never include harsh chemicals or dyes known to trigger skin irritation. Our powder sunscreen for sensitive skin uses gentle ingredients and promises safe protection against the sun. Use Colorescience sunscreen with zinc oxide for a natural UV defense that’s free of harmful ingredients and shop our entire line of cosmetics, crafted with skincare in mind. We cater to every unique skin type—from dry to oily and sensitive complexions—formulated to your skin’s unique needs. From the Colorescience Finishing Touch Protocol to pigmentation correction, you’re sure to find the right skincare solution for your beauty routine. Shop with confidence knowing your purchase comes with a money-back guarantee—and add a free sample to your sunscreen without oxybenzone to explore more products you’re sure to love!
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!
Sun protection that feels greatI LOVE this sunscreen. It is so different from anything else I've tried in that it doesn't leave my face feeling greasy, works well with my other makeup and it still protects me from the sun all year round!
Best face sunscreen money can buy.I will always use this, it lasts forever too.
Multi-pack is so worth it!!The multi-pack SPF 50 is incredible. It covers, protects and has anti-aging ingredients in the formula that help tighten, firm and give color to the skin.
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!!
