FAQs

FAQ

What does it mean if sunscreen is vegan?

Vegan sunscreen means that the SPF product formula contains zero animal-based ingredients. If you didn’t think you had to worry about how your skin care and cosmetics might impact your vegan lifestyle, think again… We’re sorry to say that many big-name brands use many cheap fillers that are indeed derived from animals. Fear not—when you shop the Colorescience line of all natural sunscreen, you can trust that all of our SPF products are certified vegan sunscreen.

FAQ

Is all vegan sunscreen organic and eco-friendly?

Unfortunately not. Companies will spare no expense in the pursuit of profit—even the lives of animals. If you want to avoid placing animal-based ingredients on your body, watch out for these common culprits on the labels of all your beauty products:

  • Lanolin – Animal fat extracted from sheep’s wool

  • Beeswax – Sourced from honeycomb and often used as an emollient

  • Collagen – Protein found in animal tissue

  • Elastin  Protein found in the walls of animal arteries

  • Chitin  Exoskeletons of crustaceans used for color

Navigating vegan sun cream can be tricky, but consumers have the opportunity to protest animal cruelty with every informed purchase they make. It’s important to always read the ingredients on both food labels and cosmetic labels to uphold vegan values. When scanning for SPF protectors, keep in mind that non-toxic sunscreen should never contain chemicals such as oxybenzone that disrupt our bodily functioning when absorbed into the skin. These chemicals also harm wildlife when they make their way into our environment and oceans. By shopping Colorescience natural skin care, you can shop with confidence and spend less time reading labels.

FAQ

How Do I Get Full Coverage with Liquid Foundation?

If you want to combine both for fuller coverage, it's important to know whether you should use powder or liquid mineral makeup to start. Apply a thin layer of liquid foundation first (applying a thin layer is key so it doesn't compete with your powder). Then apply a light dusting of foundation powder for oily skin if your skin is prone to shine. You may want to dab the powder on to keep from smearing the liquid foundation. Choose our mineral foundation SPF 30—one of our most popular mineral liquid foundations—and mineral foundation primer to create a flawless unforgettable look. Apply a dab of mineral lip gloss to perfect your pout before you head out the door!
