Yes, our original Body Shield has been renamed Body Shield Classic with a new and improved formula with improved ease of application and enhanced transfer resistance.
Apply Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 liberally and evenly 15 minutes before exposure to environmental aggressors. Like all SPF products, reapply at least every 2 hours.
It is not recommended to mix Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 as this causes the formula to be diluted. In addition, Body Shield SPF 50 has apple fruit extract, glycerin, and jojoba esters that make this ideal for daily moisturization so mixing with body lotion is unnecessary.
The neutral tint in Body Shield Classic is achieved using iron oxides, which are mineral pigments. These mineral pigments sit on top of skin rather than absorbing into the skin. Although the current formulation of Body Shield Classic offers improved transfer resistance from our original formula, it is not transfer-proof. To minimize color transfer, apply in thin layers, waiting 1-2 minutes to dry between layers. Take care when in contact with delicate or light-colored fabrics. Wash immediately with warm water and gentle detergent if color has transferred.
Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 is water/sweat resistant for 80 minutes but can be washed off with soap and water.
While Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 can be applied on the face, its texture and weightless finish was designed to be applied on the body. Try our Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Face Shield SPF 50 which has a hydrating, antioxidant-rich formula with specialty ingredients designed to be applied on face, neck and décolleté.

UVB exposure causes redness or burning, while UVA exposure causes skin darkening/pigmentation. Protection from both UVA and UVB means this product provides Broad Spectrum protection.
Total Protection™ Body Shields SPF 50 in Classic and Bronze provide Broad Spectrum SPF 50 (UVB protection) and PA++++ (UVA protection).
The PA rating system measures the level of protection from UVA rays, which are known to cause pigment darkening in the skin. It measures the amount of time a product would protect your skin from darkening.
The following shows how much protection each PA score provides compared to unprotected skin. If your unprotected skin normally darkens/pigments after 5 min of UVA exposure:
|PA Rating||Level of Protection||# of minutes protected before experiencing skin darkening/pigmentation|
|PA+||2-4 times||10-20 minutes|
|PA++||4-8 times||20-40 minutes|
|PA+++||8-16 times||40-80 minutes|
|PA++++||>16 times||>80 minutes|
Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 has a PA++++ rating.
EnviroScreen® Technology is proprietary to Colorescience®. EnviroScreen® Technology uses patented active ingredients, Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, that create a barrier preventing free radical formation and oxidative stress. These patented actives are combined with specialty ingredients that, together, work synergistically to protect skin from damage caused by exposure to UVA/UVB rays, pollution, blue light (also known as High Energy Visible, or HEV, light), and infrared radiation.
Colorescience® follows the FDA guidelines for testing water resistance or adherence to the skin after exposure to water. A panel of 10 people apply the product to their skin prior to being immersed in a whirlpool (of moving or circulating water) for 20-minute cycles. After 20 minutes in the whirlpool, panelists exit the whirlpool before immersing themselves again. For 40 minutes water resistance, panelists are immersed in the water for two 20-minute cycles. For 80 minutes water resistance, this is done a total of 4 times. After all cycles are completed, the SPF that is remaining on the skin is measured. If after 80 minutes in the whirlpool, the SPF remaining is at least 50, the result is an SPF 50 with 80 minutes of water resistance.
We measure our pollution protection by directly measuring free radicals created from UV + pollution events on unprotected skin and skin protected with Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Brush-on Shield SPF 50 and Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Face Shield SPF 50. We use a testing technique called electron spin resonance (ESR) that uses a combination of a magnetic field and electron magnetic waves to directly detect the unpaired electrons of free radicals.
Blue (HEV) light protection is tested by measuring the ability of the formula to block light in the HEV spectrum that would otherwise reach the skin. In practice, this is done by applying the formula to a transparent substrate at the same dose level (2mg/cm2) used in the FDA Monograph SPF test. The substrate is then placed at the entrance of an integrating sphere detector which captures all the light passing through the sample. This configuration is the same as that used in the FDA Monograph Critical Wavelength measurement and mimics the situation of a formula applied to the skin. The percentage of HEV light blocked is calculated by comparing the intensity of the light transmitted through the formula to the incident light at each wavelength throughout the HEV spectrum (400–490 nm).
Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Face Shield SPF 50 is safe to apply to 6 months and older. As with all sunscreen products, consult your physician for use on children under 6 months of age.
