IS MINERAL SUNSCREEN BETTER TO USE ON YOUR FACE?

The skin on your face is very delicate, so it’s important to use only the best products, including your sunscreen. Many sunscreen formulas contain chemical-based ingredients that can cause irritation, which may be especially problematic for individuals with sensitive skin and conditions like rosacea.

Just as concerning, the formulas tend to absorb into skin and often clog pores. For those who are prone to breakouts, this is a major red flag. However, mineral sunscreen is different in that it physically sits on skin, instead of absorbing through pores into the bloodstream. So, by wearing mineral sunscreen on your face, you still get protection you can trust, without worrying about breakouts, skin irritation, and exposure to harmful chemicals.

If you are going to buy a mineral sunscreen for your face, make sure you choose the right SPF for ample protection. The mineral SPF for your face should be 30 or greater, so you can effectively block out the sun’s rays to guard your skin against damage and premature aging.

Our sunscreen formulas use safe, mineral ingredients, including titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, that create a physical barrier between your skin and UV rays and harmful environmental factors. Our mineral formulas are designed to be non-comedogenic (meaning they won’t clog your pores) and lightweight—making it the perfect sunscreen for sensitive skin. Plus, there are a variety of application methods to choose from, including powder and sticks, so you can make sure you’re always protected, even on-the-go.

Our formula leaves no traces of white residue, so you can easily wear mineral sunscreen under your makeup and touch up throughout the day without worrying about messing up your foundation. Don’t forget to pair it with our primer with SPF for a flawless complexion with long-lasting wear.

WHICH IS BETTER, MINERAL OR CHEMICAL SUNSCREEN?

When it comes down to considering chemical vs. mineral sunscreen for your face, it goes beyond a matter of preference. Chemical formulas contain harsh ingredients that can absorb into skin and leave toxins in the bloodstream.

In fact, states and countries around the world, including Hawaii, are banning chemical sunscreen because of the harm it causes to coral reef ecosystems. Oxybenzone, a common ingredient found in chemical sunscreen formulas, washes off your skin and into the water, exposing coral to deadly toxins. And, even though oxybenzone is used in many sunscreen products, it can have harmful side effects for people as well. When it’s absorbed into the skin, this toxin can pass into your bloodstream and interfere with hormone regulation.

For that reason, mineral sunscreen is considered to be the safer option. At Colorescience, we specialize in chemical-free sunscreen that’s infused with 100% pure, natural antioxidants, minerals, and botanicals, for nourishing, yet strong protection that you can count on. We offer a variety of mineral-based sunscreen facial formulas:

Choosing the best mineral mineral sunscreen for your face from our selection comes down to how you like to use your sunscreen. If you like to go makeup free, our Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Brush-On Shield SPF 50 in your shade is the perfect way to give your skin a natural yet smooth-looking finish. It also makes for a great mineral sunscreen for your face under makeup for full protection. Or, if you prefer a classic liquid formula but not the idea of putting chemicals on your skin or dealing with white streaks, our Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Face Shield is a must-have for everyday wear.

HOW LONG DOES MINERAL SUNSCREEN PROTECTION LAST?

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, sunscreen should be reapplied every two hours, including mineral sunscreen for your face. However, if you are sweating substantially or submerged in water (swimming, water sports, etc.), sunscreen won’t stay as long on your skin, so you should reapply about every 40 minutes.

Not only do our mineral-based sunscreens offer facial protection from UVA and UVB rays, but thanks to our EnviroScreen® Technology, you’ll also be shielded from pollutants, blue (HEV) light, and infrared radiation for up to 90 minutes. In addition to protecting your face in the moment by diligently applying our mineral-based sunscreen on your face, you’ll get to enjoy the short-term and long-term benefits—from avoiding sunburns and their resulting damage, to a healthier, more youthful complexion as you age.

Mineral sunscreens also offer another advantage—while chemical sunscreens need time to absorb into your skin to offer adequate protection (typically about 30 minutes before sun exposure), physical sunscreens like ours start working as soon as they’re applied. When using our mineral sunscreen, just make sure to apply (and reapply) your product of choice liberally over exposed areas and you’ll be ready to take on the day. In addition to our mineral-based face sunscreen, we also have other mineral sunscreen products like Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 and Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Color Balm SPF 50, so you’re covered from head to toe.

If you’re looking for the best mineral sunscreen for your face, look no further. We’ve formulated a safe, sensitive-skin friendly (and environmentally friendly) sunscreen that’s available in several easy-to-use options, so you can find the right product for your lifestyle. Whether you’re heading out running errands, commuting to work, or soaking up the sun on a beautiful summer’s day, don’t leave home without mineral face sunscreen by Colorescience.
