FAQs

WHAT ARE PARABENS?

Parabens are a group of related chemicals commonly used as preservatives in cosmetic products. Brands have used parabens since the 1950s to prevent the growth of bacteria and mold in their products. The most common parabens in beauty products are butylparaben, ethylparaben, methylparaben, and propylparaben. You can find parabens in hair products, moisturizers, shaving products, makeup, and sunscreen.

idea bulb

WHY SHOULD I AVOID PARABENS?

Parabens are major disruptors to your endocrine system and pose risks to your reproductive health; the chemicals have been known to mimic the activity of estrogen in the body. Estrogen, a female hormone responsible for the development of female reproductive organs and regulates menstruation, plays a significant role in many bodily functions. Manipulating estrogen levels can cause acne breakouts and may contribute to breast, endometrial, and uterine cancer, as well as fertility issues. That’s why it’s important to protect your health—and your skin using paraben-free sunscreen brands.

idea bulb

ARE THERE SKINCARE PRODUCTS WITHOUT PARABENS?

Yes! Colorescience is paraben-free sunscreen to prevent skin-damage. Our powder sunblock* brushes on easily so you can touch up throughout the day without the greasiness caused by other sunscreens. As one of the leading makeup brands for sensitive skin, we provide hypoallergenic sunblock* for all type of complexion, whether your skin tends to be dry, oily, or a combination of both. Whether you need primer for dry skin or a matte foundation to combat excess shine, all of our products offer SPF protection and are formulated using safe, healthy ingredients. With Colorescience, you get all the protective benefits of sunscreen without the irritating effects of parabens. 

idea bulb

ARE THERE OTHER INGREDIENTS I SHOULD AVOID IN ADDITION TO SUNSCREEN WITHOUT PARABENS?

There are other common chemicals in sunscreens you might avoid, including PABA and oxybenzone. PABA, or Para-AminoBenzoic Acid, is an antioxidant that can cause dizziness, diarrhea, fever, liver damage, nausea, rashes, and coma. If you experience these symptoms, seek medical help and use our PABA-free mineral sunblock* to prevent future allergic reactions.


Oxybenzone is a common chemical that’s used to absorb UV light. The EWG has rated it a highly-toxic ingredient that gets absorbed into the body through skin, and has been linked to hormone disruption and skin cancer. Colorescience offers oxybenzone-free sunscreen for full SPF coverage with none of harmful, chemical side effects.


Colorescience skincare products are paraben-free so you can achieve healthy, radiant skin. Our hypoallergenic non-scented sunscreen is designed for all skin types, and it’s the preferred sunblock* for acne prone skin. Keep your skin healthy and protected with paraben-free sunscreen from Colorescience.

*Sunblock is not a term approved by the FDA. Colorescience refers to our products as sun protection.
