FAQs

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HAVE A SUNSCREEN ALLERGY?

You probably understand the risks and consequences related to sunburns and sun damage, but those with sunscreen allergies find it much more difficult to combat the sun’s rays and enjoy their time outdoors. That’s because most brand-name sunscreens are “chemical”, which means they work by absorbing UV rays and converting them to heat. These strong chemical ingredients can cause allergic reactions in certain skin types. If your sensitive skin is prone to allergic reactions, you need allergy free sunscreen in the form of safe mineral powder. Mineral sunscreen for allergic skin rests on the outer layer of epidermis—rather than absorbed internally—to refract UV rays, so you can safely protect your complexion without all those harsh chemicals.

WHAT DOES A SUNSCREEN ALLERGY LOOK LIKE?

CA sunscreen allergy may appear in one of two ways: contact allergy or contact photoallergy. If you have a contact allergy, the allergic reaction will occur anywhere the sunscreen is applied. If you have a contact photoallergy, the allergic reaction will only occur in areas where the sunscreen was applied once exposed to sunshine. Common signs of a sunscreen allergy include swelling, itching, burning, and redness. Both of these reactions occur due to irritating ingredients, fragrances, parabens, and/or PABA. Colorescience offers biodegradable sunscreen that’s as safe for your skin as it is for the environment. Because if you wouldn’t want those chemicals in a landfill, you probably don’t want them absorbed into your skin, right?
