FAQs

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 Face Shield SPF 50 provides 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 Face Shield Bronze 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 Face Shield Bronze 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).

Apply Sunforgettable® Total Protection Face Shield Bronze SPF 50 15 minutes before exposure to environmental aggressors. Like all SPF products, reapply every 2 hours. For convenient all-day reapplication on-the-go or directly over makeup, use the Total Protection Brush-on Shield SPF 50.

If applied once daily as recommended, Sunforgettable® Total Protection Face Shield Bronze SPF 50 will last approximately 90 days.

I love adding this to my regular sunscreen to create a natural finish foundation. I have oily skin and this doesn't make me greasy, dries to a beautiful satin finish that lasts. I just use the mineral powder to touch up throughout the day and I'm good! Please don't ever discontinue or change the formula. This stuff is perfection!!!

This lotion goes on smoothly and evenly. It gives a touch of sun on pale skin without the danger of an actual tan. AND the best is the 50 SPF protection. Thank you to Dr Dray for the recommendation.

Review by Mariel on 6 May 2020 review stating Best sunscreen formula!
I love this sunscreen! I have golden tan-deep skin and thought this would be a better bet than the original shade. It is too dark but I love the way this feels on my skin so much that I bought the original too. I use the original too to even it out more. Please make a shade in between original and bronze!

Bronzer is a fooler!!
Review by Monica M. on 6 May 2020 review stating Bronzer is a fooler!!
The first time I tested the bronzer out on my wrist I thought, "This is not dark enough". I was wrong, LOL! It's pretty dark and a nice bronze. I mixed it with my regular Sunforgettable and it darkened it to just a slightly bit darker than my skin tone, the full strength is like a darker golden tan. It may not work for the darker skin tones. I like the versatility of having the regular and the Bronze and being able to customize it to my needs. I didn't think I need it...but glad I got it!!
