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 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™ 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™ Body 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).

This is a must buyThis product gives really good protection against the sun rays. I feel confident that it will protect my skin from harmful UV rays.
Great ProductI love this product! It goes on smoothly and feels good!
Good sunscreenThis is a great sunscreen it just needs a lot of rubbing in or else your clothes can become soiled.
Stains everythingDestroyed my brand new bathing suit, on its first wear.
Awesome Body Sunscreensuch a great body sunblock. I recommend to use when in any outdoor situation where you have direct sun or reflective light on your skin. I feel protected when I were this!!
AmazingWorks great! Subtle scented, great protection and doesn’t clog pores!
Soft and CreamyI love the texture of this product and how it’s made with good ingredients. I feel it’s very effective. I don’t love that it tends to gather in my fine lines. However, all I need to do is rub it in again and it disappears. If you don’t mind sorta monitoring that, then it’s a perfect product. Remember to shake well each time!
Won't buy it againI love products by Colorescience, but this product was not a favorite. It provided me with great coverage but I just wasn't crazy about the texture or smell.
My mom loves thisMy mom got one for me and her, and it has great protection! It lasts all day but also feels light and not greasy or cakey. It is amazing and you can take it with you on the go!
NiceLove this product...
Fab sun protectionReally prevents burning or tanning. The ultimate coverage.
Excellent sunscreenWorks great. Be sure to rub it in well.
Amazing productI Love it!
This is fantastic!I really love this product. I find it easy to apply and I love the moisturizing texture. I have dry skin so it is very good for me. I do find that I have to rub a little more on my neck as there is a little white that shows in the neck lines. I am sure to shake it as the directions on the tube say.
Great coverageLove it
Best mineral sunscreen out thereI have been hunting for a mineral sunscreen that rubs in well for years and I didn’t think one existed, until I tried this product. It has a creamy, satin like texture and it feels like heaven. It also has a light fresh scent which I enjoy. It feels like pure luxury.
The BEST sunscreen!!!I absolutely love this sunscreen! I used Elta MD in the past, but this is so much better for me. The reasons I love it: it is only a physical sunscreen, not chemical; it uses 12% Zinc Oxide; it’s water/sweat resistant for 80 mins.; it’s got a beautiful tint that dries to a luminous clear so it’s not white & pasty looking; it goes on with a silky feel to it, not thick/sticky or runny and it dries to soft, powdery feel. It’s everything you could want in a sunscreen! I use it everyday on my forearms where I have some Melasma, back of my hands, & chest/neck area. Thank you, Colorescience, for creating this incredible sunscreen for us!
I like this productI received it for free with a promotion at the time. I like it, but it is expensive.
Sunforgettable Total Protection Body Shield SPF 50Love the ingredients, but the smell of the product is a bit harsh and it goes on pretty white but does disappear once absorbed into the skin. Overall it’s a good product if I get over the smell, so I mix with a tiny bit of essential oils to help.
Wanted to love this, but...The ingredient list is absolutely wonderful and better than any body sunscreen out in the market right now, as this protects you from everything! It did not irritate nor clog pores in my very sensitive skin, which is a bonus. I also noticed that after application, my skin did not retain heat nor did it tan when I went out in the sun, which is exactly what I wanted.
However... The consistency of this sunscreen is very thick, dry, pasty, which makes it difficult to apply spread evenly. You will definitely never apply more than needed. I was hoping for a more milky formula like every other sunscreen. It also leaves a white/chalky film on my Italian olive/tan skin... Which makes me look ashy, a problem I’ve never had before. Overall, an amazing sunscreen if you’re fair to light medium.
A sunscreen I can wearI despise sunscreen smell which means I rarely ever wore it, until this one. There is a scent but it fades away and doesn’t bother me, which says a lot because I am extremely scent sensitive.
Love thisOK so I actually LOVE this stuff. Its really lightweight and has no smell to me. Very moisturizing, I will continue to use this. I bought because of a sale and found a product I love!
Amazing coverage!I WISH this was in a larger size!!! The feel is silky and the coverage is amazing!!! We live at the beach and reapply as needed but this suncreen gets a workout and still protects after numerous slashes. My daughter has sensitive skin and she is able to wear this with no issues!!!
Great productHubby and I used this when doing outdoor work, it worked great! Then took it on a family beach and boating vacation. Reapplying as directed every 2 hours, we were the only two of twelve who did not get a sunburn.
GoodA little different then what I have used in the past but good product.
Horrible Smell and ChalkyI was so excited to buy this, as most of Colorscience's products are fabulous. However, I will be returning this item, as it has a rancid smell, and it created a white, chalky finish on my fair skin. I will buy more brush-on sunscreen after I return it.
Updated formulaProtects your skin from many things other brands do not. Buy it!
