How to use

  1. 1

    Open

    Remove brush cap, pull back the sleeve, and remove and discard the rubber band.

  2. 2

    Activate

    With the sleeve pulled back, hold the brush with bristles facing down and shake vertically several times. Then sweep the brush in small circular motions using moderate pressure on the back of your hand. Repeat as needed until powder flows consistently. Repeat activation before and during each use to maintain consistent powder flow and ensure even application.

  3. 3

    Apply

    Using circular motions, sweep directly onto bare skin or over makeup. Apply generously across your face, ears and neck. Two complete passes over the face are recommended to ensure full coverage. If applying directly over a moisturizer, primer or liquid foundation, ensure products have fully set before applying Sunforgettable®. Reapply at least every two hours for continued protection.

Do You Reapply
Every Two Hours?

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, all sunscreens should be reapplied every two hours. Sunforgettable® Total Protection Brush-On Shield SPF 50 is the only 100% non-chemical brush-on shield that can be applied on-the-go and over makeup all throughout the day.

1. OPEN: Remove brush cap, pull back the sleeve, and remove and discard the rubber band. Put cap back on.

2. ACTIVATE: With the cap still on, hold the brush with cap facing down and tap with moderate pressure on a hard surface 6-8 times. Then remove cap, run your finger through the bristles and sweep the brush in small circular motions using moderate pressure on the back of your hand. Repeat as needed until powder flows consistently. After initial activation, tap the brush cap down into palm before each use to ensure consistent powder flow and even application.

3. APPLY: Using circular motions, sweep directly onto bare skin or over makeup. Apply generously across your face, ears and neck. Two complete passes over the face are recommended to ensure full coverage. If applying directly over a moisturizer, primer or liquid foundation, ensure products have fully set before applying Sunforgettable®. Reapply at least every two hours for continued protection.

FAQS

While both formulations provide SPF protection from UVA/UVB, the Total Protection Brush-On Shield SPF 50 was reformulated with proprietary EnviroScreen™ Technology to go beyond SPF protection.

  • This new formulation also provides protection from other environmental aggressors that we are exposed to everyday, including:
    • Pollution
    • Blue light (also called High Energy Visible, or HEV, light)
    • Infrared radiation
  • In addition, this formulation includes hyaluronic acid (HA) powder for a moisturizing benefit and is water/sweat resistant up to 80 minutes. The new brush has antimicrobial bristles that protect and keep the brush fresh.

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 Brush-On Shield SPF 50 has a PA++++ rating, the highest level of protection from UVA exposure.

The Total Protection Brush-On Shield SPF 50 was reformulated with new, proprietary EnviroScreen™ Technology. This technology uses patented zinc oxide and titanium dioxide that make them more efficient as sunscreen actives than standard zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.

This formulation contains 22.5% Zinc oxide and 22.5% titanium dioxide, for a total of 45% of active ingredients. This is the highest percent of actives among leading brush-on sunscreens on the market.

Finally, Colorescience Sunforgettable™ brushes are the only powder sunscreen brushes recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation. Total Protection Brush-On Shield SPF 50 has earned the Skin Cancer Foundation Active use seal.

Our brush is coated with a proprietary wash comprised of surfactants and a well-known non-toxic, and paraben-free preservative that has been shown to inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungus to keep the brush fresh.

Yes, Colorescience® brush cleaner is the most effective and gentle way to clean the antimicrobialtreated brush and maintain its freshness.

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.

Your eyes are not playing tricks on you; the new formulation does look lighter in the brush component in comparison to the existing brush in Medium, Tan and Deep. However, when you apply on skin you will see that there is no visible difference in how the color wears on the skin.

This is a result of our new technology in which our zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are encapsulated, and how they interact with the iron oxides and our skin. While slightly lighter looking in the brush component, when applied to skin the colors wear the same.

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™ Brushon Shield SPF 50. We use a testing technique called electron spin resonance (ESR) that uses a combination of a magnetic field and electronmagnetic waves to directly detect the unpaired electrons of free radicals.

When activating for the first time, it may take 3 to 5 minutes of sweeping the brush in small circular motions on the back of your hand before you begin to see powder flow freely through the brush head. Once activated, your brush will always be ready to use.

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).
