FAQS

1. My tube doesn’t say Classic on it? Is this ok?

Yes, our original Body Shield has been renamed Body Shield Classic with a new and improved formula with improved ease of application and enhanced transfer resistance.

2. How often should I apply?

Apply Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 liberally and evenly 15 minutes before exposure to environmental aggressors. Like all SPF products, reapply at least every 2 hours.

3. Can I mix this with body lotion?

It is not recommended to mix Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 as this causes the formula to be diluted. In addition, Body Shield SPF 50 has apple fruit extract, glycerin, and jojoba esters that make this ideal for daily moisturization so mixing with body lotion is unnecessary.

4. Will this rub off on clothes?

The neutral tint in Body Shield Classic is achieved using iron oxides, which are mineral pigments. These mineral pigments sit on top of skin rather than absorbing into the skin. Although the current formulation of Body Shield Classic offers improved transfer resistance from our original formula, it is not transfer-proof. To minimize color transfer, apply in thin layers, waiting 1-2 minutes to dry between layers. Take care when in contact with delicate or light-colored fabrics. Wash immediately with warm water and gentle detergent if color has transferred.

5. How do I wash the product off my skin?

Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 is water/sweat resistant for 80 minutes but can be washed off with soap and water.

6. Can this be applied on face?

While Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 can be applied on the face, its texture and weightless finish was designed to be applied on the body. Try our Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Face Shield SPF 50 which has a hydrating, antioxidant-rich formula with specialty ingredients designed to be applied on face, neck and décolleté.

7. Is this product safe for sensitive skin?

Yes. Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 is 100% mineral protection that is free of chemical active ingredients, oil free, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and is suitable for all skin types.

8. Do I need to moisturize before applying?

No. Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 was formulated with apple fruit extract, glycerin, and jojoba esters that make this ideal for daily moisturization.

9. Will this cause me to break out?

No. Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 is oil free and non-comedogenic (meaning that it is specially formulated to not cause blockage of pores).

10. How should this be applied?

Apply liberally and evenly prior to exposure to environmental stressors. Allow to dry by waiting 1-2 minutes between layers. Reapply at least every two hours.

11. Is there a color/tint to it?

Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 has a universal shade due to the coloring of iron oxides. However, when it is applied on the skin, the formula allows it to blend in and dry clear with no white residue unlike other mineral sunscreen care products.

12. Will it work with all skin tones?

Yes, Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 has a universal shade that is suitable for all skin tones. It dries clear and leaves no white residue on the skin.

13. Since this is a zinc oxide formula, will it leave a white cast or residue on my skin?

No, unlike other mineral SPF products, Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 was formulated with proprietary EnviroScreen® Technology using patented zinc oxide. In addition, iron oxides result in a universal shade, leaving no white cast for all skin tones.

14. How long do I have to wait before I go into the sun?

As with all SPF products, Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 should be applied 15 minutes prior to exposure. Like all SPF products, reapply every 2 hours.

15. How much do I need to apply to achieve SPF 50 protection?

The AAD and Skin Cancer Foundation recommend 2 oz (as much as a shot glass) to the entire body. Apply 15 minutes prior to exposure to environmental aggressors and reapply at least every two hours.

16. Is there an expiration date?

After product has been opened, it will last approximately 12 months.

17. How long will a tube last?

As each individuals’ frequency and volume of usage will vary, how long each tube may last will vary. After the product has been opened, it will last approximately 12 months. See bottom of carton for expiration date.

18. Is it water-or-sweat resistant?

Yes, Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Body Shield SPF 50 is water/sweat resistant for 80 minutes.

19. What is the difference between UVA and UVB damage?

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 Shields SPF 50 in Classic and Bronze provide Broad Spectrum SPF 50 (UVB protection) and PA++++ (UVA protection).

20. What does the PA rating mean?

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.

21. What is EnviroScreen® Technology?

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.

22. Can you explain how adherence/water- and sweat- resistance is tested?

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.

23. How do you measure pollution protection?

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™ Brush-on Shield SPF 50 and Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Face 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.

24. How do you measure blue (HEV) light protection?

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).

25. Can I use Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ products on babies?

Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Face Shield SPF 50 is safe to apply to 6 months and older. As with all sunscreen products, consult your physician for use on children under 6 months of age.
All Total Protection™ products use only non-chemical zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide as sunscreen active ingredients. The FDA recognizes only these two sunscreen active ingredients as safe and effective.

26. Can pregnant or nursing women use Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ products?

Total Protection™ products have not been tested on pregnant or nursing women. Consult your physician before using.

27. Are Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ products chemical free?

Yes, Colorescience uses only mineral (also known as physical) sunscreen active ingredients, zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide in all of our sunscreen products. These are the only 2 sunscreen actives the FDA recognizes as safe and effective. Colorescience has never and will never use any chemical sunscreen actives.
