HOW TO USE

Before you get started, ‘break through’ the first layer of your Color Balm with your fingertips, by rubbing it on the back of your hand for a few strokes. Once you get through the topmost layer, Color Balm is easy to apply, with a color payoff.

1. Apply directly to the skin and blend.
This will result in an instant bold color that can be blended for your desired finish look. Perfect method for cheek and lips application.

2. Warm up and apply with clean fingers.
Use the tip of your finger to warm up Color Balm and apply to skin by swiping a few times back and forth. This method is ideal for eyelid application, just be sure to tap very gently.

3. Apply with a clean makeup brush.
This method is preferred when looking to achieve a light, buildable color for an easy customized look.

Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Color Balms SPF 50 are water/sweat resistant for 40 minutes. As Color Balms SPF 50 are not stains or longwear, matte finish formulas, they are not smudgeproof. How long color lasts will vary based on activity, just as with many other lip products with a similar emollient finishes.

Color Balms SPF 50 should not be stored in a vehicle as the temperature inside a car can become excessively high. Avoid frequent or long-term direct exposure to sun and heat.

12. 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.

13. 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.

14. 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.

15. 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).

16. 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.

29. 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.

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 | Total # of min 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 SPF 50 has a PA++++ rating.

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