Does Colorescience test on animals?
Colorescience does not conduct any animal testing and we are committed to the highest standards when choosing raw materials for our product formulations. We require non-animal testing statements on all raw materials before final formula approval.

Is Total Protection sunscreen safe to use on babies?
Our SPF products are 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.
Are Colorescience products safe to use while pregnant or nursing?
We strive to provide outstanding products that are efficacious while also gentle and safe for our customers. For individuals with allergy concerns or women who are pregnant, lactating or planning to become pregnant, it is always best to check with your physician to advise on a list of what products/ingredients should be avoided and then cross-reference to our ingredient lists on our website. We always recommend double checking with your physician to make sure there is nothing you have any heightened sensitivities to while pregnant.
What is EnviroScreenTechnology?
EnviroScreen® Technology is proprietary to Colorescience. EnviroScreen® Technology uses patented active ingredients, Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, which 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.
Do I need to use foundation with the new shades of Face Shield?
It really depends on your personal preference. The products were not designed to replace your foundation or offer full coverage. Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50 Glow is a golden-champagne formula that gives you lit-from-within look to any skin type. Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50 Bronze blends invisibly into darker skin tones and delivers a boost of luminosity and warmth to lighter skin tones. Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50 Medium-Original is a neutral peachy shade that blends seamlessly into all skin tones.
I noticed some Sunforgettable Total Protection products contain mica. Are these safe and ethically-sourced?
The micas that Colorescience uses are ethically sourced. They are sourced from various parts of the world, including Japan, U.S. Mica is not a derivative of asbestos. Our mica vendors adhere to global regulations pertaining to the quality and safety of cosmetic ingredients. The mica used in Colorescience products is mined and processed to meet consistent standards of high quality, safety and aesthetics. Our mica passes or exceeds the standards for heavy metal and microbial testing.
