This week on our Instagram Live, we had the pleasure of hosting Sara-Jane Fitzpatrick of Colorescience: one of the most beloved suncare and skincare brands that we carry. When it comes to sunlight, pollution, free radicals, and more––no one does skin protection better than Colorescience!
WHAT IS COLORESCIENCE ALL ABOUT?
The idea behind the brand’s entire positioning is that by investing in scientific innovation now, your skin won’t have to pay the price of damage later.
“We believe in going way beyond UV, and that’s why physicians love us,” explains Sara-Jane. “We’re obsessively overprotective about preventing skin damage and we know skincare innovation!”
A CLEAN SUN PROTECTION LIKE NO OTHER
The best defense against skin damage and photoaging is a mineral suncare offense. Mineral (also known as physical) sunscreens work by protecting your skin and physically reflecting UV light rather than absorbing it. They also better protect against blue light, infrared radiation, and free-radical damage.
Sara-Jane took the time to explain Colorescience’s patented EnviroScreen Technology, which is the basis of all their mineral sunscreen products. Essentially, she explained, minerals aren’t all made the same. It was important to develop a sort of molecular coding, if you will, to protect the skin from the high sunlight reactivity in zinc oxide and titanium dioxide (sunscreen’s top two ingredients).
These two minerals are highly reactive to sunlight, and while they protect your skin from UV rays, they can cause the release of free radicals which we know are toxic to the skin. Colorescience’s innovative technology prevents this damage from happening, which is why they are so gentle on the skin and truly work.
WHAT MAKES COLORESCIENCE STAND OUT?
Colorescience products are formulated with only 100% natural minerals, antioxidants, and botanicals. No chemicals are ever involved and each formula is built with potent, clinically-tested ingredients to maximize results for long-term skin health.
Because Colorescience products are so gentle on the skin, they are safe and highly recommended for post-procedure usage. Patients really like the look, they like the feel, and they like what it does for their skin! Dr. Elizabeth Arthur of Helendale Dermatology & Medical Spa says she “loves that Colorescience won’t add fillers or things that are going to inflame the skin more—they actually put things in that are going to help the skin [repair].”
The ingredients in Colorescience’s mineral sunscreens have higher water resistance and cause less white cast. They are also both calming and hydrating for the skin: for example, the beloved Sunforgettable® Brush-On Shield SPF 50 includes a Hyaluronic Acid powder inside!
They have also been recognized for multiple merits, such as The Beauty Authority’s Best Powder Sunscreen in 2020, as well as Allure’s Best Mineral Sunscreen and ELLE’s Future of Beauty winner in 2021…amongst others!
