Want to avoid skin cancers, sun damage and the signs of aging?

Start wearing sunscreen. Now.

Dr. Peterson recommends protecting your skin to avoid the risk of developing melanoma, age spots, uneven pigmentation and skin damage including painful burns caused by prolonged and unprotected sun exposure.

The sun’s UVA rays can penetrate deep into your skin, leading to changes in pigment, wrinkles and skin damage. In addition, UVB radiation from the sun can damage the surface, leaving you with sunburns.

To protect your skin, we offer several high-quality sunscreens to fit your lifestyle and keep your skin looking youthful and healthy.

Dr. Peterson is proud to offer patients Colorescience Sunscreen mineral-based sunscreen products.


Why Choose Mineral Sunscreens for Sun Protection?

These products contain zinc oxide and titanium oxide, the No. 1 and No. 2 sunscreen filters, and do not contain chemical sun blockers. As a result, these active ingredients in these mineral-based sunscreens physically block the rays of the sun, providing you with strong sun protection against the harmful effects of the sun’s damaging UVA/UVB rays. These products are also safe for all types of skin, even sensitive skin and light skin tones.

They’re Suitable for Daily Use. Colorescience products are great to use every day and are lightly tinted to fade into your natural tone providing effective, but sheer coverage.

They Improve the Quality of Your Skin. Colorescience sunscreens help leave your skin smooth and soft.

They’re Safe. Colorescience products are safe for the whole family, including for children. Not only are they free from chemical sunscreen filters, but they’re also free from oils, dyes, fragrances and PABA.

They’re Broad Spectrum. The photoprotective effects of these products mean they block both UVA and UVB rays.

They Last. Colorescience sunscreens are photostable, meaning they do not break down in sunlight. They’re also water-resistant for up to 40 minutes.

They’re Gentle. Colorescience sunscreens are safe and gentle and will not irritate the skin. They’re also appropriate for all skin types and are gentle enough to use after aesthetic skin services, including laser treatment, microdermabrasion and chemical peels.

The Benefits of Colorescience Sunscreen

Colorescience zinc-oxide-based sunscreen products combine the best of the best in mineral makeup, sun care and skincare to protect your skin and improve your skin’s appearance.

Colorescience contains micronized minerals and reduces inflammation and redness while protecting you from the sun’s damaging rays and correcting skin issues. This sunscreen is safe for sensitive and ultra-sensitive skin.

Colorescience sunscreens use natural and antioxidant ingredients such as green tea, grapeseed and oak wood to help combat free radicals caused by the sun’s damaging rays.

Some Colorescience products also contain ultra-hydrating hyaluronic acid to help soothe and calm your skin.

Another benefit of Colorescience Sunscreen is that it allows you to look natural while protecting your skin. You no longer have to worry about looking chalky or greasy because your sunscreen doesn’t blend in; Colorescience powder sunscreens are slightly tinted, leaving you with a flawless finish with every use.

Colorescience Blue Light Protection

While we have long known that sunscreen is a critical part of protecting you from the damage caused by UVA/UVB rays, Colorescience also provides you protection from other types of harmful light forms, including blue light emitted from electronic devices such as computers, tablets and smartphones. When you’re considering adding sunscreen to your daily skincare regimen, ask yourself if it is giving you all the protection you need.


Blue light, also known as high-energy visible light (HEV light), is one of the colors you can see in the visible light spectrum. While blue light can help improve alertness and boost your mood and productivity, it also has adverse effects. We’ve long hear about the effects of blue light on the eyes and sleep cycle, you may not know that it can damage the skin and leave you at risk of developing melanoma. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends using an SPF 30+ sunscreen when outdoors during peak hours between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. If you spend time indoors, consider applying a broad spectrum SPF 15+ product before going outside.

Colorescience helps to block out blue light and is made up of:

  • Iron oxides: These micronized pigments help to protect the skin from damage caused by blue light.
  • Zinc oxide: This mineral ingredient serves as a protective barrier from the sun’s rays and also blue light away from the skin, preventing damage.
  • Antioxidants: Antioxidants help to nourish your skin and stop free radicals, oxidative stress and pollutants caused by the environment and UV rays from causing damage to your skin.
  • Hyaluronic Acid: Hyaluronic acid is a critical component of your skin and body tissues. It helps to restore your skin’s moisture, as well as prevent the signs of aging.

Save For You, Safe for the Environment

Do you know that chemical sunscreens can damage ecosystems? These products have been linked to the death of coral reefs. While it is important to protect your skin, it’s also critical that we protect marine life from dangerous chemicals. Colorescience offers all-natural, reef-safe sunscreen products that protect you and the environment.
