Are you looking for your perfect mineral face sunscreen that doesn’t leave your face either all white or oily? My greatest discovery this weekend is Coola, a San Diego based sun care brand that holds what the name promises. This sunscreen is pretty cool for a few reasons: it is 70% organic using Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide as sun blockers, it is produced in facilities powered with solar energy, and it comes in a sleek package which is recyclable and biodegradable. The lotion has an amazingly light and silky texture (I want to reapply it all the time just for the feeling of it!!) and absorbs immediately into the skin leaving the face with an even tone and matte complexion. This sunscreen is water-resistant and has a broad spectrum SPF which means that it protects against UVA and UVB rays. Inactive ingredients with great skin-benefiting properties include Shea Butter, Cucumber extract, Glycerin, Plankton extract, Evening Primrose and Rose Hip oil. Rose Hip oil repairs scar tissue and helps against hyper-pigmentation, sun damage and aging.
I absolutely love this 360 degree approach to do things stylishly and health consciously at the same time. The products are never animal tested and the company donates a portion of their profits to an organization named Save Our Seas, which is dedicated to educate and research about preserving and restoring the world’s oceans.
For everyone who prefers spray to lotion: the Coola also has cocktail inspired sun sprays with Citrus Mimosa and Pina Colada scents..
Where to buy:
Coola sunscreen products can be found in stores and spas in the US and Canada, the Caribbeans and a few other countries around the world like Italy, Ireland, New Zealand, United Arab Emirates and online on Amazon:
