I discovered this amazing sunscreen while getting some R&R at a spa in Arizona. Of course I came stocked with my own but couldn’t resist trying this baby as it was screaming my name from the shelf at the spa’s gift shop. Its really groovy fun packaging and name, and of course its certification of being made with organic ingredients had me at hello. So with a name like COOLA, you’d better be cool and I’m here to tell you it totally is!
There is always a backstory when someone makes a healthy alternative to something toxic and COOLA’S founder Chris Birchby has really put it all in perspective. After a family scare of skin cancer, he decided it was his mission to come up with sun protection that met all his needs. It was obvious to him that it had to be free of harmful chemicals which can cause cancer in the first place, and with the help of an enthusiastic team of chemists, this native California surfer managed to produce a line of upscale sun protection that not only offers a vast amount of diversity but has me wanting to use nothing else! The textures are SO amazing under my makeup; they are ultra sheer and have proven after days at the pool that even my most sensitive skin areas were nurtured and protected.
COOLA is made here in sunny So Cal in small batches, so that Mr. Birchby and his team can re-formulate at the drop of a hat to stay current with new scientific developments which will keep us free from harmful rays.
