Have any of you heard of Coola Suncare before? I sure didn't until I worked a beauty boutique focused around clean beauty. So what is Coola? 🤔
Coola is an American mineral suncare line that is formulated with 70% certified organic ingredients. Their ingredients are certified organic by 3rd party USDA acredited certifying agents such as; Oregon Tilth, EcoCert S.A., and Quality Assurance International. This company also abides by Hawaii's new Suncreen Law which bans certain chemical ingredients that are harmful to coral reefs, such as Oxybenzone and Octinoxate. These two ingredients are "believed to contribute to coral bleaching. When coral bleaches, it is not dead, but under significant stress and subject to increased mortality levels. According to the National Park Service, 14,000 tons of sunscreen enter coral reefs every year. These now banned chemicals are believed to be one of the contributing factors to the coral reef destruction" (https://www.hawaii.com/blog/reef-safe-sunscreen/). On top of this, Coola is Non-GMO, Vegan, Gluten Free, Paraben Free, and Cruelty Free. 🎉🙌🏼
Since using this suncare line I have fallen in love with it more and more. Not only do I have the assurance that my skin is being protected from the harmful UV Rays and that I'm contributing to a company that is helping to protect the reefs, but it feels so good on my skin! I have been using the Face Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 in the Cucumber Moisturizer and the Makeup Setting Spray Organic Sunscreen SPF 30 for a few months now every single morning. Combining these two products on a daily basis has finally put an end to any excuse to not putting any SPF on my face regardless of what season we're in.
When I made the switch from a regular suncreen from a drugstore and not paying attention to the ingredients, to actually paying attention on what I put on body has made such a difference in my life. Most of us pay attention to what we eat but not so much with what we put on our bodies, when we should be paying attention to both aspects. Using products that have good clean ingredients and not harmful to our bodies is so important because it makes us feel more beautiful and confident in our skin.
I hope that this bit of information has helped you feel more at ease in choosing a sunscreen product(s) that you feel comfortable and confident using knowing the ingredients are safe for the skin. You can find these products and many more on the Coola website, Sephora, and Socialite Beauty.
