All about: COOLA suncare


I recently returned from eight days in Fiji –I know, lucky me! – and just before I left received some samples of COOLA suncare products. It was a name I wasn’t familiar with but after a little digging thought it was definitely worth a bash, and my gut instinct was SO right!
A beautifully packaged collection of organic sun essentials produced out of Southern California, the COOLA range includes a plethora of yummy products that are high performance yet delicate and luxurious enough to compliment any skincare regimen - no matter how fussy, and even after cosmetic procedures – and are kind on the environment. It is produced in limited quantity batches in California (where the company is based), meaning that the range can be reformulated often, taking advantage of new developments in sun science and labeling regulations almost as they happen.
The COOLA range has three distinct organic sunscreen collections to choose from: Plant UV, Mineral, and Classic, each based on different active ingredients. The Classic Sunscreens use organic active ingredients (commonly referred to as “chemicals”), while the Mineral Sunscreens use mineral (“physical”) active ingredients like Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide to scatter and reflect UVA/UVB rays. The mineral sunscreens are effective right after application, making them perfect for the whole family. The Plant UV collection protects the skin with naturally protective plant cells that contain antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. All are blended into luxurious, moisturising bases which make up about 90 per cent of the product, and 70 per cent of this includes certified organic ingredients. 
One of my favourites on holiday was the SPORT SPF 35 Piña Colada Sunscreen Spray, which offers Broad Spectrum SPF 35 protection along with the ability to nourish, repair and hydrate skin with 97 per cent certified organic ingredients. These include Aloe, Cucumber, Algae and Strawberry Extracts; and Red Raspberry Seed Oil, a natural sunscreen and anti-inflammatory rich in Omega-3 and 6.  Oh and it’s also available in a Citrus Mimosa scent if Piña Colada is not your bag!
