OC Business Spotlight: Coola Suncare

Posted on April 12 2012

With only the occasional cloud, it is difficult to get away from the good weather here in Orange County. As summer approaches and spring showers give way to spring sunshine, you may feel the urge to trade in your winter paleness for the sun-kissed skin OC is known for. Keeping your health in mind, the fact is there is really no safe way to tan. However, you can be smart about your time out in the sun and not only protect yourself against the sun's rays, but avoid covering your skin with numerous chemicals. We worry everyday about what we put into our body, but what about what we put on it? We stumbled upon Coola sunscreen, based here in OC. The organic suncare collection only uses ingredients that are sustainable, locally sourced (when possible), eco-certified and U.S. Dept. of Agriculture certified. What does this mean for you and your epidermis? It means Coola's founder, Chris Birchby, dedicated his life to developing a sunscreen that not only protects and nourishes your skin, but does so without the use of paba, paraben, petroleum or phthalate - besides, if you're not sure what an ingredient is, should you be covering your body with it? Take a look at Coola's all natural, organic ingredient list here, and you can see (and pronounce) them for yourself. The sun emits several different types of light rays, including ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) waves, which tan the skin by darkening the skin’s pigment melanin. Although we love the glow a tan may give our complexion, it is important to be serious about sun protection and Coola follows the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control, U.S. Food and Drug Administration, American Cancer Society and Skin Cancer Foundation. You can rest assured Coola is doing all it can to protect you against wrinkling, age spots and even skin cancer, which will affect 1 in 5 Americans in our lifetime. Coola offers a number of important skin protection tips here. To find OC locations that carry Coola, click here or visit Coola online at
