Summer was way too short, as usual. Thankfully we still have weeks of warm weather, swimming and outdoor activities left in the year. Because we are outdoors so much in the summer I like to use a good SPF on our family. We’ve become hyper-aware of the dangerous chemicals in many popular sunscreens and were really excited to partner with Moms Meet and Coola when given the opportunity to test out a 70%+ organic spray on sunscreen full of antioxidant-rich ingredients like strawberries!

The Coola Guava Mango (SPF 50) spray went on evenly and quickly as we hurried to spend a day on the water with friends. I love spray sunscreen because it’s easy to get a good coating on the kids without wrestling them down and keeping them from wiggling away. We have been using a lot of mineral-based natural sunscreens and they are very difficult to rub in and leave white splotches all over my kids. Our family has a variety of skin-tones and the kids hate looking silly with white, greasy blotches all over their little bodies.

Not only is Coola Guava Mango spray easy to apply it also has ingredients that are good for our skin! Each bright turquoise bottle is full of aloe vera, algae extract and cucumber extract. These natural ingredients work together to soothe skin, renew and heal skin cells and protect against environmental threats. It’s a pretty hard-working sunscreen. Additionally the sport version is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes. We also tried out the Mineral Sport SPF 50 tinted sunscreen stick. I absolutely loved being able to use a tinted sunscreen on my face and skip make up for the day. It went on smoothly and did not pull at my skin like many sunscreen sticks I’ve tried.

Coola operates under the “Farm to Face” code, meaning they believe in sourcing their ingredients and vendors locally to promote communities and jobs as well as cutting down on the costs of long distance shipping (both financial and environmental). In addition they use their platform to encourage and sustain local and organic farming. Just as we are careful about what we put IN our body we need to be aware of what we put ON our body as well.
