Coola Off: Coola Mineral Sunscreen

Greenista Girl Neha

Does the August sun have you sizzling? Chill out with Coola sunscreen – a must-have all year round. Coola’s moisture-rich mineral sunscreen is jam-packed with natural phyto-protectors like plankton and beeswax, certified organic extracts, age-defying antioxidants and last but not least, vitamins that provide that extra umph our skin needs. You won’t have to worry about polluting the water after your daily dip at the beach because Coola’s natural sun blockers like Titanium and Zinc Oxide will karate chop those rays of sun without leaving a stream of chemicals behind. All of Coola’s super cool sunscreen formulas are Paba-Paraben-Petroleum-Phthalate-free, 100% made in the USA, and has SPF 20 or higher. And unlike those other greasy sunscreens, Coola comes in luscious scents like cucumber, rose, mimosa and, of course, unscented starting at $34. Cool, man.

You're almost never safe from exposure to UVA rays which are the cause of premature aging in skin and cancer (eek!). These bothersome rays can go through windows, light clothing, and even your windshield … so lather up that sunscreen

    Interesting topic. I plan to build my first blog, based on similar topics to those from here. Thanks for the work that you do for this blog!

Don’t forget to apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before hitting the outdoors. This time allows the skin to soak up the cream, hopefully with body-friendly ingredients.

The Big ‘Screen: Eco Sunscreen

Greenista Girl Neha

Want your skin to get Hollywood royalty treatment? Make it a star with ThinkBaby eco sunscreen. ThinkBaby specializes in safe, eco-friendly products that provide all the advantages of chemical products, but without the damages. On our radar: ThinkBaby and ThinkSport. It has an SPF of 30 and is water resistant. Although it’s made with the babes in mind, the Greeenista Girls love to use it on their grownup bods. These two types of sunscreens provide a safe alternative to harsh carcinogens and hormone disruptors. Did you know that toxic chemicals from other sunscreens have been known to leak into the blood stream within 26 seconds of exposure? Yikes! Bonus: Thanks to the high amount of zinc in ThinkBaby sunscreens, there is no white “ghostly” effect either. We’re ready for our close-up.

Your ‘screen should be made with natural sun blockers like Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide. If you are unsure about the chemicals in your current sunscreen, search about them online at the Cosmetics Database.

The Coast is Clear: Non-Toxic Sunscreens

Brianne

Harsh rays can be terrifying but chemical-laden sunscreens are too. Most sun lotions contain toxins like oxybenzone  — a probable carcinogen that can damage DNA. These terrifying chems can seep into your skin and wash off your body into lakes and oceans impacting marine life negatively. Instead, go for eco-friendly mineral-based sunscreens that block rays without nasty chems. They use natural UVA and UVB blockers like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. Fear not — to help us sort through it, here is a list of the top 10 Environmental Working Group - approved mineral-based sunscreens:

  • All Terrain

  • Badger

  • Beyond Coastal

  • California Baby

  • Caribbean Solutions

  • Desert Essence

  • Episencial

  • Estion

  • Jason Natural Cosmetics

  • Kabana Skin Care

Greenista Cocktail Factoid: Researchers estimate that about 4,000 to 6,000 metric tons of sunscreen wash off swimmers annually into oceans worldwide and that sunscreen-induced bleaching threatens up to 10% of coral reefs.
