Bionic Review: Coola’s Organic Sunscreen

by Bionic Beauty on 12.Jun.2010 · 7 comments

Are you looking for a more natural Sunblock/Sunscreen for this summer? Look no further! I just finished testing Coola’s Total Body Unscented SPF 30 Organic Moisturizing Suncare in the extreme Florida sunshine. In short- it’s fabulous!

Bionic Beauty review - Coola Total Body Organic Unscented SPF 30 Sunscreen

Coola - An organic sunblock that works!!

Now for the details ~
Coola offers a variety of mineral and organic sunscreens for face, lips, and body; plus a few different scents (which they are expanding soon!). The Total Body SPF 30 is fragrance, paba, paraben, and petroleum free. The formula includes certified organic ingredients (full listing below) with several oils and Aloe for moisture. The drawback for me of many “natural” or organic sunblocks is that they leave your skin looking chalky white. Not so with Coola. It soaked right away without being too greasy.

Check out CoolaSuncare.com for all their products. The Total Body Unscented SPF 30 costs $30 for a 5 ounce tube but since this sunblock spreads easily and evenly, the tube lasts quite awhile.
