If you’ve already tried the Coola Mineral Sunscreen that came in your autumn Yuzen box, you might be wondering why it worked so well and felt so good on your skin. Well, there’s a big difference between natural (or mineral-based) sunscreens and chemical-based formulas, and it’s not just what they’re made of, but how they work.
Chemical-based sunscreens actually cause a chemical reaction right on your skin, absorbing the sun’s harmful rays and then turning them into heat. This heat then dissipates from the skin into the air. Effective, true, but the ingredients are pretty harsh, and does anyone really want a chemical reaction occurring right on their skin?
Mineral-based sunscreens protect the skin just as successfully, but they don’t use any harsh chemicals at all. They use nontoxic, ground-up minerals like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to reflect (instead of absorb) the sun’s rays, kind of like a mirror deflecting them away from you. Natural sunscreens like this also get to work right away—no waiting around while chemicals are absorbed into your skin.
Coola makes all-natural suncare for every lifestyle. There are formulas specifically for face or body, tinted or untinted, scented or unscented, spray or lotion, and even a matte finish that does double-duty by helping to fill in fine lines and wrinkles on your face.
