Evil UV rays must be blocked, but is the list of unpronounceable ingredients contained in chemical sunscreens really better? It’s hard to say, but thankfully, we’ve found a sweet solution.
Coola Sunscreen SPF 35 Spray ($32 at Chapters) is made from 97 per cent natural ingredients. Think soothing aloe, cucumber and algae extract as well as red raspberry seed oil—a natural sunscreen with anti-inflammatory properties.
The weightless formula contains no nanoparticles, its spray format is easy to use and the pina colada or mimosa fragrances are incredibly addictive.
The only thing missing? A paper umbrella. —Christine Laroche
