At COOLA, we believe that clean beauty should feel as good as it is healthy, which is exactly why we're on a quest to develop organic products you'll love wearing everyday.
Here at COOLA, we are conscious about what goes into our products, but we're equally as concerned with what we keep out. We follow a strict restricted ingredient list that goes beyond industry standards to exclude over 1000+ questionable or harmful ingredients from all of our formulations.
All of our fragrances are 100% natural, with all constituents extracted from plant sources. We do not use any synthetic fragrances in any of our products. Unlike common industry practice, we are one of the few companies that choose to disclose the ingredients and constituents in all of our fragrances, so you can rest assured of what is in our formulas.

As South Boston’s first and only natural health and wellness apothecary, we have carefully curated a selection of products from Coola made with ingredients everyone can pronounce.

WHAT IS HARMFUL BLUE LIGHT?
Blue light (also known as high energy visible light, or HEV) is the strong light that emits from the screens on cell phones, computers, tablets, and TVs, as well as from fluorescent and LED lighting. The sun also emits blue light, so you’re exposed to it when you’re outside, too. Yep, it’s everywhere.
Research indicates that blue light can reach deeper into our skin than UVA and UVB rays, passing through both the epidermal and dermal layers to reach the subcutaneous tissues—and perhaps even deeper. And it’s causing trouble all along the way. One study suggests that blue light may be as harmful to skin as UVA and UVB light combined.
the truth behind the light
The sunlight that reaches us is made up of two types of harmful rays: long wave ultraviolet A (UVA) and short wave ultraviolet B (UVB). UVA rays penetrate deep into the dermis, the skin’s thickest layer.
Unprotected exposure can lead to premature skin aging and wrinkling (photoaging), and suppression of the immune system. UVB rays will usually burn the superficial layers of your skin. It plays a key role in the development of skin cancer. The intensity of UVB rays vary by season, location and time of day, with 10AM to 2PM being the peak hours. Sunburned skin doesn’t just feel awful, it can cause permanent damage over time.
90% of visible signs of aging are due to sun damage
Up to 20% of the suns harmful rays can penetrate your skin, even during a cloudy day
10AM-2PM is when the suns rays are the strongest
Use cation when near water, snow, and sand. They reflect the damaging rays of the sun which can increase your risk of burning.
Sunscreen should be applied to dry skin 15 minutes before going outside
1oz (or a full shot glass) worth of sunscreen is recommended when wearing a bathing suit or minimal clothing
