Eco-entrepeneur Chris Birchby was inspired to create COOLA in 2004 after facing melanoma scares in his family, which were a result of inadequate protection from the sun’s harmful rays. After obtaining an MFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Chris spent the next five years researching sun science and developing formulas. It was important that Chris helped formulate products that were not harmful or used smelly ingredients found in traditional sunscreens. With an elite team of industry professionals-including several top FDA experts on sun protection – he created a hot new sunscreen monograph, no pun intended.
Today COOLA continues to pave the way in the suncare industry. And because we produce in limited quantity batches in California, we’re able to reformulate often, taking advantage of new developments in sun science. Persistently striving to make every customer a satisfied one, COOLA offers high performance suncare products that are still both delicate and luxurious enough to compliment anyone’s daily skincare regimen, no matter how fussy.
COOLA invites you to stay in the glow while you stay in the know.
