Hi, this is Dr. Davis for Coolibar Sun Protective Clothing.
I wanted to give you some pointes on getting ready for a day at the beach or pool. You know you are going to be outside, you’ve got the kids in tow, and you’re wondering – What do I put in my beach bag?
The basics to keep you Sun Safe the whole day include sunscreen, what you choose depends on your preference, but a nice high SPF sunscreen, such as Vanicream 60, or the kid’s love the Blue Lizard sunscreen which is a combination of chemical and physical, plus the bottle will also tell you when to put it on, it turns blue in ultraviolet light.
Sunglasses and Sun Hat
The other thing – sunglasses. Even for the kids, eye protection is important. For the kids, Coolibar makes an excellent UV protective lens, but also this nice strap so that it stays on in the water. And I do recommend leaving the sunglasses on in the water as well as the hat, which might be a surprise. But Coolibar makes some chlorine and salt water resistant fabrics that the kids put on and just leave on all day. They can be simply washed, but they are resistant to those chemicals that otherwise might harm fabrics.
Sun Protective Clothing
Last but not least, the sun protective clothing. There are some absolutely adorable outfits for kids you put on and you don’t have to worry about re-applying the sunscreen except for those little parts that are showing, like the tops of their feet, tops of their hands.

…keep your family sun safe for the whole day.
So teach your family to be SunAWARE and you’ll keep them safe!

“I was looking forward to wearing my [Coolibar Beach] shirt as it felt so light and weightless when I pulled it out of the package. Our Florida climate presented a perfect day to wear it to the beach. The first thing I noted was how incredibly light this shirt really was, as I couldn’t even feel it on my body. The cooler air from the ocean could easily flow through it, keeping me cool; which is very important in Florida where we have 90oF+ days during the summer. It was a very comfortable shirt and quite trendy, sporting a nice size hoodie, that made me feel like a celebrity. (see picture) My husband was having a lot of fun too running around taking pictures of the two of us working the “beach runway” and enjoying our new Coolibar gear. And why not, we looked awesome, and felt very comfortable while being well protected from the sun. A couple of people actually approached us to ask where we got our cool clothes. Bingo, Coolibar!
“March in Florida offers the perfect weather to get out, but the water was still cool for swimming yet. So we played a lot in the sand, making sand castles and just being silly running around chasing each other. As no family “photo-shoot” ever goes without bloopers, the battery in our camera died just before we decided to test out the water, and wet our toes properly. Of course we’ve got soaked. That was something worth seeing. I am happy to report that my shirt stayed looking good wet, as well as dry and actually dried up in no time without clinging to my body. I loved the fact that our clothes, being wet, haven’t attracted too much sand either, which usually is a nuisance to clean up. Our son had particularly lots of fun throwing the sand on me as you can see, but we had no problems there. Just lots of fun and memorable moments. He looked so cute in his outfit [Toddler Water Polo Swim Set]. He is not much of a hat wearer and put up a bit of a fight in the beginning, but 5 minutes later he got used to it, and enjoyed the whole outfit just as much as I’ve enjoyed watching him wearing it. Or perhaps he also wanted to show off what a good model he is, just in case Coolibar is hiring new models. 🙂
“Overall, we are very happy with our outfits and will wear them often, especially living in Sunny Florida.”
“As a mom I am delighted to share with other moms my discoveries of the greatest products I come across…and Coolibar certainly offers a few worth bragging about. I was looking for something sun protective for my baby that was bright and colorful and combined style with function. When I received my Coolibar catalog there were quite a few items that matched what I had in mind. I’ve purchased a couple of baby rompers, a hat for myself and some sunscreens and was very satisfied with the quality of the merchandise, quick delivery and samples I received with it. Living in Florida, we go to the beach often and I feel very confident that my baby is well protected from head to toe (see photo). I love those baby rompers, very functional and protective, not only from the sun, but also sand and other elements, kids usually get into. We always get so many compliments and inquiries of where we got them from. Way to go Coolibar, keep up the great work!!”
