Summertime is the most patriotic time of the year, especially with 4th of July being right in the middle of the season. What better way to engage your patriotic spirit than to sport American-made products this July? We’ve included our favorite American beauty products for summer from some of our favorite brands. Even better, these products are made from some of the freshest ingredients, like organic evening primrose and linseed oils.

Not only do we love that these are American beauty products, but they’re great for hot summer weather, keeping skin young and healthy, and for making sure you’re photo-ready no matter the occasion.

Here are our favorite American beauty products for summer:

COOLA Face Sport SPF 50 White Tea, $32

COOLA Classic Face Sport SPF 50 White Tea Moisturizer

Even if you’re not spending the day in the sun, it’s important to protect your skin (and especially your face) from sun damage. Did you know the sun can harm your skin even when you’re driving to and from work? Protect your skin and boost your skin’s defense against aging caused by the sun with this antioxidant-infused, Farm to Face sourced broad spectrum SPF 50 sunscreen.

The moisturizer is designed for your face’s more sensitive skin, so the high performance 80-minute water resistant formula is created with 70%+ certified organic ingredients and features an invigorating natural white tea scent. Infused with organic evening primrose and linseed oils, the moisturizer evens skin tone and balances moisture. Safflower oleosomes provide lasting hydration, making this sport face sunscreen keep up with your active lifestyle.

We love how lightweight the moisturizer is and how well it sets in under makeup—there’s no excuse not to use it daily! As far as we’re concerned this sport sunscreen and moisturizer is one of the most essential beauty products for summer—from pool to tennis court to running errands.

Boka Natural Toothpaste, $8


While the summer season is no doubt patriotic, it’s also one of the most photogenic seasons of the year. You have to document your summer adventures on Intsa, am I right?! Keep your smile pearly white with this all-natural toothpaste.

Avoid toothpastes full of chemicals. Most conventional toothpastes use unnecessary (and often harmful) ingredients that don’t add up to a healthy mouth. Boka Natural Toothpaste will help you achieve a healthy mouth, and it actually feels good to brush your teeth! The high-quality, natural ingredients make this a refreshing paste free of fluoride, SLS, triclosan, parabens, and artificial ingredients.

The serum will keep your makeup in place even after running around, cooking, and chatting over summer cocktails. The smooth, weightless consistency makes it a great canvas for flawless makeup application.

In addition, the product boasts a bevy of natural ingredients and antioxidants and is vegan and cruelty-free.
