sunumbra classic spf30

Sunumbra Classic 

This was our first sunscreen produced, providing:

  • SPF30 protection from the UVB rays for average every day activities in the outdoors
  • Broad Spectrum. High protection from UVA rays, providing an excellent Broad Spectrum protection
  • Consistency. Soft and Creamy to allow for easy application
  • Colour. A soft beige tint from the botanical ingredients has proven to be very popular for those who like to offset any possible whiteness from the zinc oxide.

This sunscreen is a great favourite and many people choose this as their everyday sunscreen for both body and face, for young or old, and for all skin types. 

Potential Staining. The tint can cause some staining but is avoidable with application care and is easily removed. eg. Apply and let dry before you put clothes on and preferably don't wear white clothes. Remove any sign of stains using a non-toxic bleach before washing.

If you prefer not to have to manage any potential for staining, see our Non-tinted sunscreens - Sunumbra Sport, Sunumbra Daily and Sunumbra Family below.

sunumbra classic

sunumbra sunkids

Sunumbra Sunkids
Based on the Sunumbra Classic, but requested and created especially for children, it provides increased sun protection levels plus a hugely increased boost to the immune system:

  • Increased UVB protection. The SPF40 provides for greater UVB sun protection 
  • UVA protection remains high for excellent Broad Spectrum protection
  • Increased immune boost through the addition of one of the most powerful antioxidants, astaxanthin, to the existing botanical antioxidants
  • Colour. This contains a pink-beige tint 

Staining is possible The tint can cause some staining but is avoidable with application care and is easily removed. eg. Apply and let dry before you put clothes on and preferably don't wear white clothes. Remove any sign of stains using a non-toxic bleach before washing.

sunumbra daily

Sunumbra Daily

Created especially for every day wear... as a daily moisturiser for some or in addition to your daily moisturiser

The main purpose is to provide a light, non-whitening, moisturising, DAILY sunscreen that still provides excellent balanced protection from both the UVA and UVB rays. 

Many people choose to wear this every day as their moisturiser, or on top of their moisturiser. Those with a dry or combination skin type sometimes prefer to wear it on top of their moisturizer. An oily skin type typically wears only the Sunumbra Daily sunscreen.

Mixing your moisturiser together with this sunscreen will detract from the SPF and UVA protection effect, so rather wear it on top of your moisturiser.

Sunumbra® daily also contains properties that boost your skin’s natural health abilities, from the inside out, no matter whether you’re exposed to the sun's rays or not. Wearing it daily will therefore increase your own body's internal protection capabilities.
