Please note that due to logistic and legislation changes we are no longer able to ship Sunumbra sunscreens directly to our many faithful US and other International customers from our warehouse in Traverse City, Michigan.

As you may well know Sunumbra was developed in South Africa over 13 years ago and from inception has been manufactured in an Eco Certified laboratory in Pitermaritzburg, SA. We have found that there has been considerable demand to post direct from South Africa, even though delivery times can take 3 or more weeks.

free shipping anywhere in the world whilst maintaining original US$ prices unchanged.

Thank you for your understanding.
