#1 EWG Best Moisturizers with SPF selection
The world is waking up fast to the potential toxic effects of chemical based sunscreens to both humans and the environment - resulting in increased demand for fully natural zinc based sunscreens.
From inception 10 years ago to now, Sunumbra sunscreens focus on offering not only fully natural protection from the sun but also strengthening your own natural healing and repair properties for any free radical DNA damage caused by UV, InfraRed or Blue Light radiation.
Chemical sunscreens are specifically designed to penetrate the skin in order to be effective, creating the potential for contaminating the blood stream. They have not yet been legislated to prove they do not damage our health.
Hence we chose zinc oxide alone, acknowledging it for its powerful broad spectrum, balanced UVA & UVB protection. No chemical sunscreen ingredients contaminate our formulas.
Pricing and re-seller discounts are on the shopping cart pages.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON SHIPPING.
Please note that due to logistic and legislation changes we are no longer able to ship Sunumbra sunscreens directly to our many faithful US 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 SA, even though delivery times can take 2 - 3 weeks.
In view of this, as well as making the process of ordering Sunumbra easier, we are offering free shipping anywhere in the world whilst maintaining the current US$ prices.
Thank you for your understanding.

Besides the natural and organic qualities that are the sunumbra® trademark, the main purpose in creating this Daily sunscreen was to provide a light, non-whitening, moisturising, DAILY sunscreen that provides excellent balanced protection from both the UVA and UVB rays, as well as antioxidants to fight off the free radicals that bombard us every day.
Our original intention to produce a sunumbra® SPF15 sunscreen product without any of the current chemical or physical sunscreen filters used globally and only to make use of specific botanical ingredients that provide protection from the sun, was thwarted by legislative issues around the use of these botanicals being acknowledged for their protective qualities.
The increasing demand for a quality natural sunscreen for use on a daily basis prompted us to proceed with the launching of this sunscreen with SPF15 and balanced UVA protection.
Although still using the trusted and favoured zinc oxide, we have included the botanicals that have continued to delight and excite us with their potential of protecting us in a more natural way.
Sunumbra Daily is a natural sunscreen containing organic ingredients that is specially formulated for every day protection, all year round...
Sunumbra Daily provides...
Most sunscreens lack UVA protection, or sufficient levels of UVA protection.
Most important though, is to balance the protection for both UVA and UVB.
UVB protection that is too high, with a lower protection for UVA, effectively allows the UVA rays to penetrate the skin for longer, at a deeper level, thereby damaging your DNA.
Many high SPF products protect against sunburn caused by UVB rays, but very few block the deep penetrating UVA rays enough, which cause skin ageing, immune system suppression and skin cancer.
Sunumbra Daily is made exclusively from natural and organic ingredients. It is the unique combination of these ingredients that has enabled the total replacement of harmful chemicals to be found in many sunscreens.
These photo-protective ingredients combine to provide wonderful anti-radiation properties, which boost your protection capabilities against both UVA and UVB light every day.
A study by the Environmental Working Group revealed that less than 20% of sunscreens were both 'low hazard' and 'effective'. This was largely because the other 80% contained potentially harmful chemicals...
