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.

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 original US$ prices unchanged.

Thank you for your understanding.

Sunumbra Family Broad Spectrum protection

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 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.

Most sunscreens lack UVA protection, or sufficient levels of UVA protection. 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 family 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 found in most other sunscreens. These photo-protective and highly water resistant ingredients combine to provide powerful anti-radiation properties. This gives sunumbra family its exceptional ability to protect against both UVA and UVB light at the highest level.

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...
