Dual interests in healthy living and the natural environment led me to the development, formulation and manufacture of sunumbra sunscreens. After extensive research into the benefits of natural and organic products, plus the added influence of a love of the outdoors and tragic personal melanoma experiences, a healthy, non-toxic range of products for sun protection was created.
An integral part of this creation, having lived most of my life in Africa, was the inclusion of various African botanicals for their sun protective properties. This introduced a uniqueness to the sunscreen range, as we don’t just protect the skin from the sun, we also provide added healing qualities and an ability to help reverse any potential damage done by the sun.
The cutaneous antioxidant system is complex, interlinked and operates as a network. Because of this, an enhanced photo protective effect can be obtained by applying appropriate combinations of antioxidants. These combinations act synergistically. To find natural ingredients that are also effective has been a prime focus of our research.
You don’t have to cover yourself in toxic chemicals to protect yourself from the sun. Please enjoy using these toxic free sunscreens as much as we do in Africa, allowing us to embrace the goodness the sun has to offer.
