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.
This sunscreen is called our 'Classic' sunscreen as it was our very first sunscreen, created after the delightful discovery of unique plant extracts, which we believe to be our key 'hidden secret', substituting harmful chemical filters still found in so many sunscreens sold today.
The paragraph above spells out what makes our sunscreen formula truly unique and has led the way for all of our subsequent product formulas
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...
