Did you know that some resorts in Mauritius have banned chemical sunscreens because it is killing the marine life in the surrounding water? It makes sense then that these chemicals are not great for human skin either.

A good enough reason to switch to organic

The problem many people have with organic products is that they are expensive. But smearing chemicals into the skin of your precious children, and causing possible increased cancer risks, is just not worth it.

The good news: now there’s a natural, organic sunscreen on the market that doesn’t cost the earth

Sunumbra is a range of chemical free sunscreens using plant extracts

It’s made from a blend of organic plant extracts and zinc oxide, so it contains no harsh chemicals and is ideal for sensitive skin

There’s a children’s product too

Sunumbra sun kids is a sunscreen specially formulated for children and sensitive skins.

It’s water resistant for 40 minutes, so your children are protected in the water.

My daughter loves it as there’s no perfume to irritate her eyes when she puts her head under the water, and it goes on easily without rubbing into skin for ages when she’s impatient to get out into the sun.
