You can protect your whole family from the sun’s harmful rays with this fabulous natural sunscreen. 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. Sunumbra’s excellent SPF30 formula also provides full-spectrum UVA & UVB protection, plus it’s water resistant for up to 40 minutes. The perfect addition to your beach bag!

Our strict ingredient policy means that you can always shop according to your values. Every item on FtN is checked to be better for the environment, socially responsible, good for you and free from toxic ingredients.
  • 5 star rating (UVA) – protects against skin ageing.
  • SPF30+ (UVB) – protects against sunburn.
  • 40-minute water resistance

Each ingredient used in Sunumbra’s SPF30 mineral sunscreen has a clear benefit for the health of your skin:

  • Zinc oxide is a natural mineral sun protector.
  • Wild kigelia extract is an active ingredient that is rich in antioxidants.
  • Aloe forex is a soothing gel that replenishes your skin’s moisture.
  • Green rooibos tea fights free radical damage.
  • Cape chamomile soothes irritated skin.
  • Eco-friendly; dermatologically tested on humans only, not on animals.


  • Apply Sunumbra SPF30 15 minutes before you expose yourself to the sun so it has time to soak into your skin and provide the maximum benefit. Knead the tube well before use.
  • Apply liberally to all exposed areas, taking extra care to cover frequently forgotten spots like your lips, back of your neck, ears, nose, tops of your feet and along your hairline.
  • Re-apply at least every 2 hours and after towel-drying, swimming, or sweating.

Please Note: You should apply sunscreen every day, even in cloudy weather.

*100% natural certification
**Eco-certified organic
***Wild sourced

Please Note: Sunumbra P has optimised their formulation. The fundamentals of the formula have not changed, only ever using 100% natural ingredients – Zinc Oxide and botanicals. The key change is a modified emulsification system, resulting in a much more stable cream without any separation.

It’s a great sunblock for protection. However if you’re brown skinned like me, you'll get a grey cast

Great Product

It is difficult to find a decent natural sunscreen that works to protect while not leaving one looking like a ghost. This sunscreen does the trick. It protects from the harmful rays and leaves one looking healthy due to the light tint. The only thing that made me subtract a star is the fact that it is rather greasy.

I love
08/06/2020, By Megan
Definitely works, nice protection; but can we quite difficult to rub in as it becomes tacky.
20/04/2020, By Lorraine
Wonderful product, non-greasy. I use it during outdoor sports as well as as under my foundation. Lightly tinted, it blends in well with make up and adds an extra layer of cover! Love it!
26/01/2020, By Jessica
its a great suncream for sensitive skins. I love the light feeling on my face.
19/01/2020, By Aid
Good one
19/12/2019, By Ell
Good product, kept me from getting burnt.
06/06/2019, By Sara
Pleasantly surprised by this sunscreen. It smells lovely, doesn’t leave any oily residue and it doesn’t leave me with a weird purpleish layer like some other organic sunscreens do. Only thing i can fault (if I’m really looking) is the slight dull colour the cream leaves on the skin after application.
11/05/2019, By Jordana
I love this sunblock. It works well and it lathers nicely. It smells great too. I love that it is free of nasty chemicals. It can sometimes stain clothes though so be careful of that.
24/02/2019, By MariaP
The second sunscreen I've tried from FtN, and a lovely product. Smells gorgeous, goes on smoothly (I do shake the tube well, as another reviewer suggested). Definitely recommend!
13/11/2018, By Lena
Works very well
31/10/2018, By Monique
Excellent sunscreen for the whole family. Once you rub it into your skin properly, it blends well with your skin and offers effective sun protection for a really long time! The family-sized bottle is better value for money than this smaller sized bottle.
20/05/2018, By Green Girl
Baie baie swak produk. Ons was by die water, en vriende het gewone sonskerm aangesmeer. Ek het myself en my kinders met hierdie Sunumbra gesmeer, en ons het verbrand! Dit werk glad nie. Ek het 'n buis vir die kar, huis en doeksak gekoop. What a waste. Iemand kan myne verniet kom haal.
24/03/2018, By Nicky
Due to the mixed reviews, i wasn't expecting to be this satisfied! I find that it is easy to apply and works well. It has a nice scent - much better than commercial sunscreens. Its a small tube, but it spreads well so its lasting longer than i expected. Will purchase again.
14/03/2018, By Nadine
Love this product! It has become part of my daily beauty routine.
07/02/2018, By Janine
The first 2 tubes I bought worked well but this summer this sunscreen failed terribly. I realised that it works well if you're just spending 2hrs at the beach but if you're there for the day it doesn't work. A few of us burnt and peeled terribly even though we reapplied. So back to chemical sunscreen I go which I'm not happy about.
19/01/2018, By carol
bit greasy but an acceptable alternative to commercial sunscreens. Not crazy about the colour n the product, can rub off n fabrics.
11/01/2018, By KA
Love the idea of this, but not a great product.
Very hard to apply, left a greasy layer and white tint.
Smell is also pretty terrible!
09/10/2017, By Janine
Just used this over a long weekend at rocking the daisies and I didn't get sun-burnt at all. Just make sure that you shake well and press your fingers a couple of times up and down the tube. Came out creamy and not oily at all and actually used to much, needed much less.
02/10/2017, By J
I found this sun cream too greasy and does not apply well to the skin. Also not a fan of the smell.
31/08/2017, By Anel
I agree with Marcelo in the precious review, I love the idea, but not super crazy about the product. Very thick and difficult to apply (so you end up using a LOT) and it is very expensive for such a small tube
17/07/2017, By Monique
Natural and effective but greasy and tinted.
07/01/2017, By Marcelo
The lotion is very thick, very hard to apply, I totally dislike the consistency of this sunscreen, the manufacturer should consider making it more liquidy.

It also gave me pimples, its too thick and oily, meaning, the skin can breath. It clogs my pores. I went back to my chemically sunscreen (Pin Buzz), for the worst it is, at least doesn give me pimples.
11/12/2016, By Clair
I did not like this product. It was very thick and very difficult to apply and the tint was too pale. After a while it separated in the tube so that when I wanted to squeeze some out I got liquid, then solid lumps. I threw it away and will not buy again.
12/07/2016, By Marna
This is my first time using a natural sunscreen and Im very happy with Sunumbra. It is not oily at all and my face still have the matte look, which I prefer, after application.I even apply my day cream over it. It is easy to apply and leaves no residue. I will definitely continue to use this product.
21/04/2016, By Yaksha
My kids love using it everyday ... So that battle is won and its safe for them. I invested in the famil size and that is also good .
10/02/2016, By Janine
Comes out easily from tube, no horrible white smear on the skin and has a natural earthy smell. Has protected me very well during swimming, hiking and walks. However I did burn once this summer as I didn reapply around 2hrs later when I went for another walk on the beach. I will definitely try the sports version next summer.
01/02/2016, By Leigh
I love this sunblock for my face and I especially love that it is slightly tinted! Its nice and thick. The oil sometimes separate so you have to give it a really thorough shake but its not a problem. The only thing I noticed is that the tint may not be ideal for darker skins - my daughters friend used it one day and it made her skin look ashen. We
e very fair so it works for us but Im not sure Id recommend it for darker complexions.
18/12/2015, By Lyn
Bought this because the reviews were good, but not happy. Thick, pasty and really difficult to apply, especially to busy toddlers.
11/11/2015, By Tamara
Itss very thick and our tube has a few gritty bits in it, but Sunumbra is very effective. It also lasts better in the sun than many other natural sunscreens weve tried, which sweat off easily.
27/10/2015, By Adele
This is a very effective sunscreen, that is also a great skin treat. Instantly adds a lovely glow to your skin, and long term use has certainly improved my skins appearance. And no more worries about additional sun damage. I have a skin that burns very easily, but as long as I apply my Sunumbra SPF30, NO BURN!
22/10/2015, By Natalie C
I do like the product but the only problem is the smell. Yes the smell fades but you have to get past the 1st few minutes. My kids refuse to use it because of the smell.
Other that that its a great working product I will continue to use it!
19/10/2015, By Colleen
I really do like this, it is very thick, so takes a bit of getting used to, but it smells divine and seemed to stay on for a long time!
03/10/2015, By Elizabeth
I suffer from Rosacea, and sit with a catch-22 situation in that I need to apply sunscreen before my make-up, as sun exposure is a trigger to my condition. But the chemicals contained in usual sun-screen lotions are also triggers to my skin condition! This product is an absolute life-saver! I have been applying it with no adverse reaction whatsoever, in fact - my skin looks healthier. The best sunscreen product on the market in my opinion.
02/10/2015, By Karien
This product left my skin red and irritated after a few weeks use - definitely not a keeper for me.
22/04/2015, By Gaby
I have very sensitive skin that is irritated easily. This was gentle on the skin but effective, not something one finds often.
20/04/2015, By Kate
This product is incredible. I have acne-prone skin thats very sensitive to the sun. This is the only sunblock Ive ever used on my face thats truly effective and doesn make me break out. There are actually 2 acne remedies included in the ingredients (aloe and zinc).

Its tinted, so its a great BB cream replacement (and doesn skimp on the SPF). Its the colour thats usually labelled
ude or
atural, but theres definitely a few shades wiggle room - Id expect it to work for any caucasian or coloured person, but it might look weird on indian or black skin.

*I only use it on my face because of the price.
*I find its better to apply it over freshly moisturised skin.
*It looks oily as first, but does absorb after a while (I usually wait 10 mins then apply some translucent powder).
*If you
e using it as a BB cream and aren expecting to see too much sun, it looks better when applied with a makeup sponge - this provides a thinner appliction, so it won protect your skin as well.
21/03/2015, By Lizel
This sunscreen is my lifesaver! I have tried every sunscreen available in the store/pharmacy from the cheapest to most expensive and each time I get rashes/allergy that takes 2 weeks to clear up. I even tried the sunscreen for kids to no avail.

I tested Sunumbra in my skin away from the sun, in the sun, in the water... No rashes, no itching, no allergy. I am now going to buy the daily SPF 15 to add to my daily skin routine. Thank you Sunumbra. I will endorsing you to my clients.
25/11/2014, By Teev
I have very sensitive skin and I love this sunscreen, of all the natural ones this is my favourite. It rubs in, feels fine, and smells nice and natural. I use it on my kids and it works really well, not sticky at the beach either so the kids don get sand stuck to their skin.
19/11/2014, By Giuliana
We have been using Sunumbra right from when it was launched. Unlike other natural lotions, thanks to the tint no issues with white streaks. My kids also use it on their face. Definitely a firm favourite (admittedly I am still using my last tinted Eco face lotion but won have a problem also using Sunumbra on my face after that).
27/10/2014, By Jo
I was a bit sceptical about buying this because of the smelly reviews. Either the formula has changed or else its really not so bad as the smell didn bother me at all and whatever smell there was disappeared on application anyway. I used it for the first time on a scorching day at the beach and I know exactly where I applied the sunscreen, because the few spots I missed were burnt red, while the rest of me was perfectly protected. I have a very light, sensitive skin and I can really recommend it!
16/10/2014, By Caroline
I love the tint. I love that it is greasy as it applies so easily. I love that it absorbs so well. I love that it is natural and wont harm me. Whats not to like - whole family love this wonderful product.
22/09/2014, By Mehrunnissa
Read an article which explored the dangers of regular sunscreen, hence I sought a natural alternative. Its a good product in that it is absorbed easily and it doesn leave any horrible residue. My only gripe is that the smell is really awful and so puts me off from wanting to use it regularly.
26/05/2014, By Struan
I used the sunscreen yesterday on a 2 and a half hour MTB ride in really hot dusty conditions and I was very happy with it.
04/03/2014, By Lucky
At first it seems like this product would leave you oily, but it sinks in fast, and the slight pigment means I don have to wear make up - maybe some powder. I am SO pleased and relieved to find such an effective natural sunscreen, packed with lovely nourishing plant extracts - even for my sensitive breakout-prone skin. Some find the smell a bit strange, but I like the chamomile in it, and the smell goes away fast in any case. I use this every single day and Im on my second tube. I recommend it to everyone.
02/01/2014, By Drake
I have super sensitive and fair skin and this sunscreen is by far the best I have ever used. Its initial consistency and smell is quite deceiving as it it absorbs easily and becomes odourless after a few minutes. I love that it does not leave me looking like a glossy grease-ball at the end of the day. I apply it on my face everyday (and on any other exposed areas) and have not had any adverse skin reactions. Highly recommend it!
06/12/2013, By Karen
I was very hesitant to try this sunscreen as I have oily skin and a lot of people mentioned that it was greasy. I was very impressed, it did feel greasy whilst I applied it, but it absorbed quickly and my skin looked matte for the whole day. It also didn feel like I was wearing sunscreen, with most others I could feel the layer. I use the Victorian Garden moisturiser for oily skin, and the combination works really well.

I am really glad that I decided to try this sunscreen.
27/11/2013, By Kelly
Although this sunscreen works fine and does not irritate my skin, there is an unpleasant fishy smell. Ive used it twice and find the smell really hard to bear, not sure whether my tube is expired/defective or if the smell is standard.
12/08/2013, By Kate
Best sunscreen I have ever used! Spreads easily, works amazingly and my skin loves it! :)
20/11/2011, By Su-Ann
I am very happy with this sunscreen. I have oily problematic skin, but it does not cause me any blocked pores. No white paint effect - wonderful!
02/10/2011, By Roshen
My children have terrible allergies and their skins have flared up every time that I have ever used any sunscreen in the past. I was quite desperate when I googled sunscreen for sensitive skins. I eventually landed up on your website and came across the Sunumbra SPF30 Sunscreen. I have to admit that I was slightly apprehensive because of the price, but out of desperation, knowing that we were headed for the coast for the holidays and knowing that my children are true water babies, I took two tubes…
It was worth every single cent that I paid. I applied tons of the stuff onto my three children’s skins, constantly, every single day except for New Years day which was raining and we spent the entire day indoors… and I still have about half of the second tube left.
What an amazing product! Not only did it protect my children from the damage caused by the sun, but it moisturized and nourished their skins. We usually return from our holidays with our children looking terrible. I looked at my son’s face just last night and marveled at the healthy glow of his tanned cheeks.
12/08/2011, By Tracy
I initially bought this product to use on my face, but it is very oily and although it eventually is absorbed by the skin, I wouldn't recommend it for people with oily/combination skins.
21/07/2011, By ANEESA
fabulous product. looks oily immed after application, but absorbs super quick with no white residue. a quick dusting of loose face powder and you are good to go!
05/06/2011, By Lisa
At first I thought it would be greasy but my skin absorbed it quickly. It has a slight pigment so you don't get that white coating effect that you get from other sunscreens. I love this product!
27/05/2011, By Karen
What a great product. It is easily absorbed and doesn't have that awful white or yellow layer on your skin that rubs off on everything. Fabulous!
21/04/2011, By Busisiwe
The sunscreen does not have a white residue and while it goes on greasy it absorbs relatively quickly. My only warning would be for those with hyperpigmentation. The sunscreen seems to exacerbate the problem. I had overcome my hyperpigmentation problem before using the sunscreen, but noticed that after using the product some of the pigmentation had reappeared, I have returned to using my usual sunscreen and hopefully my skin will return to normal.
16/03/2011, By Masadi
I use it on my body - would be too oily for the face. Spreads easily,no white residue and my skin feels very soft. The only downside is the smell, but it fades after a few minutes. Value for money.
