Susan Ingram’s love for the African sun (where she lives) and her dual interests in health and the environment led her to research the benefits of natural and organic sunscreen products. She is focusing on sun protection because of her love of the outdoors and the fact that she lost both her brother and cousin to melanoma at a very early age.
Susan is working with five independent laboratories, three biochemists, and a research team to refine her sunscreen products and offer people the best advice and education about sun protection.
She and her team are manufacturing Sunumbra, free of chemical sunscreens using zinc oxide together with plant extracts. It offers protection against both UVA and UVB radiation. Previous lack of UVA protection in sunscreens has been highlighted in recent years as a primary cause of skin cancer.
