I would like to change this so that it will loop for every number found after SKU# until it reaches the end of the innertext.

Dim skuTag As String = "SKU #"
        Dim index As Integer = curElement.InnerText.ToUpper.IndexOf(skuTag)
        If index <> -1 Then

            Dim SKU As String = curElement.InnerText.Substring(index + skuTag.Length).Split(" ")(0)

        End If

Here's one way:
        Dim skuTag As String = "SKU #"
        Dim data As String = curElement.InnerText.ToUpper
        Dim spaceIndex As Integer
        Dim skuIndex As Integer = data.ToUpper.IndexOf(skuTag)
        While skuIndex <> -1
            spaceIndex = data.IndexOf(" ", skuIndex + skuTag.Length)
            If spaceIndex <> -1 Then

                Dim SKU As String = data.Substring(skuIndex + skuTag.Length, spaceIndex - (skuIndex + skuTag.Length))

                skuIndex = data.IndexOf(skuTag, spaceIndex)
            End If
        End While
