Protect Your Skin the Right Way: Why Physical Sunscreen is a Game Changer

When it comes to skincare, we're all in pursuit of that perfect glow. But let's face it, the sun, though beneficial to us any many ways, isn't the perfect friend. Harmful UV rays can wreak havoc on our skin, causing wrinkles, fine lines, and worse, skin cancer.

So what's the solution? Sunscreen, of course! But not all sunscreens are created equal. Let's talk about why physical sunscreen is the holy grail of sun protection.

What is Physical Sunscreen?

First off, what is physical sunscreen, you may ask? It's a type of sunscreen that sits on top of your skin and reflects the sun's harmful UV rays. Unlike chemical sunscreens, physical sunscreen active ingredients don't penetrate your skin, which makes them a safer choice for those with sensitive skin.

Non-Nano Zinc Oxide

Now, let's get to the nitty-gritty. As a founder of Waxhead, I'm here to tell you that not all physical sunscreens are created equal. Waxhead's physical sunscreen is made with the highest edible grade (and crucially) non-nano zinc oxide, which means the particles are too big to penetrate skin, and just as importantly, too big to interact with marine habitats.

This makes it a much safer choice than other sunscreens on the market that use nano-sized particles, and certainly safer than petrochemical based sunscreens.

Physical Sunscreen Works

But enough about the science, let's talk about the real reason you need to start using physical sunscreen: it works! Not only does it protect your skin from harmful UV rays, it also helps prevent premature aging. And nobody wants to look older than they actually are.

Plus, many of Waxhead's physical sunscreens are water-resistant for up to 80 minutes, so you can enjoy all your favorite water activities without worrying about your sunscreen washing off.


I know what you're thinking. “Won't physical sunscreen leave me looking like a ghost?" I get it, nobody wants to look like Casper. But Waxhead's tinted physical sunscreen is designed to blend better with skin tones, leaving no white cast behind. It's the right choice for those who want to protect their skin without sacrificing style.

Planet Earth

And let's not forget about the environment. Waxhead's physical sunscreen is eco-friendly and reef-safe, so you can protect your skin while also protecting our planet's precious coral reefs. Win-win, right?


In conclusion, physical sunscreen is the way to go if you want to protect your skin the right way. And if you're looking for the best physical sunscreen on the market, look no further than Waxhead Sunscreen.

With its edible grade non-nano zinc oxide formulas, seamless blendability, and eco-friendly qualities, it's the perfect choice for any skin type. So what are you waiting for? Protect your skin and start glowing today!
