      Sun protection that’s cool in the heat!

      I have 2 long sleeved women’s sun shirts, a medium and a large. Both fit well, but I went with the large for my second purchase as the medium has a tendency to bunch up when I bend over, exposing my low back to the sun. I called and spoke to Shannon, who kindly sent me the measurements of both sizes to help with my decision. The shirts wash well, are cool in the summer sun, and are doing their job.

      Wonderful Customer Service!

      I have big ol' elbow bones, so if a shirt sleeve isn't like, perfectly cut, they won't fit. The bottle shirt is one of those that appears to taper a bit as you move toward the cuff. I sent in a replace request and it was quick (on their end, it took me ages to get to the post office; sorry lol) and easy! The next size up shirt fit perfectly. Regardless of size, the fabric is pleasing to the touch, is a nice, relaxed fit otherwise, and has, so far, been wicking moisture well enough to keep up with the Central Florida humidity. Would definitely recommend!

      Sizes very small

      Love the company ethos and that it’s from recycled materials but I ordered a size bigger than I usually would and it was still too small so I gave it to a friend.

      Amazing service

      This is a great shirt! I ordered it and thought it had a misprint because the logo was on the back. Shannon was fantastic. She explained that's how they make them but if I didn't like it or needed a different size they would take care of it with a refund or exchange. The exchange of size was effortless on my part. (The ladies shirt is fitted, you may want to size up) I am so impressed with the amazing customer service. They are fantastic and the products they sell are as well! Thank you so much! I look forward to purchasing more in the future with confidence that, not only will I get a great product, but super customer service!

      Women’s Sun Shirt

      Manufacturing Process

      To produce our sun shirts, we work with partners in Haiti and Guatemala, supplying 100% recycled fabric to co-ops there that create sustainable jobs and full-living wages for hundreds of workers in developing countries.

      Their teams use our materials to construct shirts worn proudly by our customers. The Guatemalan facility is also powered by biomass that consists of wood chips, coffee extract, and other raw materials. The wood chips are collected from the local forestry industry using sustainable practices.

      Skincare ingredients matter.

      Regardless of marketing messages, it’s the actual sunscreen ingredients that matter. We use only superior quality ingredients.

      Our products are FDA-approved and contain certified organic, edible-grade inactive ingredients. See the roster of all our ingredients.

       

      Waxhead Sunscreen is TRULY reef safe.

      Instead of just eliminating oxybenzone or octinoxate, Waxhead sunscreens don’t contain ANY petrochemicals. Instead we use non-nano zinc oxide as our sole active ingredient.

      This means all our products are truly reef safe, completely safe for marine systems, lakes, reefs and fish (and humans).

       

      Waxhead products nourish skin.

      Our skincare products don’t just avoid harming skin. They actively nourish it, with certified organic ingredients like extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, and jojoba oil, natural vitamin E and vitamin D, shea butter, and beeswax. After a day of wearing Waxhead in the sun, your skin actually feels good.

      Buy Waxhead, protect our coasts.

      Besides making human-friendly, eco-friendly products, we give a portion of our profits and our time to support well-run coastal and oceanic conservation and cleanup organizations. We consider this vital to help preserve fun sunny days for generations to come.
