Skin is actually nourished under the protection of our non-nano zinc-oxide stick made from just 4 certified organic and mineral sunscreen ingredients.
Regardless of marketing messages, it’s the actual 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.
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).
Yes, some. When used properly, zinc oxide gives skin a visible whitish hue. We offer tinted versions to provide a more skin-colored hue.
Technically 3 years from purchase, but the useful life of our sunscreens has no practical limit, since our active ingredient zinc oxide is a mineral and does not lose its sunscreen capabilities over time, EVER. However, the FDA requires all sunscreen products to list a 3-year shelf life (mainly because petrochemical active ingredients in common sunscreens degrade quickly, even on the shelf). Regardless, if you ever feel a Waxhead product has spoiled, just let us know, and we'll send you a free replacement.
The answer depends on what areas you're covering. If face only, our sunscreen stick will deliver roughly 75-100 applications. If the entire body, about 20-30 applications.
Our prices represent a true cost to the world. We source our top-grade ingredients only from reputable, fair-trade, cruelty-free companies that are almost entirely US-based. We don’t purchase ingredients from countries with questionable labor or production practices. Learn more.
Waxhead products are designed using top-level biochemistry knowledge.
We use a complete holistic appreciation for how our formulations react with skin in the sun and how they affect our environment.
We pretty much cherish our customers. When they have questions about skincare, we give our full unbiased info and opinions.
In the rare instances when they have problems, we do all we can to make them happy.
New to clean sunscreen- Found waxhead and thought I’d give it a try. Love that I’m supporting a Momma.
I thought I’d have more of a problem with the white rubbing in but it’s actually perfect! The mix of oil to zinc is well thought out. My kids are used to a quick spray sunscreen and they didn’t give any complaints with the stick or the baby lotion taking a tad more time.
We got a little burnt the first time using it. It’s definitely an adjustment still seeing the white on your kids but needing to reapply. The second time was perfect. Definitely love the product and know my kids are getting the best.
Absolutely the best I've ever used. Doesn't get into my eyes when using under my eyes and on my nose. A perfect product!
I had knee surgery a couple of months ago, and the one thing that was stressed was to wear sunscreen on the scar for at least a year. I'm not an athletic person, but I go out to me garden daily, and since it's summer and California, I need to protect my knee. All I wanted was something to roll onto the area, without having to get messy from sprays or liquids. This product is perfect. I also use it on my grandson when he's over and we're going to be out "planting". This product is perfect for me.
I ride my bicycle 10+ hours a week in the Texas sun. This is the best protection I have found. I have had more than a dozen Basal cell spots removed, I have tried most every sunscreen available. Waxhead stays put for 3+ hours with profuse sweating, it doesn’t burn the skin or eyes like regular sunscreen does when sweating. Really like this stuff!
1. Protects you from the sun very well
2. Stays on, even while sweating
3. Smells nice
4. You won't look like you're auditioning as a vampire for the new twighlight movie. You will certainly look different tho - it's almost like a light foundation.
1. When I get wet, oh Lord, the cocoa moves around and i look darker in some areas than others in a really weird way haha. It's not much of a problem but keep a mirror around if you plan on sweating!
Thick and tough, our sunscreen takes a bit of effort to apply, but a little goes a long way, you can see exactly where you’re applying it, and once on, it delivers the safest, most effective, most eco-friendly sun defense available anywhere.
Slowly push up the product from the bottom of the tube, then apply sunscreen in small dots and stripes onto sections of the face and body. (Retract product back into stick container by smacking bottom against a hard surface.)
Once applied, spread into an even layer across your skin.
Further rub into a thinner coverage, leaving a slight whitish hue that will deliver complete coverage. Our sunscreens will not fully absorb into the skin like petrochemical sunscreens.
We are thoughtfully committed to health, sustainable practices, and the environment. We blend modern science and old school sense to design eco-friendly tools to help humans thrive in the sun without worrying about skin cancer or toxins. Choose Waxhead for your skin, your health, and your planet. The sunscreen you use matters and make no mistake, Waxhead is THE best choice you can make for healthy living in the sun.
Regardless of marketing messages, it’s the actual ingredients within a sunscreen formulation that matter. Waxhead ingredients are without equal, from top-grade non-nano zinc oxide to our roster of certified organic inactive ingredients.
Instead of just eliminating oxybenzone or octinoxate, Waxhead sunscreens don’t contain ANY petrochemicals, meaning they’re TRULY reef safe. In environmental terms, user-borne petrochemicals, many from products labeled as reef-safe (which is an unregulated term), account for an oil spill the size of the Exxon Valdez every three years.
Our 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.
We make our clothing from fabric of 100% recycled plastic fibers, without any added dyes. Our fair-trade production processes use 65% less energy and reduce greenhouse emissions by 35%.
Actually, we pretty much cherish them. When they have questions about sunscreen, whether we make it or not, we give them our full unbiased info and opinions. In the rare instances when they have problems or complaints concerning our products, we do all we can to make them happy.
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.
