Skin is actually nourished under the protection of our tinted facial sunscreen made from just 9 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).
We've added natural iron oxide to conceal the typically white appearance of zinc oxide. When used properly, zinc oxide sunscreen gives skin a visible 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.
Waxhead uses absolutely NO animal testing. We test our sunscreens on willing humans using federally mandated FDA sunscreen testing protocol in order to accurately calculate our products’ SPFs for labeling. Our tinted facial sunscreens are also vegan.
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.
The Tinted 30+ has a great color for my olive complexion. But I don’t like that it’s in the tube, so maybe they add more oil in it. Makes my face very shiny. The other Tinted 30 that is in the stick form I’m NOT shiny, but the color is too light. So for now I’m mixing the two together.
Love it for both my face and body. The light is too light and the dark too dark, so I blend a little of both before applying.
Really liked the way this product went on. Easily covered and absorbed into the skin without a lot of rubbing. Provided great protection all week while I was at the beach in vacation.
I bought the tinted sunscreen 2 weeks ago and I love it. It feels light on my face it's easy to apply. I look as if I have a natural tan . I will definitely keep this as my makeup. It's better for my skin than makeup. Thanks Waxhead Sun Defense.
I use the baby sunscreen from Waxhead with Vit D and I use this tinted sunscreen to warm up my complexion afterwards. I like the vit D in the baby sunscreen and just wanted to add some color here and there. This is perfect for me. It works well for those “no makeup” type days - which is every day for the most part for me. I use it to add color to my chest also. I realise it can transfer to clothing so I’m careful where I apply it. Great product. Thinking of getting a spare. I just follow the directions and knead the tube and shake it to be sure it is mixed well before I use it. I love this brand. The customer service is the best around and the product is wonderful.
Thick and tough, our sunscreen takes a little effort to apply. A little goes a long way and you can see exactly where you’re applying it.
Our sunscreens lack chemicals to keep ingredients homogenized, so a bit of water may squirt from tube varieties before the thicker cream appears. This is totally OK, and there’s nothing wrong with your sunscreen. Just close the lid and kneed the tube, which should reduce (but not totally prevent) any water separation.
Put sunscreen onto fingertips and apply it in small dots on sections of the face.
Once a section is dotted, continue to spread and thin out into an almost invisible layer across your skin.
After you’ve spread out the sunscreen, you can further rub in the cream to a thinner coverage and basically eliminating the white color on your skin. It takes a few more seconds, but you can achieve complete coverage without any white residue. Our sunscreen will not fully absorb into skin like chemical sunscreens, even though after rubbing it can appear transparent.
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.
