      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!

      Shirts from recycled water bottles!

      Waxhead is a super awesome, family owned company based in Florida that makes sun-protective shirts from recycled water bottles and reef-safe sunscreen in metal tins!

      Very pleased with my purchase

      I’m out in the sun a lot at my barn and wanted a shirt that wasn’t polo styled as most riding sun shirts are. This shirt has done the trick ! And to know it helped remove plastic bottles from sitting in trash makes it better.

      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.








      Women Sun Shirt

      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.

      Ingredients matter.

      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.

      Waxhead far exceeds ingredient ban standards.

      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.

      Waxhead products nourish skin.

      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.

      Our eco-friendly apparel.

      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%.

      We take care of our customers.

      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.

      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.
