Matched to both human and marine bio-systems to deliver the world’s safest, most comprehensive, most eco-friendly defense against the sun’s UV rays.
It costs more, but you'll use it all season, and it delivers the safest, healthiest, most comprehensive UVA + UVB protection you can find.
Skin is actually nourished under the protection of our Zinc Oxide Sunscreens made with 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 sunscreen 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.
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 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.
Love my new products from Waxhead! They arrived quickly, and the sunscreen is great quality and long-lasting. I feel better about my family being in the sun protected by Waxhead sunscreen.
This was a great way to try out some of the other variations of waxhead. I've been a happy user of their larger push up sticks and wanted to sample some of the liquid and small tins. Great stuff!
It is a nice, portable sample kit for my purse and I like that it is a good way to try out which sunscreen you like to use more whether it is the white or the tinted on. I also really enjoy the chapstick. I do prefer the tinted sunscreen just by the way.
Before purchasing the sampler I first spent several days researching sunscreens and what went into them. I decided to try this product because it has the fewest ingredients and those ingredients are not harmful to the environment or people.
The tins are a great choice for keeping in my purse so I can apply to the backs of my hands when driving.
I like the vitamin D for all over because it is easier to apply. This product is very hydrophobic (water resistant) and does its job with keeping you from getting burned.
The lip balm is very moisturizing and the mint is soothing.
Overall I really liked this sampler because it gave me an opportunity to figure which product I wanted in full size. I hope you try it too. I'm glad I did.
Waxhead ingredients are without equal, from top-grade non-nano zinc oxide to our collection of certified organic, edible-grade inactive ingredients. We combine modern holistic science and ancient ingredients used for thousands of years. They deliver the safest, most effective, most eco-friendly sun defense available, without any petrochemicals or other questionable additives.
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. For the tins, rub your fingertips around the sunscreen in the tin. The warmth of your body will warm up the sunscreen and make it easier to apply.
Put sunscreen onto fingertips and apply it in small dots on sections of the body.
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.
