Ingredients used effectively for thousands of years
Waxhead uses modern holistic science and traditional ingredients to restore human’s healthy relationship with the sun. We use only superior quality, minimally processed ingredients. Our sunscreens contain only non-nano, uncoated, French process Zinc Oxide, 100% certified organic edible-grade inactive ingredients, and absolutely NO petrochemicals. Our zinc oxide formulas deliver the most effective protection across the entire UVA/UVB spectrum.
4 Total Ingredients
1. 25% Non-Nano Zinc Oxide
2. Organic Coconut Oil
3. Organic Beeswax
4. Organic Vanilla Extract
1. 25% NON-NANO ZINC OXIDE
Zinc oxide absorbs UV energy via bandgap absorption and reflects and scatters in the visible spectrum, preventing skin penetration and cell damage. The broadest spectrum UVA/UVB reflector that’s FDA-approved for sunscreen use, zinc oxide is also the only FDA-approved active ingredient for use on children under 6 months of age. Zinc oxide holds tight to its electrons when it absorbs UV energy, limiting the creation of free radicals that cause oxidative damage and increase the risk of skin cancer. We use non-nano, uncoated, French process Zinc Oxide as our sole active sunscreen ingredient, and all our sunscreens contain 25% - the most of any brand.
2. ORGANIC EXTRA VIRGIN COCONUT OIL
Coconut oil has been a skin softener for 1000s of years. Our certified organic extra virgin coconut oil is extracted from the meat of the coconut and is fairly traded and less processed than refined coconut oil. Due to its high content of saturated fatty acids, coconut oil is an excellent skin moisturizer, providing the necessary hydration to keep skin nourished and help repair damaged skin cells.
3. ORGANIC BEESWAX
Beeswax is a top moisturizer that protects and repairs rough, dry, or chapped skin by locking in moisture. Beeswax has emollient properties, softening and rehydrating skin while aiding cellular reconstruction. It is also non-comedogenic: it won’t clog pores. Plus, it has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, effectively treating acne. We use only non-GMO, certified organic beeswax in our skincare products.
4. ORGANIC VANILLA EXTRACT
Vanilla beans are picked when their green tips turn yellow, then cured to produce their characteristic rich color, flavor, and aroma. Our certified organic vanilla extract is a good source of B vitamins and rich in antioxidants, and its antibacterial properties make it beneficial for treating acne. The smell of vanilla enhances brain activity and induces calmness directly.
Sunscreen Stick FAQs
Will this sunscreen make my skin white?
Yes, some. When used properly, zinc oxide gives skin a visible whitish hue. However, this visualizes where the sunscreen is applied, providing peace of mind that you're adequately protected. We offer tinted versions to provide a more skin-colored hue.
Is this Sunscreen Stick only for athletes, or can anyone use it?
This sunscreen is perfect for athletes and anyone who loves spending time outdoors. Whether engaging in sports, gardening, fishing, or simply enjoying nature, Sport Sunscreen Stick offers exceptional protection for everyone.
When will this sunscreen expire?
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.
How many applications does this product contain?
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.
Is this sunscreen suitable for sensitive skin?
Absolutely! The Sport Sunscreen Stick is exceptionally gentle on sensitive skin. Its hypoallergenic formula minimizes the risk of irritation, making it an ideal choice for individuals with delicate skin.
Can I use this Sunscreen Stick if I have oily skin?

Is this sunscreen safe for the environment?
Yes! This Sport Sunscreen Stick is coral reef-safe and biodegradable. By choosing our sunscreen, you're making an eco-friendly choice that helps protect marine life and ecosystems.
Will this Sunscreen Stick run into my eyes when I sweat?

Why does Waxhead cost more than other sunscreens?
Our prices represent a true cost to the world. We source our top-grade ingredients only from reputable, fair-trade, cruelty-free, almost entirely US-based companies.

How to apply Waxhead Sport Sunscreen Stick
Thick and tough, our sunscreen takes some 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.
Push it slowly up from the bottom. If you push the stick too far out, tap the container bottom firmly against a hard surface. Sunscreen will slide down back into the tub. Use the stick to directly dot sunscreen onto the skin (this will help warm up sunscreen, too), then spread and rub into the skin.
Step 1: Press and dot sunscreen onto the skin in sections
Slowly push up the product from the bottom of the tube, then press sunscreen in small dots and stripes onto sections of the face and body. (Return the product to the stick container by smacking the bottom against a hard surface.)
Step 2: Spread out over one area at a time
Once applied, spread into an even layer across your skin.
Step 3: Rub in to reduce whiteness
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.
I like this sunscreen because of how safe and simple it is. I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin and am prone to eczema if I use anything at all weird. This sunscreen doesn't upset my skin, so that's a big plus. However I'm a little disappointed in the functionality/ease of use for this sunscreen stick. It comes of the stick kind of clumpy and thick so you have to spread it a little bit by hand and if you rub it in too much, it doesn't work very well. I learned that the hard way and got a little burnt through the sunscreen the first two times I used it. Even though I re-applied as directed. Also that being said, in order to apply a thick enough layer you have to use a lot, making me think this stick won't last me the whole summer, and with how much it costs that's kind of a bummer. It's also very hard to completely wash off at the end of the day. Especially washing it off your hands after applying. But I find that to be a very minor bother because it's not gross and sticky like some other sunscreens. So I'll continue to use this along with sun protective clothing as a back up because I really value how safe it is for my skin and the environment.
Provides great protection from the son.
Tried so many sunscreens for outdoors, and I just sweat them all off in minutes. Waxhead is the only one that can hold up under hot and humid conditions when I'm riding my horse , yard work, or other activities outside. At this point, I have embraced the minimal white cast it leaves on my skin and wear it proudly! Of course, it's a little heavy duty, so I don't use it for everyday, like going to the office ,shopping etc. Bonus, it does keep my skin very smooth and hydrated all day, even after i shower it off. Also like that it's eco friendly , mineral non nano.
We LOVE the SPORT SUNSCREEN STICK! This is my third summer using it. My whole family uses it. Is it thick? Yes, but if it’s not thick than I’m not interested. Does it stay on? Yes, but if I’m not using a makeup pad remover to take my sunscreen off at the end of the day than I’m not interested in the product. Does it smell good? Yes- it’s a very subtle vanilla/coconut to give you a hint of summer. Does it sting if you get it in your eyes? No- The product does not bleed and stays put so it does not get into your eyes. I recently read an article that WAX HEAD STICK is on the “approved list” due to its ingredients. This made me even more happy. The stick resembles an ice cream pop and is easy to use since the stick part is nice and wide. The stick is expensive but it lasts me all summer. If it gets dirty, than I just scoop the top off. I was really surprised when I called waxhead recently because I was interested in pursuing another waxhead product and their customer service department not only emailed me back immediately but also offered to talk to me on the phone. What a super cool company!
Just what I needed, smells great too.
Customer service, for a minor issue, was tremendous!
Great product, great company.
