FAQs


Will this sunscreen make my skin white?

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.


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.


Is this sunscreen tested on animals? Is it Vegan?

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.


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 companies that are almost entirely US-based. We don’t purchase ingredients from countries with questionable labor or production practices. Learn more.

Tint looks great on- not a spec of sun came thru!

I used the tinted sun protection lotion out of the little bottle on my face and neck. I’m fair skinned and it covered my skin nicely with a sort of tanned Matt pancake look but I put it on thick. I covered my neck too. Then I went out in the hot hot Texas sun for about 4 -5 hours. I wore a visor for half the time but sweated it off after two. After I took my shower and washed my face I could not even feel like the sun had touched my face!!! No color change! No tightness! Unbelievable!!! I think it’s incredible!!! I’m passing it out to everyone in my family and my friends too! I’m going to need a bigger bottle of it though!!

Best sunscreen I have ever used

I have used at least three tubes of this sunscreen and cannot recommend it enough. First of all, it is mineral based, reef safe, cruelty free, fragrance free, comes in tinted formula, with all organic and mineral ingredients, which I have to have in my sunscreens. I especially need mineral sunscreen on my face and neck for my super sensitive skin. I looked high and low for all these attributes and could not find one that had everything I wanted and also looked good on my face. Waxhead does! The light/medium tint looks great on my fair but olive toned skin (not too pink or orange), and I use it every day in place of foundation. I also use various serums as part of my skincare routine in the morning before I put my sunscreen on, and the Waxhead plays well layered over the serums without the "'pilling" that I have experienced with some brands. Also, they use iron oxides as part of the tint, which are natural and provide extra protection, according to what I have read, against the blue light emitted by the screens of our devices. I do not mind having to shake it due to the natural emulsifiers! Great customer service as well - this company truly believes in what they do, cares about their customers, and makes a great sunscreen! (I am trying to give the maximum number of stars but it seems like the website may be glitching, so in case it isn't showing, I give a 5+ star rating!

Love everything about this sunscreen

I am always on the lookout for a sunscreen that fits my requirements, especially for my face, and I am very picky. I am always on the lookout for mineral, reef safe, cruelty free sunscreens, fragrance free, and with as many organic ingredients as possible. Also, I like tinted because the iron oxides used for the tint add to the protection. Also, of course, the tint needs to look natural and not orange or chalky as some tinted sunscreens do. I have used up several tubes of the tinted sunscreen, light/medium tint, spf 31. It is the best sunscreen I have found so far for my face, espe.cially. The formula spreads well and blends well on my fair skin with olive undertones. I use it in place of my foundation as well as for spf. It layers well with my serums and does not do the "pilling" thing that some of the sunscreens I've tried have done. I wear sunscreen every day and so I have used it in every situation, both when I am outside in direct sunlight, and during my workday, during which I sit by a window, so spf is again important! Also the greatest customer service - the latest tube I received seemed a little thinner in consistency (maybe since I ordered through Amazon I received product that was old by mistake) but Shannon, whom I spoke with, was very patient in answering all my questions, and even sent me a new tube free! Later when I looked at their website I realized I was speaking with one of the owners of the company! Love that this is a small family business who really cares about their customers. I believe in supporting small business such as this. I cannot recommend them highly enough and would give them more stars if I could!!

Are Waxhead sunscreens safe for the environment, reefs, and fish?

Absolutely. Our products are biodegradable and contain none of the petrochemicals known to have feminizing effects on fish, coral toxicity, or bio-accumulation issues. Most brands that claim to be reef safe are absolutely NOT safe for reefs or any marine life since they contain several petrochemicals, just not the few currently banned.

 

Does this Tinted Sunscreen stain?

Yes, our tinted sunscreens can stain clothing. We use natural iron oxide as a tint in this sunscreen. These stains should be able to be removed with standard laundry options. For more details, see here.

 

Are Waxhead sunscreens water-resistant?

Waxhead sunscreens are all water-resistant. Our sport stick and field tin formulations are rated via FDA protocols for up to 80 minutes, the highest legally allowed, and our other sunscreens are designed to be as water-resistant. We will not market such ratings until we have official testing results.

 

Does Waxhead zinc oxide contain nanoparticles?

No, we do not use nano or micronized zinc oxide. We only use non-nano zinc oxide, and the particles will not enter your bloodstream or interfere with fragile marine environments (because the particles are too big).

 

Are Waxhead sunscreens safe for children?

Yes, all our sunscreens are safe for children and babies. Zinc oxide is the ONLY active ingredient FDA approved as safe for use on babies younger than 6 months.

 

Are Waxhead products cruelty-free?

Yes, Waxhead uses absolutely NO animal testing. We test our sunscreens on humans using federally mandated FDA sunscreen testing protocol in order to accurately calculate our products’ SPFs for labeling.

 

Do Waxhead sunscreens expire?

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, but the FDA requires sunscreen products to list a 3-year shelf life, mainly because petrochemical active ingredients degrade over time. Our inactive ingredients are relatively resistant to oxidation, and zinc oxide acts as both an antimicrobial and anti-fungal preservative. However, if you ever feel a Waxhead product has spoiled, just let us know, and we'll send you a replacement.

 

How does Waxhead Zinc Oxide provide UV protection?

Zinc oxide is simply THE best active sunscreen ingredient, and by a wide margin. Covering the entire UVA/UVB spectrum by itself, it has the most consistently effective absorption capabilities, which never degrade. In contrast, petrochemical sunscreens need multiple active ingredients for complete coverage, which degrades quickly on the shelf, and even titanium dioxide needs significant help (from zinc oxide) to cover a large portion of the UVA spectrum range.

 

Will Waxhead sunscreens make skin appear white?

Zinc oxide can give skin a whitish hue depending upon the amount applied and the natural skin tone of the user. We offer tinted versions that use either certified organic cocoa or iron oxides to provide a more skin-colored hue.

 

How is Waxhead different from other sunscreens?

Most sunscreens (even ones labeled “all-natural” or "healthy") contain unsafe ingredients, including petrochemicals, along with other questionable or even toxic ingredients. Waxhead sunscreens use only non-nano zinc oxide along with other certified organic and completely safe inactive ingredients. Each of Waxhead's products are top-rated by EWG.

 

Why do Waxhead sunscreens cost more?

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 here.

 

Are Waxhead sunscreens tear-free?

All our sunscreens and skincare products are tear-free. We use only non-nano uncoated zinc oxide along with other edible grade, certified organic inactive ingredients.

 

Are Waxhead sunscreens greasy?

They are significantly thicker and less greasy than common petrochemical sunscreens. About 10-15% of our customers consider our sunscreens “greasy” – compared to 60-80% of common sunscreen customers.

 

Are Waxhead products vegan?

Because we use certified organic beeswax, our sunscreens are not technically vegan. However, they are certified organic and cruelty-free.

 

Are Waxhead sunscreens ok for the lips?

Yes. All our sunscreens use only top-grade non-nano zinc oxide and certified organic, edible grade inactive ingredients. For our vanilla sport stick, this includes vanilla extract, beeswax, and coconut oil. Just like our lip balms, our sunscreens are thick and tough and take a bit of time to spread and rub in on the lips, but once on, it would deliver the safest, toughest, most eco-friendly lip protection you'll find anywhere.

 

Are Waxhead containers made of plastic?

Yes, our sport sticks and tubes currently use #4 recyclable plastic. We are working to source a more eco-friendly container, and in our search have found that both compostable and biodegradable plastics may actually have a higher carbon footprint than high-grade conventional plastics. Once we find a definitively improved material, we will make the shift to the new material. Also note that our 0.5 oz field tins, in both vanilla and cocoa tinted, contain the same formulations as our sport sticks, but contained in a reusable, pocket-friendly tin.

 

Are your sunscreens moisturizing?

Yes, our tube sunscreens contain certified organic extra virgin olive oil, jojoba oil, shea butter, and vegetable vitamin E. Our sticks and tins contain certified organic coconut oil and beeswax.

 

Does your tinted facial sunscreen dry matte?

Our tinted tube sunscreen tends to dry with a dewey feel, not greasy, but not quite flat or matte. If you need a drier finish, please consider using a facial powder.

 

Will beeswax in the product clog pores?

Beeswax is actually fairly non-clogging, a 2 of 5 (with 5 being BAD for clogging) on the comedogenic rating system. Beeswax is very good at helping skin retain moisture and allows our sunscreens to stay effective longer once applied. The most clogging ingredient in our sunscreens is coconut oil, which is a bit more clogging than jojoba oil and olive oil, but we include it for its antioxidant and other properties that support healthy skin, especially in the sun.

 

How to apply Waxhead Sunscreen

A little goes a long way and you can see exactly where you’re applying it.

Step 1: Shake to mix

Our sunscreens lack chemicals to keep ingredients homogenized, so a bit of liquid may squirt from tube varieties before the sunscreen appears. This is totally OK, and there’s nothing wrong with your sunscreen. Just close the lid and knead or shake the tube.

 

Step 2: Dot sunscreen onto skin in sections

Put sunscreen onto fingertips and apply it in small dots on sections of the face. Dot and spread with fingertips or makeup sponge. If too dewy on skin, use a facial powder. Tint can stain clothing.

 

 

 

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.
