Say goodbye to chemical sunscreens that harm both your body and the planet. It's time to upgrade your sun protection. This sunscreen is gentle, effective, and environmentally responsible.
Unparalleled Protection in a Convenient Tin
Our travel-friendly tins are more than just a pretty package. They contain the thickest and toughest sunscreen you'll ever experience.

The Power of Non-Nano Zinc Oxide
Our sunscreen's secret weapon lies in its use of non-nano zinc oxide, a natural and superior broad-spectrum sunblock. Blocking over 97% of UV rays, it stands strong even during intense physical activities without running or irritating your eyes. This hypoallergenic and biodegradable formula cares for your skin while leaving no room for compromise. A single 2oz tin covers approximately 50-75 face applications, making it a cost-effective choice that lasts all season long. And remember, our sunscreen never contains Oxybenzone, Octinoxate, or Benzene, so it won't harm your gear, repel fish, or leave any unpleasant odors.
Your Skin's Health, Our Priority
We believe in the uncommonly safe and effective power of nature. That's why our sunscreen is meticulously crafted with just four certified organic ingredients, each chosen for its remarkable benefits. Our non-nano, uncoated, French process Zinc Oxide forms the foundation of our formulas, providing unmatched protection across the entire UVA/UVB spectrum. Combined with organic Coconut Oil, Beeswax, and Vanilla Extract, your skin receives nourishment while staying shielded from the sun's harmful rays.

How to apply Waxhead Sunscreen Paste
Thick and tough, our sunscreen takes a bit of 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.
Step 1: Let your fingertips warmup the sunscreen
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.
Step 2: Dot sunscreen onto skin in sections
Put sunscreen onto fingertips and apply it in small dots on sections of the body.
Step 3: Spread out over one area at a time
Once a section is dotted, continue to spread and thin out into an almost invisible layer across your skin.
Step 4: Rub into skin
After you’ve spread out the sunscreen, you can further rub in the cream to a thinner coverage, almost eliminating the color on your skin. Our sunscreen will not fully absorb into the skin like chemical sunscreens, even though after rubbing it can appear transparent.

does not go on smoothly - very difficult to spread on tender facial skin. can I warm it up a bit before attempting to apply? and If so, how?
The tint makes it easy to see that coverage is uniform. I am a very fair woman with Irish skin, and the tint looks fine on me. I play golf every day and Waxhead really protects my face and hands from the sun.
