Will this sunscreen make my skin white?
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.
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. This Zinc Oxide Sunscreen is 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.
How to Apply
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.
Step 1: Shake tube to mix
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.
Step 2: Dot sunscreen onto skin in sections
Put sunscreen onto fingertips and apply it in small dots on sections of the face.
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 in to reduce whiteness
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. Our sunscreen will not fully absorb into skin like chemical sunscreens, even though after rubbing it can appear transparent.
I love this sunscreen. I got this for a weekend getaway with my family. Kept us fully protected both days. It showed a little white on the skin, but it did the job and our skin actually felt good at the end of the day, instead of oily/stingy from the junk we've used before.I will for sure buy this again!!!!
