Waxhead Tinted Facial Sunscreen
Our non-toxic, tinted facial sunscreen is the cleanest, healthiest sunscreen you'll find. Use it daily to stay protected from the sun and avoid the white cast from mineral sunscreens.
Made with 25% non-nano zinc oxide and 8 other certified organic, edible-grade ingredients. True broad spectrum 31 SPF reflects 97% of UVB + UVA rays and Blue Light. Use it daily under makeup or as a light foundation on boat days. The lighter tint (BurlyWood) has a pink-beige undertone and is great for lighter skin tone. The medium tint (DarkGoldenRod) has a bronze-tan undertone and perfect for medium skin tone. Both tints are tinted with iron oxide, which can stain clothing. This sunscreen is biodegradable and packaged in 100% recyclable tubes.

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.
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.
I’m a field biologist, I’m always out in the sun. My coworker suggested I try your tinted sunscreen and it looks almost like foundation! I absolutely will buy this product again and again!
I like the idea of this product but I don’t think it’s for me. It seemed rather oily going on and made me break out on my face. When applied to other parts of the body, it looked a little chalky. Not a bad product I think it could work really well for others but it’s just not for me, unfortunately. Great concept with the tinted zinc sunscreen though for people with darker skin tones!
I use this on my face, hands, and arms, if needed. My old tinted reef safe sunscreen was discontinued, and I didn’t think I would find something I liked as much, but Waxhead is a winner. I, also, use a whitish mostly clear zinc around my eyes and on my chin (to lighten), then dab on tinted Waxhead to cover my whole face. It is lightweight and blends great!
I’ve been allergic to all sunscreen with an SPF of 15 and higher my whole life… I purchased this because of the ingredients and it works great! No allergies for me! It’s reef safe and they’re very conscious of what they put in the tube. I’m very pleased and have recommended this to many friends
I’m a fan of both the tinted tube and untinted zinc stick Waxhead formulas. It seems expensive, but it’s an excellent value for how much product you get. I thought the tinted would be too dark on me, but it actually looks really natural, and eliminates the ghost face look. A MUST for surfers and those who SUP.Great company with great ethics and excellent customer service.
