“I just place a dot in several areas of my face and spread it out so it is not caulky looking, it works GREAT!”— Marie M
Our non-toxic Vitamin Enriched Zinc Oxide Sunscreen is the most comprehensive, healthy, eco-friendly UV protection you'll find. Uncommonly gentle, use it daily to nourish and defend sensitive skin from the sun.
Enhanced with non-GMO Vitamins D + E and made with 25% non-nano zinc oxide and 5 other certified organic, edible-grade ingredients.
True broad spectrum 35 SPF reflects over 97% of UVB + UVA rays
A little goes a long way and whitish cast shows where it’s working (and where it isn’t).
Matched to both human and marine bio-systems to deliver the world’s safest, most comprehensive, most eco-friendly defense against the sun’s UV rays.
It costs more, but you'll use it all season, and it delivers the safest, healthiest, most comprehensive UVA + UVB protection you can find.
Skin is actually nourished under the protection of our Vitamin Enriched Sunscreen made from just 6 certified organic and mineral sunscreen ingredients.
Regardless of marketing messages, it’s the actual ingredients that matter. We use only superior quality ingredients.
Our products are FDA-approved and contain certified organic, edible-grade inactive ingredients. See the roster of all our ingredients.
Instead of just eliminating oxybenzone or octinoxate, Waxhead sunscreens don’t contain ANY petrochemicals. Instead we use non-nano zinc oxide as our sole active ingredient.
This means all our products are truly reef safe, completely safe for marine systems, lakes, reefs and fish (and humans).
Yes, some. When used properly, zinc oxide gives skin a visible whitish hue. We offer tinted versions to provide a more skin-colored hue.
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.
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. Our Vitamin Enhanced sunscreen contains beeswax, so it's not technically vegan.
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.
Waxhead products are designed using top-level biochemistry knowledge.
We use a complete holistic appreciation for how our formulations react with skin in the sun and how they affect our environment.
We pretty much cherish our customers. When they have questions about skincare, we give our full unbiased info and opinions.
In the rare instances when they have problems, we do all we can to make them happy.
This sunscreen is not for me at all. It makes you actually glow white - you'll look more like a freshly glossed white mercedes vs a chrome white tesla (like other white sunscreens). It is also not made for the water so no sweating or swimming allowed! It is moisturizing though
This still is white and shows some on skin like my past zinc products but that is to be expected. This one is better than the other brands I have tried because it is less drying to your skin. It has moisturizers.
I’ve been trying out various natural/healthy sunscreen brands, and this one is by far my favorite! It has a great texture and actually rubs into your skin. Of course, you’ll be a little white, but I’ve found that all zinc sunscreens do that no matter what. Will absolutely be buying again!
Always good to purchase a product that is not filled with junk ingredients. I always go to EWG to get their rating, and this one rates right up there. It is easy to use, if used at directed. I just place a dot in several areas of my face and spread it out so it is not caulky looking, it works GREAT! Thank you for a quality product that not only protects our skin, but is not filled with dangerous chemicals.
The sunscreen works really well—and it’s safe for the marine life and our skin. It does take time to apply because it is thick.
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.
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 knead the tube, which should reduce (but not totally prevent) any water separation.
Put sunscreen onto fingertips and apply it in small dots on sections of the body.
Once a section is dotted, continue to spread and thin out into an almost invisible layer across your skin.
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 the skin like chemical sunscreens.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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%.
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.
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.
