Ingredients used effectively for thousands of years
Waxhead uses modern holistic science and traditional ingredients to restore human’s healthy relationship with the sun. We use only superior quality, minimally processed ingredients. Our sunscreens contain only non-nano, uncoated, French process Zinc Oxide, 100% certified organic edible-grade inactive ingredients, and absolutely NO petrochemicals. Our zinc oxide formulas deliver the most effective protection across the entire UVA/UVB spectrum. Although the FDA recognizes many active and inactive ingredients for use in sunscreen, very few meet Waxhead’s elite standards.
6 Total Ingredients
1. 25% Non-Nano Zinc Oxide
2. Spring Water
3. Certified Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4. Certified Organic Beeswax
5. Vitamin E
6. Vitamin D
Non-Nano Zinc Oxide — Our sunscreen contains 25% non-nano, uncoated, French process Zinc Oxide, which absorbs UV energy and reflects and scatters it in the visible spectrum. This prevents skin penetration and cell damage, providing the broadest spectrum UVA/UVB protection. With its high efficacy and FDA approval even for infants under 6 months old, our Zinc Oxide is the ultimate choice for shielding your skin.
Spring Water —We source our water from Eldorado Springs, known for its purity due to confining layers of rock and clay that prevent contamination. This natural spring water, untouched by chemical treatment, supports healthier skin. Its consistently pure composition, consumed by humans for generations, ensures that your skin benefits from the best nature has to offer.
Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil —Our certified organic extra virgin olive oil is rich in antioxidants, such as vitamin E, polyphenols, and phytosterols. It naturally conditions, moisturizes, and improves skin elasticity. With its protective properties against premature aging and UV radiation, our olive oil nourishes your skin, leaving it smooth and free from clogged pores.
Organic Beeswax — Beeswax is a top-notch moisturizer that repairs and protects rough, dry, or chapped skin by locking in moisture. Its emollient properties soften and rehydrate the skin while aiding in cellular reconstruction. With its non-comedogenic nature and additional antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, beeswax effectively treats acne and ensures skin health and vitality.
Vitamin E —Our sunscreen is enriched with vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that not only heals the skin but also combats free radicals. It defends against oxidative stress, improves skin elasticity, and prevents the signs of aging such as wrinkles, age spots, and blemishes. Vitamin E promotes healing, rejuvenation, and the growth of new skin cells, giving you a radiant and youthful complexion.
Vitamin D —Natural vitamin D, essential for overall health, plays a crucial role in protecting and repairing the skin. Our sunscreen includes vitamin D3, which can be directly absorbed by the skin without metabolization. This vitamin supports wound healing, guards against infections, and offers effective treatment for psoriasis, acne, and eczema. It also boosts skin elasticity and stimulates collagen production, ensuring your skin stays healthy and resilient.
Zinc Oxide Sunscreen Frequently Asked Questions
Will this sunscreen make my skin white?
Yes, some. When used properly, zinc oxide sunscreen gives skin a visible whitish hue. The ability to see the sunscreen on the skin is especially useful as you can see where the skin is protected and where you need to apply it.
Is this sunscreen suitable for all skin types?
Absolutely! Our sunscreen is formulated to be gentle and effective for all skin types, including sensitive skin. The natural and organic ingredients we use ensure even those with delicate skin can enjoy the benefits of sun protection without irritation.
How many applications does this product contain?
The answer depends on what areas you're covering. If face only, our 4oz sunscreen will deliver roughly 75-100 applications. If the entire body, about 20-30 applications.
Can I use this sunscreen on my children?
Yes, our sunscreen is safe for children. In fact, our non-nano zinc oxide is the only FDA-approved active ingredient for use on children under 6 months of age. You can have peace of mind knowing your little ones are protected from the sun's harmful rays with our gentle and effective formula.
Is this sunscreen water-resistant?
Yes, our sunscreen is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes, making it ideal for outdoor activities and swimming. However, we recommend reapplying after towel-drying or excessive sweating or towel drying to maintain optimal protection.
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.
Can I use this sunscreen under makeup?
Yes, this sunscreen can be worn under makeup. If you plan on wearing sunscreen under makeup, we recommend this tinted sunscreen instead, it has a thinner formula.
Will this sunscreen cause breakouts or acne?
Our sunscreen is formulated to be non-comedogenic, which means it won't clog your pores or cause breakouts. In fact, the organic and nourishing ingredients in our sunscreen, such as certified organic beeswax and extra virgin olive oil, help moisturize and soothe the skin, making it less prone to acne.
Is this sunscreen reef safe?
Yes, our sunscreen is reef safe and does not contain any harmful chemicals that can harm coral reefs. We are committed to preserving our oceans and using environmentally friendly ingredients that won't contribute to coral bleaching or other ecological damage.
How often should I reapply this sunscreen?
For optimal protection, we recommend reapplying our sunscreen every two hours, especially if you are sweating or spending an extended period in direct sunlight. Please apply after sweating, swimming, or towel drying. It’s important to reapply regularly to ensure continuous protection against UV rays.

Absolutely! Our sunscreen is suitable for use on both the face and body. Its non-greasy formula makes it easy to apply and provides effective protection for all exposed areas of your skin.

Incorporating sunscreen into your daily skincare routine helps protect your skin from premature aging and potential damage caused by sun exposure.

No, this sunscreen has a non-greasy formula that absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving behind a matte finish. It won't make your skin feel greasy or oily, allowing you to enjoy sun protection without any uncomfortable residue.
Can I use this sunscreen if I wear contact lenses?
Yes, our sunscreen is safe to use even if you wear contact lenses. It is formulated to be non-irritating and should not cause any issues when applied around the eye area.

How to Apply
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: Knead 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 knead 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 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 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 the skin like chemical sunscreens.
We are so incredibly grateful for your products. Our 4 year old son suffers from severe eczema and we have tried every recommended product by the National Eczema association as well as those from his dermatologist and allergist. He has horribly flared from all of them, and spent almost the entire summer inside as a result :( My friend heard about your product and we tried it on him and his skin is CLEAR and he said it doesn’t hurt or burn. Your product has literally changed his life. Thank you for what you do!
My skin is dry & sensitive, and very light. This is by far the best sunscreen alone or under makeup, very moisturizing but not greasy. I use both the un-tinted and tinted versions, and if you tend to have a pinker skin tone, you will love the color.
Look, I’ll cut straight to the chase: I wore a sarong, a cover up over my suit, a wide brimmed hat, and sunglasses, and slathered this all over my body. As I tend to favor dark colors, I basically looked like Wednesday Addams on the gulf coast beach we stuck our pop-up on. But as I have burned pretty badly in the past, especially in locales closer to the equator (I’m looking at you, Jamaica), I decided enough is enough. It was time to stop giving a s**t about seeing zinc sunblock on my skin and whether I looked like the walking dead, and to start giving a s**t about skin cancer from the damage, which has the potential to literally make me one of the walking dying.Granted, I was under the shade most of the day, but I was also not for significant chunks of time. I also was sweaty and it was June in the Gulf of Mexico, and I helped my kid build a sandcastle in the full blazing 12 pm sun (who doessss that???) I reapplied a few times; this does rub off against rash guard sleeves, straps, etc. However, every sunblock does that.My husband wanted to be a Cool Guy and use the chemical big-brand spray stuff on his legs. I felt a little sorry for him as the wind cut through the beach and most of it blew away before it hit his skin, but I let him make his sovereign choice. By the end of the day, those were the spots that were roasted...his zinc-blocked spots were fine. He admitted at the end of the trip: “Well, you can tell which one actually works.” Yes, yes you can.The only complaint I have (which I posted on my review of the kids version of this sunblock) is that it seems wasteful to market separate products that are the same ingredients and I’m guessing the same formula. If they’re different formulas, it would help to know that, but I would have been happier carrying one mondo tube of this for the whole family vs. two smaller tubes of environmentally unfriendly plastic. Simplicity here would be helpful! I also purchased the stick, and liked its thicker coverage for some things (nose, scalp, ears, etc) but the “oh look, a mime” factor on that is pretty high. This was my preferred version of the sunblock as it’s easier to slather on the whole body. Great ingredients and I look forward to seeing how this company evolves. My favorite zinc sunblock I’ve tried; will buy again!
Non-irritating, safe, and super effective. This is the go-to sunscreen for our whole family!
