How to apply Waxhead Sunscreen

Waxhead Sunscreens are quite different than common sunscreens. They don’t need application 20 minutes before sun exposure, and they don’t degrade in the sunshine like typical petrochemical sunscreens.

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 (and where you've missed). Visible sunscreen is a nod to ancestral wisdom and a badge of smart living. Wear Waxhead Sunscreen proudly.

Step 3. Let it show

Don't rub it all off. And reapply after towel drying.

 

 

TIPS + VIDEOS

Our sunscreens don’t squeeze and spread as easily as those using petrochemical ingredients. Here are some tips to help you thrive in the sun.


 

TUBE SUNSCREEN

Our tubes do not have synthetic emulsifiers to keep ingredients homogenized, so a bit of water or oil may separate.

This is totally OK, and there’s nothing wrong with your sunscreen. Just close the lid and knead or shake the tube to remix.

 

 

 

SUNSCREEN STICKS

Push it slowly up from bottom. If you push the stick too far out, tap container bottom firmly against a hard surface. Sunscreen will slide down back into the tub.

Use stick to directly dot sunscreen onto the skin (this will help warm up sunscreen too), then spread and rub into skin.

 

 

 

FIELD TINS

For easier application, rub your fingers in a circle inside the tins. The warmth from your fingers will soften the sunscreen.

 

 

 

TINTED SUNSCREENS

Our tinted tube sunscreens use natural iron oxides as a tint. And our tinted stick and tins contain certified organic cocoa powder. Both of these ingredients can stain your clothing or bathing suit, so be mindful of where you're applying. Read how to remove stains here.
