Uncommonly Effective Sun Protection

Learn what makes Waxhead so Effective

The simple truth, that the sunscreen you use matters, can be hard to recognize amid the flood of misinformation in our info stuffed world. But make no mistake, while most sunscreens are very bad for us, Waxhead is THE best choice you can make for healthy living in the sun.


Biochemistry Matters

Waxhead sunscreens are designed using top-level biochemistry knowledge with a complete holistic appreciation for how our formulations react with skin in the sun and how they affect our environment. Waxhead uses modern holistic science and traditional ingredients to restore man’s healthy relationship with the sun.

Ingredients Matter

Waxhead uses only superior quality, minimally processed ingredients. Our products contain certified organic edible-grade inactive ingredients and they combine to deliver the safest, most effective, most eco-friendly sun defense available. We never use any toxic chemicals, fragrances, synthetics or dyes.


Non-Nano Zinc Oxide

For their active sunscreen ingredient, Waxhead products use only non-nano zinc oxide, which is the ONLY active sunscreen ingredient that’s completely safe for humans and marine life and covers the entire UVA-UVB spectrum by itself. Petrochemicals are clearly unacceptable, but both titanium dioxide, which does NOT cover a significant portion of the UVA spectrum, and nano particle zinc oxide, which harms marine life as it enters marine biosystems, also fall well short.

Truly Reef Safe + Animal Safe

Instead of just eliminating oxybenzone or octinoxate, Waxhead sunscreens don’t contain ANY petrochemicals, meaning they’re TRULY reef safe. All our products are safe for marine systems, reefs and fish — they are biodegradable and contain none of the petrochemicals known to have feminizing effects on fish, coral toxicity or bio-accumulation issues. All our skincare products are certified Leaping Bunny safe (absolutely no animal testing). All products are fully certified by the FDA, and we only test our products on ourselves.


Skin Nourishing

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.

More Good Stuff

Waxhead sunscreen ingredients won’t repel fish, won’t harm your gear, and won’t sting your eyes. These benefits don’t matter so much to your health or the environment, but they make for a much more rewarding day in the sun.
