Our sunscreens are purely beneficial for humans and the planet. Developed through holistic biochemistry, we make them in the USA with only certified organic and superior quality mineral ingredients.

Waxhead Sunscreen costs more and goes on thicker than common brands, but a little goes a long way and delivers the safest, most eco-friendly, most comprehensive UVA + UVB + UVC + Blue Light protection you can find.
I love the sunscreen. Was in the sun for 5 days, without any sunburn, and only had to apply twice throughout the day in 90+ degree weather. Already recommended to my friends. Thanks so much. Normally I would have burned by now.
We loved it! It's an amazing product and definitely I recommend to my friends and family.
Waxhead Sun Defense is hands down the best, all-natural / organic sunscreen on the market! As a red haired surfer, I have to be very careful to protect my skin, but want something that I don't have to get out of the water every hour to reapply. Waxhead goes on thick, dries really quickly, and lasts for hours. A little goes a long way and I've even put it on while sweating! Plus, if your kids are little wiggle worms (like mine) when you apply sunscreen, it is the fastest drying sunscreen I have ever used, which makes that chore so much easier! What's not to love??
Sunscreen is usually a battle at our household but not anymore since discovering Waxhead. My kids like the way it feels and said it's not chalky or slimy like others. They also love the way it smells! For my kids I like using the original stick so I know they're covered. The fact that it's all natural and kid friendly is important to me and they are more protected in the sun than with other products. Thank you, Waxhead!
Whether in the streets or in the water - Waxhead sun defense keeps me protected.
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.
Slowly push up the product from the bottom of the tube, then apply sunscreen in small dots and stripes onto sections of the face and body. (Retract product back into stick container by smacking bottom against a hard surface.)
Once applied, spread into an even layer across your skin.
Further rub into a thinner coverage, leaving a slight whitish hue that will deliver complete coverage. Our sunscreens will not fully absorb into the skin like petrochemical 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.
