Uncommonly Good for the People + Planet

We presort recycled plastic bottles by color, eliminating the need to dye fabric during the manufacturing process. The eco-friendly process results in:

  • 35% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
  • 66% reduction in energy consumption
  • 55% reduction in water consumption
  • No dyes, no chemicals = less water, less energy
  • Each face shield prevents 3 plastic bottles from reaching landfills or oceans


 

 

Manufacturing Process

To produce our face shields, we work with partners in Haiti and Guatemala, supplying 100% recycled fabric to co-ops there that create sustainable jobs and full-living wages for hundreds of workers in developing countries.

Their teams use our materials to construct shirts worn proudly by our customers. The Guatemalan facility is also powered by biomass that consists of wood chips, coffee extract, and other raw materials. The wood chips are collected from the local forestry industry using sustainable practices.

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

How to apply Waxhead Sunscreen

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.

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 kneed 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 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. It takes a few more seconds, but you can achieve complete coverage without any white residue. Our sunscreen will not fully absorb into skin like chemical sunscreens, even though after rubbing it can appear transparent.

 

 

 

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.

Ingredients matter.

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.

Waxhead far exceeds ingredient ban standards.

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.

Waxhead products nourish skin.

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.

Our eco-friendly apparel.

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%.

We take care of our customers.

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.

Buy Waxhead, protect our coasts.

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.
