Skin is actually nourished under the protection of our UV Defense Lip Balm made from just 6 certified organic and mineral sunscreen ingredients.
Regardless of marketing messages, it’s the actual ingredients that matter. We use only superior quality ingredients.
Our products are FDA-approved and contain certified organic, edible-grade inactive ingredients. See the roster of all our ingredients.
Instead of just eliminating oxybenzone or octinoxate, Waxhead sunscreens don’t contain ANY petrochemicals. Instead we use non-nano zinc oxide as our sole active ingredient.
This means all our products are truly reef safe, completely safe for marine systems, lakes, reefs and fish (and humans).
Yes, some. When used properly, zinc oxide sunscreen gives skin a visible whitish hue.
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.
Waxhead uses absolutely NO animal testing. We test our sunscreens on willing humans using federally mandated FDA sunscreen testing protocol in order to accurately calculate our products’ SPFs for labeling. Our Lip Balm contains beeswax, so it's not technically vegan.
Our prices represent a true cost to the world. We source our top-grade ingredients only from reputable, fair-trade, cruelty-free companies that are almost entirely US-based. We don’t purchase ingredients from countries with questionable labor or production practices. Learn more.
Waxhead products are designed using top-level biochemistry knowledge.
We use a complete holistic appreciation for how our formulations react with skin in the sun and how they affect our environment.
We pretty much cherish our customers. When they have questions about skincare, we give our full unbiased info and opinions.
In the rare instances when they have problems, we do all we can to make them happy.
I just want to say that I'm so pleased that I found this product. I'm a red head with fair and sensitive skin. I have never been able to put sunscreen on my lips (nor lipstick, gloss, or chapstick) because 100% of the time, they would blister, but they would also blister if they got sun burned. For over 20 years now my best defense has been to tuck my top and bottom lips between one another by biting them on the inside (I dont know how else to describe this action). I have used the lip sunscreen twice and I'm RELIEVED to know that FINALLY theres something on the market that works for me! I'm also extremely pleased with other sunscreen products that I ordered. To me, and in MY LIFE and MY FAMILY, THIS is a life changer!!
Thank you so very much for finding the perfect balance of a HEALTHY product.
I use Waxhead Zinc Oxide Lip Balm to block the sun from my lips and it does just that. Before I used Waxhead my lips would burn, blister and swell. But, now that I’ve found Waxhead Zinc Oxide Lip Balm, my lips are completely protected from the harmful sun rays. My lips stay soft and I don’t have to endure the discomfort or embarrassment as before.
Total peace of mind knowing I can spend hours in the sun without any gnarly growths appearing on my lips.
4 tubes is a generous supply. Ingredients are all harmless to living things including me.
I am very happy to have discovered waxhead.
Yes it leaves my lips a little white, but I know they are being protected! I use it every night before going to sleep too!
Overall love all the natural non-nano ingredients however it is very difficult to smooth on your lips. Have to use another deep moisturizing lip balm over top to smooth it out.
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.
Put lip balm in small dots on sections of lips.
Once a section is dotted, rub lips together and thin out into an almost invisible layer across your skin.
After you’ve rubbed your lips together, you can further rub in with your fingertips 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 the 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.
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.
