Baby Sunscreen Ingredient Details + Source of Origin

1. 25% Non-Nano Zinc Oxide

Zinc oxide absorbs UV energy via bandgap absorption and reflects and scatters in the visible spectrum, preventing skin penetration and cell damage. The broadest spectrum UVA/UVB reflector that’s FDA-approved for sunscreen use, zinc oxide is also the only FDA-approved active ingredient for use on children under 6 months of age. Zinc oxide holds tight to its electrons when it absorbs UV energy, limiting the creation of free radicals that cause oxidative damage and increase the risk of skin cancer. We use non-nano, uncoated, French process Zinc Oxide as our sole active sunscreen ingredient, and all our sunscreens contain 25% - the most of any brand. Origin > USA. EWG Rating: 2

2. Spring Water

Purer water supports purer skin. We use only Eldorado Springs artesian water, which is purer because the confining layers of rock and clay impede the movement of contamination. Eldorado Springs is one of the world’s purest natural sources of water, which is not chemically treated in any way. The location and unique geological environment of the source ensures consistently pure water, which has been consumed by humans for countless generations. Origin > Colorado, USA. EWG Rating: 1

3. Certified Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Our certified organic extra virgin olive oil is obtained from the first pressing of the olive and left in its natural unrefined state. Olive oil conditions and moisturizes skin naturally and contributes to skin elasticity. Containing three major antioxidants (vitamin E, polyphenols and phytosterols), olive oil protects the skin from premature aging, restoring skin smoothness and protecting against UV radiation. Olive oil penetrates deeply into skin, cleansing without clogging pores. Origin > Italy, Spain. EWG Rating: 1

4. Certified Organic Beeswax

A top moisturizer, Beeswax protects and repairs rough, dry or chapped skin by locking in moisture. Beeswax has emollient properties, softening and rehydrating skin while aiding in cellular reconstruction. It is also non-comedogenic: it won’t clog pores. Plus it has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, making it effective in the treatment of acne. We use only non-GMO, certified organic beeswax in our skincare products. Origin > Argentina, Turkey. EWG Rating: 1

5. Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a superb antioxidant known for its skin-healing properties and free radical quenching. It is a fat-soluble nutrient and antioxidant, defends against oxidative stress, improves skin elasticity, and prevents wrinkles, age spots and blemishes. Vitamin E can reduce the appearance of scars or burns by normalizing the color and texture of the skin, all while stimulating healing and growth of new skin cells. We use only Vitamin E oil from certified organic, non-GMO sunflower seeds. Origin > USA. EWG Rating: 1

6. Vitamin D

Natural vitamin D is actually a hormone the body cannot create it on its own, producing it when sunlight converts cholesterol on the skin into vitamin D3. Topical application allows vitamin D3 to go straight into the skin without metabolizing in the body. Studies show that skin wounds need vitamin D3 to protect against infection and begin normal repair processes. It’s also an effective treatment for psoriasis, acne and eczema, while boosting skin elasticity and stimulating collagen production. We use only natural vitamin D3 (never synthetic). Origin > USA. EWG Rating: 5


Will this sunscreen make my skin white?

Yes, some. When used properly, zinc oxide gives skin a visible whitish hue. The ability to see the sunscreen on the skin is especially useful to parents as they need to see where skin is protected and where they need to apply.

When will this sunscreen expire?

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.

How many applications does this product contain?

The answer depends on what areas you're covering. If face only, our 4oz sunscreen will deliver roughly 75-100 applications. If the entire body, about 20-30 applications.

Why does Waxhead cost more than other sunscreens?

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.

How to apply Waxhead Baby Sunscreen

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.

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 knead 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 the 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. Our sunscreen will not fully absorb into the skin like chemical sunscreens.

Never been burned

My child is now 15 months old and all I have used is Waxhead from 3 months on. We have never been sunburned from all of our lake days. No skin irritation. And I love knowing all the ingredients are easily read and understood.

A. Smith
Well ranked sunscreen but greasy, not absorbant

I came across this sunscreen after reading the Environmental Working Group’s Sunscreen Report and wanting to choose safer sunscreens for my kids & family. This sunscreen was among the best rated in terms of safety of ingredients and UVA/UVB protection. Unfortunately it’s super greasy and doesn’t absorb well. There are sunscreen smudges all over the car seats & elsewhere from transfer off bare skin.


For zinc sunscreen, I found this to leave a little less mess behind than others I’ve used. Mind you, it’s still messy. I absolutely love the very limited amount of ingredients in this product and my toddler’s sensitive skin didn’t at all react. We were on the Gulf Coast of the US for a beach trip, and it was windy; no worries about losing a spray sunscreen to the wind! It’s also a little closer to the equator and therefore easier to roast under the sun, but I was so happy that he didn’t. Granted, I reapplied faithfully every 90 minutes, and we had a sunshade. He also wore a hat and rash guard. But everything exposed didn’t burn. This stays on really well in the water. The only issue is if a suit strap or rash guard rubs against it, or you have a spot where a repetitive motion is occurring (like the crook of your arm/top of forearm while building a sand castle), you’ll lose sunblock from this area sooner simply because it’s being rubbed off. The good thing is, because this is zinc, you can see those areas getting exposed and reapply accordingly. The same thing happens with all sunscreen, but I never thought about it quite so much until confronted with a visual. Bottom line is, this is the only thing I will put on my child for extended outdoor play, and I felt very confident in its performance and the ingredients.The one thing that bothers me is that I could discern no difference between the “regular” sunscreen and the “kids” version; I purchased both. As an environmentally conscious company, I think it would make more sense to market them as one “All-family” sunscreen in a bigger bottle; it would have spared the environment the additional plastic tube, plus it’s easier to do a run of one product than change your packaging setup for two (yes, I work in consumer packaged goods). I know it’s sometimes more profitable in the short term to sell “kids” and “adults” products because you get the consumer to buy both, but when you have something that’s this safe and actually works on every member of the family...I’d lean into that. It’s a better story and ultimately, better for the planet. I hope to see them evolve!

Excellent Sun Block

This product works very well as advertised. I applied it before going out on a very sunny day and did not get any sunburn. I did not reapply as directed, but I was still protected. The only problem with this product and the reason for losing one star is that it makes your skin white no matter what you do. This is OK for arms and legs, but I looked like a clown with a white face. It may not matter for babies, but it is a bad look for me.I will continue to use this on my body and look elsewhere for face protection.

K Beale
the best!

This is THE best all natural sunscreen I have tried yet, and we have tried a LOT of them. It goes on smoothly and doesn't feel super sticky. We used it at our week at the beach and no burns! Thanks for making a great sunscreen!
