Uncommonly Safe

Developed through modern holistic biochemistry, our skincare products are purely beneficial for humans and the planet. Made with only certified organic and superior quality mineral ingredients

 

Rebuild Skin Cells

UV rays break down collagen and create free radicals that damage skin cell DNA and cause visible skin aging like sunspots and wrinkles. To reverse sun damage this potent yet gentle anti-aging regenerative serum was created by our Stanford biochemist to repair + renew skin and slow the aging process at the cellular level.

 

Diminish Sun Spots

Antioxidants C and E synergistically fight free radicals that cause sun damage. Vitamin A stimulates skin cell production, and essential fatty aides improve skin tone and texture. Naturally treats melasma, hyper-pigmentation, and age spots on face and hands. Natural Vitamin E shields skin against future UV exposure.

 

Reduce Wrinkles

Formulated to reduce the appearance of fine lines, repair the skin’s surface, restore elasticity, and protect against future sun and pollution stressors that lead to wrinkles. Beta carotene and Carotenoids detoxify cells and increase cell turnover while essential fatty acids rebuild and strengthen skin cell membranes. Vitamin D ensures proper new skin cell development. The serum penetrates into deep layers of skin where Vitamin A and C stimulate collagen production, repair damaged tissue and improve skin moisture levels.

 

Detox + Brighten Skin

This lightweight oil goes deep to moisturize, while Vitamin E removes redness and inflammation caused by UV rays, acne, eczema, and rosacea. Vitamin A evens out skin tone and pigmentation for brighter, more radiant skin. Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) energizes and regenerates cell structure and protects cells from future oxidative damage. Vitamin C naturally encourages cell turnover and brightens dull skin.

Are Waxhead skincare products safe for the environment, reefs, and fish?

Yes, all Waxhead products are safe for marine environments, reefs, and fish. Our products are biodegradable and contain none of the petrochemicals known to have feminizing effects on fish, coral toxicity or bioaccumulation issues.

 

Are Waxhead products cruelty-free?

Yes, Waxhead absolutely does NOT use any animal testing. We test our sunscreens on humans using the federally mandated FDA sunscreen testing protocol in order to calculate our respective products’ SPFs for labeling.

 

What is the shelf life of Waxhead sunscreens? Do they expire?

In practice, 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. The FDA requires sunscreen products to list a 2-year shelf life, mainly because petrochemical active ingredients degrade over time. Our primary inactive ingredients, coconut oil, and olive oil, are very resistant to oxidation, as they contain significant levels of natural antioxidants, and any of our products with Vitamin E (a powerful antioxidant) have a further defense against spoilage. Plus, zinc oxide acts as both an antimicrobial and antifungal preservative.

 

Why do Waxhead products cost more?

Our high-quality, safe ingredients, our smaller economies of scale, and our dedication to safe and healthy biochemistry. Learn more here.

 

When does Waxhead sunscreen expire?

Officially, our sunscreens "expire" 2 years after purchase date. However, this is based on FDA directives mainly concerned with the effective life of petrochemicals in common sunscreens. Our Waxhead sunscreens use non-nano un-coated zinc oxide as their sole active ingredient, and since this is mineral-based, our sunscreens' ability to perform its function of defending against UVA and UVB rays never diminishes. Our inactive ingredients contain significant amounts of naturally occurring anti-fungal and antibacterial properties, which significantly slow any spoilage. In short, our sunscreens will work as long as they're owned.

 

How long does the Sport Stick last?

The answer depends on what areas you're covering. If face only, our sticks will deliver roughly 50-75 applications. If the entire body, roughly 20-30 applications.

 

Are Waxhead sunscreens tear-free?

All our sunscreens and skincare products are tear-free. We use only non-nano uncoated zinc oxide along with other edible grade, certified organic inactive ingredients.

 

Are Waxhead sunscreens greasy?

They are significantly thicker and less greasy than common petrochemical sunscreens. About 10-15% of our customers consider our sunscreens “greasy” – compared to 60-80% of common sunscreen customers.

 

Are Waxhead products vegan?

Because we use certified organic beeswax, our sunscreens are not technically vegan. However, they are certified organic and cruelty-free.

 

Are Waxhead sunscreens ok for the lips?

Yes. All our sunscreens use only top grade non-nano zinc oxide and certified organic, edible grade inactive ingredients. For our vanilla sport stick, this includes vanilla extract, beeswax, and coconut oil. Just like our lip balms, our sunscreens are thick and tough and take a bit of time to spread and rub in on the lips, but once on, it would deliver the safest, toughest, most eco-friendly lip protection you'll find anywhere.

 

What function does the vanilla extract serve?

The main function of our certified organic vanilla is for aroma, which is akin to vanilla cupcakes. It also increases the ease of spreading (just a bit).

 

Are Waxhead containers made of plastic?

Yes, our sport sticks and tubes currently use #4 recyclable plastic. We are working to source a more eco-friendly container, and in our search have found that both compostable and biodegradable plastics may actually have a higher carbon footprint than high-grade conventional plastics. Once we find a definitively improved material, we will make the shift to the new material. Also note that our 0.5 oz field tins, in both vanilla and cocoa tinted, contain the same formulations as our sport sticks, but contained in a reusable, pocket-friendly tin.

 

Are your sunscreens moisturizing?

Yes, our tube sunscreens contain certified organic extra virgin olive oil, jojoba oil, shea butter, and vegetable vitamin E. Our sticks and tins contain certified organic coconut oil and beeswax.

 

Does your tinted facial sunscreen dry matte?

Our tinted tube sunscreen tends to dry with a dewey feel, not greasy, but not quite flat or matte. If you need a drier finish, please consider using a facial powder.

 

Will beeswax in the product clog pores?

Beeswax is actually fairly non-clogging, a 2 of 5 (with 5 being BAD for clogging) on the comedogenic rating system. Beeswax is very good at helping skin retain moisture and allows our sunscreens to stay effective longer once applied. The most clogging ingredient in our sunscreens is coconut oil, which is a bit more clogging than jojoba oil and olive oil, but we include it for its antioxidant and other properties that support healthy skin, especially in the sun.

 

 

How to use Waxhead Sun Damage Repair Serum

Use nightly. Shake 1-3 drops onto the palm of the hand. Use fingertips to evenly dot across freshly washed cheeks, forehead, chin, and eye areas before massaging into skin. It can also use the serum on sunspots on hands. In 10-15 minutes the skin will absorb the oil without leaving greasy residues on the skin’s surface.

Because of the natural content of Vitamin A, we strongly recommend using serum only at night, while the skin’s regeneration potential is peaked. Many users see improvement after nightly use for 2-4 weeks.

 

Some ingredients are perishable, so store in a cool, dark location, and use within one month after opening. Keep unopened container refrigerated. Recommended for all skin types. For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of reach of children.

 

 

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.
