Made with 25% non-nano zinc oxide and 8 other certified organic, edible-grade ingredients. True broad spectrum 31 SPF reflects 97% of UVB + UVA rays and Blue Light. Use it daily under makeup or as a light foundation on boat days. The lighter tint (BurlyWood) has a pink-beige undertone and is great for lighter skin tone. The medium tint (DarkGoldenRod) has a bronze-tan undertone and perfect for medium skin tone. Both tints are tinted with iron oxide, which can stain clothing. This sunscreen is biodegradable and packaged in 100% recyclable tubes.
Matched to both human and marine bio-systems to deliver the world’s safest, most comprehensive, most eco-friendly defense against the sun’s UV rays.
It costs more, but you'll use it all season, and it delivers the safest, healthiest, most comprehensive UVA + UVB + Blue Light protection you can find.
Skin is actually nourished under the protection of our tinted facial sunscreen made from just 9 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).
We've added natural iron oxide to conceal the typically white appearance of zinc oxide. When used properly, zinc oxide sunscreen gives skin a visible 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 tinted facial sunscreens are also 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've been using this sunscreen for a month now and I'm still not sure how I feel about it. I think the color is a little....off somehow. It mostly blends in just fine (takes a little while, though) and I feel like it's too greasy. I'm not a fan of the shiny look. But I have yet to get a sunburn, so at least it works. I'll keep using it to see if my opinion changes.
This stuff is fantastic, even better than the last great sunscreen I had (that went out of business). I had MF, a cancerous lymphoma that presents only as an innocent-looking little pink rash. After going through many doctors, I finally found one who could treat it but they did so with intensive UVA light baths. All of which was great, it disappeared but at the end they mentioned that as a byproduct of the treatment they had burned off ALL of my skin's natural protection and I would, for the rest of my life, have to wear big hats, long sleeve shirts and pants, etc. and lots of SUNSCREEN, or I would get skin cancer (so I traded a cure for one cancer for the possibility of another). So I've been doing as they said and now I have Waxhead suncreen and I am SO RELIEVED -- because without it I would almost certainly struggle with all the other (96%) of sunscreens that protect you by interrupting your hormones (the ones that tell you you are burned). Waxhead DOES NOT do that! They use natural oils to protect you and NON-NANO zinc (which does not affect the ocean reefs and fish). Waxhead sunscreen, thank you so much, you're a life saver!
This product is perfect for skin protection and a little tint of summertime color. It’s filled with safe effective products.
I purchased the darkgoldenrod tinted facial sunscreen and was very pleased with the product. I love the texture of the product and its ability to blend into the skin. Compared to other mineral sunscreens it is very light on the face, you dont feel like there is something on your face.
I typically use Shisedo. But this product gives you a nice healthy glow. And it just "feels healthy" on your skin
A little goes a long way and you can see exactly where you’re applying it.
Our sunscreens lack chemicals to keep ingredients homogenized, so a bit of liquid may squirt from tube varieties before the sunscreen appears. This is totally OK, and there’s nothing wrong with your sunscreen. Just close the lid and knead or shake the tube.
Put sunscreen onto fingertips and apply it in small dots on sections of the face. Dot and spread with fingertips or makeup sponge. If too dewy on skin, use a facial powder. Tint can stain clothing.
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.
