“What did I do without this? I wear it in place of makeup and it's GOOD for my skin!”— Linda B
Our non-toxic, tinted facial sunscreen is the cleanest, healthiest sunscreen you'll find. Use it daily to stay protected from the sun and avoid the white cast from mineral sunscreens.
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 + Blue Light
Exceptionally clean formula we use only superior quality, minimally processed ingredients
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 have used at least three tubes of this sunscreen and cannot recommend it enough. First of all, it is mineral based, reef safe, cruelty free, fragrance free, comes in tinted formula, with all organic and mineral ingredients, which I have to have in my sunscreens. I especially need mineral sunscreen on my face and neck for my super sensitive skin. I looked high and low for all these attributes and could not find one that had everything I wanted and also looked good on my face. Waxhead does! The light/medium tint looks great on my fair but olive toned skin (not too pink or orange), and I use it every day in place of foundation. I also use various serums as part of my skincare routine in the morning before I put my sunscreen on, and the Waxhead plays well layered over the serums without the "'pilling" that I have experienced with some brands. Also, they use iron oxides as part of the tint, which are natural and provide extra protection, according to what I have read, against the blue light emitted by the screens of our devices. I do not mind having to shake it due to the natural emulsifiers! Great customer service as well - this company truly believes in what they do, cares about their customers, and makes a great sunscreen! (I am trying to give the maximum number of stars but it seems like the website may be glitching, so in case it isn't showing, I give a 5+ star rating!
This is great stuff. The best sunscreen I have ever used. I hope it will be available for years to come.
I use this sunscreen when I’m going to be outside all day hiking or doing other outdoor activity’s. It is a little too pinkish for my skin tone for every day in town wear. It’s a little on the greasy side, but feels like it’s good for my skin. I appreciate the fact that it has very few ingredients.
I thought a tinted sunscreen might be ok for me, but it is too much for me. I feel like it stained anything it touched and I was worried about it smudging off on clothes, hats, furniture, everything! I'll just stick to untinted from now on.
I use this every day, instead of any make up! My skin has never looked better!
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.
