Zinc Oxide Sunscreen

Ingredients used effectively for thousands of years

Waxhead uses modern holistic science and traditional ingredients to restore human’s healthy relationship with the sun. We use only superior quality, minimally processed ingredients. Our sunscreens contain only non-nano, uncoated, French process Zinc Oxide, 100% certified organic edible-grade inactive ingredients, and absolutely NO petrochemicals. Our zinc oxide formulas deliver the most effective protection across the entire UVA/UVB spectrum. Although the FDA recognizes many active and inactive ingredients for use in sunscreen, very few meet Waxhead’s elite standards.

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

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.

Incredibly Grateful

We are so incredibly grateful for your products. Our 4 year old son suffers from severe eczema and we have tried every recommended product by the National Eczema association as well as those from his dermatologist and allergist. He has horribly flared from all of them, and spent almost the entire summer inside as a result :( My friend heard about your product and we tried it on him and his skin is CLEAR and he said it doesn’t hurt or burn. Your product has literally changed his life. Thank you for what you do!

My skin is dry & sensitive, and very light. This is by far the best sunscreen alone or under makeup, very moisturizing but not greasy. I use both the un-tinted and tinted versions, and if you tend to have a pinker skin tone, you will love the color.

You will look like the undead, but remain the unburnt.

Look, I’ll cut straight to the chase: I wore a sarong, a cover up over my suit, a wide brimmed hat, and sunglasses, and slathered this all over my body. As I tend to favor dark colors, I basically looked like Wednesday Addams on the gulf coast beach we stuck our pop-up on. But as I have burned pretty badly in the past, especially in locales closer to the equator (I’m looking at you, Jamaica), I decided enough is enough. It was time to stop giving a s**t about seeing zinc sunblock on my skin and whether I looked like the walking dead, and to start giving a s**t about skin cancer from the damage, which has the potential to literally make me one of the walking dying.Granted, I was under the shade most of the day, but I was also not for significant chunks of time. I also was sweaty and it was June in the Gulf of Mexico, and I helped my kid build a sandcastle in the full blazing 12 pm sun (who doessss that???) I reapplied a few times; this does rub off against rash guard sleeves, straps, etc. However, every sunblock does that.My husband wanted to be a Cool Guy and use the chemical big-brand spray stuff on his legs. I felt a little sorry for him as the wind cut through the beach and most of it blew away before it hit his skin, but I let him make his sovereign choice. By the end of the day, those were the spots that were roasted...his zinc-blocked spots were fine. He admitted at the end of the trip: “Well, you can tell which one actually works.” Yes, yes you can.The only complaint I have (which I posted on my review of the kids version of this sunblock) is that it seems wasteful to market separate products that are the same ingredients and I’m guessing the same formula. If they’re different formulas, it would help to know that, but I would have been happier carrying one mondo tube of this for the whole family vs. two smaller tubes of environmentally unfriendly plastic. Simplicity here would be helpful! I also purchased the stick, and liked its thicker coverage for some things (nose, scalp, ears, etc) but the “oh look, a mime” factor on that is pretty high. This was my preferred version of the sunblock as it’s easier to slather on the whole body. Great ingredients and I look forward to seeing how this company evolves. My favorite zinc sunblock I’ve tried; will buy again!
