Amelia Island, FL – Amelia Island’s Waxhead Sun Defense Company announced a retail agreement with the island’s premier luxury hotel, the Omni Amelia Island Plantation, to offer resort guests Waxhead sun defense energy bars at various locations throughout the property, including the Omni’s Marché Burette market and deli, its state-of-the-art health and fitness facilities, and its nationally ranked tennis resort.

Omni Area Managing Director Donald Stamets loves that Waxhead products help his resorts stay on the forefront of modern guest preferences. “At the Omni, we take great pride in providing our guests with cutting edge products that make their stay remarkable, and in perfect harmony with nature. Waxhead energy bars fit that mission and will help us maintain our position as Florida’s award-winning island destination.”

Kari and Shannon Kenner launched Waxhead Sun Defense out of Amelia Island in 2015, after realizing how unsafe most big brand sunscreens were, even so-called healthy versions – they contained chemicals that contribute both to the destruction of marine environments and a 4% annual rise in skin cancer. Over the next year, they developed several cutting edge sun defense products such as their all-natural whole food antioxidant-rich energy bars, along with zinc oxide vitamin D enhanced sunscreens, and soon high SPF sun shirts made with fibers from recycled plastic water bottles.

Waxhead co-founder Kari Kenner explains, “Making life in the sun better is our number one goal. We’re excited for our Omni relationship and about giving their guests and the people of Amelia Island and beyond healthier, more effective tools to defend themselves in the sun.”
