History of Sugar waxing

The earliest references to hair removal came from the ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia, Egypt and Greece. Early writings out of Mesopotamia tell of kings asking that women be brought to them clean and smooth, i.e. hairless. Ancient Egyptians place a high importance on aesthetics and cosmetics. Egyptian hieroglyphics describe how slave girls serving Pharaoh were expected to remove their body hair. Hair on the body was considered unclean by the upper class. Possibly through a fortuitous accident, the method of using sugar for hair removal treatments was developed.

Comparison of wax

  • Often contains: dyes, synthetic toxic fragrances, non-biodegradable, plastic (polymer), irritants and harsh preservatives

  • Increased cost due to the need of a lot more supplies, not to mention you may use double or triple the amount of product for the same service with much lower quality ingredients, and not organic

  • Adheres to live skin cells, pine resin/rosins are sap which sticks like the dickens sometimes to live skin cells

  • Still breaks a small percentage of hair compared to sugaring which virtually breaks almost no hair

  • Increased pain is associated and wax has the potential to do more damage to connective tissue

  • Can burn, irritate and injure the skin leaving a scab.

  • Very difficult to clean up, must use harsh solvents, which can ruin clothes and carpets.

  • Greater chance of ingrown hair due to follicle warping or tearing, toxic ingredients, dyes, fragrances, and hair breakage

benefits of sugaring 

  • 100%: ORGANIC, VEGAN, NON-GMO, NON-TOXIC, NO PRESERVATIVES, BIODEGRADABLE

  • Earth-friendly, using very few supplies, creating far less waste and saving trees!

  • Leads to permanency quickly, removes hair at 1/16th of an inch, or the early anagen phase of hair growth, the best time to achieve permanency

  • The hairless plan, because sugaring removes the hair every 3-4 weeks at much shorter lengths enjoy having no hair all the time

  • Adheres only to dead skin cells, sugar paste repels water initially try putting a drop of water on a sugar ball it will roll off, sugar will not stick to live skin cells due to their water content

  • It’s less painful than waxing, sugar contains lemon juice and glycolic acid it lubricates and softens as it seeps into the follicle, you then remove the hair in it’s natural direction of growth which also reduces pain

  • Will diminish ingrown hairs, you are following the natural direction of hair growth, will not warp or tear the follicles, which can cause recurring ingrowns

  • Will not break the hair sugar seeps down in the follicle, softens and wraps itself around the base of the hair removing the hair completely

  • Does not damage delicate facial tissue (heat can damage connective tissue)

  • Sugaring is a great exfoliating treatment for the skin

  • Water soluble, cleans up fast and easy with warm-hot water

  • Won't burn the skin because it’s not heated

  • Removes hair as short as 1/16th of an inch
