Why sugar is a better choice!

How to choose a method of hair removal that is suitable for you

Sugar is a natural and gentle ingredient that has been used for centuries to remove body hair, the Egyptians were famous for it. Wax contains synthetic materials and chemicals that can cause skin irritation, redness, and even burns. Sugar paste is made from sugar, lemon juice, and water, which means it is much more gentle on the skin and less likely to cause any adverse reactions.

How is the sugar applied?

Sugar paste is not applied to your skin at a high temperature so this means there is no risk of burning or worse. Wax is much hotter and applied to the skin after an oil is wiped on, to help it stick, this can be painful and uncomfortable for many people and not a good choice if you are diabetic!

Did you know that sugar paste is water-soluble? this means it can be easily removed with warm water from your skin, plus if it lands on the floor or your clothes, it is easily removed. Wax requires solvents to remove it, which can be harsh on the skin, cause dryness, spoil your clothes or damage your floor.

Sugar paste leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth, it exfoliates dead skin cells, while wax can sometimes leave a sticky residue behind, ever seen those patches of darkness where the material of your clothing has stuck to the residue left by waxing?

Sugar paste is applied in the direction of hair growth and removed in the opposite direction, which also helps to minimise discomfort.

Finally, sugar paste is more environmentally friendly than wax, as it is made from natural and biodegradable ingredients. Wax, on the other hand, contains synthetic materials that are not eco-friendly and can contribute to pollution.

Sugar is a much kinder and gentler method of hair removal and is less likely to cause skin irritation or burns. If you are looking for a more natural and eco-friendly way to remove unwanted hair, sugar may be the perfect option for you.
