As a trained pastry chef who has had training in the science behind ingredients, it makes sense that waxing with sugar would hurt less then normal wax. When the sugar comes into contact with your skin, as it cools it will set a little making it less adhesive (compared to wax which stays tacky) whilst holding onto the hairs tightly as the sugar sets around the hairs. This is not only why its less painful but is also why this method of hair removal is more effective then wax. This is also why you can go over an area more then once, because the sugar does not stick to your skin as much as wax.
