Wax has many chemical ingredients, mostly resins and preservatives. Body Sugaring paste is made from 100% NATURAL INGREDIENTS with no testing on animals and with no harmful side effects caused by allergic reactions. It is so natural you can EAT it!
Cross contamination in a waxing room is always a danger, especially since bacteria will breed inside of a wax jar. The sugaring paste is hypoallergenic and does not clog pores. Since our paste has such a high concentration of sugar, bacteria cannot breed in the jar. *Note: Sugar was used to heal wounds during the Civil War as it helps to prevent infections while promoting healing.
Wax products require at least two to three weeks growth before treatment when a client is shaving. Body Sugaring requires less than 1/16 inch or four to seven days growth, after shaving.
Sugaring exfoliates the dead skin cells and leaves your skin smooth and silky. Some clients are prone to in-grown hairs but regular exfoliation between appointments will reduce, and even eliminate, the occurrences of in-grown hairs.
After a number of treatments the hair follicle begins to deplete and the hair grows in more refined each time. Because sugar can extract the shortest hair, it is possible to extract hair in the early growing phase, which can lead to permanency. You will see superior results after just a few treatments.
Since wax contains resins, chemical solvents are required to remove it from floors, equipment, clothing, etc., which can be costly to replace. After waxing, the client is usually left sticky. Body Sugaring paste can be easily cleaned up with water - from both you and your clothes.
One of the most common frustrations of those who wax is early re-growth due to broken hairs. Waxing can leave 15 - 30% breakage behind. This problem is usually caused not by the aesthetician, but by the wax used. Since wax hardens on the hair, it has the tendency to break it off at the surface, rather than pull it out. Using the Body Sugaring technique, the paste wraps around the hair shaft making it pliable, while seeping below the mouth of the follicle and lubricating the hair to make the extraction more complete and gentle. The hair is eased out of the follicle only in the natural direction of growth, which helps to extract the hair intact. Because of the direction of extraction you will feel little, if any, discomfort.
Wax has been known to remove more than just the hair, since it can adhere directly to live skin cells, which makes waxing painful and irritating. Live cells are wet, and because sugar is water soluble, it will not adhere to live skin cells. It is also safe and even beneficial to perform the sugaring treatment on skin with dry itch eczema and dry psoriasis. This means less discomfort for you, and less trauma to the skin. Wax cannot be applied to an area more than twice at the most. Body Sugar is gentle enough to go over the same area several times when necessary to extract the shortest and most coarse hair, without causing skin damage or irritation.
Hot wax must be heated to a very high degree in order to become liquefied. This amount of heat can cause burning and scarring. It also causes swelling in the tissues, which makes hair removal difficult. Long-term use of wax can break down the underlying connecting tissues, especially in the lip and brow areas, which are associated with wrinkling. The Body Sugaring paste is applied at body temperature making it safe for all areas. It is even safe for spider veins and varicose veins. It will not increase blood supply. Body Sugaring paste is barely lukewarm and so your skin will never be burned.
