Ingredients

Sugar paste is simply made out of lemon juice, sugar and water.

Most waxes are made of many chemical ingredients, mainly resins and preservatives.

temperature

Sugar paste is applied at body temperature and will not burn your skin. 

Wax must be heated to a high degree and can cause burning or scarring of skin.

cleanliness

You will never leave a sugaring session feeling sticky.

Wax needs chemical solvents to remove any residue left on skin.

REGROWTH

Sugaring removes hair in the direction of growth, resulting in much more refined regrowth. 

Waxing removes hair against the grain, which can cause breakage, leading to ingrowns.

skin repair

Sugaring only adheres to dead skin cells, exfoliating the skin while removing hair. 

Waxing adheres to and tears live skin cells, causing long-term damage to skin.

suitability

Sugaring is safe for all skin conditions, even sensitive types with eczema.

Waxing is not 100% safe for any skin type.

bacteria

Sugar is bacteria resistant.

Bacteria breeds in wax warmers.

environment

A ball of sugar paste can be used repeatedly on different parts of your body.

Waxing with cloth strips and sticks creates far more environmental waste.
