what is sugaring?
Sugaring is an ancient Egyptian method of hair removal using a natural product made of lemon, sugar, and water which dates back to the 1900’s. It is a widely used method of hair removal in many parts of the world, however is just beginning to gain popularity in the UK and Europe.
Our product has been specifically hand created by Nagwa (an Egyptian sugarista and nurse) and is therefore completely individual to anything else on the market. She took everything she knew about the trade she loved and over several years created a soft, regular, and hard paste, as well as the revolutionary strip sugar; which allows those who are trained in/prefer the method of strip waxing, to still apply and remove the product like a wax but have all the additional benefits of sugaring.

Benefits of Sugaring
Sugaring has many advantages over other methods of hair removal including:
It is made out of natural ingredients (sugar, water, and lemon) therefore reactions to our product are unlikely, and it is super kind to sensitive skin. These natural ingredients also mean that our product is Vegan friendly and never tested on animals (unless you count us). It is also made using fair trade sugar.
It is applied in the opposite direction of the hair and then removed in the direction of the hair growth, which means there are less ‘snapped hairs’ meaning more are pulled from the root. This allows the hair will become thinner and more sparse over time and reduces the risk of ingrown hairs.
It is applied at body temperature so there is no burning or discomfort unlike wax.
Because it is made of natural products it is safe to use from head to toe and everywhere in between.
It does not adhere to live skin cells unlike wax, therefore the sugar paste gently exfoliates the skin without causing trauma to it.
Is Sugaring the same as waxing?
Both sugaring and waxing are forms of hair removal, however, we believe sugaring has many benefits over waxing, these can be seen on our benefits page.
Where can you sugar?
Our sugar paste/ strip sugar is safe to use from head to toe and everywhere in between. Speak to your local sugarista about what hair removal services they offer.
How long should my hair be?
Your hair should be at least 1/4 of an inch long, unlike wax (which sticks to the skin) sugar paste adheres to the hair to remove it (this is why sugaring is less painful and kinder to sensitive skin)
What is sugar paste made from?
Sugar paste is made from sugar, lemon, and water; meaning it’s vegan friendly and always cruelty free. We also use fair-trade sugar.
What is the difference between sugar paste and strip sugar?
The ingredients are the same (it’s how we make them that alters the texture). Our paste is used for hand sugaring, whilst our revolutionary strip sugar can be used alongside baristrips and removed in the same way as traditional waxing.
Is sugaring safe during pregnancy?
As our sugaring products are made from natural products it is safe to use during pregnancy, however please consult your midwife and/or local sugarista prior to your hair removal treatment.
