Sugar Ingredients

Sugar paste contains: sugar, water, and lemon juice... There is no fragrance, color, or additives in sugar paste. Sugaring is so gentle that it is the #1 hair removal method used for cancer patients undergoing chemo & radiation therapies. Wax contains: resin, synthetic ingredients, preservatives and chemicals.

Sugar does not adhere to live skin

Sugar will exfoliate dead skin cells and grab onto hairs, but will not cause redness of the skin as it does not unnecessarily remove live skin like wax does. The end result is silky soft, smooth skin! Sugar paste is water soluble and live skin cells are wet, therefore sugar paste will not adhere to live skin cells. It is gentle enough to go over the same area more than once to remove more stubborn hair without causing skin trauma & damage. Waxing can produce skin irritation & redness lasting days.

Sugar is sanitary

Sugaring paste is non-comedogenic (will not clog pores) and is hypoallergenic. Bacteria cannot breed in a tub of sugar.

Longer lasting

Sugar paste "hugs" each hair and removes it from its root whereas wax has a high percentage of hair breakage at the skin’s surface. With sugar hair is removed out of the follicle in the natural direction of growth. With wax, clients face early regrowth of hair due to breakage. As the wax hardens on the hair, the tendency to break it off at the skin's surface is much greater.


Sugar is applied at body temperature and will not burn skin. Wax is heated to a high degree so that it is liquefied and easy to spread which can cause burns & scarring on the skin.

Easy clean up

Sugar is easily removed with water. Due to resins contained in wax, chemicals must be used to removed wax residue.
