Sugaring hair removal is almost as old as civilisation itself. The ancient Egyptians and Romans used to remove their body hair by using a paste made of sugar. For some unknown reason the practice was almost lost in the middle ages, and it is just now that we are rediscovering the advantages of Sugaring.
What is Sugaring hair removal?
Sugaring or Sugar Waxing is a form of epilation very similar to waxing, however there are some major differences that make it a far better hair removal method.
Sugaring vs Waxing
- Waxing products are made from resins that adhere to the skin cells. When the wax is pulled the skin is irritated. The sugar paste is made of natural products (sugar, water, lemon) that do not adhere to live skin cells, therefore when it is removed, it only gently exfoliates dead skin cells.
- Sugar paste can be easily removed with water if accidentally spilled on clothing or other surfaces. Wax is sticky and oily and can only be removed with chemical solvents causing a mess and damaging fabrics.
- Waxing removes the hair against the natural direction of growth causing pain and breakage. In Sugar Waxing the hair is removed in the direction of growth diminishing pain and discomfort and reducing breakage.
- Sugaring helps eliminate ingrown hairs. It penetrates deep into the hair follicle lubricating the hair and removing dead skin cells which clog the pores.
- Sugaring only needs 1.5mm of hair growth
- Sugaring is 100% antibacterial and fragrance free
- Sugar Waxing can be applied at room temperature, so it does not burn the skin

“The story behind why we developed ‘Revival Masque’ is that this was my first step in the mission I have to make a skin care product that would be like a ‘face lift in a bottle’. I know that this is a preposterous idea, but as a dreamer I decided to pursue it.” Dr. Des Fernandes Environ’s ‘Revival Masque’ has a unique combination of revolutionary ingredients: Asiatic, Mandelic and Lactic Acid that make the skin appear more luminous, smoother and revitalised.
- Asiatic Acid stimulates growth factors that are important in the regenerative processes of the skin, facilitating the regeneration of the collagen matrix.
