Waxing


Waxing is a procedure for temporarily removing hair from either small or large areas of the body. Hair is physically removed from the follicle in this procedure by applying wax. The procedure typically needs to be repeated once in 3 to 4 weeks (depending on the individual) and is one of the most common ways to remove hair. The other common methods include shaving, hair removal creams, plucking, threading.



Body Waxing

Types of Wax:


Basic Waxes are traditional waxes made from simple ingredients like sugar, which are then chemically processed into a thick jelly that liquefies with heating. But they can irritate the skin, leaving redness (may be scars) and are not suitable for very sensitive skin. Also, the stripping process can be painful. Liposoluble Waxes are advanced depilation products made from a mixture of resin extracts and/or vegetable oils and incorporate four main characteristics. As a result, this wax is more expensive.


  • Moisturizing and nourishment are provided by the natural vegetable oils and beeswax within,
  • Superior yet delicate gripping strength is provided by Glyceryl Rosinate, which is non-allergic,
  • An easy and gentle spread is provided by Titanium Dioxide, which also soothes and reduces redness by venting out the extra heat,
  • Properties that aid healing, smooth finishing are provided by zinc oxide, an anti-inflammatory.


  • Sugar Wax
