All natural, eco-friendly and 100% biodegradable, sugaring is a gentler form of hair removal.
History Of Sugaring
This ancient Egyptian method of hair-removal has been around since 1900 BC. It’s popular in neighbouring regions and known as sukkar or halawa in the Middle East, as agda in Turkey and as moum in Iran.
Because these are warmer climates, and in eras long past access to showering, soap and deodorants – among other products for hygiene that we may take for granted today was limited and perhaps more difficult to access back then body hair removal was considered a hygiene practice.
Sugaring parties where women gather and swap stories while removing hair are common in the Middle East.
All Natural Ingredients
Water, sugar and lemon juice are the basic ingredients for sugaring.
How It Works
The sugaring substrate sticks to the hair without attaching to the skin and hair is removed when the sugar is pulled away from the hair. Hair is removed from the follicle and therefore hair will grow back thinner and more sparse.
Who Can Sugar?
Safe to use on all skin types – sugaring can be done on the most sensitive skin.
At Aroma, the used sugar is discarded. It is 100% biodegradable so any residual sugar on your skin can be simply removed with water.
You have up to 6 weeks before you’ll need to come back for another sugaring treatment. Ensure that growth is at least ¼ of an inch.
