Body Sugar vs. Wax
People often ask us, “Is there really a difference between waxing and sugaring?” The answer is yes, and quite a bit actually…
AP Sugaring Products are very different from waxing products
Sugaring unwanted facial and body hair requires an entirely different mind-set and approach from waxing. For instance, did you know…
AP sugaring products do not adhere to live skin cells…
This is one of the major differences between sugaring and waxing legs and other more sensitive areas. Wax products are made of resins which adhere to skin cells. Because wax sticks to any surface it is applied to, pulling it away causes unwarranted pain. Alexandria Professional® sugaring products never adhere to live skin cells on bodies, faces, or legs. Therefore, when it is removed, it only gently exfoliates dead skin cells, leaving behind silky smooth skin.
Additionally, because AP sugaring paste is all natural and water soluble, it can be easily rinsed away if needed.
AP sugaring technique extracts hair in its natural direction of growth…
When waxing legs and bodies, you remove the hair against the natural direction of growth causing undue levels of pain. With Alexandria Professional®’s sugaring method, you only remove the hair in the natural direction of the hair growth. Plus, through the Alexandria sugaring application technique, the sugar paste seeps into the hair follicle. This helps lubricate the hair root regardless of whether it’s on the legs or anywhere else on your client.
These two facts alone make a world of difference in comfort for the client. This is especially important for clients who have suffered in the past with waxing in sensitive areas.
The healthy difference between AP’s natural sugar pastes versus chemicals for waxing legs and bodies…
Alexandria Professional® Sugaring Paste is all natural. It’s even edible and delicious. Our sugar pastes are very safe and skin friendly.
Most products used for waxing legs and full bodies are made from petroleum based resins and chemicals making them prone to contamination or cross contamination.
No risk of burning sensitive skin areas with AP sugaring…
Waxing the legs or other areas on a client using hot wax runs the risk of burning sensitive skin. There’s just no way around that. While women are used to this risk, men are often intimidated by the idea of hot wax on their chest, legs, face, or back.
AP sugaring is performed at body temperature. Alexandria Professional® advanced sugar pastes adhere to the hair, not the skin, and lubricate the root for easier extraction from the follicle. Combined with the hair removal in the natural direction of growth, AP sugaring means a much more comfortable experience for everyone.
