Here in the UK we are a nation of waxer’s with Beauty Salons nationwide offering waxing treatments in abundance.
Waxing In salons brings a huge revenue and has clients returning for treatments every 4 to 6 weeks. For many women waxing is a necessity not a luxury.
So although clients will return regularly and bring profits to the salon, waxing does not come without it’s pitfalls to both the salon and the client.
All wax whether it be warm or hot wax contain chemicals such as Paraffin and plastic Resins and need to be heated to temperatures between 55 to 70 Degrees which can cause skin irritation, Burns, grazing, itching and extreme erythema( Redness of the skin). Wax can adhere to healthy skin, so when removed clients will experience a stinging, ripping sensation which can be painful. Hair is also yanked from the follicle in the opposite direction of growth which can distort the hair and cause in growing hairs and cause the skin to have a plucked chicken effect.
Sugaring treatments are far less painful for the client and have so many benefits for both client and therapist, so why are so many salons not offering this service to their clients?
I believe this is because very few therapists have been introduced to sugaring treatments and the benefits when embarking on a beauty career, as very few training providers have this as an option on their curriculum
The History and benefits Of Sugaring
Sugaring, sugar waxing or Persian waxing is a method of hair removal that has been in use since 1900 BC. Historically, sugar was confined to the regions surrounding Persia until the first millennium AD. Sugaring has been used in homes in the middle east for many years.
Gradually it is reaching Europe and the U.K, yet still so many women still have no idea of the endless benefits to sugaring over waxing treatments.
Sugaring is often compared to standard waxing treatment, however the similarities stop at hair being removed from the follicle. During the process of a sugaring treatment, the sugar paste sticks to and removes hair without attaching to the skin. The paste is be applied at room temperature or heated to a luke warm temperature, minimizing the risk of burns or grazing of the skin.
Sugar itself is hypoallergenic ,anti bacterial and anti fungal, therefore makes for a much more hygienic and comfortable treatment with limited skin irritation or redness occurring.

What Makes Scandinavian skin candy unique?
Skin Candy have a patented ingredient Xylitol in all their pastes. By adding Xylitol to all Scandinavian Skin Candy treatment pastes, the hair removal is easier than ever before! There is less redness and irritation of skin than with traditional pastes and just one ball of paste remains flexible to use for the whole body unlike other pastes that become brittle and unworkable after a short amount of time. Xylitol is very effective as a moisturiser and by using this special natural ingredient in the pastes, the skin is left feeling smoother and more moisturised after the treatment. Xylitol is categorised as a polyalcohol or sugar alcohol. According to extensive researches Xylitol has numerous health benefits too. Xylitol is antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal. Xylitol fights candida, yeast, and other fungal infections. It is also alkalising ,and therefore it helps to maintain the body pH balance.
