Making the change from shaving to sugaring can feel like a big jump to make! For many people coming of age, shaving is often one of the first of the hair removal options they are exposed to. It’s very easy to find the aisle of razors at your local drug store; an assortment of plastic jelly bean hues that are presented as the cheap go to for whisking away any pesky hairs. But there is a sinister side to that familiar "friend" you’ve always known...
If you go through 1 razor a week for up-keeping stubble free skin, you’d use about 52 in a year. Dulled and unusable disposable razors have to be chucked into the trash, since they are not recyclable. And on top of that, they are non biodegradable. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that 2 billion razors are thrown away in 1 year, and ends up not only in landfills but in our oceans as well. We can ALL agree that contributing even more to the planet's current fragile state is the last thing we want to do.
The constant upkeep of having to shave on a daily basis to maintain your smooth skin is hazardous to you as well. It’s quite abrasive and hard to do! You must contort into a pretzel to get to those hard to reach areas, plus occasionally nicking or cutting yourself is literally unavoidable. Shaving also leads to an increase of irritated skin, ingrown hairs, razor burn, and even premature aging of skin in some cases due to the damage caused by it.
And now bringing the true hair removing star to the stage, sugaring! Sugar Plum uses a sugar paste to remove hair, and our paste was the first USDA grade sugar paste to enter the scene! It resembles caramel, possesses an amber hue, and is made of 3 gentle, natural and organic ingredients: sugar, water and citric acid. The concoction is water soluble, melting away with the rub of a damp cloth. Since it’s made of these earth derived ingredients, it’s biodegradable! Sugaring hair removal is also easy on the skin. You can count on it to never give you razor burns, scrapes or cuts. It’s a GREAT option for those with extra sensitive skin. And due to it’s gentle exfoliation properties, you can also be assured that it will aid you with avoiding ingrown hairs and irritation. You can say goodbye to daily maintenance once you switch teams. When you start sugaring you won’t have to even THINK about your body hair for a few weeks. Have we persuaded you to join Sugar Plum yet?
