Body Sugaring Making a Resurgence in Modern Times

Body Sugaring Making a Resurgence in Modern Times

Tuesday, July 6th 2004

Ancient Egyptians, both men and women, valued a smooth, hair free body and legend has it that they developed the art of Body Sugaring as a natural method of hair removal. It involved the making of sticky, taffy like paste from natural ingredients such as sugar, lemon and water. Sugaring has seen a resurgence in recent times primarily due to the fact that:

* It is a natural formulation, free from any harsh additives.

* Unlike shaving or harsh depilatory creams, sugaring removes hair from the roots. This provides for long lasting results and typically it is up to 6 weeks, before significant re-growth of hair is noticed.

* After the hair removal, cleaning up is gentle on the skin requiring only warm water.

* Unlike traditional waxing, the product adheres strongly to the hair but not to the skin. Therefore, when it is pulled off, there is significantly less discomfort. Users estimate that the level of discomfort is as much as 75% less than waxing.

In addition to lemon, bodEze has enhanced the age-old tradition of Body Sugaring with a unique modern combination of Kiwifruit and Aloe Vera. The products have been formulated as warm gels to open the pores making hair removal effective and effortless. The gel is an all body formulation and combined with the innovative bodEze strips, removes hair by the roots with minimal discomfort for smooth hair free skin. The fresh fragrances will delight and invigorate your senses while the antioxidants will protect your skin against the effects of oxidation. The bodEze range of sugaring products includes Body Beautiful and the Facial Gel with watermelon extract is a special formulation for the effective removal of Facial hair.

The hygienic bodEze Hair Removal Strips are non-porous, making hair removal effortless. The strips can be easily disposed of by rolling them up with the gel on the inside so that no seepage occurs, or they can be instantly reused by washing them in warm water and by wiping them dry on a towel. An important routine with sugaring is exfoliating the skin regularly to remove dead skin cells. This pack includes an exfoliating cloth.

Today, more than ever before, effective long term hair removal solutions are in demand by both men and women and is a reflection of the active sporty lifestyles and the image consciousness of modern society.
