What is Sugaring?

What is Sugaring and what is the SIMPLY Sugar System?


Sugaring is a hair removal method that dates back to ancient times. The Egyptians were the first to remove hair with sugar. Sugaring is a form of hair removal that extracts the entire hair from the follicle in the natural direction of growth using an all natural paste of sugar, water, and lemon. It has no artificial colors, preservatives or resins. It is very hypoallergenic and gentle on the skin. Sugar is by nature anti-bacterial and contains healing properties. Simply Sugar is applied at body temperature and can be removed from the skin, clothing and any other surface with plain water.

Here are some amazing facts about sugaring and the SIMPLY Sugar System:

Sugaring does not tear the skin nor remove any layers of the epidermis which does occur with waxing.


The hair length can be very short – as short as 1/16th of an inch. No more waiting for the hair to grow to an unsightly length before it can be removed. And, because the hair can be removed at such a short length, it will take much longer to grow back. No messy strips either!

Sugaring can lead to permanent hair removal. By removing the hair in the first stage of growth, the follicle wall will begin to weaken which will cause the hair to grow back thinner and finer each time and eventually the follicle wall will collapse. This leads to a follicle that is unable to produce a hair in the future. This is a very good thing!
