5 Reasons Why Sugaring is Eco-Friendly
Not only is sugaring as hair removal better for your skin, but it is also much more eco-friendly (and less expensive) than other hair removal methods like shaving, waxing, or toxic hair creams.
We will give you 5 reasons why sugaring is better for you and the environment. Keep reading to see if sugaring is a sustainable beauty choice you can incorporate into your life.
5 reasons why sugaring is a sustainable choice
1. Natural Ingredients
Sugaring wax is made out of natural ingredients, not chemicals or plastics like most waxes. Products like hair removal creams use chemicals to melt the hair off your body. The cream doesn’t just stop at the follicle, but also deteriorates the skin and puts you at risk for chemical burns, and we definitely don’t want you to get burned.
2. Ingredients are Biodegradable
Our sugaring wax is not only made from natural ingredients, but the ingredients are biodegradable, which means you can ditch it in your compost bin. It is made almost entirely of sugar! Sugar comes from the earth and can return to the earth with no harm.
3. Sugaring is Zero Waste
The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that 2 billion razors and refill blades get tossed into landfills each year. That's a lot of plastic that will never break down and is not recyclable because of the metal components.
Razors are not the only culprit, wax strips end up in landfills too. What's even worse is the wax that hardens without the strips, which is basically made of plastic, also known as rosin or polymers.
Sugaring is zero waste because it doesn’t require strips or spatulas and can be reused 8-10 times. Did we mention our other products are packaged in glass or paper?
4. Sugaring wax is water soluble
Sugaring wax is made of mostly just sugar, it is water soluble, which makes cleaning up so easy. Just wash it right off with water. Unlike conventional wax which is typically made from oils and plastics and requires a lot of elbow grease to be cleaned up.
When you wash off your sugar residue down the drain there are no chemicals entering our water sources. Learn more about how sugaring helps to save water.
5. It’s Reusable
Sugaring wax is reusable. The first few times you use it you can probably get 8-10 uses out of one lump but once you master the technique you can reuse one lump to clear a whole body part. That means that one jar of Glow Goop does the work of 8 jars of conventional wax.
Our mission is to not only help people remove unwanted hair but to remove that hair simply, safely and as easily as possible.
I challenge you to make a sustainable swap in your beauty routine. Toss the razor or skip the wax and give sugaring a try with the Bare Body Essentials.
Because in the end, sugaring benefits you and mother earth 🌎
