Ancient Hair Removal Process - 21st Century Style!

The hair removal industry has been booming over the last decade - clients are spending more and more money on removing unwanted hair - in fact, according to Lucy Peters, hair removal is the 4th most popular minimally-invasive procedure performed!

We have heard from many clients recently about sugaring - the age-old hair removal process that dates back to the times of Cleopatra or before. Many of our clients are interested, some swear by it, and it has piqued our interest too!

This ancient sugar hair removal technique has been used for centuries in the Orient to remove body hair. Made of all-natural products without preservatives or additives gives this formulation the advantage of being water soluble and suitable for all hair removal areas, including facial hair.

Body sugaring is a natural exfoliant that removes dead cells and is worked in the same direction as natural hair growth. This results in a significant reduction of ingrown hairs right from first application until their complete elimination. This is a technique that is different than waxing; it doesn’t require cotton strips and a small amount of sugar can cover a large body area. This hair removal technique is perfect to prevent the risks of cross-contamination, in part because there is no repetitive dipping into the container during the same treatment. The use of gloves is recommended and easy to use making it a pleasant and hygienic service.

Epillyss, the world-renowned wax manufacturer, has now released a line of Sugar Paste to their product lineup! A gentle treatment with a water soluble product, all formulations offered are made of sugar, lemon juice and water, and do not contain chemical additives.


The Épillyss sugar is applied at body temperature; it only adheres to the hair and not to the skin and ensures a comfortable application and gentle removal. We must spread the paste on the area of hair removal in a back and forth movement and remove with a dry and quick flick of the hand to remove the hair follicle.  You must choose the formulation that will suit you; your choice will be done largely depending on the temperature of your hand. Indeed, as the application is done with the fingertips, this will have a great influence on the texture of the sugar paste during application. A cold hand will require a more flexible paste, hot hands will require a harder paste.

DETAILS:
  • Available in Soft, Supple, or Regular formulations
  • 35 oz. microwavable container
  • Excellent for sensitive skin and all hair types (ideally 1/8" - 1/4" hair length)
  • 100% natural - no additives, colors, preservatives, or fragrance
  • Water soluble - easy cleanup
  • Extremely gentle to skin - applies at room temperature

100% NATURAL INGREDIENTS:
Sugar, lemon juice, and water

AVAILABLE FORMULAS (in order of hardness):

Follow the 3-Step Process from Epillyss for The Most Satisfied Wax Clients Ever!

 No two waxers are the same, and Epillyss understands that. That's why Epillyss has designed their full line of waxes, each with varying properties that make it easy to choose a wax that works best with your personal waxing style.

The entire Epillyss waxing line of products has been designed around a 3-step process, to help each and every waxing technician provide the very best depilation service for all of their clients, ensuring technician and client satisfaction, again and again.


STEP 1: PRE-DEPILATORY
The first step in any waxing service is the preparation of the skin for hair removal. Sanitization is an important part of this step, to ensure client's health and safety. In addition, this step is very comforting to your clients, leaving them cleansed and refreshed.
  • Pre-Depilatory Magnolia Gel - Featuring mint essential oil, this pre-depilatory gel sanitizes and numbs the area to be wax, reducing sensitivity by up to 20%.
  • Pre-Depilatory Lotion - Quickly disinfect the skin prior to depilation. This lotion contains benzalconium chloride, known for its powerful antiseptic properties against germs, bacteria, and yeast. This product is alcohol-free, and will not dry the skin or tighten the pores.
  • Pre-Depilatory Microtalc - Apply to sensitive areas to ensure comfort during the waxing service. Epillyss has designed this microtalc especially for waxing purposes, featuring a pure mineral base without fragrance or additives. By applying Microtalc to absorb moisture, the traction on the skin is greatly reduced, resulting in a more comfortable wax service, with less irritation following the depilation.

STEP 2: DEPILATORY
Next comes the heart of the service - the waxing! Epillyss waxes have been developed featuring different characteristics, making each wax a unique solution for estheticians everywhere! Epillyss waxes feature Bioresin C3, and exclusive ingredient formulated by Epillyss. The use of Bioresin C3 allows for a lower level of oil in each Epillyss wax, resulting in ultra-low melting points, quick and fluid application, and many more remarkable benefits.
  • Sensor Wax - Featuring oligo, Sensor wax grips all types of hairs, with reduced traction on the skin. This wax enjoys an ultra-fluid texture, and features extracts of lavender and lemon. Sensor is a favorite for bikini waxes.
  • Novatherm Wax - This shiny "Barbie" wax contains vasodilating properties, making this the perfect wax for short or stubborn hair removal. Full of trace elements, Novatherm enjoys an exceptionally fluid gel consistency which allows for a very efficient wax.
  • Millenia Wax - Featuring lavender essential oil, this wax is not only a beautiful color, but it minimizes pain, redness, and soreness due to its vasodilating and calming properties. This strong wax is idea for bikini and underarm waxes.
  • Chocolat Wax - Cocoa is an integral ingredient in the Chocolat Wax, which provides vitamin E and antioxidant properties to prevent skin dehydration during the depilation services. The chocolate fragrance is comforting, and the creamy gel consistency applies thin, allowing for a very efficient wax.
  • Sensitive Skin Wax - Featuring a high natural level of vitamins, proteins, mineral salts, and oligio elements, the Sensitive Skin wax stimulates the skin and tightens the pores after depilation, assisting in minimizing ingrown hairs. While this wax is good for all skin and hair types, it is especially recommended for those with sensitive skin. Added sea collagen ensure the skin is moisturized and left feeling silky soft.
  • Natural Honey Wax - A natural antiseptic, the healing properties of honey have been recognized for at least 4,000 years. This wax is fluid, easy to apply, and ideal for all skin and hair types. 
  • White Queen Wax - Epillyss' #1 selling wax, White Queen is milky and easy-to-apply. Featuring zinc oxide, which is known for its antiseptic and purifying properties, this wax is perfect for sensitive skin.
  • Azulen Wax - Apple Green in color, this wax contains German Chamomile to calm and soothe the skin during the waxing process. This wax has a liquid consistency, and is very easy to apply.

STEP 3: POST-DEPILATORY
Every story needs a great ending, and your waxing service does too! During the waxing process, the layer of dead skin cells are removed along with the hair, sometimes leaving the skin red, sore, and inflamed. The Post-Depilatory step is designed to soothe this aggravated skin, while removing any wax residue and moisturizing the skin as well. Again, Epillyss nods to esthetician's differences, and offers post-depilatory products in creams, oils, or gels. Choose your favorite!
  • Post-Depilatory Azulene Oil - This anti-inflammatory oil was developed to gently remove wax residue while calming and soothing freshly waxed skin. This versatile, best-selling oil can be mixed with the Aloe Post-Depilatory Gel, Vitamin E Post-Depilatory Cream, or Collagen Post-Depilatory Milk to amp up the hydration results.
  • Post-Depilatory Collagen Milk - Hydrate, tone, and sooth freshly waxed skin with this moisturizing powerhouse! Containing vitamins, proteins, mineral salts, and micronutrients,  Epillyss Collagen Milk is not only perfect to drench the skin in moisture after waxing, but try it during your manicures and pedicures, too!
  • Aloe Post-Depilatory Gel - A Pure Spa Direct FAVORITE - this Aloe Gel is ideal for post-depilatory soothing and healing. The cooling effect of aloe is extremely soothing to irritated skin, and it leaves your client feeling, cool, refreshed, and moisturized.

Dare To Be Bare! - Skin Care Tips for Your Best Waxing Results

Waxing is huge this time of year and you want to make sure that you are doing all the necessary prepping and skin care before and after all your waxing services for the perfect wax!

First, you want to make sure the skin is clean. When a client comes in with oil, sweat, and bacteria on their skin, without proper sanitation, the client can easily break out after waxing and the end result will not be as successful. Preparation is simple. A great product to use would be the Cirepil Blue Lotion. This lotion has excellent cleansing properties due to its low alcohol content (9%), and it leaves the skin with a pleasant, comfortable feeling. After cleansing the skin, the Cirepil Pre-Depilatory Oil is a great product to use, as it will condition the skin and create a protective barrier to ensure wax adheres to the hair and not the skin.

Another great item to use during the prepping stage would be the Relax & Wax NO Scream Cream. Your clients will want to apply this cream 30-45 minutes prior to the waxing service, making NO Scream Cream the perfect retail item to sell to all of your regular waxing clients! The No Scream Cream eases the discomfort of waxing as much as 50-90% and will not interfere with standard wax formulas.

Pre-Wax Products
Now you're ready to wax! Once you have performed the waxing service, don't forget about post wax care! This is very important for your clients' overall comfort after the service, as well as for the best results. A product I highly recommend is the Mancine Ingrown(zone) Triple Action Post Depilatory Lotion. This lotion leaves the skin feeling refreshed and moisturized, prevent ingrown hairs, and will actually slow and soften future hair growth so waxing becomes easier and more comfortable. Also, for your clients who are prone to ingrown hairs, the Mancine Ingrown(zone) Cream works wonders as a spot treatment!

Post-Wax Products
It is also very important to educate your clients about what to AVOID for the next 24 hours after the waxing service:

Avoid for 24 hours after waxing service:
  • Sun/Tanning Beds
  • Makeup, if face is waxed
  • Swimming - Chlorinated Water (pool water) and Salt Water
  • Hot Water, Saunas
  • Deodorant with Aluminum
  • Salt Glow or stimulating body or facial treatments
  • Tight Clothing for legs/bikini (No Pantyhose) for 48 hours
  • Exercise
Also, recommend that the client exfoliate (starting 2 days after service) to help avoid ingrown hairs.  A really great exfoliating product is the Desert Mineral Detox Body Scrub - Anti-Cellulite Formula by Extended Vacation. Many of our clients also like to retail Exfoliating Massage Gloves or Loofahs to their clients to help minimize ingrown hairs!

Happy Waxing! =)

Be Pleasantly Surprised by Epillyss Sensitive Skin Wax

After seeing an unusual snow storm in October, and millions of people in the Northeast out of power for nearly a week after, I didn't think that anything could surprise me anymore. Boy was I mistaken!

On a whim, after an awesome conversation with a client the other day, I bought a can of Epillyss Sensitive Skin Wax to try. I wax because it is convenient to not have to touch a razor for a couple of weeks, but waxes don't usually blow me away. I'm of the "waxing is a form of inhumane torture" mindset, but the Epillyss Sensitive Skin wax is AHHHH-MAZING!

Formulated with natural pine resin, beeswax, and accented with Marine Collagen and Citronella, this milky, butterscotch-colored wax leaves the skin silky smooth and hair free - with little to no discomfort! Your clients will ADORE your waxing services performed with this wax! Perfect for all skin and hair types, but specially formulated to be gentle on the most sensitive skin, this wax should be a staple for any waxer!

Azulene Wax: The Next Generation in Depilatory Products

When considering that vast array of beauty enhancing services that spas and salons offer, I think that everyone can agree that waxing is one of the least pleasant experiences of them all. Before being exposed to the bevy of elite products that Pure Spa Direct offers, my depilatory experience consisted of Honey Wax, Honey Wax, and more Honey Wax. As a person with dry, sensitive skin, I thought I was fated to a life of painful waxing and ingrown hairs. Such was the case until I tried the Epillyss Azulen Lukewarm Wax with Essential Oils.

While the whole Epillyss line is utterly fantastic, the Azulene formula is my particular favorite. It is a strip wax that is Apple Green in color and it is formulated with Natural Pine Resin, Liquid Paraffin, Azulen, and Citronella Oil. The paraffin helps moisturize the skin while the Azulen adds anti-inflammatory properties. Azulen is a derivative of the camomile flower, known everywhere for its soothing properties.

During the waxing session, what I specifically experienced was a smooth application and even smoother removal process. The hair came out very easily and no post-wax tweezing was needed. Unlike the average honey wax, all of the Epillyss waxes are specifically formulated to cling to the hair, not the skin. The result is less painful session for the client and a less strenuous session for the professional. A happy client comes back for repeat business, plus she brings friends!

While the Epillyss line is slightly more expensive than the average honey wax, I strongly recommend looking into making the switch. You will find that the few extra dollars you pay up front will reap increased profits and help ensure happy and loyal customers. Make the switch today and stand out from the crowd!

BONUS Recommendation:
If you are not ready to make the commitment to a new line, you can purchase the Epillyss Trial Wax Pack. It contains 6 - 4 ounce jars of the most popular wax formulas. You can test them out, see which you like, then decide what you would like to put in your salon or spa. Please see below for the link:
