Sugar Sugar has launched with an at-home, reusable, sugaring hair removal product, while Qür has launched with a line of lip balms. In addition, Ultraceuticals Skincare has announced its U.S. launch.
The Sugar Sugar Wax Collection debuted with four products:
Clean Slate–Micellar Cleansing Water: This incredibly gentle formula removes impurities, removes makeup and aids in the prevention of breakouts. It can be used to balance the moisture and pH level of the skin is critical for sugaring prep.
Detox Dust–Moisture Absorbing Powder: This powder helps keep moisture and sweat toxins at bay. Packaged in a recyclable paper shaker, this talc-free powder contains kaolin clay powder, baking soda, tapioca starch, chamomile flower powder, as well as lime, grapefruit, bergamot and frankincense pure essential oils.
Glow Goop–Sugar Hair Remover and Exfoliant: A sugar wax made of three natural food-grade ingredients: cane sugar, water and lemon juice. The formula adheres only to dead cells, which make up hair, fuzz and dead skin.
Silk Slip–Face and Body Serum: This triple hyaluronic acid serum was created for use on both the face and body. This finishing product provides a nourishing barrier to moisturize and protect freshly waxed skin.
All Sugar Sugar products are packaged in 100% recyclable packaging, leaving behind zero carbon footprint.
Sugar Sugar Wax founder, Salome Sallehy, said, “It all started in Australia while I was traveling with my family and met my Sugar Guru who would ultimately change my life. This woman showed me that one doesn’t have to suffer through painful waxing, and that there was a safe, natural, and gentle way to get rid of unwanted hair-sugaring! During my travels, I learned sugaring is as much of an art, as it is a science, and I not only became empowered by it but determined to pay it forward.”
Qür debuted with two types of lip balms. The products are formulated with shea butter, almond oil, jojoba oil and coconut oil, and feature SPF 15 defense. They are also free of parabens, PEGs, phthalates, silicones and sulfates, and are not animal-tested.
