Why is sugar paste softer than wax?
Both methods of depilation – with sugar paste and wax – are mechanical methods of removing unwanted hair, consisting in pulling the hair out with its bulb. During application, the paste is spread against the grain. As a result, it sticks to the hair itself, not the skin underneath. A quick pull pulls out unwanted hairs without exposing the skin to micro-injuries. Wax, on the other hand, sticks to the hair and to the skin, which may lead to the removal of the top layer of the callous epidermis, and thus, in the event of unskillful performance, to more severe sensations during the treatment.
