Aqua Natural Ltd was established in 1988 by husband and wife team Rosie & Hafiz Khandwala. We were the first to introduce strip sugaring form of hair removal to the UK. The use of sugar paste for removing body hair has always been a preferred practice amongst Indian, North African and Middle Eastern women. Having discovered a gap in the market we started manufacturing to supply salons and for retail. The advantage of strip sugaring is that the application is very similar to wax but with an added benefit that it is made from completely natural ingredients and is water soluble.
Our product is unique as we use an exclusive blend of sugar syrups. This gives the product a smooth and consistent texture for application and a longer shelf life. Making sugaring is an art. To get the right blend and efficacy to grip hair can be tricky! Each batch is monitored and tested to get the right consistency. We are currently the only ones manufacturing with this blend without adding any additives or preservatives Lots of waxes are made with chemicals and resins. We feel that this natural alternative is gentle on skin and kind to the environment as its completely bio degradable. We contract manufactured for The Body Shop for 17 years (1991-2008), unfortunately the product was later discontinued by L'Oreal. Our new brand Sugar StripEase was launched in 2009 and has two ancillary products Sugar StripEase Talc which is a pharmaceutical grade talc (non fragrance) and Sugar StripEase Soothing Mist which is an after spray to calm and cool the skin after depilation. Sugar StripEase is certified by Cruelty Free International, PETA and the Vegan society
