While you might understand the benefits of choosing to eat organic food, few of us have actually sat down and taken the time to understand what organic wax really is. In most cases, we assume organic means better, and when it comes to wax this is certainly true, but what are the real benefits of choosing organic wax over regular wax? Read on to find out…
1.It’s gentle even on sensitive skin
More traditional and dated waxing methods are a complete no-go for those with sensitive skin. Causing redness, itching and in some cases rashes, the artificial ingredients used in other methods of waxing can cause sensitive skin to flare up. Organic wax is much more gentle on the skin, making it ideal for those with sensitive skin.
2. Organic wax creates a smoother finish and isn’t as painful as traditional waxing
Organic wax is far more efficient at grabbing every tiny little hair and removing it freely from the hair follicle. Applied directly to the skin, organic wax creates a close film on the skin, trapping the hairs right from the base of the root so that they can be swiftly removed. This means there isn’t a need to go back over areas, resulting in a quicker less painful wax that’s also super smooth.
3. It contains natural and nourishing ingredients
More generic waxes typically contain chemicals and artificial ingredients, which aren’t great for the skin. Organic wax not only effectively removes the hair, it also nourishes the skin. Containing natural and organic ingredients, organic wax is ideal for almost all skin types.
4. It reduces the chance of ingrown hairs
For anyone that has had a traditional waxing treatment before, you will be well aware that ingrown hairs can be a side effect. High quality organic wax reduces the chances of developing ingrown hairs. In addition, all good treatments should end with applying a cream that will further discourage ingrown hairs. This generally means you will get a better result from your waxing treatment, and won’t suffer from some of the problematic side effects of waxing.
5. Organic wax results in less inflammation and irritation
As previously mentioned above, organic wax is ideal for sensitive skin as it contains natural ingredients that are kind to the skin. No matter what your skin type, nobody wants to come away from a wax with redness that lasts for hours and leads to inflammation and irritation that’s difficult to manage. Organic wax limits this, by being kinder to the skin, providing nourishment to limit irritation.
As you can see, there are many benefits to choosing organic wax over regular wax. With an organic waxing treatment, your skin can be fuzz free, smooth and with minimal redness.
