Honey has been used in many beauty treatments for centuries because of its great health benefits and even Egyptian woman used a sticky emulsion made of oil and honey, similar to what we now call “sugaring” to remove hair from their body.
In 1520, Bassano de Zra wrote: “The Turks consider it sinful when a woman lets the hair on her private parts grow. As soon as a woman feels the hair is growing, she hurries to the public bath to have it removed or remove it herself again with the use of heated honey, sugar and essential oil.
This method of hair removal has been around for sometime and is the most natural way of doing so. At serenity we are devoted to using only natural ingredients in all our products.
