    Why are Your Wax Formulas Important? 

    When going into a waxing appointment, your clients want to know that they’re not only about receiving the best hair removal but that they’ll have the most comfortable experience possible. After all, without the best formula or right technique, waxing can be irritating or painful - especially for those with sensitive skin types.  

    When shopping around for waxing products to add to your salon’s repertoire, you should of course look for formulas that work for a variety of skin and hair types, and look out for specific specialty formulas that will work for clients with sensitivities or skin that’s prone to inflammation.

     So what should you be looking for when it comes to formula offerings? You should look for a variety of go-to formulas that can handle both large application areas and that work on a range of skin types. Look for one or two specialty formulas, depending on the client volume you serve both in general and how many clients you serve with sensitive skin.

    Some of the best formulas for general services include Starpil’s Stripless Blue Film Hard Wax, which is formulated for perfect use on large areas and allows those with normal skin types to enjoy amazing results. For smaller areas or those with both normal and sensitive skin, Stripless Pink Film Hard Wax is another great go-to, especially for intimate or facial waxing.

    For specialty formulas, Starpil’s Starsoft and Calendula Hard Wax formulas are made with hypersensitive skin, or those prone to inflammation or acne after waxing.

    Our Vegan Hard Wax formula is also perfect for those with sensitive skin or who are looking for waxing without the use of animal products.

    Using the right waxing formulas for your clients makes all the difference in providing them with the best hair removal and in keeping their skin in its best condition. Using high-quality waxes that are easy to work with and are suited specifically to your clients’ skin types will allow your entire service to be a win-win for both them and you!

    What Wax Ingredients are Good for Skin?

    When choosing the right waxing formulas for your salon and individual services, you’ll want to go beyond just looking into which skin types these formulas are designed for, or how easy to use or apply they are (though you should always make a point to prioritize this, as well!). 

    When looking at the ingredients in your waxing products, you’ll want to look for those that enhance or provide benefits to the skin, and who go beyond just removing hair. 

    Though not all formulas will include all of the below ingredients, those with sensitive skin can particularly benefit from the vitamins or nourishment some of these elements provide. Ingredients that can help the skin in waxing formulas include:

  • Olive Oil: Olive oil is high in vitamins A, E, D, and K, and is known to hydrate, moisturize, and even repair dry or damaged skin. 
  • Tamanu Oil: This hydrating oil has been used in the past to heal wounds and treat acne. Rich in antioxidants and vitamins, this oil is used in waxing products like Starpil’s Starsoft Soft Strip Wax to ease inflammation and redness, and to promote skin regeneration and collagen production. 
  • Starsoft Soft Wax

  • Coconut Oil: This highly moisturizing ingredient hydrates, heals, and calms irritated skin, while also smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, and signs of aging. 
  • Almond Oil: Almond oil has been used in skincare routines to treat dry skin and acne, as well as to improve and even complexion or scarring. 
  • Sunflower Seed Oil: Containing vitamin E, oleic acid, and linoleic acid, this oil helps to unclog pores and deeply moisturize while protecting skin from bacteria. It’s also used in formulas like Starpil’s Vegan Hard Wax to nourish dry skin during waxing. 
  • These ingredients are just some of the ones you’ll want to look out for in waxing formulas, especially in specialty formulas that will be used on clients with skin sensitivities

    When heading to the waxing salon, your clients might not initially expect to reap skin benefits from waxing, but they’ll be pleasantly surprised to receive waxing’s hair removal benefits with skincare benefits to sweeten the deal.
