Body sugaring is a safe, effective, non-chemical way to remove unwanted hair.
We sugar all parts of the body (from the brows down) for both men and women. It’s especially awesome for tattoos, as it doesn’t damage any pigmented areas.
You’ll enjoy better results, less pain, and fewer ingrown hairs than waxing. Hair reduction over time is comparable to laser. It’s convenient, too: you need less than a week’s growth after shaving.
Make an appointment and see for yourself.

Body sugaring is better than waxing. For all kinds of reasons.
Sugaring is more effective than waxing. Shaving, too. Short hair, long hair. Coarse hair, fine hair. Sugar encapsulates each strand and removes it by the root. It’s less painful than waxing, lasts longer, and requires about 1/3 the recovery time. And don’t even try to compare it to shaving: razor burn, prickly grow out, nicks, and 5 o’clock shadow will all be distant memories.
Sugaring lasts longer. When you get sugared, hair is extracted in the direction of hair growth. Sugar gets all the way to the root, instead of breaking the hair off at skin level (like shaving, waxing, or other depilatories). Remove at the root, and you get additional days – even weeks – before hair is visible again. And since the roots (follicles) themselves are damaged, it’s more difficult for your body to produce new hair. Growth is slowed. Hair becomes more fine and sparse. Appointments go faster.
It’s safe for sensitive skin. Wax can damage or burn your skin. Sugar paste adheres only to hair and dead skin cells – the stuff you want to get rid of. It’s applied at body temperature, so there is no risk of burning or rashes. Wax is applied at high temperatures, and takes up to three layers of live skin cells with it.
Sugar is more sanitary. Say goodbye to cross-contamination. No double-dipping. Service providers are always gloved. Sugar doesn’t harbor bacteria, and everything rinses easily with water.
It’s the newest craze in hair removal. That said, body sugaring is actually one of the oldest techniques known to man. It can be documented as far back as 1900 BC.
Made by hand from USDA Organic ingredients. Cane sugar, lemon juice, and water; no additives, fillers, or fragrances. It’s delicious and compostable.
You’ll never miss an appointment. If you live outside the Treasure Valley, on-location services are readily available. Sofie travels from Sun Valley to Australia – and everywhere in between – for those dedicated to sugar’s effects. Reach out and discuss schedules and fees.
Before Your Appointment
Start exfoliating. Gently exfoliate the area to be sugared every day, up until the day prior to your appointment. Any closer and you can increase irritation.
Get your workout in. Do your exercising before your appointment. Wait 12-24 hours to exercise afterward.
Clean up. Shower the day of your service, preferably after your workout. Skip any oil-based moisturizer. (Water-based is ok.)
Plan ahead. If you’re nervous about pain, take an ibuprofen or OTC painkiller about 30 minutes before your appointment. Don’t have that last drink – too much alcohol will make the session more painful.
Your follicles will be open, and your skin will be sensitive. For the first 24 hours:
Shower with cooler water than usual. Refrain from tanning, hot-tubs, steam rooms, and saunas. Heat increases inflammation.
Wait to exercise. Sweat breeds bacteria, which increases the chances of ingrown hairs.
Moisturize your skin daily, while skin is damp. It helps with product absorption.
Gently exfoliate three times a week, beginning two-three days after your appointment. It’s best to use a nylon gloves or towels; loofahs and washcloths harbor bacteria.
Drink plenty of water.
Exercise. Exercise promotes circulation, which improves skin tone. Healthy skin recovers faster.
Protect with SPF. Fresh, exfoliated skin burns easily.
