If you’re buying soft wax for your salon, you likely need to know which wax is the best for the skin types your clients have. Every client is different, meaning that any professional worker in a salon will have a variety of waxes on hand — and know exactly what to use when taking a close look at a client’s goals and current skin condition.
At Beauty Image USA, we offer a variety of luxury soft waxes so you can find the perfect one for each client. Here are some recommendations based on skin type.
Which Wax is Best for Your Client’s Normal Skin?
Those with normal skin types have the best luck. They often have a much easier time finding products that will not irritate or dry out their skin and don’t need to worry about combatting excessive oils. If your client has normal skin, consider one of the following waxes.
Natural Honey Can
The Natural Honey Can is sought-after for its gold color and smooth, thin, and honey-like texture. It does not contain Mineral Oil, allowing the wax to operate at body temperature. It doesn’t dry or leave any residue, giving your client a gentler waxing experience.
Azulene Wax contains the ultimate anti-inflammatory compound extracted from chamomile and yarrow flowers: azulene. Azulene’s analgesic and detoxifying properties soothe even the most sensitive dry skin when waxing. This soft blue wax is thin and translucent in texture, so it’s ideal for all skin types.
This pearlescent, fragrance-free soft wax is formulated with natural resins. The gel-like texture leaves the skin soft and luminous. It offers smooth and effective hair removal on all hair types. This may be your preferred choice if you’re wondering which wax is good for both the face and body.
Which Soft Wax is Best for Your Clients With Sensitive Skin?
Clients with sensitive skin will likely have many questions and concerns about anything you will put on their skin. Our products are great for individuals with sensitive skin, but here are our favorites.
Pink Créme Can
Our Pink Crème soft wax effectively removes unwanted hair and softens and soothes the skin. Our creamiest soft wax is formulated with titanium dioxide for gentle hair removal. It includes castor seed oil, which relieves dryness and soothes inflammation.
Lavender Créme Can
Infused with lavender essential oil, this soft wax promotes skin healing with antibacterial, moisturizing, and anti-inflammatory properties. It has a creamy texture and is hypoallergenic, making it a great option for sensitive skin.
Experience the benefits of our creamy white soft wax, infused with the exceptional moisturizing and nourishing properties of Shea Butter. This wax is formulated with Shea Butter and cocoa oil to hydrate and soothe dry skin while removing hair effectively. It also has a lower ideal temperature, making it excellent for delicate, dry, and mature skin.
How to Decide if You Have Sensitive Skin
If you’re asking yourself which wax is best for your client’s skin, your best bet is to ask the client themselves. If they don’t know their type and you need to help them decipher if their skin is sensitive, here are a few questions you should start with.
Swollen, Red, or Itchy
One of the tell-tale signs of sensitive skin is when it’s often swollen, red, and itchy. This is a sign it’s reacting to different allergens in the environment and doesn’t well to strange new compositions.
Unexplained rashes can be another sign of sensitive skin. Sometimes, those rashes aren’t even unexplained, and you know the cause, but it’s not typically something others’ skin might react to so harshly.
While dry skin can be its own unique problem, it can also be a sign that you have sensitive skin. Dry skin is often caused by cold and dry environments or contact with substances your skin may not like, such as certain body washes and soaps.
