What’s the best way to ruin an outing at the beach? Four words: Visible unwanted body hair.
For the last eight years I’ve been fighting the beautiful—albeit, hairy—struggle of unwanted body hair with South Florida’s most guarded secret weapon: Uni K. Wax salon.
And I have Noemi Grupenmager, the woman who coined the term ‘Brazilian wax,’ to thank for her all-natural, elastic ouch-free wax.
Launched in 1993, what separates Uni. K. Wax salons’ wax from others, is its all-natural chemistry: it’s a beeswax made with elastic pine tree resin that’s infused with hydrating essential oils.
And of course its unique look—it basically resembles clear, green goop.
Unlike typical wax that coats to your skin after heating, Grupenmager’s wax is applied at body-temperature allowing it to stick to your hair roots.
Within a few minutes of melting, it stretches over the entire area of skin allowing estheticians to remove hair without wasteful paper strips, painful pulling, or burning.
In laymen terms, compared to other waxing experiences with Grupenmager’s wax you’re in for a less painful wax session minus third degree burns.
As for those essential oils, they prevent sensitive skin from imploding with razor bumps and ingrown hairs, and acts as a skin moisturizer.
And if you’re still questioning its cult status, the green wax has multiple uses. It’s perfect for unclogging pores in your T-zone area.
