For a while now (almost a year) I’ve been working on my own natural hair remover recipe but I haven’t quite nailed it yet. It’s extremely infuriating as the ingredient list is so short and simple: water, sugar, lemon juice and a few drops of essential oil if you’re feeling like it. The reason why it’s so difficult to make a natural hair remover at home is because to get the perfect consistency (sticky enough and soft enough that it spreads well after the mixture cools down) it’s a matter of the perfect temperature and the perfect timing. So when I don’t have the luxury of the time to experiment and my body hair is getting out of control then desperate times call for desperate measures. I go out and buy something.
Enter stage left Acorelle 100% Natural Oriental Wax for face and body. I’m not sure what makes it “oriental” per say. Ingredients are simply sugar, water, and lemon juice. The sugar and lemon juice are organic and the product carries the ECOCERT label. I couldn’t find information on the Acorelle website specifically about the “oriental” wax that I used so I suspect it might have been replaced by a newer product “royal wax” which uses natural pine resin, organic beeswax, and white lily extract. I’ll be sure to try that next, although hopefully I’ll have mastered my own recipe before then!
