I am Rosie Khandwala, Co- founder of Aqua Natural Ltd, I introduced and pioneered the concept of Strip Sugaring into UK back in 1989.
Everyone’s journey starts somewhere, my beauty career started in Tanzania where I grew up. From the age of 15, I worked part time as an apprentice in my cousin’s salon.
Growing up in the tropics the most frequent treatments in the salons was waxing but with sugar paste. The paste was made in-house using the traditional method of mixing sugar and lemon juice, made to a consistency which was applied similarly like waxing using strips.
When I moved to the UK in 1987, I noticed a complete absence of any sugar based waxing products in the professional market. It took no time for me to seize this opportunity.
I furthered my knowledge of sugar chemistry by attending Leather Food College. We have now a refined product formulated from using blend of sugar syrups. Eliminating lemon juice gives the product smooth applicable consistency and efficacy. It remains unique in the market for the simplicity of its formulation and its high-quality results.
As a company we have a track record of maintaining ethical standard in our manufacturing practice to keep it clean and green for the future of environment. All the ingredients used in the manufacturing of our product range are biodegradable and sourced from companies that comply with equally high standards. With more than 30 years in the industry as manufacturers we have proved to be the market leaders in this sector.
We are now at the pivotal time in history to make changes and adapt to practices which benefits the clients and your conscious!
