Aqua Natural Launches Sustainability Scheme

At Aqua Natural, we have always made ethical and eco-friendly business a cornerstone of our company and our brand.

We’re joining the war to end single-use plastic and made it our mission to identify how we could make our already recyclable Aqua Natural Strip Sugaring jars even better for the environment while keeping them user-friendly.

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our “Refill, Reduce, Reuse” rewards scheme to encourage therapists and salon owners to return their empty jars of Aqua Natural Strip Sugaring to us to be washed, sterilised and reused, free of charge. While refillable schemes are already in operation for shampoos and cleaning products, there is no such programme in place for waxing products and we are delighted to be the first in our category to launch an initiative like this.

Our plastic jars have been tricky proposition for us. Whilst we have always ensured that we used recyclable plastic for our jars, we felt we could take it a step further. We have continued to use plastic because we wanted a jar that was safe to microwave, for ease and speed for therapists. It is now about how we used plastic in an eco-friendlier way than just recycling. Reducing the amount of single use plastic in our process was always the next natural step in our drive to be better for the environment. Finding a way in which the jars, didn’t have to be disposed of afterwards was our aim. We believe this is a solution that will help not only our customers, but the environment too!

Joining the scheme couldn’t be any easier: we require a minimum of six jars to be returned at any one time and in return, a 15% discount will be added to the next order. And because Aqua Natural Strip Sugaring is 100% natural and water-soluble, it means cleaning out jars and sterilising them is easy, clean and safe as we don’t use any chemicals for this process. Good for our customers’ pockets, good for the environment!

Why using a Sugaring product will reduce the impact on the environment!


We at Aqua Natural are celebrating 30 years in manufacturing of Strip Sugaring. We feel we have come full circle. When we first introduced the concept of strip sugaring back in 1989 it was received with much skepticism within the industry.  But today we are the leading brand in this sector and the only one to have been registered with the Vegan Society and certified by Cruelty Free international.  Strip Sugaring is a natural, ethical and environmentally conscious alternative to the normal waxing products. It is formulated from natural ingredients our specialist blend of sugar syrups and it’s benefits far surpass waxes. Not only is there a benefit to the client as being a gentle and less painful, biodegradable, water soluble and recyclable all things waxes are not and benefits that reduce its impact on the environment.

Most waxes are chemically formulated with polymer and resins which act as a glue and can only be removed using solvents. They can take decades to biodegrade and end up in landfills. Once the wax is in the warmer the client has no knowledge of what is being used on their skin. With most beauty treatments the therapist will talk the client through the various products on offer and benefits of each one, giving them a choice. But when it comes to waxing it’s not the case.

Our aim is to introduce the students to using strip sugaring. It is ideal for beginners to practice during the training for waxing course as the product is water soluble and gentle on skin. It is also very cost effective as there would be no use of solvents either for cleaning or during the treatment.

We shall be at the Professional Beauty London and will be doing demonstrations and would encourage anyone who wishes to learn more about strip sugaring to visit our stand W32.
