Sugar & Co. was established in 2014 by experienced esthetician, Sara Pauli. Sara’s passion for pioneering a world-class, hair removal product came from noticing inconsistencies with the body sugaring pastes currently found on the market. Destined to find a better solution, she worked vigorously with her sister, Samantha Pauli, to try and find the answer. After researching the sugar paste industry, they quickly understood all the information available did not have any credibility, and the recipes offered produced poor quality results. They sought to create professional products practitioners could work with, clients would adore and were environmentally sustainable.
Sara and Samantha reached out to top-tier, accredited Western University in an effort to help them research and craft the perfect paste. Working closely with Dr. Michael Kerr, a world-renowned organic synthetic chemist, and Joanne Curiel Tejeda, a project intern, they spent months experimenting with a variety of vast ingredients, temperatures and other variables that affect the Sugar. After years and extensive clinical trials, 90 and 96 were finalized - also known as Sugar & Co® Firm and Soft Sugar Paste. Sara and Samantha then began to focus their efforts on developing a training program to educate practitioners in the art of body sugaring®.
With over 10 years in the esthetics industry, the two sisters’ ultimate goal is to improve the industry by further educating practitioners, and providing professional and retail products that will make sugaring a household name.
