How It All Began
Strip-sugaring Hair Removal Experts
We’re Rosie and Hafiz Khandwala the founders of Aqua Natural Ltd. We are specialists in sugar waxing (also known as strip-sugaring) products. We were the first people to introduce the concept of sugar waxing in the UK. Rosie grew up using sugar waxing back in Tanzania where she grew up. After moving to the UK in 1987, she was unable to find sugar waxing anywhere in the retail or professional market. Seeing this gap in the market, we decided to start manufacturing ourselves out of our own facility in Northamptonshire, UK, where we are still located to this day. We launched our own line of professional and retail products but also entered the contract manufacturing world as well. Which is where we created the original sugar waxing hair removal product for The Body Shop, which for 18 years was a global bestseller until they were purchased by L’Oréal
We established the business in 1988, with the aim of developing a completely natural range of skincare products that are free of artificial additives and are environmentally friendly. We have strived to use centuries-old traditional eastern recipes in our formulation, but we have updated them to suit modern life and to produce the highest quality hair removal product. Our products are registered as vegan by The Vegan Society, approved as cruelty-free under the Leaping Bunny programme, and are eco-friendly.
We have a proven track record of having supplied sugar wax, both as our own brand and as a contract supplier for over 30 years.
We have marketed to the professional industry (for use in beauty salons) and to the retail sector, and have been at the forefront in the development of this type of product in the UK.
We have a strict policy against animal testing and we are Leaping Bunny approved.
