Ra is our red Signature Series hard wax. The Highest Quality Premium Hard Wax available which also just happens to be both Vegan Friendly & Hypoallergenic/Allergen Free. Our Signature Series wax is a first of it's kind. This super elastic wax is ideal for both fine and coarse hair, meaning it can be used on the face, bikini and body. Icarus is a low temperature hard wax formulation that is perfect for even the most sensitive skin. That's right, no more irritation caused by other wax lines. This wax contains no Colophonium or animal-derived products, therefore it is the ONLY hard wax that is both Hypoallergenic/Allergen Free and Vegan Friendly. Just check the ingredients of the wax you're using, you'll see it contains "Colophonium" a universally recognized allergen; see the National Institutes of Health literature on the topic. Due to the blend of very high quality synthetic resins, waxes, and polymers, Ra can be applied very thin without breaking upon removal. Oh yeah and, of course, it's fragrance free!
Ra, The Sun God, was THE central figure of worship in Ancient Egypt. The prominence of Ra in Egyptian Religion has caused many to argue it was a veiled monotheism. The King of Gods was neither male nor female, Ra was both and more! Ra gave birth to itself as well as the Sky, Earth, the Underworld, & the other Demigods. To many Ra is represented by the head of a falcon, but the more prolific icon is the Eye of Ra or feminine counterpart of the God. Allow the Eye of Ra to guide you through the easiest and fastest wax possible, no other comes close.
Heat up the wax until the consistency is creamy such as honey or molasses (normally takes about 20-30 minutes depending on the size of warmer).
Test temperature of wax on the inside of your wrist.
Always use a new spatula for each application -NO DOUBLE DIPPING! Using the edge of a wax spatula, apply a thin layer of wax in the direction of the hair growth using smooth and firm pressure.
Wait a couple of seconds for the wax to cool. Stretch the skin tight during removal. Remove wax in one quick, swift motion parallel to the surface of the skin in the opposite direction of the hair growth.
Repeat as needed.
Note: Normally only one application is needed for each area. If necessary, a cleanup strip should remove any "stragglers" left behind. Rarely will you need to use a third application over the same area if you're using the wax properly. We have a variety of online training or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more help.
