Overall, Nad’s Natural Hair Removal Sugar Wax Kit is as sustainable as these wax kits can get. The company is transparent and open with the ingredients and materials they use to create the wax along with its packaging. Nad’s advertises on their website this no-heat natural wax is the answer to anyone’s unwanted hair problems. Their wax products are said to be less painful than others based on reviews. The symbols below help to show their work towards creating sustainable products. This is a family run business and the founder, Sue Ismeil makes it very clear that she wants aims to comprise her products of natural ingredients

While most of this information can be easily found on their website, I still decided to reach out to Nad’s to ask a few more questions about their eco-impact. Basically, they are still working on ways to reduce package contents such as not including the cotton strips or making the box smaller. Nad’s did not disclose information of how their product is made by informing me that they cannot disclose information of their assembly line. However, they are actively working toward being more transparent about their environmental care. They stated in their reply to my email inquiry, “Please be assured that I will provide our Social Media Team of your suggestion to include information regarding our Eco Policy to our Websites blog.” Additionally, waxing is in the top 2 of better options for  a positive eco-impact compared to other hair removal methods. This is a good product to start off with in your waxing journey knowing that only organic ingredients are going on your skin is a big plus. And who knows maybe this experience can lead to you creating your own sugar wax, which can do more good for the earth and your pockets, too.

There is not much information on how the wax kit is made on their website or social media pages. So I wrote to the company inquiring about how they are trying to impact the environment through their manufacturing means. They responded that their production chain is confidential, so they are not allowed to disclose information regarding their assembly line set up.
