Rica Wax Vs. Normal wax

What is Rica Wax

Rica wax is actually a liposoluble wax manufactured by Italy-based company Rica. Liposoluble what? It is made of resin extracts and vegetable oils unlike regular or normal wax is made of sugar or honey. Because it’s all natural and no chemicals, Rica is the best wax for sensitive skin.

Benefits of Rica wax:

  • Great for all skin types, normal, dry and even sensitive
  • No redness post application as it is 100% Colophony free (the ingredient that causes redness or irritation)
  • Hair removal is smooth and does not require re-application
  • Hair growth slows down leading to less frequent waxing sessions
  • Tan removal is an added advantage of Rica wax
  • Little or negligible pain upon hair removal
  • Pre and post-wax oils make waxing easy and non-sticky

Normal or Regular wax

Regular wax has been around for ages. It is primarily made of sugar or honey but contains chemicals as well. It is not suitable for sensitive skin owing to the chemicals present.

Disadvantages of regular wax

  • Does not remove hair completely even after multiple attempts
  • Can cause redness, itchiness and bumps because of chemicals
  • Is not suitable for sensitive skin
  • Is sticky in nature as the primary components are sugar and honey
  • Is painful as it’s ability to stick to the hair and pull it out completely is weak


Differences Between Rica Wax and Normal Wax

I strongly recommend that you go for Rica wax over Normal wax. Even though Rica wax is more expensive than normal wax, the price difference is nothing compared to the benefits of rica wax. And the reasons are:
