Here at Tamara’s Professional Body Sugaring, we’ve been doing lots of research and development. You’ll be seeing a few more new products coming from us soon.

We’re so thrilled to announce that our new organic fair-trade sugar paste line has the stamp of approval from Fair Trade USA. We’re extremely conscious that everything we do has a direct impact somewhere – not just on our clients. We’re constantly trying to make sure that what we do is sustainable and good for the planet and its people. In fact, we create near zero waste in our production of our sugar paste.

Therefore, it was natural then for us to pursue a line of sugar that was the best possible – which meant organic and fair trade.

What does fair trade mean? It means just what the label suggests – it’s fair.  Certified fair trade on the logo means that people working those resources are justly compensated. The Fair Trade USA organization makes sure that, in our product’s case, the sugar farmers in developing countries businesses are sustainable and are positively influencing their communities. As an added bonus, the incredible aspect of Fair Trades is that funds are specifically designated for social, economic and environmental development projects which are determined by each community. Around the world, sugar cane farmers are some of the most impoverished in the world as a result of fluctuating prices and difficulty accessing markets. Fair Trade connects farmers directly to buyers, thereby improving the lives of the sugar growers, their families, and communities, as well as their products.

How sweet is that?

We started working on the formula for a paste made from Organic Sugar a year ago.  We wanted it to be the best quality – what you’ve come to expect from Tamara’s Professional Body Sugaring, including choices.  It took us a little bit longer than expected.  However, it was very worth it. It’s incredible to know that our products are helping farmers in Paraguay sustainably farm and positively impact their communities.

PerfectlySmooth Paste™ 

Our Organic Fair Trade sugaring line is called PerfectlySmooth,  packaged in our signature 35-ounce tub. comes in Ultra Smooth (soft) , Smooth (med soft) and Strong (firm). However, the tub is transparent so you can see the beautiful rich caramel color of the organic sugar.

Our PerfectlySmooth Paste™ has the ability to absorb moisture and hold up in warmer conditions without becoming too soft.  The reason for this is, organic sugar is unrefined and a much larger grain/molecule.  The earthiness and texture of the sugar creates a resilient paste.  Acacia gum that you often see in softer pastes like our Signature "Soft" and "Medium Soft" is not needed in our PerfectlySmooth Paste™

This paste is beautiful to work with; making it such a win-win because it’s made from the fairest and best products our world has to offer.  We’re so proud to be able to offer this to our clients and know that people are taking care of themselves with our product while making the world
