The Benefits of a Natural Hair Removal

There are several benefits to choosing natural hair removal methods over shaving or using depilatory creams. If you’re looking for a natural and cost-effective hair removal system, then you are going to love the Parissa Brow Wax Strips and Face & Lip Wax Strips that we have in the June 2024 Box. Made from natural, sustainable ingredients, these was strips are the perfect solution for your at-home waxing needs. In addition to loving the Parissa Wax Strips, we love that they also have easy to understand videos to assist you with using their products. Find out more about how Parissa got its start, how to prep your skin before using one of their wax kits or strips, and more. 

How did Parissa get its start?

Parissa was founded in the 1980s by Azar Moayeri, who began her journey as the first female graduate in Chemical Engineering from the University of Edinburgh in the UK. Upon moving to Canada, Azar identified a significant gap in the market: the lack of natural hair removal solutions. Undeterred by the challenge, she began developing Canada’s first all-natural and organic hair removal product right from her kitchen. With the support from her family, Parissa was born, embodying a commitment to natural beauty and empowerment. Today, Parissa stands as a leader in the natural hair removal industry and is a beloved household brand.

What does the name Parissa mean?

Parissa means ‘angelic’ in Farsi. 

What inspired Founder, Azar Moayeri to use all natural ingredients?

Azar Moayeri was driven by the desire to create a safe hair removal product that people could confidently incorporate into their grooming routines. Her goal was to empower individuals to feel confident in their own skin. This commitment to safety and efficacy led her to use all-natural ingredients, ensuring the products were gentle and suitable for her own family members as well.

What should people know before using Parissa’s waxing products?

Parissa’s ingredients are safe, gentle, and derived from natural, sustainable sources. Our waxes are made from simple ingredients such as tree resin, cane sugar, beeswax, vegetable oils, and plant extracts. Parissa products are USDA certified and made with all-natural ingredients. Additionally, all our products are cruelty-free, and we are proud members of The Leaping Bunny Certification Program. We are committed to sustainability, using only sustainably sourced and recyclable packaging materials. For optimal hair-removal results, it is crucial to carefully read and follow the instructions included in the box.

What’s the best way to prep your skin before using the wax strips?

No special preparation is required for waxing, but it is important to keep the following tips in mind:

  • Patch Test: Always perform a patch test before using the product. Parissa products are hypoallergenic, but some skin types may be more sensitive than others. Mild redness is typical post-waxing.
  • Avoid Sunbathing: Refrain from sunbathing before waxing to prevent skin irritation.
  • Natural Skin Oils: Do not wash your skin or bathe before waxing. Natural skin oils help reduce discomfort and allow the wax to effectively remove hairs.
  • Medication Caution: Do not wax if you are using Retinol, Accutane, Glycolic Acid, or Alpha Hydroxy Acids.
  • Read Instructions: To achieve the best results, it is crucial to carefully read and follow the instructions included in the box.


What other tips can you give us on how to use the wax strips for your eyebrows, face and lip?

  • Warm Up the Wax: Rub the strip between your fingers or palms for a few seconds to warm up the wax.
  • Separate Slowly: Separate the strips slowly to ensure the wax stays on both parts of the strip.
  • Apply Correctly: Apply the strip in the direction of hair growth.
  • Remove Quickly: Keep your skin taut and remove the strip as quickly as possible. The faster you zip off the strip, the better the results.
  • Post-Wax Care: Apply Ultra Soothe Oil immediately after waxing to calm the skin.
  • Video Instructions: For additional guidance, video instructions for the eyebrows and face & lips are available at


What are the key ingredients in the Brow Wax Strips and the Face and Lip Wax Strips?

This quick and easy waxing option consists of ready-to-use strips that are evenly coated on both sides with a gentle cream-based wax made of beeswax and natural pine resin. Our clear wax strips are 100% biodegradable, as they are made from cellulose, which is naturally derived from renewable sources such as wood, cotton, and hemp.

What are the benefits of these key ingredients?

While other waxes may include plastics and petrochemicals, we use beeswax as an all-natural alternative. Beeswax helps bind our wax together, making it soft and stretchy, as well as safe to use. Natural pine resin enhances the adhesive properties of the wax, ensuring effective hair removal. Parissa’s non-toxic waxes are also safe for the environment, as they do not contain harmful chemicals. Additionally, our biodegradable clear wax strips are made from cellulose, derived from renewable sources such as wood, cotton, and hemp, further reducing environmental impact.

Our products are safe for the skin, even for pregnant women, and are hypoallergenic. This ensures that our waxes are gentle on sensitive skin while providing effective and safe hair removal.

Is this wax for all skin types?

Parissa Face & Lip Wax Strips workout well for most skin types and are perfect for gentle facial skin. The strips may be challenging to use on extremely thin/fine, extremely short hair.

How often can you use the wax strips?

Hair growth speed varies from person to person, so the frequency of waxing sessions will depend on individual factors. Typically, it takes 2-4 weeks for hair to regrow after waxing.

To avoid skin lifting, refrain from waxing the same area twice within 24 hours.

What other products can you suggest from Parissa for our subscribers to use after using either of the waxing products in the June Box? 

We offer waxes all types of hair (even short and coarse) for all body parts including face, arms & legs, bikini & Brazilian, and underarms. We also offer solutions for ingrown hair with our Ingrown Rescue Kit and accessories like mini pro wax warmers.
