Sugar Squared is Launching!

2021 is here and the Sugar Squared team is ready to share with you what they’ve been working on for months…Sugar Squared: natural, handcrafted, sustainably produced hair removal.

This product is made to help you remove hair in the safest, least-painful, most-effective, and environmentally sustainable way! Each jar of Sugar Squared is handcrafted in Vancouver, BC. We use a glass container with a metal lid and a stone paper label to ensure that our environmental footprint is limited. The product itself is 100% biodegradable and made with natural, un-processed, and clean ingredients. Not to mention, our label is designed and produced locally in Vancouver, BC.

Stone Paper

Stone paper is made out of powdered limestone (calcium carbonate) and is tear-resistant flame-retardant, water-resistant, and hard-wearing. Neither wood fibers nor water are needed in the production process, making the stone paper a sustainable and environment-friendly material to use for products.

Calcium carbonate (CaCo3) is a naturally occurring raw material that is available in almost inexhaustible quantities according to Stone Paper Products’ website. The lime powder used for the production of stone paper is usually a waste product from quarries, consequently not adding more waste into our world. Specifically, the product consists of 80% stone powder and 20% organic plastic. Neither trees, bleaching agents, acids, bases, or fluorescent chemicals are used during the manufacturing process. Additionally, the energy requirement is only half as great as of the conventional cellulose paper, and compared to virgin fiber paper, there is also no residue or waste during processing. As a result,” paper” made of stone and being a sustainable alternative is now playing an increasingly important role in the manufacture of promotional items (Stone Paper Products, 2020)

A Forbes’ article titled “This Founder Argues That Rocks Are Better Than Wood For Notebooks’’ written by Esha Chhabra notes that the paper comes from waste marble and limestone that are housed at construction facilities and recycled into paper. Otherwise, the materials would sit in a landfill. The co-founder of Karst Stone Paper, John Tse, states that “Stone paper is made from recycled materials and is itself recyclable.”

Give it a try!

So? What do you say? Give Sugar Squared a try? Not only does it work extremely well, but it is clear that you are being environmentally friendly, a better citizen, and supporting a local company by purchasing a jar of Sugar Squared.
