Why we use cornflour

Quite a bit actually. We use it as a substitute for talcum powder for some pretty serious reasons.


The reason powder is used during waxing is to absorb excess moisture and sweat on the skin, which allows for a more effective wax.

We’ve also found it to help the wax set quicker.

However, studies have questioned whether talcum powder is doing more harm than good.

Talcum powder is made from talc, which has trace elements of magnesium, silicon and oxygen that absorb moisture.

It helps to stop the particles getting into the pores which may cause inflammation.
