Why did sugaring become a choice?

Vera and her partner, Eva Moss, went much more deeper into the study of hair depilation, investing significant time and effort in order to conceptualize a venture that would be just theirs. Having established close and tight-knit collaboration, they quickly moved towards market landscape analysis, thus managing to identify a glaring gap of sugaring—they believed at that time that this technique wasn’t widely accepted and worked on ways on how to improve the situation. They succeeded in recognizing the inadequacies of the existing cosmetics, which was accessible in the market that time. Moreover, they had a particular success in addressing concerns like redness and irritation, which later determined the premium quality of the manufactured products.

It is crucial to mention that this happened two decades ago. It was a time period when the beauty industry experienced its rapid and ongoing evolution and the emergence of new products were just a pure beginning for further growth. Being fully committed and determined to promise elite quality solutions adapted to the unique needs and tastes of any lady, Vera and Eva envisioned a line of cosmetics that would revolutionize depilation approach along with prioritizing comfort and effectiveness.

They fueled their enthusiasm by clearly getting the idea that the ladies of almost any age will need to do it routinely. Giving a smile, they have acknowledged the fundamental principle that unwanted hair seems to grow in any body part, even in the most inconvenient one. Following this principle they guided all of their efforts on reaching perfection in sugaring technique, hence they believe this must have been the key to their further venture's success.

Their principal objective was to establish something pretty similar to what Sugaring Factory is today—a leading example in the cosmetics industry, which promises exceptional cosmetics to retailers, estheticians, and individual consumers alike. They wanted not just to deliver on market expectations but to exceed them. They truly maximize their contribution in order to set up a new standard for quality and efficacy of cosmetics.

The venture’s growth calls for constant adaptation, pushing her far beyond her comfort zone in order to acquire new skills or to initiate a partnership with those clever and passionate minds possessing the expertise needed.

Vera knows for sure that entrepreneurship involves the obstacles that need to be overcome, requires careful planning and further execution and is worth the efforts invested in the end. In most cases a transparent assessment of one's own abilities and those accompanying team members. Success recognition is considered to be a truly collaborative effort. Not to mention that Vera highlights the crucial role of teamwork while achieving the set goals inside the company.
