I grew up in tropical Zimbabwe, Africa. My family ate all organic foods and fruit before it was trendy. I remember when I was a little girl watching my mom and grandmother drawing on nature’s bounty to provide both food and medicine for our family. My grandmother had her own organic recipe for making cough syrup from the leaves of different fruit trees from her garden when someone was ill.
Searching My style
When I was 18 I had a passion to travel and see the world so I began my career in skincare as head spa therapist for Celebrity Cruise lines. After traveling around the world meeting with 100’s of experts in the area of skincare I landed in South Carolina where I founded the Body Sugaring and Wellness Spa in 2010.
Armed with the invaluable skincare experience and knowledge from working with people from all corners of the world; I wanted to provide my clients with a world class spa experience using simple, organic, natural ingredients.
I have been using sugaring technique for body hair removal before it was popular as an alternative to the waxing. (In fact, Cleopatra used the sugaring technique in ancient Egypt) I was never satisfied with the range of sugaring pastes on the market, so I created my own. Inspired by Grandmother’s concoctions made from her garden using organic ingredients , I perfected my sugar paste, Tapira. I want to share Tapira with the world which would make my granny proud!
Tapira Sugar Paste’s Unique Rich Dark Color
Our sugar paste is made from 100% unrefined organic certified sugar, non GMOs. It is grown without the use of pesticides and chemicals. Organic sugar is usually darker than traditional white refined sugar because it contains molasses.
