Global Success, Local Roots: Parissa Celebrates 40 Years as the Worldwide Leader in Natural Hair Removal
VANCOUVER, BC | February 07, 2023 08:00 AM Eastern Standard Time
Parissa, makers of the world’s #1 natural wax, is celebrating 40 years of global success backed by strong and enduring local roots.
Family-owned and headquartered on Vancouver’s North Shore, Parissa was founded in 1983 by chemical engineer Azar Moayeri. After immigrating to Vancouver from her native Iran, Moayeri noticed a gap in the market for chemical-free hair removal solutions. That’s when Moayeri took matters into her own hands, formulating Canada’s first all-natural hair removal product from the comfort of her kitchen.
From its upstart beginnings to today, Parissa’s mission has remained constant: to reinvent home hair removal for every consumer and make it a simple part of one's self-care routine. Designed for women and men alike, Parissa’s product assortment includes sugar wax, hard wax and warm wax to meet every waxing preference and need. Its streamlined waxing kits are easy to use and contain all the necessary components for achieving smooth and healthy skin results for up to eight weeks.
“Forty years ago, I set out to create a product that addressed an important need in the hair removal category. Those grassroots beginnings shaped us and provided a solid foundation for us to grow into the global brand we are today,” said Parissa Founder, Azar Moayeri. “I couldn’t be more grateful for all the family, community and customer support we’ve received over the years. Our success wouldn’t have been possible without you.”
At every touchpoint, Parissa is dedicated to promoting the highest quality hair removal experience with the lowest environmental impact. Every element of Parissa waxing kits – from products to packaging – is sustainable and ethically sourced from 100% all-natural ingredients like tree resin, cane sugar, beeswax, vegetable oils and plant extracts.
As Parissa marks its 40-year anniversary as a worldwide leader in natural home hair removal, the company remains firmly rooted in its local and family values as well as its commitment to social responsibility and environmental sustainability. The company manufactures, packages and ships products from its award-winning eco facility in North Vancouver and employs a dedicated team equally committed to its socially-minded and customer-focused mission.
