Beauty therapists world wide insist upon Caron’s superior salon waxes and accessories. It is founder Lilliane Caron’s absolute dedication to therapist and client satisfaction that has seen the brand become Australia’s leading salon wax manufacturer; continually setting the salon standard to which others strive.
Based in Geelong, Australia, the Caron brand had its beginnings over 28 years ago, in Lilliane’s busy salon, which she owns to this day. Working long hours, Lilliane became frustrated with the expensive, inferior, difficult to use waxes on the market; so she set about formulating her own range of hard and strip waxes.
Caron’s premier range, Smooth & Remove, was unlike anything on the market at that time. It quickly gained a reputation amongst beauty therapists Australia wide for its advanced formulations, which made waxing easier and provided unrivalled results at a very reasonable price. It is still one of Caron’s top selling lines, continuing to delight beauty therapists the world over.
Following the success of the Smooth and Remove range and the development of a sophisticated waxing accessories line, Lilliane was further inspired to make the lives of beauty therapists easier. Her next opportunity lay in restoring therapists’ confidence in hard wax, which had been overtaken in the eighties by strip wax due to its speed, efficiency and perception that it was more hygienic. Lilliane helped hard wax make a comeback by revolutionizing it, making it gentle and effective, so that it gripped to the hair without pulling the skin for exceptional waxing results.
A pioneer of Brazilian waxing in Australia, Lilliane is often asked to demonstrate her renowned technique to students and salons the world over. The burgeoning trend for Brazilian waxing in the late nineties inspired Lilliane to create a XXX hard wax to meet the needs of beauty therapists, who she knew would be inundated with requests for Brazilian waxes.
So in the year 2000, following extensive research, Australia’s No 1 selling wax ‘Brilliance’ was borne.Brilliance, Caron’s signature wax, is a unique hypo allergenic XXX white wax with a creamy texture. It was an immediate hit and is famous for its exceptional flexibility which makes XXX and delicate waxing much easier. It will not go brittle or crack on the skin, delivering unrivalled results and giving confidence to even the most inexperienced beauty therapist. Brilliance is the envy of wax manufacturers’ world over and many have tried, without success, to replicate Caron’s advanced formula.
Since Brilliance, and the industry’s return to hard waxes, Caron has developed a number of elite hard waxes that are pliable, non brittle, gentle, and safe to use on delicate areas of the face and body. Along with Brilliance, these waxes are the choice of top salons and spas worldwide.
Caron’s dedication to salon, therapist and client comfort saw in 2004, the development of Micro Defence. It revolutionized protection against germs and infection. It has a kill rate of 99% on contact with a wide range of bacteria, fungi and viruses including Herpes Type 1 & 2 as well as Hepatitis A & B. Available in a Gel for the body and Spray for bench tops and equipment, Micro Defence is non-toxic, non-carcinogenic and environmentally friendly. Micro Defence has quickly become one of Caron’s most popular accessories, with many therapists using it as their total salon hygiene solution, saving them time and money.
