A Message from Maureen & Joseph:

Dear Valued Customers,

It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing the passing of Dr. Ben Paki, the previous owner and founder of Cold Wax Co. - San Diego, CA, on March 3rd, 2020, due to pancreatic cancer. 

I will not close the doors of Cold Wax Co. In fact, I will be stepping up and follow the inspiration and drive of Dr. Paki that forged Cold Wax Co. It was he, more than anyone, who helped create our worldwide reputation. Dr. Paki was a perfectionist and demanded the same standards for all of our products.

As his Assistant / Production Manager and friend, I promise that in memory of Dr. Ben Paki, I will uphold his values and bring honor to his legacy. Dr. Paki truly touched everyone he came into contact with, and he will never be forgotten. 


I hope that these words bring you some measure of comfort in knowing that this company is in kind and caring hands. 



Maureen Thomas

Owner of Cold Wax Co. 

To Our Valued Customers,

It is with a heavy heart that I share this news. On March 3rd, 2020, my father, Dr. Ben Paki, passed away after battling with pancreatic cancer during the last few months.

My father's passion, hard work and the many years he invested in this company have not gone to waste. I am excited to announce that we have made the decision to hand the company over to Maureen Thomas. She has been by my father's side working diligently with him for the past few years, and there is no one better to take over this company. Everything about this company will continue in this transition as Cold Wax Co. will always be the company you know and love.

Thank you for your many years of businesses you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to Contact Us.

“While millions have turned to laser, waxing, and electrolysis, others have opted for sugaring, a sweeter version of hair removal that uses a sugar paste instead of wax.”

“After a while, sugaring can damage the follicle causing the hair to stop growing, or it comes back finer and less frequently.”

“Sugaring, a natural method that’s kinder to the skin than waxing...is a good alternative.”

“Water-soluble ‘sugar’ products made from a sugar and water base are less sticky than traditional wax, so any excess washes off with water. They’re also gentler on sensitive skin.”
