Is a Strong Chemical Formulation
The chemicals dissolve the hair proteins and turn the hair into a jellylike mass.
After a few minutes the hair and cream can be removed with a special spatula.
Whenever in doubt, you should rather use the “sensitive skins”. Fight the urge to leave it on for longer than recommended.
Your skin will turn red and itchy and you might even get blisters that will take several days to heal again. It is not worth it.
I would not recommend use of this product for male facial hair removal, because the facial skin is much too sensitive to put such harsh chemicals on.
What is the active ingredient?The active ingredient in depilatory cream is a keratolytic or keratin dissolving substance.
Because the skin also contains the protein keratin, the skin will also be attacked by the product at the same time the hair is being dissolved.
The skin will become very sensitive if used too often or if the depilatory cream is left on for too long.
It is essential that you do a test patch on the inside of the forearm 24 hours in advance, to determine if the client is allergic to the product.
