So, how does cream for hair removal act? It is capable to removing hair at the body due to its components, the most important of which is keratin. It damages the hair structure and the hair can be easily removed from the body. By promises of many manufacturers of such creams, hair will not grow at the treated area for several days, and in some cases even weeks. Depilatory creams vary in their purpose:

  1. bikini
  2. for hands and feet
  3. underarm area

They all have a different level of pH. Therefore tool designed for a specific area of the body should not be used elsewhere. Especially when it is about sensitive areas (face, bikini) and a cream, for example, for the feet. A self-respecting manufacturer is required to take care of the client and adds a useful means of additives: oils, vitamins, herbal ingredients. We can not compare the effectiveness of work of the cream for depilation with oil and the similar preparation, but without mineral additives. Oils tone and moisturize the skin. Therefore, there is much less skin irritation.
