Depilatory Cream-Types


Depilatory cream is one of many options available for removing unwanted hair.

It is suitable for use on almost all body parts.

These creams work by weakening hair strands after they are applied.

After which the cream is wiped off alongside the unwanted hair.

This process is painless and should leave no after scar.

Depilatory creams contain a major ingredient referred to as, “ thioglycolic acid.”

This ingredient alongside others carries out hair removal.

Results via depilatory cream are however not, “ Permanent.”

As hair growth would occur, a week or two after use.


Depilatory cream just like other hair removal products is, “ Relatively safe.”

This is because there are certain side effects associated with using these creams.

But, this should however not discourage you from using these creams.

Two popular side effects are listed below;

1. Burns

This mostly occurs when depilatory creams are left on the skin much longer than recommended.

Burns occur due to the chemicals contained in the product.

The degree of the skin burn is dependent on the area where it was applied.

This should however not discourage you from using this product.

As burn would not occur if you use, “ Strictly as instructed.”

2. Offensive Odor

When depilatory creams are applied to the skin, you may perceive a very offensive smell.

This smell is similar to that of, “ Rotten eggs.”

But this should not be a cause for concern.

As the offensive odor is the end product of the cream’s interaction with the hair.
