A 31-year-old male asked:

is there any natural product and/or remedies that can stop, inhibit or slow down body hair growth for men ? i know that some inhibitor creams can at least slow hair growth, im guessing some of their ingredients that they keep secret can do the trick

None that I know: There are many products advertised when one looks on the internet for products to slow hair growth, but none of them have controlled studies. A topical Rx cream called Vaniqa (Eflornithine) is approved to slow regrowth facial hair but not for general use. Pills that are available are mainly anti-androgen agents like spironolactone or finasteride,but are usually recommend for women with PCOS
