Hair Removal: Hair depilatories can help dissolve your hair on the surface of your skin. Technically, hair depilatories are applied on the skin and work by breaking down the hair's protein structure. These products are available on the market and may come in the form of lotions, gels or creams. Laser hair removal is effective but costly.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
