In truth, these creams contain chemicals that break down keratin bonds. Keratin is present in both hair and skin.
The main thing to remember when using these creams is that if you follow the instructions you should be fine. As long as the cream isn’t left on your skin for too long, you shouldn’t experience any negative effects.
As I couldn’t find anything like it online, here’s my list of the safest hair removal creams you can buy:
Best 3 Safe Hair Removal Creams
It’s a hard to beat product that includes a number of natural ingredients such as aloe vera and certain hydrating agents. This actually does a lot to neutralize the detrimental effects of the creams to your skin.
Veet is a very well known and trusted company so my advice when using this is to follow the instructions as closely as you can. That way you are much less likely to do any damage.
I’d recommend this product for use on your legs as its brilliant at it, but also for facial use or underarms its good too. Remember not to rub the cream in!
So the Olay Smooth Finish Hair Remover Kit is really mostly for facial use. It’s a fantastic cream and of course you may be just looking for a safe hair removal cream for your unwanted facial hair, so I added it to the list.
I think something cool about this cream is that Olay have designed a routine to use that maximises hair loss and skin care. Essentially what you do is apply a skin guarding balm and then add the remover cream after. Let about 8 minutes pass and then wash it all off!
Another reason I added this to the list is because of the skin protector balm. If you’re a little worried still about the chemicals in hair remover creams and the damage it may do to your skin, then this will hopefully put your mind at ease!
The ingredients in the cream are probably the least likely to irritate or damage your skin out of any hair removal cream you can buy.
It’s USDA certified organic and only contains sugar, water, lemon juice, chamomile and tea tree oil.
Moom is also an all-rounder meaning it’s effective for anywhere on your body including your face.
