How does a depilatory cream work?

Here is a basic understanding of how hair removal cream works on pubic hair.

  1. You need to apply the cream to the area to be treated in a layer thick enough to cover the hair underneath.
  2. Then leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. When the cream comes into contact with the hair, the chemicals in the cream begin to break down the hair protein.
  4. The result is that all the hair above the skin begins to dissolve in the cream.

Every part of the hair under the skin remains untouched and untreated during the process.

Is it safe to use a hair removal cream on the pubic area?

Many people ask: Is hair removal cream safe? Yes, it is safe to use hair removal creams on the pubic area, whether for men or women. It is one of the most painless methods to remove pubic hair in a short period of time. You can expect hair-free skin for a week or even longer. However, it may take more than 1 or 2 months for the hair to grow back.

Side effects of using depilatory cream in the pubic area

Chemical burns

The skin in the pubic area is very sensitive and depilatory creams trigger chemical reactions to break down the hair. Depilatory creams can cause chemical burns on sensitive skin, which can lead to second degree burns in some people if the cream is left on for too long.

Itching & Irritation

After applying the depilatory cream, you may experience temporary itching and mild irritation that may last up to a day or even longer. This is because the skin's top layer undergoes chemical reactions for 5 to 10 minutes.

Sudden change in softness and feel

The hair removal cream removes all hair in the pubic area and leaves skin soft, silky, baby-like smooth. The skin is very seductive and feels very pleasant for the man and his partner, especially during sex.

However, some people, especially newbies, need some time to get used to the sudden change in the soft feeling down there.


The chemical reactions can also cause temporary pigmentation, making the skin slightly darker than usual. This is a temporary reaction that should disappear on its own after a few days. However, some people may experience long-term discoloration, especially if their skin does not tolerate the hair removal cream perfectly. Using hair removal creams too often can also cause long-term side effects.

Unpleasant feeling after a few days

The sudden disappearance of all pubic hair at once can be uncomfortable for some people, especially those who are using the cream for the first time. This is because the person is not used to a completely hairless pubic area. But the person should get used to it in a few days.

Allergic reaction

If you use the wrong hair removal cream, you may experience allergic reactions. This is more common if you have existing allergies and/or are using the cream for the first time. Sometimes you may also experience temporary skin reactions such as rashes, redness, spots and increased sensitivity if you use the cream for longer than recommended.

Is a depilatory cream better than shaving?

In fact, hair removal cream is better and safer than shaving in every way. Despite the many potential side effects of hair removal cream, the chances of cuts, tears, razor burn, inflammation, redness and increased sensitivity from shaving are still high. Shaving in a hurry, using the wrong shaving technique or using a dull razor can cause cuts and wounds in the pubic area, which you can avoid with hair removal cream. There are none of these risks when using a cream.

How do you use a depilatory cream for the intimate area correctly?

Choosing the right hair removal cream for the pubic area

First, you should know your skin type. Many people have sensitive skin and may not even know it. Buy a hair removal cream for sensitive skin if you easily get razor bumps, sunburn, inflammation and redness. This indicates that you may have sensitive skin.

Not every hair removal cream for sensitive skin is suitable for intimate areas. There are some brands like No Hair Crew, Veet, Nair, Nad's, etc. that sell hair removal creams for intimate areas for men and women. If you prefer a particular brand, you can opt for that too.

Do a patch test with depilatory cream in the intimate area

It's best to do a patch test, especially if you're using the cream for the first time. Read the instructions on the package first and find out the application time suggested by the manufacturer. Some brands recommend leaving the cream on for 5 to 8 minutes, others 3 to 6 minutes, etc.

Use the cream on the thighs and near the penis shaft to check the results. Then try it on the penis and move on to the anal region and testicles as you like. Check for side effects in the next 2 days. If there are no side effects, it means the cream is suitable.

Use the right technique

You should normally find the instructions for use on the product packaging. Alternatively, you can also follow these steps:

  1. If the hair is long or very long, trim it.
  2. Wash the pubic area thoroughly and pat it dry with a terry towel.
  3. Start applying from the penis shaft and reach the penis. Finally, reach the genitals and anal area. Use the applicator that comes with the cream.
  4. Make sure the hair is covered under a layer of depilatory cream so that it can dissolve all the hair in it.
  5. Leave the cream on for the indicated time and use the applicator to wipe off all the cream. The applicator can be annoying, especially on the testicles, so use a clean cloth to wipe off all the cream.
  6. Rinse with cold water and pat dry.

Get help from a professional

Depilatory creams are one of the easiest ways to remove pubic hair, but if you have sensitive skin or experience side effects, you should see a doctor if the effects do not wear off within 1 to 3 days. You should be honest with your doctor about what cream you used and how you used it so that the doctor can understand what went wrong.

What are safe alternatives to pubic hair removal creams?

IPL hair removal is a safer and longer lasting alternative to pubic hair removal creams. When getting an IPL device, you should start with user-friendly brands like Ulike. The Ulike Air 10 is one of the newest products on the market that is highly effective at removing pubic hair and is also suitable for beginners.

Why and how is the Ulike Air 10 better?

  • It is safe for use in the pubic area in both men and women.
  • The time for treating the pubic region is just under 10 minutes.
  • A total of 10 to 12 sessions should achieve a long-lasting hair removal effect.
  • Hair falls out automatically and painlessly during the treatment.
  • You can use the Ulike Air 10 from home at any time.
  • The Ulike Air 10 keeps the skin cool with the help of sapphire ice cooling technology.
  • Unlike depilatory creams, the Ulike Air 10 does not need to be used every 2 days.
  • When you use depilatory creams, the hair grows back coarse and thick. But when you use the Ulike Air 10, the hair grows back much less thick and finer than the last time.

Ulike Air 10 Features

The Ulike Air 10 has the following features:

  • 4 treatment modes are designed for different skin types.

Depilatory creams do indeed help in removing pubic hair without pain, and so does the Ulike Air 10 . However, the disadvantage of depilatory creams is that the hair grows back within 1 to 2 days without losing any thickness or density. Therefore, one must continue to use the cream every 5 to 15 days, otherwise the hair may feel prickly. To solve this problem, the Ulike Air 10 helps reduce the speed, thickness and density of hair growth while providing a long-lasting, painless and safe solution for hair removal.
