Q9: How do depilatories work?
Depilatories contain ingredients that work by breaking the bonds of hair. The bonds give hair strength and structure, so when you break these bonds, the hair can easily be wiped away and removed.
Q10: Why is it beneficial for the skin to use hair removal rather than razor shaving?
Depilatory creams work by dissolving the hair just below the surface of the skin whereas shaving sharply cuts the hair off at the skin surface. This means you’re not left with prickly stubble. Also, Nair™ products help moisturize and exfoliate your skin.

Yes, Nair™ products remove unwanted hair and exfoliate the skin's surface.
