Advice on hair removal

The Danish Environmental Protection Agency’s advice on hair removal

Chemical depilatory agents

  • Carefully read all the product information and instructions for use before using, and follow all the instructions precisely.

  • 24 hours before using the product, test it on a small area of skin from which you wish to remove hair. Use the product only if after 24 hours there is no sign of hypersensitivity or irritation. The test does not, however, provide any guarantee against later reactions, so even if you have used depilatory products before, you should perform the test every time.

  • The product should not be used if you have acne, varicose veins, beauty spots or warts, or damaged, irritated, thin or dry skin.

  • Check whether the instructions for use state that the product may be used on the face, chest and bikini line, as this will depend on the product type (cream, gel or spray), and the skin is especially sensitive in these areas.

  • Make sure your skin is completely clean and dry before applying the product.

  • Never exceed the stated time for the product to remain on your skin. Remember that it may be necessary to apply the product to one leg or to a small amount of skin at a time in order to ensure that the time allowed is not exceeded. The time should be measured from the time you begin to apply the product until it has been entirely removed – not from the time you have finished applying the product to large areas of skin and until you begin to remove it.

  • Even if the hair was not sufficiently removed at the first attempt, you should wait at least 48 hours before repeating the treatment.

  • Always make sure to wash off the depilatory agent thoroughly with plenty of lukewarm water at the end of the treatment. A greasy layer may be formed on the skin due to the high pH value, which can be difficult to rinse off.

  • If you experience a burning, smarting or irritating sensation on your skin, you should immediately remove the product with lots of water. If there is any subsequent clear irritation of the skin or burns, seek medical help.

  • After the treatment your skin may be extra sensitive, so you should not use creams or other cosmetic products containing alcohol, perfume or other potentially irritating or dehydrating ingredients on the treated skin.

Wax

  • Always read the information and instructions for use carefully, and follow them precisely.

  • When using warm wax, make sure it is not too hot when applied to the skin, to avoid burns.If there is any sign of irritation, eczema or burning sensations, stop the treatment immediately and remove all the wax.

  • If you experience a burning, smarting or irritating sensation on your skin, you should immediately remove the product with lots of water.

  • If there is any subsequent clear irritation of the skin or burns, seek medical help.

  • After the treatment your skin may be extra sensitive, so you should not use creams or other cosmetic products containing alcohol, perfume or other potentially irritating or dehydrating ingredients on the treated skin.
