Depilatory Agents

Depilatory agents are chemical ingredients added to cosmetics to remove unwanted hair. These agents function by dissolving the keratin (a protein that gives strength to hair) in the hair shaft. A depilatory agent can be either formulated as a gel, a lotion or a cream. The most commonly used depilatory agents are thioglycolates and sulfides.
