Depilatories use a chemical called thioglycolate mixed with sodium hydroxide or calcium hydroxide to literally the hair away. Thioglicolatedisrupts disulfide bonds that hold skin and hai together,these bonds contain more protien cysetin more than do the disulfide bonds that hold skin cells together. Thioglycolate is more effective on disulfide bonds that contain cysteine. The major side effect of depilatories is the irritation because the chemicals can melt away skin cells. a depilatory is applied on the areawith unwanted hairand left for3 to 15 minutes. During this time the chemical dissolves the hair and the resulting jelly-like substsnce is wiped or washed off after time. the chemicalshould be tested first on smaall area of skinat least 48 hours before applying it to alarge area. applying hydrocotisone cream after hair removalmay help decrease irritation
