Procter & Gamble Claims Invention Will Help Consumers Get Rid Of Unsightly Body Hair

December 17, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble filed a patent for an invention it claims will reduce the appearance of body hair when used as ingredients in cosmetics. Using a “film forming polymer” and a dermatological carrier, the ingredient can be incorporated with gels, creams, pastes, tonics, and other delivery systems. P&G claims its invention can meet consumer demand for products that reduce body hair without using less effective solutions, such as depilatory creams, shaving, and electrolysis.
