anti-hair-growth

This if it works could lead to a product, for instance a hydrating gel for women that also suppresses hair growth. What do you think of that idea?

    Is this being made for general manufacture or there are some patent prohibitions on it?


    I once knew about the Gymnema sylvestre, main extract, being used for diabetes.
  • For marketing purposes - yes.
  • I'd like to see a study with a larger sample size, longer testing time, and something that accounts for the varying growth phases each hair follicle could be in.
  • Hmmm. The extract is not too expensive at around $100 / kg and a usage rate of 5% implying a per product kilo cost of $5. I think I will formulate a test product, probably a women's aftershave gel or cream that also inhibits regrowth.

    If it worked, it would be a drug (at least in the US) and wouldn't be legal to sell.

    However, if it did work you could get an NDA and I'm sure it would make millions.
