The Best Alternatives to Organic Hair Removal Creams

Why No Organic Hair Removal Creams?

There are a number of natural hair removal products, but all of them are gels and waxes--no creams in the mix. Why is that?

The truth is that it's very difficult to formulate hair removal products that are both effective and natural.

Think about it:
  • NAIR contains calcium hydroxide and sodium hydroxide, the two active ingredients that break down the hair on a chemical level
  • Veet contains thioglycolic acid and potassium hydroxide, the two active ingredients that dissolve the bonds holding together the keratin molecules in hair

All of these chemicals are very strong, and it's hard to find chemicals of similar strength in nature. Citric acid may be nearly as powerful, but then there's the other part of the equation: damage to your skin. By the time the citric acid has broken down your body hair, your skin will have been seriously burned by the acid.

While researchers and manufacturers continue to search for a combination of natural and organic ingredients that could dissolve the hairs like the above chemicals can, there have been no chemicals found to date.

Even though there are no effective organic hair removal creams on the market yet, there are alternative organic hair removal products you can use.

Here are the best organic and natural hair removal products available on the market: 

Amber Gel

Amber Gel isn't quite a wax, but it's a thick gel that dries and hardens on the skin, allowing you to rip it off.

Amber gel is designed to be effective even on very thin, downy facial hair, so you can use it pretty much anywhere without worrying about damaging your sensitive skin. Best of all, it's even possible for pregnant women to use it without risking the baby's health!

The gel soothes your skin while dealing with your hairs.

Amber can be used safely even on skin suffering from:

  • Varicose veins
  • Extreme sensitivity to heat and chemicals
  • Eczema

This product is not organic, but it is made with 100% natural ingredients. It has never been tested on animals, and it is completely free of additives and synthetic fragrances.

Nad's

This natural hair removal gel is similar to Amber Gel, though not quite as effective.

It's a thick cold wax that melts with the heat of your skin as it is applied, spreading evenly over your skin and gripping those hairs tightly. It's an easy-to-use product, and you can easily get rid of body hair no matter how thick or fine.​

Moom

Moom is the only organic hair removal products on the market, and that alone earns it top spot on this list.

While many of the other hair removal creams do contain organic and natural ingredients, Moom is the only one that is actually "Certified Organic".​

Moom is a natural type of wax that focuses on hair removal while leaving your skin healthy--thanks to the enriching nutrients it contains.

Moom contains ingredients like:​

  • Sugar
  • Lemon Juice
  • Essential Oil
  • Water
  • Chamomile
  • Rose
  • Tea Tree Oil
  • Lavender

The wax helps to soothe your skin as it gets rid of body hair, and it can deal with even stubborn hair without damaging the more sensitive body parts.

Moom is designed to get rid of hair for up to 2 months at a time, and it's formulated to avoid sticking with your skin as you rip it off.

The wax is USDA Certified Organic, made with food-grade ingredients, and free of all chemicals, artificial substances, and perfumes.

Packaging waste is minimal, the products are not tested on animals, and all of the jars and containers are recyclable. For a eco-friendly, all-natural product, it doesn't get better than Moom!
