Cream depilatories are basically a very strong alkaline wash, but in cream form. Depilatories and alkaline washes will have no long-term effect on hair growth, as they only dissolve hair above the skin surface.

Alkaline wash is only good on fine, downy hairs. It is not strong enough to dissolve many coarse hair types.
