I found this report in “Health and Beauty Salon” magazine (September 2002):
“Acadèmie takes control”
“To help control and slow down the re-growth of body hair, Acadèmie Paris has created the Acad’ Epil range. The active ingredients, capable of inhibiting keratinization of body hair, are combined with soothing, moisturising and antiseptic components. According to the company, hair becomes thinner, finer, lighter and more supple, and the development of in-growing hair is reduced. A post-depilatory salon treatment is available for use directly after waxing, to moisturise and calm skin irritations, which the client reapplies for two or three days at home. In addition, there are four retail products to follow this treatment through: Acad’ Epil Body Lotion (150ml) is for use on arms, legs and body; Acad’ Epil Sensitive Areas Cream (50ml) helps reduce irritations in sensitive areas (for men, it also calms and sooths razor burn); Acad’ Epil Roll-on Deodorant (60ml) – alcohol and preservative free – regulates perspiration and neutralises odours. Jica is UK distributer.
“Price: £68.26 (for one of each of the four items), excluding VAT. Alternatively, products can be bought individually; from £7.38 (Roll-on Deodorant), excluding VAT; rrp £17, including VAT; to £10.22 (Sensitive Areas cream), excluding VAT; rrp £18 including VAT.”
£7 UK is approx $10.50 US
£10 UK is approx $15 US
£17 UK is approx $22.50 US
£70 UK is approx. $105 US
VAT is UK Sales Tax, which is applied at point of sale at 17.5%
I think you’ll only be able to get the ‘after-waxing’ treatment from a salon. Though you might be able to get the other four from retail outlets.
The only contact I have is to go to www.enquire.to/HBS and quote enquiry number 174.
