Precautionary Statements

Avoid breathing vapors, mist, or spray. Contaminated work clothing must not be allowed out of the workplace. Avoid release to the environment. Wear protective gloves, protective clothing, and eye protection.

If on skin: Wash with plenty of water. If skin irritation or rash occurs: Get medical advice/attention.

Wash contaminated clothing before reuse.

Dispose of contents/container in accordance with local, regional, national, and international regulations.

Exposure may aggravate those with pre-existing eye, skin, or respiratory conditions.

Warnings: For external use only. Read enclosed directions and warnings carefully before using this product. Keep out of reach of children. Do not use product in area of the eye. Wax should not be used by people suffering from diabetes or circulatory problems or on areas with varicose veins, moles or warts. Do not wax inside of nose or ears, on nipples, perianal, vaginal/genital areas or eyelashes. Do not use on irritated, inflamed or broken skin. Not suitable for people with extra sensitive or problem skin. Not recommended for the elderly or people with loose skin. Do not apply wax over sunburned, chapped, broken or sore skin, cuts, weak scars or eczema. Do not use 24 hours before or after sunbathing. Do not use immediately after a bath. Do not use deodorant or antiperspirant for 24 hours after underarm hair removal. Do not ingest. Failure to follow these warnings may result in severe skin irritation, skin removal, burns or other injuries. Do a patch test before each use by applying the product to a small part of the area where hair is to be removed as described in step 1. Follow directions wait 24 hours. If skin appears normal, proceed. Never apply wax on same area within a 24 hour period. As with any wax treatment, some discomfort may be experienced. This can be reduced by removing the cloth strip quickly from taut skin. Your skin may turn a little red for a short while after treatment. This is normal and will soon disappear. If the skin to be treated is not held taut, and the cloth strip is not zipped or pulled back very fast and close to the skin, a pinching effect may be felt, a wax residue will remain on the skin, or worse, skin could be removed resulting in injury. Read the instructions carefully; proceed at all times with caution. Heat only in a microwave. Do not use in conventional or toaster oven. Microwaves vary in power output. Heating guidelines are an indication only. Take extreme caution when warming the wax not to overheat. Never leave the heating or heated wax unattended. Remember, the wax container will also become hot; therefore, we recommend placing it on a microwavable plate. Remember to use caution when handling, testing or applying the wax. Testing or applying the wax when it is too hot could cause you serious injury. In case of burn, immediately run cold water on the affected area for 10 minutes and seek medical attention.
