Hair removal wax removes unwanted hair from the roots through waxing. When the skin applies wax, the sticky substance sticks to the body's hair. Pulling on the covering removes the hair from the follicle. Using wax for hair removal removes unwanted hair in a semi-permanent way. After waxing, the hair in that area does not grow for two to eight weeks. However, hair regrowth starts within a week in some people. You can use hair removal wax to treat almost any place, including the brow, arm, face, abdomen, intimate area, and feet. Someone applied a thin layer of wax to the skin. After that, you push a paper or fabric strip onto the wax layer. Tear off the strip of paper or fabric toward hair growth. This way removes both hair and wax.

Market Dynamics

Middle East and Africa Hair Removal Wax Market Drivers

Increasing Disposable Income

Hair removal wax demand is rising in the region because of the growing middle class. According to the World Bank, Sub-Saharan Africa's middle class will grow from 400 million in 2010 to 1.1 billion by 2060. From 2017 through 2022, the IMF expects the Middle East's middle class to rise by 3.5% annually. Body hair reduction is significant in many Middle Eastern and African cultures. Egyptian women consider hair removal from their legs, arms, underarms, and bikini area hygienic. In Saudi Arabia, men and women remove their hair. This cultural emphasis on hair removal drives hair removal wax demand in these countries.
