I’ve been a proponent of waxing and also recommended it to Baccy for his Follica experiment. I’ve been reading up on the hair removal and found that Epilation actually means hair removal methods that remove hair from the root i.e. Braun epilators, waxing, sugaring etc and in Depilation only the visible hair is removed i.e. shaving, Nair cream etc.
The Follica patent specifically mentions Depilation (which is shaving, Nair cream etc), which is weired because these methods just remove hair from top so they shouldn’t result in 7-11 fold increase in hair growth - as mentioned in the patent. What do you guys think. Is it a mistake on Follica’s part? Did Baccy’s second experiment not produce any result because he waxed his hair which he did Not do in the first experiment.
If this is a mistake on Follica’s part, wouldn’t that render their patent useless? because now anyone can wax existing hair and then follow through with follica’s patent thus creating new hair But bypassing the law?
