Pseudofolliculitis barbae, better known to black men as, "razor bumps", occur on the faces of men with coarse, wiry, curly hair. Between fifty and eighty percent of African-American men live with the problem of ingrown hairs and razor bumps, daily.
Razor bumps itch, burn, can cause scarring, and make shaving virtually impossible. Many Black men have resorted to depilatory creams which seem to work significantly better than blades. However, some depilatories, if not used correctly, may irritate the skin.
Cortisone-based creams have also been available for some time, but many cannot be used long-term due to blood stream absorption and other side effects.
