Active Ingredient of Eflora:
?Eflornithine Topical?is the main active pharmaceutical ingredient present in?Eflora Cream. Eflornithine Hydrochloride is used by female patients to slow down undesirable hair growth. Patients usually use this medication in combination with other treatments.
Working of Eflora:
Eflora cream contains Eflornithine hydrochloride. It works by blocking the certain natural substances, which are located in the hair follicle that is needed for hair to grow on the face. Eflornithine hydrochloride prevents the production of ornithine decarboxylase enzyme found in hair follicles deep within the skin by preventing the production of protein in these hair follicles by blocking cell division, thus decreasing the rate of hair production. Eflora only reduces the amount of unwanted hair but not remove it completely.
