Formula 103 Mild/Regular is for men with a lighter beard and/or with very sensitive skin.   Similar to the Extra Strength version of the product but milder, it even further reduces the chance of skin irritation. In the past, Treasured Locks has not recommended depilatories to prevent the razor bumps that plague so many black men. Old-fashioned depilatories are so hard on the skin that they often cause more problems than they prevent. We have offered other solutions that have helped many men use a razor again or for the first time. However, with the discovery of Formula 103, we can offer a razorless alternative to those men who want to use a chemical shave system, for whatever reason.

Formula 103 is a depilatory developed especially for the shaving needs of African-American men. Formula 103 is formulated to be soothing and healing for men's skin. Formula 103 Facial Hair Removal Cream softens the hair and dissolves it without damaging the root. It also moisturizes the skin so much that you will not even need an after shave. Consequently, the formation of bumps is prevented. Perfected after six years of intensive laboratory research and testing in five countries, Formula 103´┐Ż Facial Hair Removal Cream can remove even the coarsest hair. Formula 103 has a unique herbal fragrance.

Formula 103 Features:
  • Formulated especially for black men
  • Helps eliminate razor bumps
  • Formulated with Herbazine´┐Ż
  • Contains a unique anti-irritant

Key Ingredients:
  • Aloe Vera Gel
  • Cocoa Butter
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Herbazine

Is this a product that can be used on a daily basis? Or, must your skin have a "recovery period"?
By Treasured Locks Staff on May 28, 2012

It can be used every 24 hours (once a day).

By JC from TX on September 24, 2012
Can this product be used on other parts of the body other than the face? i.e similar places as in the women version of formula 103?
By Treasured Locks Staff on September 24, 2012

This product is intended only for the facial area. The Legs & Bikini product should be used for other areas.

Will this product work on my skin if I am not African American? I am Caucasian and have relatively sensitive skin, and I have the worst time with facial shaving. For a few days after shaving, especially on my neck, the skin is really sore and develops tiny pimples and red bumps where I shaved. It's embarrassing, but I look even worse with facial hair. I've been looking at other products that claim to work on men's facial hair, like Veet, but many customers complain about painful chemical burns when used on sensitive skin. Do you think that Formula 103 could work on my face?
By Treasured Locks Staff on March 19, 2012

Formula 103 was developed for and tested on African hair and skin types.

can I use it on my head?
By Treasured Locks Staff on March 18, 2013

There is a product formulated for the bald look. It's Formula 103 Sport. You can find it here:

We suggest using Formula 103 Sport for your head.

When i saw the reviews for this product online, i was one of the doubting Thomas and i had thought this was one the rest of them. I had tried several facial hair removal creams but they did not work for me at all. So i reluctantly purchased this cream expecting to get little or no result. To my amazement, the cream removed my coarse chin hair in less than 10 minutes and the dark bumps on my face disappeared. This is indeed a MIRACLE product. It didn't burn me or damage my skin. I would highly recommend this product for an end to shaving problems.

Doesn't Work
April 21, 2014
This was the worst shave cream I've ever used. I've been using shave creams since they started. This company just has the formula all wrong. I had to switch from Magic Shave Cream because they changed their formula. I went back to the gold can which is messy but works.

Is it supposed to feel like your getting a chemical burn???
March 31, 2014
This isn't for sensitive skin. It BURNS. It does remove the hair. It smells really chemical-like. I threw it out.

The best..
September 23, 2013
I tried formula 103 once before and it worked great, but it was a little on the expensive side compared to magic cream shave, half the price for twice as much. I relearned an old lesson, you get what you pay for. It removes the hair a lot closer to the root and isn't as harsh on my skin. This is one great product.

Excellent Product
December 30, 2012
I have been using this product for about a year now and I have to say it is worth every last cent. My face and neck were covered with the most unsightly razor bumps. I used Magic Shave Powder and that got rid of most of them and then I switched to this and now they are pretty much completely gone. It is definitely less messy than Magic Shave and I get the best results when I let it sit on my face while im showering and washing my body. My self confidence has shot up and I am very very thankful to have found this product. I dont know about others but I shave about once every 3 days so it lasts me awhile, but I guess they could add more for the price. I recommend this to everyone, but be careful because the chemicals may be too much for some people.

After the recommended test patch, and the 8 minutes I started to wipe it off because I was experiencing discomfort and little to no hair came off. What did come of was patches of my skin. It left my face beet red but later on the redness dissipated. My face was left with extreme discomfort and about 20 or so centimeter wide cuts. I don't have particularly sensitive skin so I would not recommend this product if you have sensitivity at all.

Serious razor bump problem when I shaved. With this new product, my issues with razor bumps have reduced significantly, although not completely rid of. Skin looks much better.

I have been using this product over all the other facial hair removal creams. This one does work the best. I rated it a 4 instead of 5 because the price is high.

Extremely easy to use, and a great product!

I understand why so many other products on the market have declined to continue their effort to produce a product for men with sensitive skin. This product has knocked them out of their labs. Thank you kindly, for creating this product. What a blessing to have discovered this product. Thank you!

Works Well
April 24, 2012
The cream worked wonders but irritated my skin so much I would bleed when removing the cream. I have really sensitive skin, however, so I be one of the few who can't use the cream. For those of you who don't have extremely sensitive skin, you'll love it!

Great product
March 23, 2012
Yes, it stings a bit but it's better than shaving. Shaving leaves stubborn little hairs and makes them grow thicker; but with this cream the area remains hair-free for a few weeks. Satisfied and would def. recommend.
