Blessing of the oriental technique - threading

Threading is an age old technique, tried - tested and refined by generations of many more practitioners than any other technique. It is one of the gifts of eastern civilizations both India and Egypt  It’s a very simple (at least it appears so) and cost effective technique . For minor problems of unwanted hair where areas are not that spread out over body it can applied effectively and in the space of personal privacy.
Some people like Get Threaded have revised and refined the art to a next level in line with modern life.
No harm at all, in finding out what could have been tried and endorsed Cleopatra herself.
Off course threading followed by usage of Romantaque will certainly add a couple of days between the next feel of the need. for next session

Biopower pips Laser - Article in PCQuest - circa January 2007

Partial extract from an article on Hair Growth Inhibitor
A bio start-up in Pune challenges the Laser market for permanent hair removal with a unique plant-derived chemical solution
If you thought that love stories culminate only at aisles and lifelong-knots, here’s a couple with a fresh script. They met, fell in love, tied the knot and vowed for lifelong partnership like any other dove-deuce. 

The story however, starts then. It takes off from the altar, steps into a laboratory and then enters the business corridors where life partners turn into business partners and give birth to their first offspring: Mindfarm Novatech.

From Valentines to assembly lines

Bhushan Vishwanath met Mrinmayee, a microbiologist, when she, as a research student, was working on a protein synthesis study. The cupid hit and soon the couple got married. 

It was that day when Vishwanath made clear that while he would be the breadwinner for the family, Mrinmayee would continue to invest her time in something that is of intellectual significance, and contributes something lasting to the world. In short, she would continue with her research and explore fresh horizons without time or other constraints. 

Little did they know then, that a pursuit of mind could lead them into a new business territory altogether. Mrinmayee, who used her kitchen as a makeshift laboratory, embarked upon a thrilling idea while she was continuing her work on protein synthesis inhibitors. She hit upon a solution that can use plant-derived chemical for permanent follicle destruction, if applied according to the cyclical nature of hair-growth. After a series of checks like animal tests, toxicology studies and human tests, she materialized a tangible and much-cheaper alternative to the laser treatment for permanent hair-removal by using cytotoxic lectins – a well known group of molecules (commonly perceived to be dermally inactive) that can effect permanent follicle destruction with even negligible dermal absorption rates. 

After receiving all the requisite certifications from National Toxicology Lab, Pune and FDA, the couple morphed their marriage into a new joint venture. With Mrinmayee as the head of research and Bhushan at the helm of the marketing and business activities, they have successfully incubated the cheaper, bio-alternative for laser, in the form of an herbal cream.

Milking the cream

Mrinmayee Bhushan, microbiologist and director, and Bhushan Vishwanath, director, Mindfarm Novatech, have clearly betted big on this venture with their personal savings ...............

OFF WITH HER HAIR - What's the big idea ? Femina Oct 2010

Here is a reproduction of an article published about Romantaque and Mrinmayee in Femina in the issue of 06th October 2010, written by Panna Saroopa.  It is on page 178-179 Femina of October 06, 2010 issue.

What’s the big idea?
We, as women, innovate every day. The only way to stay in the game is by discovering smarter ways to do everything. But imagine if your brainwave transformed your community or created a vision for the future. Our campaign celebrates such ideas and the women behind them. We bring you their inspiring stories in every issue. And if you already have a Big Idea or know of someone who has, write to us at with ‘What’s The Big Idea’ in the subject line. Happy inventing!
Off with Her Hair
Mrinmayee Bhushan’s Hairminator is a herbal cream that promises to permanently and painlessly put your razor and waxing strips to rest. By Panna Saroopa
To never have to wax again is a dream that drives women in hordes to laser clinics. It propels them to hand out wads of cash without flinching, since when you do the accounts, a lifetime of waxing jobs probably add up to more than any clinic would charge you to nip the problem in the bud. But imagine a hair cream, available over the counter, that postpones those waxing jobs by stunting hair growth? Mrinmayee Bhushan’s invention, the Hairminator, a herbal cosmetic cream, promises to do just that. It is probably the first of its kind in India. The Hairminator is patented hair growth inhibitor and promises you‘ll be hair-free for months.
The Hairminator has been 37-year-oldPune-based microbiologist Mrinmayee’s pet project for over a decade. “The Cream to be applied after hair is removed by waxing, epilation, plucking or threading. It has to be used daily for week, twice a day,” explains Mrinmayee. “The actives present in the product seep into the follicle and stunt its capacity to grow hair.” If you repeatedly use the cream on your skin after each waxing / threading session, the results Mrinmayee promises are gratifying. She says,”Even when the product use is not so consistent, the regrowth is weaker, thinner and lighter. You can go months without hair removal.
Mrinmayee’s aunt inspired her invention. “During my post-graduation a relative of mine was going through menopause. She was so conscious of her facial hair that she didn’t to step out of her home” says Mrinmayee. “Unwanted hair is the bane of modern women- both old and young – and I decided to do something about it. At that time I was in college, studying protein synthesis and protein synthesis inhibitors, and it suddenly struck me one day that this particular category of substances could be used for hair growth inhibition. That was the moment of truth.”
The patenting process for Hairminator was a long and expensive one, but it resulted in Mrinmayee appearing for the patent agent examination herself.  Till date, her product has been credited with four patents – in India, Australia, South Africa and the UK. “I received a grant from the Department of Science and Technology and from the head of Techno-Entrepreneurship Promotion Programme. Which helped me improve the product even more.” says Mrinmayee.
Mrinmayee and her husband Bhushan floated a company called Mindfarm Novatech in 2003. “We documented innovative concepts and products, but the idea of hair growth inhibition topped my chart as the big idea,” says Mrinmayee whose perseverance was rewarded when the Maharashtra Government’s Food and Drug Administration gave them the license to manufacture the product in 2006. Soon the product – Romantaque, nicknamed – Hairminator was ready to be patented and hit the market. It’ll be available in stores like Apna Bazaar and Reliance. Deeply influenced by the different take Ayurveda offers to modern scientific researches like her, Mrinmayee is planning to use the ancient science to open up new leads to health issues like obesity, cardiovascular disease, lipomatosis and chemoprevention. As she puts it, “My dream is to create cost effective, all natural and side effects free cures that will link modern science and Ayurveda closely”.

Already a plenty of stuff is already written on the subject matter. You search for it over net and information would be available in tons, flooding  and making you clue less on the possible plan of action.

Of course what is missing is Epilation from  TWEPing  (TWEP – Threading –Waxing-Epilating- and Plucking) to be followed up by Romantaque. Complete solution that works is still not accessible for the world at large. But you know, it’s a matter a couple of months when Romantaque will be available again.

We would also add application of Romantaque after step 6 in above clip. However that will take some time others too recommend this step of applying Romantaque post waxing or sugaring.
Yes, you can also check out the other clips suggested by youtube based on  the experiences of visitors who were there before you.
