 What are razor bumps?
Psuedofolliculitis barbae, also known as PFB, is the medical term associated with the problems involving razor bumps. The condition, although highly prevalent amongst African-American males with curly hair, it is not necessarily an African-American problem only. Anyone with the propensity for curly hair can be prone to experience the condition. Simply put, as the hair is created in a curved or bent follicle, it is formed in an ovoid pattern creating a somewhat coarser hair that exits the skin at an angle and when cut on an angle bevels the hair into a needlepoint making re-entry into the skin easier. When that hair re-enters the skin a bump is formed, with subsequent inflammation and possibly even infection.

How does Bump Stopper Razor Bump Treatment work?

  1. Bump Stopper Razor Bump Treatment works by gently exfoliating or casting away the skin surrounding the bump, thus exposing the ingrown hair.
  2. Bump Stopper Razor Bump Treatment neutralizes any inflammation or infection.
  3. Bump Stopper Razor Bump Treatment minimizes the coarse structure of the hair, thereby making re-entry back into the skin much more difficult.

Only Bump Stopper Razor Bump Treatment uses this threefold approach to successfully treat your razor bump condition.

We believe our product line to be so effective that we back every item with a money back guarantee. It is important to note that we've been treating this condition successfully for over 35 years. We were first and we're still the leader! BUMP STOPPER WORKS!!!

Is Bump Stopper approved by the FDA?

Answer: FDA does not approve or sanction cosmetic products like Bump Stopper.

Any other products that are presently marketed that claims to prevent or mitigate razor bumps or razor rash that were not the market prior to this review require a New Drug Application to be legally marketed and sold in the USA. Currently, there are no approved New Drug Applications on file for products to treat this condition. Nor do any other products currently marketed meet a cosmetic criteria. Only Bump Stopper has this distinction. FDA has not had any regulatory issues with Bump
Stopper since its inception.
