Can we use wax cream

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by ShariahBoard.org
I would like to know if we (women) can use wax cream for eg: hair, to remove hair from hands and legs and one of the ingredient is glycerin in it.
Since, it is not necessary to practice waxing therefore if there are some haram ingredients involved then this practice would not be acceptable but if it becomes necessary then it would be allowable. You would have to assess your situation, and see how important it is for you to practice this. If your husband demands it and you have no choice but to do that then it’s fine, otherwise it is not.
