It is a good moisturizer for down below. As for the slowing of hair growth, I really can't say. I haven't been using it very long. It's been about 4 wks since my last waxing and while I have some growth, it doesn't appear to be a lot. I was about every six weeks (give or take 1 week) but I don't have fast hair growth to begin with. I'm hoping overtime it will be less and less with regular use.
