Vaniqa (eflornithine HCl; Allergan) Cream 13.9% is currently unavailable due to a shortage of active ingredient, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 

Vaniqa, a hair growth retardant, is indicated to reduce unwanted facial hair in women. It is thought to work by irreversibly inhibiting skin ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) activity, an enzyme needed for the synthesis of polyamines. By inhibiting ODC, cell division and synthesis are blocked thus affecting the rate of hair growth.
