C. Features Comparison:

DualGen-15 NO PG PlusThe most potent hair loss treatment we offer. Active ingredients: Minoxidil 15%Finasteride 0.1%, ABN complexTM 0.8%, Azelaic acid 5%, Retinol 0.025% and Caffeine 0.001%. It is intended for men with advanced hair loss. It is most suitable for those who used Dualgen-15 NO PG for at least 4 months without satisfactory results. It is Recommended to use DualGen-15 NO PG Plus once daily in the evening in conjunction with a lower strength solution such as Essengen-6 Plus, Dualgen-5, or Essengen-5 once daily in the morning.

DualGen-15 With PG Plus: This product has the same effective ingredients and is equally potent as Dualgen-15 NO PG Plus. The only difference is that this product has propylene glycol (PG), while Dualgen-15 NO PG Plus does not. If you are known to be allergic to PG, please choose Dualgen-15 NO PG PlusOtherwise, it is recommended to use Dualgen-15 With PG Plus as the NO PG version is slightly greasier than the With PG version.

Essengen-F: This product was developed in response to the request by some customers who want to have a product with topical finasteride only (without minoxidil).This product has 0.2%  finasteride, equivalent to 1 mg finasteride per 0.5 ML of solution. This is a fast drying, non-greasy topical product. It dries in a few minutes. One unit is sufficient for 4 months of supply with once daily usage (0.5 mL per application).


Dualgen-15 NO PGThe same as Dualgen-15 NO PG Plus minus finasteride.  It is recommended to use this product before using Dualgen-15 NO PG Plus. It is best for those who want to have the strongest minoxidil product without finasteride


DualGen-15 With PGThe same as Dualgen-15 NO PG except that this product is compounded with propylene glycol as the vehicle. It is best for those (1) who want to have the strongest minoxidil product without finasteride and (2) who are not allergic to propylene glycol


DualGen-10This product contains 10% Minoxidil and 5% Azelaic Acid, ABN complexTM, Retinol and Caffeine, with a good balance between effectiveness and convenience.  This product contains propylene glycol. It dries faster than the aforementioned 15% minoxidil products.  It is recommended to use this product twice daily with at least 8 hours between the two applications. It can be used in conjunction with a lower strength minoxidil solution (such as Essengen-6 Plus, Dualgen-5, or Essengen-5). In this case, you should use DualGen-10 once daily and the lower strength minoxidil solution once daily as well. The two applications should be at least 8 hours apart.


Essengen-6 PlusIt is a 6% minoxidil solution with 0.05% topical finasteride. This is a very clean and easy to use solution that dries very fast (it dries as quickly as our Essengen-5 Fast dry, see below). For those who are not very satisfied with regular minoxidil such as Kirkland or Rogaine, this is a very good option. The result from this product is expected to be similar or even better than using 5% minoxidil with oral finasteride (Propecia) daily. The total amount of finasteride in 2 mL of this solution is 1mg.  It means if you use this solution (1mL) twice daily, you are using 1mg of finasteride a day. Since you apply the solution to your scalp, the amount of finasteride that goes into your blood is expected to be less than if you were taking 1mg finasteride orally. Therefore, one is less likely to have side effects from finasteride compared to taking the same amount of finasteride orally.


We currently have 3 different versions of Dualgen-5, namely Dualgen-5 NO PG, Dualgen-5 With PG  and Dualgen-5 Fast Dry (launched in 2017).  All have 5% minoxidil and 5% azelaic acid. The effectiveness of these 3 products is similar to each other. The difference mainly lies in the solvent vehicle, gentleness to scalp and drying speed.

          Dualgen-5 NO PG: Most friendly to sensitive scalp. Dries slowest among the 3 products.

          Dualgen-5 Fast Dry: Dries fastest. Friendly to sensitive scalp.

         Dualgen-5 With PG: Medium drying speed. Medium friendly to sensitive scalp.


Essengen-5 NO PG FAST DRY: Launched in 2017. A super fast drying, itch free 5% minoxidil. It dries even faster than 5% minoxidil foam. It is propylene glycol free too so people who are allergic to regular minoxidil can try this product.  Use this product twice daily.


Lipogaine for women (regular): 2% Minoxidil together with biotin, niacin and other auxiliary effective ingredients. It is compounded with propylene glycol. This product is intended for women, but men can use it too. Recommended to use twice daily.


Lipogaine for women (sensitive):  3% Minoxidil together with biotin, niacin and other auxiliary  effective ingredients. It is free of propylene glycol, and suitable for those who are allergic to PG. Can be used by men as well. Recommended to use twice daily.
