• Essengen-5 NO PG FAST DRY: This product has 5% Minoxidil without any additional effective ingredient.  It is perfect for both men and women who are allergic to regular liquid minoxidil such as Rogaine or Kirkland minoxidil because of the propylene glycol in it. This product is free of propylene glycol (PG, PPG). Glycerin is used to replace propylene glycol to avoid scalp irritation.  It is estimated that 2 out of 10 users are allergic to propylene glycol. This product is also very suitable for those who do not like the greasiness of regular minoxidil and wish to have a clean and fast drying minoxidil. 

    New: Product with glycerin is usually associated with greasiness and slow absorption. We recently improved this formulation and made it dry extremely fast. We are confident to say that this new formula is the fastest drying and cleanest 5% minoxidil, liquid or foam, on the market. It dries even faster than 5% minoxidil foam. The product used to be called Essengen-5 NO PG. It was changed to Essengen-5 NO PG Fast Dry  since January, 2017 after the formulation had been improved.


    If you want to use a product with 5% minoxidil only (without any other ingredient like azelaic acid, or finasteride)  that is clean, non-greasy, fast drying, and good for sensitive scalp, this product is your perfect choice. Because this product is in liquid form, it works better than 5% minoxidil foam due to better penetration and absorption.

Very Good
Works as advertised; I had skin allergy to PG so this works very well. Dries quickly, I use a hair dryer also after a few minutes. Regular Rogaine leaves a yellowish stain on pillows and car seats (likely from PG) which this one doesn't!!!!
Works as expected. Recommended!
This product works as expected, it's really good for sensitive scalps. I really recommend it.
A Miracle!!
I tried regular Rogaine and WalMart brand several years back, but my head started itching so badly I couldn't stand it and gave up.(I do have sensitive skin.) Well, several years have passed since then and I had continued to lose hair. I have had a ton of stress and my hair literally fell out over about 3 months..I would say 1/3 fell out. I had a bald spot where men get one and I couldn't comb enough hair over it to not have it show. My hair stylist even panicked. My friend convinced me to try Rogaine again. I was desperate enough to do so. Well, again, after a few months, I was itching. I was about to give up. I had bought anti-itch liquid to squirt on my head, and even that couldn't stop it. So I came online and found EssenGen-5 No PG Fast Dry. I doubted I would have any luck, but guess what? I am on my third bottle with absolutely no itching. It continues to work, and I only use it once a day, not twice. I rarely write reviews, but I want to give credit where it is due. I order about 3 bottles at a time. They have fast delivery also. BTW, I am a 67 year old woman who was born with fine thin hair, so you can imagine I didn't have much to work from. BUT I am so happy that at least I can have enough hair to comb over. I also color my hair every 4 weeks, and this product has not affected it. I am so happy to have found something that works that I can use long-term. I was so sad and thought I would just keep going more bald. Thank God for this product!
did not work
Unfortunately it did not work for me
Better than Foam
The product works as described. Easy to use, dries fast. Works better than foam.
Solved my problem!
My scalp became uncomfortably itchy and flaky after using regular minoxidil after several weeks. I researched what might be causing this and found out it could be an allergy to PG. Started using this product and problem solved! I have continued using it regularly and my hair loss is under control. Pricewise it’s much more expensive than store brands of minoxidil, but I have no choice. Would like to know why getting the PG out increases the price and why the price of this product has been going up. Would love to find a cheaper alternative that works as well as this one.
This is a brilliant product
Regular liquid 5% minoxidil gave me good results. But it gave unbearable itchiness after half a year. I started with some minor itchiness. But the it became worse and worse. I then tried foam but apparently foam didn't work me. I lost a lot of ground when I was using foam for 3 months. I have used this product for 3 months. I can't be any happier. I have zero itch, it dries in a few minutes. and the hair regrowth is going strong. I just wished that I found this product early. Cheer!
