Essengen-5 NO PG FAST DRY: A professionally formulated hypoallergenic, non-greasy, fast drying 5% Minoxidil.
This product 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 in January, 2018 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 skin or 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.
If you want to use a minoxidil product with higher strength or with additional ingredients, you can check out other products we offer. You can see the comparison of all the products here.
This product is also very suitable for using on the face to grow a beard. New Jan 2023: we launched a new product called Maxogen-B, a 5% minoxidil product that is not only PG free but also alcohol free. We also boost its effectiveness by incorporating biotin and caffeine into the product.

For Women: Apply up to 1 mL of this product to your scalp that has hair loss using the included dropper, once daily. Best to be applied in the evening.
