Although minoxidil 5% foam does not work as well as 5% minoxidil solution (See Why is Minoxidil Liquid Better than Foam?), some people prefer to use minoxidil foam as it dries fast and easy to use. As Rogaine's patent expired in 2012, private label companies started to offer 5% minoxidil foam products. These minoxidil foam products are usally marketed under various store brands. These private label minoxidil foam products claim to have the same effectiveness as Rogaine 5% Foam Hair Regrowth Treatment.
Rogaine 5% Foam is a treatment for the regrowth of hair on the top of the scalp and its estimated annual sales are approximately $60 million. The first shipment of private label minoxidil foam took place in Feb 2011.
Very few companies in the world offer private label of this product due to the technical challenge.
Private label 5% liquid minoxidil has been availble long before the foam product. The big-box stores such as Walmart and Target or national chain drug store such as Walgreen and CVS have their own priveately label brands. The minimum quantity requirement is very high for private labelling. That is why only those big-box stores or the national major drugs stores can afford it.
