(2 oz is a 4 month supply)

  • Essengen-F is a topical finasteride only product (without minoxidil).

    This product has 0.2%  finasteride, equivalent to 1 mg finasteride per 0.5 ML of solution.

    One unit is 2 oz (60 ml), sufficient for 4 months of supply with once daily usage (0.5 mL per application). 

    If you have a large hair loss area and 0.5ml is not sufficient to cover it, you can use our PG Solvent to dilute this product to make 0.1% finasteride. Therefore, you can use 1 ml and still receive 1 mg per application.

    This is a fast drying, non-grease topical product. It dries in a few minutes. 


    This product is also convenient for those who want to receive more than 1 mg finasteride daily dosage.

    Following is the volume/dosage exchange rate.

    0.5 mL: 1 mg finasteride

    1.0 mL: 2 mg finasteride

    2.0 mL: 4 mg finasteride



  • 0.2% Finasteride ( 2 mg of finasteride in every 1 ML).


  • Water, Alcohol, Propylene Glycol (low amount)

    The amount of propylene glycol (PG) in this formula is extremely low. Even if you are extremely sensitive to PG, it is highly unlikely that you will be allergic to this formula.  In the rare event that you do experience an allergic reaction to this product, you can always contact us for a refund.

  • Using the included dropper, apply up to 0.5 mL Essengen-F directly on the scalp in the hair loss area, once daily. 






    How long does one unit last?

    A: One unit is 60 ml (2oz). If you used 0.5 ml per application as recommended, it will last for approximately 4 months. It costs less than one dollar a day.


    I found that 0.5 ml is not sufficient to cover all the hair loss area, should I use more?

    A. Please note that only a very thin film is needed to cover the area of hair loss. Typically, 0.5ml is ample for most individuals. Properly applied, this amount should effectively cover the hair loss area, even for those with advanced hair loss (such as Hamilton-Norwood scale stage IV - V).

    Should you have an extensive hair loss area that necessitates more than 0.5ml, our PG Solvent or PG Free Solvent can be utilized to dilute the product, reducing the concentration and allowing for a larger volume of use while maintaining the same finasteride daily dosage.

    1). To make 0.1% topical finasteride, mix one unit of Essengen-F (60 ml) with one unit of PG solvent (60ml),  and you get 120 ml of 0.1% topical finasteride (1 mg per ml).

    2) To make 0.05% topical finasteride,  mix 20 ml of Essengen-F (you can use the included dropper to measure the volume) with one unit of PG solvent (60ml),  and you get 80 ml of 0.05% topical finasteride (0.5 mg per ml).

    3) To make 0.025% topical finasteride,  mix 8.5 ml of Essengen-F with one unit of PG solvent (60ml),  and you get 68.5 ml of 0.025% topical finasteride (0.25 mg per ml).

    4) To make 0.01% topical finasteride,  mix 3.1 ml of Essengen-F with one unit of PG solvent (60ml),  and you get 63.1 ml of 0.01% topical finasteride (0.1 mg per ml).

    5) To make 0.005% topical finasteride,  mix 1.6 ml of Essengen-F with one unit of PG solvent (60ml),  and you get 61.6 ml of 0.005% topical finasteride (0.05 mg per ml).


    How long will I see results?

    A: It usually takes 3 to 4 months to see results. In other words, you should see some difference after finishing one unit. Consistency is the key to the success. To obtain the best result, it is important to use it every day. It is recommended to use it in the evening and wash your hair in the morning (no need to use shampoo every time. Rinsing out with water will be fine).  


    Will I experience any regression if I switch from finasteride pill to Essengen-F?

    A. This is product is perfect for those who are taking finasteride pills and concerned about its side effects. One is not expected to have any regression as a result of switching from finasteride pill to Essengen-F. 


    Is this product stable? Can I stock more than one year of supply?

    A. The product has a shelf life of 3 years when stored at room temperature. It is perfectly fine to purchase one year of supply (3 units) at a time. No need to store in a refrigerator. 


    Why should I use this Essengen-F instead of finasteride pill?

    A. The shorter answer is that Essengen-F works the same as finasteride pill (Propecia as brand name) while less likely to have side effects.  That is because the topical formulation has more of a localized effect, so systemic side effects (side effects which effect the entire body), such as decreased libido; erectile dysfunction and those seen with oral form may be avoided. For more detailed information, read here.  


    I have a large hair loss area. 0.5 ml is not enough to cover all the area. What should I do?

    A. 0.5 ml should be able to cover a pretty large area when it is applied properly. In addition, it is not necessary to cover all in each application. You can alternate the areas in different applications to ensure the product is evenly distributed overall. 

    You can also mix 2 oz Essengen-F with 2 oz of PG solvent. You end up with a 4 oz 0.1% topical finasteride solution, which will allow you to use 1.0ml per application per day and one unit still lasts for 4 months. You can order the PG solvent here.


    How can I make a lower concentration of topical finasteride?

    A. The concentration of finasteride (0.2%) in this product is suitable for the majority of people. Some people who are super sensitive to finasteride may want to have a lower concentration. This can be easily achieved by mixing this product with our PG Solvent.

Can't recommend it enough
I began using Essengen F after a very bad phase of hair loss. I had been losing my hair for around two years, but it progressed so rapidly this year in April. I went to get a blood analysis and found out that my DHT level were well above normal . I was very reluctant on taking finasteride due to the known side effects, that's when I found Essengen-F, a topical finasteride solution. Now on my third month and the results have been impressive. I cannot recommend it enough!

amazing product
Hi all. Around November I started using Essengen-F. I am over the moon with the results so far. I am only 23 years old and have pretty bad hairloss. It runs in the family and also a semi-stressful job clearly doesn't help. Was copping it every day from friends and family so went and did something about it. Haven't told many people about the treatment, I just wanted it to speak for itself. When I first started using it, there was insane baby hair growth but has slowed down a little bit. There are still plenty of new hairs coming through on my hairline though. I notice my hair is getting thicker all the time also. I assume that because of my age the treatment has worked very effectively. Have been told that full results do not show until around 18 months. Have a look at the pictures for yourself. I have noticed my hair colour has slightly changed to be darker. I assume this is because more blood is flowing to my roots thanks to the Min. The only thing I regret is not starting this earlier. Apologies as the photos are slightly different angles as I was doing the second ones myself compared to someone else doing them.

Topical finasteride only product
It took me quite a while to find this product. I do not want to use any minoxidil and I am scared of the side effects of oral finasteride. This is a perfect product for me. Used this product for only 3 weeks. Too early to tell if works. But the product dries super quick, very easy to use. so far I am confident.

4 month review on topical finasteride
After using this product for almost 4 months now i can say without a doubt its the most effective product that ive ever used. The first picture is of me during the first week of when i first started using. I also shaved my head to a specific length so to compare it to now. I have used no other products other than this and it just goes to show how effective and powerful it is. Certainly i will be using this again.

Very pleased
Very pleased with the product virtually side effect free, as a female in my fifties with very thinning hair this product has been god sent, not only did it stop the hair loss but in addition has increased hair growth despite using it only every other day. Very easy to apply no harsh smell, after applying I can literally comb my hair and go out for the evening. I am happy that they offer just Finesteride alone, I have low blood pressure and couldn't chance minoxidil,excellent product for thinning eyebrows too, the product may sound spendy but it lasts forever and its excellent quality i have spent more on just shampoos that promised hairgrowth with no results,this product produces results fast and steady, they have a permanent customer right here

This is the Best!
Honestly, this is the best. I believe the 'DHT itch' is real (google it if you don't know). I'd have a constant itch, even though my scalp looked perfectly healthy. My scalp was so itchy and I was experiencing extra hair loss. Essengen-F helped take care of both problems.. Thank you! I mix one full bottle of Essengen-F with one full bottle of PG Free Solvent (which is sold on this site. This mixture makes 0.1% of topical finasteride per 1mL). I apply 2-2.5mL amount every night. No side effects at all. Dear Minoxidilmax, PLEASE DON'T EVER STOP MAKING THIS PRODUCT! I am a lifetime buyer.

Great product, it saved my hair
I have been using Essengen F for a year now. I dilute it to half strength with the PG solvent so it is 1mg finasteride per 1ml. I started off with using 1ml per day but got some side effects. I changed the dosage to 0.10ml per day and raised it every 14 days by .05ml up to my current daily dose of .5ml (.5mg) per day. I do not get any side effects anymore, gradually raising the dose I think allowed my body to adjust to it. I saw initial results after 2 months, then in the third month I seemed to lose all the progress I had made. I continued with the treatment as I had nothing to lose, and 2 months later I had re-gained my progress and have continued to recover more ground. My hairloss was at the front of my hairline, mainly temples, I would say I was at Norwood 2 heading to 3. My hairline is almost completely recovered at this point and I am beyond delighted with the results. I do not take minoxidil or any other drugs, just vitamins that support hair growth and I microneedle once a week. I highly recommend anyone suffering hairloss to try Essengen F, and if you get side effects, try starting at a microdose and graduating up, it worked for me and I was extremely sensitive to it at the start. Good luck to anyone trying it, I hope it works for you like it works for me!

It works Fast
I started to use this product in combination with Dualgen-5R and it really worked for me and I saw the results after approximately 4 months of using. I ordered from Canada with normal shipping and I received that sooner than expected time.
