• 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)

    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), DMI (dimethyl isosorbite), Polysorbate 20



  • 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.


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

    A. Please be advised that you need only a very thin film to cover the hair loss area.  0.5ml should be sufficient for most people.  When applied properly, 0.5 ml should be sufficient to cover the hair loss area of a person with advanced hair loss  (such as Hamilton-Norwood scale stage IV - V).

    In addition, you don't have to cover all the hair loss area in one application, because finasteride will dissipate in the scalp. You can also alternate the area where the solution is applied each time.   


    How long will I see results?

    A: It usually takes 3 to 4 months to see results. In another word, 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 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. Do not 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 having less 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.

Great Alternative to Oral Piils
I received a free sample of this product which I used to replace my oral finasteride pills and so far it works great--I'm actually seeing more improvement than I did when using the pills. Would definitely recommend.

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.

Works perfectly for me
I have used this product for 4 months since I switched from Propecia to this product. Results are very well maintained. Nothing was lost except for the side effects from the oral fin.

New Product
I tried taking Propecia tablets for hairloss which worked amazingly well. My hair grew back like I was 20 years old again. However, the side effects were horrible, heart racing, rashes and lack of sexual drive. I stopped taking the tablets for obvious reasons. I had been waiting for a topical solution the same as Propecia and finally Essegen-F was released. It is very early days for trying this but fingers crossed it works as well as Propecia but without the side effects. So far no side effects have happened. It is great to use and dries really quickly.

Easy to use
Very easy to use and apply! Has anyone been using this for longer than a few weeks? I am wondering how effective this is long term compared to propecia?
