• 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).


  • 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).

    3) 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.

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.

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.

Heres hoping that it will become more thicker and denser and definitely will use it for as long as you guys will keep producing this. Hope Essengen-F will be here to stay forever, truly a confidence boost product!

Good replacement for pills
I used to take finasteride pills. They did not necessarily help regrowth for me, but they did stop hair loss. I like how this product contains less finasteride, but still provides the same effect as the pills. My scalp is pretty sensitive, but still tolerates this product. I would recommend using this over using pills.

Unique Product exactly what I needed
So happy to have found this product with finasteride only in it as I switched to an oral minoxidil regimen. Seems to be working quite well and pretty good overall value in the product too. Recommend!

0.005% solution
I want to make a 0.005% solution of Essengen F (0.2%) and the solvent 60 ML, to start out with. How much do I need to add to the solvent of the Essengen F solution? Is the 1.6 ML correct as mentioned? Thanks in advance:)

Reply from Seller : The answer is in the product description.
