• 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.


    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).

    If you have a large hair loss area and 0.5ml is indeed insufficient to cover it, you can use our PG Solvent or PG Free Solvent to dilute this product to lower the concentration

    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 (you can use the included dropper to measure the volume) with one unit of PG solvent (60ml),  and you get 68.5 ml of 0.025% topical finasteride (0.25 mg per ml).


    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. 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 PG solvent we offer.

Good thing is only topical.
I have been using this product for over 5 months on my receding hairline. Unfortunately, I have not seen any improvement whatsoever. I was really hoping this would be the product that would at least stop my hair from receding. I guess I will try another product. I cannot recommend this product.

hair loss reduced, and got thickened
Essengen-F has been fantastic for giving me the finasteride that my hair needs, without needing to take the oral tablet which gives me many hormone-related side effects. With the topical solution, I don't have to worry about any side-effects at all, but still, get to preserve my hair. It's fantastic and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone who can't / doesn't want to use the oral version of Finasteride. It also happens to dry extremely fast which is also a massive bonus. Not much is needed at all to maintain hair,

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.

I cannot recommend it enough!
I began using Essengen F after a very bad phase of hairloss. 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!

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.

Free sample, good so far
I'm already a few months on minoxidil, but not enough results, so I searched for topical finasteride and found this site and ordered a free sample. It came quickly to the Netherlands, within a week. I only use it a couple of days, so it's to early to have some results, but I like the topical, and it's easy to apply. I have no side effects so far. I had some side effects at the start from minoxidil, so I'm happy I don't have it with this product. I give it another month, and if I don't have any side effects, I will definitely order a next bottle. It's a fast delivery.

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.
