PURPOSE OF INGREDIENT
- To treat and prevent male pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia)
BIOCHEMICAL EFFECT OF THE INGREDIENT
- Androgen receptor inhibitors (such as spironolactone and Potassium canrenoate) have anti-androgen activity by binding to the androgen receptor and thus preventing it to interact with dihydrotestosterone (DHT) (reference).
- Potassium canrenoate has a half-life of 10 to 35 hours, which is much longer than the half-life of spironolactone (85 minutes). Thus, potassium canrenoate works longer in the skin before inactivated.
APPLICATION OF HAIR PRODUCT
- Apply hair lotion once a day to the scalp.
- Remove the lid of the cylindrical container. At the top of the container you will see a small hole a few mm in diameter.
- Screw clock-wise on the container at the bottom until the gel comes out at the top.
- If you turn the container 4 times (“4 clicks”), you’ll get an total amount equal to 1 g. This is the expected daily amount you should apply to the scalp. Feel free to apply more if needed to cover the whole scalp area.
- The gel is rubbed into the scalp in the areas where you want to preserve and regrow your hair.
Please expect 2-4 weeks of production time, including delivery. The product is delivery after you have paid the pharmacy. The pharmacy will contact you by e-mail.
Always see a doctor prior to commencing your treatment to ensure correct diagnosis of androgenetic hair loss (male pattern hair loss).
*COST OF INGREDIENT
The cost of the prescription is paid when you make your purchase via this webshop. Hence when making your purchase via the webshop you only pay for the prescription (not the product itself).
For the product itself, please expect an additional cost to the pharmacy. The pharmacy will bill you when they have compounded your hair loss product (this takes some few weeks). The pharmacy will send you the bill by e-mail after some few weeks when the product is ready for shipment.
if you add more ingredients to the basket, the cost of each ingredient should be added to the price of the compounded product. Shipping cost should only be added once):
