Product Name: DualGen-15 NO PG
(Prescription only, not available in the US)
(Please note that there are two versions of dualgen-15, one is
DualGen-15 NO PG, the other is DualGen-15 With PG)
DualGen-15 NO PG
has the maximum strength of FDA approved hair growth stimulator (15%
minoxidil), DHT blocker (5% azelaic acid), minoxidil enhancer
(0.025% retinol) and hair follicle stimulator (0.001% caffeine).
Propylene glycol (PG or PPG), a major component used in any other
minoxidil hair growth product (such Kirkland minoxidil, DS
laboratory) as a delivery vehicle, is not used in this product to
avoid any scalp irritation such as scalp itchiness and/or
inflammation. Glycerin is used as the delivery vehicle. This product
is called Dualgen-15 NO PG to be differentiated from the other
product called DualGen-15 With PG that has same effective
ingredients but compounded using propylene glycol as the delivery
Quality can be
100% assured as it produced by strictly following cGMP guidelines.
A. Major ingredients:
Minoxidil 15% (9 grams of minoxidil in each bottle; i.e., 150 mg/mL)
Azelaic acid 5% (3 grams of Azelaic acid in each bottle; i.e., 50
Retinol 0.025% (0.25 mg/mL)
Caffeine 0.001% (0.01 mg/mL)
B. How to use?
Perform a “use test” to ensure you are not allergic to the product
by applying a few drops of DualGen-15 NO PG to the triangular cavity
of the elbow joint. Do not use this product if redness or
inflammation of the spot occurs.
Using the included dropper, apply up to 1 ml of
DualGen-15 NO PG to
your scalp in the hair loss area in the evening. Once a day should
be sufficient for most people. It can be used in conjunction with 5%
minoxidil solution such as our EssenGen-5 or DualGen-5，in which case
use 5% minoxidil in the morning and DualGen-15 NO PG in the evening;
using each product once daily.
DualGen-15 NO PG in the evening is recommended because it
takes slightly longer time to dry than a 5% minoxidil solution (such
as DualGen-5 or EsseGen-5) because of the high concentration of
minoxidil and the additional effective ingredients.
If you do want to use this product twice daily, please do it only
after it is proved that once a day is not effective enough and you
have no side effects to use it twice a day
Use no more than 1 ml each time. You only need to use enough to
cover your balding/thinning area with a thin film of the solution.
No massage is needed. You can use your finger tip or the tip of the
dropper (included) to spread the solution. Try your best to apply
the solution directly to your scalp by parting your hair. Otherwise
you end up with wasting the product on your hair and it takes long
time to dry.
C. Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q. Is DualGen-15 NO PG FDA approved?
A. No. Among hundreds of products available on the market for hair
loss treatment, FDA has only approved two products. One is Rogaine
(5% minoxidil), the other is Propecia (1 mg finasteride pill). Any
other product is not FDA approved. Some products make statement that
sounds like they are FDA approved. In most cases, what it means is
that the products contain the FDA approved ingredient--minoxidil.
The products themselves are not FDA approved.
Q. If a hair regrowth product is made of natural ingredients,
does it mean that it is safer than a product made of synthetic
A. No. As a matter of fact, the opposite may be even true.
First of all, there is no hair growth product that is made of all
natural ingredients. Secondly, natural ingredients are exposed toxic
chemicals during extraction such as hexane, ethylacetate, etc.
Thirdly, quality control testing of natural ingredients to detect
any toxic impurities is very challenging. Most raw material suppliers
never even try to test them. Fourthly, there is very limited or no
safety study for the natural ingredients used in some so-called
natural hair growth products. Lastly, there are numerous natural
lethal stuff such as fungus, moulds, or even plants, or flowers.
Q. Which product should I choose between
DualGen-15 NO PG or DualGen-15 With PG?
A. Please be advised that both products are exclusively for men, not
for women. So if you are a woman, you should not use either of them.
These two products have the same effective ingredients (15%
minoxidil, 5% azelaic acid, 0.025% retinol, and 0.001% caffeine) and
are equally effective. The only difference is that
DualGen-15 NO PG
uses glycerin, whereas DualGen-15 With PG uses propylene glycol as
the delivery vehicle. The use of glycerin in DualGen-15 NO PG
eliminates any scalp irritation caused by propylene glycol that is
seen in ~10% users. It also slows down slightly the drying time. So
if you know you are allergic to propylene glycol, it is recommended
to use DualGen-15 NO PG. Otherwise, you can consider DualGen-15 With
Q. How long does it take to dry DualGen-15 NO PG or
DualGen-15 With PG?
A. DualGen-15 takes slightly longer time than regular 5% minoxidil
(such as Rogaine liquid or Kirkland 5% minoxidil) to dry due to the
fact that it has larger amount of minoxidil and additional effective
ingredients. If properly applied, most of the product should be
absorbed within one hour. You can wash you hair 2 hours after the
application. There are several ways to help absorb the solution
faster: A) try to apply the solution directly to your scalp and
avoid your hair by parting your hair into one or more rows to
maximize the scalp exposure. The solution applied to the hair will
never be absorbed by your scalp, resulting in wasting product and
greasy hair; B) carefully spread the solution evenly on your scalp
using your finger tips.
Q. Is a glycerin based formula less effective than a propylene
glycol based formula with the same minoxidil concentration?
A. No. Both glycerin and propylene glycol are pharmacologically
inactive ingredients in the minoxidil products. They are used in
minoxidil solutions as solvent so minoxidil can be in solution form.
In addition, their slow rate of evaporation allows the effective
ingredients minoxidil to form a thin film on the scalp for continued
absorption after the alcohol necessary to the base solution has
