Dr. Bauman: Irritation from propylene glycol in OTC Minoxidil (Video)

(Video Transcript)

Let’s talk for a minute about the typical over-the-counter versions of Minoxidil.

A lot of Minoxidil that you see over-the-counter (OTC), and actually, the original FDA approval was Minoxidil plus propylene glycol.

The problem is that propylene glycol is a very, very common irritant. And it’s probably the reason why so many folks get irritation from using over-the-counter Minoxidil products.

If you eliminate the propylene glycol, and you replace it with something kinder and gentler to the skin, you are going to have a much more scalp-friendly treatment, and a lot less chance of irritation.

Here at Strut, we saw the issues that the propylene glycol in over-the-counter Minoxidil formulations can have when it comes to scalp irritation and people wanting to stop using this effective treatment because of that.

For that reason, we developed our topical Minoxidil formulations without the propylene glycol, to ideally make our formulations more gentle to the scalp.

Also, as an added benefit, our topical Minoxidil formulations also include additional prescription-only active ingredients to provide you with hair loss treatment help beyond what you can achieve from over-the-counter products alone.
