What is Minoxidil Sulfate?
Cas number: 83701-22-8
Molecular formula: C9H15N5O4S
Molecular weight: 289.31
It is the sulfate salt of the Minoxidil base, a white to off-white crystalline powder with 98% purity.
Many people use it to treat male-pattern hair loss.
Actually, minoxidil derivatives are the most popular cosmetics ingredients used for growing hair.
Though other people use finasteride and dutasteride for growing men’s hair too, the minoxidil series remain the main-stream solution for the hair loss issue.
Compared to the minoxidil free base, its sulfate salt is more soluble in water and easier to be absorbed by your body when applied onto your skin.
In the market, we can see many products containing it for growing hair: creams, lotions. shampoos, soaps, you name it.
Minoxidil Sulfate vs Minoxidil
Minoxidil Sulfate is the sulfate salt of Minoxidil.
It is also the active metabolite that stimulates hair follicles to grow new hair.
Studies are showing that sulfation of minoxidil is a critical step for hair-growth effects of minoxidil and that it is the sulfated metabolite that directly stimulates hair follicles to grow back new hairs.
Minoxidil sulfate can either stop hair loss or trigger mild to moderate hair regrowth.
Someone may ask: which should I choose, the free base or its sulfate salt?
Will the sulfate salt work better than Minoxidil?
The answer is YES.
Yes, minoxidil sulfate works better than Minoxidil, But, there is always a BUT.
#1. More effective
Studies in vitro of Minoxidil Sulphate showed that Minoxidil sulfate was 14 times more effective than Minoxidil.
There were also studies showing that females unresponsive to a 6-month 5% MX solution showed increases in hair growth in 97.7% using a 10% MXS solution once daily during a mean treatment period of 4.09 months.
But topical Minoxidil solutions remain the first-line topical agent for the treatment of male and female Androgenetic alopecia(baldness) unless the patients prove to be unresponsive to Minoxidil.
#2. Better water solubility
Minoxidil Sulfate is more soluble in water than Minoxidil, but it is less stable in an aqueous solution compared with Minoxidil.
That is to say, Minoxidil is more stable than Minoxidil Sulphate, thus Minoxidil products have a longer shelf life.
On the other hand, Minoxidil Sulphate has to be used at higher concentrations (10–15%) and packaged in small volumes.
This is because of Minoxidil Sulphate’s high degradation in solutions.
#3. A little bit more expensive
Last but not least, Minoxidil sulfate costs more than Minoxidil on cost and is less stable!
The price of minoxidil sulfate is 20% higher than that of minoxidil.
One main reason is the production scale.
Minoxidil consumption quantity is way bigger than sulfate salt.
What is Minoxidil Sulfate HS Code?
It is an organic salt with a pyrimidine ring. It belongs to the same category as Minoxidil free base.
In China Customs, it is categorized into one chemical group called Other compounds containing pyrimidine rings in the structure (including other compounds containing piperazine rings in the structure), with HS Code as 2933599090.
