What Is Minoxidil?

minoxidil chemical structure

Cas Number: 38304-91-5

Molecular Formula: C9H15N5O

Molecular Weight: 209.253 g/mol

HS Code: 2938909090 (2020.09.11 updated, used to be 2933599090)

Chemical name: 2,4-Diamino-6-piperidinopyrimidine 3-oxide or 6-Piperidin-1-ylpyrimidine-2,4-diamine 3-oxide.

Minoxidil is a white to off-white crystalline powder.

It is barely soluble in water but soluble in propylene glycol, methanol, and ethanol. 

Its solubility in water is 2.2mg/ml, while in propylene glycol is 75mg/ml.

What Is Minoxidil Used For?

Minoxidil was first used as a potent direct-acting peripheral vasodilator to lower blood pressure, but it showed a side effect of increased body hair.

Later minoxidil is widely studied and used for male baldness. 

Studies had shown that about 40% of men experience hair regrowth after 3–6 months.

It must be applied indefinitely for the continued support of existing hair follicles and the maintenance of any experienced hair regrowth.

It is also used with many other ingredients to achieve better hair-growing effects.

We see many of its topical formulations fortified with finasteride, dutasteride, azelaic acid, tretinin in many hair-growing products.

Studies show that 0.01% Tretinin is able to double its efficacy on growing hair back.

The most well-known brands in the market for hair loss are Kirkland and Rogaine. North America is the leading global market owing to the high adoption of hair-loss treatment products.

According to the American Hair Loss Association, over 80% of men experience hair loss by the age of 50.

Even further, over 21 million women suffer from hair loss problems and about 40% of them opt for active treatments.

The demand for minoxidil is expected to surge due to the aging global population.

According to the United Nations Economic & Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) in North & Central Asia, the population ratio aged 60 and above will increase to over 24% by 2050.

Minoxidil 2% vs 5%

There are two common specifications of its topical formulations in the market: 2% type and 5% type, either as topical solutions or aerosol foams or the topical liquids. 

You may wonder to youself: which brand is the best for receding hairline and which specification and form should you choose for better hair regrowth.

According to one study conducted by Duke Dermatopharmacology Study Center in 2002, it showed that In men with AGA (Androgenetic Alopecia), Its 5% topical was superior to 2% and placebo in increasing hair regrowth, and the magnitude of its effect was marked (45% more hair regrowth than 2% topical at week 48). Men who used its 5% topical also had an earlier response to treatment than those who used 2% topical. Psychosocial perceptions of hair loss in men with AGA were also improved. Its topical form (5% and 2%) was well tolerated by the men in this trial without evidence of systemic effects.

Its 2% topical solution was approved for the first time in 1991 to treat female hair loss by Upjohn, applied twice daily. In more recent years, its first 5% foam for women was approved in 2014, applied once daily. 5% foam no doubt costs less time and is more convenient to apply. There was a study showing that patients using 5% foam had a mean 32-hair/cm2 or 16% increase, not significantly different from the 14% increase documented in women on the 2% topical solution, but 2% is better than nothing right? Polls are showing that women prefer 5% foam to 2% topical solution.

By comparison, we conclude that topical 5% works better than 2% for hair growth and 5% solution was found to be more effective than 2% in maintaining existing hair and regrowing lost hair. 

In general, it has been found that the higher the concentration, the better the effect in terms of treating androgenetic alopecia. 

And now you have your answer, choose the brands with higher concentrations.

However, the higher concentration, the more increased risk of adverse side-effects. We can already see 10% even 15% formulations in the market. Please be cautious and consult your doctor before you make any decisions.

Partially influenced beard-star James Harden from Houston Rockets of NBA, to grow a thick beard is getting more and more popular.

But there are many successful cases of men applying it to their faces to get their thick beards.

Actually, you can grow your beard by using any of its topical formulations in the market such as Rogaine, Kirkland, Equate, Tugain, and Lipogaine, etc

What Is The HS Code For Minxodil Powder?

How To Dissolve Minxodil Powder For 1HNMR and HPLC?

When we do the testing of 1nmr spectra for any unverified molecules, we often use DMSO(dimethylsulfoxide) as solvent. But it is difficult for us to dissolve it in DMSO.

Our Testing Technican has come up with the idea that a little amount of hydrochloride will greatly increase its solubility in DMSO, and voila, we get the concentration we need to do our 1hnmr. You can find our 1hnmr spectrum with hydrochloride for your ref.

For the method of analysis by HPLC, you can just follow the testing procedure in USP monograph. Of course you can always improvise according to different testing conditions you have.

Anything unclear about the testing methods, welcome to contact us anytime. We also shoot video for it, please check as below.

    So many people are oblivious to the fact that fast hair growth shampoos (obviously with no sulfates, no parabens, no DEA) are a thing. Persons can now attain longer hair and attain more possibilities. Surely worth looking up.
    Whether you’re thinking about alopecia, damaged hair, preventing scalp disorders, hair growth, hair health in general, almost the same principles actualize.
    As a rule of thumb, you have to stay away from hair products and treatments that use chemicals such as parabens, DEA or sulfates.
    What is beneficial for your hair is good for your skin all the same.
    It goes without saying the content above is so accurate for so many reasons. It steers away from the common mistakes and pitfalls too many fall into: buying bad alternatives. Keep it up!

      Minoxidil powder is pretty much currently the main-stream ingredient for hair-loss and growing a beard.
      Clascoterone is also under research for growing hair back, but 5% minoxidil solutions or foams are proved to be very safe.

  3. Seymour

    Most people I talk to are not aware that fast hair growth amino scalp therapy shampoos (of course without any sulfates, parabens or DEA) are even a thing. Hair styling enthusiasts are now able to possess longer hair and enjoy more possibilities. Definitely worth investigating.

    When you’re talking about hair loss, damaged hair, preventing skin disorders, hair growth, hair health normally, almost the same principles apply.

    As a rule of thumb, you want to stay away from hair treatments and products that include chemicals like parabens, DEA and sulfates.
