ACPHARM Hair Science Solution

ACPHARM Hair Science Solution stimulates hair growth in androgenetic alopecia3. It contains a vasodilator that acts mainly on the hair cycle but may also increase hair diameter4. The Solution prolongs the active hair growth phase (anagen) and also shortens the hair follicle resting phase (telogen) causing premature entry into the active hair growth phase (anagen)1,2.

The ACPHARM Hair Science Solution is an advanced formulation containing multiple active ingredients that act synergistically by stimulating suboptimal follicles to produce denser hair growth than if they were used alone.1,2

It also contains a corticosteroid that helps to decrease the inflammation and itching commonly associated with many hair loss formulations.5,6 The ACPHARM Hair Science Solution comes in a convenient spray bottle for ease of application. 8 sprays should be applied to affected areas of a dry scalp at night. Store in a refrigerator.

Why is our Hair Science Solution special?

Ethosomes are novel carriers composed of phospholipid, ethanol and water7,10. They act as a permeation enhancer to deliver substances to the skin more efficiently in terms of quantity and depth7. Conventional topical minoxidil formulations have very poor skin permeation and retention properties7. A study on mice comparing a 0.5% minoxidil solution with and without ethosomes has shown that the accumulation of minoxidil was 5 times higher in the ethosome formulation7.

Our Minoxidil is encapsulated in ethosomes to preserve the molecule and increase skin permeation and retention properties. This targeted application helps achieve better clinical efficacy of minoxidil7. The ethosomes also help to increase the stability of the formulation and decrease some of the irritation that can be caused by minoxidil3,7.
