There are many products marketed as “natural” or “home-made” remedies implying that anything scientifically formulated is bad. But what you need to understand is that literally everything on earth is a combination of molecules from the periodic table. Everything when you look closely enough under powerful magnification are all “natural”.
Let’s take minoxidil for instance. This is the only ingredient considered an API (active pharmaceutical ingredient) in our product line. Minoxidil is the most widely used and tested hair growth ingredient in existence. Millions of men and women have used minoxidil.
Unfortunately, minoxidil doesn’t help with what’s causing the restriction of blood flow that is actually at the cause of hair loss, but it does have synergistic benefits with the other non-api ingredients in the ARB Topical Solution formula.
Large scale clinical studies have shown that 5% minoxidil solution has only 1.2ng/mL of minoxidil in the serum (aka how much goes into your bloodstream). Minoxidil has to have a serum concentration greater than 20 ng/mL to have any systemic effect (side effects outside of the topically applied area). A ng (nanogram) is one-billionth of a gram.
Therefore, there is more than a 16x times safety margin for the ARB Topical Solution–5, and a 5x times safety margin for the ARB Topical Solution–15 before it has any systemic side effects whatsoever.
Nonetheless, we are legally not allowed to offer any medical advice and always recommend you speak to your doctor or health care professional.
*As noted on the label, women who are pregnant or nursing are not advised to use anything containing minoxidil. The shampoo and brush and roller have no counter indications for pregnant or nursing however.
