Hey guys,
I know El dut has had experience of this but over the last 3/4 years that I have used RU and other topicals (currently using neogenic and some oils) it seems as though my scalp has become more porous and absorption is much easier.

For those that have had to reduce concentration of topicals to counterbalance this and reduce systemic absorption, have you lost any ground? I started RU at 5% solution years ago, went down to 3% a year ago and thinking about dropping down to a 1.5% solution soon because for a few days I have noticed some systemic sides such as nipple sensitivity. I am worried that if I keep dropping the concentration I may get to a stage where the solution is no longer strong enough to block AR's in the scalp. This is all anecdotal of course but would appreciate your thoughts. Cheers

yes absolutely, not because of the RU itself but alcohol in the vehicle, and minox, neogenic etc.. this disrupts the top skin layer and makes it lot more porous no question

its a very good thing actually since we need less active component to achieve the same results

makes sure you have clean hands and clean scalp

there is even a study that shows that drinking alcohol will lower the skin barrier as well

I also remember a study on using RU in liposomes, showing a 4 times better absorption rate over alcohol in a normal non-porous scalp

this goes to show how much can blocked by the skin.
