Kirkland Minoxidil Ingredients. There is just one ‘active’ ingredient in Kirkland Minoxidil – Minoxidil! The other ingredients are designed to aid your body’s absorption of the Minoxidil, increasing the efficacy of the drug on your follicles.
Kirkland Minoxidil Ingredients
There is just one active chemical compound ingredient in Kirkland Minoxidil – as with most other Minoxidil brands, such as Rogaine – and that substance is Minoxidil. The clue is in the name! The other ingredients are there to encourage the absorption of the active Minoxidil in to your scalp.
As you can see below, Kirkland Minoxidil Topical Solution contains far fewer ingredients, but does contain ‘Propylene Glycol’, the ingredient occasionally associated with initial irritation when first using Minoxidil. The foam product was developed to combat these rare side effects.

Is Kirkland Minoxidil Effective?
It certainly is! Used as directed, Minoxidil will stop hair loss, almost immediately, and it will rejuvenate old hair follicles, pushing them in to what is called the ‘anogen’ phase of hair growth. Most men can expect to see very favourable results after 12-16 weeks of application.
Are there Side Effects?
Occasionally, yes. Some men have reported mild irritation on their skin, within the first week or two of application. This irritation is due to the ingredient, ‘Propylene Glycol’, and generally subsides after the first two weeks. If irritation continues, it may be worth considering the Minoxidil Foam products, as it does not contain Propylene Glycol.
Approved and Proven
Minoxidil has been approved both the American FDA and the MHRA, here in the UK. Who are those people?! You’ve probably heard of the FDA (the “Food and Drug Administration”) in the United States. The MHRA is the United Kingdom Government’s equivalent, the “Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency”.
