RU58841 is a non-steroidal experimental anti-androgen, which is intended for use as a topical treatment for acne and androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness).
To briefly describe how it works, it is basically a turn-key all in one hair loss compound that blocks all DHT on the scalp, and can significantly improve the life of anybody experiencing hair loss, and I’m shocked it isn’t more heavily researched.
I will be using RU for the rest of my life unless something better gets invented.
For the carrier (what the RU58841 raw powder is mixed in), I prefer PG (propylene glycol) + Ethanol.
I find it rare for someone’s scalp to be irritated by the PG/Ethanol to the point of needing K&B instead as the carrier. They both work fine; some people just seem to have skin irritation to particular carriers as opposed to others.
If Your Scalp Gets Irritated By Propylene Glycol
If you are one of those who’s scalp is irritated by the Propylene Glycol in the traditional standard RU58841 carrier blend, this will be a quick instructional guide for you specifically detailing how to mix a RU58841 solution in K&B Solution.
K&B solution is 60% Ethanol, 35% Deionized Water, and 5% K&B Emulsifiers.
These are more forgiving on sensitive scalps.
If You Have A Very Hard Time Finding Ethanol
Another reason K&B solution might be necessary for you to use is if you want to reconstitute your own RU58841 solutions but can’t find Ethanol by itself (it’s not easy to find).
All that is required with the K&B solution is to pour your desired amount of RU58841 powder into the premixed K&B solution, then shake or stir lightly until it is thoroughly dissolved and mixed evenly.
If you want to mix the standard concentration, use 2.5 grams of raw RU58841 powder in a 50ml K&B solution to achieve a 5% RU58841 solution of 50mg/ml.
What You Will Need To Mix Your Own RU58841 Solutions With K&B Solution
- RU58841 Raw Powder
- K&B solution 50ML
- A Very Accurate Digital Scale
- Glass Stirring Rod
- 1x 50ml Measuring Beaker
- A Funnel
Turn on your scale and make sure it’s measuring in grams as its’ unit of measurement.
Once you see that it’s turned on and at 0 grams, put an empty beaker on the scale.
After the measurement has stabilized, turn the scale back to 0 with the beaker still on it by pressing the “Tare” button.
Once you press this, it will reset the scale to 0 even with the beaker on it. The purpose of this is so we can determine what 2.5 grams of RU5881 powder is without the beaker screwing up our measurement.
Add 2.5 grams of powder to the empty beaker on the scale until you see the scale reading 2.5 grams.
Once you’ve done that, you can turn off the scale and put it away.
Next, pour the 50ml of K&B solution into the beaker with the 2.5 grams of RU58841 raw powder.
You should now have a cloudy solution of RU58841.
All you need to do now is get your glass stirring rod, and stir the solution until it is crystal clear and you can’t see any fragments of unmixed RU58841 powder in it.
Once it’s crystal clear your solution is ready to go, and you can get your funnel and 50ml+ K&B container and pour the solution through the funnel back into the empty bottle you have to store your solution in.
There you have it, now you have a 50ml 5% RU58841 K&B solution dosed at 50mg/ml.
Store it in the fridge and out of the light ideally to maximize the shelf life and prevent any degradation to the solution.
Room temperature is the least ideal scenario, but if you don’t have a fridge or freezer you can store it in, then at least make sure it’s in a cool, dry place, out of direct light when you’re storing it at room temperature.
