These two compounds are present in Kera XL hair growth serum.
Biochanin-A inhibits both type 1 and type 2 5-alpha reductase enzymes, which are responsible for conversion of testosterone to DHT.
Acetyl tetrapeptide-3 stimulates dermal papilla extracellular matrix proteins, and thus has a direct effect on hair follicle size and anchoring. It has been proven to be much more effective than minoxidil.

These sites have much more info on these two compounds -

Wonder if Susan could make a topical with those compounds ?not a injectable and could it benefit us even though it's not being injected ?

Kera XL hair growth serum(contains these two compounds) is applied to the scalp, at the affected region, just like minoxidil, except it only has to be used once a day, and according to these studies, It's even more effective than minoxidil as it tackles the root of the hair loss problem - 5-alpha reductase enzymes , and I don't think It has side effects comparable to those caused by Finasteride. I use it myself everyday, and I haven't had any problems.
