These are two companies which really seem to be a lot of hype. Long on promises, but short on evidence. In fact, VERY long on promises, because neither of them has yet even proved their CONCEPT, much less put anything on the market.
It’s one thing for a company to put up a website, get a bunch of “experts” together and have someone draw pretty, multi-colored diagrams of what they THINK will happen when you slather their chemical of as-yet-unknown composition on your head. It’s another thing to sit around and wait 8-10 years for them to actually prove it grows substantial amounts of hair that will cosmetically improve your appearance better than Finasteride or Rogaine… and get it approved by the FDA.
Please, these companies are just trading on everyone’s hopes, dreams, and exhaustion today.
If I ask anyone here, what is the EXACT CHEMICAL COMPOSITION of Histogen or Follica’s supposed compounds… what will you say??? What will THEY say???
That the chemical compositions are still “up in the air”, “undecided”, “in development”???
WHERE ARE THE PATENTS??? Can anyone point to a patent that shows exactly what “Histogen” or “Follica” is composed of… I mean molecular structure, chemical formula, etc.?
No? I didn’t think so.
They shouldn’t have to worry about anyone copying their stuff and selling it, if the compositions are patentable.
I’m guessing maybe they don’t have patented drug formulas because they haven’t even developed them yet?
If so, aren’t a lot of people here just living on the slimmest hype?
And I am NOT talking about a patent for a concept that “might be used later on”… I’m talking about patented chemical formulas which they plan on using in their products NOW… or whenever the h#ll they plan on selling it, which might be 10 years from now… if everything goes perfectly well.
(By the way, I won’t even mention Acell, which is the biggest farce to come down the pike since that doctor from Mexico…)
