This all seems rather fishy to me. No offence ironman, but if an anonymous person would come in to a forum and write what you just wrote, there is no way I would believe him. I would see this as an easy, and free, way of marketing something that might just be homoeopathic drugs (=no effect).
This mysterious product which this mysterious man has invented, has it gone through any clinical trials? Can the reports be found in pubmed? I don't know how the rules are in Canada, but surely he can not just create such a product without rigorous and supervised clinical trials. He can't just create a product, test it on himself and then use it on people. That is very much unethical, dangerous and should be illegal. To actually see how the drug affects cells, hair etc one would need extensive trials and using laboratory equipment a normal person could not afford (unless he is very wealthy).
How did he create the product? In his garage or maybe he is a professor at a university (which I doubt. Such a break-through in the academic world would echo from more sources than an anonymous user at this forum). As I said earlier, anyone with an insight in biology and chemistry understands that things world leading scientists (often with a team of research assistants) have been struggling for years in top modern research facilities is nothing John Doe can imitate in his kitchen.
Don't get me wrong, I am not trying to be rude. I do not know ironman and he does not know me, so there is not any reason to take it personally. The thing is that hair growth is a sensitive area and many (especially depressed persons) would do almost everything to get rid of the hair on the upper lip or maybe the hairy back. It's rather a rule than an exception that people will take advantage of this and come with false hopes and lies.
I would guess the next move would be that ironman posts a link to an unknown company who has taken on the product and are now selling it on the web. It will probably be classified as "alternative medicine".
I might be wrong, or I might be right. Time will tell...
