    It is cheapest.  If you going to make something that doesn’t work, it naturally follows that you use the cheapest ingredients, hence the most profit, and why it was made to begin with. 

    Only thing proven to grow hair: Minoxidil

    Follow the $$$

    I can only concur with @Graillotion.
    There’s a few other drugs (fully synthetic and usually not approved in topical preparations, let alone cosmetics) which promote hair growth… but that’s just as a side note.

    Hair growth is a dangerous claim to ignore. A quick search will find NUMEROUS FDA Enforcement Letters against this claim. Great way to get a visit. https://www.fda.gov/inspections-compliance-enforcement-and-criminal-investigations/warning-letters/soleo-567046-12132018
