COVID-19 Update: Patients Can Still Receive 82M, 82F, 82D + 82S

Our compounding partners are currently shipping orders of Formulas 82M®, 82F®, & 82D® at this time. If you have patients who you have written orders for in the past, or new patients in need of an effective regrowth serum, you can renew orders or set up new ones through Carie Boyd Pharmaceuticals. If you are interested in carrying Formula 82S® in your clinic, spa, salon, or practice,  you may contact Hair Science directly.


A voluntary recall has been initiated by MasterPharm Compounding Pharmacy, affecting a limited number of patients whose prescriptions of Formulas 82M & 82F were issued during the period 1/22/20 and 2/28/20, from the following (4) lots: (Lot Number | Beyond Use Date:  01-17-2020:45@4 | 7/7/2020, 01-31-2020:73@6 | 7/26/2020, 02-17-2020:86@5 | 8/10/2020, 02-21-2020:23@1 | 8/16/2020).
