Using minoxidil for hair growth

Q: Is minoxidil halal or haraam? Minoxidil or rogaine is used for hair regrowth but I am using it to help me grow my beard. The ingredients include alcohol, propylene glycol, purified water, etc. Is it permissible to use it since it includes alcohol?

A: Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
