Domain Name Information
The domain records for this drugstore show that they haven’t been in business for very long. The domain was registered in 2019, and this increases the chances that this pharmacy won’t be legit.
There is some information in the records about who has registered the domain. This tells us that the owner is Pixineers Inc. who are doing business as Essential Clinic Company. They also give an address in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. These are the sort of details we would expect to find and suggest that the pharmacy is likely to be legit.
The pharmacy does provide some business information, and this does match up with information shown in the domain name database. This is another really good sign that should mean that the pharmacy is safe for customers to use.
Unreliable pharmacies normally try to avoid giving any contact information whatsoever, and even when they do, it’s often fake. Not finding this sort of deception should mean the pharmacy is more reliable.
The pharmacy also gives details and biographies of the main people working behind the scenes for this pharmacy. This is much more than we normally expect from a drugstore and should show that they are likely to be more reliable.
The pharmacy claims that they are correctly approved and have a regulatory seal from LegitScript on their site. When we check this, we can see it is valid and that they are considered certified.
This means that the store should be safe as they are operating within the rules they need to be for selling medications in Canada.
The pharmacy specializes in a small number of treatment options. These are:
- Hair loss
- Men’s health
All the medication that they sell is shipped from pharmacies in Canada. The medication mostly seems to be sold using a subscription model where you’re charged each month.
The consultation fees and medication prices are charged separately with a prescription costing $39 per year. Medication costs start at $10.87 per dose or $13.33 per month. These prices are in Canadian dollars. While the pharmacy sells medications to most of Canada, residents of the Yukon are out of luck.
Before you can get a prescription, you’ll need to fill out an online questionnaire. This includes your symptoms and medical history, this will then be evaluated by Canadian licensed doctors. There could be follow-up questions from the doctor, but if your treatment is approved, a prescription will be issued and sent to the dispensing pharmacy.
The pages on the store are secure, so your details should be safe when you enter them there. Acceptable payment methods include:

When we check there, we can see that they have got a good number of customer comments and most of them are positive. These appear to be genuine customers of the pharmacy and show that they are providing a safe service to customers.
While, of course, there are a few customers who have experienced issues when ordering, this is to be expected with a pharmacy that has had a lot of customers.
It is clear to us that this pharmacy is doing things correctly, so we give them 4 stars. They have regulation approval, offer customers a lot of transparency about who and where they are, and feedback about this service is good.
