In France, Estée Lauder has introduced Re-Nutriv Serum Revitalisant Comfort Extreme, a barrier-repairing product. Formulated for dry and delicate skin, the product helps skin rebuild its vital protective layer with the company’s exclusive “barrier repair” technology. The product blends caffeine with rare Chinese herbs and nourishing lipids reportedly to help revitalize the skin’s appearance.
Caffeine has also found its way into shampoos designed to prevent hair loss. Mibelle, under the Bircal brand, has introduced Koffein Tonikum Caffeine Anti-Hairloss Tonic in Switzerland. The product claims to prevent hair loss with its caffeine formula, combining active substances to support the initial growth of new hair. According to the manufacturer, regular use has proved to increase hair density.
In Germany, Dr. Wolff-Forschung has launched a new product in hair care as well. Under the Alpecin brand the company has introduced Doppel Effekt, a double-effect shampoo to combat both dandruff and hair loss. It contains a caffeine complex and is said to be the first shampoo in the world to fight both dandruff and hair loss at the same time. It is expected that more hair products will continue to infuse caffeine in new ways.
