For an even more intensive treatment or prevention, it makes sense to use both products. Especially for women who do not wash their hair every day, the daily application of the Phyto-Caffeine Tonic is by all means recommended.

All formulas include highly active caffeine, which penetrates into the hair follicles and is therefore able to provide them with sufficient growth energy. Depending on their intensity and application, the different products contain various additional active ingredients:

Apart from caffeine, the Phyto-Caffeine Tonic contains the hair vitamin niacin and zinc salts, which prevent the increasing impact of premature exhaustion on the hair roots. The products also contain various additional active ingredients e.g. soy and white tea. These are known as phytoflavones, active botanical ingredients like the phytoestrogen genistein from the soy plant that have a positive effect in woman from the age of 40.

The phytoflavones from white tea (particularly gently extracted active ingredients from the tea plant) are known for enhancing the resistance of the scalp and the hair follicle. They act as a protective agent from free radicals and improve regeneration.

Since you ingest coffee orally, it first passes through the digestive system and is absorbed by the body only later on. Subsequently, it is distributed throughout the body, and only a tiny quantity reaches the scalp and the hair roots. As a result, a local and direct administration of caffeine is both meaningful and necessary. Even consumption of 50 cups of coffee would not supply enough caffeine to the hair roots.

Caffeine from coffee is unable to penetrate the scalp or the hair follicle. This requires a special carrier base (galenics) that transports the active ingredients to the target location where they develop their effect. Our scientists have long been performing research in this area. Now they have succeeded in developing a method for transporting caffeine all the way into the hair follicles.

You should begin around the age of 40. But even in your younger years, Plantur 39 can protect the hair roots, especially when you are under a lot of stress, e.g. during reduction diets or other stressful situations.

The Plantur 39 series consists of cosmetic products that are subject to the European cosmetics directive. According to this directive, cosmetics must be free of side effects, which also applies to the Plantur 39 products, of course.

Generally, Plantur 39 can also be used at a younger age. Plantur 39 with its phyto-caffeine complex increases energy supply to the hair roots and can also be used for stress and other strain to the hair roots.

In rare cases, stronger hair loss can occur temporarily. This process is called "shedding." Based on an intensive scalp massage, hairs that are in their resting phase anyway can be massaged out of the follicles at an increased rate. However, after three to four months, this increased hair loss is reduced and the hair growth cycles can regenerate.

First of all, alcohol is not unhealthy and has no negative effect on the hair. Due to alcohol, Plantur 39 is quickly absorbed and transports the active ingredients even through fatty skin layers. This is important, if Plantur 39 is to be used on a daily basis without washing the hair every day. Water alone cannot do this, it would drip off.
