What can you do to help to maintain healthy hair growth?

Caffeine helps!

With an active ingredient combination, Alpecin has succeeded in stopping the negative effect of testosterone, thereby effectively helping to maintain healthy hair growth.

The lack of energy caused by testosterone is evened out by caffeine. To ensure that the caffeine can go where it is needed, local application is required. Based on the special galenic formula in the Alpecin products, the active ingredients travel directly all the way to the hair shaft where they can unleash their effect.

The active ingredient protects the hair roots against the testosterone attack. This helps to maintain healthy hair growth which means that hair growth is possible well into old age.

Always a step ahead – through research and development

Dr. Wolff Research: Traditionally innovative

Every day, the team of Dr. Wolff Research lives up to its commitment to develop innovations and improve products. This has always been the objective. When Dr. August Wolff established his pharmaceutical company in 1905, it was his guiding principle to not stand still but instead to keep optimizing products step by step. This principle still applies today …

The connection of care and effectiveness

Dr. August Wolff had a revolutionary idea. The chemist and pharmacist wanted his products to be more than hair styling aids and to make an important contribution to keeping both scalp and hair healthy. With this objective, Dr. August Wolff performed intensive research and successfully developed hair care products.

The birth of Alpecin – and the start of a small revolution

His first Alpecin revolutionized hair care in 1930. For the first time, people could groom their hair while simultaneously doing something against dandruff and t help maintain healthy hair growth. At the time, the company already collaborated closely with leading scientists. We are continuing this tradition: Today, Dr. Wolff Research still closely collaborates with renowned partners in science and has established a research network with German university clinics.



Studies conducted by various institutes and universities in Germany and Italy confirm the efficacy of the Alpecin Caffeine Complex for androgenetic alopecia in men. The investigations explain the penetration of caffeine and highlight its effects on the hair roots.
