Caffeine is an alkaloid belonging to the xanthine chemical group and has long been used in cosmetics
for lipolytic activity by increasing the cAMP, activating the lipase responsible for the hydrolysis
of triglycerides in the adipocytes.

effect on skin tumors after UV exposure in animal models.
Caffeine has also been described to boost hair growth and increase hair fiber diameter.
