Caffeine can be used as an ingredient in products combating cellulite due to its ability to prevent excess fat accumulation/storage in cells. In fact, as an alkaloid molecule, it aids in fat breakdown through lipolysis by inhibiting phosphodiesterase activity. Considering its antioxidant role, it helps protect cells against UV rays and damage. Moreover, cosmetic products containing caffeine can enhance microcirculation on the skin and support hair growth by inhibiting 5-alpha reductase enzymatic activity.
