FOR years they were on the fringe of science. But now a Scottish
father and son's obsession with the health-giving properties of green
coffee beans is set to help women suffering the misery of hair loss -
and earn them a multi-million-pound fortune.
Scientists Bill and Iain Forbes have been carrying out experiments
on raw coffee beans after discovering they had properties which could
stop women's hair from thinning, a problem which affects 50% of women
by the time they are 50.
after signing a "six-figure" contract with the major high street
chemist Boots, the duo's product is expected to become a major seller
when it hits the shelves next month.
Last week, Boots unveiled its Expert Hair Loss Treatment Spray for
Women, which is said to improve the thickness of each individual hair
and has been shown in trials to significantly increase hair growth.
