Arcon Southern Africa has now been on the market for 30 years. We are one of the most effective anti-hair loss products on the market today.

Arcon-Tisane Hair Vitamin Capsules are nutritional supplements with fenugreek seed concentrate as well as essential hair-active vitamins from the B group.

The composition of valuable vitamins and fenugreek seed extract has been selected so that the body is supplied with important nutrients and building substances. Since the body cannot produce these vitamins itself, these must be externally supplied through ingestion of our daily nourishment. But a deficiency often ensues; many factors impede sufficient intake of essential vitamins, be it insufficient nourishment, stress or otherwise also negative environmental influence.

This product has been on the market in unchanged form since 1987. One capsule should be taken daily over the course of at least 4 months for an effective hair treatment. Arcon-Tisane® Hair Vitamin Capsules are devoid of preservatives and artificial dyes. 

Ingredients: Fenugreek concentrate 4:1, micron. (31%) (Fenugreek concentrate with maltodextrine); Soybean Oil; Gelatin (bovine); wetting agent: Glycerin; Soybean Oil hydrogenated; Nicotinamide; Calcium-D-Pantothenate; Lecithin IP (Soy); Riboflavin; Pyridoxin HCI; Water; dyes: cocoa powder and Lemon Flavour, natural; Pteroylmonoglutamic Acid (Folic Acid)

Fenugreek + Vitamin Hair Capsule and Shampoo: 

My Experience, E.D.E
“Due to a Health Problem, my hair started falling out in large quantities, especially during washing. This problem persisted for several months and, obviously, I was very worried.
Because the problem seemed to be related to my general health and not to changes in the weather, the climate or the season of the year, I looked for a nutrient-related remedy and was advised to use  Arcon Tisane Fenugreek Hair Capsules .
Within about 3 to 4 months, new hair started to grow visibly, both in between and at the fringes of my existing hair, making my hair look fuller and healthier.
My hair is back to its normal fullness now and washing it with Fenugreek Shampoo gives it a super look and a wonderfully healthy shine. The shampoo obviously does a great job removing dirt, dust and hairspray.
I can truly recommend both products and I am and will remain a happy user.”
Yours sincerely
E. D. E.

An Excerpt from the Dharmender Article

Treatments that work to stop hair loss 

By Dharmender 

Several studies have shown that certain non-drug products promote hair growth but none have yet been approved by the FDA. This is partly due to the prohibitive costs involved in conducting trials to prove that the products are effective for the purpose of marketing them as hair loss treatments. Many individuals and dermatologists nonetheless recommend use of certain non-drug treatments as an alternative or complement to drug therapy. 

In many instances the treatments are based on natural ingredients that stimulate similar responses to those of the prescribed drugs but without the side effects. The information provided here presents a sample of products that have been subjected to testing or at least have had their effectiveness supported by independent feedback. 

One such product is Arcon Tisane which has become Europe’s top selling natural supplement for hair loss. Arcon Tisane has been clinically tested and has received widespread media coverage of its success in combating hair loss. 

It comes as a capsule and sublingual spray containing saw palmetto and fenugreek stimulating a response similar to that of finasteride by inhibiting the production of DHT.



A Success Story

Daily routine often brings about decisive innovations: The active substance combination of fenugreek seed concentrate and the micronutrients selected by Arcon is unique as an effective hair treatment. This nutritional supplement is a milestone with regard to hair loss amongst men and women of all ages. What is globally sold today started with an almost accidental occurrence in Singen am Bodensee [on Lake Constance]. In the summer of 1982, company founder Heinz Mai – an admitted supporter of naturopathy – actually wanted to combat a stubborn bout of bronchitis with the help of a complicated-to-prepare tea from old herbal books. He especially required fenugreek seeds for this tea. He continually drank this very aromatic-tasting tea over the course of months and noticed – in addition to the alleviation of the bronchitis – an unforeseen and at the same time incredible additional effect. The hairs in the temple region became thicker and receding temple hairs smaller. Not only did his wife notice this, but soon the hairdresser also noticed it. After first noticing this phenomenon, years of international research and the exchange of views with scientists on the fenugreek plant and its seed followed. The result was a fundamental knowledge of the fenugreek plant as well as a consistent (and lasting until today) further development of the active substance combinations. Worldwide patent applications and an initial study in close cooperation with scientists and pharmacists followed. A fenugreek seed concentrate was developed with the support of renowned experts under the premise of careful processing. After lengthy experiments, the fenugreek seed concentrate – enriched with vitamins – came onto the market for the first time in 1987 in the form of soft gelatine capsules under the name “Arcon-Tisane Hair Vitamin Capsules”. ARCON emerged as a corporate name from the English-language “Hair Conditioner”, and the product name “Tisane” (French for “herbal tea”) is an allusion to the origin of the product. The first batches of Arcon-Tisane hair vitamin capsules were still offered in glass bottles.
