With the increasing awareness of challenges in terms of safety and environmental hazard associated with toxic chemicals used in cosmetics industry, there has been significant recent interest in leveraging phytochemistry as a new source of cosmetic actives.

The strategy for developing a phytocosmetic product is based on a multidisciplinary approach which relays from a captive plant cultivation, green extraction processes, robust chemical fingerprinting, performance and a favorable environmental finger print of an extract or EO which finally is integrated in a cosmetic product. Amit's talk will be focused on some case studies overviewing the phyto ingredient science behind an efficacious and safe cosmetic product.
