Cosmetics are a necessity of modern people’s daily lives and are used for skin cleaning, moisturizing, covering, beautifying, protection, and even repair. Therefore, they are very important for most people. Cosmeceuticals is a term from the hybrid of “cosmetic” and “pharmaceutical”, which perform the purposes of cosmetic use for health-related functions. Cosmetics can be naturally derived or chemically synthesized. However, ideally, cosmeceuticals obtained from nature sources should be better for safe/healthy and economic/commercial requirements.
This Special Issue, "Cosmeceuticals from Natural Sources", will publish papers covering the current developments in natural cosmeceuticals/ingredients for cosmetics. It not only helps the readers to gain the knowledge form all the contributions, but also provides overviewing of the field to improve cosmetic industry growth in the future.
