Short communication Open Access Perspective of natural products in skincare
According to American Academy of Dermatology (www.aad.org/ public/kids/skin), skin comprises the largest organ of human body with over 20 vital physiological functions. Skin which is a physical barrier to withstand pressure and trauma, recognize sensations and pain, protects the body from the external environment such as pollution and radiation, sunlight, keeping out harmful microbes and chemicals, and helps to regulate temperature, fluid balance and excretion, involved in endocrine function through the production of Cholecalciferol (D3) by epidermis. Skin care products are the medicinal preparations intended to be placed in contact with the various external parts of the human body that manifest beneficial topical actions and provide protection against degenerative skin conditions.1 Preparations of natural ingredients have been traditionally used for centuries for skin care purposes; nowadays they are becoming more popular in modern formulations due to consumers concerns about synthetic ingredients/ chemical substances. The use of plants for medicinal purposes is as old as humanity and plants were the main source of all personal care and cosmetics before the use of synthetic substances with similar properties.2 Additionally, the use of plant extracts in skin care products is highlighted by consumer demands, which are increasingly concerned with buying ecologically friendly products. Natural skin care products improved skin tone, texture, and appearance by delivering nutrients necessary for healthy skin. Herbal extracts are primarily added to the skincare formulations due to several associated properties such as antioxidant capacity, pigmentation inhibition, and antimicrobial activity, which can be beneficial for attenuation and prevention of various skin conditions.3,4 Cosmetics alone are not sufficient to take care of skin conditions; it requires association of active natural ingredients to repair the damage and to inhibit the ageing of the skin. Herbal skincare and cosmetics have gained much popularity and claimed to have efficacy and intrinsic acceptability due to routine use in daily life and avoid the side effects which are commonly seen in synthetic products. On the other hand, compared to synthetic skincare and cosmetic ingredients, herbal products are mild and biodegradable, exhibiting low toxicity. Natural plant molecules remain particularly interesting for new studies and a number of researches carrying in different parts of the world on medicinal plants to developed newer herbal skincare and cosmetic products having lesser side effects and rich sources of beneficial compounds.1,2 In the last few years, there has been an exponential growth in the field of herbal skincare and cosmetic products and they are gaining popularity both in developing and developed countries. Given the inherent economic potential in the exploitation of natural resources in ecosystems, plant extracts, essential oils, vegetable oils and bioactive complexes exhibit a huge potential to be used in skincare and cosmetic products in order to beautify and maintain the physiological and biochemical balance and healthy condition of the human skin.
The personal care product category remains the largest category in the beauty business and its global value sales will reach $630 billion by 2017. The general market demand growth rate for natural and organic skincare products alone is growing faster than the overall market growth rate. The global demand for organic personal care products is expected to reach $13.2billion by 2018. Health awareness around the globe drives the natural and organic personal care product

market, igniting a major shift from synthetic to organic personal care products. Organic personal care products in North America represented about 35% of the global organic personal market in 2014 and the natural cosmetics market hit $30billion last year, predicted to have an annual growth rate of 10% until 2019. There is a noticeable increase in organic personal care products in European countries, China and India. Strong growth in distribution channels and the number of new product launches in developed as well as emerging economies is expected to trigger growth of this industry as well.
Chemicals and synthetic ingredients, used in many skincare and cosmetic products, can cause a variety of undesirable side effects, especially for people with sensitive skin and potential allergic reactions. The overwhelming array of synthetic and potentially harmful ingredients used in skincare and cosmetic products (health hazards associated phthalates, parabens, petroleum based chemicals, aluminum salts, etc.) are main reason for freshly produced organic and natural skincare, based on innovative and up to date multifunctional and effective formulations which include products with anti-aging, skin lightening and super moisturizing benefits. Large corporations are also attempting to follow the natural trend, due to consumer requirements. The most recent news is that the first time Procter and Gamble (P&G) has published a list of 140 fragrances which they no longer use in their products, which, according to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), are linked to endocrine disruption, reproductive toxicity and cancer.5
In order to create a natural and/or organic formulation, plant derived bioactive compounds from essential oils, cold pressed vegetable oils, natural resins, extracts and other natural; raw materials are combined with plant derived emulsifiers, surfactants, humectants, pigments and other ingredients.6 Taking into consideration the huge variety of the market supply of organic plant derived ingredients which are often adulterated with synthetic or toxic intermediates. It is important to choose top quality, analytically tested ingredients from a reliable supplier, such as companies proven to follow a quality over quantity concept: Symrise, Firmenich, Citrus & Allied Essences,
