The Modern CosmEthics association stepped into the world of cosmetic science back in 2018 when we published the book ‘Modern Cosmetics: Ingredients of Natural Origin, A Scientific View, Volume 1’. It is tremendous recognition for us that it has become one of the world’s leading publications in this field. It is now present in 93 countries across the world!
Our educational activities didn’t end there. Three years later, the first volume of the CosmEthically ACTIVE Journal has seen the light of day. With the journal, we continue to follow our main goal of bringing the facts closer to you. It is not only a relevant, state-of-the-art source of literature about cosmetic science and natural cosmetics, but also an inspiration for building and improving your own cosmetics brand.
So, today the CosmEthically ACTIVE Journal goes on! This volume presents:
– Three popular yet controversial ingredients: bakuchiol, resveratrol and hyaluronic acid. Are they worth the hype?
– Four chemically complex plant-based substances: CO2 extracts, unsaponifiable compounds, plantain extracts and anti-inflammatory ingredients. They show a highly relevant potential for use in active cosmetics.
– Two sustainable and environmentally-friendly concepts in modern formulating: responsible cleansing and an evidence-based procedure for the extraction of grapes using glycerol and water. All of us can contribute to better formulating practices.
Last but not least, I would like to sincerely thank the companies that financially supported the release of the CosmEthically ACTIVE Journal 2022. We have recognised them as trustworthy partners who offer materials and services of the highest quality. I kindly encourage you to get to know and establish contact with them.
In the end… We have always been a small team of motivated researchers focused on the concepts of evidence-based science and green technologies in the area of medicinal plants. The recognition of our goals and professional competencies gives us additional motivation to promise you:
We will continue working for you and with you!
Sending you CosmEthically ACTIVE wishes.
