The second issue of “Green Ingredients in Cosmetics and Food” is dedicated to the sustainable development of natural active ingredients and their application in cosmetics and foods. In the last few years, researchers focused their attention on the exploitation of natural sources such as waste from agriculture or food chains to recover active ingredients of added value. This is an opportunity to promote sustained development in a circular way. Pure active ingredients or mixes of substances may be recovered thanks to different green procedures that avoid organic solvents or energy-consuming processes. The development of advanced and innovative extraction procedures is demanding, as is the development of analytical procedures necessary for a full characterization of these active ingredients. This Special Issue welcomes original works or reviews reporting the sustainable development of new active ingredients for cosmetics and food applications.
