Special Issue "The Therapeutic Potential of Cosmeceuticals and Nutraceuticals"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2023 | Viewed by 5863
In our nature, there are various natural products that can be used by human beings. In the process of long history, we have discovered active ingredients derived from natural products and developed them into cosmetics and neutraceuticals, which are healthy functional foods. Among these active ingredients, there were cases where they had more effects as a new medicine. Recently, cosmetics companies are participating in the development of new medicine in addition to health functional foods, and pharmaceutical companies are expanding into health functional foods and cosmetics businesses as cash cows. Their common point is to discover and develop active ingredients from natural products.
Accordingly, this Special Issue on “The Therapeutic Potential of Cosmeceuticals and Nutraceuticals ” is aimed at presenting novel data on natural products that have some positive effects on metabolic diseases or skin diseases from active ingredients, which are used in cosmetics or health functional foods, and also provides an overview of the current knowledge in this field through reviews.
