Botanicals have become widely used in many beauty products and for the purpose of aromatherapy. Phytochemistry-the chemistry of plants, plant processes, and plant products-is of great interest to those involved with both the medicinal and cosmetic properties of botanicals. Botanicals: A Phytocosmetic Desk Reference is the first reference to approach this popularly treated topic from a scientific point of view. It offers a clear, organized approach to plant constituents, properties, and cosmetic applications and covers the most common folkloric use of botanicals. By providing an overview of the most important botanicals in use today, this reference will be of great use to phytochemists, cosmetic chemists, herbalists, and aromatherapists.
