For millennia, people have turned to the power of plants for good health. Medical documents from Ancient Egypt, the healing tradition of Ayurvedic botanicals and the practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine all include active use of herbs and botanicals. Even today, the World Health Organization estimates 80 percent of the world’s population continues to use traditional therapies—many of which are derived from plants—for primary health care.

In the Western world, formulators have gone beyond traditional extraction—the use of a solvent to dissolve some of its components to create a new product—to investigate the range of phytochemicals, determine efficacy of ratios, and even explore ways to improve bioavailability. At the same time, consumers are demanding products that make use of natural extracts, whether that’s through their cosmetics, their beverages or their food supplements. Discover new innovations supporting the growth of the botanical market, and driving product innovation.
