In recent years, there has been a great research interest in bio-based biopolymers due to their potential as alternative polymers to the traditional petroleum-based synthetic counterparts. Research is underway around the globe on the development of 'greener' technologies. Recently, bio-based bio-constructs are being engineered for target applications in different bio- and non-bio sectors of the modern world to address growing concerns of a global dependence on non-renewable petroleum-based resources. The utilization of properly designed and structured materials thus allows for the creation of well-defined environment that induces a series of directed measures, and so on...

Background: Vetiver is a key ingredient for the perfume industry nowadays. However, with the constant and rapid changes of personal tastes, this appeal could vanish and this sector could decline quite quickly. New dissemination paths need to be found to tap this valuable resource. Methods: In this way, its potential use in cosmetics either as an active ingredient per se (with cosmeceutical significance or presenting antimicrobial activity) has hence been explored in vitro. Results: In this contribution, we demonstrated that vetiver essential oil displays no particularly significant and innovative cosmetic potential value in formulations apart from its scent already largely exploited...

Organoleptic agents constitute an important niche in the field of pharmaceutical excipients. These agents encompass a range of additives responsible for coloring, flavoring, sweetening, and texturing formulations. All these agents have come to play a significant role in pharmaceuticals and cosmetics due to their ability to increase patient compliance by elevating a formulation's elegance and esthetics. However, it is essential to review their physical and chemical attributes before use, as organoleptic agents, similar to active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), are susceptible to physical and chemical instability leading to degradation...
