The scope of the congress includes deliberations on product development and academic research to identify the sustainable use of natural ingredients such as essential oils and other plant extracts in skin, hair, perfumery and personal care products. The congress also aims to discuss the possibilities of exploration of plant based novel natural products which could be used as phytotherapeutics and phytonutraceutics. Ayurveda as a system of medicine has been practiced in India for more than 5000 years now and has emerged as an important alternative to other systems practiced all over the world. The Indian Edition of the congress being held at Udaipur will be a good opportunity to learn about the latest advances in the scientific research and industrial practices in India and worldwide.
