Botanicals are gaining importance in recent times as active ingredients for cosmetic formulations due to their dermal protective effect against the harmful substances from endogenous and exogenous sources. The probability of exposure of the skin to UV radiation and other environmental factors are more since it is present in the outer layer of body as the primary defense mechanism. The exposure of skin to UV radiation poses erythema, the production of inflammatory mediators, the alteration of… Expand
