Cosmetic ingredients are chemicals used in personal care products such as shampoos, soap, lotions, powders and perfumes. Cosmetic and personal care products play a significant role in our lives, not just to enhance our aesthetic beauty but for well being too.For instance, toothpaste and sun creams are used for well being and skin care, while moisturizers and hair care products such as shampoos are used as grooming products. Cosmetic ingredients are categorized as organic and synthetic.Organic ingredients are extracted from natural sources. These ingredients include plant extract, vitamins, waxes, proteins, oils & fats, thickening agents, additives and preservatives. Growing health concern and increasing demand for environment friendly products is expected to lead to a rapid transition from synthetic cosmetics ingredients such as aluminum salt, paraben, phthalates and petrochemicals products towards organic substitutes.

Hair and skin care cosmetics ingredients is expected to dominate the global cosmetic ingredients.Demand for natural hair care without ammonia, paraben and sulfur is increasing at a rapid pace.Consumers are increasingly inclined towards hair care products for dandruff protection and hair fall control.
