Botanical Extracts are made from different types of plants that also have an extra functional value.
The Ancient Egyptians had a list of over 800 different types of botanicals designed to be of medical benefit, and with health becoming a larger concern in this modern era, botanicals are becoming popular once more. These types of extracts are used in personal care items and food to offer some type of health benefit. Botanical extract benefits vary depending on the plant used. Some popular botanicals include valerian, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, crandberry, and echinacea.
