Healthcare professionals, including doctors, pharmacists and nurses, are often confronted with patients who use over-the-counter (OTC) herbal medicinal products and food supplements. While taking responsibility for one’s own health and treatment options is encouraged, many patients use these products based on limited (and sometimes inaccurate) information from non-scientific sources, such as the popular press and internet. There is a clear need to offer balanced, well-informed advice to patients, yet a number of studies have shown that, generally, conventionally trained health practitioners consider their knowledge about herbal medicinal products and supplements to be weak. Phytopharmacy fills this knowledge gap, and is intended for use by the busy pharmacist, nurse, or doctor, as well as the ‘expert patient’ and students of pharmacy and herbal medicine. It presents clear, practical and concise monographs on over a hundred popular herbal medicines and plant-based food supplements. Information provided in each monograph includes: • Indications • Summary and appraisal of clinical and pre-clinical evidence • Potential interactions • Contraindications • Possible adverse effects An overview of the current regulatory framework is also outlined, notably the EU Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products Directive. This stipulates that only licensed products or registered traditional herbal medicinal products (THRs), which have assured quality and safety, can now legally be sold OTC. Monographs are included of most of the major herbal ingredients found in THRs, and also some plant-based food supplements, which while not strictly medicines, may also have the potential to exert a physiological effect.

Balanced coverage of natural cosmetics, and what it really means to be "green" The use of natural ingredients and functional botanical compounds in cosmetic products is on the rise. According to industry estimates, sales of natural personal care products have exceeded $7 billion in recent years. Nonetheless, many misconceptions about natural products—for instance, what "green" and "organic" really mean—continue to exist within the industry. Formulating, Packaging, and Marketing of Natural Cosmetic Products addresses this confusion head-on, exploring and detailing the sources, processing, safety, efficacy, stability, and formulation aspects of natural compounds in cosmetic and personal care products. Designed to provide industry professionals and natural product development experts with the essential perspective and market information needed to develop truly "green" cosmetics, the book covers timely issues like biodegradable packaging and the potential microbial risks they present, the use of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) to identify biomarkers, and chromatographic methods of analyzing natural products. A must-read for industry insiders, Formulating, Packaging, and Marketing of Natural Cosmetic Products provides the reader with basic tools and concepts to develop naturally derived formulas.

This book marks a new authority on herbal medicine.
This book marks a new authority on herbal medicine. Following the indispensable pioneering work of the Commission E in Germany, ESCOP has taken the lead role across Europe over the past decade in reviewing the therapeutic uses of herbal medicinal products. This is now recognized by the European Medicines Evaluation Agency, which formally receives ESCOP monographs as a basis for core dossiers on herbal medicines. Initial funding for the enterprise was provided by the European Commission. ESCOP, representing national phytotherapy associations across Europe, is uniquely placed to provide an international consensus. Preparation of the monographs by the ESCOP Scientific Committee has involved delegates from 15 countries with the assistance of numerous external experts on herbal medicine and an eminent Board of Supervising Editors. Sixty ESCOP monographs were published during the late 1990s. All have been updated and expanded, and this second edition includes a further twenty monographs. The text constitutes an up-to-date review of scientific information on the therapeutic uses of herbal medicines, including indications, dosage, contra-indications, interactions and undesirable effects, together with summaries of pharmacological, clinical and toxicological data. It is extensively referenced to scientific literature - almost 5,000 full citations appear in the book. The ESCOP monographs are an invaluable resource for health professionals, regulators, manufacturers and many others. They provide the evidence base for clinical use of herbal medicinal products.
