Summary

At present, the concept of environmental protection, green and sustainable development has gained popular support worldwide, which makes the production of clean production become the general trend in the development of the fine chemical industry, including perfumes, fragrances, and cosmetics. The research and development of renewable materials have become a hot topic all over the world. The use of renewable materials can not only save a lot of energy and improve the use of raw materials but also maximize the function of materials in many cases, especially biocompatibility.


This Special Issue mainly focuses on the application of renewable materials in perfumes, fragrances, and cosmetics. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

1) Preparation methods of renewable materials for perfumes, fragrances, and cosmetics;

2) Micro-structural characterization of renewable materials for perfumes, fragrances, and cosmetics;

3) Physicochemical and functional properties of renewable materials in perfumes, fragrances, and cosmetics;

4) Applications of renewable materials in perfumes, fragrances, and cosmetics;

5) Interaction mechanism between renewable materials and biological organisms;

6) Biodegradable, reusable, recyclable and renewable materials.

Both research and review articles on these topics are welcomed.
