Nutraceutical and cosmetics industries have grown rapidly in the recent years. Progression of technology has enabled more effective and improved nutraceutical and cosmetics formulations to be developed. The use of these products to accomplish desired therapeutic effect has found its place in clinical practices. Furthermore, the wide use of nature-based nutraceutical and cosmetics products whether as complementary medicines or as personal care products has increased interests among researchers, healthcare providers and even users regarding their efficacy and safety. Evidence-based practice underlying the use of nutraceutical and cosmetics products should be warranted. In addition, regulation system for these products should be strengthened to ensure product quality and safety.
