ROLE OF COSMETIC SCIENCE IN BIODIVERSITY AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENTS.B. Kulkarni, N.D. Bajpai and P.S. Digarse
In the present Scenario due to ambitious research programmes and their implementation, the ecosystem and biodiversity are the major sufferers. There arises a need to introduce Greenovate technology in different disciplines like zoology, botany, chemistry, environmental science, soil science, oceanography, atmospheric science, ethics and cosmetic science as well. Terrestrial animals have been used for animal testing and also as a source of Cosmetic ingredient like fat and lard. Similarly, extinct plants and marine animals are source of various raw materials used in cosmetics .Such extraction of natural resources pose a direct threat to biodiversity. UN General Assembly has declared 2010 as "Year of Biodiversity". This calls for immediate steps to conserve the biodiversity. Cosmetic Industry has taken optimistic steps towards conservation of biodiversity and sustainable development by re-inventing, re-launching and re-branding the products. Hence present study is undertaken to investigate the sustainable alternatives for terrestrial animals and plants, discovery and application of renewable raw material sources and use of biotechnological concepts while conserving biodiversity.
