Cosmetics and Green Chemistry: Extraction without Solvent
Portolan F., PhD, Founder and Director of Natur Insight (France)
Almost every foodie buzzword – organic, gluten-free, vegan – ends up moving from the fresh produce counter to the beauty counter. The latest to make the jump is cold-pressing. Once the hallmark of quality juices, the term is now proudly printed on oils and face creams. It is however a relatively old technique that is now being revived to compensate for extraction methods using solvents that are potentially toxic and harmful to humans and the environment. Cold press extraction is a mechanical extraction method performed at low temperatures that requires little energy. It does not involve any additional thermal or chemical extraction. It is mainly used to extract oil from various plant matrices such as oilseeds. Its use can be extended to the production of fresh plant juices and when used for the extraction of essential oils contained in the epicarp of citrus fruits such as lemon, mandarin or bergamot, this method is also known as the scarification method.

Mamontova A.A., student, Tarasov V.E., PhD (Technical Sciences), Professor, KubSTU, Krasnodar
The article describes the development of formulations and methods for preparing an alginate mask and a solvent for it. There are a relevance and novelty of the invention of this cosmetics’ complex. Balanced recipes and methods for their preparation have been developed. The claimed alginate mask and solvent for it include grain and vegetable raw materials processing products – rice meal and grape processing products. The purpose of the research is the development of formulations and methods for preparing a complex of cosmetic products based on rice and grape processing products. As a result of the study, the task of the work was completed – the creation of a cosmetic products’ complex with high consumer properties without analogues. A technical result has been achieved – an increase in the softening of the surface layers of the skin, their nutrition, moisturizing, and the degree of whitening, as well as the removal of tension and fatigue, the absence of an irritating effect.
