What is Plant Extract?

The product is formed by using plants as raw materials, following a physical and chemical extraction and separation process to selectively obtain and concentrate one or more active ingredients in the plant according to the needs of the final product, without changing the structure of its active ingredients. Usually refers to the parts of a plant that are both biologically active and have medicinal value.

Plant extracts are generally considered as pharmaceutical intermediates and are currently widely used as raw materials or excipients in pharmaceuticals, health foods, tobacco, cosmetics, and more.

Plant extracts VS Traditional Chinese medicine extracts

Plant extracts include traditional Chinese medicine extracts in their conceptual extension. Traditional Chinese medicine extracts are a new type of traditional Chinese medicine product that integrates modern pharmaceutical technology. Essentially, they are still traditional Chinese medicine, but they are also partially used for other purposes beyond medicine, such as cosmetics and health foods.

Plant extracts and modern plant medicines have a cross disciplinary connotation in their concepts, containing each other's partial content; Modern plant medicine is largely based on extracts, which are the main raw materials and components of modern plant medicine; Some plant extract varieties are directly used for medicinal purposes.

At present, there is no unified definition of plant medicine worldwide. But most countries are accustomed to referring to herbal medicine as natural medicine. Natural medicine refers to all drugs that originate from nature and are used to treat diseases without chemical treatment. Traditional Chinese medicine and herbal medicine should be included in their scope.
