Many plants have been used for cosmetic purposes since ancient times, especially for today, in the cosmetic industry, the demand for natural and non-harmful sources has increased, rather than synthetic substances. Considering these two conditions, it is observed that there are many plants in our country and this diversity finds a lot of space in the cosmetics industry. Due to an increasing number of natural cosmetic products for consumers, in this paper, it is aimed to create a source of guidance for domestic suppliers/manufacturers by utilizing the diversity of natural resources and to increase the diversity of domestic natural products used in the industry.
