Welcome to Sunil Dutta Purohit

It is a great pleasure and an honor to invite you to attend International Congress on “Plant-Based Natural Products: Phytocosmetics, Phytotherapeutics and Phytonutraceutics” to be held at Udaipur, Rajasthan, India from February 19-21, 2018. The event is being organized by Indian Society of Chemists and Biologists, Local Chapter (West Zone), Udaipur, Rajasthan and International Phytocosmetic Society, Boston, the USA in joint collaboration with Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Mohanlal Sukhadia University, Udaipur, Rajasthan, India.
The scope of the Congress includes deliberations on product development and academic research to identify the sustainable use of natural ingredients such as essential oils and other plant extracts in skin, hair, perfumery and personal care products. The Congress also aims to discuss the possibilities of exploration of plant-based novel natural products which could be used as phytotherapeutics and phyto-nutraceutics. Ayurveda as a system of medicine has been practiced in India for more than 5000 years now and has emerged as an important alternative to other systems practiced all over the world. The Indian Edition of the congress being held at Udaipur will be a good opportunity to learn about the latest advances in the scientific research and industrial practices in India and worldwide.
The congress will take place at Golden Jubilee Guest House Auditorium of Mohanlal Sukhadia University, New Campus, Udaipur, Rajasthan, India. Mohanlal Sukhadia University is NAAC ‘A’ Grade accredited State funded Indian university with world-class research infrastructure contributing significantly to the advancement of the science of plant-based natural products and plant biotechnology.
Rajasthan is known worldwide for its rich cultural heritage. Udaipur is one of the most beautiful cities in India. It is located amidst India’s most ancient mountain ranges “Aravallis” enriched with lush green vegetation dominated by plants of varied utility. Udaipur was voted as World’s Best City in 2009 by Travel and Leisure Magazine, USA while it was ranked 8th among 10 top cities of Asia in 2016 by the same magazine.
We hope you will join us for a unique opportunity for outstanding science at a place of scenic beauty enriched with its traditions, cultural heritage and hospitality.
The people, places, and plants altogether make Udaipur a unique destination – a place one would never like to miss.
