Natural vs. Organic: Botanical Resources

Posted: February 2, 2009, from the February 2009 issue of Skin Inc. magazine.

As discussed in Carl Thornfeldt, MD’s article "Natural vs. Organic" from the February 2009 issue of Skin Inc. magazine, botanical ingredients and the ways they are used can be tricky. To further collect more data and research on botanical ingredients, investigate with these resources:

  • Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database, 2008; Therapeutic Research Faculty, Stockton, CA
  • PDR (Physician’s Desk Reference) for Herbal Medicines, 4th Ed., 2007; Thomson, Montvale, NJ
  • Medicinal Plants of the World, 2004; VanWyck B.E., Wink M.; Timber Press, Portland, OR
  • Clinical Botanical Medicine, 2003; Yarnell E., Abscal K., Hooper C.; Mary Ann Liebert Inc., Larchmont, NY
