International Phytoessence Consortium

The International Society for Phytoessence Science was initiated in 2013, and nowadays its membership comprise of scientists and industry experts from more than twenty one countries. In 2014, our membership requested an official publication for the society in form of an Open-access, peer review with potential for indexing at various agencies. Accordingly, society has established the International Journal of Phytoessence and Natural Ingredients (IJPNI) that published abstracts and manuscripts from our events in addition to a number of manuscript submitted from elsewhere.
