Since past year, natural products-based cosmeceuticals have gained a large amount of attention not only from researchers but also from the public due to the general belief that they are harmless. Notably, in present years, the demand for cosmeceuticals from the marine resources has been exponentially on the rise due to their unique chemical and biological properties that are not found in terrestrial resources. The recent review article delivered the importance of marine compounds, stressing new chemical entities with cosmeceutical potential from the marine natural resources and their mechanisms of action by which these compounds utilize the body functions as well as their related health benefits. The marine environments are the most important that give biologically active substances whose potential is still to be find for use as pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, and cosmeceuticals. The marine organisms are not only an consequence renewable source of valuable bulk compounds used in cosmetic industry such as agar and carrageenan, which are used as gelling and thickening agents to increase the viscosity of cosmetic formulations. The marine molecules can also function as active ingredients, being the main compounds that determine the function of cosmeceuticals. The recent review focus on the role of marine derived compound in human skin and their collection, isolation & extraction and application.
