Oleoresins are extracted from the crude botanicals using various solvents (e.g., ether, alcohol,
or other suitable solvent) and filtration, followed by evaporation of the solvent. A thick, oily
resinous mass remains, consisting of an oil, either fixed or volatile, holding resin and some-
times other active matter in solution. Oleoresins are decidedly more potent than fluid extracts.
However, most are difficult to work with due to their gummy nature, which makes them hard
to dissolve in cosmetic preparations.*
