The topical problem of modern medicine, pharmacology and cosmetology is to substitute chemical antimicrobial products for natural plant components. One of such elements is biologically active components taken from plant extracts. Particular groups of chemical substances determine extracts activity. These active substances have different composition and refer to various chemical compound categories: flavonoids, terpenoids, glycosides, some saponins, dammar, phenolic compounds, vitamins, hormones, volatile compounds and tanning substances, carbohydrates and mineral substances. We used chromatographic method to extract particular chemical components from plant extracts under test. We also studied its properties (antimicrobial, antioxidant and etc.) and considered the possibility to use these components in production for pharmacology and cosmetology.
