Hops extracts are used in herbal medicines to treat symptoms such as restlessness, anxiety and sleep disorders. In folk medicine, hops are also used externally for the treatment of skin injuries and internally for cystitis [2].*

Hops extracts are mainly used in the beer industry for flavouring and preservation. Due to its characteristic flavour the extract can also be used in beverages, confectionery, bakery products or dairy products.*

Due to its physiological effect and traditional use, hop extract is also suitable for use in food supplements [3].*

The extract can be used in perfumes with aromatic, herbal notes. Hops also gives dark hair a beautiful shine and is therefore also well suited for use in hair care products [4]. Due to its good effectiveness against gram-positive bacteria, hop extract is also a good additive for deodorizing soaps, shower gels, deodorant sticks and aerosol sprays, as gram-positive bacteria are responsible for unpleasant body odours [5].*
