Sage has a spicy and aromatic character. The extract can be used to flavour food preparations and beverages. The use of sage is particularly popular in Mediterranean cuisine. Due to its digestive effect, sage is also used to season fatty foods.*

Due to its positive effects on the mouth and throat area, as well as digestion, the extract is also suitable for use in food supplements.*

Due to its antimicrobial and aromatizing properties, sage extract is used in a wide range of cosmetic products, such as skin care creams, cleansing products and perfumes [3]. In addition, sage extracts promote hair growth and are therefore suitable for use in hair care products and shampoos [4].*
