The United Nations has proclaimed May 22 the International Day for Biological Diversity (IDB) to increase understanding and awareness of biodiversity issues. 

This year the theme is Biodiversity for Sustainable Development and is said to reflect the importance of efforts made at all levels to establish a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as part of the United Nations Post-2015 Development Agenda for the period of 2015-2030.

To celebrate the day, the Union for Ethical BioTrade (UEBT) has decided to prepare a special infographic to raise awareness about the importance of biodiversity and its respect.

The cosmetics industry in particular depends on biodiversity as it provides a source of innovation and raw materials.

Typically, these raw materials are used after undergoing some type of transformation, producing oils, surfactants, emulsifiers and other ingredients.

Take a look at the infographic below from the UEBT:
