Abstract: In this paper, a study was conducted on the influence of soil and extraction solvent on the active ingredient content of extracts from fat grass - Portulaca Oleracea L - indigenous species, in this case especially the content in organic silicon - element of great importance in the antioxidant, anti-wrinkle, repairing, moisturizing and emollient properties of cosmetic products containing active ingredients of natural plant rich in it. For the study, both fresh and dry plants were used, which was shredded and selected as superior in terms of qualitative and quantitative composition the extract of Portulaca Oleracea L (dry) in Glycerin 20%, with significant content in organic silicon. To determine the organic silicon content, the atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS) method from the 9th European Pharmacopoeia, the current edition was used. Pharmacotoxicological studies performed on cosmetics with this active ingredient confirmed the safety of application to the human body. The results obtained from the physico-chemical, microbiological and biological complex study show that the activity of capitalizing on the plant called "Fat Grass" as an organic silicon source can become a profitable, economically beneficial activity, but especially from the point of view of cosmetic effects.
