and Deodorants

Second Edition
edited by Karl Laden

This edition of Antiperspirants and Deodorants, so extensively updated and rewritten that it is virtually a new book, highlights the latest developments in ingredients, products, and patents in the decade since the publication of the first edition—reviewing current regulatory issues, questions about safety and toxicology, testing, and recent data on skin microorganisms, odor generation, and sweat gland physiology.

Containing the wealth of information found in the original publication, this unique reference combines the work of recognized authorities from industry and academia, and includes valuable information for researchers, product development scientists, manufacturers, and marketers in the field of antiperspirants and deodorants.

Antiperspirants and Deodorants 2nd Edition traces the history of these cosmetic products, considers government regulation of the industry and how it affects marketing, provides an overview of the structure and function of eccrine and apocrine sweat glands, describes the chemistry of antiperspirant salts, and explores deodorant ingredients.
