Cosmetic Delivery Systems Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Novel Cosmetic Delivery System
edited by Shlomo Magdassi

This innovative reference highlights the uses of delivery systems in cosmetics, analyzing new approaches for obtaining sophisticated cosmetic products and examining the most common methods for enhancing the skin's penetration properties. Covering a wide range of established and burgeoning techniques

Novel Cosmetic Delivery Systems:

  • describes the skin's effectiveness as a selective barrier to the penetration of compounds
  • charts the observation, evaluation, and instrumental analysis of the biological effects of cosmetics on the skin
  • discusses certain problems with product stability that hinder optimal performance
  • reviews in vivo and in vitro methods for quantifying permeants within the skin
  • summarizes the methods of preparing novel emulsions and vesicular carriers
  • focuses on the properties and applications of PFC-based gels
  • shows how cyclodextrins can be used in cosmetics
  • profiles the formation and properties of particulate systems
  • and more!

With over 1200 references, tables, equations, drawings, photographs, and micrographs, Novel Cosmetic Delivery Systems will benefit cosmetic chemists, scientists, and technologists; research and development personnel in cosmetics and fragrance industries; pharmaceutical formulation, colloid, physical, and fragrance chemists; surfactant scientists; fragrance technologists; skin physiologists, pharmacists and pharmacologists; biochemists and biologists; dermatologists; toxicologists; and graduate students in these disciplines.
