Handbook of Cosmetic Science and Technology is the standard reference for cosmetic chemists and dermatologists seeking the latest technology in the formulation, design, testing, use, and production of cosmetic products for skin, hair, and nails.

New features:

  • chapters reorganized by skin functions
  • ingredients, products, efficacy measurement, and mechanisms
  • skin types, skin perception, and targeted products
  • skin aging and cosmetics for the elderly
  • current testing methods and the evolution of testing instruments for skin and hair
  • new ingredients, delivery systems, and testing methodologies
  • skin physiology and cosmetic product design
  • interactions affecting and attributed to cosmetic products
  • cosmetic ingredients, vehicles, and finished products
  • differences between pure cosmetics for enhancement and cosmetics used to treat
  • standards in cosmetic products that improve appearance, protect targets, and maintain natural functions
