About the Book

Cosmetics: Science and Technology has many predecessors and among its contemporaries does not pretend to preempt the field. The burgeoning of a science of cosmetics, a technology of cosmetics, without the abondonment of what must in part remain a craft, a skill and an art, brought forth several excellent books in various languages, which sought to summarise the state of the knowledge. Among these Cosmetics: Science and Technology, published for the first time in 1957, was unique in that it was a collective effort of 61 specialists in the field. In this aspect lies both the potential strength and possible hazard of such an undertaking. The first edition a heavy volume of more than 1400 pages, was reviewed widely and enthusiastically by science and trade journals and was warmely received by members of the profession. In reviewing the chapters for the second edition, some authors considered it necessary to start anew, with a completely different approach, based on the research findings. Some changes that have occurred are not reflected in science and technology, but are, rather in fashion and fad. Such changes concern the chemist insofar as the products are affected by the fancy of the day, but they are irrelevant to a description of the state of the science. Volume 1 contains descriptive material on the manufacture and formulation of fifteen different products and classes of products. Volume 2 contains descriptive material on the manufacture and formulation of eighteen different products and classes of products. Volume 3 contains chapters on the physiology of the skin and hair, the physiology of sweat, the use of colours in cosmetics, problems of quality control, presentation and phychological testing, historical information and legal information. Salient Features Rewrote the chapters to bring them up-to-date Regulations of colours and colour additives have been expanded, bringing about toxocological studies Bacteriological aspects of cosmetic products have been explored and studied
