Edited by well-known and respected author Mitchell L. Schlossman, a contributor to the original edition of The Chemistry and Manufacture of Cosmetics (published in 1975), Schlossman worked closely with M.G. DeNavarre, its editor. He felt obliged to carry on DeNavarre's work to update these volumes so that they may continue to be an important guide to formulating cosmetic scientists.

Chapters include contributions from knowledgeable and accomplished experts in their fields such as Howard I. Maibach, PhD, Zoe Daelos, MD, Johann W. Wiechers, PhD, Karl Lintner, PhD and Anthony J. O'Lenick, Jr.

"I use The Chemistry and Manufacture of Cosmetics on a daily basis to review new and old procedures and processes. These books are a valuable resource — my be all, end all book of books."

—David Zelesnick, Nu-World, Sr. V.P, R & D / I. C.

"M.G. DeNavarre's classic handbook with the same title was first published in 1941, and the last posthumous edition appeared in 2002. It is here succeeded by accounts that incorporate new methods and materials of cosmetics in the 21st century. Contributors identified only by name discuss such topics as acne treatment ingredients, anti-aging ingredients, marine products, exfoliating agents, silicone polymers in personal care, stabilized omega-3 in cosmeceuticals, lip plumpers, skin lightening technologies, and patents."
