"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."
