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 from academia, such as professors Howard Maibach, MD, and Randy R. Wickett, as well as respected industry experts such as T. Joseph Lin and Linda Rhein.
