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 Ronald DiSalvo, Julian Hewitt, David Morrison and many more.

"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."
