  • Editor Information

Apart from two completely new chapters on skin delivery written specifically for this volume, this book contains articles that have been published over the last several years in Cosmetics & Toiletries, Perfumer & Flavorist and GCI magazines. These publications from Allured Business Media cover a wide range of subjects and each has a different viewpoint on our industry. Unique about this compilation is that it combines in a structured way what the different disciplines of these magazines have to offer in a specific topic: from the more fundamental science background of skin delivery to the more applied side of cosmetic product forms, such as manufacturing and production.

This informative collection of articles covers a variety of topics to create a solid foundation of knowledge about skin delivery systems in the cosmetics industry. Topics include:

  • Basics of skin penetration
  • Skin barrier maintenance and repair
  • Measurement techniques
  • Emulsions as delivery systems
  • Vesicles as delivery systems
