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
