“The 47 articles originally published in Cosmetics & Toiletries magazine are divided into sections on skin pigmentation, the behavior of aging skin, genomics, antioxidants, novel ingredients, and moisturization. Topics include grapefruit extract, sirtuins, tetrapeptides, algal extracts, cutaneous blood flow, mutations in mitochondrial DNA, and recent advances in slimming treatments. A few of the contributors are academics, but most work in the laboratories of cosmetic manufacturers. B&W images and tables are provided.”
