Whether you’re a cosmetic chemist, scientist, dermatologist, pharmaceutical representative, plastic surgeon, or entrepreneur interested in starting a business in the cosmetic science industry, Harry’s Cosmeticology will help you increase your knowledge about the formulation, processes, ingredients, performance, and production of cosmetic products. Noted as one of the top technical cosmetic formulation books available today, Harry’s Cosmeticology includes writings from international cosmetic science experts including Dr. Martin M. Rieger.
Dr. Martin M. Rieger is well known in the industry as an award-winning cosmetic chemist who discovered the effects on hair when exposed to waving lotion. He formulated and developed a number of mass market products including shampoos, moisturizers, anti-agining products, makeup, and other skin care products. The first few chapters introduce the physiology and biochemistry of human tissues with an emphasis on skin and hair and outline ocular and mouth tissues as well as the keratin of the nail. Later chapters delve into the fundamentals of cosmetic product development, regulatory requirements, patents and trade secrets, surfactants, cosmetic emulsification, rheological additives, manufacturing, packaging, stability, and more.
For the past 80 years, we at the Chemical Publishing Company have prided ourselves in providing quality publications that are just as comprehensive and technical as they are educational.
