Editorial Reviews

Cosmetics & Toiletries
an excellent collaborative text [that] is worthy of a place on the desks of those involved with the scientific disciplines of antiperspirants/deodorants.
Journal of the Australian Medical Association
answers most of the questions which arise about our present knowledge of this complex and multidisciplinary subject. It should be of considerable use to cosmetic chemists and to research workers in this field and would not be out of place in medical libraries or on a dermatologist's bookshelf.
