Rieger, together with an international team of experts in different fields, provides 37 chapters that discuss some of the uncertainties in cosmetic formulation and provide sufficient background so that readers can draw their own conclusions about some of the dogmas that have persisted in the industry for years. Topics include the substrates (skin, hair, nails, ocular tissue, and the mouth and oral care); formulation approaches and requirements (fundamentals of product development, regulatory requirements, and intellectual property issues); common ingredients and processes; formulation and performance; and production.
