Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: Finally, a book discussing the merits of cosmetic skin care products based on scientific data has been published. The purpose of the various ingredients used in moisturizers, shampoo, botanicals, antioxidants, etc. is explained.
Purpose: The purpose is to make dermatologists knowledgeable about the various cosmetic products available and to make educated recommendations for patients.
Audience: The audience is dermatologists.
Features: Clear analysis of the different strategies used to treat hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, increase collagen production, xerosis, etc., is presented. The authors are careful to be noncommittal in making specific recommendations. I wish they would have mentioned their preferences and stated that this was their impression. There are some photographs in the book that do not really impart any useful information. There is a photo of a jumble of upside down moisturizing products with the caption below stating "many products contain mineral oil." I wish they would have commented whether they thought Stivectin really has any effect rather than limiting the discussion to how it is supposed to interact with the tissues. Some of the chapters are rather short, 2 pages, leaving me longing for a more in-depth coverage.
Assessment: All in all, I enjoyed the book and think that anyone with a cosmetic patient population would find reading it educational. It is quite informative compared to other books on the subject without bogging the reader down with bioengineering equations. I look forward to the next edition.
