Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This title covers a great range of topics including many questions that estheticians ask themselves as they become more and more qualified in their field."- Elizabeth Myron, Independent Esthetics Consultant

"I think there is a need for this book. Today's consumer is savvy but not necessarily knowledgeable. Knowing about specific ingredients is more helpful to the consumer than just being told to buy certain brand names..."

"The author has done a good job identifying questions the average consumer has. The valuable references and direct quotes from chemists, clinical researchers, and research physicians included give validity to the topics... I think there are average questions that the consumer would ask and a good point for educators in the esthetics field should be training students to answer."

"This is a great resource for a new esthetician or a seasoned skin care professional... The book includes a very well balanced set of questions. We get many questions concerning the "other" types of skin care lines. Why are they so different? Why is this one better than that one? This book addresses these types of questions..."
