Abstract

This book should be of assistance to both the dermatologist and the cosmetic chemist to understand more fully the close relationship existing between dermatology and cosmetics. The monographs on the histology of the skin and its appendages are well written, and the accompanying photomicrographs are excellent. Its formulas include new products which have recently been introduced into cosmetic manufacturing and it explains quite clearly the purposes of the various products. In this connection, however, more detailed information of the composition and properties of the various new synthetic emulsifying, shampoo and penetrating agents should have been included. Since the physiologic effects of many of these products have not as yet been definitely determined, caution should be exercised in their use. Except for several definite technical errors, the book is clear, concise and instructive.
