This is the second volume in the series Cosmetic Science. The first volume was published in 1978 and was also edited by Breuer. This volume is considerably smaller, consisting of five, rather than seven, contributions by authors well qualified to discuss the subjects of processing technology of emulsions and suspensions, processes in olfactory reception, psychophysics and cosmetic science, and the physiology of hair growth.
Each contribution is thorough. The exhaustive articles are well illustrated, where necessary, with charts, graphs, sketches, and black-and-white photographs. They are abundantly referenced alphabetically by author. The editor has been successful in creating a reasonably uniform presentation of material from five independent sources. The extensive outline of each topic that appears in the table of contents and matches the text deserves special commendation.
In the preface the editor repeats that subjects have been selected for their "interest to scientists, engineers, technologists and medical practitioners" (emphasis added).
