In his foreword Mumford makes the statement: "Perhaps the day will come when the Dermatological Clinics will enhance their efficiency by accepting the constant help of the physical chemist. `Modern Cosmeticology' points the way."

In this second edition written for the manufacturing cosmeticologist Harry takes up at some length the pertinent "histology of the skin," "emulsions," ``cleansing creams and lotions," "acid creams," "face packs," "vanishing creams," "powder creams," "skin nutrition, skin foods," "astringent lotions," "lip sticks," "face powders," "sunburn preparations," "deodorants and depilatories," "allergy and dermatitis," "antioxidants," "bath preparations," "hand creams," "hair preparations," "manicure preparations," "acne preparations," ``chemical examination of cosmetic and toilet preparations" and other subjects. The author is a chemist of some note and writes for the British Journal of Dermatology; he reviews a surprising amount of literature, French, German and American as well as English in connection with the discussion of his subject.
