Summary

Cosmetics are unique products, as diverse as foods and drugs, but without the imposed limits of shelf-life considerations and sterile manufacturing. Furthermore, unlike foods and drugs, the cosmetic industry lacks the support of established academic programs or a significant body of publication; instead, its knowledge base has always fallen under the auspices of a small fraternity reluctant to share its insiders' information. Consequently, when Daniel Brannan compiled the original Cosmetic Microbiology, providing complete coverage on every aspects of the industry critical to the delivery of microbiologically safe products, it was exceptionally well received.

Cosmetic Microbiology provides microbiologists, as well as process engineers and plant managers, an authoritative resource in an industry where secrets are rarely shared

Now following the same accessible format of the original, Phil Geis of The Procter and Gamble Company has recruited additional microbiologists from the elite of the field to provide a fresh and updated perspective. Cosmetic Microbiology: A Practical Approach, Second Edition, provides readers with the basic microbiology needed to work in the field, as well as expanded discussions of manufacturing hygiene and preservation. It offers a contemporary global perspective on regulatory review, and includes coverage of current safety concerns for preservatives consistent with the most recent toxicological data. Like the first edition, this new edition serves the needs of professional researchers and industry workers by providing an accessible reference while also providing both those in the cosmetic as well as the pharmaceutical industry with a textbook for in-house training that improves the delivery of information essential to the development and manufacturing of safe high-quality products.
