Article by: Perry Romanowski

We’ve been getting a number of questions about cosmetic science over the years and it occurs to us that there is enough interest that we should write a book (or maybe a series of books). This book will focus on topics that you have indicated you are most interested in (and also things that we think you need to know about cosmetic science and formulating).

We’re in the early, early phases of the project but before we get too far along into the writing, I thought it would be helpful to show you a mind map of the content of the book and to get your input on anything we might be missing.

So here’s what you do.

1. Click on the picture below and take a look at the contents of the book.

2. Leave a comment below and let us know if there is some critical topic we are missing.

I’m really looking forward to this new project and I’ll keep you posted on how it is going. While there are some great books on the subject of cosmetic science, I think there is room for a new one that provides more practical formulating and career information and advice.

Let us know what you think!

    Hi Perry,
    You have no idea how much I wish I had this book ( I did skim through Beginners Guide) when I started in the cosmetic industry. I struggled with many of these topics (and it would be a lie if I said I don’t anymore!) but two of the main things that stuck in my head was the chemistry of emulsions and the chemistry of surfactants. These topics are never discussed in any chemistry course and I feel they make a huge impact in understanding cosmetic chemistry.

      Thanks for the feedback Sherry! We’ll be sure to include more of that in the upcoming book series.
