    Let’s see, on my deck right now I have: 

    Formulations by Tharwat F Tadros 
    Multifunctional Cosmetics ed by Randy Schueller and Perry Romanowski

    I’ve been consulting both as I work on some client formula ideas. I have more on my ‘library’ shelf, but those two are the ones that wind up living on my desk for some reason.

    “Conditioning Agents for Hair and Skin” I liked this book so much that i studied the whole book in one day. I didn’t want to stop reading it😀.

    Milady’s Skin Care and Cosmetic Ingredients Dictionary by M. Varinia Michalun and Natalia Michalun. 

    It’s used in esthetician/beauty therapist courses. It is a good book for beginners looking for a foundation in how and why products work on the skin, explains jargon and terminology, has a substantial dictionary of ingredients and what they do.
