Here’s some great and useful news to aspiring cosmetic chemists. The premiere journal of our industry has put their back issues online in a searchable database. You can see all the cosmetic science that people have been writing about since the 1940’s.
You only get complete access if you are a card carrying member of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists. I recommend you join.
For non-members, you can get access to most volumes up through 2005, I think.
