Until now, information on cosmetic microbiology was scattered and mostly consisted of oral tradition passed on from mentors to apprentices. Finally, here is an understandable and easy-to-read guide documenting cosmetic microbiology practices. Cosmetic Microbiology: A Practical Handbook contains technical information on sanitation and the preservation of cosmetics for microbiologists as well as for process engineers, plant managers, and workers.
The book provides the knowledge needed to create safe and usable cosmetic products. All aspects of cosmetic microbiology are covered, including testing methods, preservation, toxicology, and regulatory concerns.
