Taylor & Francis, Nov 9, 2005 - Medical - 560 pages
The previous edition of Dry Skin and Moisturizers: Chemistry and Function was the first book devoted to all aspects of moisturizers, a subject often given short shrift in dermatology texts. It quickly became a standard reference. In the past five years, there has been an explosion of new information relating to the nature of dry skin and its treatment. With more than 350 scientific papers on dry skin published in the last five years, the advances in the field have been nothing short of stunning. Completely revised and updated, this second edition presents the most recent research findings and contains highly relevant information for future possibilities to scientifically tailor efficient products for dry skin.
The book focuses on constituents in moisturizing creams and pharmaceutical preparations and their effects on dry skin disorders. It covers regulatory and safety issues and includes pertinent information from neighboring research areas. With contributions from internationally recognized, world-class scientists, the book comprehensively summarizes current knowledge from basic science to clinical practice. The combination of detailed information about the skin with in depth coverage of moisturizers makes this book a one of a kind resource.
