Cosmetic Chemistry Text Book

Cosmetic Chemistry for the skin treatment therapist is the much-anticipated new book from international skin treatment expert, Florence Barrett-Hill.

Cosmetic chemistry is not another dictionary of cosmetic ingredients, but rather an informative look at understanding the subject of cosmetic chemistry from a Clinical Aesthetician and beauty therapist’s viewpoint.

In addition to explaining the basics of cosmetic formulations in the therapists terms, Florence shares how to read and understand product labels and evaluate likely product performance and contraindications. From the knowledge gained, the therapist can evaluate a product for themselves rather than being infl uenced by marketing hype.

In her new book, Florence explores the linking skin structure and function to ingredient choice in order to achieve better treatment results and client satisfaction. She does this by approaching the major skin conditions that therapists see on a daily basis and applying the knowledge of what is happening to the skin’s cells to the types of ingredients that will provide best therapeutic effect. This will help therapists provide more informed decisions about treatment strategies and advice regarding client home care options.

“True cosmetic chemistry concerns itself not only with what is in our skin care and cosmetic products, but what chemical occurrences are happening in and around the various cells within the skin and how the chemicals in the cosmetics interact with the skins own chemistry”
