Editorial Reviews

Review

McMullen, a scientist who teaches biochemistry at Fairleigh Dickinson U. and has experience in the personal care industry, surveys the information available on antioxidants in personal care products for the skin, for beginning and experienced researchers, formulators, clinicians, and academics. He explains the structure and function of the skin, free radicals and how they damage biological systems, the skin's endogenous antioxidant network, the effects of solar radiation on the skin, lipid peroxidation and free radicals and their measurement, antioxidant assays, electron spin resonance, treatment of the skin with antioxidants and their efficacy, and antioxidants used in formulations, their physical/chemical properties, and references to analytical and efficacy studies that substantiate their performance and effectiveness. --Eithne O'Leyne Annotation © Book News Inc., Portland, OR,

This book by Roger McMullen explains how the ingredients in skincare products work. It gives excellent coverage to the structure and function of skin and oxidation and the problems that occur when the two meet. The primary focus is on the benefits of antioxidants, such as flavonoids from herbs, fruit, and vegetables. Of particular note are ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba), green tea (Camellia sinensis), turmeric (Curcuma longa), and even milk thistle (Silybum marianum). It includes the latest research and trends for antioxidant products. McMullen is a pharmaceutical professor and senior scientist at Ashland Specialty Ingredients. --Kathi Keville, AHA Editor, American Herbal Association
