Editorial Reviews

Review

Johann Wiechers was a well-known scientist with extensive experience in the industry and field of cosmetic science. Deeply involved in solving various problems in cosmetic science, Wiechers specialized in topics such as skin delivery, skin sensory, topical formulation design, clinical trial design, skin bioengineering and biostatistics. --Review by Lecturer Corina Cernatescu, P.D Technical University Gh.Asachi Iasi, Romania

Memories of a Cosmetically Disturbed Mind by Dr. Johann Wiechers is an enjoyable read. This book provides Dr. Wiechers' unique perspective on many topics that are important and relevant for our industry.... a timeless book in its most authentic form." --Dr. Olga Dueva-Koganov, Sr. Principal Scientist, BioMaterials, Akzo Nobel Surface Chemistry LLC

I have had the pleasure of reading Johann Wiechers' 'Memories of a Cosmetically Distrubed Mind,' and I highly recommend this book to all cosmetic formulators and industry professionals. Dr. Wiechers' unique style bears out his critical but positive views about cosmetic science. He comes alive in these pages and opens our eyes to see the challenges, possibilities, and responsibilities for helping this magical profession to grow and succeed. His message is crystal clear: "Make cosmetic science into what it really is: a true, great science." A must have in your library. --I. Nagy Versteegh RM, NPF

Memories of a Cosmetically Disturbed Mind by Johann Wiechers is a truly must-read book for all who work in our cosmetic industry, whether they work for suppliers or finished goods houses as chemists, marketing/salespersons, or or are in management roles. I first met Johann many years ago and we became good friends. We shared many a dais and many a meal. His passing is a loss to all who knew him and all who should try to understand his impact on our industry. Johann wrote many columns for Cosmetics & Toiletries, but unlike me, he kept his original writings before our editors did their thing. This book is 55 of his original unedited works. They cover his thinking on just about every aspect of our business. You may agree or disagree with his thoughts, but you will be challenged as Johann will force you to think and understand the issues. After you read this book, you, like me, will want to share his wisdom knowledge with all your co-workers. --David C. Steinberg, FRAPS, Founder of Steinberg & Associates
