Editorial Reviews


`Si raccomanda il volume per la sua grande utilità.'
(We recommend this volume for its extreme usefulness)
La Rivista Italiana delle Sostanze Grasse, 7-8 (2000)
`It should prove invaluable to the student while providing interesting background and stimulating ideas to the experienced.'
John Woodruff in Manufacturing Chemist
`The 10th edition of Poucher's Perfumes, Cosmetics and Soaps is timely and most welcome as the last edition was published in 1993. Since then, dramatic developments in cosmetics, perfumery and toiletries industries and introduction of new legislation and regulations affecting the development, production and marketing of products have necessitated their coverage in a single book. This book was, it seems, intended to serve this very purpose and its does so. I, therefore, strongly recommend the 10th edition to cosmetic chemists, specialists, students, lecturers and researchers working in industry, government, universities, associated institutions and librarians.'
Prof.Dr. K. Hüsnü Can Baser, Acta Pharmaceutica Turcica, XLII:2-3 (2000)

Format: Hardcover
A very comprehensive book about perfume, soap and cosmetic industry. Decribes in great details about the industry historically. The book also provides information about where the flow, tendency and future of the perfume is going.
A must buy for perfumers, soap makers, and general cosmetic manufacturers.
