Everything you need to know about the safety and efficacy of cosmetics and cosmeceuticals. Is it a cosmetic? A drug? A nutrient? It s becoming more and more difficult to tell the difference with the cosmetic companies combining the three.

We have been selling books online for nearly 20 years, so buy with confidence. Every order is shipped the same day or the next day. This is a used book in good condition and may show some signs of use or wear.
I have one or two other books of evaluating the safety of cosmetic ingredients, but this is the one that I always check.
I buy the new edition whenever one comes out. It's important to stay on top of this stuff. Plenty of times, I've found toxic ingredients in products on the shelves of the organic grocery stores where I shop, even product lines that claim some sort of organic status.
