Reviews

"...a welcome addition to the field as it fills a significant vacuum in the area of cosmetic applications of polymer carriers.... ...a very useful 90-page compendium of all the polymers and thickeners used in the field with detailed structure and properties is the piece de resistance. Highly recommended. "

"...an indispensable work tool."
