A Consumer's Dictionary of Cosmetic Ingredients is a useful reference containing entries to over 6,000 ingredients used in skin care, aromatherapy and cosmetic/cosmeceutical products. It describes both safe and harmful ingredients. Although the ingredient descriptions are not as thorough as I would like, the descriptions can tip you off to ingredients that you may wish to research further or use with greater caution. This is a must-have resource for those who want to ensure that the products they think are safe or all natural actually are.

Cover Description

Take the guesswork out of choosing safe and effective cosmetics and cosmeceuticals.

You wouldn't eat something without knowing what it was. Don’t you want to take the same care with what you put on your face, hair, and body? Find out what’s in your health and beauty products with Ruth Winter’s A Consumer’s Dictionary of Cosmetic Ingredients. This updated and expanded sixth edition gives you all the facts you need to protect yourself and your family from possible irritants, confusing chemical names, or exaggerated claims of beauty from gimmick additives.

Virtually every chemical found in toiletries, cosmetics, and cosmeceuticals—from body and face creams to toothpaste, hand lotion, shaving cream, shampoo, soap, perfume, and makeup—is evaluated in this book, including those ingredients marketed as being all-natural, for children, and for people of color. The alphabetical arrangement makes it easy to look up the ingredients in the products you use.

With new substances popping up in products we utilize every day—and with the continuing deregulation of the cosmetics industry—A Consumer’s Dictionary of Cosmetic Ingredients is more indispensable than ever.
