This book is a revised version of Louis Appell's well-known work Cosmetics, Fragrances and Flavors, first published in 1982. An index has now been added for greater ease of reference.
The book deals with the many aspects of the formulation of cosmetics, perfumes and flavours, and discusses their chemistry and manufacturing procedures.
Chapter I, the main part of the book, is concerned with the formulation of cosmetics and toiletries of every description. The chapter contains over 200 ingredient label declarations of leading cosmetics, and more than 250 formulations are suggested for the preparation of similar products.
Chapter II deals with the physical aspects of odour, summing up the author's findings.
Chapter Ill discusses the creation of perfumes according to the author's principle of olfactory equilibrium and equivalent weights. The systematically arranged formulas include 50 French-style perfumes, 30 high-class colognes, 75 floral perfumes, 130 cosmetic perfumes, some imitation essential oils, specialty perfume bases and perfumes for cosmetics and soaps.
Chapter IV discusses the formulation of flavours;
Chapter V deals with the stability of aromatic chemicals and essential oils in various cosmetic media.
Chapters VI and VII are devoted to syntheses of specific aromatic chemicals.
"This concise yet comprehensive formulary contains practical suggestions for the successful formulation of a wide range of cosmetics, toiletries, perfumes and flavours and will be invaluable to formulating chemists in all branches of the personal-care industry."
