Bookshelf: A Consumers Dictionary of Cosmetic Ingredients

Care about what's in  your cosmetics, and want specific answers?  Then this book is a must have.

Title: A Consumers Dictionary of Cosmetic Ingredients, 7th edition

Author: Ruth Winter, M.S.

Published: October 20, 2009

About the Book: Everything you need to know about the safety and efficacy of cosmetics and cosmeceuticals. The 7th edition - updated and expanded - gives you the facts to protect yourself from possible irritants, confusing chemical names, and exaggerated claims of additives, and includes 800 new ingredients.

Thoughts (Andrea):  I actually have the 6th edition of this book, as it was a requirement for a course I took in beauty school years ago.  I've dog-eared mine and have sticky notes covering the inside.  I reach for it on a regular basis, and although much of the information in it can be found online, it's nice to have a resource that contains everything in one place.  It's also unbiased, just very factual, which I like.  It's a great book to quickly gather some info on specific ingredients, then you can decide if you want to pursue researching an ingredient a little further with some googling.  Winter also notes if an ingredient has made it onto the Canadian Hotlist.

Verdict: ❤❤❤
