The data represents selections from manufacturers' descriptions made at no cost to, nor influence from, the makers or distributors of these materials. Only the most recent formulas have been included. It is believed that all of the trademarked raw materials listed are currently available, which will be of interest to readers concerned with raw material discontinuances.
The cosmetic and toiletry market is projected to increase to close to $2 billion by 1995, thus making the information in the book particularly interesting to anyone considering new products or process variations.
Each formulation in the book is identified by a description of end use. The formulations include the following as available, in the manufacturer's own words: a listing of each raw material contained; the percent by weight of each raw material; suggested formulation procedure; and the formula source, which is the company or organization that supplied the formula.
The formulations in the book are divided into twelve categories as shown below. In addition, a valuable section on Trade-Named Raw Materials is included, which lists trade names, a brief chemical description, and the supplier's name. The final section contains Suppliers' Addresses and will no doubt be a useful tool to the reader.
Section titles are listed below. Parenthetic numbers indicate the number of formulations per topic.
