Abstract

Since the advent of cosmetics between thirty and forty thousand years ago their preparation, uses end effects have been a matter of frequent and nearly constant discussion and experimentation. In the words of Lillian H. Foster (1) quoted from "The American Perfumer": "As it (cosmetics) serves as a worthy commodity of commerce and as an adjunct to beauty, a double function combining the useful and the ornamental, should not the make-up box receive its due and be accorded recognition as a valued member of society?"
This particular study was formulated to investigate the factors which comprise cosmetic dermatology, from the viewpoint of pharmacology, physiology and chemistry.
