Reviews

A panel of experts come together in this excellent book to address chemistry and molecular aspects of how herbs work on skin and the compounds in them that are responsible. The bulk of the text contains very comprehensive monographs on 70 popular herbs used for skincare that provide a detailed look at their properties and toxicity. All the newest ingredients, such as argan oil (Argania spinosa) are included ...Photos and chemical diagrams accompany each entry. This is all presented in an accessible format and very readible style.
