The cosmetic and personal care industry encompasses a diversity of products including: body and face lotions, creams, and salves; deodorants and antiperspirants; sunscreens and tanning aids; makeup preparations (face powder, lipstick, mascara, eye shadow, eye liner); nail products; hair preparations (shampoos, conditioners, coloring rinses and dyes, waving solutions); bath preparations and soaps; shaving preparations; oral care products; and fragrances.
Choosing optimal ingredients in the overall process of marketing and developing new and improved products is a monumental task. This reference coalesces the necessary research process into a single source and expedites material selection for the user by cross referencing trade name products by chemical composition, function, CAS number and EINECS number.

Trade Name Reference contains alphabetical entries of trade name cosmetic/personal care additives with extensive profiles of each product listed. The product descriptions include: its manufacturer, chemical
description/composition, CAS, and EINECS identifying numbers, general properties, applications and functions, toxicology, compliance and regulatory information as provided by the manufacturer and other sources.
Part II-Chemical Component Cross-Reference
Chemical Component Cross-Reference contains approximately 7300 cosmetic and personal care chemicals/materials that are either contained in the trade name products profiled in Part I or are generic chemicals used as cosmetic/personal care additive ingredients. Each entry includes, wherever possible, its synonyms, CAS number, EINECS/ELINCS number, FEMA number, UN/DOT number, molecular and empirical formulas, chemical properties, functions and applications, toxicology, precautions, use levels, regulatory information, and manufacturers and distributors of the chemical. All chemical/material synonyms are cross-referenced back to the main entry. The chemical monograph entries also contain a listing of the trade name products that are either equivalent to the chemical entry or contain this chemical as one of its ingredients.
Part III-Functional/Application Index
Functional/Application Index is a powerful tool for locating the trade names and chemicals based on their function and application. By searching for key functional words related to cosmetic/personal care additives such as anticaking agents, binders, colorants, disintegrants, emulsifiers, encapsulants, fillers, fragrances, pearlescents, in specific application areas such as makeup, mouthwash, skin lotions, shampoos, sunscreens, etc., the user is directed to the trade names and/or chemicals that have that specific functional/application attribute.
Part IV-Manufacturers Directory
Manufacturers Directory contains detailed contact information for the more than 3100 worldwide manufacturers and their branches for the trade name products and chemical components that are referenced in this handbook. Wherever possible, telephone, telefax, toll-free numbers, e-mail and internet addresses, and complete mailing addresses are included for each manufacturer.
CAS Number Index contains CAS number entries followed by a listing of their trade name product and chemical equivalents in alphabetical order. The chemical name is in boldfaced type.
EINECS/ELINCS Number Index contains EINECS/ELINCS number entries followed by a listing of their trade name product and generic chemical equivalents in alphabetical order. The chemical name is in boldfaced type.
FEMA Number Index orders chemicals contained in this reference by these numbers (assigned by the Flavor and Extract Manufacturers Association).
Glossary contains definitions of terminology associated with cosmetic additives and their application areas.
