Author: Howard I. Maibach, MD
A fully revised publication covering skin physiology, pharmacology and toxicology with cosmetic chemistry.
Cosmetic dermatologists want to understand the physiology of skin—notably skin conditions they consider problematic and in need of treatment—whereas product developers would like to create a cosmetic product that treats this problematic skin in order to change its appearance. They are therefore all starting with the same problem in order to get effective, though respectively different, treatments.
A Dermatological View: From Physiology to Therapy is designed to satisfy both sides of the problematic skin equation. Written in partnership with numerous colleagues, Dr. Howard I. Maibach’s aim is ever toward medical advancement and sustained product development in his areas of primary clinical specialty and research-based interest, including dermatopharmacology, allergic contact dermatitis, and dermatotoxicology and pathology. The information in A Dermatological View is purposed to both illuminate and to instruct. Topics include:
Howard I. Maibach, MD, is professor of dermatology at the University of California (San Francisco) School of Medicine. His laboratory has been interested in and has published extensively on dermatopharmacology and dermatotoxicology.
Contributing authors include:
"A Dermatological View provides an in-depth review of the physiological causes of many common skin disorders, diseases and conditions. This book is immensely thorough, covering not only cosmetic treatments and products that give clinical results, but also skin physiology and how it relates to the efficacy of those treatments. Although it may seem that this book is solely geared towards dermatologists, it is also a valuable resource for estheticians involved in the medical field and those who might be interested in taking the skin care services they offer down a more clinical path."

"This volume collects 48 columns published under the heading "A dermatological view" in Cosmetics & toiletries magazine. The articles are arranged according to normal skin, damaged skin, and troubled skin, but are a mix of physiology-based, evaluation-based, results-driven, and therapy-based literature reviews. Maibach (U. of California, San Francisco) describes ethnic variations in skin properties, wound healing models, methods to quantify the protein collected by tape stripping, sensitive skin syndrome, fragrance allergen patch testing, keratolytic treatments for acne, and challenges to sunscreen efficacy."

"Your goal is to avoid creating a product that might lead to problematic skin, and this book is the first step in achieving it.”
