Meyer Rosen has broken new ground and redefined the entire Beauty category in the 9th edition of Harry's Cosmeticology. Harry's provides sound science through the eyes of an impressive team of over 150 global experts and thought leaders of dermatology and the cosmetic industry.

The “Theories of Aging” sections alone, provides many thought-provoking ideas about the mechanisms of aging. This information could lead to a variety of research and development pathways.  These can be further explored, researched and optimized, resulting in the launch of clinically validated, anti-aging preparations in every category of the current market place. This is, because, the subjects covered in Harrys, is extraordinary in the breadth and depth of its content. 

Alternatively, it could generate a variety of new, unanticipated categories. The new wave of educated consumers, who crave interactive beauty knowledge and experience- which is both inspiring and motivating- would also welcome this opportunity.

Harry's reveals the truth that cosmetic companies and beauty magazines have yet to reveal. It is fun, fascinating and a must- read for anyone who puts anything on their face, hair, or other areas where cosmetics and personal care products are applied.


The publisher has creatively launched this 3 volume encyclopedic text in hard copy, eBook, and website www.harryscosmeticology.com for reader ease and convenience.
