Review

“Of great value to this reviewer is that the book provides many pieces of information often difficult to find in recent books, such as the composition of reagents commonly used to identify plants and plant extracts and the details of the various types of microscopic analyses The modest cost of the book leads me to recommend it for the new breed of ‘compounding’ pharmacists, graduate students in pharmacognosy and related disciplines, and those involved in the cosmetic industry, as well as a reference source in libraries.” -Journal of Natural Products, 2001, vol. 64, no. 6 ..”.a well written text, nicely illustrated, featuring several hundred monographs of commonly used botanicals….recommended for everyone with interests in the properties and uses of botanicals and their cosmetic applications.” -Heber W. Youngken, Emeritus Dean and Professor, College of Pharmacy, University of Rhode Island “This book is recommended for everyone with interests in the properties and uses of botanicals and their cosmetic applications.” -Candice A. Shoemaker, Current Books on Gardening & Botany
