The Cosmetic Contact Allergens Special Issue is a collection of several authoritative papers that draws upon the collective expertise of undisputed leaders in the fields of contact hypersensitivity, immunity, immunotoxicology, and in vitro and in silico methods. The Special Issue explores the immunological and biological mechanisms underlying chemical allergen-induced contact allergy and the opportunity to identify their allergenic potentials based on non-animal testing, with the ultimate aim of making contact allergy to cosmetics history. The clinical relevance of cosmetic allergens is critically discussed and collectively, this Special Issue links the health effects of cosmetic allergens, immune dysfunction, and toxicology.
