Special Issue "Antipollution Cosmetics: Trends, Test and Issues"
A special issue of Cosmetics (ISSN 2079-9284).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 December 2017)
Antipollution cosmetics are gaining momentum in the cosmetic world. China is leading the way in this field. Cosmetic ingredient manufacturers have been developing new antiotidants, film-formers, skin rejuvenating excipients, innovative technologies, etc. at rapid speeds. However, the key issues remain un-addressed, such as universal antipollution test methods to assess efficacy and safety of products, global regulatory requirements and development cost, which consumers need to pay. Additionally, this important challenge also creates opportunities for businesses, as well as research institutes. Academia-industry collaborations are needed for this emerging field.
