The objective of this monograph is to review the methods of characterization and analysis of polymers used in cosmetic products. The book is not designed to provide an exhaustive, up-to-date analysis of the field, but rather to give cosmetic researchers a basic overview of the types of analysis carried out for new and established products. Each method is illustrated with one or two examples of analysis in order to demonstrate the basic capabilities of each technique.
