SCC monographs currently available for purchase include:
- Silicones in Hair Care ($40): The use of silicone materials in hair care and skin care has been known in the art for more than 50 years. Skin care formulations incorporating dimethicone polymers premiered in the marketplace slightly earlier than hair care products.
- Permanent Hair Dyes ($25): Although hair dyeing has been used as a cosmetic treatment throughout history, the process as we know it today stems from the discoveries in the 19th Century that hydrogen peroxide bleaches the natural color of hair and oxidizes chemicals such as aromatic amines on hair to impart dark colors.
- Antiperspirants and Deodorants ($40): The intent of this monograph is two-fold. First to provide the reader not familiar with antiperspirants and deodorants with basic information; and secondly, to provide readers experienced in the field with specific detailed information relevant to many aspects of antiperspirant and deodorant technology.
- Nail Lacquer Technology ($35): Nail lacquers and related products represent a significant dollar value to the cosmetics industry. Despite the relative ubiquity of nail products, formulation has been a highly specialized discipline within cosmetic science.
- Lipstick Technology ($25): The use of colorants to enhance the appearance of the lips dates back to antiquity. Paintings and archaeological excavations from early Egyptian, Babylonian and Sumerian civilizations confirm that women in these early societies painted their lips with mixtures of hematite and red ochre in vegetable oil or animal fat.
- Colorants Used in the Cosmetic Industry ($25): The purpose of this work is to give the reader a general idea and overview of the basic concepts and principles of color usage in the cosmetics industry.
