Author of over a hundred articles and papers on various aspects of the Cosmetic and Toiletry industry and numerous book chapters, Anthony is also a frequent lecturer on his favourite topic of botanicals/ medicinal plants and has presented over 80 papers at conferences all over the world. He was a regular organiser of the conference programme for PCIA (Personal Care Ingredients Asia) and the honorary organiser for the SCS Spring Symposium 13-15th May 2007 "the 100% Natural Conference" at Staverton Park, Northants.
The Handbook of Formulating Natural Cosmetics and the Handbook of Natural Ingredients together now make up the revised Formulating Natural Cosmetics that was originally published by Allured. It is double the size of the original work and this explains the need to publish it in two volumes. These two volumes are suited to the creators of natural products be they marketing or technical. The price of the original volume was about £86, the price of both the new volumes together is £50. I am pleased that the size has doubled but the price has dropped.
The Handbook of Cosmetic Ingredients is the last of the trilogy and aimed at the safety assessor or compliance officer. In addition to an overview of the material it also has the toxicological data. It replaces the originally published eBook but despite numerous attempts with format sizes it will not fit into a single volume at 1,200 or so pages.
It had been my intention (as shown on LinkedIn) to publish the mass of data that I had assembled and created over the course of 45 years in the personal care industry. The last and final step, probably the most difficult, will be to assemble the hundred plus published papers from the year 1979 onwards and pull them into one volume, together with the lectures and proceedings from eighty or so conferences.
Finally, to make available the software programme that I have been writing for the last twenty years to assess a cosmetic formulation and show the legal status around the world.
