The Scientific Revolution in Skin Care by Hannah Sivak (Paperback)

"This is a fantastic book on skin and its care from the lead scientist behind the much-beloved company Skin Actives Scientific (SAS), a skin care (and actives) company renowned for its sound science, lack of smoke and mirrors, and reasonable prices. As I had hoped, this is a refreshingly down-to-earth, science-based book that is helpful in making most of skin care by: decoding ingredients, understanding a little chemistry, and choosing actives that have proven benefits. The ScientificRevolution in Skin Care is enjoyable to read in its entirety, yet for those who prefer to skip around to various topics of special interest, the chapters also are broken down into sub-sections, so readers can easily find what most applies to them. This makes the book a great reference to have on hand." "Throughout chapters, Dr. Sivak reveals several major, widely-believed skin care myths, based on misunderstanding or marketing ploys. Seeing past these myths is not only informative, but also will save most readers a lot of wasted money in the future! For instance, Dr. Sivak tells us there is no need to splurge on fancy "oxygenating" products or to pay $200+ for a stem cell cream. Also, she reminds us that "natural/organic" does not automatically equal saf; like anything, natural ingredients can be good or bad, depending on their action on skin. For those of us (myself included) guilty of paying major money for serums with "innovative delivery technology," Dr. Sivak lets us know that it's not necessary. This book offers straight-forward, no-nonsense truth, which is just what is missing in the skin care industry!" "If you want to understand what works in skincare, Dr Sivak is the real deal. Cut the marketing sleaze talk, full of promises, zoom into honesty & the how things work, many myths dispelled! I wished this book came out earlier! Dr Sivak teaches you how to save money, read ingredients, with her background (her IQ must be pretty high) and a geek. She was a scientist. Medical researcher who was blessed to be under the guidance of a nobel prize winner's specialising in bio-chemistry. With an impressive CV of being an expert in botany (plant extracts), proteins, bio-chemistry... ensuring that products work, Not harmful (no Hydroquinone or shortcuts), it's truly a marketer dream to have such a profile to market... but Skin Actives is sold with a solid science background, always backups to medical journals, no empty promises, no white washing, and she is always able to tell it like I am 5. I do not give up understanding the science because Dr Sivak really understands why and the chemistry of ingredients she put together, because she knows it, she can explain it. Unlike most times i give up understanding because I am out of my depth." "I was going to zoom into chapter 7 on pigmentation... but was pleased that she talked about Hydroquinone /arbutin prior she what works. Salicylic acid. Etc etc Is mineral oil good? Is SD alcohol good? Is it possible to have organic all natural no preservative product? Dr Sivak is outraged by pseudoscience and she teaches the reader to be discerning. I respect her honesty, integrity as it is rare in the world today, especially in skincare." "Being a scientist is different from a founder of a skincare company. I appreciate her science background and integrity. I understand her passion in her work and I do not have unreasonable expectations of her to speak like the marketing/customer service department. Despite having no science background, Dr Sivak's book is able to make simplify the skincare industry to me, how FDA work, INCI rules, why things are like so, marketing tricks, plant extracts (how using different parts of the same plant can have different effects) etc, products with little or no actives out there, being on the inside, she sees it all and the most rare part is she shares it. I have read bits here there, from not so reliable sources. So glad to read it all in one source from a reliable sources."
