About this Book
Here, the most important classes of toxic chemicals from personal care compounds are systematically covered, from cosmetics to plastics additives to pharmaceuticals. For each substance, data on toxicity and bioaccumulation in various ecosystems are given.
This first comprehensive treatment of personal care environmental toxins is rounded off by a discussion of strategies in wastewater treatment to control and remove these substances.
