About the Author:

Dr. Nadim Shaath received his BSc degree (Honors) in Chemistry from the University of Alexandria, Egypt, and his PhD in Organic Chemistry from the University of Minnesota. After three years as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the School of Pharmacy, Medicinal Chemistry Department at the University of Minnesota, he joined the chemistry faculty at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Purchase where he served as the Chairman of the Chemistry Department, and later joined Felton Worldwide, a flavor, fragrance and sunscreen company, as Director of Research.

Until 1990 he served as the Executive Vice President and Technical Director of Felton Worldwide where he also assumed full responsibility for the promotion of their sunscreen products. In his first year he managed to triple the sales of this Division turning the Sunarome brand into a multi-million dollar business venture that was sold later to Haarman and Reimer. In 1990, Dr. Shaath became the President and Chief Executive Officer of KATO Worldwide, Ltd., a flavor, fragrance, sunscreen and essential oil company. In 2000 he founded Alpha Research & Development, Ltd., and is currently its President. Alpha R&D, Ltd. is a research, sourcing and product development company in the fields of cosmetics, sunscreens, analytical testing, fragrances, essential oils and aromatherapy.

Dr. Shaath is a frequent speaker and moderator at many scientific meetings, and is the author of numerous articles in chemical, flavor, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, food and sunscreen journals and publications. He has represented the Cosmetic, Toiletry & Fragrance Association (CTFA) on sunscreens to the FDA, and was an expert witness on several litigations in the Cosmetic and Sunscreen Industries. He is the editor of several books on Sunscreens including Sunscreens published in 2005 by Marcel Dekker (Taylor & Francis).

Review:

Dr. Nadim Shaath's book comes at an ideal time period to provide valuable information to scientists, regulatory affairs personnel and marketers in our field.This encyclopedia is a 'must' read book. It belongs on the shelves of anyone even remotely interested in sunscreens or cosmetics. ---Ismail Walele, Research Manager: Synthesis, Croda Inc.

I applaud Dr. Shaath s latest contribution to the sunscreen industry. The international listings of permitted UV filters alone are worth the price of the book. I highly recommend that anyone involved in designing, formulating, making or selling sunscreens keep a copy of The Encyclopedia of Ultraviolet Filters within easy reach. --Craig A. Bonda, Director, R & D Personal Care, CPH Innovations (affiliate of the C. P. Hall Co.)

I find The Encyclopedia of Ultraviolet Filters to be very well written and an excellent compilation of the most valuable information. I strongly recommend that every person involved in the formulation of sunscreen products worldwide have it handy!
Ken Klein, President, Cosmetech Laboratories, Inc.

Reference books such as this are valuable tools for formulating chemists. The book is well constructed, with a very good, comprehensive discussion of the chemistry and technology of UV filters. The UV spectra are helpful, and having a quick reference to what countries each UV absorber is approved is very useful. Combined with a good worldwide regulatory picture, these monographs will be valuable reference tools. The Encyclopedia of Ultraviolet Filters will be the go to reference book for sunscreen formulators for a long time. --Timothy R. Kapsner, Senior Research Scientist, Aveda Corporation
