Vitamin A Skin Science is the combined knowledge of two dedicated and experienced medical practitioners whose firm belief in the beneficial properties of Vitamin A and other anti-oxidants for the skin has led them to share this vital information with the world. It is the result of many years of intensive research in both the laboratory and private practice. The book lays out, in detail, how these humble, but critical substances can repair the skin, strengthen it and boost its immunity to disease.
