Question about cosmetics
- M'lords and ladies,
Could anyone point me in the direction of research of Middle Eastern
cosmetics? I'm looking for how they were made, what was used where, and
any influences on other cultures. If you can point in the directions of
books or website I would be most grateful. I use the phrase Middle
Eastern as I am looking to cover those cultures that are generally
thought of as Middle Eastern in the society.
Thank you all in advance for your assistance.

Try that book. I think you could see if the library has it. Amazon.com
carries it. I can't swear it covers the Arab culture specifically,
although it is a history of cosmetics, so worth a further look.
