A "Cosmetic Ingredients Dangers"-type book written by a Doctor?

I am frustrated with authors who write books that scare us out of
buying most off-the-shelf cosmetics but who back up their claims with
ambiguous references to carcinogens or cite no references at all like:
* Drop-Dead Gorgeous: Protecting Yourself from the Hidden Dangers of
* Beauty to Die for: The cosmetic consequence 
* The Safe Shopper's Bible: A Consumer's Guide to Nontoxic Household
Products, Cosmetics, and Food.

Does anyone know of such a book or article that was written by a
doctor with substantial references for the layperson?

Thank you, New (and frustrated)
