Title: Methods and compositions for improved fragrancing of a surface

Applicant/Assignee: THE PROCTER & GAMBLE COMPANY

Application No.: 10/428246   Filing Date: 02/May/2003

Abstract:

The invention provides a method for improving release, on a surface, of a fragrance from an entrapment structure of at least one fragrance oil and at least one entrapment material. The method destabilizes the entrapment structure by providing at least one trigger molecule which preferentially associates with the entrapment material

and/or at least one release agent which at least partially disrupts the entrapment structure. The invention also provides a composition for improving release of a fragrance from a surface. The composition comprises at least one fragrance oil

at least one entrapment material, the at least one fragrance oil and the at least one entrapment material being capable, in use, of forming an entrapment structure on the surface. The composition also comprises at least one destabilizing material, which permits formation of the entrapment structure on the surface but which destabilizing material can, in use, destabilize the entrapment structure by providing at least one trigger molecule which preferentially associates with the entrapment material

and/or at least one release agent which partially disrupts the entrapment structure

and at least one compatible solvent which doesn't interfere with the formation of the entrapment structure on the surface. The present methods and compositions can improve fragrance perception, by overcoming the differences in fragrance perception that result from different surface, for example, skin, hydration levels and/or different surface types.

Title: COSMETIC AND COSMECEUTICAL COMPOSITIONS FOR RESTORATION OF SKIN BARRIER FUNCTION

Applicant/Assignee: GENEPHARM, INC

Application No.: 11/275994   Filing Date: 08/Feb/2006

Abstract:

Compositions, kits and methods are provided for restoring skin barrier function to skin exposed to environmental elements and/or in a pathological condition. In general, divalent cations such as calcium ions and/or magnesium ions are included in a physiologically acceptable medium. In some embodiments, divalent cations are balanced with monovalent cations such as sodium and potassium ions at appropriate ratios in order to maintain the homeostasis of skin barrier. The compositions, kits and methods can be used as cosmetics, cosmeceuticals or pharmaceuticals for improving skin condition, and preventing or treating dermatological diseases and skin disorders.

Title: Foaming cleansing preparation and system comprising coated acid and base particles

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/201566   Filing Date: 10/Aug/2005

Abstract:

A foaming cleansing preparation and system that produce a high quality, self-sustaining foam immediately upon exposure to water without physical agitation or rubbing is provided. The inventive cleansing preparation is made up of at least one dry acid, at least one dry base, and at least one liquid film-forming cleansing agent. When the cleansing preparation is exposed to water, the acid(s) and the base(s) will react to form a gas and the cleansing agent(s) will form a liquid film, and the gas and the liquid film will then interact to form or generate a foam. The inventive cleansing system is made up of a plurality of delivery particles, with each such delivery particle containing one or more components of the inventive cleansing preparation.

Title: Skin/hair treatment technique

Applicant/Assignee: PROVENTURE (FAR EAST) LIMITED

Application No.: 10/879804   Filing Date: 29/Jun/2004

Abstract:

A method and system of conditioning human skin and hair using a hand-held skin/hair conditioner having interchangeable interface conductors that are contoured to enhance electrical conductivity between the conditioner and a variety of body areas. Each of the interchangeable interface conductors are preferably formed to maximize surface area contact with a variety of body surfaces such as scalp/hair, body skin, and facial skin. In a preferred embodiment, the skin/hair conditioner is formed to fit comfortably and controllably in a user's grasp while providing maximum contact with the selected body surface. The skin/hair conditioner includes an audio signal generator and a vibration mechanism to alert a user of a change in status of the conditioner.

The interface conductors may be (1) smoothly rounded, (2) include teeth, (3) spherical or hemispherical (4) include multiple rounded nodules. The housings for the conditioner may be (1) elongated and somewhat flattened, (2) of elongated cylindrical shape, or (3) of a compact configuration similar to a door knob. The interface conductors and conditioning system may have a releasable latch, and spring arrangements for ejecting the interface conductor when the latch is released.

Title: Optically activated particles for use in cosmetic compositions

Applicant/Assignee: LIPO CHEMICALS, INC

Application No.: 10/243060   Filing Date: 13/Sep/2002

Abstract:

Optically activated particles for use in cosmetic and pharmaceutical compositions are disclosed. The optically activated particles include a solid substrate having a fluorescent compound fixed thereto, and coated or encapsulated with a transparent or translucent coating of crosslinked polyvinyl alcohol. The optically activated particles absorb light at a UV wavelength and emit visible light at longer wavelengths, and are able to both absorb and scatter light in a diffuse manner in order to reduce the visual perception of skin imperfections, including cellulite, wrinkles, shadows, skin discolorations, blotchiness, and mild scars.

Title: Natural sunlight photostable composition

Applicant/Assignee: TANNING RESEARCH LABORATORIES, INC

Application No.: 11/052397   Filing Date: 07/Feb/2005

Abstract:

The present invention relates to photostable compositions that provide protection from ultraviolet radiation ("UVR"). The invention particularly relates to the sunscreens avobenzone, octocrylene and oxybenzone, forming a triplet combination. Compositions of the present invention are free of diesters or polyesters of naphthalene dicarboxylic acid and also are substantially free of substantial amounts of other sunscreens and substantial amounts of optimizing agents. Sunscreens of the invention may be essentially free of, or free of, lower monohydric alcohol and/or acrylates/C12-22 alkylmethacrylate copolymer in an effective non-pilling amount used to gel a C1 -C4 alcohol. The triplet combination surprisingly provides and substantially maintains the initial SPF value of the sunscreen composition throughout the period of UVR exposure.

Compositions of the invention are photostable such that each of sunscreen active in the triplet combination does not appreciably photodegrade. The present invention accurately communicates the amount of UVR photoprotection actually provided in natural sunlight.

Title: Splash guard

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/262872   Filing Date: 31/Oct/2005

Abstract:

A crescent-shaped splash guard, encircling the part of the head to be washed, protects the eyes, ears and nose from soap and other solutions. It is placed centrally on the forehead above the eyes. Two opposing side portions extend from the center to above and behind the ears. The side portions form upper and lower edges providing a seal against the head. The side portions form troughs about the periphery, directing water and hair washing solutions to the side and back, and preventing solutions from dripping into the eyes, nose and ears. A handgrip in the splash guard's center provides a grip for a "hairwasher." Holding the handgrip prevents the splash guard from shifting. The "hairwasher" applies pressure to the splash guard via the handgrip to ensure that all hair solutions are guided through the troughs and discharged away from the eyes, nose and ears.
