Title: Fragrance delivery system for surface cleaners and conditioners

Applicant/Assignee: FIRMENICH SA

Application No.: 11/408179   Filing Date: 21/Apr/2006

Abstract:

We claim a fragrance delivery system consisting of a mixture of various polymers oligomers and stabilizers capable of forming a surfactant complex gel dispersion when combined with a cleansing surfactant base and yielding high levels of fragrance deposition onto the skin, hair or other surface such as a textile, from a cleansing or softening consumer product comprising a micelle forming surfactant. The internal phase or dispersible phase of this surfactant complex gel dispersion (GLPPD) is made of a mixture of various immiscible polymers, oligomers and stabilizers forming a complex gel with the surfactant platform and whose ratio and composition are selected to dissolve preferentially a wide range of fragrance raw materials.

The selection criteria are, first, that the fragrance should present a higher fragrance partitioning ratio into the surfactant complex gel phase than into the free micelles of the surfactant, second, that the surfactant complex gel should not be further solubilized by the free micelles, and third, that the polymer mixture selected should complex with the surfactant system. The external or dispersing phase of the GLPPD is made of a single cationic polymer or a mixture of cationic polymers that have been hydrated and associated with the surfactant to form a complex gel structure that cannot be further solubilized by the free micelles.

Various suitable attachments include applicator attachments having abrasive surfaces, oxygenating attachments having pores through which oxygen may travel, brush attachments for cleaning and polishing, thermal attachments for heating and cooling, and light radiating attachments. The motion generator may move the attachments by vibrating, spinning, oscillating, or propagating sonic waves through the head portions. Thus, attachments may be attached and removed from the head portions to treating skin and/or body parts by abrasion, cleaning, polishing, lighting, or oxygenation.

Moreover, during treatment abrasive composition, cleaning solution, and/or polishing solution may be applied to the skin and/or body part.

Abstract:

The invention includes a method of using a cap containing an internal thread form matching an external thread form on a flexible throat for a collapsible tube enclosing at least one contained product. Twisting the cap engages the internal thread form and the external thread form. These collectively urge the cap and the flexible throat to seal the contained product into the collapsible tube. Deforming the flexible throat through squeezing the collapsible tube dispenses essentially all the product. The collapsible tube may preferably include an external thread form on a flexible throat coupled to a flexible shoulder. The external thread form mates to a cap with an internal thread form urging the flexible throat to seal against the cap when the cap is twisted onto the flexible throat. The flexible throat and flexible shoulder flatten to dispense essentially all of the product.

Abstract:

A method is provided to quantify and/or qualify psychological and physiological components of stress in mammals, in which a stimulus can be applied to the test subject's environment during the test. The method involves the steps of measuring one or more physiological and/or psychological characteristics before and after the administration of a stimulus to a test subject. The stimulus may consist of any product, task, aroma or the like that elicits a stress- related response upon administration. By analyzing the resulting measurements, and optionally comparing physiological and psychological characteristics where both are measured, an overall level of stress may be determined. The method of stress measurement may further be used in product development and/or testing.

Abstract:

A two step method to increase the thickness of human hair in which in Step I, a high pH priming lotion is applied to pre-treat the hair to increase its pH, create an anionic charge and therefore loosen and lift the cuticle layers of the hair. In Step II, an acidic thickening composition is applied on top of the Step I composition to deliver polymers and conditioning ingredients to the hair's polypeptide molecule sites. The Step II components have cationic sites that chemically bond to anionic groups in the hair, making them substantive to the hair wherein they deposit under and around the crevices of the cuticles. The low pH of Step II tightly closes the cuticles, sealing the substantive ingredients to the surface of the hair, providing the hair with increased diameter and long lasting thickness.

Title: Mascara composition

Applicant/Assignee: AVON PRODUCTS, INC

Application No.: 10/644321   Filing Date: 20/Aug/2003

Abstract:

Mascara compositions containing a keratin conditioning agent, alone or in combination with an emollient/moisturizing agent, provide increased resistance of eyelash hair fibers to breaking. Low viscosity mascara composition of the invention containing low concentrations of surfactant and wax are easily removable from the eyelashes. Mascara compositions of the invention reduce eyelash damage and though having low viscosity (as compared to typical prior art compositions) surprisingly provide excellent buildup, lengthening and wear.
