Applicant/Assignee: SPLASH GUARD, LLC

Application No.: 12/091655   Filing Date: 30/Oct/2006

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.

Abstract:The inventors of the present invention have surprisingly found out that mixing an additional component prior to application which is preferably an emulsion to already existing two or more phase composition comprising an oil phase and a water phase wherein two or more phases are optically separated at zero shear rate and becomes homogeneous upon shaking and returns again to optically separated two or more phases upon release of agitation and mixes to a homogeneous composition when all phases are mixed improves hair shine, elasticity, manageability and combability and adds volume and body when especially a compound described below is included into the composition. It should be noted that after mixing all phase the composition is used immediately or in a short period of time so that the formed composition by mixing all phases does not have to have long term stability. It is enough when it is homogeneous during application onto hair. Accordingly, the object of the present invention is a multiphase composition for hair comprising a-5 to 30%, by weight oil phase, calculated to total composition, comprising at least one volatile oil, b-50 to 75%, by weight, aqueous phase, calculated to total composition, and c-5 to 45% by weight calculated to total composition an additional composition preferably an emulsion comprising at least one oil and at least one emulsifier in an aqueous medium, wherein a compound selected from compounds according to general formula wherein R1 is a phenyl and R2 is H or a C1 to C4 alkyl and n is a number between 1 and 5 and compounds of dipropylene glycol dibenzoate and trimethylpentanediyl dibenzoate is included into one of the phases except aqueous phase.

Applicant/Assignee: CINQPATS

Application No.: 12/132224   Filing Date: 03/Jun/2008

Abstract:The invention proposes a precision brushing and combing device, allowing a top-quality, consistent, faultless and industrial implementation. To do this, the invention provides a geometrical bristle structure adjusted with precision distance-wise and angle-wise with respect to a reference, as well as dimension-wise, with mold implementation by wire spark erosion. In an example embodiment, the plastic-injection tool comprises at least one block assembly consisting of several steel plates, at least one row of cavities each intended to form the main portion of a bristle, machined either side of the surface separating two adjacent plates, and a closing-up element, disposed at the end of at least one row of cavities, in order to form the free end surface of the bristles. A space of calibrated thickness is made between the plates forming the main portion of the bristle and the plate or bar forming the free end surface of the bristle, so as to allow the air to escape at the time of the injection whilst avoiding leakage of plastic. An ejection mechanism is provided for extracting the device from the cavity after solidification of the plastic.

Title: Glucan Compositions

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 12/085271   Filing Date: 20/Nov/2006

Abstract:A cosmetic or pharmaceutical composition is provided comprising: a) 0.001 to less than 0.2% by weight, based on the weight of the total composition, of a scleroglucan having a mean molecular weight of 1x106 to 12x106

b) a cosmetically or pharmaceutically acceptable carrier

and, optionally, c) lactic acid, a lactate and/or pentanediol. The composition shows advantageous effects, such as moisturization of skin or mucosa, and has an antiaging and revitalizing effect on the skin. When combined with a certain bactericide as explained in claim 1, compositions containing native polysaccharides of the glucan class in general, especially of the scleroglucan as of component a), are well suitable to reduce the number of bacteria in mucosal or oral environments and minimise adhesion, while retaining a pleasant feeling on the mucosa or gingiva. Plaque thus can be efficiently prevented or removed.

Title: Method of obtaining total fixed lipids from seeds of the sapodilla family, for the preparation of cosmetics and dermatological pharmaceutical compositions

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/632960   Filing Date: 21/Jul/2004

Abstract:Procedure for the obtaining a concentrate of the total fixed lipids of the kernels of the family Sapotaceae, genus Calocarpum, Chrysophyllum and Lucuma. The kernels (seeds removed of the endocarp), are squeezed by means of mechanical techniques that use pressure and heat, without using extractive liquids, getting a concentrate of lipidic juices (virgin) in a dry way and with their characteristic aroma. This concentrate of total fixed lipids can be fractioned in its main constituents by means of a process that consist of the emulsification of the lipids, followed by centrifugation or sedimentation, giving place to the stratification of the main constituents and their consequent separations. The main constituent consist of oils, of phospholipids and of residues glucosidic triterpenes plus of sterols fractions. These fraction or as a whole concentrate are used to prepare cosmetics and pharmaceutical compositions of topical application, to act in the skin like anti-seborrheic, healing, promoter of delicate defoliation and as invigorated epithelia regeneration agents, as cutaneous anti-wrinkle agent and as adjuvant in the development of the hair.

Title: Organic silicic acids complex for therapeutic and cosmetic applications

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/912220   Filing Date: 20/Apr/2006

Abstract:This invention describes materials containing organic silica, used in cosmetic for external uses (gel, cream or lotion) or for internal uses (microbeads/beads, tablets or solutions). These materials are vegetable extracts such as bamboo or algae which constitute richest sources in organic silica (more soluble and assimilable). After extraction in a basic medium, the organic silica extract can form a stable complex at acidic pH in presence of stabilizers such as gelatin, collagen, polyethylene glycol and/or chitosan, etc. These complexes can be used for cosmetic applications in gel, lotion and cream or as a matrix in order to immobilize various bioactive molecules. For internal uses, the soluble form of monomeric or oligomeric silicic acid is necessary to preserve its assimilability. In this context, the addition of stabilizers (gelatin and/or collagen) or the functionalization of silicic acid is possible to improve its solubility and biodisponibility.
