Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 10/383363   Filing Date: 07/Mar/2003

Abstract:

Optically-activated particles for use in cosmetic preparations. The optically-activated particles include a plurality of substrate particles selected from the group consisting of nylons, acrylics, polyesters, other plastic polymers, natural materials, regenerated cellulose, metals and minerals

an optical brightener chemically bonded to each of the plurality of substrate particles to form integral units in the form of optically-activated particles for diffusing light to reduce the visual perception of skin imperfections, including cellulite, shadows, skin discolorations, and wrinkles

and each of the optically-activated particles are encapsulated with a UV transparent coating to increase the diffusion light to further reduce the visual perception of the skin imperfections. The encapsulated optically-activated particles are able to absorb ultraviolet radiation and emit visible light

and the encapsulated optically-activated particles are able to both scatter and absorb light in a diffuse manner in order to reduce the visual perception of skin imperfections, including cellulite, wrinkles, shadows, and skin discolorations, when the optically-activated particles are applied to the skin surface. The encapsulated optically-activated particles are used in the making of cosmetic preparations such as skin lotions, creams, shampoos, body and skin rinses, bath gels, soaps, hair conditioners, color conditioners and rinses, hair color solutions, foundation powders (compressed or loose), tooth pastes, oral rinses, and any acceptable cosmetic vehicle or medium.

Application No.: 09/698149   Filing Date: 30/Oct/2000

Abstract:

The present invention relates to a block polymeric material. Typically the block polymer comprises units capable of having an average cationic charge density of about 15 or less, preferably 5 or less, more preferably from about 0.05 to about 5, even more preferably from about 0.05 to about 2.77, even more preferably from about 0.1 to about 2.75, most preferably from about 0.75 to about 2.25 units per 100 daltons molecular weight at a pH of from about 4 to about 12. The polymeric material is a suds enhancer and a suds volume extender for personal care products such as soaps and shampoos. The compositions have increased effectiveness for preventing re-deposition of grease during hand and body washing. The polymers are also effective as a soil release agent in fabric cleaning compositions. The polymeric material is also effective in oil well treating foam, fire-fighting foam, hard surface cleaning foam, shaving cream, post-foaming shaving gel, dephiliatories and as a coagulant/retention aid for titanium dioxide in paper making.

In the first step the hair is contacted for a period of time with a dye precursor mixture containing specific oxidative hair dye precursors under conditions where these dyes are substantially inactive. Color is then developed in a second step by contacting the hair with a mixture of a peroxide compound and a persulfate salt. Surprisingly the 2-step method leads to considerable "lift" or lightening without negatively impacting the coloring ability of the oxidative dye. The invention also relates to kits providing the means to accomplish these steps.

Applicant/Assignee: ZENITECH LLC

Application No.: 11/321524   Filing Date: 30/Dec/2005

Abstract:

Disclosed herein is a composition, for example, a cosmetic care and/or makeup composition for a keratin material, comprising, in a cosmetically acceptable medium, i) at least one polyester resulting from esterification of at least one Guerbet capped polyester ii) at least one oil of a molar mass ranging from 650 to 10,000 g/mol, and iii) at least one colorant. The composition may possess cosmetic properties and can, for example, endow the makeup or care product with properties of gloss, smoothness of application and comfort. Further disclosed herein is the use of the at least one polyester and the at least one oil with a molar mass ranging from 650 to 10,000 g/mol in a physiologically acceptable composition as an agent for endowing the composition with properties of slip, gloss, comfort, definition, non-migration, enhanced color intensity and/or enhanced color retention after challenge. The compositions unlike those made from oxidatively inferior triglycerides do not form degradative odor bodies during storage and use, making them superior to all other materials.
