Abstract:

A composition of certain dyes with a category-2 hair bleach can simultaneously lighten hair up to seven levels and deposit various shades of color in a single step. The dyes are bleach-stable derivatives of azo, triarylmethane, thiazine, or nitro dyes. When linked at the ortho- and/or para-positions relative to the chromophoric centers and auxochrome groups located on or attached to the aromatic rings of these dyes, deactivating or weakly activating chemical groups enhance the dye stability in the alkaline bleach. The absence of ortho and/or para positioned deactivating or weakly-activating substituents, or the presence of strongly activating groups in these positions render the dye molecule susceptible to attack by the bleach and the eventual destruction of these dyes.

These deactivating and protective chemical groups may be nitro, halogen, cyano, carboxyl, sulfonic, alkyl or aromatic groups, but not amino, hydroxy, alkoxy or alkylamide groups.

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.

Applicant/Assignee: TANNING RESEARCH LABORATORIES, INC

Application No.: 10/887464   Filing Date: 08/Jul/2004

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 sunscreen combination. Compositions of the present invention are generally substantially free of substantial amounts of other sunscreens. 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 and minimizes the amount of potential harmful free radicals formed as byproducts of photodegradation.

R2 represents in particular a hydrogen atom or an optionally substituted alkyl radical

R3 represents a hydrogen atom or an alkyl radical

R4 represents a hydrogen atom or a radical such as NH2, OH, SH, -CHOHCH3, -CONH2

n is a number greater than 1 such that the poly-aminoacid derivative molecular weight ranges between 200 and 200000. The invention also concerns the use of said derivatives for keratinous fibre strengthening and care

Title: Dyestuff for keratin fibers

Applicant/Assignee: WELLA AG

Application No.: 10/537073   Filing Date: 01/Jun/2005

Abstract:

The colorant for keratin fibers contains direct and/or oxidative dyes as well as a perfume system consisting of an encapsulated perfume and an unencapsulated perfume of the same composition. The ratio of encapsulated perfume to unencapsulated perfume is equal to about 0.5:3 to 3:0.5. The perfume system is used for removing or masking the unpleasant odor of alkalinizing agents in the colorant.
