Title: Hairbrush for pets and people that releases active ingredients

Applicant/Assignee: I DID IT, INC

Application No.: 11/349638   Filing Date: 08/Feb/2006

Abstract:

A hairbrush for people and pets releases liquid gel perfume, fragrance and/or other active compositions including insect repellant, hair conditioning composition, dye composition, moisturizing ingredients, or antibacterial compounds when brushed or activated by manually depressing a cover. The brush includes a flexible deformable membrane with a plurality of apertures that carries and aligns with apertures in brush bristles for delivery of the liquid gel active composition and is fitted within a first opening of an internal cavity in a brush base. A porous sponge saturated with the liquid gel active ingredient is inserted over the flexible deformable membrane. A cover is inserted through a second opening and rests upon the porous sponge.

Brushing action deforms the flexible deformable membrane and squeezes the sponge, releasing the active ingredient during brushing or when the cover is depressed manually.

Abstract:

A system for deterring an attack and adding with identification and apprehension of an attacker is disclosed. A vessel containing materials capable of leaving stain, odor, or other markings on the attacker and the victim are employed. Comparison of the materials found on the victim and on the attacker will help establish the connection between the two and aid in the positive identification of the attacker. The system further provides for an audio and light alarm as additional ways for the victim to discourage the attacker. Also included is a tool that will aid the victim in escaping from the attacker's vehicle or other surroundings and a device that will help attract attention to the victim and the attacker. Alternatively, miniature devices are employed that remove samples of the attacker's skin, bone, hair, tissue or bodily fluids and store the same.

Subsequent analysis of these samples enables identification of the attacker. Similar devices are also employed to lodge themselves into attacker's skin. These devices contain unique codes that can be employed to identify the attacker. As a further aid in victim rescue and attacker capture, a wireless radio frequency identification device is included, further improving the chances for finding the victim and the attacker.

Abstract:

Disclosed herein is a hair dyeing composition. The composition induces swelling of hair to expand the cortex by the use of arginine, which is a constituent ingredient of hair, and as a result, effectively allows a colorant to infiltrate into the cuticle, thereby increasing the dyeing rate. Therefore, the composition can markedly decrease the dyeing time to 1 (approx.) 5 minutes from 20 (approx.) 30 minutes required in conventional hair dyeing compositions. In addition, the combined effects of aloe vera gel, ceramide and hair keratin enables prevention of damage to the hair during dyeing.

Title: High unsaponifiables and methods of using the same

Applicant/Assignee: INTERNATIONAL FLORA TECHNOLOGIES, LTD

Application No.: 09/478071   Filing Date: 03/Jan/2000

Abstract:

Materials with high levels of unsaponifiable matter, such as extracts from plants, result in hydrolysates with unique properties. The very properties that are sought in the traditional saponification of natural oils are a result of low levels of unsaponifiables. These properties include high levels of aqueous surfactant activity, water-solubility or ready water-dispersability, activity as foaming agents, and the like. The very objective of traditional saponification processes is to increase the water-solubility and surfactant activity of naturally occurring materials. It has been found that the application of a hydrolysis process to materials, particularly materials with a high level of unsaponifiables (e.g., at least 6% by total weight of the material) produces a product with properties significantly different from those products resulting from the conventional saponification of materials with less than 6% by weight of unsaponifiables. The resulting hydrolysates from the practice of the present invention are substantive, resisting both physical and aqueous-based removal from skin and hair, exhibit a very unique surfactant property, and are not foaming agents with water. Hydrolysates according to the present invention may thus be used to enhance the performance of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. These hydrolysates are bioactive agents and alternative natural carrying agents for topical application of materials, particularly for application of materials to the skin or hair of subjects, and provide a substantive support for the materials carried.

Title: Depilatories and agents for external use

Applicant/Assignee: KAO CORPORATION

Application No.: 11/026090   Filing Date: 03/Jan/2005

Abstract:

This invention relates to depilatories and external preparations, each of which contains endothelin or its agonist, and also to a depilating method characterized by administering endothelin or its agonist. As the depilatories and external preparations according to the present invention inhibit growth of hair in mammalian skin, their application to the human body as drugs or cosmetics permits safe and effective removal of hair from the body. These depilatories and external preparations are also usable as wool harvesting preparations.

Title: Hair colouring compositions

Applicant/Assignee: THE PROCTER & GAMBLE COMPANY

Application No.: 11/293596   Filing Date: 02/Dec/2005

Abstract:

The present invention relates to an oxidative hair colouring and bleaching composition comprising an oxidizing agent, a source of carbonate ions, an alkalising agent, and preformed dyes, utilised at pH 9.5 and below which improved colour delivery, intensity and vibrancy, which are compatible with current dyes and dye precursor systems. Moreover, the compositions of the present invention also exhibit low odour and deliver a high level of lift and lightening equal to the currently utilised ammonia/peroxide systems, whilst reducing the concentration of peroxide and reducing the hair fibre damage.
