Title: Apparatus for laser depilation

Applicant/Assignee: YA-MAN LTD

Application No.: 10/275966   Filing Date: 19/May/2000

Abstract:

An apparatus for laser depilation according to the present invention uses a semiconductor laser diode, which is controlled in respect of its energy level, thereby permitting an economical, effective and safe cosmetic treatment. The power output of light of the semiconductor laser diode ranges from 5 to 1500 mW, and the peak wavelength ranges from 600 to 1600 nm. The controller of the semiconductor laser diode comprises pulsating power output control means and radiation period control means for setting a desired length of time for radiation. With these control means the energy level of the beam of light from the laser may be so controlled that a strong beam of light may be thrown for a relatively short time, or that a weak beam of light may be thrown for a relatively long time. Thus, hairs of different thickness and colors can be removed.

Title: Polyester based fiber and artificial hair using the same

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 10/482646   Filing Date: 05/Jan/2004

Abstract:

The object of the invention is to provide polyester-based fiber which maintains physical properties of usual polyester fiber, such as heat resistance, strength and elongation and is excellent in setting ability with controlled gloss of the fiber, artificial hair using the same, a method of producing polyester-based fiber, and a method of producing artificial hair by using the same. To achieve the object, a composition obtained by melt-kneading polyalkylene terephthalate or a copolymerized polyester (A) based on polyalkylene terephthalate, polyarylate (B) and a phosphite compound (C) is melt-spun to form fiber.

In the case of melt-kneading, the ester exchange reaction of components (A) and (B) is prevented due to the inhibitory effect of the component (C) on the ester exchange reaction, the heat resistance and physical properties of the fiber are not deteriorated, and a matte effect is brought about by formation of protrusions on the surface of the fiber.

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.

At least some of the combing teeth are thermally conductive so that heat can be conducted from the hair comb to a user's hair via the thermally conductive combing teeth when hair is being engaged under tension by the combing teeth.

Title: Hair thickening composition and method

Applicant/Assignee: SEBASTIAN INTERNATIONAL, INC

Application No.: 10/785765   Filing Date: 23/Feb/2004

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: Dental chair headrest

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/264809   Filing Date: 31/Oct/2005

Abstract:

A headrest for a dental chair that provides both the desirable support to a patient's head as well as avoiding damage to hairstyling is disclosed. The invention provides a U-shaped headrest that allows for comfortable resting of a patient's head on the headrest. The U-shape may be subject to a variety of mechanical changes, for example, making an opening bigger or. smaller, or changes in the angle of the headrest itself so that it better fits the counter of a patient's head. Such changes may be made through manual, pneumatic, or electrical control, or combinations thereof.

Applicant/Assignee: ZENITECH LLC

Application No.: 11/980660   Filing Date: 31/Oct/2007

Abstract:

The present invention is directed to a class of polyesters that are lightly crosslinked polyesters made by reacting polysorbate units (linked by the reaction of their hydroxyl groups) to the carboxyl group of dimer acid. As will become clear, lightly crosslinked as used herein relates to reactions in which there is an excess of hydroxyl groups on a molar basis to carboxylic groups on the dimer acid. The polymers and a contribute softness, lubricity and antistatic properties when applied to hair, skin, textile fiber and paper.

Title: Polyvinyl Chloride-Based Fiber With Excellent Style Changeability

Applicant/Assignee: KANEKA CORPORATION

Application No.: 11/885600   Filing Date: 23/Feb/2006

Abstract:

A polyvinyl chloride-based fiber of the present invention is a fiber formed with a vinyl chloride resin composition that comprises (a) 100 parts by weight of vinyl chloride resin, and (b) 0.2 to 20 parts by weight of crosslinked vinyl chloride resin in which a weight fraction of constituents that are insoluble in tetrahydrofuran is 18 to 45% and a viscosity average degree of polymerization of constituents that are soluble in tetrahydrofuran is 500 to 1800, in which a cross-sectional shape of the fiber comprises a combination of at least two of circles, ellipses, and parabolas. When this fiber is used as artificial hair, it is possible to provide style changeability without impairing matte properties and touch of the vinyl chloride-based fiber. Furthermore, the fiber of the present invention can be produced stably by melt-spinning, and thus an industrial advantage also is provided.
