Title: Dispensing devices with bottom outlet for dispensing viscous liquids

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 08/869616   Filing Date: 05/Jun/1997

Abstract:

The squeeze container is made of a flexible material and is configured to store and dispense viscous fluid. The squeeze container is fitted with an automatic dispensing nozzle which allows flow when the container is squeezed and cuts off flow when the squeezing forces are removed. A stand is associated with the squeeze container, designed to hold the container in the nozzle down position. The stand may serve as a cover to protect the material before dispensing. The container may have a refill aperture and cap as well as a suspension device incorporated therein.

Title: Non-Petrochemically Derived Cationic Emulsifiers That are Neutralized Amino Acid Esters and Related Compositions and Methods

Applicant/Assignee: INOLEX INVESTMENT CORPORATION

Application No.: 12/825555   Filing Date: 29/Jun/2010

Abstract:

The invention includes a method of increasing the substantivity of a personal care composition to hair, skin or nails by preparing a composition of an aqueous phase, a non-aqueous phase and a neutralized amino acid ester that is a reaction product of a neutral amino acid having a non-polar side chain with a long chain fatty alcohol and is represented by formula (I): wherein R1 is an alkyl group

R2 is a linear or branched carbon chain

Title: Dimer alkyl silicone polymers in personal care applications

Applicant/Assignee: SILTECH CORPORATION

Application No.: 12/807001   Filing Date: 26/Aug/2010

Abstract:

This invention relates to a novel class of Dimer Alkyl Silicone Polymers (DASP) and their use to provide conditioning to skin and hair. By conditioning is meant a elegant smooth skin feel, eliminating dryness and raspiness. It is thought the mechanism of action is related to the fact that the DASP compounds reduce surface tension of personal care products, providing outstanding conditioning and skin feel. The improved conditioning composition based upon a very specific class of dimer alkyl silicone polymers (DASP) that despite their solubility in oil, lower surface tension and improve conditioning of personal care products.

Abstract:

A method for producing three-dimensionally structured surfaces of objects, the object surface being created as a reproduction of a three-dimensionally structured original surface with the aid of a machining tool. Accordingly, the topology of the original surface is first determined, a measured depth value being assigned to each surface or grid element, creating a depth map of the original surface. The depth values are evaluated in terms of their influence on the reflective properties of the surface elements and the reflective properties are stored in the form of parameters. The depth values are then modified in accordance with the reflective values and are used as topological data for the electronic control of a machining tool.

The precursor web can be cast directly onto the forming structure, or it can be re-heated by re-heat means to elevate its temperature sufficiently to permit vacuum formation.

Title: Non-Petrochemically Derived Cationic Emulsifiers That Are Neutralized Amino Acid Esters and Related Compositions and Methods

Applicant/Assignee: INOLEX INVESTMENT CORPORATION

Application No.: 13/187820   Filing Date: 21/Jul/2011

Abstract:

The invention includes a method of increasing the substantivity of a personal care composition to hair, skin or nails by preparing a composition of an aqueous phase, a non-aqueous phase and a neutralized amino acid ester that is a reaction product of a neutral amino acid having a non-polar side chain with a long chain fatty alcohol and is represented by formula (I): wherein R1 is an alkyl group

R2 is a linear or branched carbon chain

and the amine group of the amino acid is neutralized with an acid. The composition is substantially free of petrochemicals and/or derivatives of petrochemical materials. The aqueous phase and the non-aqueous phase are emulsified by the neutralized amino acid ester. Other methods and an emulsifiers that is the neutralized amino acid ester are included.

Because the neutralized amino acid ester and the compositions do not contain petrochemical-derived ingredient, the products are natural.

Title: DUST CAPTURE DEVICE AND PROJECTION TYPE IMAGE DISPLAY APPARATUS

Applicant/Assignee: PANASONIC CORPORATION

Application No.: 12/564235   Filing Date: 22/Sep/2009

Abstract:

The present invention includes: a rolled filter stretched between first and second winding shafts and, unused part of the filter being wound around the second winding shaft

a brush provided between the first and the second winding shafts so as to come into contact with a surface of the filter

a feeding mechanism for driving the first and the second winding shafts to take up or rewind the filter

and a feeding control unit for controlling the feeding mechanism. When activating a renewing operation for feeding unused part of the filter from the second winding shaft, the feeding control unit controls the feeding mechanism such that once the filter is taken up by the first winding shaft by an take-up amount La, the filter is rewound by the second winding shaft by a rewind amount Lb, and La and Lb satisfy a relationship La>=Lb.

Without increasing the amount of the filter or the size of the device itself, the present invention can deliver adequate performance even in a dusty environment by a small number of filter renewing operations.

For example, the method receives a signaling message associated with a user, and accesses a customer premise Internet Protocol (IP) Public Branch eXchange (PBX) to retrieve customer premise IP PBX based service logic and data associated with the user by a Serving Call Session Control Function (S-CSCF) network element. The method then completes a service feature associated with the service logic and data in the communication network.

Title: Tissue cooling rod for laser surgery

Applicant/Assignee: RELIANT TECHNOLOGIES, INC

Application No.: 13/165153   Filing Date: 21/Jun/2011

Abstract:

A laser treatment device and process with controlled cooling. The device contains a cooling element with high heat conduction properties, which is transparent to the laser beam. A surface of the cooling element is held in contact with the tissue being treated while at least one other surface of the cooling element is cooled by the evaporation of a cryogenic fluid. The cooling is coordinated with the application of the laser beam so as to control the temperatures of all affected layers of tissues. In a preferred embodiment useful for removal of wrinkles and spider veins, the cooling element is a sapphire plate. A cryogenic spray cools the top surface of the plate and the bottom surface of the plate is in contact with the skin. In preferred embodiments the wavelength of the laser beam is chosen so that absorption in targeted tissue is low enough so that substantial absorption occurs throughout the targeted tissue. In a preferred embodiment for treating large spider veins with diameters in the range of 1.5 mm, Applicants use an Er:Glass laser with a wavelength of 1.54 microns.
