Title: HAIR GROWTH STIMULANT AND PREPARATION METHOD THEREOF

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 12/376278   Filing Date: 26/Jul/2007

Abstract:

A hair growth stimulant is provided. The hair growth stimulant uses carbonized chestnut burrs that exhibit excellent stimulatory effects on hair restoration and hair growth effects without causing side effect and toxicity. The hair growth stimulant exhibits excellent stimulatory effects on hair restoration without causing any side effect and toxicity in humans and stimulates hair roots to greatly contribute to hair growth. Therefore, the hair growth stimulant is effective in preventing hair loss and grayness. In addition, the hair growth stimulant is formulated into a cream or ointment preparation, which is highly effective in promoting the restoration of hair, to considerably shorten the time required for the treatment of hair loss. Furthermore, the hair growth stimulant uses vegetable ingredients only, thus causing no side effect in humans.

Moreover, the hair growth stimulant is softly applicable to the scalp, thus offering convenience in use.

A water-dispersible particle is provided that includes organic origin potash in an amount ranging from 5% to 99.9% by weight of the total dry weight of the particle. A binder component is present in an amount from 1% to 95% by weight. The organic origin potash and the binder component on that contact with water causes particle dispersion into more than 100 pieces. A process for making a water-dispersible particle includes mechanical aggregation of the potash into a pellet. A binder component is present in the particle in an amount ranging from 1% to 95% by weight. The potash and the binder component are present in a form such that contact with water causes particle dispersion into more than 100 pieces. The pellet is then dried and ready to be applied.

Title: Electrolytic system and method for reshaping hair

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 13/428966   Filing Date: 23/Mar/2012

Abstract:

A system and method of changing the shape of hair by breaking disulfide bridges in the keratin proteins of hair with atomic hydrogen. A hair setting structure is provided that contains at least one cathode and at least one anode. Hair is set into a predetermined shape. The hair is wet with the electrically conductive medium. Electrolysis is induced within the electrically conductive medium by flowing electrical current between cathodes and anodes. The electrolysis creates hydrogen. The hydrogen cleaves the disulfide bonds in the keratin proteins of the hair. After the disulfide bonds are broken, electrolysis is stopped and the hair is neutralized. The neutralization enables the disulfide bonds to reform, therein reshaping the hair into what is commonly referred to as a permanent wave.

Title: Targeted And Individualized Cosmetic Delivery

Applicant/Assignee: ELC MANAGEMENT LLC

Application No.: 12/410118   Filing Date: 24/Mar/2009

Abstract:

A system and methods are provided for targeted and individualized delivery of multiple skin benefit agents to the skin of a user. The image of a predetermined treatment area of the user's skin is first captured by an imaging device. The captured image data is then analyzed by a computing device to generate a unique skin profile for the user. Based on such skin profile, a printing device prints out one or more cosmetic delivery sheets that can be applied to the predetermined treatment area. Each of the cosmetic delivery sheets contains a substrate with multiple isolated, discrete regions, while at least two of the regions are imprinted with different skin benefit agents for treating different skin conditions of the predetermined treatment area according to the unique skin profile of the user.

Targeted delivery of one or multiple skin benefit agents to the skin of a user may be achieved by applying and conforming to the skin a flexible cosmetic delivery sheet having associated therewith the multiple skin benefit agents.

Application No.: 12/959861   Filing Date: 03/Dec/2010

Abstract:

An apparatus and method for removing hair from the surface of skin may include two elongate elements entwined with one another whereby a local mutual twist is formed along the length of the elements. Each of the elements may be held in place and put into tension by a respective one of two structural members. A method for removing hair may include moving the two structural members with the elements in tension, bringing the bottom end of one member closer to the bottom end of the second member such that the coil travels toward the bottom ends of the elements, and then bringing the top end of one member closer to the top end of the second member, such that the coil travels toward the top ends of the elements. As the coil travels between the top and bottom ends of the elements, it extracts hairs from the skin.
