Title: Fabric and a method of making the fabric

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/409113   Filing Date: 21/Apr/2006

Abstract:The present invention is based on the realization that improved wicking of liquid from an inner face to an outer face of a fabric can be achieved by a fabric structure where the inner face of the fabric has a substantially uniform hydrophobicity and where the inner face is formed by hydrophobic yarn that is assembled in a manner that allows the liquid to penetrate between hydrophobic yarn and make contact with hydrophilic yarn that forms at least part of the outer face of the fabric. When liquid penetrates the inner face and makes contact with the hydrophilic yarn, liquid is able to be drawn through the inner face to the outer face of the fabric. Although the hydrophobic and hydrophilic yarns and may be made from any one or a blend of man-made or synthetic fibers, and natural fibers, it is preferred that the yarns and the fully formed fabric be made entirely of cotton fibers. The fabric is suitable for use in a wide range of applications including underwear. Another application involves laminating the fabric to a functional film such as a waterproof and/or windproof breathable membrane to produce functional outerwear garments.

Title: System for styling hair

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 09/742871   Filing Date: 20/Dec/2000

Abstract:This invention is a system and a method for styling hair and parting hair according to a predetermined pattern. The invention utilizes a stencil that has a patterned edge. Preferably, the stencil is a flattened elongated stencil device that is formed from a resilient material, such as plastic polyurethane or rubber, and is capable of conforming to the curvature of a human head. In operation the stencil device is placed over the area of hair to be styled and the patterned edge of the stencil device is traced through the hair with a parting device. The hair is then separated along the trace with the parting device to created a hair style with a part patterned substantially similar the patterned edge of the stencil device used. The parting device preferably has a tip portion for tracing the part through the hair and a handle portion for separating the hair.

Preferably, the handle portion of the parting device has two movable handles that are hingably attached to the tip portion and which open and close in a "jaw-like" fashion. Accordingly, the tip portion is moved through the hair near the scalp while tracing along the patterned edge of the stencil device. The handles are preferably in the closed position and with the tip portion pointing in a forward tracing direction. While tracing the tip through the hair, the hair flows over the handles and collects on the handles. After the tracing is complete, the hair is separated by lifting the parting device through the hair with the handles in the open position. Alternatively, the parting device has a tip portion and a flared body portion. Accordingly, the hair is separated as a result of the hair flowing from the tip portion over the flared handle as the tip section is traced through the hair.

Abstract:Hair restorative compositions useful in repairing damaged hair include at least one hair shaft bonding agent dispersed within an appropriate solvent or carrier, such as water. When applied to damaged hair, the hair shaft bonding agent adsorbs into and bonds to the damaged hair shaft, filling in discontinuities and adhering split ends or loosened cuticle layers back together within the main hair shaft. A wetting agent may be included to facilitate absorption and bonding of the hair shaft bonding agent to hair. A thickening agent may be included to yield a hair restorative composition that is much easier to apply compared to runny compositions having the consistency of water. A conditioner may be added to nourish and condition the hair.

The inventive hair restorative compositions are able to permanently repair damaged hair, thereby resulting in hair that is stronger, healthier, and more resistant to further damage.

Title: Organic therapeutic and cosmetic preparation

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/638122   Filing Date: 13/Dec/2006

Abstract:A mixture of an aqueous solution, essential oils and mechanically extracted kelp cytoplasm results in an emulsion with cosmetic and therapeutic properties. The preparation may be used on human and animal hair or skin. The moisturizing properties of the kelp cytoplasm provide the aqueous solution to the hair (keratin) which is absorbed, causing the hair to swell, and become heavier and more pliable. The alginate gels and oils in the emulsion coat the hair strands to reduce breakage and splitting and add weight to the strand. The preparation dries with gel capsules, which release moisture over time for a long-lasting effect. The preparation also provides nutrients, gel and moisture to the skin and fills micro cracks in the keratin layer of dry, chapped skin. The preparation seals off the cracks from the environment while trapping moisture pockets. This provides an environment conducive for healing.
