Abstract:

Cellobiose esters and particularly alpha cellobiose octanonanoate has been found able to structure water-immiscible liquids well, and in particular can produce clear structured emulsions. However, such emulsions tend to lose clarity or structural strength during storage. Deviating from alpha-cellobiose octanonanoate can result in impaired clarity and/or impaired hardness of emulsion sticks. However, acylated cellobiose which contains acyl substituents of formula -O-CO-R in which R represents an n-octyl residue and the percentage Y of the nonanoate acyl substituent -O-CO-R at the anomeric carbon is at least 60% and the percentage A of alpha anomer is greater than the anomer and not higher than A=74.5 +0.2Y when Y is up to 92% and not higher than A=161-0.74Y when Y is greater than 92% offers the production of sticks combining structurant stability with product clarity and hardness.

Application No.: 10/231723   Filing Date: 30/Aug/2002

Abstract:

Methods for inducing a thermoplastic polymer, which can be non-mesogenic, to exhibit liquid crystalline properties have been developed. The method includes the steps of (a) heating the polymer from an initial temperature below its glass transition temperature (Tg) to a temperature greater than its Tg and below its melting temperature (Tm)

(b) exposing the polymer to a pressure greater than about 2 metric tons/in<2>, preferably between about 2 and 10 metric tons/in<2>, preferably for at least about one minute, while maintaining the temperature greater than its Tg

and (c) cooling the polymer below the Tg while maintaining the elevated pressure. Unlike many prior art transition processes which are reversible, this process provides a liquid crystal state that can be maintained for years at ambient conditions.

In a preferred embodiment, the plastics are bioerodible thermoplastic polymers, such as polyanhydrides, some polyesters, polyamides, and polyaromatics. The liquid crystalline polymers can be used in the controlled release or retention of substances encapsulated in the polymers. The polymer can be in a variety of forms including films, film laminants, and microparticles. In a preferred embodiment, the LC polymers are used to encapsulate therapeutic, diagnostic, or prophylactic agents for use in medical or pharmaceutical applications.

Title: Device for dispensing a product, particularly product samples, as a spray

Applicant/Assignee: L'OREAL

Application No.: 10/145046   Filing Date: 15/May/2002

Abstract:

A device for containing and dispensing a fluid product, such as a cosmetic product, in the form of a spray. The device includes a reservoir containing the product at substantially atmospheric pressure, with the reservoir having flexible walls that preferably do not have shape memory. The device is equipped with a spray member for spraying the product in response to pressure exerted on the flexible walls of the reservoir, and an anti-air- intake element provided in order to prevent any entry of air inside the reservoir when said pressure ceases. When pressure is applied, the walls are deformed and the product is sprayed from the container. After dispensing is completed, the walls are maintained in the deformed state because air is prevented from entering the container.

As a result, the next spraying action occurs more immediately and consistently because the container remains substantially filled with the product as the volume of the container is reduced upon deformation of the container walls.

Title: Process for preparing a cosmetic formulation

Applicant/Assignee: DOW GLOBAL TECHNOLOGIES INC

Application No.: 10/091880   Filing Date: 06/Mar/2002

Abstract:

The present invention is a process of preparing an advanced cosmetic product by combining a high internal phase ratio (HIPR) emollient-in-water emulsion with a partial cosmetic formulation that typically contains water, fragrance, a rheology modifier, or a pH adjuster, or a combination thereof. The present invention is also a composition comprising two particular subclasses of HIPR emollient-in-water emulsions, namely an HIPR silicone elastomer-in-water emulsion and an HIPR sunscreen-in-water emulsion. The use of an HIPR emulsion of a cosmetic emollient provides a simple and flexible method of formulating the cosmetic product, due in part to the long shelf-stability of the HIPR emulsion (>1 year), and the low quantity of water in the emulsion (typically less than 20% by volume based on the volume of emollient and water).

Title: Multi component controlled delivery system for soap bars

Applicant/Assignee: SALVONA LLC

Application No.: 10/286143   Filing Date: 01/Nov/2002

Abstract:

The present invention relates to an improved controlled delivery system that can be incorporated in soap bars to enhance deposition of active ingredients and sensory markers onto skin. The carrier system also provides controlled release or prolonged release of these actives from the skin over an extended period of time. The controlled delivery system of the present invention comprises substantially free-flowing, powder formed of solid hydrophobic, positively charged, nanospheres of encapsulated active ingredients, that are encapsulated in moisture sensitive microspheres. The high cationic charge density of the nanosphere improves deposition of active ingredients onto skin.

The high cationic charge density on the nanosphere surface is created by incorporating a cationic conditioning agent into the solid hydrophobic matrix of the nanospheres, by incorporating a cationic charge "booster" in the moisture sensitive microsphere matrix, or by using a cationic conditioning agent in the nanosphere matrix in conjunction with a cationic charge "booster" in the microsphere matrix. The invention also pertains to soap products comprising the controlled release system of the present invention.

Title: Emulsification systems and emulsions

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 09/865296   Filing Date: 29/May/2001

Abstract:

Personal care or cosmetic oil in water emulsions include an oil emulsifier and a combination of a Xanthan polysaccharide and a polyglucomannan polysaccharide to provide enhanced stability even at low emulsifier stabiliser levels. The emulsifier stabiliser system provides stable emulsions without dominating system rheology, particularly viscosity. Thus, the emulsions can have a low viscosity suitable for formulation as milks or thin lotions, or can be thickened, desirably by thickening agents other than the Xanthan and/or polyglucomannan, to provide emulsion creams or gels. This enables the system to be used very flexibly in end use applications.

The emulsifier is desirably a non-ionic emulsifier and particularly is a combination of a low HLB and a high HLB emulsifier and can be formulated with conventional alcohol ethoxylate surfactants or from non-EO surfactants e.g. sucrose ester high HLB surfactants and citrate or sorbitan ester low HLB surfactants.

Patent No.: US7141238B2  Issued: 28/Nov/2006

Title: Compositions for reducing UV-induced inhibition of collagen biosynthesis in human skin

Applicant/Assignee: THE REGENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN

Application No.: 10/691076   Filing Date: 22/Oct/2003

Abstract:

Exposure of human skin to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun not only induces the production of enzymes (matrix metalloproteinases) that degrade collagen, but also inhibits the synthesis of new collagen by inhibiting the synthesis of procollagen. This UV-induced inhibition of the synthesis of collagen can be prevented by the topical application of a retinoid or c-JUN inhibitor to the skin prior to exposure to UV radiation.

Title: UVA (> 360-400) and UVB (300-325) specific sunscreens

Applicant/Assignee: REGENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN

Application No.: 09/900535   Filing Date: 06/Jul/2001

Abstract:

UVB radiation of about 300-310 nm wavelength and UVA radiation of about 380-390 nm wavelength, each of which exists in solar light, induces MMPs (matrix metalloproteinases) in human skin that degrade the collagen of the dermal matrix. This degradation contributes to photoaging of human skin, which can be prevented by blocking these wavelengths of solar radiation. In contrast, diseases that result in the overproduction of collagen can be treated by exposing the affected with to radiation having wavelengths in those regions, for these wavelengths not only induce MMPs but also inhibit collagen biosynthesis. For lighter skinned people so affected, the UVA wavelengths are preferred because of the reduced amount of erythema, whereas dark skinned people can be treated with the UVB radiation because they generally do not suffer from erythema.
