Title: Sunscreen reagents from hydroxy-substituted acylglycerides

Applicant/Assignee: THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AS REPRESENTED BY THE SECRETARY OF AGRICULTURE

Application No.: 10/462882   Filing Date: 17/Jun/2003

Abstract:

A class of UVA- and UVB-absorbing esters has been derived by modifying hydroxy triglycerides and other acyltriglycerides with any of a variety of cinnamic acids. The esterification reactions are preferably conducted at elevated temperatures without a catalyst. The resultant agents have the advantage of being synthesized from natural materials, while providing a value-added use for the oil. They are readily formulated into standard UV-absorbing daily-wear cosmetic, hair and skin care, and sunscreen formulations.

Title: Personal care compositions comprising a dicarboxy functionalized polyorganosiloxane

Applicant/Assignee: THE PROCTER & GAMBLE COMPANY

Application No.: 10/430647   Filing Date: 06/May/2003

Abstract:

Disclosed are personal care or cosmetic compositions comprising a dicarboxy functionalized polyorganosiloxane and methods for the cleaning or the treatment of hair or skin and for enhancing delivery of active agents to hair or skin with the compositions. Said personal care or cosmetic compositions can be formulated in a wide variety of types of products for the skin and/or hair (or, more generally, keratin) such as mousses, gels (in particular hair dressing gels), conditioners, hair dressing formulations or to aid comb-through of hair, rinsing formulae, hand and body lotions, skin moisturizing products, skin cleansing or disinfecting compositions, shower gels, toilet milks, cream foundations, make-up removal compositions, sun and ultraviolet radiation protection lotions, creams or gels, skin care creams, anti-age preparations, anti-acne preparations, local analgesics, mascaras, deodorants, antiperspirants, lipsticks and other compositions of the same type. The use of dicarboxy functionalized polyorganosiloxanes permits to confer benefits such as an increase in shine, gloss or volume of hair, easier comb-through of hair, easier spreadability or slipperiness onto skin

it also permits a better persistence of active materials or benefits agents deposited onto the surface and consequently permits to maintain the activity of the composition deposited on the surface over time. The dicarboxy functionalized polyorganosiloxane can be used in an amount of from about 0.1% to about 30%, preferably from about 3% to about 10% by weight, of said personal care or cosmetic compositions.

The self-tanning composition adheres to each substrate while in the container, and transfers from the substrate when applied to the skin of a user. The aqueous self-tanning composition comprises 45% to 65% by weight of aqueous extract of Japanese green tea, 5% to 15% dihydroxyacetone, 5% to 25% ethylethoxydyglycol, 3% to 10% PPG- 12-Buteth-16, 1% to 13% of a humectant, 0.05% to 0.5% of minerals, and other trace constituents such as an exfoliator, moisturizer, colorant, anti-oxidant, tanning accelerator, preservative, and sunscreen.

The substrates are infused by being placed in a vacuum chamber in which they can be agitated and tumbled, and the ingredients are added in a specific order at specific temperatures, with tumbling and agitation following each step for a specific period of time.

Title: Multi component controlled delivery system for soap bars

Applicant/Assignee: SALVONA IP, LLC

Application No.: 10/948971   Filing Date: 24/Sep/2004

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: Natural sunlight photostable composition

Applicant/Assignee: TANNING RESEARCH LABORATORIES, INC

Application No.: 10/887464   Filing Date: 08/Jul/2004

Abstract:

The present invention relates to photostable compositions that provide protection from ultraviolet radiation ("UVR"). The invention particularly relates to the sunscreens avobenzone, octocrylene and oxybenzone, forming a triplet sunscreen combination. Compositions of the present invention are generally substantially free of substantial amounts of other sunscreens. The triplet combination surprisingly provides and substantially maintains the initial SPF value of the sunscreen composition throughout the period of UVR exposure. Compositions of the invention are photostable such that each of sunscreen active in the triplet combination does not appreciably photodegrade. The present invention accurately communicates the amount of UVR photoprotection actually provided in natural sunlight and minimizes the amount of potential harmful free radicals formed as byproducts of photodegradation.

Title: Natural sunlight photostable composition

Applicant/Assignee: TANNING RESEARCH LABORATORIES, INC

Application No.: 11/052397   Filing Date: 07/Feb/2005

Abstract:

The present invention relates to photostable compositions that provide protection from ultraviolet radiation ("UVR"). The invention particularly relates to the sunscreens avobenzone, octocrylene and oxybenzone, forming a triplet combination. Compositions of the present invention are free of diesters or polyesters of naphthalene dicarboxylic acid and also are substantially free of substantial amounts of other sunscreens and substantial amounts of optimizing agents. Sunscreens of the invention may be essentially free of, or free of, lower monohydric alcohol and/or acrylates/C12-22 alkylmethacrylate copolymer in an effective non-pilling amount used to gel a C1-C4 alcohol. The triplet combination surprisingly provides and substantially maintains the initial SPF value of the sunscreen composition throughout the period of UVR exposure.

Compositions of the invention are photostable such that each of sunscreen active in the triplet combination does not appreciably photodegrade. The present invention accurately communicates the amount of UVR photoprotection actually provided in natural sunlight.
