Abstract:

The invention relates to a method for body shaping by means of a sun-protection agent and a corresponding cosmetic product. The inventive method consists in pre-treating by means of a preliminary product containing a caffeine, algae extract, pineapple extract, radical scavenger, copper gluconate, silylpropionic acid and a melanin-stimulating amino acid-containing agent, in subsequently treating by a main product containing, apart from an UVA- and UVB-Filter, at an ratio ranging from 30:70 to 70:30, a green coffee bean oil whose radical scavenger content is 30-60% less than this of the preliminary agent and in post-treating by means of an after-product which comprises the preliminary product constituents and whose silylpropionic acid content is of 2 to 10 times the content of the preliminary product.

Title: Body wash with sunscreen

Applicant/Assignee: ARIZONA SUNWASH LLC

Application No.: 12/156966   Filing Date: 06/Jun/2008

Abstract:

There is provided a body wash composition that includes sun screen materials. The body wash composition is formulated so that it may be applied during normal hygiene activities, such as washing. However, the composition applies an effective of sun screen material to the body such that the sun screen continues to provide effective solar protection even after rinsing or washing of the human body. Further, the material is a non greasy, easy to apply material that may be used during showering activities in a manner similar to a bar soap or cleanser. The composition includes a variety of materials that assist in the processing and storage of the body wash. Effective amounts of solar protective material include octyl methoxycinamate, octyl salycilate, and titanium dioxide. Testing shows that the product provides a solar protective level of at least approximately 14 even after multiple rinsings.
