US PATENTS IN SUNSCREEN FORMULATION GRANTED IN 2012



Patent No.: US8088363B2  Issued: 03/Jan/2012

Title: Protection against sunburn and skin problems with orally-ingested high-dosage zeaxanthin

Applicant/Assignee: ZEAVISION LLC

Application No.: 10/356134   Filing Date: 01/Feb/2003

Abstract:

A carotenoid substance called zeaxanthin, when ingested orally at suitable dosages such as 30 to 100 mg/day for a span of 1 to 2 weeks, can provide effective protection against sunburns, and can give skin a darker tint that emulates a healthy suntan. In tests involving adults, it was found that zeaxanthin dosages of 30 to about 80 mg per day were sufficient to induce: (i) a mild but noticeable tinting, shading, or darkening of skin color, comparable to a mild suntan

(ii) a substantial increase in the person's ability to withstand elevated levels of sun or UV exposure without any subsequent pain or discomfort, and without the subsequent peeling and flaking that characterizes sunburns

and, (iii) an increased ability of reddened and sunburned skin to convert into intact skin that looks browned and healthily tanned.

By reducing the amount of exposure to sunlight (or tanning lights) that are required to achieve a desired level of tanning, zeaxanthin can reduce the risks of skin cancer, premature aging or wrinkling, and similar skin problems. Since zeaxanthin also has retina-protecting properties and reduces the risk of a disease called macular degeneration, oral ingestion of these dosages of a zeaxanthin to enhance a tanned appearance and/or to protect against sun damage is believed to pose no health risks, and can offer several benefits due to the anti-oxidant and other activities of zeaxanthin.

Title: Non-Petrochemically Derived Cationic Emulsifiers That are Neutralized Amino Acid Esters and Related Compositions and Methods

Applicant/Assignee: INOLEX INVESTMENT CORPORATION

Application No.: 12/825555   Filing Date: 29/Jun/2010

Abstract:

The invention includes a method of increasing the substantivity of a personal care composition to hair, skin or nails by preparing a composition of an aqueous phase, a non-aqueous phase and a neutralized amino acid ester that is a reaction product of a neutral amino acid having a non-polar side chain with a long chain fatty alcohol and is represented by formula (I): wherein R1 is an alkyl group

R2 is a linear or branched carbon chain

and the amine group of the amino acid is neutralized with an acid. The composition is substantially free of petrochemicals and/or derivatives of petrochemical materials. The aqueous phase and the non-aqueous phase are emulsified by the neutralized amino acid ester. Other methods and an emulsifiers that is the neutralized amino acid ester are included.

Because the neutralized amino acid ester and the compositions do not contain petrochemical-derived ingredient, the products are natural.

Application No.: 12/194674   Filing Date: 20/Aug/2008

Abstract:

A cosmetic composition and method is herein described for sunless tanning to impart a glow/shiny effect on skin. The composition includes a sunless tanning agent and coated beads incorporating tan colored pigment. A colorant which imparts a color other than tan to the beads is distributed within the coating. The cosmetic composition provides to the skin an immediate tan via the disintegrated beads. Sunless tanning agent acts more slowly and eventually will replace the pigment effect. The coating with colorant prevents the formula undesirably from appearing tan. Instead a color such as white renders the formula more aesthetically pleasing and more in line with the visuals paradigm of a moisturizer rather than a foundation.

Title: Composition of a Water-Soluble Sunscreen Preparation for Acne Rosacea

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 12/371327   Filing Date: 13/Feb/2009

Abstract:

The object of the invention is to provide a topical preparation for (acne) rosacea and other sensitive skin types that protects the face from harmful UV rays without the use of chemical sunscreen ingredients. It has long been found that chemical sunscreen ingredients (most popular are oxybenzone and avobenzone) can cause an increase of rosacea symptoms (flushing, erythema, papules) (Nedorost (2003) and Landers et al., 2003). Furthermore, typical waterproof sunscreen preparations also contain various forms of silicones that are used to increase the hydrophobicity of the sunscreen. These waterproof sunscreen preparations impair the release of heat from the skin. The combination of this "trapped heat" and a sensitivity to chemical sunscreen ingredients, is harmful to rosacea skin.

Therefore, a sunscreen preparation that is water-soluble and uses alternative UV absorbing and UV scattering ingredients would be very useful in protecting rosacea skin from harmful UV rays.

Title: Modified hydrophilic polymers containing hydrophobic groups

Applicant/Assignee: LUROMED LLC

Application No.: 12/586716   Filing Date: 28/Sep/2009

Abstract:

Disclosed are hydrophilic polymers such as polysaccharides, including hyaluronic acid of any origin, modified by reaction with epoxy-functional-silicones. Hydrophobic silicon, which contains chemically active groups covalently attach to the backbone of the hydrophilic polymer and gives these new, modified polymers the ability to dissolve hydrophobic compounds including oils, drugs, and vitamins, while maintaining the hydrophilic properties and benefits of the unmodified polymer. With respect to topical applications these polymers substantially increase the stability of formulations and provide for ease of preparation. The properties and advantages of the original polymer are maintained while other properties are augmented, namely the ability to combine with or dissolve hydrophobic and hydrophilic drugs.

The products can be used alone or in combination with other substances for various applications including cosmetic, medical, and drug delivery applications. Also disclosed are methods for preparing them.

Title: Stable sunscreen compositions containing zinc oxide

Applicant/Assignee: AMCOL INTERNATIONAL CORPORATION

Application No.: 11/150053   Filing Date: 10/Jun/2005

Abstract:

A stable, oil-in-water (O-W) emulsion-based sunscreen composition having at least one water-insoluble, organic UV-absorber having a water-solubility of much less than 0.1% by weight, contained in the oil phase of the sunscreen emulsion, comprising i) zinc oxide (ZnO) particles having a surface free of any prior coating of any inorganic oxide and hydrophobic material, remaining dispersed in the water phase of the sunscreen emulsion

ii) at least one non- or low-foaming, non-cationic, hydrophilic polymer, capable of dispersing or deflocculating the ZnO particles but incapable of thickening an aqueous composition to a viscosity of greater than 100 cps at 25 DEG C., wherein the viscosity is measured using a Brookfield viscometer operated at 10 rpm for 15 seconds, when the polymer is added at an amount of 1%, based on the total weight of the polymer and water in the aqueous composition

iii) at least one phenolic polymer, capable of functioning as a dispersing or deflocculating agent for particulate material(s), and adsorbing at an oil-water interface

and v) a buffering agent for the water phase of the sunscreen emulsion.
