The pump in turn is connected to a reservoir tank, which may hold a sunscreen lotion, a tanning lotion or a aloe vera lotion. The spray system also includes an automated payment system. Once payment has been verified, a microcontroller sends a signal to the pump to begin operation. The pump draws lotion from the reservoir tank and delivers the lotion to a check valve. Upon reaching a predetermined pressure, the check valve opens and releases the lotion through the spray nozzle and onto the user.

Abstract:

The present invention describes methods for preparing high quality nanoparticles, i.e., metal oxide based nanoparticles of uniform size and monodispersity. The nanoparticles advantageously comprise organic alkyl chain capping groups and are stable in air and in nonpolar solvents. The methods of the invention provide a simple and reproducible procedure for forming transition metal oxide nanocrystals, with yields over 80%. The highly crystalline and monodisperse nanocrystals are obtained directly without further size selection

particle size can be easily and fractionally increased by the methods. The resulting nanoparticles can exhibit magnetic and/or optical properties. These properties result from the methods used to prepare them. Also advantageously, the nanoparticles of this invention are well suited for use in a variety of industrial applications, including cosmetic and pharmaceutical formulations and compositions.

This DNA sequence, referred to as AdKC28, encodes for a protein that acts in conjunction with proteins encoded by either one of two other closely-related Adonis aestivalis cDNAs, AdKeto1 and AdKeto2, to convert beta-carotene (beta,beta-carotene) into astaxanthin (3,3'-dihydroxy-4,4'-diketo-beta,beta-carotene). Together, these Adonis aestivalis cDNAs, when operably linked to promoters appropriate to the transgenic host, enable the production of astaxanthin and other carotenoids with 3-hydroxy-4-keto-beta-rings in a variety of host cells and organisms.

Abstract:

A sunscreen composition, either impregnating a wipe substrate or comprising a sunscreen spray, wherein the composition comprises an oil phase dispersed stably as emulsion droplets in a water phase that contains i) a booster for the sun protection factor (SPF), comprising a combination of water-dispersible particulate materials, one of which is smectite clay, and a water-soluble or water-dispersible phenolic polymer

and ii) a water-soluble or water-dispersible polymer having a weak acid group, a weight average molecular weight of 1,000-100,000 Dalton, and an anionic charge density of no less than 4 milliequivalent per gram of the polymer

the said sunscreen composition meeting the following specifications: i) the in-vivo sun protection factor (SPF) is >=1.8 times the weight percent of the sunscreen active(s) contained therein, based on the weight of the sunscreen composition

and ii) the shear thinning index of the composition is greater by 5% or higher with the weak acid polymer contained therein than without the polymer, the shear thinning index being defined as the ratio of viscosities of the sunscreen composition at 0.5 rpm and 20 rpm, measured on a Brookfield RVT viscometer at 25 DEG C., using spindle 7, after cooling the composition to room temperature and storing it at that temperature for about 24 hours.

Applicants have recognized that incorporating means for washing the skin into a chamber designed for applying a composition to the skin provides a number of advantages such as removal of foreign matter from the skin, and also removal of a proportion of the stratum corneum immediately prior to the removal of a composition such as an artificial tanning agent. Removal of dead skin cells and other contaminants from the skin immediately before the application of a composition improves the reproducibility of the absorption of the active ingredient in the composition.

Abstract:

The topical medicament gel formulation of the present invention includes an anesthetic, an anti-microbial, an oxidant, a nutrient, a diuretic, an opioid, an anti-emetic, an anti-seizure drug, and a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), USP in a molecular, as opposed to a salt form, as the active ingredient. Additional constituents illustratively include a skin penetration enhancer and a gelling agent. This invention deals with problems commonly associated with topical application of local medicaments such as: slow onset of action

need for occlusion

and rapid loss of effect due to rapid systemic dispersion. The invention permits enhanced penetration of the medicament and thereby allows for a lesser total dosage of pharmaceutically active ingredient. The use of a lesser total dosage also decreases systemic toxicity.
