Abstract:

A combined cushion and protective covering for a patient support having a patient-supporting surface comprises a central section having length and width dimensions corresponding substantially to corresponding dimensions of the support surface. Flaps which are unitary with the central section extend from the side edges of the central section a distance beyond the side edges of the support surface. The flaps are thinner than the central section so as to depend from the central section and lie alongside the patient-supporting surface. The central section and the flaps are formed simultaneously by compressing a block of cushioning material in such manner that the central section forms a pad or cushion unitarily joined at its opposite sides to the flaps.

During the compression of the block to form the central pad and the flaps the external surfaces of the pad and flaps are heated to an extent sufficient to enable the surfaces of the pad and flaps to form a smooth, moisture proof skin.

Applicant/Assignee: CONOPCO, INC. D/B/A UNILEVER

Application No.: 11/895220   Filing Date: 23/Aug/2007

Abstract:

It has been reported that many organic sunscreens lose their efficacy on exposure to UV rays. Further some of the organic sunscreens are known to interact with each other when applied on the skin with or without exposure to UV radiation. Thus such compositions are not stable. They are not very effective in blocking the UV-rays a few minutes or hours after the product has been applied to the skin. Further when such compositions are used and then exposed to sunlight or UV rays, the period over which the skin is actually protected is very short, while the consumer is under the mistaken impression that the composition is protecting his/her skin. This false impression can lead to the consumer exposing himself/herself more to sunlight thereby getting more damage to the skin. A solution to the foregoing problem is provided by a stable sunscreen composition comprising: (a) a complex of a first organic sunscreen % with a first paramagnetic metal ion

and (b) a second organic sunscreen.

Title: Two part wound dressing

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/890190   Filing Date: 02/Aug/2007

Abstract:

A wound dressing that includes two layers for a two part solution to the needs of a healing skin wound. The first step involves a relatively closed system wherein moisture is kept near the skin to promote healing. The second step allows for removal of a top layer of the dressing to reveal a layer with a series of apertures that allows for 100% moisture vapor and oxygen transmission rates to avoid irritation and itching of the skin. At the same time, the bottom layer of the wound dressing maintains a significant outer perimeter that prevents the perimeter migration of microorganisms into the healing wound. The wound dressing can also be used as a means for securing medical instruments, such as intravenous catheters, to the skin of a patient while avoiding the itching and irritation associated with traditional methods.

Title: Membrane mask with acupuncture and massage functions and manufacturing methods

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/515837   Filing Date: 06/Sep/2006

Abstract:

This invention is related to a facial membrane mask and its device for cosmetic and health care applications. This invention is particularly related to transcutaneous electric acupoint stimulators and cosmetic facial membrane masks. The combination of these two devices results in synergistic effects. This invention uses a facial membrane mask that can absorb skin care solution. Electrodes are integrated with the membrane at the positions which correspond to facial acupoints. When the wet facial membrane mask covers the face, the electric pulses generated by the stimulator can stimulate the corresponding acupoints, nerve or muscle. The stimulation results in acupuncture or massage effects. Therefore, both the traditional facial membrane's skin care effects, such as moisturizing and whitening etc., and acupuncture/massage effects can be obtained concurrently. Being able to modulate facial meridians and improve subcutaneous blood circulation, this invention is useful for cosmetic and health care purposes.

Title: Aloe Powder, Aloe Juice, and Method for Producing the Same

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/597217   Filing Date: 21/May/2004

Abstract:

In the conventional technology, macromolecular polysaccharides, which the aloe vera gel inherently has, are broken down into small molecules for the following reasons: First, cellulose is broken down by the enzyme such as cellulose

Second, agitation in the cellulose breakdown process by the enzyme of cellulase and the like is performed in a heated state for an extended period of time

Third, nearly the same technique is employed also in the aloin absorption process by the activated charcoal

Fourth, a plurality of times of filtering causes intense oxidation to the gel juice. For the reasons described above, the molecular weight of macromolecular polysaccharides, which the aloe vera gel inherently has, is reduced to 80,000 dalton or less. Therefore, by use of the conventional technology, it is impossible to provide macromolecular polysaccharides that the aloe vera gel has in a state where aloin is removed. To solve the above-mentioned problem, we provide aloe powder which is made from aloe vera gel, characterized by that a molecular weight of polysaccharides contained in the powder is not less than 400,000 dalton and an aloin content ratio of the powder is not more than 50 ppm.

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/774016   Filing Date: 06/Jul/2007

Abstract:

An elastic composite that contains an elastic film laminated to one or more nonwoven materials is provided. By selectively controlling the constituents of the composite and the method by which it is formed, the present inventors have discovered that the composite may be resistant to oils and other skin care compositions. More specifically, the elastic film is formed from one or more low density semi-crystalline propylene-based polymers that possess a unique combination of mechanical, elastic, and oil-resistant properties. By using such elastomeric polymers, the resulting elastic film may also be thermally bonded to the nonwoven web material(s) without the need for oil-resistant adhesives. Further, the bonding conditions may be selected so that apertures do not form in the film. In this manner, the resulting composite is impervious to oils or other liquids (e.g., solvents, water, solutions, etc.) and thus acts as a barrier during use.

In one preferred embodiment, the compositions include a glyceryl monoazelate ester. In another embodiment, the compositions include a glyceryl monoazelate monolaurate ester. It is postulated that bacteria on the skin cleave the ester linkage of a compound according to the disclosure that is applied to the skin, which causes liberation of the acid moiety from the ester, which acid moiety then inhibits or kills the bacterium. Compositions according to the disclosure may comprise skin creams, soaps, shampoos and lotions, and are especially effective in treating acne and acne-like skin ebullitions. The glyceryl portion of the molecules is believed to facilitate penetration of the ester into the skin.

Abstract:

Disclosed is a method for making an appliance adapted to transfer to, or associate with, the skin or tissue of a user, a composition, e.g., a moisturizing formulation. Because of possible interactions between the formulation and/or formulation ingredients and elastic polymers that may be employed to help give the appliance elastic qualities, the method comprises steps for providing an elastic layer or member and a shielding layer or member, with the shielding member interposed between the composition/formulation and the elastic member. The shielding layer and elastic layer may be integrally connected to one another, as in a film comprising two layers.

Application No.: 11/711378   Filing Date: 27/Feb/2007

Abstract:

A dispensing device and method for forming a least partially solid or gel-like material from a liquid. At least one liquid issuing from an outlet is subjected to an electric field causing the liquid to form at least one electrically charged jet which, after formation, forms a fiber (F) or breaks up into fiber fragments (FF) or particles (D). The thus formed at least partially solid or gel-like material may be directly deposited, by virtue of the energy in the electrical field, onto a surface area, for example an area of skin enabling, for example, formation of a dressing for a wound or burn which is of high specific area and extremely absorbent. A biologically active ingredient such as a pharmaceutical ingredient or biological matter such as DNA may be incorporated into the fibers (F), fragments (FF) or particles (D). Fibrils, particles or microcapsules incorporating a biologically active ingredient may be supplied for oral or nasal administration to an animal such as a human being.

Application No.: 11/707031   Filing Date: 16/Feb/2007

Abstract:

The wearable tactile navigation system frees you from requiring to use your eyes as there is no display, all positional information is conveyed via touch. As a compass, the device nudges you towards North. As a GPS navigator, the device orients you towards a landmark (i.e., home) and lets you feel how far away home is. A bluetooth interface provides network capabilities, allowing you to download map landmarks from a cell phone. The bidirectional networking capability generalizes the device to a platform capable of collecting any sensor data as well as providing tactile messages and touch telepresence. The main application of the device is a wayfinding device for people that are blind and for people that suffer from Alzheimer's disease but there are many other applications where it is desirable to provide geographical information in tactile form as opposed to providing it in visual or auditory form.

Title: Skin Rejuvenation Cream

Applicant/Assignee: AD LUNAM LABS, INC

Application No.: 11/957564   Filing Date: 17/Dec/2007

Abstract:

The subject invention relates to a skin cream that can be used to moisturize and rejuvenate skin that has been damaged by exposure to sunlight or which has simply been affected over the years by intrinsic aging. It can also be used to slow the rate of photo-induced aging to maintain beautiful skin tone and texture over the years. It inhibits the formation of wrinkles and in some cases reduces the depth of existing wrinkles or eliminates them entirely. In some cases, the skin cream of this invention also lightens age spots and other types of blemishes associated with aging. This invention is based upon the discovery that alkyl lactates, such as ethyl lactate, can be used to improve the penetration of active ingredients in skin care formulations deep into lower layers of the skin tissue. For instance, ethyl lactate can be included in aqueous based skin creams, such as oil in water emulsions, to deliver active ingredients deep into the skin structure. Ethyl lactate is particularly desirable for utilization in conjunction with ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) containing skin cream formulations. This is beneficial because the overall effectiveness of skin creams that utilize ascorbic acid as an active ingredient is contingent upon delivery of the ascorbic acid through the outer layers of the stratum corneum and viable epidermis and into the dermis layer of the skin structure. The present invention more specifically discloses a topical formulation comprising about 1 weight percent to about 20 weight percent ascorbic acid, about 1 weight percent to about 10 weight percent of an amino acid selected from the group consisting of phenylalanine and tyrosine, about 0.5 weight percent to about 5 weight percent of a non-toxic zinc salt, about 0.01 weight percent to about 20 weight percent of an alkyl lactate, wherein the alkyl group in the alkyl lactate contains from 2 to about 12 carbon atoms, and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier.

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/960327   Filing Date: 19/Dec/2007

Abstract:

Insulin or a peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) agonist provides reliable and effective prevention of scarring in human skin, or at least a reduction in the severity of scarring. The application of insulin or the PPAR agonist to wounds topically or by local injection is particularly advantageous since it simultaneously reduces/prevents scarring whilst enhancing re-epithelialisation of the wound and thus provides a dual action wound healing treatment. The present invention accordingly provides a highly effective prophylactic treatment for any individual suffering tissue trauma to reduce and/or prevent normal and/or pathological scarring.

Abstract:

A method of minimizing or reducing the toxicity of a retinoid having a free carboxyl group and the resulting modified retinoids are described. The method comprises the step of esterifying the carboxyl group of the retinoid with a highly sterically hindered compound, which is preferably a secondary or tertiary alcohol. The resulting retinoid esters are rendered much less toxic than the starting or parent retinoid. This process provides a retinoid ester analog of reduced toxicity so that it may be administered orally with minimal side effects and with a much greater therapeutic window. The modified retinoid compounds are useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of all diseases and disorders where retinoid compounds have been shown effective.

Title: Increased effectiveness of allylamine drug compounds for topical treatment of fungal infections of the skin and skin appendages

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 12/012647   Filing Date: 05/Feb/2008

Abstract:

The invention is an increased effectiveness of allylamine drug compounds for topical treatment of fungal infections of skin and skin appendages. The allylamine active ingredient is prepared in an acidic environment

the acidic environment altering the physiochemical properties of the active ingredient resulting in the active ingredient having a positive charge. The positive charge and enhancers used in the formula allow for increased penetration of the active ingredient through skin and skin appendages. The positively charged active ingredients are either dissolved in the vehicle directly or dissolved in a plurality of beads suspended in the vehicle. The bead structure minimizes the molecular diffusion of the positively charged active ingredient and a catalytic species through the bead structure, thus stabilizes the positively charged active ingredient inside the bead by impeding the interaction of the positively charged active ingredient and the catalytic species, and thereby extending the shelf life of the positively charged active ingredient.

Applicant/Assignee: WISCONSIN ALUMNI RESEARCH FOUNDATION

Application No.: 12/061247   Filing Date: 02/Apr/2008

Abstract:

A method of minimizing or reducing the toxicity of a retinoid having a free carboxyl group and the resulting modified retinoids are described. The method comprises the step of esterifying the carboxyl group of the retinoid with a highly sterically hindered compound, which is preferably a secondary or tertiary alcohol. The resulting retinoid esters are rendered much less toxic than the starting or parent retinoid. This process provides a retinoid ester analog of reduced toxicity so that it may be administered orally with minimal side effects and with a much greater therapeutic window. The modified retinoid compounds are useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of all diseases and disorders where retinoid compounds have been shown effective.

Title: Short bio-active peptides for cellular and immunological modulation

Applicant/Assignee: HELIX BIOMEDIX, INC

Application No.: 12/005653   Filing Date: 27/Dec/2007

Abstract:

Peptides having four to fourteen residues are disclosed that possess biological activity. These peptides constitute short fragments of the peptide HB-107 (SEQ ID NO:1), which itself is a fragment of the antimicrobial protein cecropin B, and exhibit cell stimulatory, migratory and anti-inflammatory properties. As keratinocytes are especially sensitive to these effects, the disclosed peptides comprise a useful agent for the medical treatment of injury to the skin, such as from diabetic ulcers. The peptides also are effective in preventing and reversing skin surface damage resulting from various environmental insults. Importantly, the therapeutic effects of the peptides manifest at concentrations equal to or greater than those of peptide HB-107, and thus represent a less expensive, more versatile means for developing effective therapies.

Methods for the production and use of these peptides are also disclosed.

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/813644   Filing Date: 11/Jan/2006

Abstract:

The present invention relates to a composition for the skin whitening and wrinkle improvement, comprising an extract of Vaccinium uliginosum as an active ingredient. The Vaccinium uliginosum extract has the effects of inhibiting and scavenging reactive oxygen species produced in skin tissue as a result of ultraviolet irradiation to the skin, effectively inhibiting tyrosinase activity to inhibit the production of melanin in melanin cells, inhibiting the secretion of cytokines in keratinocytes, promoting the production of procollagen, and inhibiting the decomposition of collagen. Thus, the extract will be useful for the prevention of skin photo aging caused by ultraviolet radiation, the enhancement of skin whitening and the improvement of wrinkles. In addition, the Vaccinium uliginosum extract is suitable to use as a component for improving skin wrinkles in cosmetics, foods and drugs, because the Vaccinium uliginosum extract can achieve the effect of improving skin conditions, even when it is applied to the skin or used internally.

The Wound dressing material is absorbent and acts as a substrate for antimicrobial and antiprotease agents as well as bioactive agents. More generally, this invention relates to methods and compositions for materials having a non-leaching coating that has antimicrobial properties. The coating is applied to substrates such as gauze-type wound dressings, powders and other substrates. Covalent, non-leaching, non-hydrolyzable bonds are formed between the substrate and the polymer molecules that form the coating. A high concentration of anti-microbial groups on multi-length polymeric molecules and relatively long average chain lengths, contribute to an absorbent or superabsorbent surface with a high level antimicrobial efficacy. Utilization of non-leaching coatings having a plurality of anionic or cationic sites is used according to this invention to bind a plurality of oppositely charged biologically or chemically active compounds, and to release the bound oppositely charged biologically or chemically active compounds from said substrate over a period of time to achieve desired objectives as diverse as improved wound healing to reduction in body odor.

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/681509   Filing Date: 02/Mar/2007

Abstract:

A novel method and system is disclosed to realistically simulate the progress or worsening of facial skin features that contribute to the overall look and condition of the skin. The method utilizes two close-up photographs of the face, one is captured with a digital camera in standard white light, and the other is captured with the same camera in UV light. Then, the method processes these images to simulate the progress or worsening of the major skin features: hyperpigmented spots, wrinkles and small texture features. The worsening of these features simulates facial skin aging due to prolonged exposures to sunlight, biological aging or degradation of the skin health. The progress of these features simulates the improvement of facial skin in terms of overall look and healthiness as though the patient has gone through a treatment. Therefore, the present invention discloses a series of methods that are useful in dermatology, cosmetics and computer animations.

Abstract:

A nose guard mask made from thin polymeric film has a nostril filter element permanently bonded thereto. The remaining mask portion is coated with a skin nourishing moist cream. When the mask is applied to the nose of the user, the nostril filters line up with nose nostrils of the user. The mask portion is attached to the user's face by surface tension forces of the skin nourishing, moist cream that emits a pleasant fragrance to block unwanted odors. The mask is unobtrusive, having a relatively small size and designed color that make it barely visible. It provides nourishment to the skin of the user, and filters dust, pollen, infectious bacteria and viruses to thereby protect the wearer against infections caused by germs. A nose bridge bendable strip may be adhesively attached to the polymeric film at the bridge location to provide additional support for the mask. The ends of the bendable strip may be adhesively coated on both ends to act as a nasal dilator.

Title: GROWTH FACTOR MEDIATED COSMECEUTICALS AND USE THEREOF TO ENHANCE SKIN QUALITY

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 12/052672   Filing Date: 20/Mar/2008

Abstract:

It has been discovered that vascular endothelial growth factor ("VEGF") promotes migration of activated (but not differentiating) keratinocytes to skin. This growth factor specifically increases migration of keratinocytes of the "wounded skin" phenotype but does not have significant effects upon differentiated keratinocytes. It also increases collagen deposition and reduces wrinkles, enhances skin quality, and increases skin thickness to normal levels in individuals where skin has thinned due to age or disorder such as diabetes. It is particularly well suited for use as cosmeceuticals when applied in purified form and in known amounts. The data presented in the examples demonstrate efficacy and specificity of VEGF in enhancing migration of normal human keratinocytes as well as formation of new granulation tissue including collagen formation. VEGF induces keratinocyte and fibroblast migration, formation of new tissue, and not only induces deposition of collagen but improves alignment of the collagen fibers. Accordingly, this growth factor is highly suitable for use as a cosmeceutical, especially for skin resurfacing and reduction in wrinkles.

Title: Inductive heating of tissues using alternating magnetic fields and uses thereof

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 12/080897   Filing Date: 07/Apr/2008

Abstract:

The present invention improves the cosmetic appearance of skin by controllably heating a superficial layer of skin thereby inducing acute tissue contraction or shrinkage and a wound response leading to the production of biomolecules, all of which result in improved cosmesis. The invention incorporates a source of radiofrequency electrical energy coupled to coil, with requisite impedance matching network, thereby resulting in the production of an alternating magnetic field. When tissue is brought into proximity of the alternating magnetic field, inductive heating of the tissue results as a consequence of either or both of dipole formation and oscillation, and eddy current formation. Optionally, cooling is provided to remove heat from the coil, the source of radiofrequency electrical energy, or the surface of the skin alone or in combination. The invention exhibits the significant benefits of, among other things, being non-invasive, not requiring electrical contact with the body of the subject, and providing controllable heating only to a thin layer of tissue.

Title: Cooling product

Applicant/Assignee: KIMBERLY-CLARK WORLDWIDE, INC

Application No.: 11/799110   Filing Date: 30/Apr/2007

Abstract:

A cooling product (e.g., pad, bandage, headband, wrap, cloth, and so forth) that contains a gel configured to cool the skin of a body part when placed adjacent thereto is provided. The gel is contained within a composite that has two or more fibrous layers structured to provide enhanced distribution of the gel therethrough. More specifically, a first fibrous layer may rapidly distribute the gel in primarily the -z direction (direction of thickness) to a second fibrous layer, which then distributes it primarily in the -x and -y directions. The second fibrous layer may then be placed adjacent to a user's skin to provide the desired cooling. Because the gel is distributed primarily in the -x and -y directions, however, direct contact between the gel and skin is limited, thereby reducing the "sticky" feel normally associate with such gels. The cooling product is also flexible, and may be easily adapted to a body part.
