Title: Sweat control system

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 09/271007   Filing Date: 17/Mar/1999

Abstract:

A sweat control or hyperhidrosis treatment device for providing iontophoresis of antiperspirant into a region of a human body includes a DC power source, a controller and a pair of electrodes. The electrodes are mounted in generally close proximity to one another and are separated by an insulating member. The electrodes generally carry an antiperspirant element and are responsive to an a current signal through the controller. The electrodes are generally formed of aluminum and have a rough surface to increase the number of aluminum ions available for infusion into the region. The controller converts the DC signal to an AC waveform. The electrodes are of opposite polarity with respect to each other such that during the first portion of the AC waveform, current is conducted through the region in a first direction from the first electrode to the second electrode. During the second portion of the AC waveform, current is conducted through the region in a second direction from the second electrode to the first electrode. The device further includes a pair of pads. Each of the pads is positioned in adjacent contact with one of the electrodes and preferably carries sodium salicylate to increase the permeability of the region. The electrodes are sized and arranged so that the tissue to be treated can extend across the insulating member and simultaneously contact both of the pads. The pads generally carry an aluminum-based antiperspirant such as aluminum-chlorohydrate or aluminum-zirconium or may include an anticholinergic substance.

Abstract:

Antiperspirant emulsions which exhibit excellent phase stability even in the presence of an effective concentration of antiperspirant salts in solution and which are thickened are obtainable by dispersing a hydratable polymer and particularly an amphoteric or cationic modified starch in an aqueous emulsion forming a viscous emulsion, often at an elevated temperature, subjecting the emulsion to high shear, thereby reducing the droplet size of the dispersed oil phase, bringing the emulsion to below 40 DEG C. and introducing the antiperspirant, preferably in aqueous solution. The viscous emulsion subjected to high shear mixing desirably has a Sheer Stress of 10 to 500 Pa. The resultant emulsions show good phase stability even when they contain aluminium/ zirconium antiperspirant salts that promote instability and even at elevated storage temperatures such as at 50 DEG C.

Abstract:

The dispenser has a mesh fabric applicator surface which provides for a uniform flow of the semisolid substance to be dispensed, but does not have the problem of post-extrusion flow. That is, there is not required such an overpressure to start the flow of the substance, with this overpressure remaining after use of the applicator and causing the semisolid substance to extrude through the applicator surface after use. The mesh fabric surface can be a woven or nonwoven fabric, in one or more plies. Nonwoven fabrics include apertured extruded films. The mesh fabric is heat bonded to the upper frame of the applicator and can have an underlying support. The mesh fabric can yield to follow the contours of a skin surface, but will not be permanently distorted. There is provided a surface for a dispenser for a viscous semisolid substance where there is improved shear of the semisolid substance and a more uniform application. Also, due to the more uniform cross-sectional dimension of the pores, there is obviated the problem of post-extrusion flow.

Applicant/Assignee: DOW CORNING TORAY SILICONE CO., LTD

Application No.: 09/707512   Filing Date: 07/Nov/2000

Abstract:

A cosmetic consists of a cosmetic raw material in the form of an emulsion of silicone or organic oil containing crosslinked particles mixed with other cosmetic raw materials. Its touch on fingers and skin is good, spreading and feel during use are good, and it can also prevent unruly hair, stray hair, and tangling of hair, so hair can easily be arranged. It imparts a fresh, dry feeling without any stickiness. The cosmetic raw material consists of the silicone or organic oil emulsion containing crosslinked particles with a mean particle diameter of 0.05 to 100 mum. Crosslinking is obtained by an hydrosilylation of liquid crosslinkable compositions consisting of (A) organic compounds with at least two aliphatic unsaturated bonds per molecule, (B) silicon containing organic compounds with at least two hydrogen atoms bonded to silicon atoms in each molecule, and (C) hydrosilylation reaction catalysts. The resulting crosslinked particles are contained in the droplets of the silicone oil or the organic oil which have mean particle sizes of 0.1 to 500 mum, and which droplets are in turn dispersed in water.

Application No.: 09/978954   Filing Date: 17/Oct/2001

Abstract:

Cellobiose esters and particularly alpha cellobiose octanonanoate has been found able to structure water-immiscible liquids well, and in particular can produce clear structured emulsions. However, such emulsions tend to lose clarity or structural strength during storage. Deviating from alpha-cellobiose octanonanoate can result in impaired clarity and/or impaired hardness of emulsion sticks. However, acylated cellobiose which contains acyl substituents of formula -O-CO-R in which R represents an n-octyl residue and the percentage Y of the nonanoate acyl substituent -O-CO-R at the anomeric carbon is at least 60% and the percentage A of alpha anomer is greater than the anomer and not higher than A=74.5 +0.2Y when Y is up to 92% and not higher than A=161-0.74Y when Y is greater than 92% offers the production of sticks combining structurant stability with product clarity and hardness.

Abstract:

Antiperspirant actives that produce practically no visible white residue, even against a black background is provided by the reduction of the particle size, using a refractive index modifier, to a point where the antiperspirant active on application provides no discernible whiteness.When formulated into an antiperspirant stick, the antiperspirant actives produce an improved combination of functional properties, including excellent antiperspirancy, smooth skin feel, nontacky, quick drying and leave no visible residue.The exceptionally high surface area of the antiperspirant active results in rapid and efficient delivery of the active to the sweat glands and possible absorption. The absence or reduced quantity of suspending and flow enhancing agents, of gellant and surfactant, is believed to improve the antiperspirant active's ability to physically reach the sweat glands and improve efficacy.

Title: Fragrance friendly and cost effective antiperspirant actives and method of making the same

Applicant/Assignee: REHEIS, INC

Application No.: 10/865397   Filing Date: 10/Jun/2004

Abstract:

A cost effective process is provided for making stable, efficacious, amino acid and polyhydric alcohol free concentrated aqueous aluminum zirconium salt solutions. Absence of amino acid, low iron content and low trace metal impurity levels improve compatibility with fragrances and minimizes the probability of the product color change and possibly fabric staining significantly. The novel aluminum zirconium actives also minimize iron contribution to underarm area that supports growth of microflora which is responsible for axillary malodour by the biotransformation of nonodorous precursors present in perspiration. The astringent complexes of the present invention may be obtained in solution or dry powder form. As a result, the complexes are satisfactory for use in any of wide variety of conventional antiperspirant forms.

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: Personal care compositions comprising coated/treated metal silicate absorbent particles

Applicant/Assignee: J.M. HUBER CORPORATION

Application No.: 11/050238   Filing Date: 03/Feb/2005

Abstract:

Coated particles of metal (such as calcium) silicate that exhibit excellent odor neutralization and sebum absorption properties when present within certain cosmetic and/or personal care formulations and suspensions are provided. Uncoated calcium silicate exhibits a high pH level that may have a deleterious effect upon such cosmetic and/or personal care compositions, thereby rendering the overall composition ineffective for its intended purpose, particularly if the calcium silicate is present in its usual state at high loading levels. Alternatively, if certain materials present within personal care compositions exhibit a sufficiently low pH level, the effectiveness of such calcium silicates may be compromised as well.

Such novel coated/treated calcium silicates thus permit high loadings of this beneficial odor neutralizing/sebum absorbing additive within cosmetic and/or personal care formulations without causing any appreciable instability issues or viscosity modification concerns or allow for coexistence with such low pH materials without any appreciable reduction in performance capabilities of the calcium silicates themselves. Certain personal care compositions comprising these novel coated calcium silicate particulates are encompassed within this invention as well.
