As the urea compound, an alkyl group- or cyclohexyl group-terminated diurea compound, or, particularly, a diurea compound in which the diisocyanate component is 4,4'-diphenylmethane diisocyanate is preferably used. In a rolling bearing which is lubricated by the grease composition, the acoustic performance is largely improved by a synergistic action of the lithium soap and the urea compound, and simultaneously also the anti-fretting property is enhanced by an action of the urea compound.

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.

Abstract:

The present invention provides supported peroxides, and a method of forming supported peroxides. Supported peroxides according to the invention are solid particles that include an organic peroxide and a metallic soap. In accordance with the method of the invention, supported peroxides are preferably formed by dispersing a mixture that includes at least one peroxide and at least one C4 to C30 carboxylic acid into an aqueous solution that includes a compound that is capable of reacting with the C4 to C30 carboxylic acid to form a water soluble soap. Dispersing the mixture into the aqueous solution results in the formation of an emulsion.

A polyvalent metal compound that is capable of reacting with the water soluble soap to form a water insoluble metallic soap is then added to the emulsion, which converts the water soluble soap into a water insoluble metallic soap that precipitates from the solution. The organic peroxide is entrained within the precipitate.

This invention is directed to detergent compositions which employ sulfonated alkyltoluenes as surfactants, wherein the sulfonated alkyltoluenes have a higher content of the sulfonated 2-phenyl alkyltoluenes isomers than was previously available in sulfonated alkyltoluene surfactants of the prior art. Cleaning compositions according to the invention are more effective as cleaning agents over their counterparts of prior art which contain sulfonated alkyltoluenes having lower contents of the 2-phenyl alkyltoluene isomers, owing to an unexpected increase in tolerance of water hardness minerals normally associated with precipitation of the active detergent agent. Solid sulfonate salts of alkyltoluenes are also provided, including dry cleaning formulations containing same. The alkyltoluenes of this invention may be combined with alkylbenzene surfactants in order to provide detergent blends having increased water hardness tolerance, lower Krafft temperature, and increased cleaning performance over what was previously afforded by the prior art.

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.

Title: Fragrance delivery system for surface cleaners and conditioners

Applicant/Assignee: FIRMENICH SA

Application No.: 11/408179   Filing Date: 21/Apr/2006

Abstract:

We claim a fragrance delivery system consisting of a mixture of various polymers oligomers and stabilizers capable of forming a surfactant complex gel dispersion when combined with a cleansing surfactant base and yielding high levels of fragrance deposition onto the skin, hair or other surface such as a textile, from a cleansing or softening consumer product comprising a micelle forming surfactant. The internal phase or dispersible phase of this surfactant complex gel dispersion (GLPPD) is made of a mixture of various immiscible polymers, oligomers and stabilizers forming a complex gel with the surfactant platform and whose ratio and composition are selected to dissolve preferentially a wide range of fragrance raw materials.

The selection criteria are, first, that the fragrance should present a higher fragrance partitioning ratio into the surfactant complex gel phase than into the free micelles of the surfactant, second, that the surfactant complex gel should not be further solubilized by the free micelles, and third, that the polymer mixture selected should complex with the surfactant system. The external or dispersing phase of the GLPPD is made of a single cationic polymer or a mixture of cationic polymers that have been hydrated and associated with the surfactant to form a complex gel structure that cannot be further solubilized by the free micelles.

Title: Hydroscopic polymer gels for easier cleaning

Applicant/Assignee: THE CLOROX COMPANY

Application No.: 11/176472   Filing Date: 06/Jul/2005

Abstract:

Hydroscopic polymer gels can be formed by applying a polymer to a surface and allowing water to be sequestered from the atmosphere into the polymer. The polymer gels are formed using methods and compositions employing water soluble or water dispersible copolymers having: (i) a first monomer that is acidic and is capable of forming an anionic charge in the composition

(ii) a second monomer that is amphipathic

(iii) optionally, a third monomer that is hydrophobic

and (iv) optionally, a fourth monomer that that has a permanent cationic charge or that is capable of forming a cationic charge on protonation. The polymer gels are particularly substantive and effective at modifying surfaces such as glass and hydrophobic polymeric substrates to provide soap scum and soil resistance, and easier next time cleaning benefits.
