Title: PROCESS TO FORM FABRIC SOFTENING PARTICLE, PARTICLE OBTAINED AND ITS USE

Applicant/Assignee: UNILEVER PLC, UNILEVER NV, HINDUSTAN LEVER LIMITED

Application No.: EP2006/006698   Filing Date: 06/Jul/2006

Abstract:This invention relates to the incorporation of single and double emulsions into a cross-linking polysaccharide matrix selected from alginate and carrageenan, particularly when cured in a saline solution. Beading and extrusion were used as encapsulation processes. Particles were obtained containing 54 to 88% oil. The double emulsion is known to deliver rinse conditioner softness to the wash. The problem has been to incorporate it into a matrix that will allow redispersion in the wash. The emulsions incorporated redisperse in the same manner as they did before incorporation. The technology has been tested for a wide range of oils, however, specific combinations of oils and kappa carrageenan yield excellent particles containing high oil levels, which are suitable for incorporation into detergent powders, with good softening performance.

Applicant/Assignee: LG HOUSEHOLD & HEALTH CARE LTD

Application No.: KR2007/000775   Filing Date: 14/Feb/2007

Abstract:Disclosed is a method for manufacturing a mixed surfactant system. The present invention comprises steps of preparing a cationic compound formed by heat-reacting a tertiary amine having a specific formula with a polyhydroxy compound having a specific formula

and mixing an anionic surfactant with the cationic compound. The manufacturing method according to the present invention can be effectively used for manufacturing a mixed surfactant system which is useful to the detergent composition since the cationic compound having a specific formula can be easily manufactured in a high yield. The cationic compound in the mixed surfactant system prepared according to the manufacturing method of the present invention can be effectively used for detergents having a solid, liquid, gel or paste type since the cationic compound can enhance cleaning power, initial foam- forming ability, foam stability and stability in hard water of an anionic surfactant, and also lower surface tension and critical micelle concentration.

Application No.: US2007/017268   Filing Date: 01/Aug/2007

Abstract:The present invention relates to benefit agent containing delivery particles, compositions comprising said particles, and processes for making and using the aforementioned particles and compositions. When employed in compositions, for example, personal care, cleaning or fabric care compositions, such particles increase the efficiency of benefit agent delivery, there by allowing reduced amounts of benefit agents to be employed. In addition to allowing the amount of benefit agent to be reduced, such particles allow a broad range of benefit agents to be employed. The particles comprise a benefit agent composition and a wall material that at least partially surrounds said benefit agent composition, said benefit agent composition comprises at least 30 % of a first material having a CLogP of at least 2 and a boiling point of less than 280 DEG C.

Applicant/Assignee: LG HOUSEHOLD & HEALTH CARE LTD

Application No.: KR2007/006083   Filing Date: 29/Nov/2007

Abstract:The present invention relates to powder detergent granules that are substantially free of a water-insoluble component such as zeolite or silica, a method for manufacturing the powder detergent granules and a copolymer having various properties useful as a detergent component. The powder detergent granules of the present invention are substantially free of a water-insoluble component, and thus exhibit good solubility and washing performance in cold water, do not leave residue after laundry, and reduce the likelihood of a caking phenomenon during manufacture and storage. And, the powder detergent granules of the present invention are substantially free of zeolite or silica that absorbs a liquid component, but are capable of accommodating a considerable amount of liquid surfactant. Further, a copolymer comprising acrylic acid monomer unit and 2-acrylamido-2-methylpropane sulfonic acid monomer unit, an acidic water-soluble polymer of the present invention, is useful as a detergent component in various aspects.

Abstract:The present invention provides a process for making a shaped marbled detergent bar including the step of feeding an extrudable non-soap detergent composition into an extruder comprising at least one screw rotatably mounted within a barrel having inlet and outlet, where rotation of said screw conveys said composition from the outlet into a frusto-conically converging pressure zone, which converges into at least one nozzle from which a billet of extruded detergent emerges

and an apertured plate interspersed between said outlet ad said pressure zone. Said process additionally includes the step of injecting a coloured liquid into said composition through an injection means, located upstream of said apertured plate, the pressure of injection being higher than that generated within the extruder. Furthermore, the billet produced in said process is split once parallel to the axis of said screw, by splitting means, as it is extruded from said nozzle, so as to provide suitable marbling on the billet.

Applicant/Assignee: UNILEVER PLC, UNILEVER N.V, HINDUSTAN UNILEVER LIMITED

Application No.: EP2008/060841   Filing Date: 19/Aug/2008

Abstract:A particle (preferably a core-shell encapsulate) comprising a benefit agent (preferably a perfume), said particle being bound to a non-cationic deposition aid which is substantive to polyester, wherein the non-cationic deposition aid is a polymer derivable from dicarboxylic acids and polyols. Preferably the polymer comprises units derived from (poly)ethylene glycol and terephthalate, most preferably selected from the group comprising PET/POET, PEG/POET, PET/PEG and phthalate/glycerol/ethylene glycol polymers. The invention also provides a method for producing improved benefit agent particles which comprises the step of covalently linking or co-polymerising a deposition aid which is substantive to polyester to a particle comprising the benefit agent. The particles find particular utility in laundry treatment compositions comprising (a) anionic and/or nonionic surfactant, or (b) cationic fabric conditioner and further comprising core-shell particles, wherein said particles have, incorporated in the shell a polyester- substantive deposition aid which is a phthalate containing polymer and incorporated in the core a perfume.
