Self-heating shave gel products
US Patent 7854349
Publication date: Dec. 21, 2010
Assignee: The Gillette Company
Self-heating, post-foaming shave gels and shave gel products are provided in this patent. In some implementations, the shave gels include a non-ionic emulsifier system, e.g., including one or more fatty alcohol ethoxylates. The invention features self-heating post-foaming (or self-foaming) shave gels that are heated after dispensing by an exothermic reaction that occurs when two components of the shave gel that are separated prior to delivery are mixed during or after dispensing. The shave gel composition is divided into two separate components: a) an oxidant component containing a first shave gel base and the oxidizing agent, and b) a reductant component containing a second shave gel base and the reducing agent. Any ingredients that could be easily oxidized by the oxidizing agent during the product shelf life are included in the reductant component.
