The present invention relates to polyglycerol partial esters of polyhydroxystearic acid and polyfunctional carboxylic acids that are obtainable by esterification of a polyglycerol mixture with polyhydroxystearic acid, where N=1 to 10 units, and either dimer fatty acids that have been obtained by catalytic dimerization of unsaturated fatty acids having 12 to 22 C atoms and have an average functionality of 2 to 3, or with aliphatic, linear or branched dicarboxylic acids having a chain length of 2 to 16 C atoms and additionally saturated or unsaturated, linear or branched fatty acids having 6 to 22 C atoms, the degree of esterification of the polyglycerol mixture being between 20% and 75%. The present invention also relates to the preparation thereof and their use as w/o emulsifiers in cosmetic or pharmaceutical formulations and as auxiliaries for dispersing inorganic micropigments in oily dispersions.
Temperature-changing wet wipes dispensing system
US Patent 7850041
Publication date: Dec. 14, 2010
Inventors: Amundson, John David; Abuto, Frank P.; Clare, Timothy P.; Foley, Edward John; Winder, Eric Michael; Schmidt, Paul R.; Joseph, Wael R.; and Mcdonald, Duane Lyle
The present disclosure relates to systems for dispensing wet wipes that are capable of changing temperature upon use. In one embodiment, the dispensing system includes a wet wipe container and a lotion container, wherein the wet wipe container contains a lotion that is kept separate from the wet wipes until the wet wipe is dispensed from the wet wipe container. The lotion includes a microencapsulated delivery vehicle that contains a temperature change agent capable of generating a temperature change upon contact with an aqueous solution. Once the wet wipe is dispensed from the system, an applicating device can apply the lotion to the wet wipe to facilitate contact between the temperature change agent in the microencapsulated delivery vehicle and the aqueous solution of the wet wipe.
Metal clad ceramic cosmetic applicator for chilling effect
WIPO Patent Application WO/2010/141159
Publication date: Dec. 09, 2010
Assignee: ELC Management LLC and Neuner, Charles P.
This patent describes a cosmetic applicator formed from ceramic material covered in a metal sheath. The tip is designed to provide a product chilling effect when the user applies creams, lotions, treatment products, etc. The applicator is provided with a relatively substantial mass of ceramic material so that it has a greater thermal capacity than the dose of cosmetic and the application area combined. The tip therefore provides a relatively larger product-chilling effect to both the dose of cosmetic applied and to the user's skin in the application area. The applicator also provides a vehicle by which formulations may be activated or enhanced by specific compounds in the ceramic material from which the applicator tip is comprised.
