The current patent discloses sunscreen compositions containing one or more photoactive compounds, such as a dibenzoylmethane derivative UVA filter compound, and a derivative of methoxy crylene. One aspect of the compositions described is that a sunscreen formula including a dibenzoylmethane derivative such as 4-(1,1-dimethylethyl)-4'-methoxydibenzoylmethane, and a photoactive compound such as avobenzon,e is made more photostable. Also disclosed are methods for filtering out UV light from human skin including the step of applying the sunscreen formula to the skin.
Modified variant Bowman Birk protease inhibitors
US Patent 7947475
Publication date: May 24, 2011
Assignee: Danisco US Inc.
This invention relates to modified variant Bowman Birk Protease Inhibitor proteins (BBPIs) that comprise peptides that bind target proteins, and that are further modified to have greater protease inhibitory activity and/or be produced at greater yields than the unmodified BBPIs. The invention encompasses polynucleotide constructs and expression vectors containing polynucleotide sequences that encode the modified variant BBPIs, the transformed host cells that express and produce the modified variant BBPIs, the modified variant BBPI proteins, the compositions comprising the modified variant BBPIs, and the methods for making and using the modified variant BBPIs in personal care.
In some embodiments, the skin care compositions are for therapeutic use in improving the appearance of skin in a subject suffering from a skin disorder. In another embodiment, the composition is a skin care composition, including: moisturizing body washes, skin protective creams, anti-acne treatments, facial toners, exfoliating creams, tanning compositions, skin lightening compositions, skin redness reduction compositions, sunscreens, radioprotectives, etc.. Radioprotectives are chosen from non-water-resistant sunscreens, very water-resistant sunscreens, and water-in-silicone sunscreens.
