Cosmetic composition comprising a polyglycerolated silicone elastomer
The invention relates to a cosmetic composition comprising a polyglycerolated silicone elastomer for application onto keratinous materials, especially the skin or the lips, for purposes of care or makeup. In addition to at least one polyglycerolated silicone elastomer in a cosmetically suitable medium, the composition also contains at least one ingredient chosen from each of the following: an emulsifying elastomer different from the polyglycerolated silicone elastomer; a film forming polymer; a water-soluble humectant; a coated pigment; a structuring agent; a photoprotective system capable of screening out UV radiation; a nonemulsifying spherical silicone elastomer; a fiber; a noncross-linked surfactant; a hydrocarbyl-functional siloxane; a low molecular weight phenyl-substituted siloxane; and a cosmetically-suitable active ingredient. The noncross-linked surfactant must not be chosen from the polyglycerolated noncross-linked silicone surfactant(s).

Stable cosmetic composition comprising a self-tanning agent
Stable topical compositions having a pH of from 3.5 to 4.5 comprising a self-tanning agent, a polymer and a polyhydric alcohol humectant. These compositions are highly stable and deliver high levels of active self-tanning agent to the skin upon topical application.
The novel amide compound described is useful as a gelling agent having a high ability to gelatinize oily bases. It has been found that a gel composition prepared from this amide compound and an oily base has a strong gel strength and good transparency, and that the gel composition has enough strength to be used in cosmetic preparations that are easily applied to skin when made, for example, into the form of a stick.
