Skin care fabric with cyclodextrin fixation: Yamamoto et al. have published on a complex fixation technology for the production of a functional skin care fabric.15 The practical application of the fixation technology was examined using cyclodextrin, which was stabilized and fixed on the surface of the synthetic fiber using a mixture of isocyanate and glyoxal cross-linking agents. During development, the process was put into practical use using a production machine. The woven fabric was fixed with vitamin E by means of the described technology, and the resulting fabric provided skin care benefits. Integral collagen treatment: Puig et al. describe a multifunctional ingredient for an integral collagen treatment.16 The ingredientb is comprised of active peptides and proteins that improve overall collagen quality via three primary mechanisms: decreased synthesis, altered fibril organization and increased destruction. By combining actives to tackle each problem independently, the researchers found it possible to create a trifunctional product that provided significant antiaging activity.
Dipolar ionic compounds: Evonik Goldschmidt GmbH disclosed dipolar ionic compounds, sample formulations, and use of the compounds in cosmetics.17 Formic acid and 3-dimethylaminopropylamine were reacted under a nitrogen atmosphere at 175°C for 4–5 hr and the obtained amide amine was reacted with sodium monochloroacetate. The result, in aqueous solution, was a product consisting of 38.5% component along with 11.5% sodium chloride and 50% water. A test formulation was created with 1.0% w/w of the above product solution, 3% polyglyceryl-3-methylglucose distearate, 2.0% glyceryl stearate, 1.0% stearyl alcohol, 5.0% cetearyl ethylhexanoate, 14.0% mineral oil, and water to 100%.
