Comestic preparation containing a metallic pigment
The invention relates to a cosmetic preparation containing a metallic effect pigment which consists of a metal substrate having a layer enclosing the substrate. Said layer is produced in a sol/gel method, has a barrier effect against sweat and saliva and prevents a direct contact between skin and metallic substrate, the metallic pigment being hydrophilic. The inventive preparation can be in the form of a cream, a lotion, an eyeshadow, a nail varnish, a lipstick, a mascara, a gel, a make-up formulation or a self-tanning cream or lotion.
Skin lightening agents, compositions and methods
Cosmetic compositions and methods, particularly for skin lightening, using a compound, preferably 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate, and derivatives as specified in the patent as skin lightening agents alone or in combination with other skin benefit agents and together with a cosmetic vehicle.
Dye composition comprising at least one fluorescent dye and a non-associative thickening polymer for human keratin materials, process therefor, and method thereof
The disclosure relates to a composition comprising at least one fluorescent dye and at least one non-associative thickening polymer, to processes using such a composition, and to devices comprising such a composition. The disclosure also relates to processes and methods for dyeing human keratin materials, for example artificially dyed or pigmented hair and dark skin, with a lightening effect, using compositions comprising at least one fluorescent dye and at least one non-associative thickening polymer.

Method for production of mixed polymers containing silicon
Polymer dispersions of polymers derived from silicone macromers and ethylenically unsaturated monomers are capable of incorporating large amounts of chemically bonded macromer, when the silicone macromer and part of the unsaturated monomer are polymerized in aqueous medium as an initial charge with an oil-soluble initiator, and the remaining monomers are fed in and polymerized using a water-soluble initiator. The dispersions may be dried to form water-redispersible polymer powders.
