  • Patent number: 11911496
    Abstract: The invention relates to stable, mild and moisturizing lamellar liquid cleansing compositions which possess a lotion-like appearance conveying signals of enhanced moisturization. However, these liquids often are either unstable or cause poor lather production and other sensory deficits The use of a specific ratio of total acyl isethionates to acyl glutamates or other divalent anionic surfactant in a structured liquid product improve stability and lather production, mildness and acceptable odor.

  • Patent number: 11879114
    Abstract: Natural green, environmentally friendly solid soap compositions and methods of manufacturing and using the same are provided with easy dispersal in water and self thickening to produce liquid soaps. The natural soap compositions contain potassium fatty acid carboxylates and preferably potassium chloride but may alternately contain potassium bromide or potassium iodide. There is a need for natural, green, environmentally friendly soaps as well as eco green packaging. Recent systems have managed eco packaging but continue to rely on synthetic non-natural fossil fuel based soaps. The inventive natural solid soaps do not require plastic or similar packaging for liquids and can be shipped as a solid bar, granules, powder, etc. and diluted very easily by the end user. Preferably the soaps are small bars that easily fit into a dispenser bottle offering versatility in concentration, lather, and thickness.
