  • Patent number: 11535815
    Abstract: A composition for removing a cosmetic material from a substrate includes glycerin ethoxylate and linear alkyl benzene sulfonate (LABS). An application of the composition to a stain including a deposit of a cosmetic material at a white polyester-cotton blend fabric to provide a stained polyester-cotton blend fabric exhibits an increased stain removal measured as reflectance observed at 460 nm by at least about 35% compared to a reflectance observed at the stained polyester-cotton blend fabric prior to the application. A treatment including the composition applied to the stained polyester-cotton blend fabric provides a reflectance at the stained polyester-cotton blend fabric that is greater than a reflectance observed at a white polyester-cotton blend fabric stained with a deposit of a cosmetic material and that has been treated with either the glycerin ethoxylate alone or that has been treated with the linear alkyl benzene sulfonate alone.

  • Patent number: 11479743
    Abstract: Disclosed are a natural soap composition having elasticity, viscoelasticity and ductility without containing polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and borax, and a method of preparing the same. The soap composition does not contain a plastic material (PVA), borax, a fungicide, a plasticizer or the like, unlike conventional plastic clay toys, and is thus environmentally friendly and safe, and has a cleaning effect. In addition, the composition has the advantages of better elasticity, viscoelasticity and ductility than general soaps or other elastic soap compositions. In addition, even after the composition is molded into a particular shape, it can be transformed into a variety of shapes, can be used as a toy owing to the maximized tactile stimulation thereof, and provides effects such as psychological stability, stress relief and sensory development.
