  • Patent number: 11968983
    Abstract: The present disclosure discloses a tobacco leaf foliar spraying substance for reducing harmful ingredients in cheroot, a method for reducing carcinogenic components in flue-cured tobacco leaves and flue-cured tobacco shreds. The tobacco leaf foliar spraying substance contains a lotus leaf extract, the harmful chemical ingredients comprise N-nitrosonornicotine, 4-(N-methyl-nitrosamine)-1-(3-pyridinyl)-1-butanone, N-nitrosoanabasine and N-nitrosoanatabine. Foliar spraying is performed on a fertile field by using the lotus leaf extract before tobacco leaves are harvested and modulated, which not only significantly promotesagronomic characters and economic traits of tobacco and alleviates tobacco leaf browning but also effectively reduces harmful chemical ingredients unique to tobacco leaves, such as nitrosamine and nicotine.

  • Patent number: 11213464
    Abstract: A solid temporal colorimetric hydrogel cosmetic composition includes 15 to 99.90 wt % of the water phase part and 0.10 to 85 wt % of the oil phase part, having a refractive index difference of 0 to 0.02 therebetween, and having a color change according to variations in a refractive index difference between the water phase part and the oil phase difference when applied to the skin. The cosmetic composition not only has flexibility through irradiation of gamma-rays, but also enables an optimal application time of the cosmetic composition to be visually confirmed through a color change from transparency to ivory white due to a change in the refractive index difference caused by absorbency and volatilization of water when applying the composition to the skin. The cosmetic composition is capable of improving quality of a product although a preservative irritating to the skin is not added.
