  • Publication number: 20240156692
    Abstract: To provide a second agent for a coating-type body corrective film formation agent that can shorten the cross-linking reaction time in film formation and improve the durability of the film to be obtained. An oil-in-water composition of the present disclosure comprises a dispersion medium containing water, and oil droplets dispersed in this dispersion medium, wherein the oil droplets comprise an oil, and a catalyst that serves as a cross-linking ingredient, wherein the oil-in-water composition is used as a second agent for a coating-type body corrective film formation agent comprising a first agent comprising a cross-linking reactive ingredient that constitutes a body corrective film; and a second agent comprising a cross-linking ingredient for cross-linking the cross-linking reactive ingredient.

  • Publication number: 20230218501
    Abstract: Compositions for application to skin of a subject comprising (a) an unsaturated organopolymer, (b) a hydride functionalized polysiloxane and (c) an environment-responsive agent that is capable of transporting out of the composition or facilitates out-transport of one or more beneficial agents from the composition after the composition is applied to a subject. Alternatively, the compositions comprise (a) a bifunctional organopolysiloxane polymer having one unsaturated group and one hydride and (b) the environment-responsive agent. The environment-responsive agent may be a volatile agent and the compositions can be used to create a thin film on the skin of a subject wherein the volatile agent is capable of transporting out of the film. In one embodiment, the volatile agent is transported out of the composition by convection. In one embodiment, the volatile agent is transported out of the composition by diffusion.

  • Patent number: 11660313
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are compositions that can form a covering, layer, film, device, and/or prosthetic skin that can be comfortably worn to provide skin barrier function, skin hydration and therapeutic and aesthetic benefits. The present invention provides novel compositions that have low tackiness and form quickly, resulting in a wearable, comfortable (maintains temperature and humidity), breathable, thin, optically invisible, cosmetically elegant, flexible, stretchable, elastic and body-movement conforming, yet long-lasting covering, layer, film, device, and/or prosthetic skin on the skin or any other body surface. The present invention provides novel compositions that can form a covering, layer, film, device, and/or prosthetic skin that works for extended periods in excess of about 24 hours, while retaining function during and after exercising, showering and swimming (in sea-water, fresh water and chlorinated water), steam room (heat at high humidity), and sauna (heat at low humidity).

  • Publication number: 20220176013
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are compositions that can be used to create a thin film on the skin of a subject in a single application step to the skin of the subject. More specifically, a composition provided herein does not have to be stored in multiple compartments, nor mixed with another composition or component before application to the skin. Instead, a single composition can be manufactured, stored in a single compartment, and then applied to the skin of a subject to create a film on the skin of the subject. In certain embodiments, because there is no need to mix a composition provided herein prior to application to the skin, the container comprising a composition provided herein may also include an applicator suitable for application of the composition to the skin.

  • Patent number: 8562836
    Abstract: The present invention relates to synthetic methods for grafting hydrophilic chains onto polymers, particularly hydrophobic polymers such as poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC), poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF), and chlorinated polypropylene (cPP). Resulting polymers include comb polymers which can have a microphase-separated structure of hydrophilic domains provided by the hydrophilic chains. Articles prepared from these comb polymers, particularly derived from PVDF, include membranes for water filtration in which the hydrophilic domains provide a pathway for water transport. PVC can be plasticized by grafting the PVC with hydrophilic chains. In addition, such articles, particularly articles having biomedical applications, can display anti-thrombogenic properties.

  • Patent number: 7368505
    Abstract: This invention relates to methods of making graft copolymers, and articles having such graft copolymers. The methods may provide better control than in radicalization or photoinitiated polymerization techniques. For example, a graft copolymer can be prepared by reacting an alkoxide ion with a polymer. The alkoxide, in turn, can be provided by any suitable technique, for example, by reacting an alcohol with a base. In some embodiments of the invention, the graft copolymers may be a normally hydrophobic polymer, such as a polysulfone, that has been made more hydrophilic due to the attachment of hydrophilic side groups such as polyethylene glycol or polypropylene glycol. The copolymers of the invention have many uses, for example, in films or porous membranes.
