  • Patent number: 10512595
    Abstract: A multi-layer product for improving the look of human skin by the steps of: apply to the skin a first layer that is a skin care composition; and applying to, and on top of, the first layer, a powder layer. The powder layer has from about 10% to about 30%, by weight of the powder layer, of substantially spherical silicone elastomer particles. The powder layer is an aqueous based composition that is an oil-in-water emulsion comprising a non-volatile oil present in a concentration level such that the weight ratio of non-volatile oil to particulate material is from about 1:10 to about 3:2. At least one of, or both the first layer and the powder layer have a contrast ratio of less than about 20.

  • Publication number: 20190192388
    Abstract: A skin smoothing film made from a skin smoothing composition that comprises sodium silicate, polyvalent silicate and water. Moreover, the film may be made from a composition that has a contraction value of from about 30% to about 160%. The film thickness is from about 5 microns to about 50 microns, preferably from about 10 microns to about 40 microns, when applied. The standard deviation of the film over the area covered is less than about 30, preferably less than about 25.

    Abstract: A multi-layer product for improving the look of human skin by the steps of: apply to the skin a first layer that is a skin care composition; and applying to, and on top of, the first layer, a powder layer. The powder layer has from about 10% to about 30%, by weight of the powder layer, of substantially spherical particles selected from the group consisting of coated or uncoated starch, silicone elastomer particles, and combinations thereof. The powder layer is an aqueous based composition that is an oil-in-water emulsion comprising a non-volatile oil present in a concentration level such that the weight ratio of non-volatile oil to particulate material is from about 1:10 to about 3:2. At least one of, or both the first layer and the powder layer have a contrast ratio of less than about 20.

  • Patent number: 9833391
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a stable personal-care composition in the form of a water-in-oil emulsion may comprise a hydrocarbon wax, a polar oil, and a non-emulsifying silicone elastomer. In another embodiment, a stable personal-care composition in the form of a water-in-oil emulsion may comprise a hydrocarbon wax and a polar oil. The weight ratio of the hydrocarbon wax to the polar oil is from about 0.01 to about 0.5. The personal-care composition allows for previously unattainable levels of polar oils and/or aqueous phase within a water-in-oil emulsion.

  • Publication number: 20170007525
    Abstract: A method of applying a high dose of a skin care active by the step of applying to human skin a liquid foamable composition that has from about 0.5% to about 7%, by weight, of surfactants that are cationic surfactants, nonionic surfactants, and mixtures thereof. The foamable composition contains from about 1% to about 15%, by weight, of a fatty alcohol, from about 5% to about 30%, by weight, of a skin care active, and water. The skin care active is preferably selected from the group consisting of niacinamide, hexyldecanol, a peptide, panthenol, undeylenoyl phenylalanine, retinyl propionate and mixtures thereof.
