  • Patent number: 8124061
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to personal care cleansing compositions and wipes. More particularly, the disclosure relates to single phase compositions and wipes for cleansing the skin and/or hair of a user, while additionally, imparting a perceivable aesthetic feel to the skin of a user. To achieve both cleansing and the perceivable aesthetic feel, a modified sorbitan siloxane is incorporated into the compositions and wipes.

  • Publication number: 20080145443
    Abstract: A diaper rash composition and a method for treating diaper rash are disclosed. In one embodiment, the diaper rash composition contains a volatile silicone, a silicone elastomer, and a diaper rash agent. Of particular advantage, the diaper rash composition can be formulated so as to only contain the above three ingredients. Thus, the composition can be formulated as a semi-solid that contains no emulsifers and is substantially non-aqueous. In alternative embodiments, the composition can also contain a carrier, a non-silicone elastomer, and various other miscellaneous ingredients.

  • Publication number: 20070137812
    Abstract: A tissue product is disclosed containing an additive composition. The additive composition may be, for instance, a composition designed to provide benefits to a user's skin. In accordance with the present disclosure, the additive composition is located in a target delivery zone on a base web. The base web is modified in the target delivery zone so that the additive composition more efficiently transfers to an opposing surface during use.

  • Patent number: 6896766
    Abstract: Paper products treated on two surfaces with a liquid resistant composition are disclosed. The paper products can be, for instance, bath tissues, facial tissues, paper towels, and industrial wipers. The liquid resistant compositions can include any additive that provides benefits to the product. For instance, the liquid resistant composition can be a softener containing a hydrophobic additive. In one embodiment, the hydrophobic additive is a polysiloxane. In accordance with the present invention, the water resistant composition is applied to each surface according to a pattern. Each of the patterns includes treated and untreated areas. The patterns are positioned on the paper product such that untreated areas on one surface are in correspondence with the treated areas on the other surface of the sheet.

  • Patent number: 6893537
    Abstract: A tissue product that has a relatively low level of lint and slough is provided. For example, the tissue product contains a flexible binder copolymer that is at least formed from an ethylenically unsaturated monomeric constituent and an unsaturated polysiloxane monomeric constituent. In one particular embodiment, the unsaturated polysiloxane monomeric constituent includes at least one unsaturated polysiloxane monomer having the following formula: wherein, R1 is an ethylenically unsaturated group that has free radical polymerizability; R2, R3, R4, R5, R6, R7, and R8 are the same or different and can be selected from the group consisting of hydrogen, an aryl group, an alkyl group, a substituted alkyl or aryl group, an ethoxy group, and a propoxy group; m is an integer from 4 to 15,000; and n is an integer from 0 to 15,000.

  • Publication number: 20040256066
    Abstract: Textile materials, including paper webs, treated with a polyvinylamine polymer and a second agent that interacts with the polyvinylamine polymer is disclosed. The second agent added with the polyvinylamine polymer can be, for instance, a polymeric anionic reactive compound or a polymeric aldehyde-functional compound. When incorporated into a paper web, the combination of the polyvinylamine polymer and the second agent provide improved strength properties, such as wet strength properties. In an alternative embodiment, the polyvinylamine polymer and the second polymer can be applied to a textile material for increasing the affinity of the textile material for acid dyes.
