  • Patent number: 11058904
    Abstract: A composition in which the volatile silicone is partially or fully replaced by a plant oil. The plant oil containing composition is parity or better than the volatile silicone containing material but at lower cost. One example comprises a mixing product of at least one material chosen from antiperspirant actives and deodorant actives; greater than 10 weight % of a plant oil: and less than 40 weight % of a volatile silicone oil. Another examples comprises a mixing product of greater than 10 weight % of a plant oil; a gellant for the composition; and less than 40 weight % of a volatile silicone oil, wherein the composition does not contain an antiperspirant active or deodorant active.
