Patents by Inventor Michael Keith Robinson

Michael Keith Robinson has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 11035851
    Abstract: Methods of identifying potential skin moisturizing actives for the treatment of dry skin and method of formulating a moisturizing skin care composition using actives identified by the method. Moisturizing agents can be identified by comparing the transcriptional profile of a skin tissue sample contacted by a test agent to a negative or positive control to determine if the regulation of certain genes corresponds to the appropriate direction of regulation indicated by the control. Agents identified as skin moisturizing agents can then be incorporated into a skin moisturizing composition.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: May 9, 2017
    Date of Patent: June 15, 2021
    Assignee: The Procter & Gamble Company

  • Publication number: 20150322527
    Abstract: Gene panels, microarrays and biomarker panels relating to genes and gene products associated with age-related oxidative damage to skin, and transcriptional profiling-based methods for identification and evaluation of cosmetic agents for prevention, reversal, or reduction of oxidative damage to skin. Cosmetic agents and compositions comprising the cosmetic agents, capable of inducing nrf2-mediated activation of the antioxidant response element to increase expression of Phase 2 enzymes, methods for restoring optimal redox status to skin employing the agents, and methods for identifying and evaluating cosmetic agents acting via the nrf2-mediated mechanism.

  • Publication number: 20110262025
    Abstract: Gene panels, biomarker panels and microarrays relating to lipid formation in stratum corneum of human skin as a function of extrinsic and/or intrinsic aging conditions, and methods for assessing the age status of human skin, methods for identifying or evaluating an agent as effective for improving stratum corneum barrier maintenance and/or repair properties in aged skin, and cosmetic composition comprising the identified agents are all provided.
