  • Patent number: 10532024
    Abstract: Compositions for suppressing sebum production in skin (e.g., seborrheic skin), and minimizing glycation in skin (e.g., mature skin) with enhanced UV absorptive properties are described. In particular, the present invention relates to a composition containing a skin benefit agent that includes Lithospermum erythrorhizon. Also, methods of suppressing sebum production in skin (e.g., seborrheic skin) and minimizing glycation in skin (e.g., mature skin) by applying a composition to the skin, wherein the composition comprises an effective amount of a derivative of Lithospermum erythrorhizon are also described.

  • Publication number: 20150258158
    Abstract: Compositions and methods for inhibition of triglyceride synthesis via synergistic combination of botanical extracts are described. Specifically, the present invention relates to treating or preventing weight gain or obesity, promoting weight loss, appetite suppression, or the like, as well as managing skin oil production through a synergistic inhibition of diacylglycerol acyltransferase-I (DGAT-I) enzyme involved in the triglyceride synthesis and modulation of sterol regulatory element binding protein Ic (SREBP-Ic) and/or peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma coactivator I-alpha (PGCI?).

  • Publication number: 20150051296
    Abstract: A composition and a method that is effective to reduce, limit, or diminish one or more side effects of a retinoid are described. The composition includes a retinoid and a free fatty acid. The composition may further include one or more cosmetically suitable ingredients so long as they do not interfere with the efficaciousness of the free fatty acid. The method for reducing, limiting, or diminishing a side effect associated with the topical administration of a retinoid to a skin area of a subject includes topically administering a free fatty acid to the skin area prior to, during, and/or after topical administration of the retinoid.

  • Publication number: 20140172314
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for determining an individual's personal correlation factor and, using the personal correlation factor, determining the individual's caloric intake. A method for determining a personal correlation factor includes determining a body composition change over a calibration period, converting the body composition change to an equivalent energy value, and dividing the equivalent energy value by a net caloric value for the same calibration period, wherein the net caloric value includes a caloric expenditure less a caloric intake. A method for determining a subsequent caloric intake includes converting a body composition change to an equivalent energy value, dividing the equivalent energy value by the personal correlation value, and adding to this quotient the individual's caloric expenditure, wherein each step is performed using a processor.
