  • Publication number: 20080038206
    Abstract: A product release system for atomizing compositions is described, which has (a) a pressure-resistant packaging, (b) a capillary-containing spray head, and (c) a propellant-containing composition. The atomization occurs using the capillary and the composition contains at least one reactive agent, which is selected from hair-keratin-reducing compounds or is selected from oxidizing agents. The capillary preferably has a diameter of 0.1 to 1 mm and a length of 5 to 100 mm. The spray rate is preferably 0.01 to 5 g/s. The propellant-free composition can, in particular, be gel-like, waxy, non-fluid, or solid and can be used in a method for permanent hair shaping.

  • Publication number: 20080011315
    Abstract: A method for shaping hair comprising the steps of: (i) folding a curling sheet consisting of or comprising a super-absorbent material around the tips of the hair strand like an end-wrap; (ii) winding the hair around the folded sheet, thereby using said sheet as a curler; (iii) fixing the curlers with a clip, a pin, or another tool appropriate for fixing the hair on a curler; (iv) applying a aqueous hair shaping composition onto the hair on the curler; (v) leaving the shaping composition to act on the hair for about 1 to about 30 minutes, whereby said sheet is swelling and produces tension on the hair wound on it; and (vi) removing the said sheet.

  • Publication number: 20070092471
    Abstract: Cosmetic composition for the oxidative treatment of hair or skin, prepared by mixing of at least two components, in which dehydroascorbic acid or a dehydroascorbic acid salt or a dehydroascorbic acid derivative is generated from ascorbic acid, ascorbic acid derivative and ascorbic acid salt prior to application by an enzyme that catalyzes the enzymatical oxidation of said of ascorbic acid as well as a process for carrying out the oxidative treatment of keratin, particularly for the oxidative post-treatment of reduced hair in the process of permanent deformation of hair using said composition.

  • Publication number: 20050025735
    Abstract: A method for providing a time-dependent decrease of pH in a cosmetic composition is described. A method of permanently shaping hair is also described, in which, immediately prior to use, an enzyme that catalyzes an acid-generating reaction with a non-ester substrate is added to an alkaline composition, which contains the non-ester substrate, to form a ready-to-apply cosmetic composition. Then the hair, before and/or after it is put in a desired shape, is treated with the ready-to-apply cosmetic composition and, after a period of action, is rinsed from the hair with water. Thereafter the hair is oxidatively treated, rinsed again with water, optionally put in a water wave and dried. Preferably the enzyme and the non-ester substrate are selected so that the initial pH decreases by at least 0.5 pH units within a time interval of from 5 to 40 minutes.

  • Patent number: 5964794
    Abstract: An implantable stimulation electrode for use with an implantable tissue stimulator, in particular a pacemaker, defibrillator, bone or neurostimulator, having a metal substrate body and a coating, applied to the substrate body, for reducing the electrode impedance and/or increasing the tissue compatability, in which a ultrathin, specifically functionalized organic coating forming the entire outer surface of the stimulation electrode is provided, which adheres to the underlying surface as a consequence of irreversible physisorption or covalent chemical bonding.
