No. 10/915,143, filed Aug. 9, 2004, which is a continuation application of PCT/EP2003/001204, filed Feb. 7, 2003; all of these applications are incorporated by reference herein in their entireties.

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to cosmetic or dermatological formulations comprising one or more polyols in a concentration of 0.1 to 20% by weight, one or more diols from the group consisting of 2-methyl-1,3-propanediol, pentanediol, hexanediol in a concentration of 0.1 to 25% by weight, in each case based on the total weight of the formulation, and the use thereof.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The skin is the largest organ of humans. Its many functions (for example for regulation of heat and as a sense organ) include the barrier function, which prevents the skin (and therefore in the end the entire organism) from drying out, certainly the most important. At the same time, the skin acts as a protective device against penetration and uptake of substances from the outside. This barrier function is effected through the epidermis, which as the outermost layer forms the actual protective covering against the environment. With about one tenth of the total thickness, at the same time it is the thinnest layer of the skin.

The task of cosmetic skin care is to strengthen or re-establish the natural function of the skin as a barrier against environmental influences (for example dirt, chemicals, microorganisms) and against the loss of endogenous substances (for example water, natural fats, electrolytes).

The aim of skin care is furthermore to compensate for the loss of fats by the skin caused by daily washing. This is important precisely if the natural capacity for regeneration is not sufficient.

A central task of skin care is moisturizing of the skin. The moisture content of the skin has an important influence on its appearance and its state of health: the higher the water loss, the rougher and more friable the skin becomes. Its elasticity and plasticity decrease, and its intactness is no longer guaranteed. To moisturize the skin, moisturizing substances (moisturizers) which assist the water-binding capacity of the horny layer are added to cosmetic and dermatological formulations. Conventional skin moisturizers, which are employed in almost all cosmetic and dermatological formulations, include the polyols, such as glycerol and sorbitol. In addition, other compounds are also employed, such as ethoxylated polyols and hydrolyzed proteins. Components of the natural moisturizing factor of the skin (NMF), for example urea and certain amino acids, are moreover used.

A great disadvantage of the prior art is the adverse sensory properties of cosmetic or dermatological formulations which comprise polyol-containing moisturizing agents. As a rule, these feel tacky and greasy on the skin and make the corresponding products unattractive to the consumer. To suppress these negative properties, expensive silicone oils and lipids, which increase the preparation costs of the cosmetic/dermatological compositions, must be added the formulations.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

It was therefore the object of the present invention to eliminate this disadvantage of the prior art and to develop inexpensive cosmetic or dermatological formulations with significantly improved sensory properties. In particular, the formulations should not feel tacky. The content of silicone oils and other lipids which reduce the tackiness should be reduced.

Cosmetic and dermatological formulations are employed and consumed by consumers worldwide in the most diverse climate zones. Since the development of cosmetics or dermatological agents is quite involved and expensive, attempts are increasingly being made to develop recipes which can be employed globally under the most diverse climate conditions. However, the heat stability of these highly complex metastable mixtures is relatively limited. At low temperatures of below 5° C. their viscosity increases so severely that the formulations can scarcely still be used or processed. The products also tend towards separating out of water and phase separation at low temperatures and with relatively wide variations in temperature, such as may occur, for example, during transportation.

It was therefore a further object of the present invention to develop heat-stable cosmetic and dermatological formulations which, because of their low viscosity, can also still be used and processed at low temperatures. Surprisingly, these objects are achieved by cosmetic or dermatological formulations comprising

a) one or more polyols in a concentration of 0.1 to 20% by weight,

b) one or more diols from the group consisting of 2-methyl-1,3-propanediol,

pentanediol, hexanediol in a concentration of 0.1 to 25% by weight, in each case based on the total weight of the formulation.

The formulations according to the invention are distinguished by a high heat stability and low viscosity at low temperatures. Furthermore, they have excellent sensory properties, such as a low feeling of tackiness on the skin.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

It is advantageous according to the invention to employ the polyols in a concentration of 0.1 to 20% by weight, and in particular 1 to 15% by weight, based on the total weight of the formulation.
