Abstract: An indicator is useful for detecting pressure points on a denture. The indicator is made of a composition that easily adheres to oral mucosa, has a proper viscosity in an oral cavity environment, can be properly spread between an oral mucosa surface and a denture base, and easily specifies an affected part. The composition includes a fatty acid ester having a melting point of 30 to 50° C., a water-soluble high polymer, and a metal oxide. Preferably, the fatty acid is 40 to 95% by weight of the composition, the water-soluble high polymer is 1 to 59% by weight of the composition, and the metal oxide is 0.1 to 50% by weight of the composition.
Abstract: The invention relates to coating and encapsulation composition useful for protecting core material from oxidative and/or hydrolytic damage. The coating composition comprises a lipid polymer and a lipid-based anti-oxidant, wherein the anti-oxidant is soluble in the lipid polymer.

Abstract: The invention concerns aqueous viscous compositions, whether clear or not, for making soft or hard capsules, and method for making films for such capsules (gelled capsules). Said compositions are in particular characterised in that they contain a single gelling agent consisting of a carrageenan, preferably an Iota carrageenan, whereof the concentration in the medium is higher than 5% of the medium which can be aqueous and oily. The invention also concerns a method for making films for such capsules which consists in dehydrating said films by oven drying or lyophilisation. The invention is applicable in pharmaceutics, cosmetics and dietetics.
