  • Patent number: 9439846
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an oral care composition comprising catechins. We have found that the catechins tend to darken the color of the chalk based toothpaste due to its oxidation which happens at the high pH of the toothpaste. Once the catechins are oxidized and darken the color of the toothpaste it is no longer available as such for providing anti-inflammatory benefits. It is an object of the invention to provide a chalk based toothpaste formulation which does not turn substantially dark due to oxidation of catechins. The present inventors while working with oral care compositions comprising catechins preferably green tea catechins for providing anti-inflammatory benefits, surprisingly found that some selected zinc salts when added in particular quantities do not result in darkening the color of the toothpaste, and also, when stored, are able to deliver green tea catechins.

The anti-bacterial herbs appear to fight the root cause of the many ailments listed, instead of just masking them. It cleansed my pores for acne. I sprayed it in and on my eyes. It gently allowed sebaceous debris, often called eye mucous, to painlessly ooze away from eyelash pores and other eye glands like NO other product I have heard of. It unclogged the micro eyelid circulation, greatly reducing the puffiness we all get with age. Cleaning pores allowed skin to heal itself better, reducing wrinkles and acne scars. It naturally kills bacteria that cause odors under your arms and orally. It is consumable, so it works safely all the way down the back of the tongue where scrappers and chemical washes can't reach.

  • Patent number: 8865192
    Abstract: The present invention relates to flavor oils including mint-, fruit- and spice-type flavors that are specially processed to substantially eliminate low-molecular weight sulfur compounds, in particular dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), which has been found to be the main precursor of malodorous species such as dimethyl sulfide and methyl mercaptan. These malodorous species are produced via oxidation-reduction reactions involving such sulfur-containing compounds present in flavor oils. A preferred processing method is an aqueous-washing process, which has advantages of being simple, inexpensive and easy to implement while importantly avoiding the problems of typical processes including non-selective removal of desirable components and subjecting the flavor oils to extreme conditions that may destroy other components and result in undesirable changes in flavor or odor character.
