  • Patent number: 9045593
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a series of silicone containing polymers that contain photostabilizers that act as photo stabilizers for Ultra Violet radiation. The polymers of the present invention are multi functional sun screening additives that allow in addition to photostabilizing the active sunscreen agent found in sunscreens, additionally provide high levels of UV protection in a cosmetically elegant base. The photostabilizing compositions are derived from a tricarboxylic triazine compound.

  • Patent number: 9040026
    Abstract: A body wash composition includes sunscreen or UV screen materials. The body wash composition is formulated so that it may be applied during normal hygiene activities, such as washing. However, the composition applies an effective level of sunscreen or UV screen material to the body such that the sunscreen or UV screen continues to provide effective solar protection even after rinsing or washing of the human body. Further, the material is a non-greasy, easy to apply material that may be used during showering activities in a manner similar to using a bar soap or cleanser. The composition includes a variety of materials that assist in the processing and storage of the body wash. Effective amounts of solar protective material include octyl methoxycinnamate, octyl salicylate, and titanium dioxide. Testing shows that the product provides a solar protective level of at least approximately 14 even after multiple rinsings. Further embodiments have achieved a solar protective level of at least approximately 17.

  • Patent number: 9034304
    Abstract: The invention relates to a high SPF sunscreen composition. There is a problem of achieving high SPF while keeping the total amount of sunscreens in the compositions relatively low. It is desirable, that the enhanced SPF benefit could be achieved through synergistic interaction of commonly used ingredients, thereby the present applicants have been working on solving this problem and have surprisingly found that cosmetic compositions comprising dibenzoylmethane or its derivative in combination with an oil soluble UV-B sunscreen when incorporated in a sunscreen composition along with a non-ionic surfactant of a select class meeting certain HLB requirements, provide the enhanced SPF benefits when applied on the substrate of interest.
