  • Patent number: 9428712
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the field of perfumery. More particularly, it provides a perfuming composition capable of prolonging the release of a perfuming component into the surrounding environment when applied on a body surface. The composition comprises PPG-3 myristyl ether as a fragrance evaporation modulator in the presence of high amounts of ethanol. The invention also relates to consumer articles containing such compositions. It finally provides methods for the perfuming of a body surface and a method for increasing the long-lastingness of a perfuming component using these compositions.

  • Publication number: 20140356304
    Abstract: Antiperspirant and/or deodorant compositions commonly contain montan wax derivatives that may function as structurants preventing syneresis in cream antiperspirant and deodorant compositions, especially anhydrous cream formulations. Because montan wax derivatives are obtained via natural resources (lignite wax), the quality of the derivatives is often inconsistent and unreliable. There is therefore a need for a more reliable alternative. The present inventors have discovered that certain esterified oligomeric polyhydric alcohols, offer an effective, efficient and reliable alternative to montan wax derivatives as structuring agents.
