  • Patent number: 11650186
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a thermoplastic film that includes a layer of thermoplastic material and a color indicator applied to the thermoplastic material. The color indicator can be configured to change color in response to a trigger. For example, the color indicator can change color (e.g., change from a first color to a second color) in response to a color change trigger, such as exposure to malodor particles, absorption of moisture, a length of time, or as a result of oxidation. In one or more embodiments, the thermoplastic film further includes an odor control component configured to mask, neutralize, or otherwise control malodors. The color indicator can change its color appearance as the odor control component performs to control any present malodors, thus signaling the performance of the odor control component.

The application of a hydrolysis process to materials, particularly materials with a high level of unsaponifiables (e.g., at least 6 weight percent of the material), produces a product with properties significantly different from those products resulting from the conventional saponification of materials with less than 6 weight percent of unsaponifiables. The hydrolysates of the present invention are substantive, resisting both physical and aqueous-based removal from skin and hair, exhibit a unique surfactant property, and are not foaming agents with water. Hydrolysates according to the present invention may be used to enhance the performance of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.

The agent comprises fillers from the group of surfactants and a bonding agent, wherein the bonding agent is selected from the group of polyalkylene derivatives, hydrogentated polystyrol derivatives, copolymers from the group of monoalkyl esters of poly(methyl vinyl ether/carbonic acid anhydrides, olefin homopolymers, and copolymers of two or more olefins, wherein the olefin homopolymers and copolymers can also be partially hydrogenated, partially oxidized, or further functionalized by graft molecules, and from the group of polyalkyleneimines, including in alkoxylized form, polyetheramines (alkoxylized amines) and polyglycerin polyether alkyl carbonic acids, polymers or derivatives comprising said polymer groups. The viscosity of the agent is at least 30 Pa s, measured using a Haake viscometer, plate/plate system, plate diameter 10 mm, at a shear rate of 2.

  • Publication number: 20140356312
    Abstract: Aqueous compositions, methods of manufacturing such aqueous compositions, and methods of removing reducing and/or suppressing malodours using such aqueous compositions are described. These compositions utilize a combination of hydrogen peroxide, a source of copper II, nonionic surfactant and alcohol to provide a highly effective and stable malodour removing, reducing and/or suppressing composition. The compositions are particularly useful as aerosol compositions for effective malodour removal, reduction and/or suppression in particular malodours from open sites such as landfill and in closed domestic environments such as the home. Also described is a stabilized hydrogen peroxide solution, which is stable on the addition of copper (II) salts.

  • Publication number: 20140322156
    Abstract: The use of 2-amino-1,3-propanediol and/or substituted 2-amino-1,3-propanediol for degradation of malodours caused by the presence of acids, thiols, sulphides, amines, aromatics, alcohols and/or heteroaromatics is described. By addition of 2-amino-1,3-propanediol and/or substituted 2-amino-1,3-propanediol to the ambient air or, for example, incorporated into washing compositions, it is possible to reduce corresponding malodours.

  • Publication number: 20140308231
    Abstract: Disclosed are a deodorizer using an autotrophic microbe, and a method for preparing the same. The deodorizer is prepared through a culturing step for amplifying an autotrophic microbe of interest, a sterilizing and purifying step for removing impurities and harmful microbes other than the autotrophic microbe, and a harvesting step for collecting the filtered autotrophic microbes. The microbial deodorizes is effective for removing odorous emissions attributed to ammonia, trimethylamine, formaldehyde, and hydrogen sulfide and is safe to the body and the environment including air and water.

  • Publication number: 20140271522
    Abstract: It is intended to provide a novel deodorant composition which is excellent in the deodorizing effect, is capable of affording a deodorant composition by a convenient method, and shows no decrease in the deodorizing performance even after a long period of time, once the deodorant being prepared. Specifically, there is provided a deodorant composition containing, as the active component, a colored compound obtainable by reacting a polyphenol in a solvent showing alkalinity in the coexistence of an oxygen molecule at a reaction pH value of 6.5 or more. As a substitute for a polyphenol, use can be made of a plant extract containing a polyphenol but containing substantially no amino acid. It is also possible to further employ an amino acid. Furthermore, use can be made of a plant extract and/or a plant body containing a polyphenol and an amino acid.

  • Publication number: 20140243768
    Abstract: An odor control layer for personal care products has a composition that has a PEG or PEG copolymer composition applied thereto. The layer can be placed in a personal care product, such as a diaper, training pant, absorbent under pant, adult incontinence product, or feminine hygiene product. Additional odor control layers may include silver nanoparticles and activated carbon compositions. In an alternative form, a single odor control layer includes the PEG composition and the activated carbon and/or silver nanoparticle compositions. A cleansing composition with PEG and possibly active carbon and silver nanoparticles may be combined with the personal care product to form a kit.
