  • Patent number: 11571493
    Abstract: Methods for preparing a PEG composition by co-precipitation of two or more components to produce a substantially homogenous powder. According to some embodiments, the two or more components are at least and partially soluble in a solvent, and at least one component is a functionalized PEG. Contacting the at least two component with the solvent at least partially dissolves the components which are then co-precipitated. The resulting product is substantially homogenous, unlike product made by other methods. The PEG composition may be co-precipitated with additional compounds, such as a colorant like indocyanine green.

  • Patent number: 9101134
    Abstract: This invention discloses a surgical prep solution formulation, either film forming or non-film forming, that changes color upon a change in pH to indicate that the solvent has sufficiently evaporated. The major components of this surgical prep solution include: antimicrobial agents, solvents, pH adjusters, color changing pH indicators, and optionally: film forming polymers, dyes and viscosity regulators. The pH of the solution may rise or fall depending on the pH of the original solution as compared with the normal pH range of the acid mantle of the human skin or the normal pH range of a sterilizing solution. As the pH changes, the pH indicator may cause the surgical prep solution to change color. Concurrently, as the fluids evaporate, the pH indicators interact with atmospheric CO2, causing the solution to change color based on the pH of the solution. The solution may also be used as coating for medical devices.

  • Publication number: 20150093350
    Abstract: The present application relates to organosilicones and compositions such as consumer products comprising such organosilicones, as well as processes for making and using such organosilicones and such compositions. Such compositions comprising such organosilicones are easier to formulate, and provide more economical and superior care benefits when compared to current silicone containing compositions.

  • Patent number: 8986667
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a mixture, having a skin-tightening effect, which is made up of: 10 to 80% by weight of a polysaccharide, preferably of an alginate, having a molecular weight of less than 600,000 Daltons, preferably less than 400,000 Daltons and more preferably less than 200,000 Daltons, 15 to 75% by weight of a polyhydroxylated agent selected from sugars and their derivatives, particularly sugar esters and sugar, ethers, preferably sorbitol, 3 to 15% by weight of poly(vinyl alcohol) or polyvinylpyrrolidone, and 0 to 25% by weight of cellulose or of a derivative of cellulose, such as carboxymethylcellulose or hydroxymethylcellulose. The present invention also relates to cosmetic compositions which contain this mixture. These cosmetic compositions enable a mechanical smoothing of the surface of the skin to be obtained progressively with great comfort of use and enables a good fixing of make-up products.

  • Patent number: 8968755
    Abstract: The invention provides skin-protecting and penetrating, easy-to-administer base and active agent-containing compositions, such as those including hydrocortisone, for treating the skin of mammals for different dermatologic disorders. This is effected by topically administering effective amounts of the compositions thereto in forms that address the skin and mucosa of the mouth and lips, and the rest of the body. Additionally, an optional flavoring addition to these products affords significantly better tasting, and less bitter, compositions, allowing a more pleasant experience and better compliance by patients. The compositions include a unique formulation of FANCOL VB, Natunola Castor 1023, Finsolv TN, bees wax and, optionally, one or a plurality of plant or plant seed oils, fatty alcohols, fats and flavorings, in desirable weight percents thereof, in various forms, and preferably in a form of a solid roll-on stick in a variety of sizes and of a jar or pot.

  • Publication number: 20150034117
    Abstract: Compositions, kits, and methods for repairing bonds, for example, disulfide bonds, in hair or on the skin are disclosed. The compositions provide improved conditioning benefit for dry hair or moisturize the skin. The compositions also provide a long lasting moisturized feel and smooth feel to the skin or hair, without feeling greasy. The compositions contain one or more compounds that covalently bind at least two thiol groups in the hair or on the skin. Use of the binding compositions prevents reversion of the repaired bonds to their free thiol state, for at least one week or one month, or more, after a single application of the composition. Improved methods of styling hair, for example permanent hair waving, hair curling, hair coloring or highlighting, and hair straightening, are also provided.
