  • Patent number: 5871756
    Abstract: Thermally-inhibited starches and flours are used in cosmetic compositions such as skin and hair care products as emulsifiers, thickeners, and aesthetic control agents. The starch or flour is inhibited by dehydrating the starch or flour to anhydrous or substantially anhydrous and then heat treating the dehydrated starch or flour for a time and at a temperature sufficient to inhibit the starch or flour and improve its viscosity stability when dispersed in water. The dehydration may be a thermal or a non-thermal dehydration (e.g., by alcohol extraction or freeze-drying). Preferably, the pH of the starch or flour is adjusted to a neutral or above (e.g., pH 8-9.5) prior to the dehydration and heat treatment.

  • Patent number: 5871765
    Abstract: Controlled release non-aqueous air care gels comprising from about 1 to about 50 percent on a weight basis of diblock, triblock, multiblock and/or radial block copolymers based on synthetic thermoplastic rubbers. The ratio of the diblock to triblock, multiblock and/or radial block copolymers can be varied from about 0 percent to about 100 percent in either direction. The material to be gelled is a hydrocarbon, one or more hydrocarbon-soluble substances, or mixtures thereof, which based on its physical properties plays an important role in setting the controlled release rate. The composition of the hydrocarbon can vary in carbon length from about C-5 to about C-30 and can vary in vapor pressure up to about 600 mm Hg at 20.degree. C. The hydrocarbon range on a weight basis is from about 20 to about 95 percent of the total weight of the gelled composition.

  • Patent number: 5833964
    Abstract: Disclosed are antiperspirant stick compositions that exhibit substantially no visible residue (whitening) upon application to the skin or after drying. The compositions include both emollients that are silicone materials and emollients that are not silicone materials, these materials having a refractive index of at least 1.4460, in addition to including a vehicle (for example, cyclomethicone), a gelling agent (for example, stearyl alcohol and hydrogenated castor oil) and the active antiperspirant material (for example, particulate antiperspirant metal salts). These compositions reduce the necessity of using expensive silicone materials, while still achieving antiperspirant compositions with substantially no visible residue.
