  • Patent number: 11111462
    Abstract: The present invention relates to bars comprising soap bar matrix comprising predominantly long chain length soap and regions or domains interspersed within the matrix comprising predominantly shorter chain soaps. The novel bars of the invention are sufficiently hard to survive large scale manufacturing while simultaneously delivering benefits of significant foam value enhancement, for example, due to delivery of short-chain soaps from concentrated regions. Surprisingly, even when soaps in concentrated regions comprise small percentage of overall soap oils or fats used, they form observable kappa phase pattern.

  • Patent number: 8957004
    Abstract: The invention relates to aerated soap bars. Generally, it is difficult to get aerated soap bars with the right level of aeration, because high viscosity of the molten soap mass sometimes makes it difficult to aerate it to the desired extent. The size and movement of air bubbles also play important roles. Bars with larger air bubbles have lower mechanical strength. We have determined that use of acrylates or cellulose ethers in aerated soap bars lead to bars with acceptable rate of wear, mush and lower density. The soaps also have a higher and more uniform air incorporation and better air retention. Disclosed are aerated soap bars having density from 0.2 to 0.99 g/cm3, comprising: (i) 20 to 80 wt % soap; (ii) 2 to 40 wt % polyol; (iii) 5 to 50% water; and, (iv) 0.5 to 5 wt % electrolyte; wherein the bars comprise 0.1 to 5 wt % polymer selected from acrylates or cellulose ethers.

  • Patent number: 8877696
    Abstract: A cleaning composition may comprise a pH-switchable sudsing system and a cleansing system. The pH-switchable sudsing system may comprise a primary sudsing agent in combination with a pH-switchable co-surfactant. The pH-switchable co-surfactant is selected from diamine molecules having a general formula R1R2—N—R3—N+(CH3)3X?, where R1 is a linear or branched C8 to C16 hydrocarbyl, R2 is a linear or branched C1 to C3 hydrocarbyl, R3 is a linear or branched C3 to C6 hydrocarbylene, and X is a counteranion. The tertiary amine nitrogen of the pH-switchable co-surfactant has a pKa value. When the tertiary amine nitrogen is unprotonated, the pH-switchable co-surfactant may provide a suds-boosting effect in washing solutions at a washing pH above the pKa. When the tertiary amine nitrogen is protonated, the pH-switchable co-surfactant may provide a suds-reducing benefit in rinse waters at a rinse pH below the pKa.
