  • 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.

  • Patent number: 7662761
    Abstract: The invention relates to novel bar compositions comprising complexes formed from interaction of multivalent ions and soap. The insoluble complexes permit greater solid contents which counterintuitively, enhance lather (i.e., even if soluble soap is complexed, it is believed more can be used). Further, the complexes enhance rate of wear, hardness, mildness and deposition. The invention further comprises process for enhancing benefits by adding multivalent ions to soap stock during processing.

  • Patent number: 7659236
    Abstract: The invention relates to bar compositions comprising thermochromatic pigment or dye signaling temperature and/or benefit agent release. In a preferred embodiment, the pigment is introduced in the form of a separate domain (e.g., separate chips) which separate chip or chips is combined with a surfactant-containing chips to form the final bar.

  • Patent number: 7582592
    Abstract: A skin cleansing composition contains, in addition to water, the following ingredients (A) to (D): (A) a polyoxyethylene alkylether sulfate, (B) an ether carboxylic acid-type surfactant, (C) an alkyl polyglycoside, and (D) one or more of a higher fatty acid and a higher alcohol. A total amount of the ingredients (A), (B) and (C) ranges from 5 to 30 wt % based on the whole composition, with the ingredient (A) amounting to from 20 to 80 wt %, the ingredient (B) amounting to from 7 to 70 wt %, and the ingredient (C) amounting to from 7 to 70 wt %, the amount of the ingredient (D) ranges from 0.3 to 3 wt % based on the whole composition. A pH of the composition ranges from 4.5 to 7 when diluted to 5 wt % by weight with deionized water. The skin cleansing composition can produce abundant foam of fine and smooth quality without an increase in foam viscosity, and therefore, allows the body to be washed with comfort.

  • Publication number: 20090156450
    Abstract: The invention provides personal care or hair liquid cleansing compositions comprising fatty acyl isethionate products having more than 5% by wt. free fatty acid/fatty soaps which are stabilized using specific mixture of long chain and short chain fatty acids/fatty soaps; as well as by using proper ratio of total linear fatty acid/fatty soap to total synthetic surfactants (the total synthetic is the sum of (1) fatty acyl surfactant component of (a)—that is, the “pure” fatty acyl isethionate which does not include free fatty acids and/or fatty acid soaps in the fatty acyl surfactant “product”—and (2) the synthetic co-surfactant of (b)).

  • Patent number: 7531196
    Abstract: A cosmeceutical formulation is provided that includes a mixture of a refined, bleached, deodorized (RBD) palm oils and red palm olein. The resulting formulation is a homogeneous blend with a considerable shelf life. The formulation may be a cream, lotion, sunscreen, or a soap and may be formulated to include additional beneficial oils and EFAs. If a cream formulation is desired, RBD palm stearin is the preferred palm oil for producing a creamy texture. If a lotion is desired, RBD palm oil may be used and chemically modified to produce a tailored oil with a desired melting point and consistency. The formulation may be used to treat a variety of skin conditions including adverse and age-related skin conditions or as an effective moisturizer for the prolonged maintenance of ordinary skin.
