  • Patent number: 8063005
    Abstract: A non-aqueous cleansing formulation having cleansing, moisturizing and/or exfoliating properties includes an oil phase and a natural surfactant derived from legumes and/or grains. The oil phase can include an oil component and a thickening agent. The natural surfactant can be in the form of a particulate flour product derived from Vigna radiata, Vigna mungo, Glycine max, Cicer aerientinum, Vigna unguicalata, Pisum sativum, Phaseolus vulgaris, or combinations thereof, which is dispersed in the oil phase. The flour product suitably includes a high protein flour to emulsify the oil phase and provide improved cleansing action. Such non-aqueous cleansing formulation can be used as skin care products, hand cleansers, hair cleaners or general use cleansers. Advantageously, the cleansing formulations are free of synthetic soaps and/or synthetic surfactants.

  • Patent number: 8039654
    Abstract: Disclosed is an esterification reaction product which is capable of gelling both an oil agent and a cyclic silicone or a volatile dimethylpolysiloxane, or both an oil agent and a nonvolatile dimethylpolysiloxane. Also disclosed are a gelling agent contacting the esterification reaction product, and a cosmetic preparation containing the esterification reaction product or the gelling product and having an excellent feeling of use. Specifically, the cosmetic preparation contains, as a gelling agent, an esterification reaction product which is obtained by esterifying a component A that is a polyhydric alcohol or a condensate thereof, a component B that is a saturated dibasic acid having 10-28 carbon atoms, a component C that is a linear saturated fatty acid having 16-28 carbon atoms, and a component D that is a branched saturated fatty acid having 8-28 carbon atoms at a blending ratio (component A:component B) of 1.0 mole:0.10-0.20 mole.
