  • Publication number: 20120317733
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are compositions and methods to treat hair with a peracid-based benefit agent. The peracid benefit agent can be used for hair bleaching, hair weakening, hair removal, hair waiving, hair straightening or any combination thereof. The peracid may be enzymatically generated from a carboxylic acid ester substrate using an enzyme having perhydrolytic activity (perhydrolase) in the presence of a source of peroxygen. A fusion protein comprising the perhydrolase coupled to a hair-binding domain, either directly or through an optional linker, may be used to target the perhydrolytic activity to the hair surface.

  • Publication number: 20120317731
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are compositions and methods for delivering substrates for a depilatory product using an enzymatically-generated peracid. More specifically, a pH stabilized two component system is provided comprising (a) a first aqueous composition comprising hydrogen peroxide and at least one carboxylic acid ester substrate; wherein the pH of the first aqueous composition is 4.0 or less and (b) a second aqueous component comprising an enzyme catalyst having perhydrolytic activity and a buffer, wherein the pH of the second aqueous composition is at least 5.0; wherein the first and second aqueous compositions remain separated until use. The perhydrolytic enzyme catalyst may be in the form of a fusion protein comprising a perhydrolytic enzyme coupled through an optional peptide linker to a peptidic component having affinity for hair.
