Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0001321A1] A technique for the production of soothing and cooling sensations in tissues such as sensitive skin areas and mucous membranes is provided. To produce a sensation of esthetic cooling, dimethyl ether may be applied to the target tissues in the form of a liquid or a gas arising from a liquid that is sprayed, swallowed, or applied with a bandage or other dressing. Alternatively, it may be applied as a lozenge, suppository, or other solid dosage form that releases the dimethyl ether to the target tissue. The intensity and duration of the esthetic cooling effect is obtained when the dimethyl ether is applied at minute concentrations. It has also been discovered that this technique can enhance the perception of flavor of foods, beverages, and candies.
