Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0222103A1] The present invention relates to an oil in water emulsion comprising: (a) from about 0.0001 % to about 1 % protease enzyme; (b) less than 20 % polyhydric alcohol in the continuous phase; (c) less than 50 % oil phase; and wherein the protease enzyme exhibits its activity at pH greater than 5.5 and wherein the water activity of the external phase is greater than 0.85. In a preferred embodiment the composition is packaged in a pack comprising two or more chambers wherein the first chamber comprises an aqueous composition comprising: (a) from about 0.0001 % to about 10 %, preferably from about 0.1 % to about 5 %, more preferably from about 0.05 % to about 2 %, by weight, protease enzyme; (b) from about 20% to about 99 %, more preferably from about 60 to about 98 %, by weight, of a polyhydric alcohol; and (c) less than about 20 % and preferably less than about 10 %, by weight, of water; wherein the second chamber comprises a placebo composition as an oil in water emulsion and wherein the compositions from the two chambers are dispensed from the dispensing system simultaneously, preferably through a single nozzle. Compositions of the present invention are useful for treating skin or hair and providing superior dequamation/exfoliation and skin feel benefits.
