Description

[Technical Field]



[0001] The present invention relates to an oil-based hair cosmetic material which provides excellent care for damaged hair and imparts comfortable sensation upon use. More specifically, the invention relates to an oil-based hair cosmetic material comprising a specific dibasic acid ester compound and a specific oil agent, that can improve surface and internal conditions of damaged hair, and impart comfortable sensation upon use by strengthening hair and achieving a non-sticky light finish, and also to a method for preparing the same.

[Background Art]



[0002] In recent years, one of the major concerns in hair-care products is improvement in hair damages on surface of hair (cuticle),caused by outflow of internal lipids and the like due to chemical treatments including hair colors and permanent waves, and physical treatments including blowing; that is, for example, prevention of lifting up of cuticle, improvement in hair strength and smoothness, and prevention of hair dryness.

[0003] To improve conditions of damaged hair, there has been conventionally proposed a method to supplement an appropriate amount of oil to hair to provide the hair with smoothness and flexibility, by means of combining a plant oil such as camellia oil and olive oil to hair cosmetics.

[0004] Furthermore, to improve comfortable sensation upon use of hair cosmetics, concomitant use of silicone oils and their derivatives such as high-molecular-weight silicone oils and volatile silicone oils has also been proposed.

[0005] Moreover, to improve comfortable sensation upon use, concomitant use of ester oils such as diethoxy ethyl succinate has been proposed; also, aromatic alcohols such as benzyl alcohol have been used as a penetration-enhancing agent for oil agents.

[0006] However, when a plant oil alone is used as an ingredient of hair cosmetic materials for caring damaged hair, uncomfortable stickiness accompanies upon application to hair, and a heavy finish is also imparted; therefore, an entirely satisfactory hair cosmetic material could not be obtained.

[0007] Furthermore, even when a silicone oil is co-used, although a light refreshing finish is imparted, an improvement in hair strength is not sufficient, and unnatural shine deteriorates the hair appearance upon its application; thus, an entirely satisfactory hair cosmetic material could not be obtained in this case as well.

[0008] Moreover, concomitant use of conventional ester oils is not satisfactory from the viewpoint of improvement in sensation upon use, in addition to the problem of deteriorated storage stability. When aromatic alcohols are used as a penetration-enhancing agent, there is a problem of odor and safety, etc.; thus, an entirely satisfactory hair cosmetic material could not be obtained in this case as well.

[0009] For example, to improve sensation upon use, an oil-based hair cosmetic material formulated with a volatile hydrocarbon oil, a plant oil, and dimethiconol has been proposed (Patent Literature 1). To improve the effects of care for damaged hair and sensation upon use, a hair cosmetic material formulated with dimethyl polysiloxane and a hydrocarbon oil, etc. (Patent Literature 2), and an oil-based hair cosmetic material formulated with polyurethane polymer, a silicone oil and a nonionic surfactant, etc. (Patent Literature3) have been proposed.

[0010] Further, in order to improve sensation upon use, a cosmetic material formulated with a diester of cyclohexanedicarboxylic acid and polyoxyethylene monoalkyl ether (Patent Literature 4), and a cosmetic material including hair conditioners, etc. that is formulated with polyoxyethylene dicarboxylate ester (Patent Literature 5), and a hair cosmetic material formulated with dialkylene glycol monoalkyl ether (Patent Literature 6) have been proposed.

[0011] However, in any of the above Patent Literatures, the oil-based hair cosmetic material of the present invention comprising a specific dibasic acid ester compound and a specific oil agent has not been disclosed; in addition, any of the cosmetic materials disclosed in the above Patent Literatures have not been sufficiently investigated or confirmed in terms of their effects as a hair cosmetic material from the viewpoints of both the care for damaged hair and improvement in sensation upon use.

[0012] In Patent Literature 7, an invention of oil agents and others comprising a specific dibasic acid ester compound has been disclosed, and a composition comprising said oil agent has been described; however, the structure and application of this invention relate to an aqueous cosmetic, and the object of the invention is to improve the sensation of use upon application to skin. Thus, the structure, application, object and effects of the invention differ from those in the present invention. There is also no description or suggestion regarding the effects of the oil-based hair cosmetic material used in the present invention that comprises a specific dibasic acid ester compound and a specific oil agent.

[0013] Non-patent Literature 1 discloses bis-ethoxydiglycol succinate, named Haiaqueouster DCS, for use in skin and hair cosmetic compositions.

[0014] Patent Literature 8 discloses diethoxyethyl succinate for use in hair cosmetics.

[0015] As mentioned above, to date there is no oil-based hair cosmetic materials that can improve surface and internal conditions of damaged hair and add strength to the hair, with comfortable sensation upon use by achieving a non-sticky and light finish, and there is no oil-based hair cosmetic materials that enable the production of hair cosmetics having such effects. In other words, at present, hair cosmetic materials that provide excellent care for damaged hair tend to have inferior sensation upon use.

[0016] Accordingly, the development of technology and products to realize hair cosmetic materials having both superior improving effects on damaged hair and excellent sensation upon use has been strongly desired.

[Summary of Invention]


[Technical Problem]



[0019] The object of the present invention is to provide an oil-based hair cosmetic material that improves surface and internal conditions of damaged hair, adds strength and natural shine to the hair, provides a non-sticky light finish and prevents static electricity, thereby achieving comfortable sensation upon use, and to provide a method for preparing such oil-based hair cosmetic material.

[Solution to Problem]



[0020] As a result of intensive investigations taking into account the above-mentioned object, the present inventors have found that a specific dibasic acid ester compound has very superior characteristics as a penetration-enhancing agent for hair cosmetic materials, such as high permeability to hair, excellent safety, and almost no odor. In addition, by combining such a dibasic acid ester compound with a specific oil agent to formulate an oil-based hair cosmetic material, the inventors have found that the resulting hair cosmetic material has better effects in improving surface and internal conditions of damaged hair, adds strength and natural shine to the hair, provides a non-sticky light finish and prevents static electricity, thereby achieving comfortable sensation upon use; after further investigations, the inventors have accomplished the present invention.

[0021]  Namely, the present invention relates to an oil-based hair cosmetic material comprising (A) a dibasic acid ester compound of general formula (1):

[0022]  The invention also relates to said oil-based hair cosmetic material, wherein a poly- (or mono-)ethylene glycol monoether or a derivative thereof constituting the dibasic acid ester compound is one or more substances selected from the group consisting of diethylene glycol monoethyl ether, diethylene glycol monopropyl ether, diethylene glycol monoisopropyl ether, triethylene glycol monoethyl ether, triethylene glycol monopropyl ether, triethylene glycol monoisopropyl ether, dipropylene glycol monoethyl ether, dipropylene glycol monopropyl ether, dipropylene glycol monoisopropyl ether, tripropylene glycol monoethyl ether, tripropylene glycol monopropyl ether, tripropylene glycol monoisopropyl ether, dibutylene glycol monoethyl ether, dibutylene glycol monopropyl ether, dibutylene glycol monoisopropyl ether, dibutylene glycol monobuthyl ether, dibutylene glycol monoisobutyl ether, tributylene glycol monoethyl ether, tributylene glycol monopropyl ether, tributylene glycol monoisopropyl ether, tributylene glycol monobutyl ether, and tributylene glycol monoisobutyl ether.

[0023] Furthermore, the invention relates to said oil-based hair cosmetic material, wherein a dibasic acid constituting the dibasic acid ester compound is malic acid or succinic acid.

[0024] In addition, the invention relates to said oil-based hair cosmetic material, wherein the dibasic acid ester compound is bis-diethylene glycol ethyl ether succinate (bis-ethoxydiglycol succinate).

[0025] Furthermore, the invention relates to said oil-based hair cosmetic material, wherein the oil-based hair cosmetic material comprises 1.0-50% by mass of the dibasic acid ester compound based on the total mass of the oil-based hair cosmetic material.

[0030] With respect to the oil-based hair cosmetic material of the present invention, the mechanism with which effects of improving both damaged hair and sensation upon use are enhanced by means of concomitant use of a specific dibasic acid ester compound and a specific oil agent, compared to conventional hair cosmetic materials, has not yet been thoroughly clarified.

[0031] The specific dibasic acid ester compound used in the oil-based hair cosmetic material of the present invention is a penetration-enhancing agent that has particularly excellent characteristics of both water solubility and oil solubility compared to conventional penetration-enhancing agents; accordingly, said compound has high compatibility with both the hair which comprises proteins and water and has high polarity, and the oil agent formulated as an ingredient for caring damaged hair.

[0032] Due to such characteristics, it is considered that the dibasic acid ester compound of the invention suppresses lifting up of cuticle on the surface of damaged hair, and fills the voids from which internal lipid of the hair has flown out, thereby giving an appropriate amount of oil to the hair to increase its strength as well as to prevent evaporation of water content and generation of static electricity; in addition, it also prevents attachment of an excessive amount of an oil agent to the hair surface to achieve a non-sticky light finish and natural shine.

[Advantageous Effects of Invention]



[0033] The oil-based hair cosmetic material of the invention has the following effects: compared to conventional hair cosmetic materials, it improves conditions of damaged hair, and it imparts strength and natural shine to hair and achieves a non-sticky light finish and prevents generation of static electricity, thereby exhibiting superior sensation upon use. Of the oil-based hair cosmetic materials of the invention, those wherein the dibasic acid ester compound is bis-diethylene glycol succinate ethyl ether (bis-ethoxydiglycol succinate) are particularly superior in the effects of improving damaged hair and in their comfortable sensation upon use.

[0034] Thus, the oil-based hair cosmetic materials of the invention can be applied to wide range of hair cosmetics including hair oil, hair liquid, hair gel, hair spray, hair stick and hair mousse, and such hair cosmetics containing the oil-based hair cosmetic materials of the invention are expected to show various effects including excellent sensation upon use.

[0084] Hereinafter, the present invention is described further in detail using examples; however, the invention is not limited thereto. Unless otherwise specified, "%" described below means "mass%."

[Examples 1-8]


(Preparation and evaluation of hair oil)



[0085] Hair oils of Examples 1-8 and Comparative example 1 with the composition shown in Table 1 were prepared in accordance with the preparation method below. Properties of the hair oils of Examples 1-8 and Comparative example 1 were evaluated in accordance with the evaluation method below. Results are shown in Table 1.

(Preparation method)



[0086] Ingredients of each composition listed in Table 1 were mixed, and dissolved by stirring at room temperature to give a homogeneous mixture; as a result, hair oils of Examples 1-8 and Comparative example 1 were obtained.

(Evaluation method)


(1) Sensory evaluation


(a) Preparation of hair bundles for evaluation



[0087] Hair from Japanese adult women whose hair has not been chemically treated with perms and hair colors, etc. was subjected to damages by 3 times of bleaching treatments (brand name: Palty, from DARIYA), and 4 times of washing and drying by a dryer. Using this damaged hair, hair bundles for evaluation with a length of 10 cm, width of 3 cm, and weight of 6 g were prepared.

(b) Treatment of hair bundles for evaluation



[0088] Each sample from Examples and Comparative example was taken by a finger in an amount of 0.5 g, and was homogeneously applied to one of the above hair bundles by spreading the sample using fingers, then the hair bundle was naturally dried. Next, the hair bundle after sample application was shampooed (brand name: TSUBAKI, from Shiseido Co., Ltd.), and dried using a dryer. To the hair bundles after shampooing, each 0.5-g sample from Examples and Comparative example was homogeneously applied and naturally dried. This procedure was repeated 5 times.

(c) Sensory evaluation



[0089] With respect to each of the hair bundles for evaluation during and after the above treatment, 10 evaluation panelists performed 5-grade evaluation regarding the 6 items below, and average values of evaluation were obtained.

*Easy application (easiness of spreading)

*N on-stickiness

*Light finish/ smoothness

*Easiness in taking shape

*Hair strength

*Natural shine


(2) Storage stability



[0090] Each of the samples of Examples and Comparative example stored in a thermostatic chamber at 45°C for 3 months, and the samples of Examples and Comparative example stored in a thermostatic chamber with a temperature repeatedly changed between -5°C and 45°C for 5 times was visually observed in terms of external appearances such as separation, perspiration, and discoloration, and changes in the external appearances were evaluated with 5 grades.

(3) Improvement effect on cuticle



[0091] Regarding one each evaluation hair bundle treated with samples from the above Examples and Comparative example, condition of detachment of cuticles on hair surface as well as condition of lift up of cuticles were observed and photographed using a field-emission-type scanning electron microscope (JSM-7000F, from JEOL Ltd.) to evaluate improvement effects on cuticle (improvement effects on damaged hair).

[0092] Condition of detachment of cuticles was evaluated as follows: the number of cuticle-detachment points at 5 representative locations on an arbitrary hair in each hair bundle was counted, and its average value was calculated and converted to 5-grade evaluation.

[0093] Condition of lift-up of cuticles was evaluated as follows: a lift-up angle of cuticle (an angle formed between the cuticle lifted up and the hair surface) at 5 representative locations on an arbitrary hair in each hair bundle was measured, and its average value was calculated and converted to 5-grade evaluation.

(4) Antistatic effect



[0094] For one each hair bundle treated using samples from the above Examples and Comparative example, static electricity was intentionally generated by rubbing the hair bundle with a plastic brush for 7 times from the root of the hair bundle to its tip. Then, static voltage of the surface of the hair bundle was measured using a static electrometer (SV-10, from Kasuga Electric Works Ltd.), its average value was calculated and converted to 5-grade evaluation.

[0095] The 5-grade evaluation of each of the above properties is performed based on the criteria below to give relative rank order, using results of evaluation/ measurement of all samples from Examples and Comparative example.

5: Good (O)

4: Fairly good (□-O)

3: Neutral (□)

2: Fairly poor (X-□)

1: Poor (X)
