Description

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0001] The present invention relates to a vaseline-like composition having moisture occlusion comparable to that of vaseline, superior spreadability on skin, little stickiness and favorable skin blendability, and to a cosmetic incorporating this composition.

[0002] The present application claims priority on the basis of Japanese Patent Application No. 2010-070136, filed in Japan on March 25, 2010, the contents of which are incorporated herein by reference.

BACKGROUND ART



[0003] Vaseline is obtained by purifying an ointment-like substance obtained by solvent dewaxing of a vacuum-distilled residual oil of crude oil, and is mainly composed of amorphous hydrocarbons having 24 to 34 carbon atoms. Highly purified white vaseline capable of being used in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals is available commercially.

[0004] Vaseline is frequently used in skin care cosmetics, makeup cosmetics and pharmaceuticals externally applied to the skin. Its most important functions consist of a moisture retention function and moisture transpiration inhibitory function (to be referred to as "moisture occlusion") for imparting moisture and softness to skin.

[0005] Skin problems such as rough skin are frequently caused by drying of the skin, and as a remedy for this, the application of vaseline and the like to effectively inhibit moisture transpiration from the skin is known to improve these skin problems. Consequently, products incorporating vaseline are available commercially in the form of cosmetics or external preparations demonstrating high levels of moisture occlusion.

[0006] Moisture occlusion produced by oily agents is known to be dependent on the polarity of the oily agent, and vaseline having low polarity demonstrates a high level of moisture occlusion, while ester oils having high polarity demonstrate a low level of moisture occlusion.

[0007] However, although vaseline is soft and has favorable spreadability, since it typically has difficulty in blending with the skin, after having applied a cream and the like, which contains non-polar oils including vaseline as the main components thereof, over vaseline after having applied vaseline to the skin, there are a significant number of times in which this creates problems during the course of daily life, such as the hand used to apply the cream remaining sticky for a long period of time, soiling of clothing and the like.

[0008] On the other hand, diisostearyl malate and diglyceryl triisostearate are frequently used in makeup cosmetics as oily agents having suitable viscosity and superior pigment dispersibility. However, since these substances have superior air permeability, they are far inferior to vaseline in terms of moisture occlusion, and have little ameliorative effect on rough skin.

[0009] In addition, since hydrocarbon-based waxes such as polyethylene wax, paraffin wax, ceresin wax or ozocerite form a solid that entraps liquid oils in wax when cooled after having been heated and mixed with a liquid oil, these substances are frequently used in oily solid cosmetics such as lipstick. However, since these waxes have a high degree of crystallinity, they inevitably produce a hard sensation when applied to skin, thereby making it difficult to realize smooth spreadability in the manner of vaseline. In the case of reducing the incorporated amount of wax in order to prevent this, the liquid oil ends up seeping out over time, thereby resulting in the problem of a decrease in product value.

[0010] Patent Document 1 discloses a water-in-oil type emulsified external skin preparation having favorable moisture occlusion that incorporates ester oil, a specific ester compound and a water-soluble inorganic salt. However, the specific ester compound indicated in the examples (glyceryl (behenate/ eicosadioate)) is not in the form of a water-in-oil emulsion, and although it demonstrates high moisture occlusion in the oil phase only, since it is a solid composition, the skin spreadability and storage stability of an external skin preparation incorporating this ester compound were not satisfactory.

[0011] With the foregoing in view, there has been a desire for a vaseline-like composition that realizes moisture occlusion comparable to that of vaseline, has superior skin spreadability, superior skin blendability and little stickiness.

[0013] An object of the present invention is to provide a vaseline-like composition that realizes moisture occlusion comparable to that of vaseline, has superior skin spreadability, superior skin blendability and little stickiness, and a cosmetic that incorporates this composition.

[Means for Solving the Problems]



[0014] As a result of conducting extensive studies to solve the aforementioned problems, the inventors of the present invention found that by mixing: I) one or more types of ester compounds selected from diisostearyl malate and diglyceryl triisostearate, II) a hydrocarbon wax having a melting point of 70°C to 130°C, and III) at least one type of compound selected from poly(12-hydroxystearic acid) having an average degree of polymerization of 3 to 20, a poly(12-hydroxystearic acid) derivative obtained by esterifying poly(12-hydroxystearic acid) having an average degree of polymerization of 3 to 20 and a polyvalent alcohol having valence of 5 or more, and a dimer dilinoleic acid derivative at a specific ratio, a composition is obtained that realizes moisture occlusion comparable to that of vaseline, superior skin spreadability, superior skin blendability and little stickiness, thereby leading to completion of the present invention.

[Effects of the Invention]



[0015] According to the present invention, a vaseline-like composition that realizes moisture occlusion comparable to that of vaseline, has superior skin spreadability, superior skin blendability and little stickiness and can serve as a raw material of various types of cosmetics, and a cosmetic incorporating the vaseline-like composition, can be provided.

BEST MODE FOR CARRYING OUT THE INVENTION



[0016] The following provides a detailed explanation of the present invention. The vaseline-like composition of the present invention consisting of the following components (C) or (E) at 5% by weight to 20% by weight, the following component (A) at 40% by weight to 90% by weight, and the following component (B) at 5% by weight to 50% by weight:

(A) one or more types of ester compounds selected from diisostearyl malate and diglyceryl triisostearate;

(B) a hydrocarbon wax having a melting point of 70°C to 130°C;

(C) a poly(12-hydroxystearic acid) having an average degree of polymerization of 3 to 20;
and,

(E) a dimer dilinoleic acid derivative.



[0017] The vaseline-like composition of the present invention contains one or more types of ester compounds selected from diisostearyl malate and diglyceryl triisostearate as component (A) .

[0018] The incorporated amount of component (A) is 40% by weight to 90% by weight, preferably 50% by weight to 90% by weight, more preferably 60% by weight to 90% by weight, even more preferably 70% by weight to 90% by weight, and particularly preferably 80% by weight to 90% by weight based on the weight of the vaseline-like composition. As a result of making the incorporated amount of component (A) to be within these ranges, a vaseline-like composition can be prepared that has superior moisture occlusion, superior skin spreadability and blendability, and little stickiness.

[0019] The vaseline-like composition of the present invention contains a hydrocarbon wax having a melting point of 70°C to 130°C as component (B). As a result of making the melting point to be 70°C to 130°C, a vaseline-like composition can be prepared that has superior moisture occlusion, superior skin spreadability and blendability, and little stickiness.

[0020] The hydrocarbon wax having a melting point of 70°C to 130°C is preferably one or more types selected from polyethylene wax, paraffin wax, ceresin wax and ozocerite. One type of the aforementioned hydrocarbon wax may be used alone or two or more types may be used in combination.

[0021] The incorporated amount of component (B) is 5% by weight to 50% by weight, preferably 5% by weight to 40% by weight, more preferably 5% by weight to 30% by weight, and even more preferably 5% by weight to 20% by weight based on the weight of the vaseline-like composition. If the incorporated amount of component (B) is made to be within these ranges, a vaseline-like composition can be prepared that has superior moisture occlusion, superior skin spreadability and blendability, and little stickiness.

[0022] The vaseline-like composition of the present invention contains one type or two or more types of components selected from components (C) or (E).

[0023] In the present invention, component (C) is a poly(12-hydroxystearic acid) having an average degree of polymerization of 3 to 20. As a result of their incorporation, a vaseline-like composition can be prepared that has superior moisture occlusion, superior skin spreadability and blendability, and little stickiness.

[0024]  The poly (12-hydroxystearic acid) of the present invention is a polymer of 12-hydroxystearic acid having a single hydroxyl group in a molecule thereof. Since 12-hydroxystearic acid can be obtained by, for example, hydrogenating ricinoleic acid obtained by hydrolyzing castor seed oil, poly(12-hydroxystearic acid) can be obtained by carrying out a polymerization reaction of the aforementioned 12-hydroxystearic acid. The polymerization reaction of 12-hydroxystearic acid is an intermolecular esterification reaction consisting of esterification of a hydroxyl group or carboxyl group in a molecule of 12-hydroxystearic acid with a hydroxyl group or carboxylic acid group in another molecule of 12-hydroxystearic acid. There are no particular limitations on the esterification method, and esterification can be carried out in accordance with ordinary methods.

[0025] The average degree of polymerization of the poly(12-hydroxystearic acid) is 3 to 20, preferably 5 to 20, more preferably 5 to 15 and particularly preferably 5 to 10. If the average degree of polymerization is within the aforementioned ranges, a vaseline-like composition can be prepared that has superior moisture occlusion, superior skin spreadability and blendability, and little stickiness. The average degree of polymerization can be made to be within the aforementioned ranges by measuring the acid value of the reaction product during the course of the polymerization reaction of 12-hydroxystearic acid. Namely, this can be easily carried out by sampling the reaction product during the course of the polymerization reaction of 12-hydroxystearic acid, calculating the average degree of polymerization by measuring the acid value thereof, and terminating the esterification reaction at the point the average degree of polymerization has reached a desired average degree of polymerization.

[0026] In the present invention, component (E) is a dimer dilinoleic acid derivative. As a result of incorporating a dimer dilinoleic acid derivative, a vaseline-like composition can be prepared that has superior moisture occlusion, superior skin spreadability and blendability, and little stickiness.

[0027] In the present invention the dimer dilinoleic acid derivative, is an ester of an alcohol and one or more types of acids selected from dimer dilinoleic acid and hydrogenated dimer dilinoleic acid.

[0028] The dimer dilinoleic acid refers to a known dibasic acid obtained by dimerizing an unsaturated fatty acid composed mainly of linoleic acid by an intermolecular polymerization reaction.

[0029] A hydrogenated dimer dilinoleic acid can be obtained by reducing (hydrogenating) the aforementioned dimer dilinoleic acid.

[0030] The alcohol which forms an ester bond with one or more types of acids selected from dimer dilinoleic acid and hydrogenated dimer dilinoleic acid, is one or more types of alcohols selected from cholesterol, phytosterol and monovalent alcohols having 4 to 22 carbon atoms. In addition, the monovalent alcohols having 4 to 22 carbon atoms may be saturated or unsaturated and linear or branched.

[0031] More specifically, one or more types selected from cholesterol, phytosterol and monovalent alcohols having 4 to 22 carbon atoms are preferably used for the ester-bonding alcohol. The essential use of one or more types of alcohols selected from cholesterol and phytosterol is more preferable. The use of one or more types of alcohols selected from cholesterol and phytosterol and one or more types of alcohols selected from an saturated or unsaturated, linear or branched monovalent alcohol having 4 to 22 carbon atoms is even more preferable. The use of one or more types of alcohols selected from cholesterol and phytosterol and one or more types of alcohols selected from stearyl alcohol, isostearyl alcohol cetyl alcohol is most preferable.

[0032] When the total amount of alcohol that ester-bonds per 1 molecule of dimer dilinoleic acid or hydrogenated dimer dilinoleic acid is assigned a molar ratio of 1, the content of cholesterol and phytosterol is preferably a molar ratio of 0.05 to 0.9, more preferably a molar ratio of 0.1 to 0.8, and even more preferably a molar ratio of 0.2 to 0.7.

[0033] One type of the aforementioned component (E) may be used alone or two or more types may be used in combination.

[0034] In the present invention, only one type of components (C) or (E) may be used, or two or more types may be used in combination. In the case of using only one type of components (C)or (E), superior effects are obtained by using component (E).

[0035] The total incorporated amount of components (C) and (E) based on the weight of the vaseline-like composition is 5% by weight to 20% by weight, preferably 5% by weight to 15% by weight, and more preferably 5% by weight to 12% by weight. As a result of incorporating these components within these ranges, a vaseline-like composition can be prepared that has superior moisture occlusion, superior skin spreadability and blendability, and little stickiness.

[0036] Various types of components typically used in compositions for use in vaseline-like compositions and cosmetic applications can be incorporated in the vaseline-like composition of the present invention in addition to the aforementioned components within a range that does not impair the effects of the present invention. More specifically, water, oily components other than components (A) to (C), anionic surfactants, cationic surfactants, amphoteric surfactants, nonionic surfactants, powdered components, moisturizers, natural water-soluble polymers, semi-synthetic water-soluble polymers, synthetic water-soluble polymers, inorganic water-soluble polymers, ultraviolet absorbers, metal ion sequestering agents, lower alcohols, polyvalent alcohols, monosaccharides, oligosaccharides, amino acids, organic amines, synthetic resin emulsions, pH regulators, vitamins, antioxidants, antioxidant synergists, antiseptics, salts or fragrances and the like can be suitably incorporated as necessary.

[0088] 172 g (0.3 moles) of dimer dilinoleic acid (Unichema Corp., Pripol 1006), 79 g (0.2 moles) of phytosterol (Tama Biochemical Co., Ltd.), 50 g of heptane and 0.5 g of para-toluene sulfonic acid were added to a 1 L four-necked flask equipped with a stirrer, thermometer, nitrogen gas inlet tube and moisture separator, followed by heating to within the range of 100°C to 110°C in the presence of flowing nitrogen and reacting for 8 hours while removing water formed during the reaction. Subsequently, 108 g (0.4 moles) of isostearyl alcohol (Sasol Inc., Isofol 18E) were further added and allowed to react for 10 hours. After cooling, the reaction mixture was diluted with heptane and unreacted carboxylic acid was removed by washing with aqueous sodium hydroxide solution. The solvent was then distilled off under reduced pressure to obtain 320 g of the dimer dilinoleic acid derivative (phytosteryl/isostearyl dimer dilinoleate) of Synthesis Example 7 (yield: 90%). In the dimer dilinoleic acid derivative of Synthesis Example 7, the molar ratio of phytosterol to the total amount of ester-bonded alcohol per 1 molecule of dimer dilinoleic acid was 0.33.

(Synthesis Example 8) Cholesteryl/Stearyl/Cetyl Dimer Dilinoleate



[0089] 172 g (0.3 moles) of dimer dilinoleic acid (Unichema Corp., Pripol 1006), 79 g (0.2 moles) of cholesterol, 50 g of heptane and 0.5 g of para-toluene sulfonic acid were added to a 1 L four-necked flask equipped with a stirrer, thermometer, nitrogen gas inlet tube and moisture separator, followed by heating to 100°C to within the range of 110°C in the presence of flowing nitrogen and reacting for 8 hours while removing water formed during the reaction. Subsequently, 54 g (0.2 moles) of stearyl alcohol and 48 g (0.2 moles) of cetyl alcohol were further added and allowed to react for 10 hours. After cooling, the reaction mixture was diluted with heptane and unreacted carboxylic acid was removed by washing with aqueous sodium hydroxide solution. The solvent was then distilled off under reduced pressure to obtain 270 g of the dimer dilinoleic acid derivative (cholesteryl/stearyl/cetyl dimer dilinoleate) of Synthesis Example 8 (yield: 90%). In the dimer dilinoleic acid derivative of Synthesis Example 8, the molar ratio of cholesterol to the total amount of ester-bonded alcohol 1 per molecule of dimer dilinoleic acid was 0.33.

Vaseline-like Compositions (Examples 1 to 28 and Comparative Examples 1 to 35)


[Sample Preparation Method]



[0090] Each component was weighed out according to the incorporated amounts indicated in Tables 1 to 10, and after warming and dissolving at 110°C and stirring to uniformity, the mixtures were cooled to room temperature while continuing to stir to obtain vaseline-like compositions of Examples 1 to 28 and Comparative Examples 1 to 35.

[Evaluation of Moisture Occlusion]



[0091] Moisture occlusion was evaluated by observing changes in electrical conductivity of the horny layer of skin before and after applying the samples using the "Skicon 200" manufactured by I.B.S. Co., Ltd. The "Skicon 200" measures electrical conductivity of the horny layer by applying a high-frequency voltage to the horny layer, and an increase in electrical conductivity is measured when the moisture content of the horny layer is high. Namely, when a sample having high moisture occlusion is applied to the skin, moisture transpiration is inhibited, thereby resulting in an increase in skin moisture content and causing an increase in electrical conductivity to be measured as compared with prior to application of the sample.

[0092] A mark covering an area of 2 cm × 2 cm was made on the insides of the forearms of 10 panelists followed by measurement of electrical conductivity of the horny layer before sample application. 20 µL of each sample were spread out on the skin and allowed to stand for 2 hours, followed by wiping off the sample with a cotton swab soaked in hexane. Electrical conductivity of the horny layer was measured with the "Skicon 200" immediately thereafter to measure the change in electrical conductivity following sample application. Electrical conductivity after sample application of 400% or more was assigned a score of 2, that of 200% to 400% was assigned a score of 1 and that of less than 200% was assigned a score of 0 based on a value of 100% for electrical conductivity prior to sample application, and moisture occlusion was evaluated as being acceptable when the total scores of the 10 panelists were evaluated as ⊚ or ○ as indicated below.
⊚: Total score of 18 or higher
○: Total score of 14 to 17
Δ: Total score of 10 to 13
×: Total score of 6 to 9
××: Total score of 5 or lower

[Evaluation of Skin Spreadability]



[0093] Ten panelists were made to apply each sample to the skin to obtain a sensory evaluation of skin spreadability. Vaseline (Nisshin OilliO Group, Ltd., "Nomcoat W") was used as a comparative sample, skin spreadability more favorable than that of the comparative sample was assigned a score of 2, that equal to spreadability of the comparative sample was assigned a score of 1, and that worse than spreadability of the comparative sample was assigned a score of 0, and skin spreadability was evaluated as being acceptable when the total scores of the 10 panelists were evaluated as ⊚ or ○ as indicated below.
⊚: Total score of 18 or higher
○: Total score of 14 to 17
Δ: Total score of 10 to 13
×: Total score of 6 to 9
××: Total score of 5 or lower

[Evaluation of Stickiness]



[0094] Ten panelists were made to apply each sample to the skin to obtain a sensory evaluation of stickiness. Vaseline (Nisshin OilliO Group, Ltd., "Nomcoat W") was used as a comparative sample, stickiness less than that of the comparative sample was assigned a score of 2, that equal to stickiness of the comparative sample was assigned a score of 1, and stickiness greater than that of the comparative sample was assigned a score of 0, and stickiness was evaluated as being acceptable when the total scores of the 10 panelists were evaluated as ⊚ or ○ as indicated below.
⊚: Total score of 18 or higher
○: Total score of 14 to 17
Δ: Total score of 10 to 13
×: Total score of 6 to 9
××: Total score of 5 or lower

[Evaluation of Skin Blendability]
