COSMETIC COMPOSITION COMPRISING SPECIFIC HYPERBRANCHED COPOLYMERS AND ANIONIC EMULSIFIERS

Technical Field

The present invention relates to the field of cosmetics, particularly to field of skin care and sun care.

Background of the invention

In the field of cosmetic the details of a cosmetic composition, i.e. a formulation, are very sensitive to aspects of texture, feel and visual aspects.

A big problem is that material of such a composition when applied to a surface, particularly to the skin, can be transferred to another surface when said other surface is brought in contact with said composition. Such a transfer is nega tive in two ways: First of all, the transfer of the material is not desired as it is re-moved from the site of action, such as treating, moisturizing or protecting the skin. Secondly, the surface of contact is contaminated with said material. Particularly fabrics, such as clothes can be stained. Furthermore, decorative or functional surfaces can be contaminated which is negative for the functionality, respectively, for their visual or aesthetic properties. Particularly, displays of mobile phones, screens, or touch screens can be negatively affected by such material transfer.

Summary of the invention

Flence, there exist a great desire to reduce such a transfer of cosmetic compositions from surface to surface when the surfaces are contacted.

Surprisingly, it has been found that the cosmetic compositions of claim 1 can solve this problem.

It has been found that the combination of a specific hyperbranched copolymer and anionic emusifier(s) heavily reduce the material transfer of such compositions to contacted surfaces.

Further aspects of the invention are subject of further independent claims.

Particularly preferred embodiments are subject of dependent claims.

Detailed description of the invention

ln a first aspect the present invention relates to a cosmetic composition comprising

a hyperbranched copolymer of the monomers

(i) dodecenyl succinic acid anhydride

(ii) diisopropanol amine

(iii) bis-dimethylaminopropyl amine

having terminal groups of formula


and having a molecular weight Mn of between 1200 and 4000 g/mol; and at least one anionic emulsifier.

The term "molecular weight Mn" stands for the number average molecular weight.

The term "preparation" or "formulation" is used in this document as equivalent to the term "composition".

The term "material transfer" in this document means the mass transfer of the cosmetic composition or some ingredients thereof when the cosmetic composition is applied to a surface and afterwards said surface is brought in contact with a surface of a different object and separated again. By this contact some material is transferred from the first surface to the surface of the different object. The amount of material transferred can be determined by measuring the weight gain of the second object.

The hyperbranched copolymer is preferably prepared by the following consecutive steps of:

a1 ) polymerizing the monomers (i) and monomers (ii) and monomers (iii) to yield a polyesteramide having terminal dimethyl amino groups of the

- N

formula \

a2) quaternization of the dimethyl amino groups of the polyesteramide of step a1 ) by 2-chloroacetate, particularly by sodium 2-chloroacetate.

The term "topical" as used herein is understood here to mean external application to keratinous substances, which are in particular the skin, scalp, eyelashes, eyebrows, nails, mucous membranes and hair, preferably the skin.

As the topical compositions are intended for topical application, it is well understood that they comprise a physiologically acceptable medium, i.e. a medium compatible with keratinous substances, such as the skin, mucous membranes, and keratinous fibres. In particular, the physiologically acceptable medium is a cosmetically acceptable carrier.

The term "cosmetically acceptable carrier" refers to all carriers and/or excipients and/ or diluents conventionally used in cosmetic compositions such as in particular in sun care products.

Preferably the cosmetic composition is a skin care preparation, decorative preparation, or a functional preparation.

Examples of skin care preparations are, in particular, light protective preparations, anti-ageing preparations, preparations for the treatment of photo ageing, body oils, body lotions, body gels, treatment creams, skin protection ointments, skin powders, moisturizing gels, moisturizing sprays, face and/or body moisturizers, skin-tanning preparations (i.e. compositions for the artificial/sunless tanning and/or browning of human skin), for example self-tanning creams as well as skin lightening preparations.

Examples of functional preparations are cosmetic or pharmaceutical com positions containing active ingredients such as hormone preparations, vitamin pre parations, vegetable extract preparations and/or anti-ageing preparations without being limited thereto.

The cosmetic composition is preferably a skin care composition.

In a most preferred embodiment, the cosmetic composition is a sun care composition. Sun care compositions are light-protective preparations (sun care products), such as sun protection milks, sun protection lotions, sun protection creams, sun protection oils, sun blocks or day care creams with a SPF (sun protection factor). Of particular interest are sun protection creams, sun protection lotions, sun protection milks and sun protection preparations.

The cosmetic compositions according to the present invention may be in the form of a suspension or dispersion in solvents or fatty substances, or alternatively in the form of an emulsion or micro emulsion (in particular of oil-in water (0/W-) or water-in-oil (W/0-)type, silicone-in-water (Si/W-) or water-in-silicone (W/Si-)type, PIT-emulsion, multiple emulsion (e.g. oil-in-water-in oil (0/W/0-) or water-in-oil-in-water (W/0/W-)type), pickering emulsion, hydrogel, alcoholic gel, lipogel, one- or multiphase solution or vesicular dispersion or other usual forms, which can also be applied by pens, as masks or as sprays.

Preferred cosmetic compositions in all embodiments of the present invention are emulsions which contain an oily phase and an aqueous phase such as in particular O/W, W/O, Si/W, W/Si, O/W/O, W/O/W multiple or a pickering emulsions.

The total amount of the oily phase present in such emulsions is preferably at least 10 wt.-%, such as in the range from 10 to 60 wt.-%, preferably in the range from 15 to 50 wt.-%, most preferably in the range from 15 to 40 wt.-%, based on the total weight of the cosmetic composition.

The amount of the aqueous phase present in such emulsions is preferably at least 20 wt. %, such as in the range from 40 to 90 wt.-%, preferably in the range from 50 to 85 wt.-%, most preferably in the range from 60 to 85 wt.-%, based on the total weight of the cosmetic composition.

More preferably, the cosmetic compositions according to the present invention are in the form of an oil-in-water (O/W) emulsion comprising an oily phase dispersed in an aqueous phase in the presence of an O/W- respectively Si/W-emulsifier as such compositions show a significantly pronounced reduction of the transfer of the respective composition to surfaces. The preparation of such O/W emulsions is well known to a person skilled in the art.

The compositions in form of O/W emulsions according to the invention can be provided, for example, in all the formulation forms for O/W emulsions, for example in the form of serum, milk or cream, and they are prepared according to the usual methods. The compositions which are subject-matters of the invention are preferably intended for topical application and can in particular constitute a dermatological or cosmetic composition, for example intended for protecting human skin against the adverse effects of UV radiation (antiwrinkle, anti-ageing, moisturizing, anti-sun protection and the like).

It has been found that the cosmetic compositions have a strongly reduced material transfer to a contacted surface when the specific hyperbranched copolymer of the monomers

(i) dodecenyl succinic acid anhydride

(ii) diisopropanol amine

(iii) bis-dimethylaminopropyl amine

having terminal groups of formula


having a molecular weight Mn of between 1200 and 4000 g/mol is used together with at least one anionic emulsifier.

Hence, a further aspect of the present invention is the use of a hyperbranched copolymer of the monomers

(i) dodecenyl succinic acid anhydride

(ii) diisopropanol amine

(iii) bis-dimethylaminopropyl amine

having terminal groups of formula


and having a molecular weight Mn of between 1200 and 4000 g/mol in a cosmetic composition comprising at least one anionic emulsifier for reducing the material transfer to a contacted surface.

The amount of material transfer is determined by determination of the weight of the object (second object) before and after contact. Any weight gain after contact is due to a material transfer from the first to the second object. The reduction of material transfer is determined by comparing compositions according to the inventions with the respective (not according to the invention) composition which does not contain the above hyperbranched copolymer, respectively the anionic emulsifier. The reduction is expressed in % of the material transfer of the two measurements.

It has been found that the reduction of more than 40 %, even more than 45%, particularly more than 50 %, can be obtained.

The cosmetic composition is applied to a first surface. Said surface is preferably skin, particularly human skin. It has been found that using a porous sponge instead of skin is a good approach for simulate a material transfer from skin to another surface.

The surface of the contacted object (second object) is preferably a glass surface or a plastic or a surface of a fabric.

In case the surface is a fabric, this is very advantages to avoid an unwanted transfer of cosmetic composition to a fabric, particularly to clothes, as the cosmetic composition might stain the fabric.

Particularly, the contacted surface (i.e. surface of second object) is a glass surface.

Most preferably, the contacted surface (i.e. surface of second object) is an optical glass such as used for reading glasses or sunglasses or a display of screen of a smartphone display of a mobile phone, computer device or tablet.

By reducing the material transfer of the cosmetic composition, particularly the problem of marks, particularly finger marks, left on glasses such as optical glasses of instruments or visual glasses when said glass surface is contacted with fingers can be reduced or even avoided. Particularly, this can heavily reduce or even avoid any undesired effects on the light rays transmitted through said glass by said material left on the surface.

Furthermore, marks left on the surface of an aesthetic surface such as of a mirror or a highly glossy or highly mat surface such as a of a top coat of a car or furniture or piece of art, can be strongly reduced. This is very advantageous as such surfaces need a high amount of cleaning maintenance, if they are brought in contact with skin on which cosmetic compositions have been applied, particularly if they are touched by fingers which have been previously in contact with cosmetic compositions.

Marks left on the surface of display units, such as displays of mobile phones, screens, or touch screens of monitors, laptops, mobile phones or tablets can be strongly reduced. As a result of this, the readability can be improved. As the functionality of touch screens depends on surface aspects, the invention helps also to improve constant touch screen functionality without excessive need of cleaning said glass surface.

The reduction of material transfer also heavily reduces the labour and cost involved in the cleaning of said surfaces when they are contacted with skin.

Examples

The present invention is further illustrated by the following experiments. These examples are illustrative only and are not intended to limit the scope of the invention in any way.

Preparation of hyperbranched copolymer (HBC1)

The hyperbranched copolymer HBC1 of the monomers dodecenyl succinic acid anhydride and diisopropanol amine and bis-dimethylaminopropyl amine has been prepared according to example 3 in EP 2 794 729 B1 using 237.59 g of N,N-bis(N’N’-dimethylaminopropyl)amine and 112.6 g diisopropanol amine and 426.89 g of dodecenylsuccinic anhydride. After heating and vacuum, the residual carboxylic acid content of < 0.3 meq/g (tritrimetrical analysis)

AV=9.8mg KOH/g and amine content of 2.99 meq/g (tritrimetrical analysis) and a molecular weight Mn=2240 was obtained. This product has been reacted with sodium chloroacetate in water and stirred at 80°C until 1H-NMR analysis shows a complete conversion of the chloroacetate to obtain the hyperbranched copolymer HBC1 which has terminal groups of the formula


molecular weight Mn of 2.3 kDa.

The hyperbranched copolymer HBC1 was used as a 45 % solution in water in the following experiments.

Material Transfer

The material transfer has been determined with the sponge test as outlined in the following:

- Cut a sponge cloth (Weitawip Claire, from Weita AG: cellulose/cotton fiber mixture, 200 g/m2, 5 mm thickness) into pieces of 76mm x 26mm

- Tare the sponge sample

- Apply 350 mg of the respective sample (= cosmetic composition) and distribute homogenously all over the sponge surface of 76 mm x 26 mm

- Weigh the sponge with the applied sample

- Tare a microscope slide (glass plate 76 mm x 26 mm x 1 mm)

- Put the microscope slide (glass plate) on top of the sponge, on which a balance weight of 500g (height: 6.3 cm, diameter at area of contact: 3.7 cm) is placed for 10 seconds to apply a specific pressure to the sample

- Remove cautiously vertically the microscope slide

Weigh the removed microscope slide and determine accordingly the amount of sample transferred to the glass plate

- Repeat the test for each composition 10 times to receive an average value (mean value) for each sample.

Preparation of cosmetic compositions

The ingredients (in % by weight) of the oil phase according to table 1 have been combined and heated up to 85°C. The ingredients (in % by weight) of the water phase according to tablel have been combined, stirred until the Xanthan Gum is completely dissolved and then heated up to 80°C. The two phases have been combined and homogenized for 1 minute with 10Ό00 rpm. Under moderate stirring the emulsion is cooled down to 35°C. In case a hyperbranched copolymer is used in an example, the respective hyperbranched polymer (in % by weight) is now added to the emulsion under stirring. The stirring has been continued until the emulsion reached room temperature. The amounts of ingredients of the

compositions (sum up to 100 % by weight) used are chosen so that each composition has a total weight of 70 grams.

3 Arlacel 165 (Croda Inc) 4 Brij -S721 (Croda Inc) 5 Dehymuls SMS (BASF) The results of table 1 clearly show that samples with the specific hyper-branched copolymer have a significant higher reduction in material transfer than the respective reference examples ("Ref.") without said copolymer ( 1 vs. Ref.1,

2 vs. Ref.2). Furthermore, the results of table 1 also clearly shows the influence of the anionic emulsifier. It shows that an anionic emulsifier shows a significantly higher reduction of material transfer as compared to non-ionic emulsifiers ( Ref.3 -Ref.8).

The positive results and effect of reduction of material transfer by the composition according to the invention of the above experiments can also be found when the above compositions are applied to finger tips and a touch screen of an Samsung S9 display is touched with such a finger and the amounts of markings on the screen is visually assessed.
