Politics & Government Week |

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Politics & Government Week -- A patent application by the inventors Fuchs, Sandra (Pinneberg, DE); Puls, Anna (Winsen (Luhe); DE), filed on , was made available online on , according to news reporting originating from Washington, D.C., by VerticalNews correspondents.

This patent application is assigned to Henkel AG & Co. KGaA.

The following quote was obtained by the news editors from the background information supplied by the inventors: "Styling agents for deforming keratinous fibers have long been recognized and are used in various forms for creating, refreshing and setting hairstyles which, for many types of hair, can be achieved only using firming active ingredients. Both hair treatment agents that lend the hair a permanent shape, as well as those that lend the hair a temporary shape, play an important role here.

"Sprayable products, as well as product formats that are worked into the hairstyle using a comb or the fingers, are suitable for the temporary shaping of keratinous fibers. The latter product group comprises oils, as well as waxes, gels, creams and powders.

"A current trend in temporary hair shaping is the 'undone look' or 'out of bed look'. A hairstyle in line with this trend appears styled, without the styling agent being immediately apparent, in the form of an oily shine for example. This customer requirement can be realized first and foremost by means of sprays and powders, since such product formats usually contain only small proportions of waxes and oils. However, powders and sprays in particular cannot be applied directly to the hair by means of a comb or the fingers.

"A direct application with the fingers, on the other hand, is possible in the case of wax-like hair shaping agents. Although such application offers advantages for individual hair styling, this usually requires the addition of high melting point oils and waxes, which leave behind an oily shine on the hair after use."

In addition to the background information obtained for this patent application, VerticalNews journalists also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "Agents and compositions and methods are provided for the temporary shaping of keratinous fibers. In an exemplary embodiment, a cosmetic composition includes from about 1.0 to about 20 wt. % wax; from about 0.1 to about 1.5 wt. % thickener; from about 1.0 to about 15 wt. % emulsifier; from about 1.0 to about 15 wt. % film-forming polymer; from about 1.0 to about 15 wt. % organic polyol; and from about 1.0 to about 90 wt. % water, all in relation to the overall weight of the cosmetic composition, wherein the weight ratio of the wax to the thickener is from about 40:1 to about 1:1."
