Publication number: US20220183948A1
Application number: 17/549,980

Cellular energy levels in skin cells affected by oxidative stress can be improved through the use of a skin care composition that includes a sucrose ester and a fatty alcohol present at a specific ratio. The fatty alcohol and sucrose ester, when incorporated into a skin care composition at a specific ratio, can provide a synergistic improvement in cellular ATP level for skin cells suffering from the effects of oxidative stress.

Publication number: US20220183946A1
Application number: 17/549,970

The present invention is directed to a method of manufacturing a cosmetic composition comprising a step of preparing a mixture of: (a) one or more esters of sucrose and fatty acids, wherein the fatty acids are selected from those having from about 12 to about 24 carbon atoms, and wherein the sucrose esters are selected from the group consisting of mono-ester, di-ester, tri-ester, tetra-ester, and mixtures thereof; and (b) one or more solvents selected from those having Hildebrand Solubility Parameter of from about 23 to about 31.5(J/cm3)1/2 and Polar component of Hansen Solubility Parameter of from about 4.5 to about 10.5 (J/cm3)1/2. By the method of manufacturing the cosmetic composition of the present invention, the sucrose esters can be dissolved in the cosmetic compositions, even when the sucrose esters are contained at higher levels in the compositions and/or even when the sucrose esters are contained in an aqueous phase of the cosmetic composition.

Application number: 17/549,989

Sucrose esters such as sucrose laurate and sucrose dilaurate are notoriously difficult to emulsify in an oil-in-water emulsion and tend to destabilize these types of emulsions. It has now been found that combining a sucrose ester with certain hydrophobically modified aqueous rheology modifier and non-ionic stearic acid derivative emulsifiers can greatly improve emulsion stability.
