Description

The present invention relates to a cosmetic lip makeup composition comprising a particular block polymer.

Lipstick compositions are commonly used to give the lips an aesthetic colour. These makeup products generally contain fatty phases such as waxes and oils, pigments and/or fillers and optionally additives, for instance cosmetic or dermatological active agents.

When these compositions are applied to the lips, they have the drawback of transferring, i.e. of becoming at least partly deposited, and leaving marks, on certain supports with which they may come into contact and especially a glass, a cup, a cigarette, an item of clothing or the skin. This results in poor staying power of the applied film, making it necessary to regularly repeat the application of the lipstick composition. Moreover, the lip makeup result may also be impaired during contact with liquids, especially water or drinks consumed during a meal, for example, or alternatively oils, for instance dietary oils or alternatively sebum or saliva.

Lip makeup compositions that form a deposit that has good staying power on contact with the liquids brought into contact with the makeup, especially during a meal, are thus sought.

The aim of the present invention is to provide a novel route for formulating a cosmetic lip makeup product, which make it possible to obtain good staying power properties of the makeup.

The inventors have discovered that it is possible to obtain such a composition by using a particular block polymer as described hereinbelow. The composition makes it possible to obtain a deposit on the lips, which has good resistance properties, in particular resistance after coming into contact with water or with a dietary oil.

One subject of the present invention is thus, more specifically, a cosmetic composition for making up the lips (or lipstick) comprising at least one cosmetically acceptable organic liquid medium and at least one film-forming linear block ethylenic polymer as described hereinbelow, the composition especially being as defined hereinbelow.

Advantageously, according to a first embodiment of the composition according to the invention, the film-forming linear block ethylenic polymer is free of styrene and is such that, when it is present in sufficient amount in the composition, the said composition is capable of forming a deposit that has a resistive index of greater than or equal to 80%.

Advantageously, according to a second embodiment of the composition according to the invention, the film-forming linear block ethylenic polymer is non-elastomeric and is such that when it is present in sufficient amount in the composition, the said composition is capable of forming a deposit that has a resistive index of greater than or equal to 80%.

A subject of the invention is also a cosmetic process for making up the lips, comprising the application to the lips of a composition as defined above.

A subject of the invention is also the use of a composition as defined above, to obtain a deposit of makeup on the lips that has good resistance, in particular good resistance after coming into contact with water or with a dietary oil.

A subject of the invention is also the use of a block polymer as defined above, in a composition for making up the lips, comprising a cosmetically acceptable organic liquid medium, to obtain a makeup for the lips that has good resistance, in particular good resisance after coming into contact with water or with a dietary oil.

Advantageously, the linear film-forming block ethylenic polymer used in the composition according to the invention is such that, when it is present in sufficient amount in the composition, the said composition is capable of forming a deposit that has a resist index of greater than or equal to 80%, preferably greater than or equal to 85%, preferably less than or equal to 90% and preferably greater than or equal to 95%.

The resistive index of the deposit obtained with the composition according to the invention is determined according to the measuring protocol described below.

A support (40 mm×70 mm rectangle) consisting of an acrylic coating (hypoallergenic acrylic adhesive on polyethylene film sold under the name Blenderme ref FH5000-55113 by the company 3M Santé) bonded onto a layer of polyethylene foam that is adhesive on the face opposite that onto which the adhesive plaster is applied (layer of foam sold under the name RE40X70EP3 from the company Joint Technique Lyonnais Ind.) is prepared.

The colour L*0a*0b*0 of the support, on the acrylic coating side, is measured using a Minolta CR 300 colorimeter.

The support thus prepared is preheated on a hotplate maintained at a temperature of 40° C. so that the surface of the support is maintained at a temperature of 33° C.±1° C.

While leaving the support on the hotplate, the composition is applied to the entire non-adhesive surface of the support (i.e. to the surface of the acrylic coating), spreading it out with a brush to obtain a deposit of about 15 μm of the composition, and it is then left to dry for 10 minutes.

After drying, the colour L*a*b* of the film thus obtained is measured.

The difference in colour ΔE1 between the colour of the film relative to the colour of the plain support is then determined by means of the following relationship.
ΔE1=√{square root over ((L*−L 0*)2+(a*−a 0*)2+(b*−b 0*)2)}

The support is then bonded via its adhesive face (adhesive face of the layer of foam) to an anvil with a diameter of 20 mm and equipped with a screw pitch. A sample of the support/deposit assembly is then cut out using a punch 18 mm in diameter. The anvil is then screwed onto a press (Statif Manuel Imada SV-2 from the company Someco) equipped with a tensile testing machine (Imada DPS-20 from the company Someco).

A strip 33 mm wide and 29.7 cm long is drawn on a sheet of white photocopying paper with a basis weight of 80 g/m2, a first line is drawn 2 cm from the edge of the sheet, and a second line is then drawn 5 cm from the edge of the sheet, the first and second lines thus delimiting a box on the strip; a first mark and a second mark located in the strip at reference positions 8 cm and 16 cm, respectively, from the second line are then made. 20 μl of water are placed on the first mark and 10 μl of refined sunflower oil (sold by the company Lesieur) are placed on the second mark.

The white paper is placed on the base of the press and the sample placed on the box of the strip of paper is then pressed at a pressure of about 300 g/cm2 exerted for 30 seconds. The press is then moved and the sample is repositioned just after the second line (i.e. next to the box), a pressure of about 300 g/cm2 is again exerted, and the paper is moved, in a rectilinear manner once the contact has been made, at a speed of 1 cm/s, over the entire length of the strip such that the sample passes through the deposits of water and of oil.

After removing the sample, some of the deposit has become transferred onto the paper. The colour L*1,a*1,b*1 of the deposit remaining on the sample is then measured.

The difference in colour ΔE2 between the colour of the deposit which has remained on the test specimen relative to the colour of the plain support are then determined by means of the following relationship.
ΔE2=√{square root over ((L*′−L 0*′)2+(a*′−a 0*′)2+(b*′−b 0*′)2)}

The resistive index of the composition, expressed as a percentage, is equal to the ratio:
100×ΔE2/ΔE1

The measurement is performed on 6 supports in succession and the transfer value corresponds to the mean of the 6 measurements obtained with the 6 supports.

The term “organic liquid” means any non-aqueous product that is liquid at room temperature (25° C.).

The term “cosmetically acceptable organic liquid medium” means a medium comprising at least one organic compound that is liquid at room temperature (25° C.) and atmospheric pressure (105 Pa), which is compatible with keratin materials, especially the skin or the lips, such as the organic solvents and oils commonly used in cosmetic compositions.

The composition according to the invention may comprise a styrene-free film-forming linear block ethylenic block polymer.

The term “styrene-free polymer” means a polymer comprising less than 10%, preferably less than 5%, preferably less than 2% and more preferably less than 1%, or even containing no, styrene monomer such as styrene or styrene derivatives, for instance methylstyrene, chlorostyrene or chloromethylstyrene.

According to one embodiment, the block polymer of the composition according to the invention is derived from aliphatic ethylenic monomers. The term “aliphatic monomer” means a monomer comprising no aromatic groups.

The term “ethylenic polymer” means a polymer obtained by polymerization of monomers comprising an ethylenic unsaturation.

The term “block polymer” means a polymer comprising at least two different blocks and preferably at least three different blocks.

The polymer is a polymer of linear structure. In contrast, a polymer of non-linear structure is, for example, a polymer of branched structure, of starburst or grafted form, or the like.

The term “film-forming polymer” means a polymer capable of forming, by itself or in the presence of a film-forming auxiliary agent, a continuous film that adheres to a support, especially to keratin materials.

Preferentially, the polymer used in the composition according to the invention comprises no silicon atoms in its skeleton. The term “skeleton” means the main chain of the polymer, as opposed to the pendent side chains.

Advantageously, the block polymer comprises at least one first block and at least one second block that have different glass transition temperatures (Tg), the said first and second blocks being linked together via an intermediate block comprising at least one constituent monomer of the first block and at least one constituent monomer of the second block.

The term “at least one block” means one or more blocks.

It is pointed out that, in the text hereinabove and hereinbelow, the terms “first block” and “second block” do not in any way condition the order of the said blocks in the structure of the polymer.

Preferably, the first and second blocks of the said block polymer are mutually incompatible.

The term “mutually incompatible blocks” means that the blend formed from the polymer corresponding to the first block and from the polymer corresponding to the second block is not miscible in the organic liquid that is the majority amount by weight of the organic liquid medium of the composition, at room temperature (25° C.) and atmospheric pressure (105 Pa), for a polymer blend content of greater than or equal to 5% by weight, relative to the total weight of the blend (polymers and solvent), it being understood that:

i) the said polymers are present in the blend in a content such that the respective weight ratio ranges from 10/90 to 90/10, and that

ii) each of the polymers corresponding to the first and second blocks has an average (weight-average or number-average) molecular mass equal to that of the block polymer ±15%.

In the case where the organic liquid medium comprises a mixture of organic liquids, and should two or more organic liquids be present in identical mass proportions, the said polymer blend is immiscible in at least one of them.

Needless to say, in the case where the organic liquid medium comprises only one organic liquid, this liquid is the majority organic liquid.

Advantageously, the majority organic liquid of the composition is the organic solvent for polymerization of the block polymer or the majority organic solvent of the mixture of organic solvents for polymerization of the block polymer.

Preferably, the block polymer used in the composition according to the invention is not water-soluble, i.e. the polymer is not soluble in water or in a mixture of water and of linear or branched lower monoalcohols containing from 2 to 5 carbon atoms, for instance ethanol, isopropanol or n-propanol, without pH modification, at an active material content of at least 1% by weight, at room temperature (25° C.).

Preferably, the block polymer used in the composition according to the invention is not an elastomer.

The term “non-elastomeric polymer” means a polymer which, when it is subjected to a constraint intended to pull it (for example by 30% relative to its initial length), does not return to a length substantially identical to its initial length when the constraint ceases.

More specifically, the term “non-elastomeric polymer” denotes a polymer with an instantaneous recovery Ri<50% and a delayed recovery R2h<70% after having been subjected to a 30% elongation. Preferably, Ri is <30% and R2h<50%.

More specifically, the non-elastomeric nature of the polymer is determined according to the following protocol:

A polymer film is prepared by pouring a solution of the polymer in a Teflon-coated mould, followed by drying for 7 days in an environment conditioned at 23±5° C. and 50±10% relative humidity.

A film about 100 μm thick is thus obtained, from which are cut rectangular specimens (for example using a punch) 15 mm wide and 80 mm long.

This sample is subjected to a tensile stress using a machine sold under the reference Zwick, under the same temperature and humidity conditions as for the drying.

The specimens are pulled at a speed of 50 mm/min and the distance between the jaws is 50 mm, which corresponds to the initial length (l0) of the specimen.

The instantaneous recovery Ri is determined in the following manner:

the specimen is pulled by 30% (εmax), i.e. about 0.3 times its initial length (l0)

the constraint is released by applying a return speed equal to the tensile speed, i.e. 50 mm/min, and the residual elongation of the specimen is measured as a percentage, after returning to zero constraint (εi).

The percentage instantaneous recovery (Ri) is given by the following formula:
R i=(εmax−εi)/εmax)×100

To determine the delayed recovery, the percentage residual elongation of the specimen (ε2h) is measured.

The percentage delayed recovery (R2h) is given by the following formula:
R 2h=(εmax−ε2h)/εmax)×100

Purely as a guide, a polymer used according to one embodiment of the invention has an instantaneous recovery Ri of 10% and a delayed recovery R2h of 30%.

Advantageously, the block polymer used in the compositions according to the invention has a polydispersity index I of greater than 2.

The polydispersity index I of the polymer is equal to the ratio of the weight-average mass Mw to the number-average mass Mn.

The weight-average molar mass (Mw) and number-average molar mass (Mn) are determined by gel permeation liquid chromatography (THF solvent, calibration curve established with linear polystyrene standards, refractometric detector).

The weight-average mass (Mw) of the polymer used in the compositions according to the invention is preferably less than or equal to 300 000; it ranges, for example, from 35 000 to 200 000 and better still from 45 000 to 150 000.

The number-average mass (Mn) of the polymer used in the compositions according to the invention is preferably less than or equal to 70 000; it ranges, for example, from 10 000 to 60 000 and better still from 12 000 to 50 000.

The polydispersity index of the block polymer used in the compositions according to the invention is advantageously greater than 2, for example greater than 2 and less than or equal to 9, preferably greater than or equal to 2.5, for example ranging from 2.5 to 8, and better still greater than or equal to 2.8, especially from 2.8 to 6.

Each block of the polymer used in the composition according to the invention is derived from one type of monomer or from several different types of monomer.

This means that each block may consist of a homopolymer or a copolymer; this copolymer constituting the block may in turn be random or alternating.

Advantageously, the intermediate block comprising at least one constituent monomer of the first block and at least one constituent monomer of the second block of the polymer is a random polymer.

Preferably, the intermediate block is derived essentially from constituent monomers of the first block and of the second block.

The term “essentially” means at least 85%, preferably at least 90%, better still 95% and even better still 100%.

Advantageously, the intermediate block has a glass transition temperature Tg that is between the glass transition temperatures of the first and second blocks.

The glass transition temperatures indicated for the first and second blocks may be theoretical Tg values determined from the theoretical Tg values of the constituent monomers of each of the blocks, which may be found in a reference manual such as the Polymer Handbook, 3rd Edition, 1989, John Wiley, according to the following relationship, known as Fox's law: 1 / Tg = i ( ϖ i / Tg i ) ,
{overscore (ω)}i being the mass fraction of the monomer i in the block under consideration and Tgi being the glass transition temperature of the homopolymer of the monomer i.

Unless otherwise indicated, the Tg values indicated for the first and second blocks in the present patent application are theoretical Tg values.

Advantageously, the first and second blocks of the polymer are such that the difference between the glass transition temperatures of the first and second blocks is generally greater than 10° C., preferably greater than 20° C. and better still greater than 30° C.

In particular, the first block may be chosen from:

a) a block with a Tg of greater than or equal to 40° C.,

b) a block with a Tg of less than or equal to 20° C.,

c) a block with a Tg of between 20 and 40° C.,

and the second block can be chosen from a category a), b) or c) different from the first block.

In the present invention, the expression: “between . . . and . . . ” is intended to denote a range of values for which the limits mentioned are excluded, and “from . . . to . . . ” and “ranging from . . . to . . . ” are intended to denote a range of values for which the limits are included.

The term “fillers” should be understood as meaning colourless or white, mineral or synthetic particles of any shape, which are insoluble in the medium of the composition, irrespective of the temperature at which the composition is manufactured. These fillers serve especially to modify the rheology or the texture of the composition.

The fillers may be mineral or organic in any form, platelet-shaped, spherical or oblong, irrespective of the crystallographic form (for example leaflet, cubic, hexagonal, orthorhombic, etc.). Mention may be made of talc, mica, silica, kaolin, polyamide (Nylon®) powders (Orgasol® from Atochem), poly-β-alanine powder and polyethylene powder, powders of tetrafluoroethylene polymers (Teflon®), lauroyllysine, starch, boron nitride, hollow polymer microspheres such as those of polyvinylidene chloride/acrylonitrile, for instance Exapancel® (Nobel Industrie) or acrylic acid copolymers (Polytrap® from the company Dow Corning) and silicone resin microbeads (for example Tospearls® from Toshiba), elastomeric polyorganosiloxane particles, precipitated calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate, magnesium hydrocarbonate, hydroxyapatite, hollow silica microspheres (Silica Beads® from Maprecos), glass or ceramic microcapsules, and metal soaps derived from organic carboxylic acids containing from 8 to 22 carbon atoms and preferably from 12 to 18 carbon atoms, for example zinc, magnesium or lithium stearate, zinc laurate or magnesium myristate.

Needless to say, a person skilled in the art will take care to select this or these optional additional compound(s), and/or the amount thereof, such that the advantageous properties of the corresponding composition according to the invention are not, or are not substantially, adversely affected by the envisaged addition.

The composition according to the invention may especially be in the form of a suspension, a dispersion, a solution, a gel, an emulsion, especially an oil-in-water (O/W) emulsion or a water-in-oil (W/O) emulsion, in the form of a cream, a stick, a paste, especially a soft paste (especially a paste with a dynamic viscosity at 25° C. of about from 0.1 to 40 Pa·s under a shear rate of 200 s−1, after measurement for 10 minutes in cone/plate geometry). The composition may be anhydrous; for example, it may be an anhydrous stick or paste. The composition may be a leave-in composition.

A person skilled in the art may select the appropriate galenical form, and also the method for preparing it, on the basis of his general knowledge, taking into account firstly the nature of the constituents used, especially their solubility in the support, and secondly the intended application for the composition.

According to another aspect, the invention also relates to a cosmetic assembly comprising:

    • i) a container delimiting at least one compartment, the said container being closed by a closing member; and
    • ii) a composition placed inside the said compartment, the composition being in accordance with any one of the preceding claims.

The container may be in any adequate form. It may especially be in the form of a bottle, a tube, a case, a box or a carton.

The closing member may be in the form of a removable stopper, a lid, or a capsule, especially of the type comprising a body attached to the container and a cover cap articulated on the body. It may also be in the form of a member for selectively closing the container, especially a flap valve.

The container may be combined with an applicator. The applicator may be in the form of a block of foam or of elastomer, a felt or a spatula. The applicator may be free (tuft or sponge) or securely fastened to a rod borne by the closing member, as described, for example, in patent U.S. Pat. No. 5,492,426. The applicator may be securely fastened to the container, as described, for example, in patent FR 2 761 959.

The product may be contained directly in the container, or indirectly. By way of example, the product may be arranged on an impregnated support, especially in the form of a wipe or a pad, and arranged (individually or in plurality) in a box or in a sachet. Such a support incorporating the product is described, for example, in patent application WO 01/03538.

The closing member may be coupled to the container by screwing. Alternatively, the coupling between the closing member and the container is done other than by screwing, especially via a bayonet mechanism, by click-fastening, gripping or by magnetic attraction. The term “click-fastening” in particular means any system involving the crossing of a bead or cord of material by elastic deformation of a portion, especially of the closing member, followed by return to the elastically unconstrained position of the said portion after the crossing of the bead or cord.

The container may be at least partially made of thermoplastic material. Examples of thermoplastic materials that may be mentioned include polypropylene or polyethylene.

Alternatively, the container is made of non-thermoplastic material, especially glass or metal (or alloy).

The container may have rigid walls or deformable walls, especially in the form of a tube or a tubular bottle.

The container may comprise means for distributing or facilitating the distribution of the composition. By way of example, the container may have deformable walls so as to allow the composition to exit in response to a positive pressure inside the container, this positive pressure being caused by elastic (or non-elastic) squeezing of the walls of the container. Alternatively, especially when the product is in the form of a stick, the product may be driven out by a piston mechanism. Still in the case of a stick, especially of makeup product (lipstick, foundation, etc.), the container may comprise a mechanism, especially a rack mechanism, a threaded-rod mechanism or a helical groove mechanism, and may be capable of moving a stick in the direction of the said aperture. Such a mechanism is described, for example, in patent FR 2 806 273 or in patent FR 2 775 566. Such a mechanism for a liquid product is described in patent FR 2 727 609.

The container may consist of a carton with a base delimiting at least one housing containing the composition, and a lid, especially articulated on the base, and capable of at least partially covering the said base. Such a carton is described, for example, in patent application WO 03/018423 or in patent FR 2 791 042.

The container may be equipped with a drainer arranged in the region of the aperture of the container. Such a drainer makes it possible to wipe the applicator and possibly the rod to which it may be securely fastened. Such a drainer is described, for example, in patent FR 2 792 618.

The composition may be at atmospheric pressure inside the container (at room temperature).

The content of the patents or patent applications mentioned above are incorporated by reference into the present patent application.
