4 Claims, N0 Drawings 1 COSMETICS CONTAINING SATURATED, BRANCHED SYNTHETIC HIGHER IIYDROCARBON The present invention relates to cosmetics, more par ticularly, relates to cosmetics containing as a cosmetic base, a synthetic higher hydrocarbon having excellent physiological properties.

Broadly speaking, the conventional cosmetic contain a cosmetic base consisting of saturated higher hydrocarbons selected from higher mineral hydrocarbons, for example, liquid paraffins, higher animal hydrocarbons, for example, squalane which is prepared by completely hydrogenating squalene obtained from fish liver oil, and higher vegetable hydrocarbons, for instance, completely hydrogenated terpenes and polymerized terpenes.

The liquid mineral paraffins consist of a mixture of multiple component hydrocarbons, varying in molecular weight and chemical structure. Sometimes, some of the component hydrocarbons stimulate human skin and are easily decomposed by the action of microorganisms. Accordingly, the liquid paraffins guarantee little in cosmetic quality, that is, they neither ensure non-irritation to human skin nor stability during prolonged storage.

The vegetable hydrocarbons also include a plurality of component hydrocarbons varying in number of carbon atoms and chemical structure. Therefore, the vegetable hydrocarbons sometimes include undesirable component hydrocarbons having considerable stimulating effect on human skin and low resistance to miere-organisms.

It is known that squalane is a simple higher animal hydrocarbon of 30 carbon atoms and does not stimulate human skin and has an excellent stability in storage. However, since the squalane is prepared from squalene include in fish liver oil which is not always readily available, the supply of squalane is limited and variable in quantity.

Due to the above-stated circumstances, it is strongly desired by the cosmetic industry that uniform qualityhigher hydrocarbons usable as the cosmetic base, producing non-irritation of human skin and having high stability in relation to biological activity can always be obtained in a desired quantity without difficulty. For

this purpose, it is desirable to obtain simple synthetic higher hydrocarbons having similar cosmetic properties to those of squalane.

One object of the present invention is to provide cosmetics comprising, as a cosmetic base, a synthetic higher hydrocarbon having a non-stimulative property, a high stability to the action of micro-organisms, and other physiological properties.

The other object of the present invention is to provide cosmetics, for example, skin, hair, make-up, bath and toilet cosmetics, comprising a cosmetic base effective for protecting the human body from the action of micro-organisms, with sufficient safety.

The above-stated objects are accomplished by the cosmetics of the present invention. The cosmetics of the present invention comprise a base consisting of at least one saturated, branched synthetic higher hydrocarbon having 26 to 48 carbon atoms, of the formula:

H it

CHCH CH CH wherein R,, R R and R represent an alkyl radical of 2 to 15 carbon atoms, but R, differs from R, and R, differs from R and other cosmetic additives.

The synthetic higher hydrocarbons usable for the present invention are ideal for the cosmetic base.

That is, the synthetic higher hydrocarbons of the present invention can eliminate the above-mentioned drawbacks of the conventional cosmetic base, and be stored for a prolonged period without deterioration. Also, the synthetic higher hydrocarbons of the present invention are greatly effective for protecting human skin from chemical and physical stimulation, preventing the penetration of micro-organisms into the human body, and maintaining human skin in a normal physiological condition even if circumstance changes.

Table 1 indicates physical properties of the typical synthetic higher hydrocarbons usable for the present invention. Further, Table 1 shows the physical properties of the synthetic hydrocarbons of less than 26 carbon atoms and squalane. namely, 2,6,10,15,19,23- hexamethyl-tetracosane.

Preparation of the Synthetic Higher Hydrocarbon Usable for the Present Invention The synthetic higher hydrocarbons usable for the present invention include 26 to 48 carbon atoms. The hydrocarbons of less than 26 carbon atoms are not to be considered for the cosmetic base because of too low viscosity and excessive stimulation to human skin. Also, the hydrocarbons having more than 48 carbon atoms are unsuitable for use as cosmetic base because of excessive viscosity and poor spreadability.

The synthetic higher hydrocarbons usable for the present invention may be prepared by the conventional methods for synthesizing alkane compounds. For example, the synthetic higher hydrocarbons may be prepared in accordance with the Wurtz reaction or Frankland reaction. That is, two saturated branched hydrocarbon halides of the formula:

CHCH CH CH l. Stimulation of Animal Skin by One Application For each of the six kinds of synthetic higher hydrocarbons as shdwn in Table 2, eight albino rabbits were used. They were divided into two groups of four and their hair was cut at the portion to be tested. The rabbits in one of the groups had their skin scraped from the test portions. However, the skin of remaining rabbits was kept intact. All the rabbits were secured by immobilizing equipment. The six kinds of synthetic higher hydrocarbons'shown in Table 2 were applied, in an amount of 0.5 ml. onto a 2.5 cm square piece of lint fabric. The lint pieces bearing the synthetic higher hydrocarbons were put on the test portions of the rabbits so as to bring the applied synthetic higher hydrocarbon layer into contact with the skin. The lint pieces were covered by 3.5 cm square gauzes secured onto the test portions by adhesive tapes and further completely covered by rubber dams. The rabbits were maintained for 72 hours under the above-mentioned test conditions. After 24 hours the lint pieces on the rabbits were removed and the test portions were observed for red spots (erythemata) and dropsical swellings (edemata). The erythemata and edemata thus observed were valued in accordance with the predetermined evaluation standards as detailed hereinafter. Thereafter, the lint pieces were re-applied for the remaining 48 hours. After the testing was completed, the same evaluation as stated above was repeated.

those averaged values for the erythema and edema were again averaged. The averaged values were estimated as follows.

Estimation of the averaged values The results are shown in Table 2.

2. Irritation of Animal Skin by Three Applications For each of the synthetic higher hydrocarbons, three guinea-pigs were used. Their hair was cut at the portion to be tested. The synthetic higher hydrocarbon was applied in an amount of 0.3 ml onto the test portion. After testing for 24 hours, the same application of the synthetic higher hydrocarbon as stated above was repeated twice onto the test portion.

After the test was completed the test portions of the guinea pigs were observed for erythemata and edemata formations. The observed erythema and edema were valued in accordance with the same evaluation standards as those stated hereinbefore. The results are shown in Table 2.

For comparison, the same test as those stated above were repeated using the liquid paraffin, squalane, 5,8- diethyl dodecane and 5-ethyl-8-hexyl hexadecane. The results are shown in Table 2.

Table 2 clearly shows that the synthetic higher hydrocarbons of the present invention had practically no stimulation of animal skin. This is the same as that of squalane. However, the fluid paraft'me and the comparative hydrocarbons having less than 26 carbon atoms had high stimulation of animal skins.

Since it was observed that the synthetic higher hydrocarbons of the present invention are harmless to animal skin, the harmlessness to human skin of the synthetic higher hydrocarbons usable for the present invention, was confirmed by the testing detailed below.

3. Irritation of Human Skin One hundred girls were subjected for testing the synthetic higher hydrocarbons of the present invention as shown in Table 2 and sequalane. The higher hydrocarbons were applied in an amount of 0.05 ml onto lint pieces. The lint pieces were put on the subjects fore arms or the inner aspects of their elbows covered by special adhesive tapes and secured by bandages. The test were continued for 48 hours. Observations were made after 24 hours and 48 hours, for erythemata, edemata, papules and blisters. With respect to all the tested hydrocarbons, no change was observed on any of the test portions of the subjects. The synthetic higher hydrocarbons of the present invention as shown in Table 2 were further subjected to tests which might indicate stimulation of the mucous membranes of the eyes involving the cornea, iris and conjunctive which were observed at predetermined intervals of time. Also tests were carried out to observe effect on human skin and effects of acute toxicity resulting from ingestion of doses of 25 ml/kg body weight. All the results of the tests were negative. That is, the excellent safety of the synthetic higher hydrocarbons of the present invention was confirmed.

4. Stability Against Bacterial Decomposition Five hydrocarbon compounds as shown in Table 3 were subjected to a test for stability against bacterial decomposition.

Two kinds of bacteria, Pseudomonas aeryuginosa and Pseudomonas Strain No. 23 (non-identified) were cultured in the culture media under the conditions detailed below.
