Description:
DYE COMPOSITION BASED ON COPOLYMERS DERIVED FROM THE POLYMERIZATION OF AT LEAST ONE CROTONIC ACID MONOMER OR CROTONIC ACID DERIVATIVE AND ON SILICONE

The subject of the present invention is a composition for dyeing keratin fibers, comprising at least one copolymer derived from the polymerization of at least one monomer of crotonic acid or crotonic acid derivative and of at least one vinyl ester monomer, at least one specific oil-in- water emulsion comprising silicones and at least one pigment, and also a dyeing process using said composition.

In the field of dyeing keratin fibers, in particular human keratin fibers, it is already known practice to dye keratin fibers via various techniques using direct dyes or pigments for non-permanent dyeing, or dye precursors for permanent dyeing.

There are essentially three types of process for dyeing the hair: a) "permanent" dyeing, the function of which is to afford a substantial modification to the natural color and which uses oxidation dyes which penetrate into the hair fiber and forms the dye via an oxidative condensation process; b) non-permanent, semi-permanent or direct dyeing, which does not use the oxidative condensation process and withstands four or five shampoo washes; it consists in dyeing keratin fibers with dye compositions containing direct dyes. These dyes are colored and coloring molecules that have affinity for keratin fibers, c) temporary dyeing, which gives rise to a modification of the natural color of the hair that remains from one shampoo washing to the next, and which serves to enhance or correct a shade that has already been obtained. It may also be likened to a "makeup" process.

For this last type of dyeing, it is known practice to use colored polymers formed by grafting one or more dyes of azo, triphenylmethane, azine, indoamine or anthraquinone nature onto a polymer chain. These colored polymers are not entirely satisfactory, especially as regards the homogeneity of the coloring obtained and its resistance, not to mention the problems associated with their manufacture and especially with their reproducibility. Another dyeing method consists in using pigments. Specifically, the use of pigment on the surface of keratin fibers generally makes it possible to obtain visible colorings on dark hair, since the surface pigment masks the natural color of the fiber. The use of pigment for dyeing keratin fibers is described, for example, in patent application FR 2 741 530; when they are applied to keratin fibers, these compositions have the drawback of transferring, i.e. of becoming at least partly deposited, leaving marks, on certain supports with which they may be placed in contact and in particular clothing or the skin. This results in mediocre persistence of the applied film, making it necessary to regularly repeat the application of the composition. Moreover, the appearance of these unacceptable marks may put certain people off using this type of dyeing. Compositions for temporarily dyeing and/or making up the hair may also lead to a hair feel that is uncosmetic and/or not natural; the hair thus dyed may in particular lack softness and/or suppleness and/or individualization.

There is thus still a need to obtain compositions for the temporary dyeing of keratin materials, especially the hair, which have the advantage of forming a transfer-resistant deposit, which in particular does not become deposited, at least partly, onto supports with which said compositions are placed in contact, such as the skin (in particular the hands and the face) and/or clothing.

The invention is directed toward providing compositions which do not degrade keratin fibers, which do not impair their cosmetic properties such as softness and suppleness, keep the hair strands clearly individualized with no coarse feel, while at the same time having transfer- resistance properties.

This objective is achieved with the present invention, one subject of which is a composition for dyeing keratin fibers, especially human keratin fibers such as the hair, comprising: a) at least one copolymer derived from the polymerization of at least one monomer of crotonic acid or crotonic acid derivative and of at least one vinyl ester monomer, b) at least one oil-in-water emulsion having a particle size D50 of less than 350 nm and which comprises: - a silicone mixture comprising (i) at least one polydialkylsiloxane comprising trialkylsilyl end groups, having a viscosity at 25°C ranging from 40 000 to 100 000 mPa.s and (ii) at least one aminosilicone having a viscosity at 25°C ranging from 1000 to 15 000 mPa.s and an amine number ranging from 2 to 10 mg of KOH per gram of aminosilicone;

- a surfactant mixture comprising one or more nonionic surfactants, said mixture having an HLB ranging from 10 to 16, and

- water and c) at least one pigment. A subject of the invention is also a process for dyeing keratin fibers, especially human keratin fibers such as the hair, comprising the application to said fibers of a composition as defined above.

The term "at least one" means "one or more".

The term "comprising a" means "comprising at least one", unless otherwise specified.

The composition according to the invention is preferably a cosmetic composition, preferably for dyeing keratin fibers, in particular human keratin fibers such as the hair.

It has been observed that by using the dye composition according to the invention, it is possible to improve the individualization of the hair strands, and also to reduce the transfer. The fibers also have a smoother feel, are softer and more supple, and disentangle more easily.

- a step of adding a surfactant mixture comprising one or more nonionic surfactants, said mixture having an HLB ranging from 10 to 16, to said fluid mixture of silicones, in order to obtain an emulsified silicone mixture; then

- a step of homogenizing said emulsified silicone mixture, followed by

- a step of adding water, in particular demineralized water, preferentially in steps, in order to obtain an oil- in- water emulsion having a particle size D50 of less than 350 nm.

The preparation process may also comprise an additional step of adding one or more preservatives.

The pH of the oil- in- water emulsion is generally between 4 and 6.

The oil-in-water emulsion has a particle size D50 of less than 350 nm, in particular of between 100 and 300 nm, better still between 150 and 250 nm, or even between 160 and 200 nm.

This size corresponds to the average hydrodynamic particle diameter. The particle size D50 is expressed by volume. It can be measured using a ZetaSizer device from Malvern, UK, model Nano-ZS, based on the "Photon Correlation Spectroscopy (PCS)" method.

Method for measuring the particle size

The particle size of the emulsion is measured using a ZetaSizer device from Malvern, UK, model Nano-ZS, based on the "Photon Correlation Spectroscopy (PCS)" method.

The particle size D50 is measured when the evaluation algorithm is "cumulant analysis".

0.5 g of the emulsion is placed in a 250 ml beaker, 100 ml of demineralized water are added and mixing is carried out in order to obtain the solution to be tested. The solution to be tested is placed in the measuring vessel (or cell) and introduced into the measuring device. The size D50 corresponds to the particle diameter value at 50% in cumulative distribution.

For example, if D 5 o=170 nm, this means that 50% of the particles have a size of greater than 170 nm, and that 50% of the particles have a size of less than 170 nm.

It should be recalled that this distribution is by volume.

Method for measuring the viscosity The viscosities, in particular of the silicone compounds, are measured at 25°C, 1 atm.

To measure viscosities of between 1000 and 40 000 mPa.s at 25°C, use may be made of an Anton Paar rheometer, model MCR101, cylinder geometry, single gap: CC27 spindle, shear rate 1 s "1 for 2 minutes, at 25°C. To measure viscosities of between 40 000 and 100 000 mPa.s at 25°C, use may be made of an Anton Paar rheometer, model MCR101, 25-6 cone (cone-plate geometry, 25 mm in diameter / 6° cone); Zero gap, shear rate 1 s "1 for 2 minutes, at 25°C.

Three measurements are carried out for each sample, and the viscosity value is taken at 60 seconds. The MCR Rheometer Series products operate according to the USP convention (US Pharmacopeia Convention, 912 - Rotational Rheometer methods).

Method for measuring the amine number

The amine number can be measured by acid-base titration, using a potentiometer [Make: Veego; model VPT-MG]. 0.6 g of the sample is placed in a 500 ml beaker and a 1 : 1 toluene-butanol mixture is added, then mixing is carried out.

The solution is titrated with a 0.1 N HC1 solution. A determination of the zero value (Vbiank) is also carried out with the 1 : 1 toluene-butanol mixture alone.

The amine number is calculated by means of the formula: 56.11 (V - V Blank) x N / W mg KOH/ g of sample with V= volume of HC1 required (in ml), volume of HC1 required for the zero value (in ml); N= normality of HC1, i.e. 0.1 , and W= weight of the sample (in g).

HLB values The term HLB relates to the hydrophilic- lipophilic balance of a surfactant. It can be measured experimentally or calculated. In the present application, the HLB values are the values at 25°C.

The HLB values can be calculated by means of the following equation: HLB = (E + P)/5, in which E is the % by weight of oxyethylene and P is the % by weight of polyol, as is described in the publication Griffin, J. Soc. Cosm. Chem. 1954 (vol.5, No. 4), pages 249-256.

The HLB values can also be determined experimentally according to the book by Puisieux and Seiller, entitled "Galenica 5: Les systemes disperses [Galenics 5: Dispersed systems] - Volume I - Agents de surface et emulsions [Surface agents and emulsions] - Chapter IV - Notions de HLB et de HLB critique [Notions of HLB and of critical HLB], pages 153-194 - paragraph 1.1.2. Determination de HLB par voie experimental [Experimental determination of HLB], pages 164-180".

Preferably, the HLB values that will be taken into account are those obtained by calculation, in particular in the following way: "calculated HLB" = 20 x (molar mass of the hydrophilic part/total molar mass). Thus, for an oxyethylenated fatty alcohol, the hydrophilic part corresponds to the oxyethylene units fused to the fatty alcohol and the "calculated HLB" then corresponds to the "HLB according to Griffin".

For an ester or an amide, the hydrophilic part is generally defined as being beyond the carbonyl group, starting from the fatty chain(s).

The HLB values of nonionic surfactants can also be calculated by means of the Davies formula, as described in Davies JT (1957), "A quantitative kinetic theory of emulsion type, I. Physical chemistry of the emulsifying agent", Gas/Liquid and Liquid/Liquid Interface (Proceedings of the International Congress of Surface Activity): 426-438. According to this formula, the HLB value is obtained by adding the hydrophilic/hydrophobic contribution linked to the constituent groups in the surfactant:

HLB = (number of hydrophilic groups) - n(number of groups per CH 2 group) +7. The HLB values of some cationic surfactants are given in Table IV, in "Cationic emulsifiers in cosmetics", GODFREY, J. Soc. Cosmetic Chemists (1966) 17, pages 17-27.

When two surfactants A and B, of known HLB values, are mixed, the HLBMIX corresponds to the HLB of the mixture and can be expressed by the following equation:

HLBMIX = (WAHLBA + WBHLBB)/ (WA + W B ) in which WA is the amount (weight) of the 1 st surfactant A and WB the amount of the 2 nd surfactant B, and HLBA and HLBB are the HLB values of the surfactant A and of the surfactant B.

The pigments in accordance with the invention may also be in the form of composite pigments, as described in patent EP 1 184 426. These composite pigments may be composed especially of particles comprising a mineral core, at least one binder, which provides for the attachment of the organic pigments to the core, and at least one organic pigment which at least partially covers the core.

The organic pigment may also be a lake. The term "lake" means dyes adsorbed onto insoluble particles, the assembly thus obtained remaining insoluble during use. The mineral substrates onto which the dyes are adsorbed are, for example, alumina, silica, calcium sodium borosilicate or calcium aluminum borosilicate and aluminum.

Among the dyes, mention may be made of carminic acid. Mention may also be made of the dyes known under the following names: D&C Red 21 (CI 45 380), D&C Orange 5 (CI 45 370), D&C Red 27 (CI 45 410), D&C Orange 10 (CI 45 425), D&C Red 3 (CI 45 430), D&C Red 4 (CI 15 510), D&C Red 33 (CI 17 200), D&C Yellow 5 (CI 19 140), D&C Yellow 6 (CI 15 985), D&C Green (CI 61 570), D&C Yellow 1 O (CI 77 002), D&C Green 3 (CI 42 053), D&C Blue 1 (CI 42 090).

Mention may be made, as examples of lakes, of the product known under the following name: D&C Red 7 (CI 15 850: 1). The pigment may also be a pigment with special effects. The term "pigments with special effects" means pigments that generally create a colored appearance (characterized by a certain shade, a certain vivacity and a certain level of luminance) that is non-uniform and that changes as a function of the conditions of observation (light, temperature, angles of observation, etc.). They thus contrast with colored pigments that afford a standard uniform opaque, semi- transparent or transparent shade.

Several types of pigment with special effects exist: those with a low refractive index, such as fluorescent or photochromic pigments, and those with a higher refractive index, such as nacres, interference pigments or glitter flakes. Examples of pigments with special effects that may be mentioned include nacreous pigments such as mica coated with titanium or with bismuth oxychloride, colored nacreous pigments such as mica coated with titanium and iron oxides, mica coated with iron oxide, mica coated with titanium and especially with ferric blue or with chromium oxide, mica coated with titanium and with an organic pigment of the abovementioned type, and also nacreous pigments based on bismuth oxychloride. Nacreous pigments that may be mentioned include the Cellini nacres sold by Engelhard (mica-Ti02-lake), Prestige sold by Eckart (mica-Ti02), Prestige Bronze sold by Eckart (mica-Fe203), and Colorona sold by Merck (mica-Ti02-Fe203).

Mention may also be made of the gold-colored nacres sold especially by the company Engelhard under the name Brilliant gold 212G (Timica), Gold 222C (Cloisonne), Sparkle gold (Timica), Gold 4504 (Chromalite) and Monarch gold 233X (Cloisonne); the bronze nacres sold especially by the company Merck under the name Bronze fine (17384) (Colorona) and Bronze (17353) (Colorona) and by the company Engelhard under the name Super bronze (Cloisonne); the orange nacres sold especially by the company Engelhard under the name Orange 363C (Cloisonne) and Orange MCR 101 (Cosmica) and by the company Merck under the name Passion orange (Colorona) and Matte orange (17449) (Microna); the brown nacres sold especially by the company Engelhard under the name Nu-antique copper 340XB (Cloisonne) and Brown CL4509 (Chromalite); the nacres with a coppery glint sold especially by the company Engelhard under the name Copper 340A (Timica); the nacres with a red glint sold especially by the company Merck under the name Sienna fine (17386) (Colorona); the nacres with a yellow glint sold especially by the company Engelhard under the name Yellow (4502) (Chromalite); the red nacres with a gold glint sold especially by the company Engelhard under the name Sunstone GO 12 (Gemtone); the pink nacres sold especially by the company Engelhard under the name Tan opale G005 (Gemtone); the black nacres with a gold glint sold especially by the company Engelhard under the name Nu antique bronze 240 AB (Timica), the blue nacres sold especially by the company Merck under the name Matte blue (17433) (Microna), the white nacres with a silvery glint sold especially by the company Merck under the name Xirona Silver, and the golden-green pink-orange nacres sold especially by the company Merck under the name Indian summer (Xirona), and mixtures thereof. Still as examples of nacres, mention may also be made of particles comprising a borosilicate substrate coated with titanium oxide. Particles comprising a glass substrate coated with titanium oxide are sold in particular under the name Metashine MC1080RY by the company Toyal.

Finally, examples of nacres that may also be mentioned include polyethylene terephthalate flakes, especially those sold by the company Meadowbrook Inventions under the name Silver IP 0.004X0.004 (silver flakes).

It is also possible to envisage multilayer pigments based on synthetic substrates, such as alumina, silica, calcium sodium borosilicate, calcium aluminum borosilicate and aluminum.

The pigments with special effects may also be chosen from reflective particles, i.e. especially from particles of which the size, structure, especially the thickness of the layer(s) of which they are made and their physical and chemical nature, and surface state, allow them to reflect incident light. This reflection may, if appropriate, have an intensity sufficient to create, at the surface of the composition or mixture, when the latter is applied to the substrate to be made up, highlight points visible to the naked eye, that is to say more luminous points which contrast with their surroundings by appearing to sparkle. The reflective particles may be selected so as not to significantly alter the coloring effect generated by the coloring agents with which they are combined, and more particularly so as to optimize this effect in terms of color rendition. They may more particularly have a yellow, pink, red, bronze, orange, brown, gold and/or coppery color or glint.

These particles may have varied forms and may especially be in platelet or globular form, in particular in spherical form.

Irrespective of their form, the reflective particles may or may not have a multilayer structure, and, in the case of a multilayer structure, may have, for example, at least one layer of uniform thickness, especially of a reflective material.

When the reflective particles do not have a multilayer structure, they may be composed, for example, of metal oxides, especially titanium or iron oxides obtained synthetically.

When the reflective particles have a multilayer structure, they may comprise, for example, a natural or synthetic substrate, especially a synthetic substrate at least partially coated with at least one layer of a reflective material, especially of at least one metal or metallic material. The substrate may be made of one or more organic and/or mineral materials. More particularly, it may be chosen from glasses, ceramics, graphite, metal oxides, aluminas, silicas, silicates, especially aluminosilicates and borosilicates, and synthetic mica, and mixtures thereof, this list not being limiting.

The reflective material may comprise a layer of metal or of a metallic material. Reflective particles are described in particular in the documents

JP-A-09188830, JP-A-10158450, JP-A-10158541, JP-A-07258460 and JP-A-05017710.

Mention may also be made, still by way of example of reflective particles comprising a mineral substrate coated with a layer of metal, of the particles comprising a borosilicate substrate coated with silver. Particles comprising a glass substrate coated with silver, in the form of platelets, are sold under the name Microglass Metashine REFSX 2025 PS by Toyal. Particles with a glass substrate coated with nickel/chromium/molybdenum alloy are sold under the name Crystal Star GF 550 and GF 2525 by this same company.

Use may also be made of particles comprising a metal substrate, such as silver, aluminum, iron, chromium, nickel, molybdenum, gold, copper, zinc, tin, magnesium, steel, bronze or titanium, said substrate being coated with at least one layer of at least one metal oxide, such as titanium oxide, aluminum oxide, iron oxide, cerium oxide, chromium oxide, silicon oxides and mixtures thereof.

Examples that may be mentioned include aluminum powder, bronze powder or copper powder coated with Si02 sold under the name Visionaire by the company Eckart.

Mention may also be made of pigments with an interference effect which are not attached to a substrate, such as liquid crystals (Helicones HC from Wacker) or interference holographic glitter flakes (Geometric Pigments or Spectra f/x from Spectratek). Pigments with special effects also comprise fluorescent pigments, whether these are substances that are fluorescent in daylight or that produce an ultraviolet fluorescence, phosphorescent pigments, photochromic pigments, thermochromic pigments and quantum dots, sold, for example, by the company Quantum Dots Corporation. Quantum dots are luminescent semiconductive nanoparticles capable of emitting, under light excitation, irradiation with a wavelength of between 400 nm and 700 nm. These nanoparticles are known from the literature. In particular, they may be synthesized according to the processes described, for example, in US 6 225 198 or US 5 990 479, in the publications cited therein and also in the following publications: Dabboussi B.O. et al, "(CdSe)ZnS core-shell quantum dots: synthesis and characterization of a size series of highly luminescent nanocrystallites", Journal of Physical Chemistry B, vol. 101, 1997, pp. 9463-9475, and Peng, Xiaogang et al, "Epitaxial growth of highly luminescent CdSe/CdS core/shell nanocrystals with photostability and electronic accessibility", Journal of the American Chemical Society, vol. 119, No. 30, pages 7019-7029.

The variety of pigments that may be used in the present invention makes it possible to obtain a wide range of colors, and also particular optical effects such as metallic effects or interference effects.

The size of the pigment used in the cosmetic composition according to the present invention is generally between 10 nm and 200 μιη, preferably between 20 nm and 80 μιη and more preferably between 30 nm and 50 μιη.

The pigments may be dispersed in the product by means of a dispersant.

The dispersant serves to protect the dispersed particles against their agglomeration or flocculation. This dispersant may be a surfactant, an oligomer, a polymer or a mixture of several thereof, bearing one or more functionalities with strong affinity for the surface of the particles to be dispersed. In particular, they may become physically or chemically attached to the surface of the pigments. These dispersants also contain at least one functional group that is compatible with or soluble in the continuous medium. In particular, 12-hydroxystearic acid esters and Cs to C20 fatty acid esters of polyols such as glycerol or diglycerol are used, such as poly(12- hydroxystearic) acid stearate with a molecular weight of about 750 g/mol, such as the product sold under the name Solsperse 21 000 by the company Avecia, polyglyceryl-2 dipolyhydroxystearate (CTFA name) sold under the reference Dehymyls PGPH by the company Henkel, or polyhydroxystearic acid such as the product sold under the reference Arlacel PI 00 by the company Uniqema, and mixtures thereof. As other dispersants that may be used in the compositions of the invention, mention may be made of quaternary ammonium derivatives of polycondensed fatty acids, for instance Solsperse 17 000 sold by the company Avecia, and polydimethylsiloxane/oxypropylene mixtures such as those sold by the company Dow Corning under the references DC2-5185 and DC2-5225 C. The pigments used in the cosmetic composition according to the invention may be surface- treated with an organic agent.

Thus, the pigments that have been surface-treated beforehand, which are useful in the context of the invention, are pigments that have totally or partially undergone a surface treatment of chemical, electronic, electrochemical, mechanochemical or mechanical nature, with an organic agent such as those described especially in Cosmetics and Toiletries, February 1990, Vol. 105, pages 53-64, before being dispersed in the composition in accordance with the invention. These organic agents may be chosen, for example, from waxes, for example carnauba wax and beeswax; fatty acids, fatty alcohols and derivatives thereof, such as stearic acid, hydroxystearic acid, stearyl alcohol, hydroxystearyl alcohol and lauric acid and derivatives thereof; anionic surfactants; lecithins; sodium, potassium, magnesium, iron, titanium, zinc or aluminum salts of fatty acids, for example aluminum stearate or laurate; metal alkoxides; polyethylene; (meth)acrylic polymers, for example polymethyl methacrylates; polymers and copolymers containing acrylate units; alkanolamines; silicone compounds, for example silicones, polydimethylsiloxanes; organofluorine compounds, for example perfluoroalkyl ethers; fluorosilicone compounds.

The surface-treated pigments that are useful in the cosmetic composition according to the invention may also have been treated with a mixture of these compounds and/or may have undergone several surface treatments.

The surface-treated pigments that are useful in the context of the present invention may be prepared according to surface-treatment techniques that are well known to those skilled in the art, or may be commercially available in the required form.

Preferably, the surface-treated pigments are coated with an organic layer.

The organic agent with which the pigments are treated may be deposited on the pigments by evaporation of solvent, chemical reaction between the molecules of the surface agent or creation of a covalent bond between the surface agent and the pigments. The surface treatment may thus be performed, for example, by chemical reaction of a surface agent with the surface of the pigments and creation of a covalent bond between the surface agent and the pigments or the fillers. This method is especially described in patent US 4 578 266. An organic agent covalently bonded to the pigments will preferably be used.

The agent for the surface treatment may represent from 0.1% to 50% by weight, preferably from 0.5% to 30% by weight and even more preferentially from 1% to 10% by weight relative to the total weight of the surface-treated pigment.

Preferably, the surface treatments of the pigments are chosen from the following treatments: - a PEG-silicone treatment, for instance the AQ surface treatment sold by LCW;

- a methicone treatment, for instance the SI surface treatment sold by LCW;

- a dimethicone treatment, for instance the Covasil 3.05 surface treatment sold by LCW;

- a dimethicone/trimethyl siloxysilicate treatment, for instance the Covasil 4.05 surface treatment sold by LCW; - a magnesium myristate treatment, for instance the MM surface treatment sold by LCW;

- an acrylate/dimethicone copolymer and perfluoroalkyl phosphate treatment, for instance the FSA surface treatment sold by Daito;

- a polymethylhydrogenosiloxane/perfluoroalkyl phosphate treatment, for instance the FS01 surface treatment sold by Daito; - an acrylate/dimethicone copolymer treatment, for instance the ASC surface treatment sold by Daito;

- an isopropyl titanium triisostearate treatment, for instance the ITT surface treatment sold by Daito; - an acrylate copolymer treatment, for instance the APD surface treatment sold by Daito;

- a perfluoroalkyl phosphate/isopropyl titanium triisostearate treatment, for instance the PF + ITT surface treatment sold by Daito.

Preferably, the pigment is chosen from mineral or mixed mineral-organic pigments.

The amount of pigment(s) may range from 0.01% to 30% by weight, more particularly from 0.05% to 20% by weight, preferably from 0.1% to 15% by weight and preferably from 1% to 10% by weight relative to the total weight of the composition.

The above additives are generally present in an amount for each of them of between 0.01% and 20% by weight relative to the weight of the composition.

Needless to say, those skilled in the art will take care to choose this or these optional additive(s) so that the advantageous properties intrinsically attached to the formation of the sheathing in accordance with the invention are not, or not substantially, detrimentally affected.

The application to the fibers may be performed via any standard means, in particular using a comb, a fine brush, a coarse brush or with the fingers.

Preferably, if the fibers are dried, they are dried, in addition to a supply of heat, with a flow of air. During drying, a mechanical action may be exerted on the locks, such as combing, brushing or running the fingers through. This operation may similarly be performed once the fibers have been dried, naturally or otherwise.
