Description:
DESCRIPTION

TITLE: Cosmetic composition comprising at least one hydrophobic filmforming polymer and at least one aminosilicone

The present invention relates to a cosmetic composition comprising a combination of at least one hydrophobic film-forming polymer and of at least one aminosilicone in an organic solvent.

The present invention also relates to a cosmetic process for treating keratin fibres, in particular human keratin fibres such as the hair, using said cosmetic composition.

Finally, the present invention relates to the use of said cosmetic composition for conditioning keratin fibres, in particular human keratin fibres such as the hair.

Hair is generally damaged and embrittled by the action of external atmospheric agents such as light and bad weather, and by mechanical or chemical treatments, such as brushing, combing, dyeing, bleaching, permanent-waving and/or relaxing.

Thus, in order to remedy these drawbacks, it is now common practice to pursue haircare treatments involving the use of care compositions that make it possible to condition the hair after these treatments in order notably to give it sheen, softness, suppleness, lightness, a natural feel and disentangling properties.

These haircare compositions may advantageously be compositions to be applied after shampooing and may be in the form of gels, hair lotions or more or less thick creams.

To improve the cosmetic properties of these compositions, it is known practice to introduce therein cosmetic agents, known as conditioning agents, intended mainly to repair or to limit the harmful or undesirable effects brought about by the various treatments or attacking factors to which hair fibres are more or less repeatedly subjected. These conditioning agents may, of course, also improve the cosmetic behaviour of natural hair.

With this aim, it has already been proposed to use cosmetically active organic compounds, such as cationic polymers and silicones, as conditioning agents in cosmetic care compositions, such as hair conditioners, in order to give the hair satisfactory cosmetic properties, in particular softness, suppleness, lightness, a natural feel and an improved ability to be disentangled. However, the use of these compounds in care and/or conditioning cosmetic compositions does not afford the hair entirely satisfactory and lasting cosmetic properties. This is because these compositions generally provide cosmetic properties, such as the disentangling of wet and dry hair, suppleness, smoothness, sheen, coating and an individualized nature of the hair strands, which remain insufficient and which have a tendency to fade out after washing the hair with a standard shampoo.

Conventional haircare compositions also have a tendency to weigh down the hair and to cover it with a brittle, squeaky or crackly film. After application, these compositions may leave a greasy and coarse feel, which consumers find unpleasant.

In addition, these care compositions are not entirely satisfactory in terms of providing sheen to the head of hair.

Moreover, these care compositions change substantially over time under normal storage conditions. This is reflected by an unsatisfactory texture of the compositions.

Thus, there is a real need to provide a cosmetic composition for treating keratin fibres, in particular human keratin fibres such as the hair, which does not have the drawbacks mentioned above, i.e. which is notably capable of affording good conditioning properties, notably in terms of sheen, while at the same time giving the keratin fibres a sensation of lightness and softness (or a glidant appearance). These properties must not only be satisfactory from the very first application, but also lasting between two shampoo washes.

The composition must also remain stable over time.

It has been discovered, surprisingly, that a composition comprising a particular combination of at least one hydrophobic film-forming polymer and of at least one aminosilicone in at least one organic solvent makes it possible to achieve the objectives presented above.

One subject of the present application is thus a cosmetic composition comprising:

a) one or more hydrophobic film-forming polymers chosen from indene hydrocarbon-based resins, aliphatic pentanediene resins, mixed resins of pentanediene and of indene, diene resins of cyclopentanediene dimers, diene resins of isoprene dimers and mixtures thereof,

b) one or more aminosilicones, and

c) one or more organic solvents. The combination of a hydrophobic film-forming polymer with an aminosilicone gives keratin fibres good conditioning properties, and notably suppleness, smoothness and sheen, while at the same time giving them a very good, non-greasy and non-laden, natural feel with a glidant coating. Thus, fibres treated with the composition according to the invention are not made heavy and have a light, pleasant sensation.

The composition according to the present invention also makes it possible to restore the natural sheen of damaged or degraded keratin fibres, or even to improve the sheen of keratin fibres that are not damaged or degraded.

In addition, the composition according to the invention can afford these conditioning properties on wet and dry hair, in rinse-out or leave-in application, with or without supplying heat brought notably by means of a hairdryer and/or a straightening iron.

Moreover, the conditioning properties afforded by the composition according to the invention show good resistance to the various attacking factors to which hair may be subjected, such as light, bad weather, washing and perspiration.

A subject of the present invention is also a cosmetic process for treating keratin fibres, in particular human keratin fibres such as the hair, comprising the application to said keratin fibres of an anhydrous cosmetic composition as defined previously.

The present invention also relates to the use of said anhydrous cosmetic composition for conditioning keratin fibres, in particular human keratin fibres such as the hair.

[Figure 1] shows the gloss measurements (expressed in arbitrary units) obtained for locks of hair treated with compositions according to the invention (A1 and A2) and compares them with those obtained for locks of hair treated with comparative compositions (B 1 and B2). The gloss measurements on locks of natural and "degraded" chestnut-brown hair are also shown in this figure.

Other subjects, characteristics, aspects and advantages of the invention will emerge even more clearly on reading the description and the examples that follow.

In the text hereinbelow, unless otherwise indicated, the limits of a range of values are included in that range, notably in the expressions "between" and "ranging from ... to ...". Moreover, the expression "at least one" used in the present description is equivalent to the expression "one or more".

Hydrophobic film-forming polymers

The composition according to the present invention comprises (a) one or more hydrophobic film-forming polymers chosen from indene hydrocarbon-based resins, aliphatic pentanediene resins, mixed resins of pentanediene and of indene, diene resins of cyclopentanediene dimers, diene resins of isoprene dimers and mixtures thereof.

In the present patent application, the term“film-forming polymer” means a polymer that is capable, by itself or in the presence of an auxiliary film-forming agent, of forming a macroscopically continuous deposit, and preferably a cohesive deposit, and even better still a deposit whose cohesion and mechanical properties are such that said deposit can be isolated and manipulated individually, for example when said deposit is prepared by pouring onto a non-stick surface such as a Teflon-coated or silicone-coated surface.

The term "hydrophobic" or "water-insoluble" polymer means that the polymer is not soluble in water, according to the definition below.

The term "water-soluble" polymer means that the polymer dissolves in water or in a 50/50 by volume mixture of water and ethanol, or alternatively in a mixture of water and isopropanol, without modification of the pH, at a solids content of 5% by weight, at room temperature (25°C, 1 atm.). The polymer is considered to be soluble if it does not form a precipitate or agglomerate that is visible to the naked eye when it is placed in solution, and if it therefore gives a clear solution.

The composition comprises one or more hydrocarbon-based resins chosen from indene hydrocarbon-based resins, aliphatic pentanediene resins, mixed resins of pentanediene and of indene, diene resins of cyclopentanediene dimers, diene resins of isoprene dimers and mixtures thereof, as hydrophobic-forming polymers.

For the purposes of the invention, the term "hydrocarbon-based resin" refers to a resin formed solely from carbon and hydrogen atoms.

The hydrocarbon-based resin(s) are advantageously chosen from low molecular weight polymers that may be classified, according to the type of monomer they comprise, as:

- indene hydrocarbon-based resins, preferably such as resins derived from the polymerization in major proportion of indene monomer and in minor proportion of a monomer chosen from styrene, methylindene and methylstyrene, and mixtures thereof. These resins may optionally be hydrogenated. These resins may have a molecular weight ranging from 290 to 1150 g/mol;

These resins generally have a molecular weight ranging from 500 to 800 g/mol, for instance those sold under the reference Betaprene BR 100 by the company Arizona Chemical Co., Neville LX-685-125 and Neville LX-1000 by the company Neville Chem., Piccodiene 2215 by the company Hercules, Petro-Rez 200 by the company Lawter or Resinall 760 by the company Resinall Corp.;

- diene resins of isoprene dimers such as terpenic resins derived from the polymerization of at least one monomer chosen from a-pinene, b-pinene and limonene, and mixtures thereof. These resins may have a molecular weight ranging from 300 to 2000 g/mol. Such resins are sold, for example, under the names Piccolyte A115 and S 125 by the company Hercules or Zonarez 7100 or Zonatac 105 Lite by the company Arizona Chem.

According to a preferred embodiment, the hydrocarbon-based resin is chosen from hydrocarbon-based resins that are solid at room temperature (20°C).

Preferably, the composition comprises at least one hydrocarbon-based resin such as those described previously, and notably chosen from indene hydrocarbon- based resins and aliphatic pentanediene resins, and mixtures thereof. According to a preferred embodiment, the hydrocarbon-based resin is chosen from indene hydrocarbon-based resins.

According to a preferred embodiment, the resin is chosen from hydrogenated indene/methylstyrene/styrene copolymers.

The hydrocarbon-based block copolymer may notably be a diblock, triblock, multiblock, radial or star copolymer, or mixtures thereof.

For the purposes of the invention, the term "hydrocarbon-based polymer" refers to a polymer formed solely from carbon and hydrogen atoms.

Such hydrocarbon-based block copolymers are described in patent application US-A- 2002/005 562 and in patent US-A-5 221 534.

The copolymer may contain at least one block whose glass transition temperature is preferably less than 20°C, preferably less than or equal to 0°C, preferably less than or equal to -20°C and more preferably less than or equal to -40°C. The glass transition temperature of said block may be between -150°C and 20°C and notably between 100°C and 0°C.

The hydrocarbon-based block copolymer present in the composition according to the invention is a copolymer formed by polymerization of an olefin. The olefin may notably be an ethylenically unsaturated monomer.

Examples of olefins that may be mentioned include ethylenic carbide monomers, notably containing one or two ethylenic unsaturations and containing from 2 to 5 carbon atoms, such as ethylene, propylene, butadiene, isoprene or pentadiene.

Advantageously, the hydrocarbon-based block copolymer is a block copolymer of styrene and olefin.

The weight-average molecular masses of these aminosilicones may be measured by gel permeation chromatography (GPC) at room temperature (25°C), as polystyrene equivalent. The columns used are m styragel columns. The eluent is THF and the flow rate is 1 ml/min. 200 mΐ of a 0.5% by weight solution of silicone in THF are injected. Detection is performed by refractometry and UV-metry.

Mention may be made notably of azo pigments which contain one or more azo groups A-N=N-B with A representing an optionally substituted (hetero)aryl, B representing optionally substituted (hetero)aryl or -CH[C(0)-R]-C(0)-Xi-A', A' representing an optionally substituted (hetero)aryl and R representing a hydrogen atom or a (Ci-Ce)alkyl group, with the (hetero)aryl groups A, A' and B not containing any solubilizing groups such as -SChH or -COOH.

They may in particular be monoazo pigments, including b-naphthols, monoazopyrrolone pigments or benzimidazolone pigments; diazo pigments, such as diazodiarylide pigments and bis(N-acetoacetarylide) pigments, or triazo or tetraazo pigments.

When the dyes comprise one or more solubilizing groups such as -SO3H or - COOH, these dyes are made insoluble and consequently pigments by formation of a lake, i.e. by salification (e.g. Na, Ca, St, Ba, etc.) and divided mainly into b-naphthol and 2-hydroxy-3 -naphthoic acid pigments "(BON) pigment lakes".

In the context of the present invention, the pigment may be at least partly organic.

- a mineral core,

- at least one binder for fixing the organic pigments to the core, and

- at least one organic pigment at least partially covering the core.

The term "lake" refers to dyes adsorbed onto insoluble particles, the assembly thus obtained remaining insoluble during use.

The term“pigments with special effects” refers to pigments that generally create a coloured 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 thereby differ from white or coloured pigments that afford a standard uniform opaque, semi transparent or transparent shade.

The dyestuff(s) are advantageously chosen from pigments and mixtures thereof, and preferably from nacres and mixtures thereof.

The total content of dyestuff(s), if present in the composition according to the present invention, preferably ranges from 0.1% to 15% by weight, more preferentially from 0.5% to 10% by weight, and better still from 1% to 5% by weight, relative to the total weight of the composition. The polymer particles

The composition according to the present invention may also optionally comprise particles, which are preferably spherical, of at least one surface-stabilized polymer.

Preferably, the particles are introduced into the composition in the form of a dispersion of particles, which are generally spherical, of at least one surface-stabilized polymer, in an oily medium, advantageously containing at least one hydrocarbon-based oil, as defined previously.

The polymer of the particles is preferably a polymer obtained from monomers chosen from C1-C4 alkyl (meth)acrylates. It may be a homopolymer or a copolymer obtained by polymerization of only one or of several different monomers.

The C1-C4 alkyl (meth)acrylate monomers may be chosen from methyl (meth)acrylate, ethyl (meth)acrylate, n-propyl (meth)acrylate, isopropyl (meth)acrylate, n-butyl (meth)acrylate and tert-butyl (meth)acrylate.

A C1-C4 alkyl acrylate monomer is advantageously used. Preferentially, the polymer of the particles is obtained from methyl acrylate and/or ethyl acrylate.

The polymer of the particles may also comprise an ethylenically unsaturated acid monomer or an anhydride thereof, chosen notably from ethylenically unsaturated acid monomers comprising at least one carboxylic, phosphoric or sulfonic acid function, such as crotonic acid, itaconic acid, fumaric acid, maleic acid, maleic anhydride, styrenesulfonic acid, vinylbenzoic acid, vinylphosphoric acid, acrylic acid, methacrylic acid, acrylamidopropanesulfonic acid or acrylamidoglycolic acid, and salts thereof.

The ethylenically unsaturated acid monomer is preferably chosen from (meth)acrylic acid, maleic acid and maleic anhydride.

The salts may be chosen from salts of alkali metals, for example sodium or potassium; salts of alkaline-earth metals, for example calcium, magnesium or strontium; metal salts, for example zinc, aluminium, manganese or copper; ammonium salts of formula NH4 + ; quaternary ammonium salts; salts of organic amines, for instance salts of methylamine, dimethylamine, trimethylamine, triethylamine, ethylamine, 2-hydroxyethylamine, bis(2-hydroxyethyl)amine or tris(2- hydroxyethyl)amine; lysine or arginine salts. The polymer of the particles may thus comprise or consist essentially of from 80% to 100% by weight of Ci to C4 alkyl (meth)acrylate and from 0 to 20% by weight of ethylenically unsaturated acid monomer, relative to the total weight of the polymer.

According to a first embodiment of the invention, the polymer consists essentially of a polymer obtained from one or more monomers chosen from Ci to C4 alkyl (meth)acrylate(s).

According to a second embodiment of the invention, the polymer consists essentially of a copolymer of Ci to C4 (meth)acrylate(s) and of (meth)acrylic acid or maleic anhydride.

The polymer of the particles may be chosen from:

- methyl acrylate/maleic anhydride copolymers, and

- ethyl acrylate/maleic anhydride copolymers.

The polymer of the particles may also be a polymer obtained from monomers chosen from aryl (meth)acrylates, and more particularly benzyl acrylate.

Advantageously, the polymer of the particles is a non-crosslinked polymer.

The polymer of the particles preferably has a number-average molecular weight (Mn) ranging from 2000 to 10 000 000 and preferably ranging from 150 000 to 500 000.

In the case of a particle dispersion, the polymer(s) of the particles may preferably be present in the dispersion in a content ranging from 20% to 60% by weight, more preferentially from 21% to 58.5% by weight, better still from 30% to 50% by weight and even better still from 36% to 42% by weight, relative to the total weight of the dispersion.

The polymer is surface-stabilized, for example using a stabilizer which is preferably a homopolymer or a copolymer obtained notably from isobomyl (meth)acrylate(s), and better still chosen from isobornyl (meth)acrylate homopolymer and statistical copolymers of isobornyl (meth)acrylate and of C1-C4 alkyl (meth)acrylate present in an isobornyl (meth)acrylate/Ci-C4 alkyl (meth)acrylate weight ratio of greater than 4, preferably greater than 4.5 and even more advantageously greater than or equal to 5. Advantageously, said weight ratio ranges from 4.5 to 19, preferably from 5 to 19 and more particularly from 5 to 12.

According to a particular embodiment, the stabilizer is a statistical copolymer of isobornyl (meth)acrylate and of Ci to C4 alkyl (meth)acrylate present in an isobornyl (meth)acrylate/Ci to C4 alkyl (meth)acrylate weight ratio of greater than or equal to 5.

Advantageously, the stabilizer is chosen from:

- isobornyl acrylate homopolymers,

- statistical copolymers of isobornyl acrylate/methyl acrylate,

- statistical copolymers of isobornyl acrylate/methyl acrylate/ethyl acrylate, and

- statistical copolymers of isobornyl methacrylate/methyl acrylate, in the weight ratio described previously.

The stabilizer preferably has a number-average molecular weight (Mn) ranging from 10 000 to 400 000 and preferably ranging from 20 000 to 200 000.

The stabilizer is in contact with the surface of the polymer particles and thus makes it possible to stabilize these particles at the surface, in particular in order to keep these particles in dispersion in the non-aqueous medium of the dispersion.

Advantageously, the combination of the stabilizer(s) + polymer(s) of the particles present in particular in the dispersion comprises in total from 10% to 50% by weight of polymerized isobornyl (meth)acrylate and from 50% to 90% by weight of polymerized Ci to C4 alkyl (meth)acrylate, relative to the total weight of the combination of the stabilizer(s) + polymer(s) of the particles.

Preferentially, the combination of the stabilizer(s) + polymer(s) of the particles present in particular in the dispersion comprises in total from 15% to 30% by weight of polymerized isobornyl (meth)acrylate and from 70% to 85% by weight of polymerized Ci to C4 alkyl (meth)acrylate, relative to the total weight of the combination of the stabilizer(s) + polymer(s) of the particles.

Preferably, the stabilizer(s) are soluble in the hydrocarbon-based oils as defined previously, and in particular soluble in isododecane.

When the polymer particles are provided in the composition in the form of a dispersion prepared beforehand, the oily medium of this polymer dispersion comprises at least one hydrocarbon-based oil as defined previously. Advantageously, the hydrocarbon-based oil is apolar and preferably chosen from hydrocarbon-based oils containing from 8 to 16 carbon atoms, in particular the apolar oils described previously.

Preferentially, the hydrocarbon-based oil is isododecane.

The polymer particles, in particular in the dispersion, preferably have a mean size, notably a number-mean size, ranging from 50 to 500 nm, notably ranging from 75 to 400 nm and better still ranging from 100 to 250 nm.

In general, a dispersion of polymer particles that is suitable for use in the invention may be prepared in the following manner, which is given as an example.

The polymerization may be performed in dispersion, i.e. by precipitation of the polymer during formation, with protection of the formed particles with a stabilizer.

In a first step, the stabilizing polymer is prepared by mixing the constituent monomer(s) of the stabilizing polymer with a free-radical initiator, in a solvent known as the synthesis solvent, and by polymerizing these monomers. In a second step, the constituent monomer(s) of the polymer of the particles are added to the stabilizing polymer formed and polymerization of these added monomers is performed in the presence of the free-radical initiator.

When the non-aqueous medium is a non-volatile hydrocarbon-based oil, the polymerization may be performed in an apolar organic solvent (synthesis solvent), followed by adding the non-volatile hydrocarbon-based oil (which should be miscible with said synthesis solvent) and selectively distilling off the synthesis solvent.

A synthesis solvent which is such that the monomers of the stabilizing polymer and the free-radical initiator are soluble therein, and the polymer particles obtained are insoluble therein, so that they precipitate therein during their formation, is thus chosen.

In particular, the synthesis solvent may be chosen from alkanes such as heptane or cyclohexane.

When the non-aqueous medium is a volatile hydrocarbon-based oil, the polymerization may be performed directly in said oil, which thus also acts as synthesis solvent. The monomers should also be soluble therein, as should the free-radical initiator, and the polymer of the particles which is obtained should be insoluble therein.

The monomers are preferably present in the synthesis solvent, before polymerization, in a proportion of 5% to 20% by weight. The total amount of the monomers may be present in the solvent before the start of the reaction, or part of the monomers may be added gradually as the polymerization reaction proceeds.

The free-radical initiator may notably be azobisisobutyronitrile or tert-butyl peroxy-2-ethylhexanoate.

The polymerization may be performed at a temperature ranging from 70 to

110°C.

The polymer particles are surface-stabilized, when they are formed during the polymerization, by means of the stabilizer.

The stabilization may be performed by any known means, and in particular by direct addition of the stabilizer, during the polymerization.

The stabilizer is preferably also present in the mixture before polymerization of the monomers of the polymer of the particles. However, it is also possible to add it continuously, notably when the monomers of the polymer of the particles are also added continuously.

From 10% to 30% by weight of stabilizer may be used relative to the total weight of monomers used.

The additional non-amino silicones

The composition according to the present invention may also optionally comprise one or more additional non-amino and non-phenyl silicones.

The term“non-amino silicone” means any silicone which does not include any primary, secondary, tertiary or quaternary amine groups, namely any silicone other than the aminosilicones (b) mentioned above.

The additional non-amino, non-phenyl silicones that may be used in the composition according to the invention are in particular polyorganosiloxanes, which may be in the form of aqueous solutions, i.e. dissolved, or optionally in the form of dispersions or microdispersions, or of aqueous emulsions. The polyorganosiloxanes may also be in the form of oils, waxes or gums.

Organopolysiloxanes are defined in greater detail in Walter Noll’s Chemistry and Technology of Silicones (1968), Academic Press.

The additional non-amino, non-phenyl silicones may be volatile or non volatile. When they are volatile, the non-amino silicones are more particularly chosen from those with a boiling point between of 60°C and 260°C, and even more particularly from:

(i) cyclic silicones including from 3 to 7 and preferably 4 to 5 silicon atoms.

These are, for example, octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane sold notably under the name Volatile Silicone 7207 by the company Union Carbide or Silbione 70045 V 2 by the company Rhodia, decam ethylcy cl opentasiloxane sold under the name Volatile Silicone 7158 by the company Union Carbide, and Silbione 70045 V 5 by the company Rhodia, and mixtures thereof.

Mention may also be made of cyclocopolymers of the dimethylsiloxane/methylalkylsiloxane type, such as Volatile Silicone FZ 3109 sold by the company Union Carbide, of chemical structure:

Mention may also be made of mixtures of cyclic silicones with organosilicon compounds, such as the mixture of octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane and tetratrimethylsilylpentaerythritol (50/50) and the mixture of octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane and oxy-l, l'-bis[2,2,2',2',3,3'- hexa(trimethylsilyloxy)neopentane];

(ii) linear volatile silicones containing 2 to 9 silicon atoms and having a viscosity of less than or equal to 5 c lO 6 m 2 /s at 25°C. An example is decam ethyltetrasiloxane sold notably under the name SH 200 by the company Toray Silicone. Silicones falling within this category are also described in the article published in Cosmetics and Toiletries, Vol. 91, Jan. 76, pages 27-32 - Todd & Byers Volatile Silicone Fluids for Cosmetics.

When the non-amino, non-phenyl silicones are non-volatile, use is preferably made of polyalkylsiloxanes, silicone gums, and polyorganosiloxanes modified with organofunctional groups, and mixtures thereof.

These non-amino silicones are more particularly chosen from polyalkylsiloxanes, among which mention may be made mainly of polydimethylsiloxanes containing trimethyl silyl end groups (Dimethicone according to the CTFA name) having a viscosity of from 5 x 10 6 to 2.5 m 2 /s at 25°C and preferably l x lO 5 to 1 m 2 /s. The viscosity of the silicones is measured, for example, at 25°C according to standard ASTM 445 Appendix C.

Among these polyalkylsiloxanes, mention may be made, in a non-limiting manner, of the following commercial products:

- the Silbione oils of the 47 and 70 047 series or the Mirasil oils sold by the company Rhodia, for instance the oil 70 047 V 500 000,

- the oils of the Mirasil series sold by the company Rhodia,

- the oils of the 200 series from the company Dow Corning, such as, more particularly, DC200 with a viscosity of 60 000 cSt,

- the Viscasil oils from the company General Electric and certain oils of the SF series (SF 96, SF 18) from the company General Electric.

Mention may also be made of polydimethylsiloxanes containing a, co-omega silanol groups (Dimethiconol according to the CTFA name) such as the oils of the 48 series from the company Rhodia.

In this category of polyalkylsiloxanes, mention may also be made of the products sold under the names Abil Wax 9800 and 9801 by the company Goldschmidt, which are poly(Ci-C2o)alkylsiloxanes.

The silicone gums that may be present in the composition according to the invention are notably polydiorganosiloxanes with high number-average molecular masses of between 200 000 and 1 000 000, used alone or as a mixture in a solvent. This solvent may be chosen from volatile silicones, polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) oils, polyphenylmethylsiloxane (PPMS) oils, isoparaffins, polyisobutylenes, methylene chloride, pentane, dodecane and tridecane, or mixtures thereof.

Needless to say, a person skilled in the art will take care to select this or these optional additional compounds such that the advantageous properties intrinsically associated with the composition according to the invention are not, or are not substantially, adversely affected by the envisaged addition(s).

The above additives may generally be present in an amount, for each of them, of between 0 and 20% by weight relative to the total weight of the composition.

The cosmetic treatment of keratin fibres

A subject of the present invention is also a cosmetic process for treating keratin fibres, in particular human keratin fibres such as the hair, comprising the application to said keratin fibres of a cosmetic composition as defined previously.

The composition may be applied to dry or wet keratin fibres that have optionally been washed with shampoo. Preferably, the composition according to the invention is applied to wet keratin fibres. On conclusion of the cosmetic treatment, the keratin fibres are optionally rinsed with water, optionally washed with a shampoo and then rinsed with water, before being dried or left to dry.

The composition according to the present invention is applied with a leave-on time that may range from 1 to 15 minutes, preferably from 2 to 10 minutes.

When the composition is in the form of a double phase (i.e. it contains two phases that are distinct from each other), it is stirred mechanically so as to perform extemporaneous mixing of the two phases immediately before application.

Use

The present invention also relates to the use of a cosmetic composition as defined previously for conditioning keratin fibres, in particular human keratin fibres such as the hair.

The examples that follow serve to illustrate the invention without, however, being limiting in nature.

Examples

In the examples that follow, all the amounts are given, unless otherwise indicated, as mass percentages of active material relative to the total weight of the composition.

Example 1 a) Test compositions

Compositions (Al) and (A2) according to the invention, and the comparative compositions (Bl) and (B2) below were prepared from the ingredients of which the contents are shown in the table below as mass percentages of starting material relative to the total weight of the composition. [Table 11

(1) Regalite R1100 CG hydrocarbon resin - Eastman Chemical

(2) Silsoft AX - Momentive

(3) Dow Corning PH-1555 HRI Cosmetic Fluid - Dow Corning b) Procedure

Locks of natural chestnut-brown hair underwent a preliminary relaxing treatment, to simulate degradation of the hair without changing the colour, before being washed with shampoo and then rinsed.

On conclusion of the rinsing, compositions (Al), (A2), (Bl) and (B2) above were applied to the locks of "degraded" wet hair in a proportion of 0.15 g of composition per gram of lock.

The locks thus treated were directly dried with a hairdryer without intermediate rinsing.

The sheen of each of the locks, and also that of locks of natural hair and of "degraded" hair, i.e. hair which has undergone a relaxing treatment, but not treated according to the invention were measured using Samba equipment (Bossa Nova Technologies) composed of a polarized light source, a polarized camera and a cylindrical lock holder. Software translates the parameters measured by the system into arbitrary gloss units (BNT). c) Results

The results of the gloss measurements obtained for each of the locks treated with compositions (Al) and (A2) according to the invention and the comparative compositions (Bl) and (B2), and also those of natural and degraded locks, are given in Figure 1.

The results obtained show that the compositions according to the present invention (Al) and (A2), comprising a combination of a hydrocarbon-based resin and of an aminosilicone, give the hair greater sheen than the comparative compositions (B 1) and (B2) not comprising this particular combination.

Compositions (Al) and (A2) significantly improve the sheen of the degraded hair. Composition (Al) even makes it possible to restore sheen of a level similar to that of the natural hair, or even to improve it.

Example 2 a) Test compositions

the composition (A3) according to the invention, and the comparative composition (B3) below were prepared from the ingredients of which the contents are shown in the table below as mass percentages of active material relative to the total weight of the composition.

[table 2]

b) Procedure

Each of the compositions (A3) and (B3) above were applied to locks of sensitized wet brown hair (HT4) in a proportion of 0.4 g of composition per gram of lock. The locks thus treated were then rinsed with water, and dried with a hairdryer by brushing.

The sheen of each of the locks, and also that of locks of natural hair a, i.e. hair which has been sensitized, but not treated according to the invention were measured using Samba equipment (Bossa Nova Technologies) composed of a polarized light source, a polarized camera and a cylindrical lock holder. Software translates the parameters measured by the system into arbitrary gloss units (BNT). c) Results

The gloss measurements obtained for each of the locks before and after treatment are expressed, arbitrary gloss units (BNT), in table 3 here below.

[Table 3]

The results thus obtained show that the claimed composition (A3) confers more sheen to the hair than the comparative composition (B3).
