Description:
USE OF COMPOUNDS RESULTING FROM A SUGAR POLYOL OR FROM A DEHYDROGENATED SUGAR POLYOL DERIVATIVE AS A UV-SCREENING AGENT; ANTISUN COMPOSITIONS CONTAINING SAME; AND NOVEL COMPOUNDS

The present invention relates to the cosmetic use of compounds resulting from a sugar polyol or from a dehydrogenated sugar polyol derivative of formula (I) or (II), which will be defined in detail below, as an agent for screening out UV radiation.

The present invention also relates to a composition comprising, in a cosmetically acceptable medium, at least one compound of formula (I) or (II).

The present invention also relates to novel compounds resulting from a sugar polyol or from a dehydrogenated sugar polyol derivative.

It is known that light radiation with wavelengths of between 280 nm and 400 nm permits tanning of the human epidermis and that light rays with wavelengths more particularly between 280 and 320 nm, known as UV-B rays, can harm the development of a natural tan. For these reasons, as well as for aesthetic reasons, there is a constant demand for means of controlling this natural tanning in order thus to control the colour of the skin; this UV-B radiation should thus be screened out.

It is also known that UV-A rays, with wavelengths between 320 and 400 nm, which cause tanning of the skin, are liable to induce adverse changes therein, in particular in the case of sensitive skin or skin that is continually exposed to solar radiation. UV-A rays cause in particular a loss of elasticity of the skin and the appearance of wrinkles leading to premature ageing of the skin. Thus, for aesthetic and cosmetic reasons, for instance conservation of the skin's natural elasticity, an increasingly large number of people wish to control the effect of UV-A rays on their skin. It is thus desirable also to screen out UV-A radiation.

For the purpose of protecting the skin and keratin materials against UV radiation, antisun compositions comprising organic screening agents that are active in the UV-A range and in the UV-B range are generally used.

These antisun compositions are quite often in the form of an emulsion, of oil-in-water type (i.e. a cosmetically and/or dermatologically acceptable support consisting of an aqueous dispersing continuous phase and of a fatty dispersed discontinuous phase), or of water-in-oil type (aqueous phase dispersed in a continuous fatty phase), which contains, in varying concentrations, one or more standard lipophilic organic screening agents and/or metal oxide mineral nanopigments capable of selectively absorbing the harmful UV radiation, these screening agents (and the amounts thereof) being selected as a function of the desired sun protection factor, the sun protection factor (SPF) being expressed mathematically as the ratio of the dose of UV radiation required to reach the erythema-forming threshold with the UV-screening agent to the dose of UV radiation required to reach the erythema-forming threshold without the UV-screening agent. In such emulsions, the hydrophilic screening agents are present in the aqueous phase and the lipophilic screening agents are present in the fatty phase.

Oil-in-water emulsions are, in general, more appreciated by consumers than water-in-oil emulsions, especially on account of their pleasant feel (similar to water) and of their presentation in the form of milk or non-greasy cream; however, they also lose their UV- protecting efficacy more easily once they come into contact with water; specifically, hydrophilic screening agents have a tendency to disappear with water, on bathing in the sea or in a swimming pool, under the shower or when practising water sports; thus, the antisun compositions that contain them, alone or combined with lipophilic screening agents, no longer afford the desired initial protection once the substrate (skin or hair) onto which they have been applied comes into contact with water.

Antisun compositions with improved water resistance may be obtained by using water-in- oil emulsions. Specifically, a hydrophilic screening agent is more stable towards water in a water-in-oil emulsion than in an oil-in-water emulsion. However, as has been indicated above, such compositions are still not entirely satisfactory since they leave upon application a greasy feel that users find particularly unpleasant.

Thus, there is still a need to find novel UV-screening agents that can be applied to the surface of the skin and/or the hair and that are more stable with respect to common attacking factors during use, such as water, washing, bathing, swimming, sand, perspiration, sebum and rubbing, than standard UV-screening agents.

It is known that organic sunscreens are subject to strict environmental regulation, especially to the European REACH regulation. They are evaluated on the criteria of persistance, bioaccumulation and ecotoxicity. In particular, the potential for bioaccumulation is first evaluated by considering various parameters including the molecular weight (MW) and log Kow. For a chemical substance not to be suspected of bioaccumulation, this log Kow should be less than 3.5. The log Kow may be calculated with various software, including KOWWIN v1.67a (The EPI (Estimation Programs Interface) Suite™ is a Windows®-based suite of physical/chemical property and environmental fate estimation programs developed by the EPA's Office of Pollution Prevention Toxics and Syracuse Research Corporation (SRC) http://www.epa.gov/oppt/exposure/pubs/episuite.htm).

In application WO 2007/098022, diester derivatives obtained by reaction of a cinnamic acid (including ferulic acid) with a sugar polyol or an anhydrous sugar polyol derivative (isosorbide, isomannide, isoidide) have already been proposed as UV-screening agents. However, these UV-screening agents are not completely satisfactory from a viewpoint of solubility in the oils commonly used in antisun formulations and from an environmental viewpoint.

The object of the present invention is thus to find novel UV-screening agents that can be applied to the surface of the skin and/or the hair and that are more stable with respect to common attacking factors during use, such as water, washing, bathing, swimming, sand, perspiration, sebum and rubbing, than standard UV-screening agents, and that have a good solubility in the antisun formulation and also good environmental behaviour.

The applicant has surprisingly discovered that novel compounds resulting from a sugar polyol or from a dehydrogenated sugar polyol derivative of formula (I) or (II), which will be defined in detail below, made it possible to achieve this objective.

This discovery forms the basis of the present invention.

The present invention relates to the cosmetic use of at least one compound resulting from a sugar polyol or from a dehydrogenated sugar polyol derivative of formula (I) or (II), which will be defined in detail below, as an agent for screening out UV radiation.

The present invention also relates to a composition comprising, in a cosmetically acceptable medium, at least one sugar polyol derivative of formula (I) or (II). The present invention also relates to novel compounds resulting from a sugar polyol or from a dehydrogenated sugar polyol derivative.

Other features, aspects and advantages of the invention will emerge on reading the detailed description that follows.

The term "cosmetically acceptable" means compatible with the skin and/or its integuments, which has a pleasant colour, odour and feel, and which does not cause any unacceptable discomfort (stinging, tautness or redness) liable to dissuade the consumer from using this composition.

The compound(s) of formula (I) or (II) in accordance with the invention may be present in the compositions according to the invention in a concentration of between 0.1 % and 15% and preferably between 0.2% and 10% by weight relative to the total weight of the composition.

The additional mineral screening agents are chosen from coated or uncoated metal oxide pigments in which the mean size of the primary particles is preferentially between 5 nm and 100 nm (preferably between 10 nm and 50 nm), for instance titanium oxide (amorphous or crystallized in rutile and/or anatase form), iron oxide, zinc oxide, zirconium oxide or cerium oxide pigments, which are all UV-photoprotective agents that are well known per se.

The pigments may be coated or uncoated.

The coated pigments are pigments that have undergone one or more surface treatments of chemical, electronic, mechanochemical and/or mechanical nature with compounds as described, for example, in Cosmetics & Toiletries, February 1990, Vol. 105, pp. 53-64, such as amino acids, beeswax, fatty acids, fatty alcohols, anionic surfactants, lecithins, sodium, potassium, zinc, iron or aluminium salts of fatty acids, metal alkoxides (titanium or aluminium alkoxides), polyethylene, silicones, proteins (collagen, elastin), alkanolamines, silicon oxides, metal oxides or sodium hexametaphosphate. As is known, silicones are organosilicon polymers or oligomers of linear or cyclic, branched or crosslinked structure, of variable molecular weight, obtained by polymerization and/or polycondensation of suitably functionalized silanes, and consist essentially of a repetition of main units in which the silicon atoms are linked together via oxygen atoms (siloxane bond), optionally substituted hydrocarbon-based radicals being directly attached via a carbon atom to the said silicon atoms.

The term "silicones" also includes the silanes required for their preparation, in particular alkylsilanes.

The silicones used for the coating of the pigments suitable for the present invention are preferably chosen from the group consisting of alkylsilanes, polydialkylsiloxanes and polyalkylhydrosiloxanes. More preferably still, the silicones are chosen from the group containing octyltrimethylsilane, polydimethylsiloxanes and polymethylhydrosiloxanes.

Of course, before being treated with silicones, the metal oxide pigments may have been treated with other surface agents, in particular with cerium oxide, alumina, silica, aluminium compounds or silicon compounds, or mixtures thereof.

The coated pigments are more particularly titanium oxides that have been coated:

- with silica, such as the product Sunveil from the company Ikeda and the product Eusolex T-AVO from the company Merck,

- with silica and alumina and treated with a silicone, such as the products Microtitanium Dioxide MT 600 SAS, Microtitanium Dioxide MT 500 SAS or Microtitanium Dioxide MT 100 SAS from the company Tayca,

- with silica, alumina and aluminium stearate and treated with a silicone, such as the product STT-30-DS from the company Titan Kogyo,

- with silica and treated with a silicone, such as the product UV-Titan X 195 from the company Kemira, or the product SMT-100 WRS from the company Tayca,

- with alumina and treated with a silicone, such as the products Tipaque TTO-55 (S) from the company Ishihara or UV Titan M 262 from the company Kemira,

- with triethanolamine, such as the product STT-65-S from the company Titan Kogyo, - with stearic acid, such as the product Tipaque TTO-55 (C) from the company Ishihara,

- with sodium hexametaphosphate, such as the product Microtitanium Dioxide MT 150 W from the company Tayca.

The filler may be a soft-focus filler.

The term "soft-focus" filler means a filler which in addition gives the complexion transparency and a hazy effect. Preferably, the soft-focus fillers have a mean particle size of less than or equal to 15 microns. These particles may be in any form and in particular may be spherical or non-spherical. These fillers are more preferably non- spherical.

The concentration of these fillers with an effect on the signs of ageing in the compositions according to the invention may be between 0.1 % and 40%, or even between 0.1 % and 20% by weight, relative to the total weight of the composition.

Agents for promoting the naturally pinkish coloration of the skin

Mention may be made especially of:

- a self-tanning agent, i.e. an agent which, when applied to the skin, especially to the face, can produce a tan effect that is more or less similar in appearance to that which may result from prolonged exposure to the sun (natural tan) or under a UV lamp;

- an additional colouring agent, i.e. any compound that has particular affinity for the skin, which allows it to give the skin a lasting, non-covering coloration (i.e. that does not have a tendency to opacify the skin) and that is not removed either with water or using a solvent, and that withstands both rubbing and washing with a solution containing surfactants. Such a lasting coloration is thus distinguished from the superficial and transient coloration provided, for example, by a makeup pigment; and mixtures thereof.

Examples of self-tanning agents that may especially be mentioned include:

dihydroxyacetone (DHA),

erythrulose, and

the combination of a catalytic system formed from:

manganese and/or zinc oxide salts, and

alkali metal and/or alkaline-earth metal hydrogen carbonates.

The self-tanning agents are generally chosen from monocarbonyl or polycarbonyl compounds, for instance isatin, alloxan, ninhydrin, glyceraldehyde, mesotartaric aldehyde, glutaraldehyde, erythrulose, pyrazolin-4,5-dione derivatives as described in patent application FR 2 466 492 and WO 97/35842, dihydroxyacetone (DHA) and 4,4- dihydroxypyrazolin-5-one derivatives as described in patent application EP 903 342. DHA will preferably be used.

DHA may be used in free and/or encapsulated form, for example in lipid vesicles such as liposomes, especially described in patent application WO 97/25970.

In general, the self-tanning agent is present in an amount ranging from 0.01 % to 20% by weight and preferably in an amount of between 0.1 % and 10% of the total weight of the composition.

Other dyes that allow modification of the colour produced by the self-tanning agent may also be used.

These dyes may be chosen from synthetic or natural direct dyes.

These dyes may be chosen, for example, from red or orange dyes of the fluorane type such as those described in patent application FR 2 840 806. Mention may be made, for example, of the following dyes:

- tetrabromofluorescein or eosin known under the CTFA name: CI 45380 or Red 21

These dyes may also be chosen from indole derivatives, for instance the monohydroxyindoles as described in patent FR 2 651 126 (i.e.: 4-, 5-, 6- or 7- hydroxyindole) or the dihydroxyindoles as described in patent EP-B-0 425 324 (i.e.: 5,6- dihydroxyindole, 2-methyl-5,6-dihydroxyindole, 3-methyl-5,6-dihydroxyindole or 2,3- dimethyl-5,6-dihydroxyindole).

Abrasive fillers or exfoliants As exfoliants that may be used in rinse-out compositions according to the invention, examples that may be mentioned include exfoliant or scrubbing particles of mineral, plant or organic origin. Thus, polyethylene beads or powder, Nylon powder, polyvinyl chloride powder, pumice powder, ground apricot kernel or walnut husk, sawdust, glass beads and alumina, and mixtures thereof, may be used, for example. Mention may also be made of Exfogreen® from Solabia (bamboo extract), extracts of strawberry akenes (Strawberry Akenes from Greentech), peach kernel powder, apricot kernel powder, and finally, in the field of plant powders with an abrasive effect, mention may be made of cranberry kernel powder.

Exemple 1 of synthesis of the compound (g) : Isosorbide 2-(4-methoxycinnamate)

Compound (g) is obtained by reaction between monoprotected isosorbide (tetrahydropyrane ether) and methoxy cinnamic acid followed by selective deprotection using acid to give desired compound.

Preparation of isosorbide 5-Tetrahydropyrane-(4-methoxycinnamate)

A 500ml 3-neck flask fitted with a stir bar, addition funnel, long stem thermometer and a short air condenser with guard tube was charged with 300 ml dry pyridine, 250ml dichloromethane and 1 14 gm (0.496 mole) of isosorbide 5-THP. The mixture was stirred until a clear solution formed and chilled in an ice bath until the batch temperature was 0-5 C. A solution of 106 gm 4-methoxycinnamoyl chloride (0.539 mole) in 50 mis dichloromethane was added dropwise so as to maintain the reaction mixture below 5. A brown precipitate soon appeared. The mixture was allowed to warm to room temperature and stirred for 3 days. The reaction mixture was slowly added to 350 ml concentrated HCI mixed with 400 ml distilled water. The final pH was 1-2. The organic material was extracted with dichloromethane; the DCM layer washed several times with saturated NaHC03 solution, distilled water and then dried over anhydrous magnesium sulfate. The solution was filtered and the DCM removed on a Rotavap to give a viscous oil weighting 192g 99 % theory. The 1 H NMR spectrum was consistent with the desired structure.

Preparation of isosorbide 2-(4-methoxycinnamate)

700 ml of methanol was added to the esterified reaction mixture and it was stirred for 5.5 hrs to remove the THP protecting group with pyridinium 4-toluene sulphonate as catalyst. The reaction mixture was transferred to a 1000 ml rb flask and the methanol was removed on the Rotavap to 200 millibar with a bath temperature of 55 °C. On cooling the resulting oil crystallized. The product was recrystallized from ethanol to give 2-(4-methoxycinnamate),

NMR and Mass Spectrum analysis confirmed purity and structure of Isosorbide 2-(4- methoxycinnamate)

Melting point : 119-120 °C
