DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

[0019] As required, detailed embodiments of the present invention are disclosed herein; however, it is to be understood that the disclosed embodiments are merely exemplary of the invention that may be embodied in various forms. The figures are not necessary to scale, some features may be exaggerated to show details of particular components. Therefore, specific structural and functional details disclosed herein are not to be interpreted as limiting, but merely as a basis for the claims and as a representative basis for teaching one skilled in the art to variously employ the present invention.

[0020] The present invention provides cosmetic, cosmopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical formulations containing hydrolyzed whole egg(s). Whole eggs are a great source of nutrients and function as carriers/deliverers of various active and inactive ingredients to the respective human/animal bodily components, organs, tissues, cells, etc. The present invention utilizes chicken eggs but can use any and all types of eggs, including but not limited to, poultry and reptile eggs.

[0021] The formulation of the present invention includes, but is not limited to, a skin care formulation, a muscle soothing formulation and a cellulite formulation. There are three unique products, discussed in detail below, that have radically different functions ranging from soothing sore muscles, to expediting the repairing process of the skin and reducing the visual appearance of cellulite. The common factor that is shared by all of these products is the use of the hydrolyzed whole egg to achieve the desired effects in each case and the unique processing method of incorporating the egg within the formulation and allowing the whole egg to act as a carrier of the active ingredients in each case.

[0022] The specific examples below will enable the present invention to be better understood. However, they are given merely by way of guidance and do not imply any limitation to this invention.

[0025] In another embodiment of the present invention, the above skin care formulation (HEALFAST™) may be embedded or incorporated onto a patch or bandage, which can be adhered onto the target area of the human body (for example, a cut or laceration on the forearm). The patch or bandage may be of any shape or size and it comprises an adhesive strip for attaching the pad or bandage onto the human user and a pad containing the skin care formulation, which is placed directly upon the target area. The patch or bandage may further comprise removable tabs (which are removed at the moment of use) and a sterile wrapper or packaging.

[0026] The skin care formulation may be embedded or incorporated onto or into the pad through any and all techniques utilized in embedding medicament, ointment or other substances. The pad and adhesive strip may be constructed of any stretchable, bendable or breathable material, including various fabrics. The pad and adhesive strip may also be constructed of water resistant materials. The pad may be an absorbent cushion pad that has excellent drainage properties. The patch or bandage may be dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic.

[0027] In still another embodiment, the muscle soothing formulation and cellulite formulation discussed below may also be embedded or incorporated onto patches or bandages. Like the HEALFAST™ patches or bandages, the muscle soothing and cellulite patches or bandages may also be attached onto the target area of the human anatomy (for example, the cellulite patch may be placed upon the woman's thighs or the muscle soothing patch may be adhered to an aching back or foot). The patches may also contain concentrated amount of the formulation and based upon the formulation, the patch or bandage may be designed to be used for hours or for days and even, for weeks. The patches or bandages are utilized to apply the formulation directly onto target areas and may provide a less messy alternative to direct application of the formulation onto the user's body. The patches will also prevent contact of the formulation with the user's clothing.

The cellulite formulation of the present invention may be manufactured by the following method: shearing a mixture of water, triethanolamine, glycerin, propylene glycol and methyl paraben and heating the mixture to a temperature from about 70 degrees Celsius to about 80 degrees Celsius; adding sweet almond oil, cetyl lactate, stearic acid, paraffin, sorbitan stearate, glyceryl stearate, cyclomethicone and dimethicone copotyol, and propylparaben to said mixture and shearing and heating the entire mixture to a temperature from about 90 degrees Celsius to about 100 degrees Celsius; adding a hydrolyzed egg to the oil phase of the entire mixture while stopping the heating process and adding the oil phase to the water phase to form an emulsion; upon formation of the emulsion, cooling the entire formulation; and adding grapefruit oil, lavender oil, geranium maculatum oil, juniperus communis oil, cumen extract, sambucus nigra extract, caraway extract, sage extract, parsley extract, primula veris extract and phenoxyethanol and shearing the entire formulation. Table 3 below indicates the ingredients of the cellulite product of the present invention including the sequence of addition into the formulation and the % W/W of each ingredient relate to the entire formulation. 3

[0032] Below is a manufacturing process that is suitable for all three products which depicts a unique method of the addition of the water-soluble egg into the oil phase of the formulation at relatively high temperatures. The process allows the egg to encapsulate the oils and permits the formulation containing the encapsulated egg to penetrate into the skin and deliver the active ingredients. The egg with the encapsulated oils is termed “Eggosomes” and is formed prior to the emulsification process.

[0033] The manufacturing process of the present invention is applicable to Examples 1-3 of the present invention and relates to the ingredients and sequence of additions illustrated in Tables 1-3. The manufacturing procedure is as follows:

[0034] Into a stainless steel, jacketed kettle equipped with at least one high shear mixer and at least one planetary mixer, Sequence #1 is loaded under adequate shear and heated from about 76 degrees Celsius to about 78 degrees Celsius. (For purposes of this invention, adequate shear is defined as from about 800 to about 2000 RPMs).

[0035] After adequate shearing and heating of Sequence #1, Sequence #2 is then loaded to the kettle and is further heated from about 82 degrees Celsius to about 86 degrees Celsius, with adequate shear. (For purposes of this invention, adequate shear is defined as from about 800 to about 2000 RPMs).

[0036] When the kettle reaches its optimum temperatures, the hydrolyzed whole egg is added to the oil phase kettle and the heating is stopped. The hydrolyzed egg is gently stirred into the oil, and is evenly coated with the oil, but not burned (this is known as the formation of the “Eggosome”). Within seconds, the oil phase is added to the water phase, thus completing the “Eggosome” or carrier vehicle. The emulsion is formed. The temperature and energy are carefully monitored to ensure that a small particle is formed (this can be confirmed under the microscope).

[0037] Once the emulsion is formed, the cooling process begins and the process may then be continued until the phases of the formula are further added.

[0038] The “Eggosome” or “Ovasome” of the present invention is capable of carrying and delivering any and all types of ingredients, active and inactive, natural and synthetic, drugs, nutrients, or bioactives. The formulation of the present invention can also be modified to function as a cosmetic and/or pharmaceutical formulation depending on the additional ingredients added to this unique manufacturing process and depending on what ingredients may be desired to be delivered to a human or animal target. In one embodiment, the formulation of the present invention may be simply applied to the skin and the semi-permeable nature of the skin will allow entrance of the formulation and the “Eggosome” or “Ovasome” will then be able to deliver the desired material to the desired target. Since the “Eggosome” or “Ovasome” is capable of carrying various ingredients including active drugs, the formulation of the present invention may also have medicinal applications. The present invention may also include accelerated healing ingredients that may be applied to adhesive patches and bandages for commercial and hospital use.

[0039] Numerous modifications and variations of the present invention are possible in light of the above teachings. It is therefore to be understood that within the scope of the attendant claims attached hereto, this invention may be practiced otherwise than as specifically disclosed herein.
