Description:

This application claims benefit of U.S. Provisional Application No. 60/638,110 filed Dec. 23, 2004, the contents of which are incorporated herein by reference. This application also claims benefit of priority under 35 U.S.C. § 119 to French Patent Application No. 04 10800, filed Oct. 13, 2004, the contents of which are also incorporated by reference.

The present disclosure relates to a composition for coloring/dyeing keratin materials, for instance keratin fibers such as the hair, comprising at least one pigment and at least one particular electrophilic monomer, and a process for dyeing keratin materials using this composition.

Within the field of coloring keratin fibers it is already known to color keratin fibers by a variety of techniques, starting from direct dyes or pigments, for non-permanent colorations, or from dye precursors, for permanent colorations.

Non-permanent coloration or direct coloration involves dyeing the keratin fibers with dyeing compositions containing direct dyes. These dyes are colored, and coloring molecules which have an affinity for the keratin fibers. They are applied to the keratin fibers for a time required for the desired coloration to be obtained, then rinsed off.

The conventional dyes which are used include, for example, dyes of the nitrobenzene, anthraquinone, nitropyridine, azo, xanthene, acridine, azine or triarylmethane type or natural dyes.

Some of these dyes can be used under lightening conditions, allowing colorations to be obtained which are visible on dark hair.

It is also known to dye keratin fibers permanently by oxidation coloring. This coloring technique involves applying to the keratin fibers a composition containing dye precursors such as oxidation bases and couplers. These precursors, under the action of an oxidant, will form at least one colored species in the hair.

The variety of molecules employed as oxidation bases and couplers can make it possible to obtain a rich palette of colors, and the colorations resulting from them can be permanent, powerful, and/or resistant to external agents, in particular to light, inclement weather, washing, perspiration, and rubbing.

In order to be visible on dark hair, the colorations resulting from these two coloring techniques require a prior or simultaneous bleaching of the keratin fibers. This bleaching step, carried out with an oxidant such as hydrogen peroxide or persalts, can entail a not inconsiderable amount of degradatiori of the keratin fibers, which may impair their cosmetic properties. The hair then has a tendency to become rough, less easy to disentangle, and/or more fragile.

Another method of coloring keratin fibers involves using pigments. In effect, the use of a pigment at the surface of the keratin fibers makes it possible, generally speaking, to obtain colorations which are visible on dark hair, since the surface pigment masks the natural color of the fiber. The use of pigments for coloring keratin fibers is described, for example, in French Patent Application Publication No. FR 2 741 530, which recommends the use, for the coloring of the keratin fibers, of a composition comprising at least one dispersion of particles of film-forming polymer comprising at least one acid functional group, and at least one pigment dispersed in the continuous phase of said dispersion.

The coloration obtained by this mode of coloring can have the drawback of having a low level of resistance to shampooing.

French Patent Application Publication No. FR 2 833 489 discloses hair treatment compositions on the basis of compositions comprising electrophilic monomers. A composition of this kind can make it possible to obtain hair which is extremely well coated and not greasy.

The present disclosure, therefore, relates to new compositions for coloring or dyeing keratin materials, for instance keratin fibers such as the hair, which make it possible to obtain colorations which are visible on dark hair, without the need to lighten or bleach the fibers, and/or which may exhibit good resistance to shampooing.

Thus, in one embodiment, the present disclosure relates to a process for dyeing keratin materials such as keratin fibers comprising applying to the fibers a dyeing composition comprising, in a suitable dyeing medium, at least one pigment and at least one electrophilic cyanoacrylate monomer of formula (I) embedded image
in which R is chosen from alkyl radicals and alkoxyalkyl radicals.

The present disclosure also relates to a composition comprising, in a suitable dyeing medium, at least one pigment in an amount greater than 5% (w/w) by weight and at least one cyanoacrylate electrophilic monomer of formula (I).

The process in accordance with the present disclosure can make it possible to obtain a visible coloration on a dark keratin material. For example, in the case of dark keratin fibers, a highly visible coloration is obtained with no need to lighten or bleach the keratin fibers and hence it is possible to obtain a visible coloration on a dark keratin material without risking physical degradation of the keratin fibers. Moreover, this coloration exhibits good resistance to the various aggressive influences to which the hair may be subjected, such as shampooing, rubbing, light, inclement weather, perspiration, and permanent reshaping (“perming”). In at least one embodiment, the coloration shows good resistance to shampooing.

Given the variety of pigments which can be used in the composition of the present disclosure, it is possible to obtain colorations in varied, powerful and aesthetic shades, which can also be chromatic.

The present disclosure additionally relates to a kit comprising compositions comprising at least one pigment and at least one electrophilic cyanoacrylate monomer of formula (I).

As used herein, a “pigment” is understood to mean any organic and/or inorganic entity whose solubility in water is less than 0.01% at 20° C., for instance less than 0.0001%, and which exhibits absorption at a wavelength ranging from 350 nm to 700 nm, such as absorption with one maximum.

The pigments that can be useful in the present disclosure are selected from any organic and/or inorganic pigments known in the art, such as those described in the Kirk-Othmer encyclopaedia of chemical technology and in the Ullmann encyclopaedia of industrial chemistry.

The at least one pigment may be present in pigment paste or powder form.

The at least one pigment in accordance with the present disclosure may, for example, be chosen from white and/or colored pigments, lakes, special-effect pigments such as nacres or flakes, and mixtures thereof.

Non-limiting examples of white or colored inorganic pigments include titanium dioxide, with or without surface treatment, oxides of zirconium or of cerium, oxides of iron or of chromium, manganese violet, ultramarine blue, chromium hydrate and Prussian Blue.

Non-limiting mention may also be made of interference-effect pigments not attached to a substrate, such as liquid crystals (Helicones HC from Wacker), holographic interference flakes (Geometric Pigments or Spectra f/x from Spectratek). Special-effect pigments can also comprise fluorescent pigments, whether they be daylight-fluorescent substances or substances which produce ultraviolet fluorescence, phosphorescent pigments, photochromic pigments, thermochromic pigments, and quantum dots, sold for example by the company Quantum Dots Corporation.

The quantum dots are luminescent semi-conductive nanoparticles capable of emitting, under excitation by light, radiation having a wavelength ranging from 400 nm to 700 nm. These nanoparticles are known from the literature. For instance, they may be manufactured by the processes described, for example, in U.S. Pat. Nos. 6,225,198 or 5,990,479, in the publications cited therein, and also in the following publications: Dabboussi B.

In order to do this it is possible to add to the composition of the present disclosure, non-exhaustively, polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) or else cyanoacrylate-based copolymers of the kind described in U.S. Pat. No. 6,224,622.

The composition of the present disclosure may also comprise at least one filler. As used herein, the term “filler” is understood to mean, without limitation, colorless or white, mineral or synthetic, lamellar or non-lamellar particles. The at least one filler may be present in an amount ranging from 0% to 48% by weight, relative to the total weight of the composition, for instance from 0.01% to 30% by weight, and such as from 0.02% to 20% by weight.

For example, the at least one propellant can be chosen from air, carbon dioxide, compressed nitrogen or else a soluble gas such as dimethyl ether, hydrocarbons which are halogenated (e.g., fluorinated) or non-halogenated, and mixtures thereof.

The present disclosure also relates to a process comprising applying the composition of the present disclosure to keratin materials, for instance keratin fibers such as the hair, in the presence of at least one nucleophile.

According to one embodiment of the process of the present disclosure, the at least one nucleophile capable of initiating the polymerization of the at least one cyanoacrylate monomer may be applied to the keratin fibers beforehand. The at least one nucleophile may be used in pure form, in solution, or in the form of an emulsion, or may be encapsulated. It may also be added to the anhydrous composition at the time of use, just before application to the keratin fibers.

By way of non-limiting example, the at least one nucleophile can be water. This water may be provided, for example, by prior wetting of the keratin fibers. It may also be added directly to the composition before application.

According to one embodiment, it is possible to modify the polymerization kinetics by wetting the fibers beforehand by means of an aqueous solution whose pH has been adjusted using a base, an acid or an acid/base mixture. The acid and/or the base may be inorganic or organic.

According to another embodiment, the process of the present disclosure may be carried out in a number of steps comprising applying a composition containing at least one pigment to the fibers, and then applying a composition comprising the at least one electrophilic cyanoacrylate monomer of formula (I), wherein the at least one nucleophile is present in the composition comprising the pigment or in a separate composition. According to this embodiment, the composition comprising the at least one pigment can be, for example, an aqueous solution of pigments, which allows the fiber to be wetted and the polymerization to be initiated when the at least one electrophilic cyanoacrylate monomer is applied.

According to the process of the present disclosure, another embodiment comprises either applying the at least one electrophilic cyanoacrylate monomer and the at least one pigment from a single composition, or applying the at least one pigment in a first phase and then the at least one electrophilic cyanoacrylate monomer.

The process of the present disclosure may include additional, intermediate or final, steps, such as the application of a cosmetic product, a rinsing step and/or a drying step. Drying may be carried out under a hood, with a hairdryer and/or with a smoothing iron. For example, the application of the compositions in accordance with the present disclosure may be followed by a rinsing operation.

It is also possible to carry out multiple applications of the composition of the present disclosure, so as to obtain a superposition of layers, to achieve specific properties of the deposit in terms of chemical nature, mechanical strength, thickness, appearance and/or feel.

In order to improve, among other things, the adhesion of the poly(cyanoacrylate) formed in situ, the fiber may be pretreated with any types of polymer.

In order to modify the anionic polymerization kinetics it is also possible to enhance the nucleophilicity of the fiber by chemical conversion of the keratin fibers. By way of example, non-limiting mention may be made of the reduction of the disulfide bridges, of which the keratin is partly composed, to thiols before the composition of the present disclosure is applied. Non-exhaustively, mention may be made, as reductants of the disulfide bridges of which the keratin is partly composed, of the following compounds: anhydrous sodium thiosulphate, powdered sodium metabisulphite, thiourea, ammonium sulphite, thioglycolic acid, thiolactic acid, ammonium thiolactate, glycerol monothioglycolate, ammonium thioglycolate, thioglycerol, 2,5-dihydroxybenzoic acid, diammonium dithioglycolate, strontium thioglycolate, calcium thioglycolate, zinc formaldehyde-sulphoxylate, isooctyl thioglycolate, dl-cysteine and monoethanolamine thioglycolate.

Application of the composition of the present disclosure may also be preceded by a hair treatment, such as a direct or oxidation coloring operation.

According to the present disclosure, the at least one electrophilic cyanoacrylate monomer can be chosen from, for example, monomers capable of undergoing polymerization on the keratin fibers under cosmetically acceptable conditions. For instance, the polymerization of the at least one electrophilic cyanoacrylate monomer can take place at a temperature less than or equal to 80° C., such as ranging from 10° C. to 80° C., for example ranging from 20° C. to 80° C., which does not prevent the application being finished by drying under a hood, blow-drying or the passage of a flat iron or curling tongs.

The present disclosure additionally relates to a coloring kit comprising at least one first composition, which comprises at least one pigment, and at least one second composition, which comprises at least one electrophilic cyanoacrylate monomer of formula (I) and, optionally, at least one third composition, which comprises at least one nucleophile. According to this embodiment, the at least one composition comprising the at least one pigment is an aqueous composition and the at least one composition comprising the at least one electrophilic cyanoacrylate monomer is an anhydrous composition.

According to another embodiment, the kit comprises at least one first, anhydrous composition, which comprises at one pigment and at least one electrophilic cyanoacrylate monomer, and at least one second composition, which comprises at least one nucleophile.

Other than in the operating examples, or where otherwise indicated, all numbers expressing quantities of ingredients, reaction conditions, and so forth used in the specification and claims are to be understood as being modified in all instances by the term “about.” Accordingly, unless indicated to the contrary, the numerical parameters set forth in the following specification and attached claims are approximations that may vary depending upon the desired properties sought to be obtained by the present disclosure. At the very least, and not as an attempt to limit the application of the doctrine of equivalents to the scope of the claims, each numerical parameter should be construed in light of the number of significant digits and ordinary rounding approaches.

Notwithstanding that the numerical ranges and parameters setting forth the broad scope of the disclosure are approximations, the numerical values set forth in the specific examples are reported as precisely as possible. Any numerical value, however, inherently contain certain errors necessarily resulting from the standard deviation found in their respective testing measurements.

The non-limiting examples below make it possible to illustrate the present disclosure without, however, limiting its scope.
