FIELD OF THE INVENTION

[0002] The present invention is directed to carrier materials containing one or more benefit agents, e.g., a liquid fragrance, that have increased deposition onto substrates as a result of a plurality of cationic coating materials.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0003] The consumer products industry has long searched for ways to enhance the performance of fabric care products, like a fabric softener, and to make the products more esthetically pleasing to consumers. For example, fragrance is an important ingredient in successful commercial fabric care products because, in addition to imparting an esthetically pleasing odor, a fragrance conveys a positive image of product performance to the consumer, e.g., the fabric is clean and fresh.

[0004] Fragrances typically are added to fabric care products to provide a fresh, clean impression for the product itself, as well as to the fabric treated with the product. Although the fragrance does not enhance the performance of a fabric care product, the fragrance makes these products more esthetically pleasing, and consumers expect and demand a pleasing odor for such products.

[0005] A fragrance plays an important, and often a determining, role when the consumer selects and purchases a fabric care product. Many consumers desire the fragrance to be deposited on the fabric and remain on the fabric for an extended time in order to convey a continuing impression of freshness. Consumers also desire fabric care products that impart a sufficient fragrance level to the fabric, and, in some embodiments, release the fragrance when the fabric is ironed.

[0006) Introduction of a fragrance into a fabric care product is restricted by considerations such as availability and cost, and also by an inability of the fragrance to sufficiently deposit onto a fabric, and then remain on the fabric during the wash, rinse, and drying cycles. For example, a substantial amount of the fragrance deposited on a fabric is removed from the fabric during the drying process, even when the treated fabrics are line dried. It also has been demonstrated that a substantial amount of the fragrance in currently available fabric care products is lost during rinse cycles. This fragrance loss is attributed to the water solubility of various fragrance ingredients, to the volatility of fragrance ingredients that deposit on the fabric, and the wash-off of the fragrance from the fabric.

[0007] Typical fabric care products, such as laundry detergent compositions and fabric softener compositions, contain about 0.1% to about 1%, by weight, of a fragrance. U.S. Pat. No. 6,051,540 discloses that in the course of the washing clothes with a standard powdered laundry detergent, or a fabric softener rinse, only a small fraction of the fragrance present in these fabric care products is actually transferred to the fabric, i.e., as low as 1% of the original amount of fragrance present in these products.

[0008] Attempts have been made to increase fragrance deposition onto fabric, and to hinder or delay the release of the fragrance from the fabric, such that the laundered fabric remains esthetically pleasing for an extended length of time. One approach uses a carrier to introduce the fragrance to the fabric. The carrier is formulated to contain a fragrance and to adhere to the fabric during a washing cycle through particle entrainment or chemical change.

[0009] Fragrances have been adsorbed onto various materials, such as silica and clay, for delivery of the fragrance from detergents and fabric softeners to fabrics. U.S. Pat. No. 4,954,285 discloses fragrance particles especially for use with dryer-released fabric softening/antistatic agents. The fragrance particles are formed by adsorbing the fragrance onto silica particles having a diameter of greater than about one micron. The fragrance particles are included in dryer-activated solid fabric softener compositions including coated particles of fabric softener. The compositions release softener to fabrics in the dryer, and the fragrance particles improve the esthetic character of the fabric softener deposited on the fabric. The fragrance particles also can be admixed with detergent granules and can be coated or uncoated. This system has a drawback in that the fragrance is not sufficiently protected, and frequently is lost or destabilized during processing,

[0010] Another problem often associated with perfumed fabric care products is excessive odor intensity. A need therefore exists for a fragrance delivery system that provides satisfactory fragrance both during use and from the dry laundered fabric, and also provides prolonged storage benefits and an acceptable odor intensity of the fabric care product.

[0011] U.S. Patent No. 6,790,814 discloses that a fragrance loaded into a porous carrier, such as zeolite particles, can be effectively protected from premature release of the fragrance by coating the loaded carrier particles with a hydrophobic oil, then encapsulating the resulting carrier particles with a water-soluble or water-dispersible, but oil-insoluble, material, such as a starch or modified starch.

[0012] U.S. Pat. Nos. 4,946,624; 5,112,688; and 5,126,061 disclose microcapsules prepared by a coacervation process. The microcapsules have a complex structure, with a large central core of encapsulated material, preferably a fragrance, and walls that contain small wall inclusion particles of either the core material or another material that can be activated to disrupt the wall. The microcapsules are incorporated into a fabric softener composition having a pH of about 7 or less and which further contains a cationic fabric softener. The encapsulated fragrance preferably is free of large amounts of water-soluble ingredients. The microcapsules are added separately to the fabric softener compositions. Ingredients that have high and low volatilities, compared to desired fragrance, either can be added to or removed from the fragrance to achieve the desired volatility. This type of controlled release system cannot be used with all types of fragrance ingredients, in particular, with fragrance ingredients that are relatively water soluble and/or are incapable of depositing onto a fabric.

[0013] U.S. Pat. No. 4,402,856 discloses a coacervation technique to provide fragrance particles for fabric care products containing gelatin or a mixture of gelatin with gum arabic, carboxymethylcellulose, and/or anionic polymers. The gelatin is hardened with a natural and/or synthetic tanning agent and a carbonyl compound. The particles adhere to the fabric during rinse cycles, and are carried over to the dryer. Diffusion of the fragrance from the capsules occurs only in the heat-elevated conditions of a dryer.

[0014] U.S. Pat. No. 4,152,272 discloses incorporating a fragrance into wax particles to protect the fragrance during storage and through the laundry process. The fragrance/wax particles are incorporated into an aqueous fabric conditioner composition. The fragrance diffuses from the particles onto the fabric in the heat-elevated conditions of the dryer.

[0015J U.S. Pat. Nos. 4,446,032 and 4,464,271 disclose liquid or solid fabric softener compositions comprising microencapsulated fragrance suspensions. The compositions contain sustained release fragrances prepared by combining nonconfined fragrance oils with encapsulated or physically entrapped fragrance oils. These combinations are designed such that the nonconfined fragrance oil is bound in a network of physically entrapped fragrance oil and suspending agent. The controlled release system comprises a mixture of (i) a nonconfined fragrance composition, (ii) one or more fragrance oils which are physically entrapped in one or more types of solid particles, and (iii) a suspending agent such as hydroxypropyl cellulose, silica, xanthan gum, ethyl cellulose, or combinations thereof. The nonconfined fragrance, the entrapped fragrance, and the suspending agent are premixed prior to preparation of the liquid or solid fabric softener compositions.

[0016] U.S. Pat. Nos. 4,973,422 and 5,137,646 disclose fragrance particles for use in cleaning and conditioning compositions. The particles comprise a fragrance dispersed within a wax material. The particles further can be coated with a material that renders the particles more substantive to the surface being treated, for example, a fabric in a laundry process. Such materials help deliver the particles to the fabric and maximize fragrance release directly on the fabric. In general, the coating materials are water-insoluble cationic materials.

[0017] U.S. Pat. No. 6,024,943 discloses particles containing absorbed liquids and methods of making the particles. A fragrance is absorbed within organic polymer particles, which further have a polymer at their exterior. The external polymer has free hydroxyl groups, which promote deposition of the particles from a wash or rinse liquor. The external polymer can be a component of an encapsulating shell, but typically is used as a stabilizer during polymerization of the particles. A highly hydrolyzed polyvinyl alcohol is a preferred external polymer.

[0018] U.S. Pat. No. 6,740,631 discloses a free-flowing powder formed from solid hydrophobic, positively-charged nanospheres containing an active ingredient, such as a fragrance, encapsulated in a moisture sensitive microsphere. To maximize deposition of the nanospheres on a fabric, particle size is optimized to ensure entrainment of the particles within the fabric fibers, and a sufficiently high cationic charge density on the particle surface is provided to maximize an ionic interaction between the particles and the fabric. [0019| U.S. Pat. No. 7,1 19,057 discloses a polymeric encapsulated fragrance where the fragrance encapsulating polymer is coated with one cationic polymer. The cationic polymer aids in the deposition and stability of the polymeric encapsulated fragrance. The load of the cationic polymer is preferably from about 10% to about 500% of the fragrance containing composition, based on a ratio with the fragrance on a dry basis.

[0020] U.S. Pat. No. 7,119,060 discloses solid spheres comprising a crystallized waxy material. The waxy material may have a fragrance or other active agent incorporated therein, together with a cationic, hydrophobic charge-enhancing agent and a cationic softening agent. The spheres adhere to a fabric because of the cationic charge, and when ironing a dried fabric, a burst of fragrance occurs. The load of fragrance or other active agent is limited to about 30%, by weight, of the waxy material.

[0021] U.S. Pat. App. No. 11/231,082 discloses the delivery of a benefit agent that is introduced into a formulation after admixture with a carrier. The agent and carrier composition requires a viscosity of at least 400 cps.

[0022] Generally, the prior art does not sufficiently teach or suggest a composition having a rnicroparticulate material coated with one or more layers of two different cationic polymers for increased deposition of the microparticulate onto a substrate, such as a fabric. Moreover, the prior art does not teach or suggest a methodology for making a microparticulate material containing a benefit agent, such as a fragrance, coated with layers of two different cationic polymers.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0023] The present disclosure relates to compositions comprising a cationically surface- modified microparticulate material, containing at least one benefit agent. Benefit agents include flavors, fragrances, insect repellents, silicone oils, fabric softening agents, anti-static agents, anti-wrinkle agents, stain-resistant agents, emollients, moisturizing agents, waxes, ultraviolet (UV) ray absorbers, antimicrobial agents, antioxidants, pigments, film-forming agents, skin-care agents, hair-care agents, scalp-care agents, anti-dandruff agents, hair- coloring agents, hair-conditioning agents, and the like. The cationic surface modification comprises two different cationic coating materials which increase the deposition and retention of the benefit agent-containing microparticulate material on a substrate, for example fabric, hair, skin, teeth, and hard surfaces. The disclosed compositions can further include additives, for example water, organic solvents, and surfactants, to formulate commercial products. Examples of compositions employing the disclosed benefit agent-containing microparticulate materials having a plurality of deposition-enhancing cationic coating materials include cleansing products, such as shampoos, conditioners, body washes, moisturizing agents, creams, shower gels, soaps, detergents, toothpastes, surface cleansing agents, and surface-conditioning agents, such as fabric softeners.

[0024] The microparticulate material can be a mixture of the benefit agent and a carrier agent or can be entirely composed of one or more benefit agents. One example is a microparticulate that is a porous solid carrier loaded with a benefit agent. The carrier can be a polymer (including film-forming polymers, phase-separated or coacervated polymers, and water-insoluble polymers, copolymers, and cross-polymers), wax, water-insoluble organic solid or liquid, and/or water-insoluble inorganic solid. Additionally, the microparticulates can be emulsion droplets formed, for example, from one or more benefit agents dispersed in two immiscible liquids. The microparticulate can further be a mixture of a benefit agent and a clay, such as a smectite clay, an organoclay, a water-insoluble inorganic microparticulate solid, hydrophilic liquid, hydrophobic liquid, gel, gum, solid including hydrocarbon solid, ester and/or ether solvent, silicone fluid, elastomer, wax, polymer, and/or mixtures, or the like.

[0025] The present disclosure additionally relates to the eationic surface modification of the microparticulate with two different polymers, a Type-1 Polymer and a Type-2 Polymer. The Type-1 Polymer is a polymer having a cationic atom content in the range of about 3 to about 20 wt. % and a weight average molecular weight in the range of about 300,000 to 800,000 Dalton. The Type-2 Polymer is a polymer having a cationic atom content of about 0.1 to about 3 wt. % and a weight average molecular weight greater than about 1,000,000 Dalton.

[0026] Importantly, the present improved characteristics of the disclosed composition are not obtained if the microparticulate is coated with only the Type-1 Polymer or coated with only the Type-2 Polymer, if the microparticulate is only coated with less than about 10%, more often less than about 60% of the Type-2 Polymer, or if the microparticulate is coated with two polymers where one or both do not meet weight average molecular weight and/or cationic atom content requirements.

[0027] The herein disclosed compositions and methods provide compositions with improved characteristics and use much lower amounts of cationic polymer(s) than previously employed in the prior art, making the disclosed compositions more commercially and industrially applicable. One important aspect of compositions that employ significantly lower amounts of cationic polymer(s) is that the resulting compositions can have a much higher concentration of benefit agent(s). Raising the concentration of the benefit agent in benefit agent containing compositions, with the herein defined improved characteristics, decreases the costs and formulation problems associated with the inclusion of benefit agent containing compositions in commercial products. The improved characteristics of the disclosed composition include stability against strong coagulation, enhanced deposition, and enhanced retention on a substrate. Herein, strong coagulation means the average particle size in a dispersion of agglomerated particles is at least three times greater than the average particle size in a dispersion of unagglomerated particle. Additional scope and description can be found below.

Additionally, capsules made by the simple or complex coacervation of gelatin are also preferred for use with the coating. Capsules having shell walls comprised of polyurethane, polyamide, polyolefm, polysaccaharide, protein, silicone, lipid, modified cellulose, gums, polyacrylate, polyphosphazines, polystyrene, and polyesters or combinations of these materials are also applicable.

[0042] Although many variations of materials and process steps are possible, representative methods used for aminoplast encapsulation and gelatin encapsulation are disclosed in U.S. Pat. Nos. 3,516,941 and 2,800,457, respectively, each incorporated herein by reference. Both of these processes are discussed in the context of fragrance encapsulation and for use in consumer products in U.S. Pat. Nos. 4,145,184 and 5,112,688, respectively, each incorporated herein by reference.

[0043] Preferably, the microparticulate has a neutral or anionic surface charge. The surface charge on the microparticulate can often be determined by a measurement of the zeta (ζ)- potential and/or electrophoretic mobility. When the microparticulate has a neutral or cationic surface charge the microparticulate is often treated with an anionic polymer. According to one embodiment of the cationically surface-modified benefit agent-containing microparticulate materials and methods described herein, the microparticulate material may be surface-treated with an anionic polymer or an anionic surfactant or mixtures thereof (herein termed anionic treatment agents), prior to the claimed surface-modification. The resulting anionic microparticulate material has approximately one monolayer of the anionic polymer and/or surfactant on the surface and is subsequently further surface-treated as described below for achieving the claimed cationic surface-modification. In this case, the anionic polymer and cationic polymer are not pre-mixed in the solution phase prior to adding to the microparticulate. Importantly, the anionic polymer and/or surfactant on the surface of the microparticulate is coated with the cationic polymer(s) disclosed herein and is neither entangled nor quatemized with the cationic polymer coating. The required amount of an anionic polymer or surfactant that may be used for the aforementioned anionic pre-treatment of the microparticulate material is such that the anionic surface charge resulting from the pre- treatment is relatively low, wherein the ζ-potential of the microparticulate material in a dilute, approximately 0.1 wt. %, aqueous dispersion is preferably less than about -50 mV, while the conductivity of the dispersion is in the range of about 0.01 to about 0.5 mS/cm.

[0044] Applicable anionic polymers include water-soluble anionic polymers and water- insoluble anionic polymers. By way of non-limiting example, applicable water-soluble anionic polymers include polyphosphate, polysulfonates (e.g., polyvinyl sulfonate, lignosulfonates), polycarboxylates (e.g. sodium polyacrylate), polysulfates (e.g., polyvinyl sulfate), and silicone polymers with a pendant anionic group selected from carboxylate, sulfate, and phosphate groups. One example of a water-insoluble anionic polymer is the copolymer of castor oil phosphate and 3-isocyanato-methyl-3,5,5-trimethyl cyclohexyl isocyanate, referred to herein as castor oil phosphate/IPDI copolymer.

[0045] An important aspect of the microparticulate materials and methods described herein is the coating of the benefit agent-containing microparticulate material with two different cationic polymers. As used herein, coating means the polymer deposits onto the surface of the microparticulate and is not incorporated into the core of the microparticulate. Effectively, coating means the creation of an encapsulating layer of cationic polymer. This is distinct and significantly different from the entanglement or quaterization of a cationic polymer and an anionic polymer forming a particulate, known in the art, therein the particulate is not coated with the cationic polymer but encompasses the cationic polymer. Herein, these polymers are termed Type-1 Polymer and Type-2 Polymer. The Type-1 Polymer can be a homopolymer or a copolymer including an amphiphilic polymer or copolymer, a hydrophobically-modified polymer or copolymer, and the like. The preferred Type-1 cationic polymer is poly(diallyldimethyl ammonium halide), poly(DADMAC). The Type-2 Polymer can be a cationic guar gum, a cationic cellulose, a cationic starch, a hydrophobically-modified thereof, or the like. [0046] Type-1 Polymers are selected from the cationic polymers that have a high cationic charge content. As used herein a high cationic charge content is measured by the cationic atom content. The cationic atom content is a measure of the total atomic weight of the atoms bearing cationic charge in/on the polymer chain divided by the molecular weight of the polymer, times 100, expressed as a weight percentage. By way of descriptive example, all of the cationic nitrogen atoms in the polymer poly(D ADMAC) are quaternary ammonium ions, thereby the cationic atom content (here, the cationic nitrogen content) can be determined either by elemental analysis of a sample of the poly(D ADMAC) or by the weight average molecular weight of the polymer. The elemental analysis would provide the weight percentage of nitrogen atoms in a sample of polymer, that is the cationic atom content. Preferably, a Type-1 Polymer has a cationic atom content in the range of about 3 wt. % to about 20 wt. %. More preferably, a Type-1 Polymer has a cationic atom content in the range of about 5 to about 15 wt. %, and still more preferably this polymer has a cationic atom content in the range of about 8 wt. % to about 10 wt. %. Even more preferably, a Type-1 Polymer has a cationic nitrogen content of at least 3 wt. %. Additionally, Type-1 Polymers, preferably, have a weight average molecular weight in the range of about 300,000 to about 800,000 Dalton, more preferably in the range of about 350,000 to about 600,000 Dalton, and still more preferably in the range of about 400,000 to about 550,000 Dalton.

[0047] The preferred Type-1 Polymer should have a solubility of less than 2 wt. % in a solution of anionic surfactant(s) containing 3 wt. % of an anionic surfactant. More preferably, the solubility of the Type-1 Polymer is less than about 1 wt. %, and even more preferably the solubility is less than about 0.5 wt. % in a 3 wt. % solution of an anionic surfactant, e.g., sodium laurylsulfate.

[0048] The preferred Type-1 Polymer is poly(diallyl dimethyl ammonium chloride), referred to herein as PoIy(DADMAC), that has a cationic nitrogen content of about 8.7 wt. %. Other useful Type-1 Polymers include polyacrylates and polyolefms with pendant quaternary ammonium groups. For example, polymers that meet the above referenced weight average molecular weight, solubility, and cationic nitrogen content and also having the following compositions: polyquaternium 1 (CAS#: 68518-54-7); polyquaternium-2 (CAS#: 63451-27- 1); polyquaternium-4 (copolymer of hydroxyethylcellulose and diallyldimethyl ammonium chloride); polyquaternium-5 (CAS#: 26006-22-4); polyquaternium-6 (polyallyldimethylammonium chloride (CAS#: 26062-79-3); polyquaternium-7 (CAS#: 26590-05-6); polyquaternium-8 (poly((methyl, stearyl) dimethylaminoethyl methacrylate), polyqιtaternium-9 (polydimethylaminoethylmethacrylate bromide); polyquaternium-10 (CAS#s: 53568-66-4, 55353-19-0, 54351-50-7, 81859-24-7; 68610-92-4, 81859-24-7); polyquaternium-1 1 (polyvinyl-N-ethyl-methylpyrrolidonium); poly(ethyldimethylammonium ethylmethacrylate) sulfate copolymer), polyquatemium-12 (CAS#: 68877-50-9); polyquaternium-13 (CAS#: 68877-47-4); polyquatemium-14 (CAS#: 27103-90-8); polyquaternium-15 (CAS#: 35429-19-7); polyquaternium-16 (quaternary ammonium salt of methyl-vinylimidazolium chloride and vinylpyrrolidone) (CAS#: 95144-24-4); polyquaternium-17 (adipic acid - dimethylaminopropylamine polymer (CAS#: 90624-75-2); polyquaternium- 18 (azelaic acid, dimethylaminopropylamine, dicholorethylether polymer, CAS#: 113784-58-0); polyquaternium- 19 (polyvinyl alcohol, 2,3-epoxypropylamine polymer (CAS#: 110736-85-1); polyquaternium-20 (polyvinyl octadecylether, 2,3-epoxypropylamine polymer (CAS#: 110736-86-2); polyquaternium-22 (CAS#: 53694-17-0); polyquatemium-24 (hydroxyethylcellulose, lauryl dimethylammonium epoxide polymer); polyquaternium-27 (copolymer of polyquaternium-2 and polyquaternium- 17, CAS#: 131954-48-4); polyquatemium-28 (vinylpyrrolidone, dimethylaminopropylmethacrylamide copolymer, CAS#: 131954-48-8), polyquatemium-29 (chitosan, CAS#: 9012-76-4); propylene oxide polymer reacted with epichlorohydrin); polyquaternium-30 (methylmethacrylate, methyl(dimethylacetylammonium ethyl)acrylate copolymer, (CAS#: 147398-77-4); polyquaternium-33 (CAS#: 69418-26-4); poly(ethylene(dialkyl)ammonium) polymethacrylamidopropyltrimonium chloride (CAS#: 68039-13-4); and poly(2- acryloyloxyethyl)trimethylammonium) are applicable Type-1 Polymers.

[0049] Type-2 Polymers are the cationic polymers that have a moderate to low cationic charge content. As used herein a moderate to low cationic charge content is measured by the cationic atom content, as defined above. Preferably, a Type-2 Polymer has a cationic atom content less than about 3 wt. %. More preferably, the Type-2 Polymer has a cationic atom content in the range of about 0.01 wt. % to about 3 wt. %, still more preferably in the range of about 0.1 wt. % to about 2 wt. %, and even more preferably in the range of about 0.5 wt. % to about 1 wt. %. Additionally, Type-2 Polymers, preferably, have a weight average molecular weight in the range of about 1,000,000 to about 15,000,000 Dalton, more preferably in the range of about 1,000,000 to about 10,000,000 Dalton, and still more preferably in the range of about 1,000,000 to about 5,000,000 Dalton.

[0050] Some useful Type-2 Polymers are those cationic polymers disclosed in U.S. Pat. No. 7,119,057, incorporated herein by reference, though herein used in significantly lower weight percentages. Preferable Type-2 Polymers include cationic copolymers of acrylamide, and cationic derivatives of natural polymers such as cellulose ether polymers, guar gum, and starch. Preferred Type-2 Polymers are those cationic derivatives of guar, cellulose, and/or starch that satisfy the above defined weight average molecular weight, and cationic weight percentage.

[0051] Another aspect of the cationically-modified benefit agent-containing microparticulate materials, compositions and methods described herein is the relative amounts of the Type-1 Polymer and Type-2 Polymer, in specific weight ratios, that are coated onto the benefit agent-containing microparticulate. Generally, the ratio of the weight of the Type-1 Polymer to the weight of the Type-2 Polymer should be in the range of about 0.1 to about 100. Preferably the weight ratio of the Type-1 Polymer to the Type-2 Polymer should be in the range of about 1 to 20, more preferably in the range of about 2 to about 20, and even more preferably in the range of about 2 to about 10, and most preferably about 3 to about 7. As expressed as weight percentages, the weight percentage of the Type-1 Polymer to the combined weight of the Type-1 and Type-2 polymer is in the range of about 50 to less than 100 wt. %, preferably in the range of about 60 to about 95 wt. %, and more preferably in the range of about 70 to about 90 wt. %. Correspondingly, the weight percentage of the Type-2 Polymer to the combined weight of the Type-1 and Type-2 polymer is in the range of about one to about 50 wt. %, preferably in the range of about 5 to about 40 wt. %, and more preferably in the range of about 10 to about 30 wt. %.

[0052] Yet another aspect of the cationically-modified benefit agent-containing microparticulate materials, compositions and methods described herein is the addition of the Type-1 Polymer and Type-2 Polymer (the cationic polymers) to the microparticulate in a specific weight ratio, irrespective of other materials, water, solvents, or items in the composition. Generally, the ratio of the weight of the cationic polymers to the weight of the microparticulate is in the range of about 0.01 to about 10. Preferably the ratio is in the range of about 0.05 to about 5, more preferably in the range of about 0.1 to about 1, and most preferably about 0.1 to about 0.3.

[0053] Additionally, the Type-1 Polymer and Type-2 Polymer are combined with the microparticulate to form a composition where the weight percentage of the microparticulate in the coated microparticulate composition is in the range of about 1 to about 99.9 wt. %, preferably in the range of about 35 to about 99.5 wt. %, and more preferably in the range of about 50 to about 99.0 wt. %, irrespective of other materials, water, solvents, or items in the composition. In one preferred coated microparticulate composition, the weight percentage of the Type-1 Polymer in the total composition is in the range of about 5 to about 20 wt. % and the weight percentage of the Type-2 Polymer is in the range of about 0.1 to about 5 wt. %, irrespective of other materials, water, solvents, or items in the composition.

[0054] The cationically-modified benefit agent-containing microparticulate materials, compositions and methods described herein can be made by any of a plurality of methods. The first involves the admixing of the Type-1 Polymer with the benefit agent-containing microparticulate followed by the admixing of the product from the addition of the Type-1 Polymer to the microparticulate with the Type-2 Polymer. One embodiment of this method is the surface-modification, surface- treatment, or coating of the microparticulate with the Type-

1 Polymer, then the surface-modification, surface-treatment, or coating with the Type-2 Polymer. It is believed that this method yields a composition having the Type-1 Polymer bound to the surface of the microparticulate and having the Type-2 Polymer bound to the Type-1 Polymer and/or any of the microparticulate 's surface area that is not coated with the Type-1 Polymer. A second method involves the admixing of the Type-1 Polymer with the Type-2 Polymer followed by the admixing of this cationic polymer mixture with the benefit agent-containing microparticulate to coat the benefit agent-containing microparticulate with both cationic polymers simultaneously. It is believed that this method yields a composition having the Type-1 Polymer preferentially bound to the microparticulate surface and the Type-

2 Polymer bound to the Type-1 Polymer, in a layered structure similar to the structure produced from the sequential addition of Type-1 then Type-2 Polymers. The higher concentration, higher cationic atom content, and lower molecular weight of the Type-1 Polymer theoretically allow the Type-1 Polymer to more rapidly (based on relative reaction rates) add to the anionic microparticulate; such that the Type-1 Polymer coats greater than 50% of the microparticulate's surface area, preferably greater than 70%, more preferably greater than 90, and even more preferably greater than 95% of the microparticulate's surface area. A third method involves the admixing of the Type-1 Polymer with the Type-2 Polymer, followed by the admixing of this cationic polymer mixture with the benefit agent-containing microparticulate to coat the benefit agent-containing microparticulate with both cationic polymers simultaneously, followed by the admixing of this coated microparticulate with additional Type-2 Polymer. It is believed that this method yields a composition having an outer coating layer that is greater than 95% Type-2 Polymer, theoretically this method assures that the outer coating layer is 100% Type-2 Polymer. [0055] The surface-modification, surface-treatment, or coating of the micropartieulate material may be carried out by repeatedly adding the micropartieulate material, either in a powder- form (generally, with a moisture content of less than 30% by weight) or as an aqueous dispersion, to an aqueous solution or dispersion containing a cationic polymer, and subsequently shearing the resulting dispersion. Alternatively, the micropartieulate material in a powder- form may be blended with a mixture of a Type-1 Polymer and a Type-2 Polymer, wherein the two cationic polymers are used, respectively, in a form selected from a powder, a solution, a dispersion, and/or mixtures thereof.

[0056] For a micropartieulate material having an anionic surface charge prior to the cationic surface-modification, the surface-modification, surface-treatment, or coating of the benefit agent-containing micropartieulate material with the Type-1 Polymer is preferably carried out by adding the benefit agent-containing micropartieulate material to an aqueous solution/dispersion of the polymer under high-shear agitation. The required amount of the Type-1 Polymer is such that the anionic surface-charge of the micropartieulate material is partially or fully neutralized by the cationic charge of the Type-1 Polymer, inasmuch as the net surface-charge of the modified micropartieulate-surface is cationic, and is sufficiently high for preventing strong coagulation amongst or between the dispersed particles of the micropartieulate material, due to what is known in the art as the electrical double layer repulsion between electrically charged particles in a dispersion.

[0057] For any micropartieulate material having a given anionic surface charge prior to the claimed surface-modification, an optimum dosage (amount added to the micropartieulate material) of the Type-1 cationic polymer may be determined by a two step process. First, by measuring the minimum dosage at which the ζ-potential of the micropartieulate material in a dilute aqueous dispersion (generally about 0.02 to about 0.1 wt. % of the micropartieulate material in water) is greater than about 65 mV, preferably greater than about 70 mV, and more preferably greater than about 75 mV, while the conductivity of the dispersion is in the range of about 0.01 to about 0.5 mS/cm. And second, by measuring the minimum dosage at which the sample does not strongly coagulate in a dilute, 0.1 wt. %, aqueous dispersion as measured by particle size analysis. The optimum dosage is when both steps are satisfied.

[0058] Yet another aspect of the cationically-modified micropartieulate materials, compositions and methods described herein is the incorporation of the cationically-modified benefit agent-containing micropartieulate materials in commercial products. The cationically- modified benefit agent-containing micropartieulate materials can be used in products such as shampoo, liquid soap, bodywash, laundry detergent, fabric softener, toothpaste, and antiseptic ointments. These commercial products that contain cationically-modi fied benefit agent- containing microparticulate materials can further include solvents and/or other ingredients for the coated eationically-modified microparticulates. Examples of solvents and/or added ingredients include fatty alcohols, opacifiers, pearlescers, viscosity modifiers, rheology modifiers, inorganic oxides, buffering or pH adjusting chemicals, foam-boosters, perfumes, dyes, coloring agents or pigments, herb extracts, preservatives, hydrotopes, enzymes, bleaches, fabric conditioners, optical brighteners, antioxidants, stabilizers, thickeners, dispersants, soil release agents, anti-wrinkle agents, polymers, chelants, anti-corrosion agents, teeth cleansing and whitening agents, polymers, coplymers, cross-polymers, smectite clays, silica, silicate minerals, and the like. Generally, these products employ surfactant and emulsifying systems that are well known. For example, fabric softener systems are described in U.S. Pat. Nos. 6,335,315, 5,674,832, 5,759,990, 5,877,145, 5,574,179; 5,562,849, 5,545,350, 5,545,340, 5,411,671, 5,403,499, 5,288,417, 4,767,547, 4,424,134, each hereby incorporated by reference.

The alkyl groups generally contain from 8 to 18 carbon atoms and may be unsaturated. The alkyl ether sulfates, alkyl ether phosphates, and alkyl ether carboxylates may contain from 1 to 10 ethylene oxide or propylene oxide units per molecule, and preferably contain 2 to 3 ethylene oxide units per molecule. Non-limiting examples of nonionic surfactants that can be combined with the herein described mieroparticulate composition include, but are not limited to, aliphatic, primary or secondary linear or branched chain alcohols or phenols with alkylene oxides, generally ethylene oxide and generally 6-30 ethylene oxide groups.

Generally, the surfactant is combined with the mieroparticulate composition in a range from about 1 to about 95%, preferably from about 2 to about 90%, and most preferably from 3 to 90% by weight of the total compositions.

[0060] Alternatively the mieroparticulate composition can be formed into a commercial product by admixing the mieroparticulate composition with a hydrophilic solvent. Suitable hydrophilic solvents include water, glycerol, ethanol, isopropanol, propylene glycol, butylene glycol, hexylene glycol, polyethylene glycol and mixtures thereof. Generally, the solvent is combined with the mieroparticulate composition in a range from about 0.1 to about 95%, preferably from 1 to 90%, and most preferably from 3 to 90% by weight of the total compositions.

EXAMPLES

[0061] The following examples will more fully illustrate the preferred embodiments within the scope of the present invention. These examples are solely for the purpose of illustration and are not to be construed as limitations of the present invention as many variations thereof are possible without departing from the purview and spirit of the compositions and methods described herein. As used in the examples, given polymer weight percentages in tables 1-6 correspond to the relative weight percentage of the polymer to the microparticulate, irrespective of other possibly materials, water, solvents, or items in the compositions.

[0062] The cationic surface-treatment of the microparticulate material may be carried out by adding the microparticulate material, either in a powder-form (with a moisture content of less than 30% by weight) or as an aqueous dispersion, to an aqueous solution or dispersion containing the Type-1 Polymer and then adding the Type-1 coated microparticulate material to a solution or dispersion containing the Type-2 Polymer, and respectively shearing the resulting dispersions. Alternatively, the microparticulate material in a powder-form may be blended with a mixture of a Type-1 Polymer and a Type-2 Polymer, wherein the two polymers are used, respectively, in a form selected from a powder, a solution or a dispersion, and mixtures thereof.

[0063] For a microparticulate material having an anionic surface charge prior to the claimed surface-modification, the adsorption of the Type-1 Polymer onto the surface of the microparticulate material (coating step) is preferably carried out by adding the microparticulate material to an aqueous solution/dispersion of the polymer under high-shear agitation.

[0064] The general procedure for the preparation of the cationically surface-treated microparticulates can be understood through the herein disclosed representative examples. Table 1 provides the general formulations, as weight percents of the entire composition, of a number of prepared samples. These samples can be prepared through the adaptation of the representative examples through augmentation of the amounts of reagents added. Example 3 was prepared as follows: 60 g of a poly(DADMAC) solution (Zetag 7122, also called Magnafloc LT-7992, available from Ciba Specialty Chemicals, with 20% active) and 60 g of deionized water were added to a suitable flask. The batch was mixed for 6 minutes at a mixing speed of 200 rpm using a caframo mixer fitted with a dispersion blade agitator. After increasing the speed to 1,000 rpm, 300 g of an aqueous dispersion of an encapsulated fragrance (BL-AWAY-478A from International Flavors & Fragrances, Inc. (IFF, Inc.) New York, NY, with 40% encapsulated solids, including a fragrance) was added to the batch. The mixing speed was increased to at least 1,500 rpm, once about half of the dispersion-amount was added to the batch. Then a 1 g aliquot of a 50% (w/w) solution of sodium hydroxide was added to the batch within one minute after the completion of addition of the above dispersion, while the batch remained under agitation at a mixing speed of 1,500 rpm. The batch was mixed for 30 minutes at 1,500 rpm, counted from the time of completion of addition of the foregoing dispersion. The above dosage of the poly(D ADMAC) solution corresponds to 10% poly(DADMAC), based on the weight of encapsulated solids, including a fragrance.

[0065] Table 1 shows examples of compositions of microparticulates coated with Type-1 Polymer, specifically poly(D ADMAC) as prepared in the above described example 3. These samples became the starting materials for those samples shown in Table 2.

[0067] Example 7 was prepared as follows: to 124 g of the resulting dispersion from Example 3 was added 26 g of a 2.5% (w/w) solution of a cationic guar (Jaguar C-14S from Rhodia), Type-2 Polymer, in a suitable vessel. The resulting mixture was mixed at a mixing speed of 1,000 rpm for 2.5 minutes, using a caframo mixer fitted with a dispersion blade agitator. The mixing speed was then increased to 1 ,500 rpm, and the batch was mixed for an additional 27.5 minutes. The amount of Type-1 Polymer and Type-2 Polymer correspond to 10 wt. % and 1.8 wt. %, respectively, based on the weight of encapsulated solids, including a fragrance.

[0068] Table 2 shows examples of microparticulate compositions corresponding to the present disclosure. The samples were prepared from the samples shown in Table 1 as described in the procedure for Example 7, above. For the purpose of these examples three Type-2 Polymers were employed. These are Jaguar C-17 (INCI Name: Guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride; CAS: 65497-29-2) available from Rhodia Inc. Cranberry NJ; Jaguar C-14S (INCI Name: Guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride; CAS: 65497-29-2) available from Rhodia Inc.; and Soft-Cat SL-30 (INCI Name: Polyquaternium-67) available from Dow Chemical Co., Midland, MI.
