HINDUSTAN LEVER LIMITED, a company incorporated under the Indian Companies Act, 1913 and having its registered office at Hindustan Lever House, 165/166, Backbay Reclamation, Mumbai -400 020, Maharashtra, India
The following specification particularly describes the nature of the invention and the manner in which it is to be performed.



Technical Filed:
The present invention relates to a synergistic skin composition comprising a skin lightening active. In particular, the invention relates to synergistic skin compositions comprising vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) and its functional and structural analogues (e.g. hydroxocobalamin) as skin lightening actives. The invention also pertains to synergistic skin compositions comprising vitamin B12 and skin lightening actives/sunscreens. The compositions of the invention are suitable for controlling skin colour.
Background and Prior art:
The endogenous pigment of skin and hair is called melanin. In all pigmented animals there are two basic types of melanin; the brown/red type, or pheomelanin, and the black type, or eumelanin.
Melanin is synthesized in melanosomes from the amino acid tyrosine via DOPA and dopaquinone. The enzyme tyrosinase is required in these early steps. After the tyrosinase steps, the pathways to produce black, brown and red pigments diverge, and involve many other enzymes.
The melanogenesis process also involves the development of melanosomes, the organelle of the melanocyte in which the melanin is synthesised, and the subsequent transfer of the melanosomes to keratinocytes.
Skin colour is dependent on the amount and type of melanin, and the size and distribution patterns of melanosomes within keratinocytes.
External agents are known to alter skin colour. Agents that lighten or whiten skin colour are reported in the prior art, and are used extensively in cosmetic formulations. These include niacinamide, carboxylic acids like azelaic acid and kojic acid, plant extracts and hydroquinone etc.

Vitamin B3 (nicotinic acid or its amide) is one of the most effective and safe skin-lightening agents. Other vitamins like Vitamin C or its derivatives, and Vitamin B6 are also known to effect skin lightening.
Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) stimulates the generation of tyrosinase, and thus pigmentation. Organic sunscreens are molecules that absorb in the UV region, and thus prevent the action of UVR. Sunscreens can therefore help in controlling skin colour.
EP0396422 (Unilever) discloses a skin lightening composition, comprising niacinamide, Parsol MCX and Parsol 1789, UV-B and UV-A sunscreens, as well as silicone oil in the skin lightening composition. The composition gives enhanced skin lightening.
US20020006418 (John Kung, Jue-Chen Liu, Susan Niemiec) discloses skin compositions comprising a polymeric emulsifier and a sugar that enhance the penetration of topical benefit agents into the skin. Cosmetic benefit agents that can be effectively delivered by the composition include vitamin B6 and B12. WO0191715 (PentaPharm Ltd., Ezaki Glico Co. Ltd.) teaches skin lightening compositions comprising 4-Hydroxyphenyl- a-D-glucopyranoside combined with other active ingredients, including pyridoxine or Vitamin B6.
JP04009325 (SunStar Inc.) and JP60188306 (Shiseido Co. Ltd.) also disclose skin whitening compositions comprising pyridoxine.
The Journal of Dermatology, Vol28: 282-285, 2001 (Katsunori Mori, Iwao Ando and Atsushi Kukita) addresses generalised acquired hyper-pigmentation due to vitamin B12 deficiency. A 49 year old patient with symptoms of hyper-pigmentation due to mal-absorption of vitamin B12 resulting from a gastrectomy was treated with vitamin B12 supplements to reduce the hyper-pigmentation.

US-A-2002/0035087 (Barclay) described the use of vitamin B12, plus optionally other vitamins such as vitamin B3 for the reduction of UV damage to cells.
Thus, the prior art is generally directed towards treatment of conditions like hyper-pigmentation with vitamin B12. Further, skin compositions comprising vitamin B12 as disclosed in the prior art do not teach that topical application of vitamin B12 can promote skin lightening.
The present applicants have now surprisingly found that skin compositions comprising vitamin B12 can lighten the skin significantly, and in combination with a benefit agent selected from other skin lightening vitamins and sunscreens shows enhanced and synergistic skin lightening. The topical compositions are useful both for normal skin as well as skin damaged by UVR. The compositions are also useful in treating freckles, hyper-pigmented skin, blotchy skin, age spots etc.
Description Of the Invention:
Thus, according to the first aspect of the invention, there is provided a synergistic skin lightening composition comprising:
a. an effective amount of vitamin B12 or derivative thereof
b. a cosmetically acceptable vehicle or 15-85% detergent active
According to a preferred aspect of the invention, there is provided a skin lightening composition comprising:
a. 0.05-5% by weight of vitamin B12 or a derivative thereof

b. a skin lightening vitamin chosen from niacinamide, pyridoxine or their
precursors thereof
c. optionally a sunscreen and/or a sun-block
d. a cosmetically acceptable vehicle or 15-85% detergent active.
According to a further preferred aspect of the invention, there is provided a skin lightening composition comprising
a. 0.1 to 1 % by weight vitamin B12 or a derivative thereof
b. 0.1% to 10% by weight of a skin lightening vitamin chosen from niacinamide,
pyridoxine or their precursors thereof
c. 0.1 to 10 % sunscreen
d. a cosmetically acceptable vehicle or 15-85% soap.
All parts herein are by weight unless otherwise specified.
The present invention pertains to synergistic skin lightening compositions comprising vitamin B12 and a benefit agent chosen from other skin lightening vitamins and sunscreens or their mixtures thereof. The compositions according to the invention give enhanced skin lightening.
The compositions of the invention can be leave on products in the form of lotions, creams, gels, mousses etc. or in the form of rinse off products like soap bar, detergent powders, flakes, face wash, body wash etc.
It is an essential feature of the invention that Vitamin B12 or its derivative thereof be present in the skin lightening composition of the invention. Vitamin B12 is exclusively synthesised by bacteria and naturally found in animal foods including fish, milk and milk products, eggs, meat, and poultry. Fermented soya products,

seaweeds, and algae such as spirulina have all been suggested as containing significant B12. However, the present consensus is that any B12 present in plant foods is likely to be unavailable to humans, and so these foods should not be relied upon as safe sources.
Spirulina, an algae available as a dietary supplement in tablet form, and nori, a seaweed, have both appeared to contain significant amounts of B12 after analysis. However, it is thought that this is due to the presence of compounds structurally similar to B12, known as B12 analogues. These cannot be utilised to satisfy dietary needs. Researchers have suggested that supposed B12 supplements such as spirulina may in fact increase the risk of B12 deficiency disease, as the B12 analogues can compete with B12 and inhibit metabolism. It is thus possible to choose B12 available from any known source that may be natural or synthetic commercially available source.
Vitamin B12 is typically incorporated at 0.05% to 5 % by weight of the composition, and is preferably present in an amount from 0.1 % to 1 % by weight of the cosmetic composition.
Other skin lightening vitamins can be advantageously included in the composition to provide for synergistic skin lightening effects. These include vitamin B3, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin A or their precursors. Mixtures of the vitamins can also be employed in the composition of the invention. Especially preferred vitamins are vitamin B3 and vitamin B6.
When a mixture of vitamins is used, it is preferred that the total amount of vitamins does not exceed 10 % by weight of the cosmetic composition.
The composition of the invention preferably includes an effective amount of a sunscreen or sun-block agent to enhance synergistically the benefit of the

composition in providing for skin lightening. Organic and inorganic sunscreens/sun-blocks may be suitably employed in the composition.
Ultraviolet light is a predominant cause of skin darkening. Thus, for purposes of skin lightening, compositions comprising UVA and/or UVB sunscreen are desirable.
A wide variety of conventional sunscreen agents are suitable for use in combination with Vitamin B12 and/or other skin lightening vitamins. Suitable sunscreen agents include, p-aminobenzoic acid, its salts and its derivatives (ethyl, isobutyl, glyceryl esters; p-dimethylaminobenzoic acid); anthranilates (i.e., o-aminobenzoates; methyl, menthyl, phenyl, benzyl, phenylethyl, linalyl, terpinyl, and cyclohexenyl esters); salicylates (amyl, phenyl, benzyl, menthyl, glyceryl, and dipropyleneglycol esters); Cinnamic acid derivatives (menthyl and benzyl esters, a-phenyl cinnamonitrile; butyl cinnamoyl pyruvate); dihydroxycinnamic acid derivatives (umbelliferone, methylumbelliferone, methylaceto-umbelliferone); trihydroxycinnamic acid derivatives (esculetin, methylesculetin, daphnetin, and the glucosides, esculin and daphnin); hydrocarbons (diphenylbutadiene, stilbene); dibenzalacetone and benzalacetophenone; naphthol-sulfonates (sodium salts of 2-naphthol-3,6- disulfonic and of 2-naphthol-6,8-disulfonic acids); di-hydroxy-naphthoic acid and its salts; o- and p-Hydroxybiphenyldisulfonates; coumarin derivatives (7-hydroxy, 7-methyl, 3-phenyl); diazoles (2-acetyl-3- bromoindazole, phenyl benzoxazole, methyl naphthoxazole, various aryl benzothiazoles); quinine salts (bisulfate, sulfate, chloride, oleate, and tannate); quinoline derivatives (8-hydroxyquinoline salts, 2- phenylquinoline); hydroxy- or methoxy-substituted benzophenones; uric and vilouric acids; tannic acid and its derivatives (e.g., hexaethylether); (butyl carbotol) (6-propyl piperonyl) ether; hydroquinone; benzophenones (oxy-benzene, sulisobenzone, dioxybenzone, benzoresorcinol, 2,2',4,4'- tetrahydroxybenzophenone, 2,2'-dihydroxy-4,4'-dimethylbenzophenone, octabenzone; 4-isopropyldibenzoylmethane; butyl-methoxydibenzoylmethane; etocrylene; and 4-isopropyl-di-benzoylmethane.

Of these, 2-ethylhexyl-p-methoxycinnamate, 4,4'-t-butyl methoxydibenzoyl-
methane, 2-hydroxy-4-methoxybenzophenone, octyldimethyl- p-aminobenzoic
acid, digalloyltrioleate, 2,2-dihydroxy-4- methoxybenzophenone, ethyl-4-
(bis(hydroxypropyl)) aminobenzoate, 2- ethylhexyl-2-cyano-3,3-diphenylacrylate,

trimethylcyclohexylsalicylate, methylanthranilate, p-dimethyl-aminobenzoic acid or
aminobenzoate, 2-etflylhexyl-p-dimethyl- amino-benzoate, 2-
phenylbenzimidazole-5-sulfonic acid, and 2-(p- dimethylaminophenyl)-5-sulfonicbenzoxazoic acid, and mixtures of these compounds are preferred.
More preferred sunscreens useful in the compositions useful in the subject invention are 2-ethylhexyl-p-methoxycinnamate, butylmethoxydibenzoylmethane, 2-hydroxy-4-methoxybenzophenone, octyldimethyl-p-aminobenzoic acid and mixtures thereof.
Also particularly useful in the compositions are sunscreens such as those disclosed in U.S. Pat. No. 4,937,370 issued to Sabatelli on Jun. 26, 1990, and U.S. Pat. No. 4,999,186 issued to Sabatelli & Spirnak on Mar. 12, 1991, both of which are incorporated herein by reference. The sunscreen agents disclosed therein have, in a single molecule, two distinct chromophore moieties which exhibit different ultra-violet radiation absorption spectra. One of the chromophore moieties absorbs predominantly in the UVB radiation range and the other absorbs strongly in the UVA radiation range.
A safe and effective amount of sunscreen may be used in the compositions useful in the subject invention. The composition preferably comprises from about 0.1% to about 10%, more preferably from about 0.1% to about 5%, of a sunscreen agent.

Useful inorganic sun-sreens include, for example, zinc oxide iron oxide, silica, such as fumed silica, and titanium dioxide.
Ultrafine titanium dioxide in either of its two forms, namely water-dispersible titanium dioxide and oil- dispersible titanium dioxide, are especially suitable for use according to the invention. Water-dispersible titanium dioxide is ultra-fine titanium dioxide, the particles of which are non-coated or which are coated with a material to impart a hydrophilic surface property to the particles. Examples of such materials include aluminium oxide and aluminium silicate.
Oil-dispersible titanium dioxide is ultrafine titanium dioxide, the particles of which exhibit a hydrophobic surface property, and which, for this purpose, can be coated with metal soaps such as aluminium stearate, aluminium laurate or zinc stearate, or with organosilicone compounds.
By "ultrafine titanium dioxide" is meant particles of titanium dioxide having an average particle size of less than 100 nm, preferably 70 nm or less, more preferably from 10 to 40 nm and most preferably from 15 to 25 nm.
By topical application to the skin of a mixture of both water-dispersible ultra-fine titanium dioxide and oil-dispersible ultrafine titanium dioxide, synergistically enhanced protection of the skin against the harmful effects of both UV-A and UV-B rays is achievable.
The total amount of sun screen that is preferably incorporated in the composition according to the invention is from 0.1 to 5% by weight of the composition.
The composition according to the invention also preferably comprises a cosmetically acceptable vehicle to act as a diluant, dispersant or carrier for other

materials present in the composition, so as to facilitate their distribution when the composition is applied to the skin.
Vehicles other than water can include liquid or solid emollients, solvents, humectants, thickeners and powders. Examples of each of these types of vehicle, which can be used singly or as mixtures of one or more vehicles, are as follows:

It is also possible to provide for the skin lightening composition of the invention is the form of a personal wash formulation, for example in the form of a soap bar, additionally including for example soap and fatty matter.

The term total fatty matter, usually abbreviated to TFM is used to denote the percentage by weight of fatty acid and triglyceride residues present, without taking into account the accompanying cations.
For soap having 18 carbon atoms, an accompanying sodium cation will generally amount to about 8% by weight. Other cations may be employed as desired for example zinc, potassium, magnesium, alkyl ammonium and aluminium.
The term soap denotes salts of carboxylic fatty acids. The soap may be derived from any of the triglycerides conventionally used in soap manufacture -consequently the carboxylate anions in the soap may contain from 8 to 22 carbon atoms.
The soap may be obtained by saponifying a fat and/or a fatty acid. The fats or oils generally used in soap manufacture may be such as tallow, tallow stearines, palm oil, palm stearines, soya bean oil, fish oil, caster oil, rice bran oil, sunflower oil, coconut oil, babassu oil, palm kernel oil, and others. In the above process the fatty acids are derived from oils/fats selected from coconut, rice bran, groundnut, tallow, palm, palm kernel, cotton seed, soya bean, castor etc. The fatty acid soaps can also be synthetically prepared (e.g. by the oxidation of petroleum or by the hydrogenation of carbon monoxide by the Fischer-Tropsch process). Resin acids, such as those present in tall oil, may be used. Naphthenic acids are also suitable.
Tallow fatty acids can be derived from various animal sources and generally comprise about 1-8% myristic acid, about 21-32% palmitic acid, about 14-31% stearic acid, about 0-4% palmitoleic acid, about 36-50% oleic acid and about 0-5% linoleic acid. A typical distribution is 2.5% myristic acid, 29% palmitic acid, 23% stearic acid, 2% palmitoleic acid, 41.5% oleic acid, and 3% linoleic acid. Other similar mixtures, such as those from palm oil and those derived from various animal tallow and lard are also included.

Coconut oil refers to fatty acid mixtures having an approximate carbon chain length distribution of I oleic
and 2% linoleic acids (the first six fatty acids listed being saturated). Other sources having similar carbon chain length distributions, such as palm kernel oil and babassu kernel oil, are included within the term coconut oil.
Other detergent actives like synthetic anionic surfactants, cationic surfactants, amphoteric surfactants, zwitterionic surfactants or their mixtures thereof may also be present in the composition. Such actives are disclosed in standard detergent textbooks for example "Surface Active Agents", Volume I by Schwartz and Perry and "Surface Active Agents and Detergents", Volume II by Schwartz, Perry and Berch.
The compositions of the present invention can comprise a wide range of other optional cosmetic components. The CTFA Cosmetic Ingredient Handbook, Second Edition, 1992, which is incorporated by reference herein in its entirety, describes a wide variety of non-limiting cosmetic and pharmaceutical ingredients commonly used in the skin care industry, which are suitable for use in the compositions of the present invention. Examples include: antioxidants, binders, biological additives, buffering agents, colorants, thickeners, polymers, astringents, fragrance, humectants, opacifying agents, pH adjusters, preservatives, natural extracts, essential oils, skin sensates, skin soothing agents, and skin healing agents.
The invention is now further described by way of the following non-limiting examples.

i. Effect of different concentrations of Vitamin B12 on melanin content.
Experiments were carried out with B16 melanoma cells (commonly used for studying pigmentation), wherein the cells were treated with vitamin B12 (B12) at various concentrations (0.1, 0.5, 1, 2 and 5mM). The equivalent amounts as % by weight are indicated in parentheses below. The cells were then stained with silver nitrate by Fontana Masson method for visualisation of melanin. The cells treated with B12 were lighter than untreated controls, and a dose related decrease in colour was seen (Figure 1).
In Figure 1, the legends refer to different treatments of B12 at various concentrations.
A - Control (No B12 was added) B-B120.1mM (0.013%) C-B121mM(0.13%) D-B12 2mM(0.25%) E-B12 5mM(0.65%)
ii. Effect of B12 on skin lightening.
Each of the forearms (area from wrist to elbow) 8-10 sites were identified for treatment. The distribution of products over the various sites was randomized. The initial skin colour reading on each site served as the untreated control. The details of the skin composition are presented in Table 1.
On the first day of the study (Day 1), subjects who qualified were marked to identify the test sites and evaluated clinically and read on the Minolta

chromameter CM 2500D. Study personnel applied 3 mg of the products to the test sites five times daily for 10 days. On 11th day, the subjects will be clinically evaluated and skin measurements with the CM 2500D will be done.
