Procter & Gamble Secures Patent For New Skincare Technology

January 8, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble received a patent for a topical cosmetic composition that contains a prebiotic agent the company claims improves the skin’s “condition and appearance” and the skin microbiome. Filed more than two years ago, the patent is valid worldwide as per the World Intellectual Property Organization’s approval. According to the patent file, the inventors developed a method for improving the condition and appearance of the skin by topically applying a cosmetic composition to the skin. Suitable for use as a topical skincare product or color cosmetic products, the cosmetic composition includes a dermatologically acceptable carrier and a galactooligosaccharide.
