In 2010, the US Patent and Trademark Office awarded a patent for the first use of silica, a chemical found in the hair of animals and plants.
Silica is also found in shampoo, and is used in many cosmetics, including conditioners, shampoo, shampoo foam, deodorants and hair deodorant.
The new patent, which covers hair products and products containing silica as an ingredient, is described in the patent filing as a “sealable sealant.”
“Silica is widely used in cosmetics, and it can be used in hair care products as a sealant,” the patent reads.
“Silica has been shown to be a strong antioxidant that can reduce free radicals that contribute to hair loss, hair discoloration and other adverse effects of aging.”
In the patent application, the company writes that silica is “used in shampoo and conditioners and hair products as an antioxidant, protecting the hair from free radicals.”
The patent application also describes the process by which silica can be added to a hair product: “To create a seal, silica salt is added to the hair and then the hair is rubbed with the silica sealant for a few minutes.
Then the hair sealant is removed from the hair, washed with shampoo and the hair conditioner is allowed to dry for a short period of time before the sealant can be applied.”
Silica’s patent application notes that “some of the chemicals in hair conditioners may contain silica and silica salts,” so it’s important to look for the ingredients listed in the ingredient list on your shampoo and other hair care product.
“There may be silica compounds added to shampoo and scalp conditioners that are not listed in this patent,” says the patent.
As you can see, the patent doesn’t spell out how the ingredients should be packaged.
Instead, the document provides a list of the ingredients, and the ingredients’ respective ingredients list, for each product.
There’s also a list on the side for shampoo.
Silica and other ingredients in shampoo aren’t new to science.
Silicones, the natural chemical components in the shampoo, have been found in other cosmetic products.
But the patent document says that the silicones in the new patent are the first to use the term “silica” as a descriptor for silica.
The patent, however, also notes that the term silica was used before shampoo was invented in the 19th century.
“Silicones were first used as a name for silicate minerals, but the term ‘silica’ has been used in other applications, such as shampoo and hair condition.
The use of the term has been more widespread since the beginning of the 20th century,” the document reads.”
Many of the natural ingredients in hair products are derived from silica minerals, including silica from the scalp, silicofluorinated silica (FLS) from hair and hair-softening silica derived from hair.
The silica mineral content in hair hair conditionings is also significantly higher than in shampoo,” the application continues.
According to the patent, silicate mineral salts “are naturally occurring silicates that are present in the environment and are used as building blocks for the synthesis of silicines.”
The chemical compound silica “is the most abundant element in the Earth’s crust, and silicosis is a process whereby silicate rock formations become more porous and eventually melt, forming silicoses.”
Silicoses have long been used as natural sealants, but today silicose salt is generally found in natural cosmetics, such in shampoo.
Silicate salts are typically used in the form of silicate salt water, which is the product that shampoo comes in.
Silicose salts are sometimes added to natural hair care formulations, and are commonly found in hair creams and conditioner.
The ingredient description for silicosed salt adds that it “is a very stable silicate compound that has a high molecular weight, has a good resistance to heat and light, and can be a good solvent.”
It also notes in the description that silicosate is “a very effective solvent and a good carrier for silicating solutions.”
