A monohydric alcohol-free, transparent, moisturizing bar soap having a high humectant solvent content. The formulation includes: (i) from about 38% to about 96% of one or more humectant solvents and (ii) from about 3% to about 20% of insoluble and/or soluble fatty acid soaps, with at least about 3% insoluble fatty acid soap. The weight ratio of humectant solvent to insoluble fatty acid soap ranges from about 3:1 to about 23:1. The bar soap has a standardized wear rate of less than about 15% and a hardness of from about 30 to about 100 hardness units. The transparent solid bar soap may be manufactured by a 'hot pour' process with conventional batch mixing equipment designed for relatively moderate temperatures; accordingly, the bar soap may be packaged for final consumer use in the mold in which it was formed.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
