Abstract: An antiperspirant composition of the suspension type comprising an anhydrous alcoholic vehicle having suspended therein one or more of the following astringent salt glycine complexes and a suspending agent: aluminum/zirconium/tetrachlorohydrate glycine complexes; aluminum/zirconium/trichlorohydrate glycine complexes; aluminum/zirconium/pentachlorohydrate glycine complexes; aluminum/zirconium/octachlorohydrate glycine complexes; and aluminum/sesquichlorohydrate glycine complexes. Composition may also contain a non-staining hydrophilic emollient and/or a non-polar emollient and/or a volatile emollient.
Abstract: Long chain aliphatic hydrocarbon ethoxylated alcohol benzoates having a small degree of ethoxylation and believed to be of the general formula: ##STR1## in which: (a) R is a long chain aliphatic hydrocarbon radical having from about 8 to about 18 carbon atoms and n is a number no greater than about 5.These are useful as vehicles in pharmaceutical, cosmetic or toiletry preparations.
Abstract: A display carton formed from a single blank of paperboard or the like having an outer carton structure and an inner product compartment. The outer carton structure has spaced outer front and rear walls separated from each other by a pair of outer carton side walls and said inner compartment comprises a pair of inner side wall panels and a rear panel. The inner compartment is secured to said outer carbon structure so that rear inner compartment panel is not secured to said rear outer carton wall and the inner compartment side panels are not secured to said outer carton side walls so that when the carton is squared and erected said inner compartment may be erected independently of the squaring of said outer carton by snapping said inner compartment into its erected position. A self-centering beam is also provided to insure the automatic centering of the inner compartment.
Abstract: A reversible child resistant closure having a child resistant and a non-child resistant mode of use. The closure is characterized by its low profile and tab that extends outwardly from the closure; this tab being engageable from below when closure is rotated into the appropriate position on the container. An upwardly extending relatively low annular rib is provided on the roof of the closure which serves as the means by which the closure is engaged by the container neck when the closure is inserted into the container neck in its non-child resistant mode.
Abstract: An analgesic and sleep-aid composition containing an analgesic (e.g. aspirin, APAP or combinations thereof) and diphenhydramine dihydrogencitrate. Discloses several dosage forms including a two layer tablet in which aspirin is contained in one layer and APAP contained in the other layer; the preferred form being such that the diphenhydramine dihydrogencitrate is contained in the APAP layer.
Abstract: A method and apparatus for assembling hollow balls from molded hemispheres which are fed to the apparatus. The hemispheres fed to the apparatus are received in a plurality of slots located about the circumference of a wheel. While the hemispheres are in the slots, an applicator disc applies a solvent to the hemispheres and pressure cams force the hemispheres together, thereby forming complete balls. The balls are then discharged from the apparatus.The same apparatus may be used to assemble hollow balls from hemispheres which are adapted to be snapped together. In that case, no solvent is applied by the applicator disc and the pressure applied by the pressure cams is used to snap the hemispheres together into hollow balls.
Abstract: A composition and treatment to prevent the symptoms of skin conditions characterized by an offensive odor of the body, such as diaper rash, perspiration odor and athlete's foot. The composition contains as the active ingredient a non-toxic, high molecular weight organic polymeric acid which is not absorbed through the skin. Treatment is by topical application of a dusting powder, aerosol spray, cream or ointment containing 1 to 30% by weight of a high molecular weight organic polymeric acid such as alignic acids, Carbopol resins or other polymeric acids.

Abstract: A variable shelf organizer adapted to being assembled to provide shelf organizers of various sizes. The elements are constructed so that portions of them may be broken away to adjust both the length and the width and so that the parts interlock to give product troughs of various widths.
Abstract: A roll-on dispenser having an applicator ball, which dispenser is provided with a porous membrane that coacts with the ball to regulate the dispension of controlled amounts of powders. The amounts of material dispensed is dependent upon the porosity of the membrane and the porosity of the membrane is dependent upon the degree of its deformation by the ball upon operation of the dispenser.
Abstract: A capsule product preferably containing a high dosage of aspirin in powder or granulated form and at least one akaline tablet or pellet; the improvement in which said alkaline tablet or pellet comprises magnesium carbonate, calcium carbonate and a magnesium oxy component such as magnesium oxide, magnesium hydroxide or the combination of magnesium oxide and magnesium hydroxide. The alkaline tablet is preferably dimensioned so that it will contain a maximum amount of material in a minimum volume e.g. a spheroid so that it can be readily dropped into a gelatin capsule e.g. #0 gelatin capsule.
Abstract: A bran tablet unit dosage form composition employing comminuted bran useful as a bulk cathartic agent is provided. The bran tablet compositions have suitable characteristics with respect to handling and packaging procedures and are substantially more palatable than whole bran.

Abstract: A child resistant dispensing package for tablets and the like of the dial type provided with a dispenser opening in the upper section; the lower section is provided with a plurality of flexible tablet pockets that are covered over with a sheet of rupturable material (e.g. aluminum foil); the upper and lower sections are provided with location indicators to line the tablet pockets up with the dispenser opening; tablets are dispensed by pushing the tablet pockets with enough force to rupture the sheet material.
Abstract: There is disclosed a capsule containing aspirin and alternatively other active analgesic materials in combination with an alkaline material. The composition is made stable by providing the alkaline material in a tablet form.
Abstract: A child resistant package is provided which comprises a container body and removable cap. The cap is only removable by applying pressure to the underside of the cap. Access to the underside of the cap is had through a channel which is longer than the length of the finger of an average child but not longer than the length of the finger of an adult.
