  • Publication number: 20140027403
    Abstract: A vent valve, and a vent valve assembly, for a liquid dispensing container, employ a vent disc having small open vent holes in cooperation with an overlying thin flexible flap that covers and closes the vent holes to limit liquid pressure on the holes when the container is upright, yet require little suction pressure to move the flap to draw liquid or vent through the holes. The vent valve can be used in a bottom cap that is attachable to the bottom open end of the container. The vent valve assembly includes such a bottom cap, a sealing member for sealing the bottom cap to the container, and a vent valve. The vent valve and/or bottom cap have an elevated vent disc and a top portion having the thin flexible flap.

  • Publication number: 20130309182
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a composition that maintains a high and desirable viscosity while having a high amount of alcohol. Suitable thickeners and gelling agents are mixed with the alcohol to achieve this effect. An emulsion stabilizer can also be added. These components can also be combined with a sunscreen. The resulting composition provides benefits such as cooling and desirable skin feel, but is still easily spreadable and viscous enough to function effectively as a sunscreen.

  • Patent number: 8556845
    Abstract: There is provided a multiple-component tampon applicator formed from at least three separate components. A fingergrip having a reduced cross-section as compared to that of the barrel may be formed such that it is a separate component or is integrally formed with a barrel component. The reduced cross-section fingergrip provides exceptional grippability to the user. The multiple components may be formed from materials including, for example, biopolymer including starches and proteins, cardboard, heat shrink plastic, paper slurry, plastic, plastic tubing, pulp slurry, pulp-molded paper, or any combinations thereof. Prior to assembly of the applicator and prior to loading the barrel component with an absorbent pledget, petals may be formed on the insertion end of the barrel using existing processes and equipment. Alternatively, a separate insertion tip component having petals may be formed.

  • Patent number: 8512683
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to an emulsion base for formulating cosmetic and dermatological compositions. The emulsion base has particular surfactant and/or emulsifier ratios such that a wide range of compositions with varying forms and additional components can be formulated without changing the ratio or amount of the primary and/or co-surfactant/emulsifier in the emulsion base or the amount of the emulsion base in the final composition. The emulsion base can be used in a system of formulating cosmetic and dermatological compositions.

  • Publication number: 20130018347
    Abstract: The present invention provides a tampon pledget with one or more of the following properties: increased absorbency rate; high absorbent capacity and fluid retention; rapid expansion potential; and ease of ejection of the pledget from the applicator. Surprisingly, the one or more properties are achieved by using a modified dual cross-pad, folded, compressed tampon pledget design.
