  • Patent number: 8292532
    Abstract: A propelling container with an inner cylinder, a dispenser head, an inner plate, an annular sealing member, a rotator and a lid body. The rotator has a bottom wall part connected to a lower end of the connecting rod, and a circumferential wall part extending from a periphery of the bottom wall part along an outer face of the inner cylinder and surrounding the inner cylinder, thereby rotatably held by the inner cylinder. The rotator is provided with an elastic body repeatedly contacted with and moved away from a projection of the inner cylinder upon rotation of the rotator to generate a click feeling. A stopper is arranged on a base part of the screw rod and associated with a lower part of the inner plate when the inner plate is positioned at the lowest end of the content filling space, so that rotation of the rotator is prevented.

  • Patent number: 7891896
    Abstract: A stick cosmetic advancing container has a stick type cosmetic, an interior plate, a tubular sleeve having an application opening at its tip portion from which the stick type cosmetic is advanced, and a moving mechanism for moving the interior plate within the sleeve. A user holds the stick cosmetic advancing container to apply the stick type cosmetic. The sleeve is arranged to have a uniform internal cross-sectional shape throughout the moving range of the stick type cosmetic. Further, the surface of the application opening is inclined at an angle of ?1 with respect to the central axis A of the sleeve. Also, an outer side wall thickness W1 of an outer side wall portion 18 is arranged to be less than an inner side wall thickness W2 of an inner side wall portion 19.

  • Patent number: 7878728
    Abstract: A viscous cosmetic product that realizes smooth application thereof to application target areas and that prevents liquid dripping thereof onto a surface of a viscous cosmetic substance container and is free from stickiness at use thereof, enabling clean use thereof. A viscous cosmetic substance containing 1.0 to 10.0 wt % of silicic anhydride is accommodated in a tubular accommodation part. A front edge wall of the accommodation part is furnished with one or more distribution ports for the viscous cosmetic substance, and an application face is provided outside the front edge wall. Furthermore, the accommodation part thereinside is fitted with an inner tray that enables pressing the viscous cosmetic substance accommodated in the accommodation part so as to enable the viscous cosmetic substance to be pushed outward through the distribution ports.

  • Patent number: 7857538
    Abstract: The outer face of a distal end part having a discharge opening 1c at the distal end of an applicator 100 is a sloped face 1a, so that skin or another surface to be coated can be coated favorably, and when a moving body 6 advances as far as it can, an elastic body 9 provided to the distal end of the moving body 6 hits a sloped face 1b that is the inner face of the distal end part having the discharge opening 1c at the distal end of the applicator 100, and elastically deforms along said sloped face 1b, and an application material L that could not be pushed out with a conventional piston and would remain in a substantially hoof-shaped (sloped cylindrical) space (a space including the sloped face 1b within the applicator distal end) can be completely pushed out by the elastic body 9, leaving almost none behind, so that all of it can be consumed.
