    Abstract: A closure-container system comprising a screw-threaded inner cap that mounts to a screw threaded container, and an overshell that is enabled to rotate and translate relative to the inner cap. As the overshell rotates relative to the inner cap, one or more metallic magnets located in the overshell pull the cap toward one or more metallic elements associated with the container. The overshell and container make direct contact, so there is no unsightly gap. Also, the contact produces a satisfying, reassuring metallic “click” sound, accompanied by a luxurious tactile sensation that, together, dispel the silent ennui normally associated with rotating closures.

    Abstract: Provided is a tool for applying cosmetics for mascara and eyebrow cosmetics which allows applying a liquid cosmetic in an appropriate amount to eyelashes or eyebrows, and with which a previously unexperienced feeling of use can be obtained. In an application tool (1) for which a plurality of bristles (30) are fixed in a double-folded manner to the inside of a long groove (12), which is formed at a partial side surface of a brush portion (10) formed at a leading end side of a brush shaft (6), comb teeth (26) are integrally formed at a predetermined pitch in a brush portion axial direction on an exposed surface (21) of the fastener (20). As a result of forming the comb teeth (26) in a space that is wide between two lines of bristle groups (30a, 30b), the liquid pool space is narrowed accordingly, so that excessive pooling of a liquid cosmetic (2) in the brush portion (10) can be prevented.

  • Patent number: 9326579
    Abstract: A lice, flea or other parasitic insect comb has a handle that extends over top of the metal teeth of the comb and is shaped to be comfortable in the hand. The handle can comprise a U-shaped portion having a hand grip portion and a pair of spaced-apart struts that extend between the hand grip portion and the metal teeth of the comb. Preferably, the hand grip portion is spaced from a plane containing or aligned with the metal teeth and is vertically aligned with the metal teeth of the comb. Such a handle configuration can facilitate positioning of the teeth of the comb substantially flat against or parallel to the scalp, which makes removal of lice and nits more effective. In some configurations, the comb teeth can be wider than standard lice combs, so it covers more hair and therefore takes less time to remove nits and lice.

  • Patent number: 8132285
    Abstract: One embodiment of an applicator comprises a brush head with a ferrule, and a brush handle. The ferrule has the head at one end and the handle at the other end. Magnetic elements, at least one of which is a magnet, are attached to the brush handle and ferrule where the two parts connect. The brush head can be removed from the handle, assembled with the handle, and switched easily whenever needed. The ferrule can be kept firmly on the handle by the action of the magnet inside. The head can be retracted by sliding a sleeve mounted on the handle forward over the sides of the head. The head, when removed from the handle, can be washed without the risk of water penetrating the sleeve mechanism. The head can also be replaced or interchanged, which can greatly enlarge the versatility of the brush and also avoids waste of material.
