Description

  • L'invention concerne un ensemble-applicateur contenant une faible dose de produit de maquillage. The invention relates to a set-applicator containing a small makeup product dose. Par faible dose, on entend une dose permettant une touche d'essai ou une application unique du produit de maquillage. For low dose means a dose that a key test or a single application of the makeup product. L'invention concerne donc essentiellement un ensemble-applicateur qui peut être distribué comme échantillon, et n'est plus réutilisable. The invention therefore relates essentially a set-applicator that can be distributed as a sample, and is no longer reusable.
  • Il est connu d'utiliser des applicateurs de produit de maquillage permettant une application unique ; It is known to use makeup product applicators for a single application; ces applicateurs sont constitués d'un élément de préhension portant une tige à l'extrémité libre de laquelle se trouve placée une certaine quantité du produit de maquillage. these applicators comprise a gripping element carrying a pin at the free end of which is placed an amount of the makeup product. Ce produit est protégé de l'extérieur, avant emploi, au moyen d'un capuchon qui recouvre la tige et le produit qu'elle porte, et qui est fixé sur l'élément de préhension lié à la tige. This product is protected from the outside, before use, by means of a cap which covers the rod and the product it carries, and is fixed on the gripping element connected to the rod. Dans un tel dispositif, le produit de maquillage est effectivement protégé vis-à-vis de l'extérieur, mais il faut généralement mettre en place manuellement le capuchon de protection et, en tout état de cause, l'extraction dudit capuchon avant usage risque de détériorer la quantité de produit de maquillage qui se trouve au bout de la tige. In such a device, the makeup product is actually protected vis-à-vis the outside, but it usually takes to manually set the protective cap and, in any event, the extraction of the cap before use risk damaging the amount of makeup product which is at the end of the rod.
  • Dans le brevet français 2 535 588, on a également proposé un dispositif plus simple, dans lequel on propose à l'utilisateur une pochette renfermant une pluralité d'applicateurs disposés côte à côte, l'ensemble se présentant à peu près comme une pochette d'allumettes. In French Patent 2,535,588, has also been proposed a simpler device, wherein there is provided the user with a cover enclosing a plurality of applicators arranged side by side, all appearing somewhat like a pocket of 'matches. L'extrémité libre de chacun des applicateurs en forme d'allumettes est recouverte d'un produit de maquillage. The free end of each of the applicators in the shape of matches is covered with a makeup product. Il est un fait que ce dispositif est d'un prix de revient plus raisonnable que le précédent compte tenu du fait que chaque applicateur n'est pas associé à un capuchon de protection. It is a fact that this device is a more reasonable cost than the previous view of the fact that each applicator is not associated with a protective cap. Mais, il est un fait également que lorsqu'une pochette d'applicateurs est entamée, l'utilisateur ne peut pas savoir si le nouvel applicateur qu'il prélève dans la pochette a été ou non pollué. But it is also a fact that when applicators cover is initiated, the user can not know whether the new applicator that fee was in the pocket or unpolluted. Ce dispositif, moins onéreux, ne donne donc pas totalement satisfaction. This device, less expensive, will not tell you total satisfaction.
  • Selon l'invention, on a trouvé que l'on pouvait fixer, sur un support, une quantité de produit suffisante pour obtenir une dose pour une touche d'essai, ou une application unique d'un produit de maquillage pâteux ou pulvérulent, en exerçant uniquement une pression, ce qui simplifie la fabrication des applicateurs de ce type. According to the invention, we found that we could determine, on a support, a sufficient amount of product for a dose for a trial key, or a single application of a product of paste or powder makeup, in exerting pressure only, which simplifies the manufacture of such applicators. L'invention a également pour avantage de permettre d'obtenir, directement après fixation du produit sur le support, un ensemble-applicateur distribuable dans lequel le support est fixé sur un berceau et forme couvercle-protecteur pour la dose de produit de maquillage à mettre en oeuvre. The invention also has the advantage of allowing to obtain, directly after attaching the product to the support, a distributable whole applicator wherein the support is fixed on a cradle and cover-protecting form for makeup product dose to be implemented.
  • L'invention a pour premier objet un procédé de fabrication d'un ensemble-applicateur d'un produit de maquillage P pulvérulent ou pâteux, ledit ensemble-applicateur comportant un support sur lequel est fixé par pression le produit P, caractérisé par le fait que l'on dépose le produit P dans une empreinte en creux ménagée dans un berceau, que l'on dispose le support sur le produit P dans l'empreinte, que l'on pose le berceau portant le support sur une platine, la face ne comportant pas d'empreinte reposant sur ladite platine, et que l'on exerce une pression sur l'ensemble support/berceau, de façon à insérer le support dans l'empreinte du berceau et à fixer sur le support au moins une partie du produit P contenu dans l'empreinte. The invention firstly provides a method of manufacturing an applicator for makeup powdery or pasty product P, said applicator assembly comprising a support on which is fixed by pressure the product P, characterized in that is deposited the product P in a hollow recess provided in a cradle, which has the support on the product P in the cavity, which raises the cradle carrying the support on a plate, the face not not having fingerprint based on said platen, and that a pressure is exerted on the support / cradle, so as to insert the carrier into the cavity of the cradle and to fix on the support at least a portion of the product P content in the impression.
  • La fixation par pression du produit P conduit à fixer une fraction plus ou moins importante de produit P, fraction qui dépend, bien entendu, de la nature plus ou moins lisse, respectivement, des matériaux constitutifs du berceau et du support, une partie de produit pouvant également se fixer sur le berceau dans le fond de l'empreinte. Fixing by pressure of the product P leads to a greater or lesser fraction of product P fraction which depends, of course, the more or less smooth, respectively, the constituent materials of the cradle and the support, part of a product can also be mounted on the cradle in the bottom of the impression.
  • L'invention a pour second objet un ensemble-applicateur obtenu par le procédé décrit ci-dessus. The invention has for object a second applicator assembly obtained by the method described above.
  • Dans cet ensemble-applicateur, la partie du support destinée à porter le produit P peut être au moins partiellement floquée pour faciliter l'accrochage dudit produit P. In this set-applicator, the part of the support intended to carry the product P can be at least partially flocked to facilitate the hooking of said product P.
  • Le berceau peut avoir une forme quelconque, par exemple ronde, ovale, carrée ou rectangulaire, et peut comporter une pluralité d'empreintes et de supports associés. The cradle can have any shape, for example round, oval, square or rectangular, and may comprise a plurality of fingerprints and associated media.
  • Le berceau peut être en matière plastique ou en carton. The cradle can be made of plastic or cardboard. L'empreinte du support, lorsqu'il est en carton, peut être obtenue par emboutissage du carton ou en contrecollant au moins deux feuilles de carton, l'une de ces feuilles au moins étant découpée pour former l'empreinte. The footprint of the support, when it is made of cardboard, can be obtained by stamping the carton or by laminating at least two cardboard sheets, one of these sheets at least one being cut to form the print. La feuille non découpée peut être une simple feuille de papier mince. The uncut sheet may be a single thin sheet of paper. Le berceau et/ou le support peut être, au moins partiellement, transparent de façon à permettre de voir la couleur du produit P. The cradle and / or the carrier may be at least partially transparent so as to allow viewing of the color of the product P.
  • De préférence, l'empreinte comporte à l'une de ses extrémités une alvéole de préhension permettant de saisir le support pour le sortir de l'empreinte. Preferably, the footprint comprises at one of its ends a recess gripper for gripping the support and out of the footprint.
  • Le produit P est constitué de tout mélange de produits minéraux ou organiques destinés au maquillage, par exemple de la peau du visage et des paupières. The product P is comprised of any mixture of inorganic and organic products for makeup, for example the skin of the face and eyelids. Parmi les produits minéraux, on peut citer le talc, les argiles, en particulier le kaolin, le mica et les pigments minéraux, par exemple les oxydes de titane, de zinc ou de fer. Among the minerals include talc, clays, in particular kaolin, mica, and inorganic pigments, for example titanium oxide, zinc oxide or iron. Parmi les produits organiques, on peut citer des poudres végétales, telles que l'amidon de riz ou la poudre de soie, des poudres de polymères non thermoplastiques, telles que les polyacrylates et les fibres, par exemple des fibres de coton. Among the organic products, there may be mentioned vegetable powders such as rice starch or silk powder, powders of non-thermoplastic polymers, such as polyacrylates and fibers, for example cotton fibers.
  • Il est possible d'introduire éventuellement une petite quantité de liant pour améliorer la fixation du produit P sur le support ; It is possible to optionally introduce a small amount of binder to improve the binding of the product P on the support; cette quantité est, avantageusement, inférieure à 20 % en poids par rapport au poids total du produit P. Dans le cas d'une pâte, le mélange contient généralement des liants de nature cireuse ou huileuse. this amount is advantageously less than 20% by weight relative to the total weight of the product P. In the case of a paste, the mixture usually contains waxy or oily nature of binders.
  • Le support est, de préférence, fabriqué en carton ou en matière plastique rigide ou servi-rigide. The carrier is preferably manufactured from cardboard or rigid or rigid plastic material used. Le support peut avoir de nombreuses formes ; The support can take many forms; il a, de préférence, la forme d'une languette dont une extrémité présente un épanouissement. it has preferably the form of a tongue of which one end has an enlarged. Le produit P est alors fixé sur l'extrémité élargie de la languette. The product P is then fixed to the widened end of the tongue.
  • Le maintien en place du support dans l'empreinte peut se faire par ajustement bord à bord ou par encliquetage à l'aide d'un redent disposé sur le bord de l'empreinte. Maintaining in place the support into the cavity can be done by adjusting edge to edge or by latching using a cusp arranged on the edge of the footprint. L'ensemble berceau/support peut avantageusement être recouvert d'une pellicule pelable qui assure à l'utilisateur que le support n'a encore jamais été détaché du berceau, le support n'étant donc pas pollué, et permet également d'améliorer la conservation du produit. The cradle assembly / support can advantageously be covered with a peelable film which assures the user that the media has never been detached from the cradle, the support therefore not polluted and also improves preservation.
  • Le berceau peut être, sur sa face portant l'empreinte, recouvert d'un cache tout autour du support: ce cache peut être, par exemple, en papier ou en matière plastique soudée ou claquée sur le berceau. The cradle may be, on its face carrying the print, covered with a cover around the substrate: this cache may be, for example, paper or plastic welded or snap-fitted on the cradle. Ce cache peut être décoré, porter la marque du fabricant du produit ou d'autres indications ; This cache can be decorated, bear the mark of the manufacturer of the product or other indications; plusieurs caches différents peuvent être adaptés sur le même berceau, ceci permettant l'utilisation d'un même berceau pour différents produits. several different caches can be fitted on the cradle, thus allowing the use of the same cradle for different products.
  • Cet ensemble-applicateur peut être distribue comme échantillon et peut être jeté après usage. This set-applicator can be distributed as a sample and can be discarded after use. On peut obtenir des ensembles très minces qui peuvent être utilisés dans des supports de presse, tels que des magazines. One can get very thin sets that can be used in news media, such as magazines.
  • La description donnée ci-dessous, à titre illustratif et non limitatif, de deux modes de réalisation permettra de mieux comprendre l'invention. The description given below, for illustration and not limitation, two embodiments will better understand the invention.
  • Sur ce dessin : On this drawing :
    • - la figure 1 représente un ensemble-applicateur selon l'invention en cours d'assemblage avant compactage ; - Figure 1 shows a set-applicator according to the invention during assembly prior to compaction;
    • - la figure 2 représente, en coupe longitudinale, l'ensemble illustré sur la figure 1 après compactage ; - Figure 2 shows, in longitudinal section, the assembly illustrated in Figure 1 after compaction;
    • - la figure 3 représente, en coupe transversale, un autre mode de réalisation de l'ensemble selon l'invention. - Figure 3 shows, in cross section, another embodiment of the assembly according to the invention.
  • L'ensemble illustré sur la figure 1 est désigné par 1. Il est constitué par un berceau 2 comportant une empreinte 3 et par un support 4. Le berceau 2 est constitué par une plaquette rectangulaire de carton emboutie pour former l'empreinte en creux 3. Le support 4 est découpé dans une feuille de carton plus mince. The assembly illustrated in Figure 1 is designated by 1. It consists of a cradle 2 having a recess 3 and a support 4. The cradle 2 consists of a rectangular cardboard plate stamped to form the hollow imprint 3 . The support 4 is cut from a thin sheet of cardboard. Il est constitué de deux parties : une tige 41 parallélépipédique et une palette ronde 42. Une des faces de la palette 42 porte un floc 43. L'empreinte 3 du berceau 2 a une forme en haltère ; It consists of two parts: a shank 41 and a round rectangular pallet 42. One of the sides of the pallet 42 carries a floc 43. The impression 3 of the cradle 2 has a dumbbell shape; elle est constituée de deux alvéoles 31 et 32 reliées par une rainure parallélépipédique 33. La rainure parallélépipédique 33 a une largeur telle que la tige 41 du support 4 puisse s'y insérer bord à bord. it consists of two cells 31 and 32 connected by a rectangular parallelepiped groove 33. The groove 33 has a width such that the stem 41 of the holder 4 it can be inserted edge to edge. Sa profondeur est également telle que, lorsque la tige 41 est fixée dans la rainure 33, la face externe de la tige 41 est au niveau de la surface du berceau 2. L'alvéole 32 a également des bords de dimensions telles que la palette 42 puisse s'y mettre en place bord à bord. Its depth is also such that when the rod 41 is fixed in the groove 33, the outer face of the rod 41 is at the surface of the cradle 2. The cell 32 has also dimensions of edges such that the pallet 42 it can set up alongside. La profondeur de l'alvéole 32 est supérieure à l'épaisseur du support 4, de façon à pouvoir contenir une poudre ou une pâte P. The depth of the cell 32 is greater than the thickness of the support 4, so as to contain a powder or a paste P.
  • L'alvéole 31 a des dimensions identiques à l'alvéole 32. Elle est disposée de façon telle qu'après assemblage une partie de la tige 41 du support 4 soit disposée dans ladite alvéole 31, comme illustré en traits mixtes sur la figure 1. The socket 31 has identical dimensions to the recess 32. It is arranged so that after assembly a portion of the rod 41 of the holder 4 is disposed in said cavity 31, as shown in phantom in Figure 1.
  • Pour fabriquer l'ensemble 1, on remplit l'alvéole 32 du produit P à fixer ; To manufacture the assembly 1, the cell 32 is filled with the product P to be fixed; dans le cas où le produit P est pâteux, on peut verser dans l'alvéole le produit P à l'état fondu, c'est-à-dire à chaud. in the case where the product P is paste, can be poured into the cell the product P in the molten state, that is to say heat. Ensuite, on pose le support 4 sur l'empreinte 3 du berceau 2, de façon que la face 43 portant le floc de la palette 42 du support 4 soit tournée vers le produit P contenu dans l'alvéole 32. On dépose ensuite l'ensemble 1 sur une platine, le support étant tourné vers l'extérieur. Then, the support 4 is placed on the cavity 3 of the cradle 2 so that the face 43 bearing the floc of the pallet 42 of the holder 4 is turned towards the product P contained in the cavity 32. One then deposits the assembly 1 on a plate, the support being rotated outwards. A l'aide d'un plateau mobile de presse, on exerce sur l'ensemble 1 porté par la platine, que constitue le plateau fixe de la presse, une pression d'environ 50 bars pendant 10 secondes. Using a movable platen of the press, is exerted on the assembly 1 carried by the plate, which constitutes the fixed platen of the press, a pressure of about 50 bars for 10 seconds. Sous l'effet de cette pression, le support 4 s'enfonce dans l'empreinte 3 et s'ajuste bord à bord dans la rainure 33 et dans l'alvéole 32 de cette empreinte. Under the effect of this pressure, the support 4 sinks into the impression 3 and adjusts edge to edge in the groove 33 and into the cavity 32 of the footprint. La majeure partie du produit P contenu dans l'alvéole 32 est fixée sur le floc 43 de la palette 42. On obtient ainsi un ensemble 1 (voir figure 2) contenant une faible dose de produit P, ensemble qui peut être distribué comme échantillon. The bulk of the product P contained in the cell 32 is fixed to the flock 43 of the pallet 42. Thus, a set 1 (see Figure 2) containing a low dose of product P, which assembly can be distributed as a sample.
  • Lorsqu'un utilisateur désire essayer le produit P, il sort le support 4 de l'empreinte 3 en passant un doigt sous la tige 41 dans l'alvéole 31. Il applique ensuite le produit P fixé sur le floc 43 du support 4. Lorsque l'application est terminée, le support 4 et le berceau 2 peuvent être jetés. When a user wishes to try the product P, it leaves the holder 4 of the cavity 3 through a finger under the rod 41 into the cavity 31. It then applies the product P fixed to the flock 43 of the support 4. When the application is complete, the support 4 and cradle 2 can be discarded.
  • La figure 3 représente une variante d'ensemble-applicateur 101 : le berceau 102 de l'ensemble 101 est constitué de deux plaquettes de carton 121, 122 contrecollées. Figure 3 shows an overall applicator variant 101: the cradle 102 of the assembly 101 consists of two cardboard pads 121, 122 laminated. La plaquette 122 est découpée de façon à former une empreinte 103 dont les bords comportent un redent 134 servant à maintenir la tige 141 d'un support 104 par encliquetage. The wafer 122 is cut so as to form a recess 103 whose edges comprise a cusp 134 for maintaining the rod 141 of a support 104 by snap-fastening. La face supérieure de l'ensemble berceau 102/support 104 est recouverte d'une pellicule pelable 150, qui doit, bien entendu, être enlevée avant l'extraction du support 104. La présence de la pellicule pelable 150 assure une certaine inviolabilité et montre à l'utilisateur que le support 104 n'a jamais été détaché du berceau 102 avant son emploi, et donc que le support 104 n'a pas été pollué ; The upper face of the cradle assembly 102 / support 104 is covered with a peelable film 150, which must of course be removed before extraction of the support 104. The presence of the peelable film 150 provides some inviolability and shows to the user that the support 104 has never been detached from the cradle 102 before use, and thus the support 104 is not polluted; la pellicule pelable 150 permet également d'améliorer la conservation du produit P. the peelable film 150 also improves the preservation of the product P.
