Description

L'invention concerne un ensemble de conditionnement transportable et éventuellement rechargeable pour produit, liquide à pâteux, en particulier pour mascara, comportant un applicateur et un réservoir muni d'au moins un essoreur.The invention relates to a transportable packaging assembly and possibly refillable for product, liquid to pasty, in particular for mascara, comprising an applicator and a reservoir provided with at least one wringer.

De façon plus précise, l'applicateur comporte un manche supportant au moins une touffe de poils, ces poils étant de forme et de longueur particulières et aptes à charger du mascara sur des fibres kératiniques, et en particulier des cils.More specifically, the applicator comprises a handle supporting at least a tuft of hairs, these hairs being of particular shape and length and suitable to load mascara onto keratin fibers, and in particular eyelashes.

Il a été proposé de nombreux dispositifs d'application et de conditionnement de mascara comportant en général un corps rigide tubulaire ouvert à une extrémité, contenant le produit de maquillage, et un applicateur apte à être logé dans ce corps et muni d'une tige se terminant par une brosse. Un essoreur logé dans le corps assure l'essorage de la brosse et/ou de la tige lorsque l'on retire l'applicateur du corps.Numerous application and conditioning devices have been proposed. mascara generally comprising a rigid tubular body open at one end, containing the makeup product, and an applicator capable of being housed in this body and provided with a rod ending in a brush. A wringer housed in the body wrings out the brush and / or rod when removing the body applicator.

Cependant, un des inconvénients rencontré lors de l'utilisation des dispositifs d'application et de conditionnement connus est que l'applicateur se comporte comme un piston lors de son déplacement dans le corps rigide, entraínant ainsi l'émission d'un bruit désagréable de succion, par retour brutal de l'intérieur du corps à la pression atmosphérique.However, one of the drawbacks encountered when using the devices known application and packaging is that the applicator behaves like a piston during its movement in the rigid body, thus causing the emission of an unpleasant suction noise, by sudden return from inside the body at atmospheric pressure.

Lorsque le produit de maquillage est fluide, l'essoreur comporte une partie resserrée pour effectuer le raclage de la tige de la brosse. On évite ainsi de laisser sur la tige du produit susceptible, lors de l'utilisation de la brosse, de venir couler sur le bouchon de l'applicateur et donc de souiller le filetage de celui-ci, destiné à la fixation du bouchon sur le corps. Cette partie resserrée contribue à augmenter l'intensité du bruit de succion émis. En outre, lorsque l'applicateur est retiré, du mascara provenant du raclage de la tige s'accumule à la périphérie de la partie resserrée de l'essoreur et forme un amas qui est projeté, par effet Venturi, sur le bout de la brosse lorsque l'air rentre brutalement dans le corps rigide. Cette projection de mascara en bout de la brosse constitue bien entendu une gêne pour l'utilisateur et une perte de produit.When the makeup product is fluid, the wringer has a portion tightened to scrape the brush rod. This avoids leave on the stem of the product likely, when using the brush, to come flow onto the cap of the applicator and therefore soil the thread of the latter, intended for fixing the plug to the body. This tight part contributes to increase the intensity of the suction noise emitted. In addition, when the applicator is removed, mascara from the stem scraping accumulates on the periphery of the constricted part of the wringer and forms a heap which is projected, by effect Venturi, on the tip of the brush when the air suddenly enters the body rigid. This projection of mascara at the end of the brush constitutes of course discomfort to the user and loss of product.

Un autre inconvénient présenté par les dispositifs d'application et de conditionnement connus est le cisaillement de la formule du mascara lors de l'essorage de la brosse de la façon décrite ci-dessus. En effet, sur de tels dispositifs, l'essorage, en se faisant perpendiculairement aux poils de la brosse, casse la formule du mascara : cette dernière est sujette à une variation de viscosité, elle peut former des grumeaux entraínant un mauvais lissage des cils. C'est en particulier le cas pour les mascara à forte charge pigmentaire. L'existence de ce phénomène nécessite d'utiliser des compositions insensibles au cisaillement et limite le nombre de compositions de mascara utilisables. Another drawback presented by the application and known conditioning is the shear of the mascara formula when spinning the brush as described above. Indeed, on such devices, wringing, by doing perpendicular to the bristles of the brush, breaks the mascara formula: the latter is subject to a variation of viscosity, it can form lumps causing poor eyelash smoothing. This is particularly the case for mascara with a high pigment load. The existence of this phenomenon requires the use of insensitive compositions shear and limits the number of mascara compositions that can be used.

Enfin, ces dispositifs d'application et de conditionnement de mascara présentent l'inconvénient d'être de grande taille et leur contenu finit souvent par sécher avant d'être entièrement utilisé. Il est donc difficile pour une même utilisatrice de disposer de plusieurs produits de mascara, par exemple de couleurs différentes. En outre, les dispositifs rechargeables connus sont également de grande taille et le produit sèche avant d'être entièrement utilisé, perdant ses propriétés maquillantes. Finally, these mascara application and conditioning devices have the disadvantage of being large and their contents often dry before to be fully used. It is therefore difficult for the same user to have several mascara products, for example different colors. In addition, the known rechargeable devices are also large in size and the product dries before being fully used, losing its properties makeup artists.

Le document US-A-5 137 387 décrit un ensemble de conditionnement, notamment pour un mascara, comportant un applicateur, relié à un organe de préhension, via une tige de section non circulaire. L'essoreur est de section correspondante à la section de la tige. Un tel dispositif ne résout en rien le problème mentionné ci-avant, relatif au séchage du produit avant utilisation complète.The document US-A-5 137 387 describes a packaging assembly, in particular for a mascara, comprising an applicator, connected to a gripping, via a rod of non-circular section. The wringer is section corresponding to the section of the rod. Such a device does nothing to resolve the problem mentioned above, relating to the drying of the product before use complete.

Le document FR-A-1 092 052 décrit un dispositif pour le conditionnement de produits liquides, cosmétiques et analogues, comprenant deux réservoirs superposés, le récipient supérieur formant un moyen d'obturation pour le réservoir inférieur. Un tel dispositif ne résout en rien le problème mentionné ci-avant, relatif au séchage du produit avant utilisation complète. Document FR-A-1 092 052 describes a device for packaging liquid, cosmetic and similar products, comprising two reservoirs superimposed, the upper container forming a sealing means for the lower tank. Such a device in no way solves the problem mentioned above, relating to the drying of the product before complete use.

Il subsiste donc le besoin d'un ensemble de conditionnement de mascara transportable et rechargeable, pour lequel tout le produit pourrait être utilisé jusqu'au bout sans crainte de séchage, le produit conservant ainsi toutes ses propriétés maquillantes.So there remains the need for a mascara packaging set transportable and rechargeable, for which all the product could be used to the end without fear of drying, the product thus retaining all of its makeup properties.

La présente invention vise à la satisfaction de ces besoins.The present invention aims to meet these needs.

L'objet de l'invention est donc un nouvel ensemble de conditionnement transportable pour produit, liquide à pâteux, conforme à la revendication 1.The object of the invention is therefore a new packaging unit transportable for product, liquid to pasty, according to claim 1.

Le produit destiné à être transporté par l'ensemble de conditionnement selon l'invention peut être tout produit liquide à pâteux, tels que des fluides comprenant des pigments et/ou des charges, et en particulier de la teinture pour cheveux ou du mascara.The product intended to be transported by the packaging unit according to the invention can be any liquid to pasty product, such as fluids comprising pigments and / or fillers, and in particular hair dye or mascara.

De façon avantageuse, la partie poilue comporte au moins une touffe de poils implantée parallèlement au plan du manche de l'applicateur, la largeur de l'extrémité libre de la touffe de poils, mesurée selon une première direction parallèle à ce plan, étant au moins égale à un quart d'un arc de cils, les poils étant aptes à charger du mascara sur des fibres kératiniques selon un axe, de préférence longitudinal, de ces dernières.Advantageously, the hairy part comprises at least one tuft of hairs implanted parallel to the plane of the applicator handle, the width of the free end of the tuft of hairs, measured in a first direction parallel to this plane, being at least equal to a quarter of an arc of eyelashes, the hairs being able to load mascara onto keratin fibers along an axis, longitudinal preference, of the latter.

Les fibres kératiniques peuvent être en particulier les cils, les sourcils, les cheveux, les poils.The keratin fibers can be in particular the eyelashes, the eyebrows, the hair, hairs.

Avantageusement, l'ensemble comporte des moyens pour créer une dépression à l'intérieur du premier réservoir lors du retrait de l'applicateur de ce premier réservoir, en vue de charger les poils en mascara. En particulier, il peut comporter un essoreur qui peut être fixé dans le premier réservoir et qui est adapté à la forme de la partie poilue de façon à racler les poils parallèlement à leur axe longitudinal, évitant ainsi le cisaillement. Cette configuration particulière permet également d'éviter le bruit de succion lors du retrait de l'applicateur. Le premier réservoir peut aussi comporter une poche souple contenant le mascara. Dans ce cas particulier, l'essoreur peut être fixé à la tête de cette poche souple. Advantageously, the assembly includes means for creating a depression inside the first reservoir when removing the applicator from the first tank, in order to load the mascara hairs. In particular, it can have a wringer which can be fixed in the first tank and which is adapted to the shape of the hairy part so as to scrape the hairs parallel to their longitudinal axis, thus avoiding shearing. This particular configuration also helps to avoid suction noise when removing the applicator. The first tank may also include a flexible pocket containing the mascara. In this particular case, the wiper can be attached to the head of this flexible pocket.

Celle-ci assure une meilleure charge des poils en mascara : en effet, le retrait de l'applicateur provoque, à l'intérieur de la poche souple, une dépression qui plaque les parois de cette poche sur les poils de l'applicateur et charge par conséquent ces derniers en mascara.This ensures a better load of the hairs in mascara: in fact, the removal of the applicator causes a depression inside the flexible bag which the walls of this pocket on the bristles of the applicator and therefore loads these in mascara.

Cet ensemble de conditionnement est extra-plat et présente ainsi l'avantage de ne pas prendre de place, d'être facilement transportable et d'être rechargeable. En effet, lorsque le contenu de la poche souple a été entièrement utilisé, il suffit de la remplacer par une autre poche semblable, thermocellée par exemple. De plus, le manche peut constituer avantageusement un réservoir à mascara secondaire. On peut ainsi ôter le premier réservoir à mascara et le remplacer par le réservoir secondaire et vice-versa.This packaging unit is extra-flat and thus has the advantage of not to take up space, to be easily transportable and to be rechargeable. In fact, when the contents of the flexible bag have been fully used, it suffices replace it with another similar pocket, thermocell for example. Of more, the handle can advantageously constitute a mascara tank secondary. We can thus remove the first mascara tank and replace it with the secondary tank and vice versa.

En outre, cet applicateur est lavable.In addition, this applicator is washable.

Selon le mode de réalisation illustré sur la figure 1, l'ensemble de conditionnement selon l'invention référencé 1 dans son ensemble comporte essentiellement un applicateur 3 et un premier réservoir 5 à mascara 6. Cet ensemble, contrairement à ceux de l'état de la technique, est extra-plat. Ainsi, la largeur de l'ensemble de conditionnement, mesurée selon une droite perpendiculaire au plan du manche, est de préférence comprise entre 4 mm et 12 mm. L'applicateur 3 est muni d'un manche plat 7 et d'une partie poilue 9 extra-plate directement fixée sur ce manche, parallèlement au plan de ce dernier. La partie poilue 9 est constituée de plusieurs touffes 12 de poils alignées, les poils 11 étant de longueurs, de formes, de diamètres, de sections et de natures différents, selon la charge, faible ou importante, que l'on désire apporter aux fibres kératiniques. Au moins une partie de la partie poilue 9 plonge dans le mascara. Une partie du manche 7 peut plonger dans le premier réservoir 5. La partie poilue 9 a une longueur globale efficace pour assurer une charge optimale des fibres kératiniques, et en particulier des cils. Cette longueur est sensiblement égale à celle du premier réservoir 5. En particulier, cette longueur va de 4 à 60 mm, de préférence de 5 à 40 mm.According to the embodiment illustrated in Figure 1, all of packaging according to the invention referenced 1 as a whole comprises essentially an applicator 3 and a first reservoir 5 for mascara 6. This together, unlike those of the state of the art, is extra-flat. So the width of the packaging unit, measured along a straight line perpendicular to the plane of the handle, is preferably between 4 mm and 12 mm. The applicator 3 is provided with a flat handle 7 and an extra-flat hairy part 9 directly attached to this handle, parallel to the plane of the latter. The hairy part 9 consists of several tufts 12 of bristles aligned, the hairs 11 being lengths, shapes, diameters, sections and natures different, depending on the load, low or high, that one wishes to bring to keratin fibers. At least part of the hairy part 9 plunges into the mascara. Part of the handle 7 can dive into the first tank 5. The hairy part 9 has an effective overall length to ensure optimal loading keratin fibers, and in particular the eyelashes. This length is substantially equal to that of the first tank 5. In particular, this length goes from 4 to 60 mm, preferably from 5 to 40 mm.

Le manche 7 est monté sur un capot 15 qui joue le rôle de couvercle et qui est apte à être claqué (gorge 2-bourrelet 4) sur le premier réservoir 5. Ce premier réservoir 5 comporte un col 17 dont la paroi interne 29 est munie d'un essoreur 19 dont une extrémité 22, située en regard du capot 15, est fixée sur ce col 17. Dans une autre forme de réalisation de l'invention, cette extrémité 22 peut prendre appui sur le col 17 du premier réservoir 5. Le manche 7 comporte, au niveau de l'extrémité 22 de l'essoreur, un système d'étanchéité. Celui-ci peut être un joint 21, comme représenté sur cette figure, ou une rondelle s'appuyant sur une collerette. L'essoreur 19 comporte, opposée à son extrémité fixe 22, une extrémité libre 24 dans laquelle est ménagée une ouverture 8 pour le passage de la partie poilue. Cette ouverture est de forme oblongue ou en forme d'ellipse aplatie, et sa plus grande dimension est perpendiculaire à la partie poilue, de façon à lisser les poils selon leur axe lors du retrait de l'applicateur. L'essoreur est apte à essorer la partie poilue selon l'axe des poils. Il peut comporter, à son extrémité 24, un autre système d'étanchéité pouvant être utilisé seul ou conjointement avec le système d'étanchéité 21 du manche. L'essoreur peut être en matériau rigide ou semi-rigide, choisi de préférence parmi les élastomères ou les matériaux thermoplastiques.The handle 7 is mounted on a cover 15 which acts as a cover and which is able to be slammed (groove 2-bead 4) on the first reservoir 5. This first tank 5 has a neck 17, the internal wall 29 of which is provided with a wringer 19, one end of which 22, located opposite the cover 15, is fixed to this neck 17. In another embodiment of the invention, this end 22 can bear on the neck 17 of the first reservoir 5. The handle 7 comprises, at level of the end 22 of the wiper, a sealing system. This one may be a seal 21, as shown in this figure, or a washer resting on a collar. The wiper 19 comprises, opposite its fixed end 22, a free end 24 in which an opening 8 is formed for the passage of the hairy part. This opening is oblong or elliptical flattened, and its largest dimension is perpendicular to the hairy part, so as to smooth the hairs along their axis when removing the applicator. The wringer is able to wring out the hairy part along the hair axis. It may include, at its end 24, another sealing system which can be used alone or together with the sealing system 21 of the handle. The wringer can be in rigid or semi-rigid material, preferably chosen from elastomers or thermoplastic materials.

Dans le mode de réalisation de cette figure 1, l'ensemble de conditionnement est fermé et l'ouverture 8 de l'essoreur est située en regard de l'extrémité fixe 26 de la partie poilue. Il est possible de positionner cette ouverture 8 en regard du manche 7. Dans ce cas, l'essoreur doit être conformé selon la forme du manche pour assurer, lors du retrait de l'applicateur, l'essorage du manche et de la partie poilue 9, toujours dans le sens longitudinal des poils 11. De préférence, l'extrémité fixe 26 de la partie poilue est située au voisinage de l'ouverture 8 de l'essoreur.In the embodiment of this FIG. 1, the packaging assembly is closed and the opening 8 of the wiper is located opposite the fixed end 26 of the hairy part. It is possible to position this opening 8 opposite the handle 7. In this case, the wringer must be shaped according to the shape of the handle to ensure, when removing the applicator, the wringing of the handle and the part hairy 9, always in the longitudinal direction of the hairs 11. Preferably, the fixed end 26 of the hairy part is located in the vicinity of the opening 8 of the wringer.

Cet ensemble de conditionement peut avoir une longueur totale de 3 à 6 fois inférieure à celle des ensembles de conditionnement classiques. De façon avantageuse, la longueur totale de l'ensemble de conditionnement selon l'invention va de 1 à 10 cm, et de préférence, de 1 à 5 cm.This packaging set can have a total length of 3 to 6 times lower than that of conventional packaging units. In a way advantageous, the total length of the packaging unit according to the invention ranges from 1 to 10 cm, and preferably from 1 to 5 cm.

De façon concrète, lorsque l'utilisatrice retire l'applicateur 3 du réservoir 5, il se produit un essorage des poils 11 au niveau de l'ouverture 8 de l'extrémité 24 de l'essoreur 19. Cet essorage, en se faisant parallèlement à l'axe longitudinal des poils, ne cisaille pas la formule du mascara. Un tel ensemble de conditionnement permet donc d'utiliser des compositions généralement sensibles au phénomène du cisaillement et ouvre la porte à de nouvelles formulations de mascara.Concretely, when the user removes the applicator 3 from the reservoir 5, it produces a wringing of the hairs 11 at the opening 8 of the end 24 of the wringer 19. This wringing, taking place parallel to the longitudinal axis of the bristles, do not shear the mascara formula. Such a packaging set therefore allows the use of compositions generally sensitive to the phenomenon shear and opens the door to new mascara formulations.

Selon une forme préférée de réalisation de l'invention, le mascara peut être contenu dans une poche souple 20, représentée sur la figure 2, et comportant une ouverture 25. L'ouverture 25 a une section égale à la section interne du col 17 du réservoir, le bord de cette ouverture 25 étant pris entre la paroi interne 29 du col 17 et l'extrémité 22 de l'essoreur 19. L'extrémité 24 de l'essoreur 19 est située à l'intérieur de la poche souple 20. Les pointillés représentent la position de la poche souple 20 lorsqu'on a commencé à retirer l'applicateur. Les parois 10 de la poche souple, par suite d'une dépression, sont alors aspirées et se collent le long de la partie poilue 9 : celle-ci se charge donc en mascara, ce dernier étant étalé sur la partie poilue 9 par les parois 10 de la poche souple interne 20.According to a preferred embodiment of the invention, the mascara can be contained in a flexible pocket 20, shown in Figure 2, and having an opening 25. The opening 25 has a section equal to the internal section of the neck 17 of the reservoir, the edge of this opening 25 being taken between the internal wall 29 of the neck 17 and the end 22 of the wiper 19. The end 24 of the wiper 19 is located inside the flexible pocket 20. The dotted lines represent the position of the flexible bag 20 when the applicator has started to be withdrawn. The walls 10 from the flexible bag, as a result of a depression, are then sucked up and stick along the hairy part 9: this is therefore loaded with mascara, the latter being spread over the hairy part 9 by the walls 10 of the internal flexible bag 20.

L'ensemble de conditionnement de la figure 3 se distingue de celui de la figure 1 par son manche 7, qui est flexible et qui comporte un réservoir secondaire 35 à mascara, jouant le rôle de recharge, et un capot 31. Le manche 7 est ici en deux parties articulées autour d'une charnière 33. Un tel manche flexible confère plus de douceur et de souplesse au maquillage.The packaging assembly of FIG. 3 differs from that of FIG. 1 by its handle 7, which is flexible and which includes a secondary reservoir 35 to mascara, playing the role of refill, and a cover 31. The handle 7 is here in two parts articulated around a hinge 33. Such a flexible handle gives more softness and suppleness to makeup.

Le premier réservoir 5, contenant la partie poilue 9, et le réservoir secondaire 35, sont disposés symétriquement par rapport à la charnière 33. Grâce à la possibilité de lavage de l'ensemble et plus particulièrement de la partie poilue 9, on peut utiliser deux mascara différents dans les deux réservoirs 5 et 35. Par exemple, on peut utiliser un mascara bleu et un mascara noir.The first reservoir 5, containing the hairy part 9, and the secondary reservoir 35, are arranged symmetrically with respect to the hinge 33. Thanks to the possibility of washing the assembly and more particularly of the hairy part 9, it is possible use two different mascara in the two tanks 5 and 35. For example, we can use blue mascara and black mascara.

Le réservoir secondaire 35 à mascara, ainsi que le premier réservoir 5 à mascara, peuvent contenir de 0,5 à 10 cm3 de produit chacun, de préférence, de 1 à 5 cm3. Cette contenance peut constituer la moitié ou le tiers de la contenance classique des mascara connus. Cette petite taille permet d'éviter le séchage du produit qui peut être utilisé entièrement avant de sécher et conserve ainsi une texture idéale tout au long de son utilisation.The secondary mascara reservoir 35, as well as the first mascara reservoir 5, can contain from 0.5 to 10 cm 3 of product each, preferably from 1 to 5 cm 3 . This capacity can constitute half or a third of the conventional capacity of known mascara. This small size avoids drying of the product which can be used entirely before drying and thus retains an ideal texture throughout its use.

Sur la figure 4 est représenté le réservoir secondaire 35 en perspective. Il est identique au premier réservoir 5 et peut le remplacer lorsque ce dernier est vide. En vue d'empêcher l'écoulement du mascara et d'assurer la bonne conservation de ce dernier, un opercule 28 déchirable est prévu. Un bouchon claqué sur le réservoir 35 peut également être utilisé à la place de cet opercule.In Figure 4 is shown the secondary tank 35 in perspective. It is identical to the first tank 5 and can replace it when the latter is empty. To prevent the flow of mascara and ensure proper storage of the latter, a tearable cover 28 is provided. A cap slammed on the tank 35 can also be used in place of this cover.

L'ensemble de conditionnement représenté sur la figure 5 se distingue de celui de la figure 1 par son système de fermeture qui est ici un arceau 13. L'applicateur et le premier réservoir sont maintenus ensemble grâce à cet arceau dont l'une des extrémités 14 est solidaire du premier réservoir. Dans une autre forme de réalisation de l'invention non représentée, l'extrémité 14 de l'arceau 13 peut être solidaire du capot 15.The packaging assembly shown in Figure 5 differs from that of Figure 1 by its closure system which is here an arch 13. The applicator and the first tank are held together thanks to this hoop, one of which ends 14 is secured to the first reservoir. In another form of embodiment of the invention not shown, the end 14 of the arch 13 can be secured to the cover 15.

Les figures 6a et 6b représentent une variante de l'ensemble de conditionnement 1 de la figure 1 dont le manche 7 comporte une partie 16, articulée autour d'une charnière 18, et apte à assurer une préhension latérale de l'applicateur. En position ouverte, comme représenté sur la figure 6b, cette partie 16 constitue ainsi un organe de préhension latérale de l'applicateur. La figure 6a représente l'applicateur lorsque la partie 16 est refermée.Figures 6a and 6b show a variant of the packaging assembly 1 of FIG. 1, the handle 7 of which comprises a part 16, articulated around a hinge 18, and capable of ensuring lateral gripping of the applicator. In open position, as shown in FIG. 6b, this part 16 constitutes thus a lateral gripping member of the applicator. Figure 6a shows the applicator when part 16 is closed.

La figure 7 représente un ensemble selon l'invention pour lequel le manche est articulé autour d'une charnière 37, ce manche comportant un cran d'arrêt 38 pour bloquer le manche dans une position inclinée.FIG. 7 represents an assembly according to the invention for which the handle is articulated around a hinge 37, this handle comprising a catch 38 for lock the handle in an inclined position.

L'ensemble de conditionnement selon l'invention présente les avantages d'être rechargeable et de pouvoir être transporté facilement. Grâce à un tel ensemble de conditionnement, on évite les gaspillages de produit dus à la trop grande contenance du réservoir des dispositifs connus.The packaging assembly according to the invention has the advantages of being rechargeable and easy to transport. Thanks to such a set packaging, we avoid wasted product due to excessive tank capacity of known devices.

Un tel ensemble de conditionnement de mascara est de réalisation très simple : il peut être réalisé en tout matériau habituellement utilisé pour la fabrication des accessoires cosmétiques.Such a mascara packaging set is very simple to produce: it can be made of any material usually used for the manufacture of cosmetic accessories.

L'applicateur ne comportant pas d'âme centrale métallique, l'ensemble de conditionnement objet de l'invention peut être réalisé uniquement en matières organiques, et en particulier uniquement en matières plastiques, et être de ce fait entièrement recyclable.Since the applicator does not have a metallic central core, the assembly of packaging object of the invention can be achieved only in materials organic, and in particular only plastics, and therefore be fully recyclable.
