Abstract

The cotton bud according to the invention, comprising a short rod 2 carrying on at least one of its ends a ball of cotton 3, is characterised in that the ball of cotton has a pointed shape towards the outside, particularly of substantially conical axial section. <IMAGE>

Description

La présente invention a pour objet un "coton-tige" perfectionné, utilisable notamment pour les soins de beauté. The present invention relates to a "swab" perfected, used especially for beauty treatments.

La vente et l'emploi des "cotons-tiges" -bâtonnets comportant des boules de coton à leurs extrémités- ont connu au cours des dernières années une grande expansion. The sale and use of "swabs" -bâtonnets with cotton balls in their ends- experienced in recent years a large expansion.

Initialement prévus pour les soins apportés aux enfants, en particulier à la suite de l'emploi par les mamans d'une allumette ou d'une épingle à cheveux garnie de coton servant au nettoyage du nez et des oreilles, ces bâtonnets ont connu par la suite des extensions d'emploi considérables, en tant qu'articles d'hygiène notamment pour le nettoyage des oreilles ainsi que pour les soins de beauté et aussi pour le nettoyage de machines délicates. Initially intended for the care of children, particularly as a result of employment by mothers of a match or a hairpin lined with cotton for cleaning the nose and ears, these rods have known the following significant job extensions as hygienic as articles including ear cleaning as well as beauty treatments and for cleaning delicate machines.

La présente invention a trait tout spécialement à l'emploi pour les soins de beauté. The invention specifically relates to employment for beauty treatments. En effet, si l'on examine les bâtonnets se trouvant actuellement dans le commerce, on constate que leur forme est loin de donner toute satisfaction pour cet usage. Indeed, if one examines the sticks currently located in the trade, we see that their form is far from giving any satisfaction for the purpose. La boule de coton se trouvant à l'extrémité du bâtonnet est de section axiale sensiblement ovoide, donc avec un bout rond et relativement gros, ne permettant pas le maquillage avec précision. The cotton ball located at the end of the stick is axial section substantially ovoid, so with a round, relatively large end, not allowing makeup precisely.

L'invention vise à éviter cet inconvénient. The invention aims to avoid this.

La présente invention concerne donc un '1coton tige" perfectionné, comprenant un bâtonnet portant sur au moins l'une de ses extrémités une boule de coton, et qui est caractérisé en ce que la boule de coton a une forme pointue vers l'extérieur. Ainsi, la boule de coton selon l'invention présente de préférence une section axiale sensiblement conique. Le bâtonnet peut porter une ou deux boules de coton selon l'invention mais, selon une variante, la seconde boule de coton est de forme classique, c'est-à-dire de section axiale sensiblement ovolde. Cette variante permet de multiplier les usages du "coton-tige" selon l'invention, notamment pour les soins de beauté.Par exemple, le bout pointu convient pour une rectification du maquillage, le nettoyage des ongles, etc, tandis que le bout arrondi permet d'étaler ou d'enlever les produits tels que le ~nd de teint, vernis à ongles, etc. The present invention therefore relates to a '1coton rod "perfected comprising a rod having on at least one of its ends a cotton ball, and is characterized in that the cotton ball has a pointed shape toward outside. thus, cotton ball of the invention has preferably a substantially conical axial section. the rod may carry one or two cotton balls according to the invention but according to a variant, the second cotton ball is of conventional form, c that is to say axial section substantially ovolde. This variant makes it possible to increase the uses of "swab" according to the invention, in particular for care beauté.Par example, the sharp tip is suitable for rectification makeup, clean nails, etc., while the rounded tip helps spread or remove products such as ~ nd foundation, nail polish, etc.

Le "coton-tige" selon l'invention peut être fabriqué avec l'appareillage habituel, adapté à la forme spécifique pointue de la boule de coton, notamment à l'aide d'une gouttière (ou glissière) de formage sensiblement conique. The "swab" according to the invention can be manufactured with conventional equipment adapted to the specific pointed shape of the ball of cotton, in particular by means of a channel (or slide) of substantially conical forming. Ainsi le coton en mèche (par exemple de 1,4 g/m) est projeté sur le bâtonnet préalablement encollé ou chauffé (notamment s'il est en matière plastique), puis est roulé dans la glissière conique de sorte que la boule prenne une forme pointue, sensiblement conique, idéale pour le maquillage ou tout autre soin de beauté. Thus the cotton wick (e.g., 1.4 g / m) is projected onto the previously heated glue or stick (especially if it is made of plastic) and is then rolled into the conical slide so that the ball takes a pointed shape, substantially conical, ideal for makeup or other beauty treatment.

La description suivante en regard du dessin annexé illustre l'invention. The following description with reference to the annexed drawing illustrates the invention.

La Fig. Fig. unique représente schématiquement, en coupe axiale, un "coton-tige" comprenant un bâtonnet 2 portant sur lune de ses extrémités une boule de coton 1, de forme classique arrondie, c'est-à-dire de section axiale sensiblement ovoïde et, sur l'autre extrémité, une boule de coton 3 de forme pointue 4 vers l'extérieur, selon l'invention. single shows schematically, in axial section, a "swab" comprising a rod 2 on moon of its ends a cotton ball 1, round classical form, that is to say substantially ovoid axial section and on the other end, a cotton ball 3 of pointed shape 4 outwardly of the invention. La boule de coton 3 présente une section axiale sensiblement conique, la pointe 4 du cône étant la partie fonctionnelle, tandis que la partie opposée, non utilisée, peut être de forme arrondie. The cotton ball 3 has a substantially conical axial section, the tip 4 of the cone being the functional part, while the opposite part, not used, can be rounded. Le bâtonnet 2 portant les boules de coton 1, 3 peut être en bois ou en matière plastique et peut comporter des stries longitudinales. The rod 2 carrying the cotton balls 1, 3 can be wood or plastic and can comprise longitudinal grooves. A titre d'exemple, la longueur du bâtonnet est par exemple de 70 mm, et son diamètre de 2,5 mm, et dans ce cas, les boules de coton ont utilement un diamètre maximal d'environ 5 mm, mais ces dimensions ne sont absolument pas indispensables pour réaliser l'invention. For example, the rod length is for example 70 mm, and its diameter of 2.5 mm, and in this case, the cotton balls usefully have a maximum diameter of about 5 mm, but these dimensions are absolutely essential for carrying out the invention. En variante, le bâtonnet 2 peut porter-deux boules de coton 3. Alternatively, the stick-2 can carry two cotton balls 3.
