TISSUE FACE TOWEL Filed Jan. 13, 1957 Patented Apr. 5, 1938 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE Alma D. Milliken, Rye, N. Y. Application January 13, 1937, Serial No. 120,411

3 Claims.

The present invention relates to a tissue face towel, designed primarily for use in removing creams of various kinds and like preparations, commonly employed for improving'the skin.

5 Smooth surface tissue or tissue with a raised or depressed surface, now available in the market, is not favored for face towel use by beauty specialists or the average individual, as it is found that the action is not to take up and remove the cream from the face but to force it into the skin and as this is highly, objectionable for many obvious reasons, the tissue face towel has not been a commercial success.

Effective face cream removal, without irritat- I 1 5 ing or injuring the skin, requires a soft, rough surface tissue, which will not smooth out and become glazed with the cream and so present a slippery, impervious surface, but will adsorb the cream taken up, by providing outlet for the same through the body of the tissue to the opposite surface thereof, leaving the active surface effective for continued use.

I have found that tissue may be given the required soft, rough surface and outlet provided through the sheet, by giving the body of the tissue araised surface pattern, preferably of studlike projections, in the form of small cones, pyramidsor the like, open and roughly edged at the top to give a brush-like effect. The openings thus provided afford ready passage for the cream to the opposite side of the sheet and the many small strands edging the openings, extend and softly roughen the surface of the tissue and thus increase the cream take-up action whenthe tissue is applied to the face.

Different forms oftissue face toweling suitable for carrying myinvention into effect, are illustrated in the accompanyingdrawing but I do not wish to be understood as intending to limit myself to the same, as various changes may -be made therein without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention, as outlined in the appended claims.

In the drawing- Fig. 3 is a sectional view, similar to Fig. 2 .11

55 lustrating a modification.

Fig. 1 is a plan view. of a portion of one form Referring now to the drawing, the form of the towel shown in Figs. 1 and 2, consists of a body I, of soft tissue, having a'through-cut pattern formed therein of apertures 2. As indicated in Fig. 1 by the substantially circular outline of the ap- 5 ertur'e, and in Fig. 4 by the actual lengths of the upturned edges of the aperture 2, material is removed from the body I in forming the apertures 2. The resulting projections may be considered as frusto-conical in shape with the tops cut off 10 in a plane parallel to the plane of the body I, or as apertured recesses. from the other side of the body I. The apertures are roughly broken through the sheet to provide ragged edges 3, around each of the openings. Inuse of the towel, 15

' these ragged edges 3 will have a brush-like effect and aid materially in the removal of the cream from the face, while the openings 2, give passage to the cream through the body of the towel to the opposite side thereof, thereby avoiding an accumulation of cream on the active surface of the towel, which would tend to form a slippery glaze and cause an objectionable rubbing in rather than a removing action. As use of the towel involves pressure on the skin, the upturned edges 25 of the apertures 2 are likely to be somewhat compressed back into the plane of the body I, but as the apertures 2 result from the removal of material from the body I, openings are maintained therethrough and the cleansing action of 30 the towel in accordance with my invention is not impaired.

In the modification shown in Fig. 3, the tissue towel is designated I and provided on both sides with a raised surface patternof stud-like pro- 35 jections 4 so that either surface of the towel may be used as the active side for wiping cream from the skin. The projections 4 are constructed similarly to the projections 2 in the above-described form of my invention but alternate in direction, adjacent projections extending from opposite surfaces of the towel in order to provide a uniform raised pattern on both sides of the towel so that either side thereof may be applied to the skin without the need of taking notice as to which may be the active surface-the surface with the raised pattern-thusfacilitating its use and increasing the convenience thereof.

As the operation and many important advantages of the invention will be apparent from the foregoing, it will not be necessary to further describe the same.

Having described my invention, I claim:

1. A device for removing cosmetic cream from the skin comprising a tissue paper towel having a multiplicity of apertures therein resulting from ripheral edges of said apertures extending in the the removal of portions of said towel, said apersame direction and comprising the wiping eletures being adapted to pass cream from the acments of the active surface. tive to the inactive surface of the towel, and the 3.
