COMPOSITE WEB FOR TREATING HUMAN TISSUE Filed Oct. '10, 1966 9 1 IL I INVEN'TOR. fizu'afiiz 5. Worceflier dzzw zww United States Patent 3,414,927 COMPOSITE WEB FOR TREATING HUMAN TISSUE Gordon S. Worcester, High St., Gloucester, Mass. 01930 Filed Oct. 10, 1966, Ser. No. 585,421 13 Claims. (Cl. -10493) ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE A disposable towel for cleaning the face or hands consists of two absorbent paper sheets separated by a moisture barrier, one sheet being impregnated with a skin toning agent, and the other with a cleaning agent which prepares the skin for the action of the toning agent. The towel is folded keeping the two sheets apart and sealed in a moisture-proof envelope.

Presently known packaged paper face cloths saturated with a moist cleansing agent are quite convenient after dining or working for cleaning facial and hand tissues. Their function is, however, limited to cleaning and cooling the tissue, and their effect is short-lived. It is the object of the present invention to provide a further treatment of human tissues which cooperates with the cleansing effect to produce additional and longer-lasting effects. While it might be thought that an additional agent such as an emollient or astringent might be combined in the aforementioned saturated cloths, the effect of the cleaning and named additional agents, when combined, appears to be reduced rather than increased as is the case with the present invention.

According to the invention a packaged article for treating human tissue comprises first and second thin sheets of absorbent material and a moisture barrier layer dis posed between and connecting said two sheets in a unitary web, said second sheet incorporating a skin toner such as an emollient or astringent for softening, moisturizing or shrinking human tissue on application of said second sheet thereto, and said first sheet incorporating a moist cleaning agent for preparing the tissues for reception of said toner, by application of the first sheet to said tissue prior to applying said second sheet.

For the purpose of illustration a typical embodiment of the invention is shown in the accompanying drawing in which:

FIG. 1 is a sectional view of a packaged web for treating human tissue; and

FIG. 2 is an enlarged section of the web of FIG. 1.

As shown in FIG. 1 a composite web 1 incorporating tissue treating agents is folded and sealed in a fairly closely fitting envelope 2 of aluminum foil.

The web itself, shown unfolded in FIG. 2, comprises two outer sheets 3 and 4 of thin, absorbent, non-woven fibrous tissue or paper such as kraft towelling. The two paper sheets are joined by an intermediate moisture barrier layer 6 such as Pliofilm or polyethylene which may be thermally adhered to the two absorbent sheets 3 and 4 to form the unitary, composite web 1.

One of the sheets 3 is impregnated or filled with one or several moist or fluid cleaning agents 7, which may include oils and creams. Typical cleaning agents include a moistening fluid such as water or glycerin; an antiseptic which may be alcohol; a perfume; and a cleanser such as facial quality liquid determent. Following is a typical solution:

3,414,927 Patented Dec. 10, 1968 The second sheet 4 incorporates a skin toning agent 8 which is used subsequent to applying the cleaning agent of the first layer 3 to the facial or other tissue. Typical toning agents are glycerol, sorbitol or mannitol as emollient skin softeners and moisturizers. An exemplary stringent solution is:

The toner may be in dry, inactive form and activated by the moistening fluid of the cleaning agent. The toner of layer 4 may also be another inactive state, and an activator included in the cleaning agent of layer 3. For example, the toner may be dry powdered lanolin, and the cleaning agent includes an aqueous solution which, after prior application to the tissue activates the lanolin when the layer 4 is subsequently applied to the tissue. In the several examples mentioned the cleaning agent not only performs its usual cleaning function, but also prepares the tissue for reception of the astringent and enhances the effect of the astringent.

In folding the composite web 1, care must be taken that the sheet 4 incorporating the toner is not opposed to a sheet 4 incorporating an activator. Thus, prior to insertion in the envelope 2, the web 1 is folded first so that sheet 3 or 4 is opposed only to itself.

It should be understood that tln's disclosure is for the purpose of illustration only and that the present invention includes all modifications and equivalents falling within the scope of the appended claims.

I claim:

1. A packaged article for treating human tissue comprising first and second thin sheets of absorbent material and a moisture barrier layer disposed between and connecting said two sheets in a unitary web, said second sheet incorporating means for toning human tissue on application of said second sheet thereto, and said first sheet incorporating a moist cleaning agent for preparing the tissues for reception of said toning means by application of the first sheet to said tissues prior to applying said second sheet.

2. An article according to claim 1 wherein said toning means is incorporated in said second layer in inactive condition and said first layer incorporates means for activating said toning means.
