Title (EN) APPLICATOR HAVING A FOAM HEAD
(FR) APPLICATEUR COMPORTANT UNE TETE EN MOUSSE
Abstract:
(EN) An improved applicator for medicinal, therapeutic, pharmaceutical, and/or cosmetic preparations comprising an applicator head (10) having a foam applicator head (14), a flexible tubular reservoir (38) for storing the preparation, and a cap to seal off the applicator end of the applicator head; the foam having one or more slits (50D) which form communication passageways between the reservoir and the applicator head and which are compressed by the cap (70) to prevent migration of air from the exterior into the reservoir and passage of preparation from the reservoir to the applicator head when the cap is seated on the applicator head.
(FR) L'invention concerne un applicateur pour des préparations médicales, thérapeutiques, pharmaceutiques et/ou cosmétiques, qui comporte une tête (10) d'applicateur pourvue d'une tête d'applicateur en mousse (14), un réservoir tubulaire (38) flexible servant à stocker la préparation, et un couvercle permettant d'isoler l'extrémité de l'applicateur de la tête d'applicateur. La mousse présente une ou plusieurs fentes (50D) qui forment des passages de communication entre le réservoir et la tête d'applicateur, et qui sont comprimées par le couvercle (70) pour empêcher une migration d'air provenant de l'extérieur dans le réservoir, et le passage de la préparation provenant du réservoir vers la tête d'applicateur lorsque le couvercle est placé sur la tête d'applicateur.
