Description:
CONTAINER FOR COSMETIC COMPOSITIONS

COSMETIC COMPOSITIONS

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a container for packaging and dispensing a cosmetic make-up composition on keratin materials, said container allowing a controlled distribution of a fluid makeup composition.

BACKGROUND TO THE INVENTION

Consumers are increasingly seeking individuality in their cosmetics, and this in turn has led to a recent increase in ways of obtaining personalized cosmetics. Consumers are, for example, increasingly using beauty smartphone apps that suggest products that suit them.

Concentrated pigment drops provide a form of personalized cosmetics. Consumers choose pigment drops that best suit their skin tone and then add these to their skin care composition of choice (such as moisturiser, serum or face oil), thus obtaining a combination that provides perfect coverage and the correct balance of skin actives. This is of particular appeal to consumers with sensitive skin who previously, once finding a cosmetics range that did not result in skin irritation, were reluctant to change cosmetics and so felt limited in terms of their look. Pigment drops allow such consumers to convert their trusted skin care composition into a foundation or concealer. A further layer of personalization is provided with these drops in that consumers can choose how many drops to apply to their skin care composition, with some pigment drop products currently on the market stating, for example, that a “sheer” level of coverage is obtained with one drop, a“medium” level of coverage is obtained with two drops and a“full” level of coverage is obtained with three drops.

Consumers can also add the pigment drops to colour cosmetics, such as a foundation, a concealer, a tinted moisturiser, a BB cream, a CC cream or a DD cream, as well as the skin care formulations discussed above. Consumers may wish to do this if they cannot find a colour cosmetic product that perfectly suits their skin tone, or for consumers that wish to add coverage to a colour cosmetic for special occasions (such as for a party or evening event) or for dealing with undesirable skin appearance (such as acne blemishes).

Furthermore, pigment drops can be used in isolation (i.e. applied directly to the skin of the consumer) or as a concealer (a cosmetic used to conceal imperfections on the face, such as dark spots, acne scars or discolouration).

With such pigment drop formulations it is important that a high level of droplet reproducibility is provided; consumers want to feel confident that a one, two, three, four or five-drop application will be consistent day after day. If a smaller than normal drop forms upon application then the consumer will have to either accept a level of coverage that is less than they are used to or add a further drop with the risk that they may have more coverage than normal. If a larger than normal drop forms upon application then the consumer will have to either accept a level of coverage that is higher than they are used to or discard some of the drop formation (which can be costly if the pigment drops are expensive). The same is true if the pigment drop formulation is used in isolation; the consumer using a pigment drop formulation with a high level of droplet reproducibility will become accustomed to the coverage by a single droplet and be able to use the formulation with ease each day to achieve the same look. This consumer would understandably get frustrated if the droplet size varies greatly from day to day and as a result, for example, pigment drop formulation is wasted as a result of the droplet size being too large on some days.

Some pigment drop products in the art are provided in a dropper-bottle with a pipette. Whilst such dropper bottles can be effective for formulations with a low viscosity, when used in combination with high viscosity formulations, the formulation has a tendency to stick to the outside of the pipette when the pipette is pulling out of the bottle. The formulation on the outside of the pipette can then move to the end of the pipette during use contribute to the droplet being expelled from the inside of the pipette. This can in turn lead to increased droplet variability. Such dropper-bottle packaging can also be messier during use, as the formulation present on the outside of the pipette can then run down the outside of the bottle as the pipette is being placed back within the bottle.

US2016/0296436 relates to a packaging and application device of a cosmetic composition comprising (1) a container containing said cosmetic composition, the container being a flexible -walled tube; and (2) a dispensing head comprising a dispensing orifice, the area having the smallest cross- section in respect of the flow of the composition between the container and the dispensing orifice is between 0.2 mm2 and 3 mm2. No mention regarding the viscosity of the cosmetic composition is made therein.

There remains a need for a means of providing consistent droplets of high-pigment formulations.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The inventors have surprisingly demonstrated that, through formulating a high pigment formulation in such a manner that the viscosity of the formulation (measured at 23 °C) is 10,000 centipoise (cps, equivalent to 10 Pascal seconds (Pa.s)) or above results in an improvement in droplet reproducibility when dispensed through a flexible-walled container with a dispensing orifice that is between 0.2 mm 2 and 2.0 mm 2 in smallest cross-sectional area of passage. This is contrary to previous teachings that droplet reproducibility is achieved through developing formulations that have a low viscosity. Examples of such low-viscosity formulations that have a high level of droplet reproducibility known in the art include eye drops.

Thus, in one aspect the present invention provides a container comprising a flexible wall and a dispensing head, wherein (1) the dispensing head is not detachable from the rest of the container during normal use; (2) the dispensing head comprises a dispensing orifice; (3) the smallest cross-sectional area of passage through the dispensing orifice is between 0.2 mm 2 and 2.0 mm 2 and (4) the container contains a fluid skin colour cosmetic composition having a viscosity of at least 10,000 cps measured at 23 °C and comprises at least 20% of one or more pigments.

Alternatively viewed, the present invention provides a container comprising a flexible wall and a dispensing head, wherein (i) the dispensing head is not detachable from the rest of the container during normal use; (ii) the dispensing head comprises a dispensing orifice; (iii) the smallest cross-sectional area of passage through the dispensing orifice is between 0.2 mm2 and 2.0 mm2 and (iv) the container contains a fluid skin colour cosmetic composition comprising at least 20% of one or more pigments, characterised in that the fluid skin colour cosmetic composition has a viscosity of at least 10,000 cps (10 Pa.s) measured at 23 °C.

In one embodiment the fluid skin cosmetic composition has a viscosity of less than 70,000 cps (70 Pa.s) measured at 23 °C.

In one embodiment the fluid skin cosmetic composition comprises no more than 40% of one or more pigments. In one embodiment the fluid skin cosmetic composition comprises at least 22% of one or more pigments, preferably at least 24% of one or more pigments, more preferably at least 26% of one or more pigments, more preferably at least 27% of one or more pigments.

In one embodiment the container is a bottle, preferably a tottle.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

Applicator

The container 1 comprises a flexible wall 2 and a dispensing head 3 closing the container 1. An example of the container is shown in longitudinal section in Figure 1. Preferably the container 1 is a tottle as shown in Figure 1. The term“tottle” is understood to mean a bottle that can sit on the cap 4 end. Tottles are often used as containers for compositions with a high viscosity, such as ketchup and conditioner, as it allows the consumer to stand the container on the cap 4 when not in use and, in doing so, allows the composition contained therein to move to the dispensing head. This then allows the composition to be dispensed straightforwardly when the container is next used. Preferably the bottom 5 of the container, that is to say the end opposite the dispensing head 3, is curved so that the container 1 cannot be stood upright on the bottom, in order to prevent the composition therein to accumulate away from the dispensing head 3.

The container 1 contains a fluid skin colour cosmetic composition (not shown). The wall 2 is deformable to the touch so that the distribution of the composition is generated by a pressure of the consumer on the wall.

The bottom 5 of the container is closed in a leaktight manner, for example by welding the flexible wall 2. The dispensing head 3 is not detachable from the rest of the container during normal use. In other words, the base 6 of the dispensing head 3 is fixed to the container 1 by any known means, in particular by welding or overmolding, overmolding being applicable to tube containers in particular. In a variant, with respect to tube containers, the dispensing head 3 can be made integral with the wall 2 of the container. Thus, the container 1 is not, for example, in the form of a dropper bottle where the dispensing head is detachable from the rest of the container during normal use.

The container 1 is for example made of a thermoplastic material. Preferably, the container 1 is made of a multilayer material. With respect to bottle and tottle containers, the material may comprise a polyethylene layer that provides a good level of structural integrity (strong enough to hold the composition and stand upright, but also deformable at the wall for dispensing), for example a blend of high density polyethylene (HDPE) and low density polyethylene (LDPE) (such as 40% HDPE/ 60% LDPE). Preferably, in addition to the polyethylene layer, the bottle or tottle can also comprise an inner ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) layer that prevents the composition from reacting with the polyethylene layer.

With respect to tube containers, the multilayer material may comprise a layer of metallic material, for example made of aluminum, arranged between two layers of thermoplastic material such as polyolefins such as polypropylene or polyethylene. Adhesive layers may be inserted between each of the thermoplastic and/or metal layers. The thickness of each layer may be between 10 pm and 400 pm.

The container made of a multilayer material has the advantage of limiting exchanges between the product contained in the container and the outside. This is particularly useful when the composition contained therein comprises volatile compounds.

In a further embodiment, the dispensing head 3 may be made of a thermoplastic material that is different from that of the rest of the container 1. The dispensing head 3 is for example made of a thermoplastic material such as polypropylene or polyethylene.

The dispensing head 3 has a dispensing orifice 7. The dispensing head 3 is advantageously a cannula extending in the axis of the container, at least the external surface of which preferably converging towards the dispensing orifice 7. The smallest cross-sectional area of passage through the dispensing orifice (X) is between 0.2 mm 2 and 2.0 mm 2 . Preferably the smallest cross-sectional area of passage through the dispensing orifice is between 0.3 mm 2 and 2.0 mm 2 , preferably between 0.3 mm 2 and 1.6 mm 2 , more preferably between 0.4 mm 2 and 1.2 mm 2 , more preferably between 0.6 mm 2 and 1.0 mm 2 .

The dispensing head 3 may include a thread 8 so as to receive a cap 4 in order to seal the container 1 by screwing onto the thread 8 of the dispensing head 3. The cap 4 may include a protuberance to be inserted into the dispensing orifice 7 in the screwed-on position on the container so as to close off said orifice 7.

In a preferred embodiment, the container 1 may contain a glass or metal ball (not shown) to aid the mixing of compositions contained therein before use. This can be particularly useful with respect to compositions that are prone to separating when still.

Fluid skin colour cosmetic composition

The term "fluid" is understood to mean, according to the invention, a composition which flows under its own weight at ambient temperature, as opposed to a "solid" composition. Preferably the colour cosmetic composition has a viscosity of less than 80,000 centipoise (cps, equivalent to 80 Pascal seconds (Pa.s)). More preferably the cosmetic composition has a viscosity of less than 70,000 cps (70 Pa.s). More preferably the cosmetic composition has a viscosity of less than 60,000 cps (60 Pa.s). More preferably the cosmetic composition has a viscosity of less than 50,000 cps (50 Pa.s). More preferably the cosmetic composition has a viscosity of less than 40,000 cps (40 Pa.s). More preferably the cosmetic composition has a viscosity of less than 30,000 cps (30 Pa.s). In all of the embodiments discussed above, viscosity is measured at 23 °C.

The cosmetic composition present within the container of the present invention has a viscosity of at least 10,000 cps (10 Pa.s). Preferably the cosmetic composition present within the container of the present invention has a viscosity of at least 12,000 cps (12 Pa.s). More preferably the cosmetic composition present within the container of the present invention has a viscosity of at least 14,000 cps (14 Pa.s). More preferably the cosmetic composition present within the container of the present invention has a viscosity of at least 16,000 cps (16 Pa.s). More preferably the cosmetic composition present within the container of the present invention has a viscosity of at least 18,000 cps (18 Pa.s). More preferably the cosmetic composition present within the container of the present invention has a viscosity of at least 20,000 cps (20 Pa.s). More preferably the cosmetic composition present within the container of the present invention has a viscosity of at least 22,000 cps (22 Pa.s). More preferably the cosmetic composition present within the container of the present invention has a viscosity of at least 23,000 cps (23 Pa.s). More preferably the cosmetic composition present within the container of the present invention has a viscosity of at least 24,000 cps (24 Pa.s). More preferably the cosmetic composition present within the container of the present invention has a viscosity of at least 25,000 cps (25 Pa.s). In all of the embodiments discussed above, viscosity is measured at 23 °C.

Viscosity is a measure of its resistance to gradual deformation by shear stress or tensile stress, where a liquid with a greater viscosity has a greater resistance to gradual deformation (and in an informal sense is“thicker”) than a liquid with a lesser viscosity. The skilled person would be well aware of how to determine the viscosity of a given liquid. A suitable method for measuring viscosity is presented in Example 1.

The skilled person would appreciate that it is very difficult to predict droplet reproducibility based on the viscosity of a liquid and the orifice size, and so, when developing a pigment drop composition would instead look to examples in the art where droplet reproducibility is achieved. The skilled person would, prior to this application, therefore predict that liquids with a low viscosity, such as eye drops, provide a high level of droplet reproducibility, whilst liquids with a high viscosity, such as ketchup, provide a low level of droplet reproducibility (in this regard the skilled person would be aware that, with the example of ketchup in a flexible wall container, a high level of force needs to be applied to the wall of the bottle in order to push the liquid out, and it is common for this force to result in either no ketchup being dispensed or an undesirably high amount of ketchup being dispensed). This is why, in the case of the high-pigment formulations of the present invention, it is particularly surprising that a high level of viscosity, together with a relatively smaller orifice size, is required in order to produce droplet reproducibility.

The term“skin” is understood to mean a composition suitable for application to the skin or to the lips, in particular the skin of the face, neck and decolletage.

The term“colour cosmetic” is understood to mean a composition comprising pigments, which are pulverulent substances intended to bring a color and an aesthetic effect to the skin to which it is applied. Preferably the colour cosmetic composition present within the container of the present invention will be a cosmetic composition for making up the skin of the face, such as a pigment drop or a concealer.

The colour cosmetic composition present within the container of the present invention comprises at least 20% of one or more pigments. In one embodiment, the fluid skin cosmetic composition comprises at least 22% of one or more pigments, preferably at least 24% of one or more pigments, more preferably at least 26% of one or more pigments, more preferably at least 27% of one or more pigments. In one embodiment, the fluid skin cosmetic composition comprises no more than 40% of one or more pigments.

By“pigments”, it is necessary to include white or colored, mineral or organic particles (nacre type), insoluble in an aqueous solution, and intended to color and/or to opacify the resulting film. Mention may be made, as inorganic pigments which can be used in the invention, of titanium, zirconium or cerium oxides, as well as oxides of zinc, iron or chromium, ferric blue, manganese violet, ultramarine blue and chromium hydrate. Preferably, the composition of the invention comprises at least titanium oxides and iron oxides. According to one particular embodiment, the composition of the invention comprises at least coated iron oxides and/or coated titanium oxides, preferably coated with aluminum stearoyl glutamate or perfluoroalkyl phosphate.

According to another particular embodiment, the composition present in the container of the present invention comprises at least titanium oxides, preferably titanium dioxide sold under the name Flamenco Summit Gold Y30D by BASF Personal Care Ingredients (INCI name: Mica (and) titanium dioxide) and/or titanium dioxide coated with perfluoroalkyl phosphate, in particular sold under the name PF 5 T1O2 A 100 by Daito Kasei Kogyo (INCI name: titanium dioxide (and) C9 to C15 fluoroalcohol phosphate) and coated or uncoated iron oxides.

The term "nacres" is understood to mean colored particles of any shape, iridescent or otherwise, in particular produced by certain shells in their shells or else synthesized and which exhibit an effect of color by optical interference.

Examples of nacres include nacreous pigments such as titanium mica coated with an iron oxide, mica coated with bismuth oxychloride, titanium mica coated with chromium oxide, nacreous pigments based on bismuth oxychloride. They may also be mica particles on the surface of which are superimposed at least two successive layers of metallic oxides and / or organic coloring matter.

According to a particular embodiment, the dyestuffs are inorganic pigments chosen from titanium oxides, iron oxides and mixtures thereof.

Of course, those skilled in the art will be careful to select any complementary compounds and/or their quantity in such a way that the advantageous properties intrinsically attached to the composition present in the container of the present invention and its packaging and distribution with the device according to the invention do not are not, or substantially not, altered by the proposed addition.

Unless otherwise stated, the values in the above examples are expressed as % by weight based on the total weight of the composition.

Methods

In a further aspect, the present invention provides a method of converting a skincare composition into a colour cosmetic composition comprising dispensing one to five drop(s), preferably one to three drops, from the container of the present invention onto an amount of skincare composition suitable for application to one or more of the skin regions selected from the list consisting of (a) one or more specific parts of the face; (b) the face as a whole; (c) the neck; and (d) the decolletage.

In a further aspect, the present invention provides a method of altering the colour of a colour cosmetic composition comprising dispensing one to five drop(s), preferably one to three drop(s), from the container of the present invention onto an amount of colour cosmetic composition suitable for application to one or more of the skin regions selected from the list consisting of (a) one or more specific parts of the face; (b) the face as a whole; (c) the neck; and (d) the decolletage.

With respect to these methods, the skincare composition is a composition that does not comprise any coloured (non-white) pigments. Thus skincare composition are generally white or clear in appearance. Such skincare compositions may be used to moisturise the skin, to treat or prevent blemishes such as acne, to improve skin health or to reduce the signs of ageing. Such skincare compositions include sunscreen formulations, serums, moisturisers (including emollients such as lotions, sprays, creams and ointments), oils and face masks.

By contrast, the colour cosmetic composition discussed above (i.e. the colour cosmetic composition not present in the container) is a formulation that comprises coloured pigments. These compositions may comprise skincare actives as well. Such colour cosmetic compositions include foundations, concealers, BB creams, CC creams, DD creams, blushers, bronzers, highlighters and primers.

The number of drops dispensed will vary based on the level of coverage the consumer desires, whether the drops are dispensed onto a skincare composition or a colour cosmetic composition (generally more drops will be dispensed onto a skincare composition) and the quantity of skincare composition or of colour cosmetic composition the drops are being applied to.

The skilled person will understand that optional features of one embodiment or aspect of the invention may be applicable, where appropriate, to other embodiments or aspects of the invention.

There now follows by way of example only a description of the present invention with reference to the accompanying drawings, in which:

Figure 1 shows a longitudinal section of an example container of the present invention; and

Figure 2 shows the weight of high-pigment formulation droplets when dispensed from a tottle with a dispensing head comprising a circular dispensing orifice of 0.785 mm 2 containing either Formulation 1 (according to the present invention) or a benchmark formulation. The bars represent the range from the mean minus standard deviation to the mean plus standard deviation, with the middle line representing the mean.

EXAMPLES

Example 1 - Viscosity determination

The viscosity of Formulation 1 (comprising Aqua (Water), Caprylyl methicone, Caprylic/capric triglyceride, PEG-9 dimethicone, Bis-isobutyl PEG/PPG- l0/7dimethicone copolymer, Stearalkonium hectorite, Phenoxyethanol, Magnesium sulfate, Aluminum hydroxide, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Propylene carbonate, Xanthan gum, Methylparaben, PEG/PPG dimethylallylether, Ethylparaben, Tetrasodium EDTA, Tocopherol, Cl 77891 (Titanium dioxide), Cl 77492 (Iron oxides), Cl 77491 (Iron oxides) and Cl 77499 (Iron oxides), with a total pigment concentration of 28%) and a benchmark formulation (comprising an ingredient list equivalent to that of Formulation 1 and with a total pigment concentration of 25%) was determined. Viscosity as described in the present application is measured using a Brookfield LVDV-I Prime E viscometer plus Model G Laboratory Stand, equipped with LV Spindle 64. Viscosity measurements were obtained as follows:

1. Ensure the sample product has a temperature of 23 °C and that it is not aerated. Sample is presented in a 60ml capacity plastic container with a diameter of 35mm and a height of 70mm;

2. Before measurement, auto-zero the viscometer after switching on the unit by following the on-screen instructions with no spindle attached to the viscometer;

3. Select the spindle 64;

4. Select the revolution speed“12”. This will rotate the spindle at 12 revolutions per minute (rpm);

5. Carefully attach the spindle to the lower shaft of the viscometer;

6. Lower the spindle into the sample product until the fluid level is at the immersion groove on the spindle shaft by turning the height adjustment knob on the right hand side of the viscometer mounting bracket. Ensure that the spindle is not in contact with the sides or base of the sample container;

7. Press the“Timed Option” buttons;

8. Use the Up and Down arrows to select the“Timed Stop” option then press ’’Enter” to confirm;

9. Use the Up and Down arrows to select zero minutes, then press’’Enter” to confirm;

10. Use the Up and Down arrows to select 30 seconds , then press’’Enter” to confirm;

11. Press the“Motor On/Off’ button to begin the measurement;

12. The viscometer will display a countdown from 30 seconds, after which it will display the final viscosity measured; and

13. Record the viscosity reading.

Formulation 1 has a viscosity of 26,000 cps. By contrast, the benchmark formulation has a viscosity of 1,250 cps. Thus, Formulation 1 has a much high viscosity that falls within the scope of the present invention, whilst the benchmark formulation does not.

Example 2 - Variation in droplet weight

Formulation 1 and the benchmark formulation were sealed within a tottle with a dispensing head comprising a circular dispensing orifice of 0.785 mm 2 . Twenty droplets of formulation 1 and the benchmark formulation were expelled whilst the tottle was held in a substantially vertical, dispensing -head-down position. The weight of each of these droplets is presented in Table 1 below.

Table 1

Table 1 and Figure 2 show that a much more consistent droplet size is seen when a formulation according to the present invention is used. In particular, a decrease in the droplet weight standard deviation by more than a quarter is seen in Formulation 1 when compared to the Benchmark formulation. The increased variation of droplet size seen in the benchmark composition is a result of the tottle of the benchmark composition having an increased tendency to sporadically expel an unusually small quantity of formulation in one droplet. The sporadic release of such small droplets is undesirable as it is likely to be much less than a user needs.
