Abstract (en)

A container (2) contains the product and an applicator (10) is provided with a application element (11) and a drying part (3 having a deformable resilient wall passed through by a slot (7) for passage of the application element and defining drying lips (20). The deformable wall is able to take, under the axial force exerted by the applicator, different first and second configurations during the introduction and the withdrawal of the applicator. The initial shape of the resilient wall is chosen s that the drying lips are applied with different forces on the applicator during its introduction and withdrawal.

Abstract (fr)

Dispositif (1) de conditionnement et d'application d'un produit, notamment un produit cosmétique, comportant un récipient (2) pour contenir ledit produit, un applicateur (10) muni d'un élément d'application (11) et un organe d'essorage (3) présentant une paroi élastiquement déformable traversée par au moins une fente (7) servant au passage de l'élément d'application (11) et définissant des lèvres d'essorage (20), caractérisé par le fait que ladite paroi élastiquement déformable (6) est apte à prendre, sous l'effet d'une contrainte axiale exercée par l'applicateur (10), une première et une deuxième configurations différentes respectivement lors de l'introduction et du retrait de l'applicateur (10) et par le fait que ladite paroi élastiquement déformable (6) est réalisée avec une forme initiale non plane au repos et en l'absence d'applicateur (10), cette forme initiale étant choisie de telle manière que les lèvres d'essorage (20) s'appliquent avec des forces différentes sur l'applicateur (10) respectivement lors de son introduction et de son retrait, en raison des déformations subies par ladite paroi élastiquement déformable (6) pour passer de sa forme initiale à l'une desdites configurations. <IMAGE>
