Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0158411A2] Antiperspirant products comprise a dispensing container for a soft solid having a narrow aperture through which its contents can be dispensed. The contents comprise a particulate antiperspirant active suspended in a water-immiscible liquid which has a refractive index that differs from that of the antiperspirant active by preferably not more than 0.08. By controlling the liquid and solid phase refractive indexes to within such a difference, it is possible to dispense a ribbon of soft solid through the narrow aperture which has a translucent appearance, even if the gross formulation within the dispenser is opaque. Particularly desirably, the refractive indexes differ by at least 0.01 or 0.02 to 0.06, in order to additionally avoid formulation constraints that would apply in respect if the liquid and suspended active had to be exactly matched.
