The granted patent (Publication Number: US11910904B2) discloses an innovative applicator system for containing and dispensing a cosmetic substance. The system comprises a container with a cavity, a dispensing mechanism with an elongated body and flexible region, and an applicator with an interior cavity. The dispensing mechanism allows for a predetermined quantity of cosmetic substance to be dispensed onto the external surface of the applicator. The flow path for the cosmetic substance is defined by specific components of the system, ensuring controlled dispensing.

Furthermore, the patent claims detail additional features of the applicator system, such as the construction of the orifice restrictions from liquid silicone rubber material, the presence of one-way valves in the orifice restrictions, and the method of dispensing a predetermined quantity of approximately 10 microliters of cosmetic substance. The system operates by engaging the flexible region of the dispensing mechanism to dispense the cosmetic substance and forming a vacuum to draw in the subsequent quantity. These claims highlight the unique design and functionality of the applicator system, providing a precise and controlled application of the cosmetic product for users.
