A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11896110B2) discloses a feed out container designed for solid contained materials, particularly cosmetics. The container features a metal main body outer sleeve with a cylindrical inner member and an inner plate for holding the material. A metal lid body outer sleeve, along with a lid body inner sleeve made of a polyester series elastomer, creates a closed interior space.

The container also includes O rings for maintaining airtight seals between components, with options for different materials such as fluorine rubber.

Furthermore, the patent details various configurations and materials for the O rings, depending on the specific application of the container. It mentions the solid composition contained in the container, which typically includes water and a hydrocarbon, with a specific emphasis on cosmetics like lip products. The design of the inner member, with annular protrusions forming overhangs to create a recess, ensures the lid closed position is securely maintained. Overall, the patent highlights a specialized container structure that caters to the precise dispensing and preservation of solid cosmetic compositions, showcasing innovative features for efficient and hygienic product usage.
