By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Engineering -- COLGATE-PALMOLIVE COMPANY (New York, NY) has been issued patent number 9764885, according to news reporting originating out of Alexandria, Virginia, by VerticalNews editors.

The patent's inventor is Moskovich, Robert (East Brunswick, NJ).

This patent was filed on July 2, 2013 and was published online on September 19, 2017.

From the background information supplied by the inventors, news correspondents obtained the following quote: "The present invention relates to an oral care implement package and to a kit for an oral care implement package.

"It is known to supply an oral care implement, such as a toothbrush, in a package, such as a blister package. Typically the package acts to protect the oral care implement during its transport to a point of sale, during its storage at the point of sale, and during its storage at a consumer's location prior to use. Often such a package also includes various indicia for a consumer to identify the source of the oral care implement, its features and its advantages.

"Sometimes special or advantageous features of an oral care implement, such as a toothbrush, are small relative to the size of the overall implement, and might not be as visible to a consumer as the manufacturer of the oral care implement would wish. Also, if the special or advantageous features of the implement are not clearly identifiable, the consumer might not be able to easily distinguish the oral care implement from other similar oral care implements, which could result in the consumer purchasing an oral care implement that is not best suited to their needs.

"There is a need for an oral care implement package for helping a consumer to view small features of an oral care implement within the package."

Supplementing the background information on this patent, VerticalNews reporters also obtained the inventor's summary information for this patent: "An embodiment of the present invention provides an oral care implement package, comprising: a front panel, at least a portion of the front panel being transparent; a backer connected to the front panel with a space for receiving an oral care implement being provided between the backer and the front panel; and a magnifying mirror facing the space and visible through the portion of the front panel, the magnifying mirror being in contact with the backer, the front panel, or both the backer and the front panel.
