Nowadays everyone knows their slogan: “Gillette, the best a man can get.” Gillette is a very popular shaving brand for men. The brand is known in the shaving industry for their innovative inventions and their rich history. This makes Gillette today perhaps the most well-known brand in all things shaving.
History of Gillette
In 1900, King C. Gillette had a revolutionary idea to make disposable blades so strong that highly trained scientists said it was impossible. But in 1901 King C. Gillette proved that this was indeed possible and came up with a groundbreaking first blade.
About 71 years later, Gillette brings the very first shaving system to the market with 2 blades instead of 1. About 5 years later, a rotating shaving head was added. That way your razor could follow the contours of your face and was still groundbreaking at this time. Not long after, Gillette came up with their new invention: the slide strip. Your knife was guided over your skin without effort.
From the year 2000, there are actually only innovative and innovative products on the market that made shaving more comfortable and easier time after time. Gillette has never been idle and is still committed to making your shave easier to this day.
