How did Gillette create a specialized shaving razor for others?

For those who have to ask others to shave their faces, the Hanging razor is like a gift from God.

Gillette has been designing razors since the 1900s, but it is all for you to shave. But there are people who depend on others to do it for themselves: the elderly or disabled.

For those who take care of them, shaving someone is a stressful process when they have to control the blade on different shaving angles without accidentally injuring them.

In 2017, Gillette started her first Hanging and Razor test designed specifically to alleviate difficulties when shaving the face for others. 

Besides a razor blade, Treo also has a shaving gel canister that acts as a razor handle and allows the razor to better control the blade and minimize the possibility of misty shaving. 

For the elderly, who cannot shave anymore, it is a product that can help them keep a clean and clean appearance as their youth.

"In that situation, the ability to shave face is an important part of the dignity of a man." Matt Hodgson, the chief design engineer in Gillette's product development factory in the UK, said the lead designer of the Treo design. "It is what they have done throughout their lives."

Listen to user feedback

Hanging is an example of combining the best design of the company with feedback from Gillette users. While many of the company's advertising campaigns focused on the moment when his father taught his son how to shave, Gillette began receiving feedback from the social network about what would happen if the father could not shave. me too. 

And none of their razors were designed to answer that question.

In order to understand why it was difficult to shave others, Hodgson began shaving a colleague at the office. Unlike when shaving, it is difficult to know the force from your hand that is enough to cut the beard without accidentally cutting into someone else's skin. 

Not only that, if you have ever had trouble with areas that are hard to shave on your skin, try multiplying that several times when shaving for others.

Not only that, shaving for people who are old or disabled is very different from normal people: they often have to sit or lie in bed instead of the tap, meaning that it is difficult to get the water right next to the tongue. knife. It also means using normal shaving cream to make the blade quickly dirty.

In addition, because people who are shaved often sit or in a headrest position on something, the razor needs to hold the blade at different angles to shave the most closely.

Hodgson and his team developed five different prototypes within three months, taking them to nursing homes with dozens of test products for trial nurses to use, before making the final design.

Final design

To solve the problem of having to shave in places where there is no water, Hodgson has added a special protective plate which is designed specifically for the Indian market, where beard hair is often thicker and they have to tend to use less water when shaving. 

Thanks to this protective plate, the nurse can shave the whole face with just one razor blade, without having to remove the blades to shave first.

The handle of the Treo is also twice as big as usual and acts as a gel tube. This gel will make the skin cleaner without forming a foam like normal shaving cream. Moreover, Hodgson also adjusted the angle between the tip of the knife and the handle so that the shaver could grasp it like a pen or pencil, giving them better control.

In the fall of 2017, this final design began to be sent to nursing homes and individuals in the US and UK by Gillette as part of a pilot program. Even though the group focuses primarily on professional caregivers, they also want to know if their products are effective for people in different positions.

Anne Baker, a woman who participated in the trial, shaved her husband with Parkinson's about once a month, before important occasions that Hang was the answer to her apprehension when shaving her husband's face. She wished this product was present sooner when her father was older. 

"This will be a gift from God when he is too old and must be in a nursing home. He would have liked it. He always wanted a face to be shaved clean."

After receiving a lot of positive feedback from the test program, Gillette is beginning to sell a new type of razor to a limited number of customers through her website, to assess whether it should be sold in a mass-type razor. 

Hang this or not. "We know the razor market well, better than anyone," Hodgson said. "But this is a completely different market."

Laser razors do not need to be washed, do not need to spend 89 dollars

This extremely safe razor with face skin will help you avoid facial breakage when shaving.

Technology startups from Irvine, California, recently introduced a razor prototype using lasers. This unique razor called "Skarp", when exposed to facial skin, will "cut" the beard carefully and extremely safe, making it impossible to cut the face or burn. In addition, 

Skarp also prevents skin infections, because germs and bacteria that live only on the skin in damaged areas.

Compared to disposable razors, Skarp razors have many other benefits. With Skarp, you do not need to buy expensive replacement blades, shaving water or shaving foam also becomes unnecessary because the beard will be shaved clean without the use of strength, without pain, without skin. irritation. 

Skarp is also an environmentally friendly product: the disposable razor is made of plastic, and when thrown into the environment it will take hundreds of years to decompose itself. 

Did you know, every year in the world more than 2 billion razors and razor boxes are released? What a worrying number! 

Moreover, we also use a considerable amount of water just for shaving and washing razors. With Skarp, even washing after shaving is unnecessary!

Developers say that this laser razor can be used during bathing. The body of the knife is made of aluminum 6061, using 1 AAA battery for one month of continuous use. See how this razor works:

Morgan Gustavsson is involved in the development of this advanced razor. He is the author of IPL (high-intensity pulse light) technology in 1989, and today IPL is one of the most effective methods to remove hair on the body and treat skin diseases. 

The idea of a laser razor came to Gustavsson since 2001, but making such a device was too expensive at the time.

In 2009, scientists made a breakthrough in laser technology when laser beams could be used with the right wavelength to cut hairs and hair on the human body without damaging the skin.

In 2013, Gustavsson received the collaboration of Paul Binun. It was Paul who then perfected this amazing laser technology. The scientists found chromophore in all hair types - this particular group of atoms is responsible for producing hair color and absorbing electromagnetic radiation, regardless of the color and chemical composition of the hair.

They realized that using newly invented laser beams could remove hair, hair more effectively than any method currently used, and could apply to everyone, regardless of gender, race, or personal characteristics (allergies, skin irritation, ...).

Skarp is currently being raised on Kickstarter to conduct industrial-scale production.

The birth history of an electric shaver

You use a daily electric shaver, carry it on every travel or long day trip - but do you know how the electric shaver was born?

Since time immemorial, the bearded men have been known to shave and beard on their faces with hot water, soap, and a sharp blade - indeed very elaborate and time-consuming, or even scratching their faces by knives Shave too sharp. 

By the twentieth century, people had achieved outstanding technological advances in many areas of life, and coincidentally when two inventors living on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean had found a way to help men. 

The world has a smooth face that needs razors, soap or hot water.

Jacob Schick was born in 1877 to a German immigrant family but later grew up in New Mexico, and joined the army in 1898 when the Spanish-American war broke out. 

In 1905, when he was holding the rank of lieutenant, Jacob was sent to Fort Gibbon in Alaska to participate in the construction of information routes during the next five years. 

Military discipline was absorbed into Jacob's flesh and blood, and despite poor living conditions, he always kept a clean, neat shave according to the warrant's rules and regulations. And this is also the source of two of Jacob's most famous inventions.

When the first world war broke out, Jacob Schick was sent to Europe and continued to serve as a lieutenant colonel and retired. At this time he had time to pursue a passion. 

His first invention was related to a problem that had kept him very inhibited during his military years in Alaska: The low temperature of this region made his fingers lose sensitivity, not easy. to fit the blade into the shaving table.

Now by applying the working principle of the automatic rifle he learned during the war in Europe, Schick has successfully developed and patented the type of razor with an alternative semi-automatic system the blade (packaged in clamps like bullet clamps), and in 1925 he founded the company that produced the razor. 

Three years later, he invented the first electric razor in the world, thereby solving another problem in Alaska - lack of hot water.

The use of this type of electric razor is quite complicated, requiring users to use both hands: one to hold the motor and one to hold the trimmer (connected to the motor by the elastic shaft). 

It was mass-produced in 1931, and although it was quite laborious to operate and was born in the midst of the Great Depression, electric razors were incredibly successful: over one million units were sold 2 years for $ 25 / unit, equivalent to $ 367.27 in 2016!

Meanwhile, on the other side of the ocean, a dry electric razor was introduced and improved. In 1930, the Dutch company Philips in Eindhoven was trying to actively seek new niche markets for consumer electronics. 

One of the company's sales representatives who returned from the United States in 1937 brought dozens of household electrical appliances. Philips has done thorough research on all these products in order to better improve them and sell those "upgrade" items.

Among the technologies that Philips has obtained from abroad are Schick brand razors. It quickly caught the attention of Alexander Horowitz's radio development department. 

He decided to abandon the mechanism of turning rotational motion into linear motion, which was very cumbersome, and this allowed the combination of an electric motor (taken from a bike's dynamo generator) and a cut-in block a shell.

In 1939, Philips introduced the first rotor electric shaver to the world. Rotor electric shavers were quickly received, not only men but also women were very favored by Philips when selling their sister's shaving products with elegant designs, greatly simplifying many stages. beauty and hair removal.

Initially, the electric razor had only one blade, then it was added to two, and three blades to increase cleaning efficiency. 

Since then, Philips has sold more than 600 million electric rotor razors and 2 billion shaving heads.
