In 2006, the world saw for the first time a new development in razor blade technology, an innovation of Proctor and Gamble’s Gillette. In the same year the rival company, Schick released its Quattro product giving rise to controversies of their failing market sales and desperate move which Gillette denied. The Gillette Fusion blades were introduced on September 14 of that year and were the first five-bladed razor, beating off the Quattro razor with its four-blades.
The blades are 30 percent closer together than all the previous products of Gillette. This gives men a greater shaving precision than any other Gillette product. Gillette Fusion blades also feature a smooth coating on its blades. These blades produce a smooth distributing force that helps reduce skin pressure which lessens irritation and cuts. It also has a “Flexible Comfort Guard” which follows the contour of the face and this helps in shaving closer to the skin for a more comfortable shave. On the rear side of the cartridge is the Fusion’s “Precision Trimmer Blades”. The blades help reach some of the hard to shave areas like nose hairs. It also helps you shape your facial hair and shave side burns with precise accuracy.
The Gillette Fusion Blades have been in the male-grooming business for a long time and is said to have offered the best experience to men than any other products. Many other companies have made similar razors however market research shows that the Mach 3 and the Gillette Fusion lines are the most popular.
