On Monday, Shares of The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG), gained 0.20% to $75.97.
The Procter & Gamble Company According to recent studies, most guys take about 170 strokes every time they shave, and 120 of them are re-strokes over the same area of the face after the initial strokes have wiped away most of the protective shave gel. Despite all of the advances in blade technology, many guys still experience some irritation, largely due to these re-strokes. Instead of expecting guys to change how they shave, Gillette® [NYSE:PG] has made its best cartridge even better with a product planned to reach North American store shelves in late December with more global availability in January. The new Gillette Fusion® ProShield™ with lubrication before and after the blades shields against irritation during every shave – no matter how many shave strokes he takes.
Guys have many grooming habits that they use to look their best. But guys are often in auto-pilot mode when doing these things and other typical activities throughout the day. Some auto-pilot behaviors for guys may comprise puffing up their chest when feeling provoked, stroking their facial hair when thinking, sucking in their gut when seeing an attractive person and taking a surprising number of strokes every time they shave.
When it comes to shaving on auto-pilot, guys often re-stroke over the same area without knowing it, wiping away the shave gel and ongoing the shave without the needed protection. However, shaving over the same spot without lubrication can cause skin irritation, redness and bumps that keep guys from looking and feeling their best. That’s why Gillette developed Fusion ProShield, engineered to proactively shield against irritation, with a new ProShield Lubrication Bar before the blades in addition to the Lubrastrip after the blades, while still delivering incredible closeness.
The Procter & Gamble Company, together with its auxiliaries, manufactures and sells branded consumer packaged products worldwide. It operates through five segments: Beauty, Hair and Personal Care; Grooming; Health Care; Fabric Care and Home Care; and Baby, Feminine and Family Care.
