Dry Surfaces Cause Friction
Moving one dry surface over another dry surface is tough.
Now imagine chalk pens – using a liquid. Writing with a chalk pen allows you to glide over the chalkboard surface and produces a smooth, sharp line.
And the secret to a smoother shave is no different. If the skin AND cartridge are well lubricated, the blades will glide to optimum effect.
Achieving a Lubricated Shave for Reducing Friction
But lubricating for a comfortable shave is more of a challenge. That’s why we developed the lubrication strip.
Your Razor’s Built-in Lubricant
The strip holds a formula with water-loving polymers called Polyethylene Glycols (PEGs) which are released from the strip with each shaving stroke. When these polymers come into contact with water, they swell, unfold and stretch along your skin, adding lubrication to your shave.
The effectiveness of the shaving cream can be diminished when we go over the same spot on our face more than once, over and over again, in an effort not to miss any hairs, with shaving cream having been wiped away. This leaves the skin less protected and can lead to shaving rash.
