Schick expands portfolio with new disposable razors for men, women

SHELTON, Conn. — Schick, an Energizer Personal Care brand, is expanding the Schick Hydro franchise of razors with the launch of new Schick Hydro 5 disposables and Schick Hydro Silk disposables.

Introduced in 2010, the Schick Hydro razor offered the first-of-its-kind technology. Available in three- and five-blade options, Schick Hydro utilizes technology including skin guards, a flip trimmer on the five-blade razor, an ergonomic handle and a hydrating gel reservoir to provide hydration throughout each shave. In 2012 the Schick Hydro Power Select, a powered wet shave razor, became available on the market offering a major advancement in men's grooming.  The brand expanded with the launch of Schick Hydro Silk for women, a razor built upon the technology of the Schick Hydro brand. Using water-activated moisturizing serum, the Schick Hydro Silk razor hydrates skin to help replenish moisture shaving can take away.

With the introduction of the disposables line, Schick Hydro and Schick Hydro Silk promises to continue to innovate the category. These disposable razors hydrate skin throughout each shave and help protect skin from irritation. Schick Hydro 5 Disposables and Schick Hydro Silk Disposables come with a money-back guarantee and provide a shave that feels like a brand new disposable each time, the company stated.
