Men’s grooming leaps forward with MicroTouch SOLO
WAYNE, N.J. — A new all-in-one razor has launched from MicroTouch, the maker of Tough Blade and MAX. The MicroTouch SOLO, the latest introduction from the company is an economically priced tool that combines razor, edger and trimmer functions together to tackle any kind of facial hair with effortless precision.
Unlike most razors, the SOLO shaves bi-directionally, in either up or down strokes. The three combs it contains, come with the ability to trim scruff or a beard in any way the user chooses. This shaving tool also edges precisely to give a clean, sharp edge to neck hair, sideburns, mustaches, goatees and more.
"We took a decade of learning from our razor and trimmer tools, and set out to create a single tool that can handle all of today's facial hair trends. SOLO lets men customize their look, their way, without breaking the bank," Andy Khubani, chief executive officer of Ideavillage Products Corp., and maker of MicroTouch, said. "And SOLO can be used anytime, anywhere because you don't need soap or water to get a fresh shave. It's truly revolutionary."
SOLO uses the finest German stainless-steel blades, housed on a pivoting head with a balanced and water-resistant handle for precision and contouring. It is also completely rechargeable and contains a battery life of 45 minutes. The razor is available for purchase at Amazon, Bed Bath and Beyond, CVS, Rite-Aid, Walgreens, Target and Walmart for the suggested retail price of $24.99.
