The Gillette Company was founded in 1901 by King C. Gillette whom had the goal of making razors. Here we are 100 years later, one can say he succeeded in his mission. The brand Gillette is known for its innovation in the art of shaving because the products are always at the forefront. It was Gillette who invented and patented the double-sided razor blade and "twist to open" function that involves removing the razor head from the handle to change the razor blade. It had never been that easy to change the blade on a razor. This was to become the feature of all Gillette's razors.
Gillette grew over the years into a global leader for products under various brands such as Braun and Oral-B. But in 2005 the company was purchased by Procter & Gamble which then became the world's largest personal care and household products.
Over the years they expanded their range from razors for men and women to shave gel, deodorant and shower gel. Their slogan has always been "the best a man can get" and the flagship product is the Gillette Fusion ProGlide, a razor designed for men. It has a built-in comb for a closer shave and together with thin, fine blades it'll be minimal resistance resulting in less irritation to the skin after shaving.
Today Gillette offers products for both men and women and Fusion ProGlide and Venus are two of the most common standards for for personal hygiene in most households around the world. But it's not only the common man who uses Gillette, there are several well-known people among users and ambassadors for the brand - such as Roger Federer, Thierry Henry and Tiger Woods. In early 2014 Lionel Messi was announced as the new ambassador.
