Shaver: Philips or Braun?
In the life of every man comes the moment when he begins to shave. Someone does this every day, someone once a week, so everyone needs a razor.
The razor is a household appliance designed forhair removal. British scientists in a 20-year experiment found that a man who shaves every day, 70% less likely to stroke and gets more pleasure from sex (in an experiment involving 2,400 men from Wales).
Razors in the market are represented by dozens of manufacturers, but among them there are two main market players: Philips and Braun. We have to find out which of them produces the best razors.
Philips - the largest manufacturer of household appliances
Philips - one of the largest manufacturershousehold appliances in the world and the largest in Europe. Initially, for the benefit of the company worked a dozen people, and today - tens of thousands. Philips shavers are recognized worldwide by millions of users.
Features of Philips shavers
- Unique blade rotation system. Not surprisingly, it is this manufacturer that regularly presents innovative developments: the brand's asset is the Institute for Advanced Technology Research.
- Low energy consumption.
- The knives have the ability to self-sharpen.
- The razor has a three-dimensional surface (new models), with which the contours of the face are repeated with absolute accuracy.
- Most of the latest models are waterproof, they can be used under the shower.
The Institute of Personal Care isstudying the work of a razor in interaction with different types of skin. Specialists conduct tests and fix how the hairs are cut, what pressure the technician makes on the skin of the face, whether there is an interrelation with the elasticity of the skin and the result of the razor. The main task of the institute is testing and improving the technique of skin care.
The company also interacts with institutionsDermatology, identifying the needs of users and adapting the technique for them. Using a computer program, the number of hairs per 1 sq. cm, their length, stiffness, and a special device determines the action of the shaving head.
Phillips razors compete thanks to an innovative approach to development.
Most models use an environmentally friendly battery and have a voltage level system.
Braun - the manufacturer of technology for home, office and entertainment
The manufacturer regularly works on newclasses of goods. Over the past few years, new products account for about 60% of Braun's products. The main products that the company supplies to almost all countries of the world are electric shavers, epilators, electric toothbrushes, blenders, hairdryers.
Features of Braun razors
- The buyer has a choice: models with 1, 2, 3 shaving heads.
- There are built-in folding or retractable trim tabs.
- Virtually all models have a dual type of power: network and battery. But you can always get a model with one type of food, which will be much cheaper.
- The range includes compact (portable) models, convenient for travel.
All razors produced by Braun work ina certain direction (straight). The developers believe that this shaving method is more convenient and comfortable. The testing was carried out by an independent institute. The manufacturer claims that its razor allows you to capture the largest number of hairs.
Some Braun models use a uniquetechnology Sonic, which checks the density of bristles. The razor chooses the program and works less actively in those places where the density is lower. A smaller number of contacts can reduce the risk of irritation. Each grid consists of 1,064 holes that grasp the bristles at such an angle that the hair is removed from the first time. As a result, the skin does not interact with the shaving head, and the user gets perfectly smooth skin.
Most new models combine dry andwet shaving. It is also important to mention that Braun razors are water resistant. They can be lowered to a depth of 5 meters, after which they will continue to work properly. Using a razor with a self-cleaning system, the user will forever forget about the debilitating cleaning process after each shave.
Both manufacturers, Philips and Braun, can be consideredstandards in the manufacture of razors. But Braun cares not only about quality, but also about the aesthetic appeal of the product. There are a number of design solutions that make razors attractive. Philips pays attention to the convenience and practicality of the goods. Each of the two, under the comparison of brands, does not renounce its warranty obligations.
