Gillette Upgrades Iconic MACH3®

CINCINNATI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Gillette (NYSE:PG), the world’s leading grooming brand, today announced
upgrades to its original MACH3 razor in North America beginning this
month. These changes mark the first product upgrade to the original

provide a more comfortable shave. Subsequent upgrades will focus on the
razor’s structure to further enhance the consumer experience.

“Gillette was founded on the notion of continuously improving the
shaving experience for guys – and our goal is to make the MACH3

day,” said John Mang, Gillette Brand Franchise Leader, P&G. “With these
precision enhancements, our loyal customers will get an even more

Gillette MACH3 is one of the most iconic and trusted brands ever built
in the shaving category. In 1998, MACH3 set a new standard in shaving by
offering men the first shaving system with three progressively aligned
blades for a closer shave in fewer strokes with less irritation. Since
that time, it has become the #1 selling razor cartridge in the world –
and well over 55 million men globally shave with MACH3.

“This isn’t just about one change; we have even more technology upgrades
in store for our loyal users within the course of the next year,” Mang
continued. “This underscores our commitment to delivering an unbeatable
experience for consumers in every shaving segment, whether male or
female, systems or disposables – and at every price point – well into
the future.”
