The Development of Men’s and Women’s Norelco Shavers

The many lines of Philips Norelco shavers have come a long way from there beginnings to incorporate lots of technology and features to provide a closer and more comfortable shaving experience.  In late 1940’s, Norelco was able to sell the 1st single headed rotary shaver in the USA when Gillette, known for its disposable razors dominated the industry in shaving. Norelco’s main rivals for electric shavers were the Sunbeam, Schick and the Remington shavers at that time. Now, the Norelco shavers have evolved from the designs of the early 20th century to include electric shavers for both men and women.  Even with these developments, Norelco products still use the patented rotating head designs that are known for their maneuverability and superiority among other oscillating heads on the market.
