for effective shaving!

1) Do it in the evening! Shaving can sometimes make the skin feel taut. So shave in the evening to soothe your skin during the night. If you go to the swimming pool or the beach, shave the night before to avoid any stinging. 2) Keep warm! Keep warm to avoid goose bumps which are not easy to shave over and can cause irritations. 3) Clean your skin! To avoid irritations, remember to clean the zones to be shaved with a cleansing and purifying gel. 4) Remember to exfoliate! Before you shave, it is recommended to exfoliate your skin with a glove or gel to remove any dead cells for a close, smooth shave. Repeat this operation several times a week to make your skin softer and avoid in-growing hairs. 5) Discover hot water! Hot water makes your skin more elastic and softens hairs, which maintains your razor longer. Wet your skin with hot water or shave under the shower. 6) Change your shaver! Remember to change your shaver regularly so that it is always clean and offers a smooth shave without having to press down.

7) Go over the top with gel! With a shaving gel, the shaver slides more easily over your skin, thus avoiding skin irritations. Use gel rather than normal soap. It's gentler for your skin. Spread the gel and leave it two minutes on your skin before shaving. 8) Cold water is compulsory! Rinse your legs with cold water to remove any excess gel. Cold water closes the pores and tones the skin. 9) Pamper your razor! Do not wipe your razor with a towel. Let it dry naturally in the air. 10) Moisturise! To optimise a smooth shave, apply an alcohol-free moisturising cream on your skin. 11) Bodyguard! After shaving your underarms, use an alcohol-free deodorant to avoid irritating your skin.

Since their launch in 1975, BIC® shavers are 100% manufactured in BIC® production units. BIC thus guarantees quality throughout the production process. To manufacture a shaver meeting BIC® high quality standards, 12 operations are necessary and 23 different checks are made.



nt nent co

Visual and dimensional checks as well as quality tests are carried out on blades, moulded parts and end products throughout the production process.

Precision equipment
The plastic and dye used to make the shaver parts are previously mixed then injection-moulded with extreme precision. The handle is moulded in a bi-injection process combining two materials: one for the rigid handle and the other for the grip.

Quality and safety
The BIC Quality Department permanently assesses global production. It thus ensures that, in each production unit, the same quality and safety requirements are met. This process applies to both men and women’s shavers. BIC® shaver packaging is optimised to use minimum raw materials while protecting the product.
