Introduced in 2010, the Schick Hydro® razor revolutionized the men's shaving
category, offering first-of-its-kind technology designed to deliver smooth,
refreshing shaves. Available in three- and five-blade options, Schick Hydro®
utilizes technology including Skin Guards, a Flip Trimmer on the five-blade
razor, an ergonomic handle and a Hydrating Gel Reservoir to provide a blast of
hydration throughout each shave. In 2012 the Schick Hydro Power Select™, the
only custom powered wet shave razor, became available on the market offering a
major advancement in men's grooming with high-tech comfort control for each
day's shave. The brand expanded with the launch of Schick Hydro Silk® for
