Gillette Launches New Fusion ProShield with Lubrication Before and After the Blades to Shield against Irritation

Gillette has made its best cartridge even better with a product scheduled to reach North American store shelves in late December with more global availability in January. The new Gillette Fusion® ProShield™ with lubrication before and after the blades shields against irritation during every shave – no matter how many shave strokes he takes. Guys have many grooming habits that they use to look their best. But guys are often in auto-pilot mode when doing these things and other typical activities throughout the day. Some auto-pilot behaviors for guys may include puffing up their chest when feeling provoked, stroking their facial hair when thinking, sucking in their gut when seeing an attractive person and taking a surprising number of strokes every time they shave. When it comes to shaving on auto-pilot, guys often re-stroke over the same area without knowing it, wiping away the shave gel and continuing the shave without the needed protection. However, shaving over the same spot without lubrication can cause skin irritation, redness and bumps that keep guys from looking and feeling their best. That’s why Gillette developed Fusion ProShield, engineered to proactively shield against irritation, with a new ProShield Lubrication Bar before the blades in addition to the Lubrastrip after the blades, while still delivering incredible closeness. New Product Features: New ProShield Lubrication Bar before the blades, in addition to the Lubrastrip after the blades, shields from irritation. With all of the Great Features of Gillette’s Most Advanced ProGlide Blade Cartridges: thinnest, finest blade edges with less tug and pull; Gillette’s most advanced blade coating; Blade Stability Bar maintains optimal blade spacing for exceptional comfort; MicroComb to help guide stubble to the blades; Precision Trimmer for accurate edging. On its FlexBall Technology Handle: FlexBall handle with innovative pivot to respond to facial contours for maximum contact. Two Varieties Available are Standard (Yellow) and Chill with Cooling Technology (Blue). And, ProShield blade cartridges fit on all Fusion and ProGlide handles. Limited edition pre-orders of the Gillette Fusion ProShield will be available for purchase at and at food, drug and mass merchandise stores throughout the United States starting on December 21, 2015. Gillette Fusion ProShield razors will be available for mass purchase through Gillette Shave Club and other retail stores starting in late January 2016 for a suggested retail price of $9.49 for the Standard and Chill varieties. Four pack replacement cartridges will also be available in Standard and Chill for a suggested retail price of $22.49.

Hindustan Unilever and Gillette Settle 6-Year-Old Trademark Dispute Out of Court

Ending a long legal battle, Hindustan Unilever and Gillette Company have settled a trademark dispute over 7'O Clock label, with or without the device of Sun, out of court amicably. HUL had locked horns with Gillette, saying its Sun or Sunlight mark series will be affected by latter's 7'O Clock label with Sun device. Under the settlement agreement, Gillette, the registered owner of the mark, will amend the specifications of goods under 7'O Clock label to perfumes, cosmetic products related to shaving, non-medicated toilet preparation for use before, during and after shaving, dentifrices, deodorants for personal use, anti-perspirants and depilatory preparations and materials. After reaching the settlement, both the companies approached the Intellectual Property Appellate Board (IPAB) informing about the settlement. HUL had filed an appeal before IPAB against the order passed by the deputy registrar of trademarks, Mumbai, which granted the trademark 7'O Clock to Gillette in Class 3, dismissing its opposition in 2009. Ever since both have been fighting the case at the tribunal. Class 3 includes perfumery, essential oils, cosmetics, hair lotions and dentifrices, among others.
