An electric shaver is a device used for shaving and removal of unwanted hair on the body. The electric shaver has rotating or oscillating blades behind a metal guard, which helps to remove hair with the most convenient means of shaving. Electric shavers usually come in the rotary shaver and foil shavers. The rotary shaver has one or more round cutting heads on its faceplate with blades rotating under a grid. The foil electric shaver has two or more cutting blades arranged on top, which move to and fro in a vibrating mode under a foil with small holes that cut and catch the hairs.
Convenient and easy usage in a more clean and precise shave has propelled the demand for electric shavers worldwide. Electric shavers have greater leverage over conventional razors in terms of skin-friendliness as well as safety.
Due to the growing network of e-Commerce across the globe, grooming products have witnessed an increased shift in sales from offline to online platforms. Various offers and discounts available online for grooming products have also propelled sales, thereby boosting the electric shavers market. Consumers can also evaluate and compare product features, and prices on e-Commerce sites, thereby serving as a more convenient method of shopping. Due to the quick facial hair cutting capabilities of trimmers and clippers, they are more popular among the youth. Trimmers have a protective covering that avoids direct contact of the skin with blades and have sets of blades that oscillate from one end to the other, thereby preventing cuts.
