Gillette is one of the 25 billion dollar grooming brands of Procter & Gamble.  These new grooming products are particularly designed for male body shaving. With the recent increase in male grooming habits, there is a growing demand for products designed specifically for the male population.

The company is also known for its impressive product development capabilities and marketing prowess. The company believes that continued demand for its brands and products is the key to future profitability.

In line with its marketing strategies, the company will release a series of "How To Shave" videos on the brands' YouTube page to promote the new products.
