ABOUT VENUS

A Century in the Making

A CENTURY IN THE MAKING

Back in 1901, King Gillette invented a safety razor that completely changed the way men shaved—and led to a new company dedicated to smooth skin. One hundred years later, that company introduced the original Gillette Venus razor, forever transforming women’s shaving.

RAISING THE BAR

Although Venus has a deep heritage within the Gillette family, this was no men’s razor colored pink! Designed especially for the way a woman shaves, the Venus Original set our standard for women’s razors. It navigated feminine curves with a rounded, pivoting head. It felt natural in a woman’s hand, with a contoured, Soft Grip® handle. It protected against nicks and cuts with protective cushions. And it made short work of shaving with individually adjusting blades. Every razor we’ve created since has been designed especially for the way a woman shaves. With such a passionate understanding of what should go into a woman’s razor, it’s no surprise that we’re the No. 1 female shaving brand in the world! Designed especially for the way a woman shaves, the Venus Original set our standard for women’s razors.
