Gillette Atra Plus, Refill Cartridges– The revolutionary and now classic Gillette two-blade shaving system, which immediately found world-wide popularity when it was introduced in the 1970s, is still available with Gillette Atra Plus, Refill Cartridges. With their innovative pivoting design and LubraStrip technology, these cartridges continue to provide a clean, smooth and comfortable shave. They are compatible with any Atra razor handle, ready to continue the Gillette tradition as a pioneer in shaving.
The advantages of using the two-blade razor cartridge is based on the physics and engineering of shaving. The researchers at Gillette discovered that hair reacts to shaving in a way they called "hysteresis," a process in which the first blade grips and extends a hair shaft, holding it in place so that the following blade can cut through it further down. Together, the two blades also double the contact points with the skin, distributing the pressure of shaving across a wider area, reducing the drag of the cutting edge and causing fewer nicks and cuts. The pivoting head, introduced for the first time in the Atra system, helps the blades glide over the contours of the skin, reducing irritation and helping to avoid missed areas. Infused with soothing and healing aloe, the LubraStrip adds to the comfortable shave that everyone has come to expect from the Atra system.
A Tradition of Innovation
For more than a century, Gillette has been famous for its leadership in shaving technology. Their pioneering two-blade cartridge system, introduced in 1976, offered the greatest advance in shaving efficiency and comfort since company founder King C. Gillette patented the safety razor more than seven decades earlier. The Atra shaving cartridge became an instant favorite, providing a close, smooth and safe shave. Even today, the Gillette Atra Plus, Refill Cartridges continue to serve the fans of this pioneering shaving system.
