What is Gillette?

At the heart of men’s grooming for more than 100 years, Gillette understands that when men look good, they feel good and they perform well. This means that shaving & grooming plays an increasingly important role in a man’s day. With the number of men engaging in facial and body grooming on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, one thing is clear: men have carved out their own niche in the beauty industry and Gillette offers products specific to their needs.

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these Gillette stats come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
