Every woman old enough to remove hair knows the Wilkinson Sword Intuition. It is a product which has been launched on the women shaver market because it is a market which is strongly expanding nowadays and represents potential profits for producers: it became as competitive as the masculine market. As its name tells us, the shaver has been created by the company Schick-Wilkinson, a subsidiary of Energizer, being more than 200 years old, proof of its efficiency and its expertise in swords since 1772.

Currently, the Wilkinson Intuition has a direct competitor, Venus, produced by the biggest company on the market Gillette (subsidiary of Procter & Gamble).

Therefore consumers, who are in majority women, expect this product to be sweet and pleasant. To satisfy consumers' expectations, Wilkinson has created three products in this range. Sensitive: The soap is enhanced by Aloe Vera and by E vitamin, to respect sensitive skins it is without scent. [...]

[...] Shick-Wilkinson Gillette Bic blades) blades) blades) Quattro for women Soleil scent/soleil blades) Bold type: disposable shavers also known as one-piece shavers Underlined type: disposable and systems The Wilkinson Sword Intuition has a competitive advantage because it offers a skin conditioning solid, a soap which make your skin softer after shaving. However, the soap and blades must be changed at the same time (it is a package). The other shavers offer lubrifying bands, or aloe vera strips which do not really smooth the skin. [...]
