Description

“Usage of wet razors and blades is highest among women aged 35-44 and those who buy beauty products from The Body Shop, specialist beauty retailers and department stores. There is potential for these retailers to focus more heavily on a whole body category, with products ranging from hair removal to body sculpting, moisturising and fragrancing.”

– Michelle Strutton, Senior Consumer Analyst
