Gillette exist in Pakistan as far as i can go back, what's so special about it they have been manufacturing their razor blades in Pakistan since ages. Their first factory was in hub industrial area just outside karachi.

Nothing special for you but is for a BD, a homegrown company producing goods for P&G. It increases our industrial capacity, increases employment and incountry value addition and perhaps in the future will add another item to the export basket.

Cool , now I can shave my balls with a Bangladeshi made razor
Why on Earth would you use a cartridge razor to shave your balls? :blink:

Metal grilled electric groomer all the way.This type does not trap skin or hair so you will feel nothing when shaving. Don't even need to use the head attachments when shaving as opposed to trimming.

7'O Clock Razor blades were also made in Bangladesh since ages, more recently cartridge types (Samah Industries in Tejgaon).


What is different is that cartridge type products are being manufactured in very large scale (OEM contract) for P&G India, which will probably export them worldwide, given low cost of production in Bangladesh, in addition to meeting local demand.

I haven't tried beard butter. So far I only have organic shea butter, from Ghana, that I've used.
right on the money... that's good for beard just add essential oil for scent
You have to be very careful using them though, they're so sharp you'll peel off your skin if you aren't careful.
this is cons with them... i've nicked myself many times because i was tired and not paying attention

I read a research paper some years ago that shaving gel/creams has been linked to reduction in fertility. Sperms are deformed and reduced motility and count. Linked to some chemicals that are used to manufacture the gels
I can’t remember what chemicals it was exactly. I stopped using since then

I believe it is Lavender oil and tea tree oil - common ingredients in gels/creams. It reduces testosterone and increases estrogen. Chemically proven to enlarge mammary glands in boys/girls. Hormone disruptor.

Be careful !

This is an NIHS study,

Well this is part of job generation in a country. People's livelihoods depend on this sort of thing and the scale of the effort is what differentiates the story.

This would not normally be a big deal - razors have been made in East Pakistan since the early forties, like I mentioned earlier, but this is connecting it with the supply chain of a conglomerate called P&G. PRAN is also a supplier to other multinational conglomerates as well namely Coca-Cola, Del Monte Foods, Dollarama, Engel etc.

These are essential oils basically. No this wasn’t it, some synthetic compounds I’ll have to dig it up again
