SHELTON, Conn., March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Edge® is changing the way men shave with the launch of Edge Body™ Shave Cream and Edge Ultimate™ Shave Gels. Known as the world's first-ever shave gel and the original anti-irritation agent, Edge shaving products are recognized for giving guys an edge in their grooming routines and in their lives. The brand's newest innovations are designed for the evolved grooming habits of the modern man, who cares about his skin, his body, and his individuality. Edge Body is the first men's shave cream designed specifically for the increasing trend of body grooming, and Edge Ultimate is a 6-in-1 shave gel designed for the modern man who wants to take care of his skin without spending extra time in front of the mirror.
"We know men's attitudes toward grooming are changing. Guys want to look their best, but they don't want to spend all day doing it or deal with skin irritation along the way," said Jeffrey C. Wolf, senior brand manager for Edge at Energizer Personal Care. "We created the Edge Body and Edge Ultimate products to help give men the opportunity to feel great and express their individual styles without sacrificing their skin or their time."
Edge Body Shaving Cream Helps Reduce Skin Irritation
Studies show that one in five men remove hair from their body, and nearly two-thirds of men suffer from skin irritation and bumps after body shaving*.

It has antioxidants, vitamin E, and aloe, so skin below the neck is protected from razor burn and irritation. With a convenient non-foaming formula, Edge Body shave cream won't wash off in the shower, which is where men are most likely to body shave*. It helps keep skin feeling smooth and comfortable with every shave, so men never have to choose between irritated skin and unwanted body hair. Edge Body shave cream is available in two refreshing formulations, Edge Renew™ and Edge Recharge™.
