The True Cost Of Shaving
Most men take don’t enjoy the process of shaving. Any guy who shaves knows, buying razors at the supermarket and replacing them can be expensive. Keeping a clean-shaven face is an obligation that’s necessary for maintaining a professional appearance at work and maybe to keep his other half happy. Having to pay an exorbitant amount to keep up with this chore is what fuels the idea that razors, like printer ink are one of life’s biggest rip offs.
Creating razor blades is an intricate, complicated, expensive process with high barriers to entry, the few companies that make blades have an advantage. Without many competitors, they’re able to charge higher prices. Historically the companies that have known how to make razor blades have been able to charge people vastly different prices for razor blades than the actual cost.
