Why do I have to replace the shaving heads after a while?


Every year, your blades travel the height of Mt. Everest...49 times! After such a workout, even the best materials can lose their edge. Retain your razor's peak performance — replace the heads once a year.

Philips shaving heads are made of the highest quality steel because they are in regular contact with your skin. However, even the best materials become worn out with regular use. Even if an immediate decrease in performance is not noticeable, your shaving head will gradually become less sharp and precise. That is why we recommend that you replace your shaving head every 12 months.

The ideal replacement frequency depends on your shaving frequency and the thickness of your facial hair.
