Shaving Gel Bars

'Remay' Produces an Innovative Egg-Shaped Solid Shaving Bar

— January 20, 2017 — Unique
As an alternative to shaving gel that's sold by the bottle, Remay produces a gel shaving bar in solid form. The bar itself is made with moisturizing coconut oil and tea tree, which soothe the skin to prevent nicks, bumps and uncomfortable razor burn. To use, it's as simple as wetting the gel bar and smoothing it over the skin to create a layer for the razor to easily glide over.

The ergonomic packaging for Remay was designed in a similar way to the way that deodorant is typically sold, with an applicator to easily dispense the product and protect it when not in use.

Whether they are looking to reduce the amount of packaging waste they create, save space or desire simple and highly portable personal care products, many consumers are turning to shampoos, serums, perfumes, toothpaste and even mouthwash in stick and bar forms.
Trend Themes
1. Solid Personal Care Products - The trend of personal care products in solid form, made possible through innovative formulas and packaging, offers opportunities for reducing waste and enhancing convenience for consumers.
2. Alternative Shaving Products - The trend of alternative shaving products, such as Remay's gel shaving bar, presents opportunities for disruption in the shaving industry by offering more environmentally-friendly and convenient options.
3. Ergonomic Packaging Design - The trend of ergonomic packaging design, as seen in Remay's applicator for their gel shaving bar, presents opportunities for companies to enhance convenience and hygiene for consumers.
Industry Implications
1. Personal Care - The personal care industry has the opportunity to continue innovating by developing more products in solid and bar forms for consumers looking for eco-friendly and convenient options.
2. Shaving - The shaving industry has the opportunity to disrupt traditional shaving methods and packaging by embracing alternative products like Remay's gel shaving bar.
3. Packaging Design - The packaging industry has the opportunity to work with companies like Remay to develop more ergonomic and hygienic packaging solutions for personal care products in solid form.
