A safety razor is a shaving implement with a protective device positioned between the edge of the blade and the skin. The initial purpose of these protective devices was to reduce the level of skill needed for injury-free shaving, thereby reducing the reliance on professional barbers. Plastic disposable razors and razors with replaceable blade attachments are in common use today. Razors commonly include one to five cutting edges, but sometimes up to seven edges.
The differences between this razor and the others are basically comfort, steadiness and feel. Safety razor blades currently are produced in large scale sector only. There are many types of blades in the market, for e.g. Single double edge, sandwiched and daily consumption, the industry provides good scope for investment.
The razor blades are mostly being manufactured by the foreign firms in India, although Indian firms are also in the field but their product is not up to the mark. Therefore, high quality razor blades have ample scope in Indian market. Thus due to demand it is a good opportunity for entrepreneurs to invest.
