Effective

The world-first Gillette Treo included three major design advancements. First was ergonomics: the Gillette Treo moved away from an inward facing stick handle to an outward-facing divot. Second was hygiene: a high quality blade that could be dispensed to minimise infection. The third was mobility: a built-in lubrication handle meant no more worrying about making difficult trips to the sink.

The Gillette Treo was distributed directly to caregivers, care homes, and hospitals across the U.S. and U.K.
