Panasonic's premium range of revolutionary Four Arc Blade shavers feature a new fourth finishing outer foil added to the conventional three-blade foil. The finishing foil lifts short, flat hairs from their roots and shaves them close without damaging the skin. Using three-dimensional pattern processing, Panasonic has created a honey-comb shaped foil with protruding and sunken areas as thin as 41Âµm, making shaving under the chin and throat easier.
The increased surface area in contact also reduces pressure on the skin, thereby easing skin irritation while providing smooth and efficient performance. The revolutionary Multi-fit Arc foils are designed to glide evenly over the skin for a quick, once-over shave, while the finishing foil closely shaves difficult to reach whiskers under the chin and jaw line.
Another important feature of the Four Arc Blade is the Omni directional flexible pivoting head which rocks up and down and side to side following the contours of the face to provide a smooth and comfortable shaving experience.
Panasonic's shavers are ergonomically designed to give a close, comfortable shave for every user. The full range has also been designed to ensure cleaning is simple and hygienic, rinsing clean with water after use. Additional cleaning convenience is offered with models ES8249, ES8109 and ES7109 that include a fully automatic self-cleaning and charging system to ensure hygienic cleaning as well as maintaining blade sharpness.
Users can select their preference of washing, drying or charging with a simple one touch button and the shaver will be thoroughly cleaned, dried at high temperature and charged in the cradle. The wash course also includes a lubricant which avoids the use of oil, to minimise odours.
