Philips Launches S$599 Shaver S9000 Prestige With “World’s Closest Electric Shave”

Launched today in Singapore, the Philips Shaver S9000 Prestige (SGD 599) boasts the world’s closest electric shave.

Emphasising increasing trends in societal expectations pertaining to male groming, Philips reinforced the importance of this launch with a nation-wide survey they commissioned. Amongst the results shared, was the importance of physical appearances, with 81% of female (and 84% of male) respondents stating that a clean shave is important to presentability.

The Philips Shaver S9000 Prestige features new NanoTech precision blades that are strengthened with nano-particles for longer-lasting sharpness and precision for a consistent close shave.

Multi-direction ContourDirect heads with proprietary rotary technology deals with uneven hair growing in different directions and densities, ensuring even, close shaves around sharp contours like the neck and jawline. The BeardAdapt Sensor checks for hair density 15 times per second to adapt shaving power for an optimal shave, even for longer beards – up to seven days.

Superb SkinComfort rings on the S9000 Prestige provide an ultra-smooth shaving experience with its anti-friction metallic-pigmented coating. Wider, rounder openings on the S9000 Prestige allows more hair to be captured for a more efficient shaving session.
