Is it safe to use a shaving foil on my entire body?

If you are curious about how safe it is to use a shaving foil on your body, please see the information below.

All Philips products consisting of a shaving foil are skin friendly. Philips is not a dermatological authority and cannot give skin, hair, or nail advice on individual cases.

Before using a Philips product with a shaving foil, it is good practice to visually check the device to ensure the shaving foil is still intact. To minimize the wear of the foil, safely store your product and protect the foil from outside pressure or impacts by attaching a cap or comb. Replace the foil immediately when it is damaged, via our webshop or your local Consumer Care.  

You can use the shaving foil to trim and shave your body hair below the neckline, for example armpits, arms, legs and pubic area (with a trimming comb). We do not recommend using it on your face or head, because you will not get desired results, and it may also damage your skin.

Some products come with additional attachments to use on sensitive areas, like your pubic region. You can find more information about using these attachments this in your user manual or can contact us.

If you are still unsure of using Philips devices with a shaving foil, please consult your physician or healthcare professional who can examine whether your skin is suitable for this type of hair removal device.

After care

If you are a first-time user or have very sensitive skin, a little bit of irritation is possible and nothing to worry about. This goes away with time. We recommend applying a mild and alcohol-free moisturizing cream after shaving. If the irritation lasts longer than 3 days, then please consult your doctor.
