By bridging the gap from dependency to self-sufficiency, the Giraffe improves the quality of life for these women.

Giraffe Bath & Body creates new product, Giraffe Razor Extension Handle, to improve the quality of life for women who are unable to shave their legs due to varying physical limitations.

The inspiration behind the Giraffe Razor Extension Handle's unique design was to develop a shaving accessory that would assist women with varying physical abilities to shave their legs safely and comfortably.

The original intention was to create the Giraffe specifically to assist women who were unable to shave their legs due to the increasing discomfort of symptoms associated with the second and third trimester of pregnancy. But after researching the current personal care and shaving market, it was discovered that there was an unmet demand for a product for women limited in flexibility and mobility. These limitations or disabilities could stem from sports injuries, hip and knee surgery or a chronic medical condition such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, muscular dystrophy, degenerative joint disease, shoulder, neck or back pain or some other unforeseen circumstance. As a result, shaving can be difficult if not impossible with a short-handled razor. Bending at the waist or balancing on one foot while shaving in the shower increases the risk of slipping and falling, causing some women just to give up on shaving altogether or become dependent on a loved one or caregiver to help them carry out their daily self-care routine.

The Giraffe brings new hope for these women who have otherwise been overlooked for generations in the shaving industry. By bridging the gap from dependency to self-sufficiency, the Giraffe improves the quality of life for these women.
