Inspecting the shaving head of your Philips Groomer

Is it safe to use a shaving foil to groom my 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 grooming device to ensure that the shaving foil is still intact. 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. 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 in your user manual, or you can contact us.

If you are still unsure about how to use 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 grooming device.

The shaving head could be damaged

The shaving foil of your Philips Groomer can wear down over time.

Before each use, inspect the shaver head. If the shaving foil looks damaged or worn out, replace it immediately. You can find replacement shaving foils at our online shop .

To find out how to replace the shaver head of your groomer, please refer to your user manual.
