A new age of shaving is on its way with the laser-razor Skarp, an innovative project currently found on Kickstarter and soon to come to all Kickstarter backers.
Shaving can be an annoyingly exhausting experience over time, ripe with tiny disasters in the making. Cuts, uneven hairs, roots showing, razor burn, dry skin are just a few to mention. Yet nothing beats the feeling of smooth skin. And the invention of two Swedes promises to deliver on this goal, while keeping all the tiny disasters at bay. Skarp is a laser-razor invented by partners Morgan Gustavsson and Paul Binun.
Back in 1989, Gustavsson had already set the basis of the Intense Pulse Light or IPL, a popular means to remove unwanted body hair. Nonetheless, until recently, only dark hair could be removed using this technique.
Thanks to continuous research, Binun and Gustavsson claim that even gray hair or lightly colored hair can now be removed, as they discovered a chromophore that is easily detectable by a light wavelength.
Thus, according to the two Swedes, the new age of shaving is on its way. Incorporating their findings in Skarp, the laser-razor guarantees effective hair removal using nothing but light wavelengths.
Their project has been wildly successful on Kickstarter. Looking for 160,000 dollars, Skarp already reached close to 700,000 dollars. And there are still some days left to back Skarp. According to the description, the laser-razor can be used anywhere on one’s body. There is no gender discrimination either, the product being targeted at both women and men. Why wouldn’t we all enjoy the pleasure of a smooth, cut-free, hair-free skin?
It remains to be seen how Skarp actually performs when the project backers will receive the product at home.
If it caught your attention, there’s still time to pledge your allegiance to the new age of shaving and smooth skin and order Skarp for 159 dollars. This is the price tag by March 2016.
