Six Tech-Tastic Ideas

Braun °CoolTec

Braun’s revolutionary °CoolTec is the world’s first dry shaver that puts shaving irritation on ice. The secret of this breakthrough innovation is Braun’s pioneering Thermo-Electric-Cooling technology (TEC), usually employed in the construction of spacecrafts and satellites.

CoolTec_CT6_ER_07While most electric shavers allow heat to build up uncomfortably in the head of the shaver, the °CoolTec’s integrated aluminium cooling bar actively transports heat away from skin to minimise the shaving-induced increase in skin temperature. Men experience an energised coolness as the shaver glides around the contours of the face, resulting in perfectly relaxed, smooth skin, all at the push off a button, and without the need for any additional gels or lotions.
