Welcome to Giraffe Bath & Body®
Giraffe Razor Extension Handle
The inspiration behind the Giraffe’s unique design was to develop a shaving accessory that would assist women with varying physical abilities to shave their legs safely and comfortably.
It was our original intention 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 market, we discovered an unmet demand for a product like ours 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 is difficult if not impossible with a short-handled razor. Bending at the waist or balancing on one foot while shaving increases the risk of slipping and falling. As a result, some women may just simply give up on shaving altogether or become dependent on a loved one or caregiver to help them carry out their daily self-care routine.
It is our hope that the Giraffe would help to bridge the gap between dependency to self-sufficiency and to help improve the quality of life for these individuals. – Kathryn Wilkinson-Smith, RN / Co-founder Giraffe Bath & Body, LLC
