A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
We have been working to create a women’s razor to bring you a pleasurable shaving experience on multiple levels. It’s a fresh twist on a classic design that gives you the best razor for your skin, the earth, and your pocketbook. We’re not just taking a men’s razor and adding a pink handle.
We’re rethinking the razor as a whole: the aesthetics, the quality, the durability. All aspects have been crafted for an extraordinary shaving experience specifically for women. We want to change the relationship you have with your razor from a cheap piece of plastic that collects mold in your shower to an artisanal personal care ritual that you look forward to and enjoy.
We all want that luscious beautiful skin. It gives us the confidence to look our best for our career, a night out, or just simply because we can. Many multi-blade cartridge razors are designed to use the tug and cut method to shave the hairs slightly below skin level. While this is an effective shaving process, it can promote razor bumps, ingrown hairs, and be more abrasive on your skin. Traditional single blade shaving is easier on your skin because the single sharp blade allows you to gently and cleanly shave your skin without having to apply a significant amount of pressure to the razor blade. This gentle technique helps prevent ingrown hairs and razor bumps.
You feel in control over your finances. You make wise financial choices so that you can spend lavishly when the spirit moves you. With the Treatshave razor you can use razors that are healthier for you and the environment while saving you money. You save 50% a year using the razors designed for the Treatshave razor compared the top-selling multi-blade razors on major internet retailers.
The impact you have on the earth is something you care a great deal about. The EPA estimates that 2 billion disposable razors are thrown away every year. The single injector blades that are designed for use with our razor handle can be recycled anywhere that accepts scrap metal. Using the Treatshave system, not only are you taking better care of your skin, but you’re taking better care of the planet as well.
You don’t use a cheap plastic knife to prepare a nice meal so why are you using a cheap plastic razor on your legs? We know you have a lot of choices in your day and while your choice of razor may be a small change, it can have a big impact on your skin, the environment, and your finances.
Get ready we’re changing things with the Treatshave razor. Take this opportunity to be on the leading edge of unexpected luxuries. Make your friends ask what is that? Where did she get that?
Risks and challenges
Our biggest risk is not raising the funds needed to place a Minimum Order with our manufacturer.
If we are successful in raising the needed funds, the next risk would be an issue with our manufacturer.
We have a complete prototype with associated CAD drawings and have received a reputable manufacturing quote based on that information.
