Gillette is listed as one of the companies that does not provide full public disclosure. The company did not respond to a survey for information sent by SIRAN.

From vinyl shower curtains to children’s toys, PVC (polyvinyl chloride) plastic products pervade our homes and lives. These products are dangerous to our health and environment from start to finish - in the factory, at home, and in the trash, releasing toxic chemicals linked to cancer and birth defects. The good news is safe and cost-effective alternatives exist and retailers such as Ikea have completely phased out PVC.

The following products made by Gillette/Procter & Gamble contain PVC plastic in the packaging:

  • Fusion Razor (20001906)
  • Mach3 Razor
  • Turbo Razor
  • Fusion Razor
  • Venus Vibrance Razor
  • Gillette For women - venus razor blade
  • Gillette M3 Power razor blade
  • Gillette Sensor 3 for women razor blade
  • Gillette Venus divine razor blade
  • Gillette m3 power nitro razor
