Harry’s, the direct-to-consumer brand that creates men’s and women’s shaving products, is joining the Edgewell Personal Care Company. Edgewell announced today that it will buy the company for $1.37 billion—a new record, after Unilever acquired Dollar Shave Club, a competitor to Harry’s, for $1 billion in 2016.

Building on Edgewell’s and Harry’s complementary strengths, our combined company will have leading brands and omnichannel capabilities that are essential to meet the needs of the modern consumer and win in today’s market environment,” said Rod Little, Edgewell’s president and CEO, in a statement.
