The lawsuit seeks damages and an injunction to prevent the defendant from selling any products infringing Gillette's patented technology.
"We have long invested heavily in innovation, and our talented scientists have dedicated their careers to delivering the best shaving experience possible for men and women around the world," said Deborah P. Majoras, chief legal officer of P&G. "Our patents help protect the many technical advancements weve made through the years and when it becomes necessary, we take action to protect these important assets."
This isn't the first time P&G and Gillette have taken aim at a razor competitor. Back in 2013, Gillette sued Harry's for patent infringement. Harry's, a boutique razor delivery service, successfully got the Gillette Company to dismiss the suit.
