Seemingly, the combination of talent, expertise and brands shall help strengthen the Grooming business of P&G as well as boost the growth for Billie and accelerate the development of the additional products that are designed especially for the specific needs concerning women.

According to sources, Billie donates about 1% of the total revenue to all the causes related to women worldwide. The company has also been donating to the organization, Every Mother Counts, which is dedicated to help make pregnancy and childbirth safe for women across the world.
