Eco Friendly Sustainable Razors Ireland
The average bearded man who shaves daily needs to replace their razor or razor cartridge every two to three weeks. That’s a hell of a lot of razors used and disposed of from adolescence to the grave. These then lurk for centuries in landfill before they eventually break down, whereupon they pollute the surrounding soil. Multi-blade razor cartridges are somewhat better than single-use disposable ones, though they can be 10 or 20 times more expensive.
Far better would be to invest in a safety razor that can last many lifetimes, if cared for. The same blades that were designed for it a century ago are still readily available and cost about €25 for two years supply, as opposed to about €75 for disposable multi-blade cartridges. The blades come austerely wrapped in wax paper and a minimalist cardboard box. They’re made of recyclable stainless steel, which your scrap-metal recycler will accept (though not your green bin).
Our Sustainable or Eco Friendly Razors are the perfect way to shave.
Shaving with a Safety Razor is great for a number of reasons:
- A single blade for your Eco Friendly Razor means less waste in the long run
- Bulk Razor Packs are a great cost saver
- A single blade razor means less irritation, less razor burn and a more enjoyable shaving experience
When we decided to ditch our plastic razor for a durable one, we had a hard time finding a model that was efficient, skin-friendly and elegant all at the same time. We were also surprised by the number of people who were afraid to take the leap.
So we decided to build our own Safety Razor. We believe we managed to create the perfect razor to get more people on board of a plastic-free bathroom routine.
- A single blade to provide an irritation and ingrown-free shave.
- A strongly curved blade, with minimal exposure and sitting close to the razor head, to offer a low aggressiveness level – while still maintaining the efficiency.
- A closed comb to ensure a good guard against cuts and an easy glide on the skin.
- A long handle to reach every parts of our body.
- A pinched neck below the head to provide an ergonomic and handy design.
- A finely chiseled handle to offer a good grip in the shower.
- A heavy weight and perfect balance so you only have to let it glide on the skin.
- A thinner, more elegant look
To load or change the blade: unscrew the handle from the head by twisting it anti-clockwise. Insert the blade between the two parts that form the head. Screw everything back together. Tighten it. You will see that the blade is curving: this is what we are into for a non-aggressive shave.
To shave: wait the end of a shower so your skin and hairs are soften. Apply shaving cream, soap or oil. Apply short strokes while holding the razor at 30°. If it’s your first time using a safety razor, we would advise you to apply absolutely no pressure, using only the weight of the razor. You will learn gradually the amount of pressure you can apply to get the perfect shave according to your skin – but it will be far less pressure than what you are used to apply with a plastic razor. This is the reason why we prefer to say “no pressure at all” for the first shave.
After shaving: pat dry your skin, rinse the razor under the water stream (with a little bit of soap if you prefer) and leave it to dry outside the shower or water stream to get most of its lifetime potential.
We ship entirely plastic free: from the box to the tape, you can reuse, compost or recycle everything.
