A sustainable self care routine must - the Bamboo Handle Double-Edge Safety Razor
- suitable for him or her!
Safety razors have been around for quite some time and they are a staple for a clean shave for both men and women. The blades are completely recyclable (unlike many disposable razors) and usually cheaper. You should get approximately 10 uses out of each blade and each razor comes with a pack of 10 double edge blades. Once you are finished using a blade, we recommend keeping them in a small jar or somewhere safe until you dispose of them all together.
The head of the razor is weighted nicely to give you a clean shave, so do not apply pressure while shaving as this could leave razor burn and cause ingrown hairs. Disposable razors require you to apply pressure as they usually pack in 4 or 5 blades tightly, meaning you need to force your hair between the blades. With the Bamboo Handle Safety Razor, use a 30 degree angle for your shave for optimum results. If you shave with the handle parallel to your skin, you would likely leave your skin raw, shave perpendicular and, well, the blade won't even touch you skin and you won't remove any hair... As there is an open blade, do not try to shave side to side as this will simply cut the skin (ouch!). Take your time, give yourself an extra couple of minutes to get the hang of it.
To install the blade (or remove), simply twist the handle to unscrew it, remove the first plate, place (remove) the blade on the other plate, put the first plate back and finally screw your handle back on tightly. We suggest lifting the blade from either short end as the other edges are very sharp. It should be very self explanatory once you have all of the pieces apart.
To get the most out of your safety razor and blades, we recommend rinsing off each part after use and patting dry. This will help prolong its usable life, which should be many many years!
Add the one time cost of the razor along with the affordable price of the blades and the number of uses per blade, and you can see why it is such an obvious choice for your pocket, but also, all of the parts are incredibly recyclable, especially the parts you replace (the stainless steel blades).
Keep out of reach of children in a safe place.
The razor is approximately 11cm in length and the head is approximately 4.25cm wide.
