It has been proved that over 4 billion plastic disposable razors are thrown to landfill every year, this is a call for anyone who chooses to shave to stop using plastic disposable, cartridge based razors. We need to go back to using what we started with, traditional plastic free safety razors. Most major shave companies pack their shaving foams with toxic, unnatural chemicals in non recyclable containers full with plastic packaging. A lot of companies cram their razors with unnecessary batteries, heated blades, roller balls and ‘lubricating strips’ so they can charge you the earth for something you really do not need and something your skin is not needing.
HERE IS THE SOLOUTION; A stainless steel razor is the perfect alternative and replacement to the plastic single-use razors. This razor from Zero Waste Club comes with a pack of 10 razor blades and the blades are very easy to replace. Made from stainless steel. good for face and all-over-body. This razor is unisex and perfect for any human choosing to shave.
The razor handle is longer than most safety razors with the handle length being 98mm, 10mm more than others). This makes it much easier to hold, especially for those with larger hands.
If you have not tried a traditional razor before then be ready to be impressed. Good for face and all-over-body, plus it's unisex.
Comes with no plastic packaging whatsoever as the box comes in a recycled Kraft Paper.
Zero Waste Club plant and protect a tree for every order of this item.
How to use:
You do not need to apply pressure when using this razor. The key is just to hold the handle between your finger tips. Then let the weight of the razor head glide over your skin. Included are 10 spare blades. These superior platinum double edge blades fit snugly in your razor, giving you the closet shave and smoothest skin time and time again. Please do not dry shave.
The added benefit of the this safety razor is the gap between the blade and the frame, allows hairs to escape the head of the razor meaning no clogged razor heads. This is better than getting hair stuck like disposable heads.
