Ecoelephant's Safety Razors

Posted by Tina Beyer on

Good old fashioned Safety RAZORS

Ecoelephant's Razors are a planet friendly reusable alternative to disposable razors. Our safety razor is an all-metal razor with a durable handle along with a head that has a protective safety bar.  In a safety razor instead of throwing away the whole head to change the blade, the blade alone is removable and replaceable. The blade access is standard, where you screw off the whole head to remove the blade. Ecoelephant razors use a double-edged blade so the razor can be used on both sides.

Disposable razors can only be used for a certain number of shaves.  Since disposable razors are made of mixed materials they may not be easily recycled and can result in landfill.  We do agree that the zero waste and minimalist way to go is no shaving. But if you like to keep it hair free it is time to invest in a good quality  razor than buying one that would only last for 3 or 4 shaves.

 Safety razors are your ultimate zero waste shaving solution and  a smart investment for your sustainable journey. These elegant & functional unisex razors can be a perfect gift for yourself and you friends.  Saving the earth one razor at a time #yayforearth #buymeonce #minimalistic products

Guide to Shaving with Ecoelephant Safety Razor

Prepare the area with some lukewarm water & lather up with the shaving soap.
Slowly allow the head of the razor against the area to be shaved and glide across the area without pressing it into the skin.
Try adjusting the angle to find out the most suitable ways for you. A 30 degree angle works quite well.
After shaving , wash the shaved area with clean water and wipe the area with clean cloth. Moisturize the skin with a natural cream or body butter.

Care for Safety razor
Always remember to take the blade out of the razor after shaving. Rinse and clean ( Ensure all hair is out ) them individually.
Wipe it thoroughly with a towel. Store the razor and blade separately in a dry place. With proper care, they can last a long time.

We understand that you might feel a bit scared and nervous to use a metal razor. There is a learning curve to it and once you get the hang of it, they are easy to use.
