👙 6 Reasons Why You Should Use a Safety Razor
You see them more and more, the safety razor. They seem so new but actually they have been around for a long time. Your grandfather probably used them too. They are only back on the scene now because more and more people are becoming more aware of waste and use of disposable plastic. But why choose a safety razor?
🌍 1. Eco-friendly
Single-use razors or razors with replaceable cartridges are usually made of plastic. Plastic pollutes our natural environment and fills up landfills. It has recently been confirmed that we suffer not only from acid rain but also plastic rain. Microplastics are carried along through the natural water cycle and end up in places where there is normally little plastic, such as natural parks.
♻️ 2. Recycling
Plastic razor blades are rarely recycled. To recycle them, they must be disassembled into plastic and metals. Most recyclers cannot do this. To recycle each plastic correctly, it must be identified with a number that indicates the type of plastic (1-7). Many razors don't have a number, so recycling facilities don't know how to recycle them.
Meanwhile, so much poor-quality plastic is collected that it is becoming increasingly difficult to find outlets. The Netherlands exports some of it to Germany, where the material is processed for a fee. The Germans themselves burn their own mixplastics in power plants.
According to CPB, it therefore does not make sense to start collecting even more plastic now because this will increase the plastic mountain, without being able to recycle the plastic. "The environmental benefits will thus come under pressure."
With a safety razor you shave completely plastic free. Our blades are not packaged in plastic dispensers like brands as Feather or Derby.
💎 3. Sustainable investment
Safety razors last for years, decades, or even a lifetime. We only replace the metal blades, the housing is durable and made of high-quality stainless steel and zinc. Therefore, invest in a good safety razor.
🥰 4. Smoother result and better for your skin
Shaving with a clean and sharp blade means that the hair is efficiently cut with one stroke. This means less friction with the skin and will result in less irritation, razor bumps or ingrown hairs.
If you replace the blade before they become blunt, you won't have to shave the same spot twice. Your skin will thank you!
💸 5. Save money
A high-quality reusable razor is a one-time upfront investment that will save money in the long run. Blades are inexpensive and contain no plastic. You can thus save up to €230 per year!
😎 6. Super hip
Let's face it, using a safety razor is cool and they look much better in the bathroom, almost like a decoration. Is it going to be matte black or rose gold for you?
Whether you care about the environment, health, skin, looks, or wallet, switching to a safety razor is the best investment you can make to improve your shaving routine!
