Help stop billions of plastic razors ending up in landfill every year by switching to a traditional safety razor. Not only will you get a great close shave and save a fortune over the years, you won’t pollute the planet. What more could you ask from a razor?
This Acala double edge safety razor has a sturdy bamboo handle and stainless steel head. It will last for years and look stunning in your bathroom.
To use: unwind the handle and place the safety blade into the head, replace the handle and then enjoy your shave. The head of safety razors don’t move, so you have to control the angle of the blade yourself. The best angle is about 30 degrees to your skin. Because the razors are weighted, you don’t need to apply downward pressure, simply move the blade over your skin and you’ll get a lovely close shave.
The razor comes with 5 free blades to get you started. More blades are available here.
The blades are recyclable, just pop them in a container (such as a glass jar/ metal tin/ aluminium can) and take them to your local Household Waste Recycling Centre and put them in the Metals bin.
This razor comes packaged in unbleached, recycled paper to make this a zero waste product.
If this is your first safety razor I’ve written a blog to help you assemble it.
