RAZOR FAQ'S

SAFETY RAZOR 

WHY SHOULD I SWITCH?

Not only do our razors look beautiful, they will last you a life time and they are 100% plastic free. Our stainless steel blades are recyclable. No WASTE! In the US it is estimated that 2 billion disposable razors end up in landfill each YEAR!

Our razors give you a close smooth shave. Most plastic disposable razors use multiple blades, which means there is more dragging across the skin, resulting in a higher chance of razor burn and irritations.
Our safety razor give you a cleaner shave resulting in less ingrown hairs. There is less irritation as there is no lubricant strip that is full of toxic chemicals. Use your own natural organic soap and you will be left with a smooth irritation free shave.

 

SAVES YOU MONEY

Our Safety razors are a once off purchase. They are designed to last you a life time, only having to replace the blades which cost as low as $7 for a pack of 10. 

Think of every time you purchase a pack of disposable razors they cost between $10-$20. In a few months your safety razor has paid its self off.

 

IS THE RAZOR GOOD FOR SENSITIVE SKIN?

Our razors have a single blade. The single blade allows the hair to be cut close to the skin leaving you without razor burn, irritation or ingrown hairs. Disposable razors have multiple blades which drag across the skin causing all the above problems.

HOW LONG DOES A BLADE LAST?

We suggest replacing the blade after around 10 shaves. This can vary and depends on how thick your hair is and the size of the area you are shaving. You will start to feel the blade getting blunt…..time for a new one! Luckily, replacement blades are only $7 for a pack of 10.

 WILL ANY BLADES FIT MY THE ZERO WASTE PEOPLE RAZOR?

Our razors fit a standard double edge safety blade. You can purchase these online on our website, in your local Woolworths stores or by googling double edge safety blade.

HOW DO I DISPOSE OF THE BLADES?

 We suggest collecting the blades in a old jar or tin. Once full,  there are a few different options to dispose of the blades correctly. Contact your council to locate the nearest recycling point OR drop them off at a sharps disposal location.
