Shaving: Most of us do it. Unfortunately, billions of plastic razors and cartridges are thrown away every year. They cannot be recycled, as the metal is embedded in plastic. So, all this plastic is burned or ends up in nature. This is a disaster for the environment. Luckily, there are better options.

Zero-waste shaving with safety razors

Traditional safety razors are an effective swap for plastic-free shaving. These zero-waste razors were widely used before the mass production of single-use razors. Major shaving companies, who only had profit in mind, made the traditional razor forgotten. Still, safety razors are now the best plastic-free alternative for men and women alike.

One recyclable blade

The zero-waste razors use one single blade made from stainless steel. Thus, the blades are easily recyclable. Please check with your local recycling point for information about recycling the blades!

How often the blades need to be replaced depends on shave frequency and hair type, this can vary from a few weeks to months. Double-edge safety razor blades are economical and can be bought in most supermarkets or online. 

We advise to never put an unprotected blade in the waste bin as this can be dangerous to you and others. Therefore, it is best to collect them in a can, old jar or tin, or similar object before disposing of them according to your local recycling regulations. 

HOW TO USE
  1. Wet the desired area and latter some shaving soap or cream on the area. Tip: first exfoliate the area gently for optimal shaving.
  2. Wet the razor with some water
  3. Shave at an angle of 30 to the skin and do not push the razor into the skin. Let the weight of the razor head to its things. If you apply pressure you can easily irritate your skin and may even cause cuts.
  4. After each stroke rinse the razor and latter some more shaving cream or soap.
  5. Finish off by patting your skin dry with some cool water.
  6. After you are finished drying, it's important to soothe and moisturize the skin to avoid any skin irritations. Here are some moisturizers that might help, if you have sensitive skin, preferably use a moisturizer without any essential oils.

For first-time beginners: practice on easier areas such as your legs or armpits, to get a feel of the weight and the angle. Start out with short strokes and even shorter strokes around difficult areas such as ankles and jaw lines. Since this is a different way of shaving because it does not have an angled head just like with traditional razors, it takes a few times to get used to. You might cut yourself but don't let that discourage you. Do you remember how many times we used to cut ourselves when we first started shaving when we were younger? It's all part of the game. Once you get used to it, trust me you will regret not starting sooner.

MATERIALS

Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc that has the advantage of being corrosion-resistant. This material gives the Bambaw razor its weight and helps you achieve a close and smooth shave. The double-edged razor is guaranteed to last long as brass is a solid and durable material.

Zinc does not initially contain nickel. However, be careful because it may have traces of it. We, therefore, advise you to test it beforehand if you are allergic to nickel.

FAQ

1. What is a safety razor? A safety razor is a type of razor that features a protective guard between the blade and the skin, reducing the risk of skin irritations, ingrown hairs, and cuts during shaving. 
2. How to shave with a safety razor? Hold the razor at a certain angle, in most cases this is 30 degrees. And start with slow strokes. Do not press but let the weight of the razor do the shaving. 
3. How many shaves with one blade? Some people indicate that they can easily shave an entire month with one blade. Depending on the quality of the double-edged razor blades, you can shave 2 to 7 times. The most affordable blades last 2 shaves. The better-quality blades only become dull after 7 shaves. The longevity of the blade also depends on the care, make sure the blade is clean and dry after each use.

Good razor

I don't know what went wrong with mine as I see some of the reviews have gone for years with it. Mine very quickly already developed rust.

Perfect

This razor is very easy to use. And I feel like it's also very safe to use. It removes my hair easily. I had to get used to the razor at first and find a way how to use it. But now I know how to use it, it's perfect. I love it

Super easy to use and no nicks!

What I like about this compared to other metal safety razors is that:
1) it’s easy to rinse the hair off it without too much effort
2) the blade/casing is very secure and doesn’t come undone when oily
3) less cuts and nicks compared to other brands

Never going back to plastic razor knifes

Works very well, once you have a good technique. I tried several times and in the end i got used to using the razor knife. The long handle takes care for enough grip.

Used it a lot

I loved using this zero waste razor. Used it for several years without any problems. Unfortunately after dropping it just once it broke. Have to buy a new one now, which is not so zero waste.
