User manual Safety Razor
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, the zero-waste razors are now the best 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 do 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.
Ideal for beginners
The Scheermonnik safety razor is ideal for beginners. It is designed for easy use and the closed comb makes it less aggressive than an open comb. Shaving with the eco-friendly razor is different from a cartridge razor. Therefore, a complete and illustrated online user manual is included.
These razors are for men as well as women. You can shave your beard with this, but also your legs, armpits and your bikini line. We do strongly recommend to first practice on some easier areas to get used to the weight and angle of the razor. Once you get the hang of it, you will have the cleanest shave of your life.
