Bambaw’s bamboo safety razor

What is a safety razor?

The safety razor is simply the ancestor of the plastic razors we know today. It first appeared in the 17th century and was a great evolution from the straight razor because, unlike the latter, it had a guard that made it possible to shave without the help of an experienced barber. However, it was only in the 20th century that it gained widespread popularity, when it first became possible to change the razor's double-edged blade.

Is this a unisex razor?

This razor is suitable for everyone. Once you've learned how to use it properly, you can equally well shave your beard with it, as well as your legs, armpits, or bikini line.

In addition, women's hygiene products have the unfortunate habit of being more expensive than men's, even though they are often completely identical. Since the bamboo razor is unisex, it makes the pink tax even more of a thing of the past.

Adopt a new shaving ritual

The hyper-connected world we live in constantly pressures us to move fast, sometimes making us forget to take time for ourselves. With the Bambaw’s bamboo razor, you will discover a new shaving experience as it will encourage you to pause this fast-paced lifestyle for a shave. Indeed, a safety razor requires more mindfulness and gentleness, which can turn your shaving ritual into a relaxing and calm moment that can almost feel like meditation.

Is the bamboo razor suitable for beginners?

Going back to more traditional tools can be scary at first, but the bamboo safety razor is easy to use and is therefore perfectly suitable for beginners. As well as coming directly with blades, the shaver head is simple to assemble, ensuring a smooth first use. Besides, the long handle makes it ideal for a good grip and the weight of the razor allows for a close shave without too much effort.

It even comes with a digital user guide to help you get the hang of it quickly. Inside, you'll find all the information you need to safely change your blade and care for your razor, as well as tips on how to get the cleanest shave.

For those of you who are tired of not knowing what's in your skincare products and want to use more natural ingredients, the guide also includes recipes to help you make your own shaving cream and soap.

The Bambaw razor collection

Make your choice from a large collection of shaving products. To pick your razor, start by deciding whether you prefer a bamboo or metal handle. There are 4 different bamboo razor models and 8 colors of metal razor. Metal razors can also come with matching stands for easy and tidy storage after each use.

If you want to step up your shaving routine, you can even opt for a shaving brush to apply your shaving cream or foam more efficiently. Finally, you can also order your Bambaw blades separately to change them whenever you feel the need.

Is a bamboo safety razor really better than a plastic razor?

A single blade for a better result

When the use of single-use plastic products began to explode, it was only a matter of time before the plastic razor made its way into most bathrooms. With it, the big razor companies went into a mad dash, insisting on marketing razors with more and more blades.

However, the idea that more blades mean a better shave is a common misconception. The more blades you run over your skin, the more likely you are to irritate it or even cut yourself. By shaving with a single blade, you'll cause much less damage to your skin and can say goodbye to post-shave pain.

In addition, the blades for disposable razors often cost a fortune, so consumers tend to use them for way too long. However, using dull blades is bad for your skin as it will tend to irritate it, as well as create ingrown hairs and shaving bumps. The advantage of single blades is that they are much cheaper, so you can afford to change them at the first sign of wear.

Higher quality materials for a bamboo razor that lasts

The quality of your unique blade is also what will give you a closer shave. Indeed, safety razor blades are made of stainless-steel, a material that stays sharp for a long time and is corrosion-proof, making them much more resistant than cartridge razor blades.

The razor head is also made of brass, a heavier material than what is used in plastic razors. It is precisely the weight of the razor that will allow you to shave so closely. With the bamboo razor, you do not need to exert any extra pressure on your skin, thanks to gravity, the weight of the razor is enough on its own.

Finally, the bamboo handle is long and does not slip. This gives you a stable and comfortable grip, which makes it very convenient to use in the shower. Bamboo is also a durable material that will last you a long time.

What is your bathroom waste legacy?

When you think about it, most of the products in our bathroom contain plastic, and it' s often not truly recyclable. This is a shame because, for example, if a shampoo bottle is not disposed of properly, it can take up to 500 years to decompose. It's even more difficult with products like disposable razors, because the blades are encased in plastic, so it's simply not possible to recycle them.

This becomes even more problematic when you consider the number of hygiene products the average adult uses. Indeed, a person who shaves almost every day with disposable razors will use about 2400 razors in his or her lifetime.

What are the alternatives?

Fortunately, there are plenty of things we can do in our bathroom to reduce our ecological impact.

Of course, switching from a plastic razor to a bamboo safety razor is a first step since you only have to change the razor blade, which can be recycled, but there are also many other alternatives to our usual hygiene products. For example, you can use bamboo toothbrushes, solid soaps and deodorants, reusable make-up remover pads or even menstrual cups and reusable sanitary pads.
