How to Use Your Safety Razor

While everyone’s shaving needs are different, here’s a set of steps to get you started.

how to prepare for your first shave

Twist the bottom of the shaver handle to open the wings of the blade holder.  Simply place a blade (be careful it’s sharp!) on the platform and twist the bottom in the opposite direction to tighten the blade holder wings over the blade. You’re all set to go!

To load blade in a 3-piece style handle:   Unscrew the handle from the two blade holding plates.  Place blade between the blade holding plates and screw in handle.  You’re ready to shave!

 

how to shave with a safety razor

The best time to shave is during a hot shower but if you prefer not to uou can warm up your skin with a moistened warm towel instead.

Lather up your skin with your favourite natural soap or try something like our Eco Tan shower gel full of natural ingredients that will help keep your skin nourished,

Warm up the blade under warm water.

There are a few tricks to start with that will make all the difference, practice these and you’ll be away laughing.

Be gentle! Use only a little pressure these blades are effective and sharp, let the blade cut the hairs not the pressure of “dragging” if you need to hold at the end of the handle to stop you from pressing to harsh.

Angle the blade as far from your skin as possible. As you’re using a singular blade and the razor head doesn’t pivot or automatically contour to your skin, you need to do the contouring yourself. A trick for this is holding the razor parallel to the floor, putting the razor head onto your skin, and slowly tilting the head down until the blade starts cutting the hair. Then stop – you’ve found the right angle. People usually recommend holding the razor at a 30-degree angle, but everyone’s different, so we recommend finding your own angle too.

As always shave with the grain. Shaving against the grain can cause irritation and result in nasty in grown hairs. Go over the same area softly a few times if you need to if you skin is particularly sensitive.

Try t a few times and you will soon get the hang of it!

Don’t forget – rise and dry your razor and keep it out of the shower as the steam can cause it to erode more quickly.

Moisturise with your favourite natural cream or oil as usual.

Aftercare for your Razor

To get the most use out of your razor make sure you look after it!

Twist the handle and open the razor head. Gently take out the blade by the short, non-sharp sides, and rinse both the blade and the razor to remove suds and hair.

Completely dry the razor and blade, close it all back up, and store it in a dry place for next time. Although the chrome plating means little likelihood of corrosion from water, keeping something in a warm and wet place is never a good idea if you want to make it last.

If you want to clean it further, you can wipe the razor and blade with the rubbing alcohol and let it dry before popping it away.

the blades

Use your blade until it becomes dull or rusty, you’ll see this happening when it takes a few goes to get the hair off.

At this point, you can either store the blade for recycling or sharpen it for further use. Please ensure you recycle and dispose of the blades safely

A clean shave for you and the ocean.

In launching our shaver shop, we identified a daily habit that represents substantial plastic waste and devised the solution of offering high quality all-metal safety razors.

Making the switch from a plastic cartridge razor to our double-edge safety razor provides fantastic benefit to both the shaver and the environment.

The beauty is that the less expensive option provides a superior shave. Due to design, our razors do not cause the type of skin irritation that many have, sadly, come to accept and expect in shaving with commonplace plastic cartridge-style products.

Finally, and perhaps best of all, shaving with an Albatross razor is the eco-friendly option.  You’ll get the barber-quality wet shave you’ve been dreaming of without generating plastic waste that harms the environment and ocean ecology.

Intelligent Lifestyle.  Wisdom & Grace.
