Disposable Razors vs Safety Razors

Cartridge razors vs double edge safety razors


Disposable or Cartridge razors are a good and very easy option to use. Almost all of us started with one and the learning curve is so fast that even a child could learn how to use one.

However, once you learn more about the shaving wonders, disposable razors become almost not worthy of the “job”. Their lack of shaving efficiency and manoeuvrability gives the safety razors the upper hand.

Using a safety razor can help you to improve your shaving experience and will allow you to reach a smooth and comfortable shave without nicks or cuts.

Big Disposable razor brands assume that every skin is the same and that the more blades the better. In fact, is the opposite, many blades result in many contacts with your skin. This causes irritation and inborn hair. 

So, they end up being bad for your skin, cost a fortune in the long run and are not recyclable.

In 2020, there were 2 billion cartridge razors produced in the US alone. 2 Billion, with a B! The majority of these cartridges end up in the landfill or ocean, contaminating it for centuries to come.
