Introducing: Our new plastic-free safety razor!
Whenever (if ever) you want to shave. We’ve got you, girl.
Let’s talk shaving, ladies. If it’s your choice of hair removal, then you’ll know that scraping any old blade across your glorious skin can cause small cuts, friction burns, razor bumps and the dreaded ingrown hairs. We’ve all had them and we all really don’t want them again. Whilst it’s important to make sure you use a lubricant whilst shaving, it’s absolutely vital to choose a great razor to shave with.
Here’s where we come in. We are revolutionising women’s plastic-free shaving…for good! Think safer, cost effective, eco-conscious razors that look pretty damn fine and you’re on the right lines.
It doesn’t take a genius to know that using a disposable or refillable razor means your contributing to the millions of tonnes of plastic waste contributed to land fill every single year. Of that, 8 million pieces of plastic make their way into the ocean damaging the eco-system and harming sea-life.
From the handles of disposable razors to the little add ons, it’s scary to think how much waste we can be causing and whilst we might be replacing our shower gels for soap bars, and our shampoo bottles for shampoo bars, why aren’t we replacing our razors too?
If shaving is part of your weekly shower routine, then it could be time to get rid of your current razor for an eco-friendlier (and much better) one. Now’s the stage to say hello to your ultimate bathroom accessory and hot new shower partner…
So, without further ado, here’s everything you need to know about our new environmentally friendly and plastic-free razor:
It’s a brass safety razor
Here’s a secret: metal safety razors have been around for a while. You might be surprised to hear it because we’re always bombarded with images of the modern plastic razor, but single-bladed metal safety razors are the traditional razors typically used by men, with a protective device positioned between the edge of the blade and the skin. This reduces the level of skill needed for injury free shaving, offering you a closer shave and ultimately softer skin. It also means if you pick it up by the head, your way less likely to have any nicks or grazes. We’ve reclaimed this ‘man’s tool’ and made it rather fancy, so you can get in on the action too. Injury free shaving with less irritation? Yes please.
It’s a savvy investment and better for your purse
Don’t throw away any more money on brightly coloured, single-use plastic razors. Whilst they might be cheaper on first purchase, they end up costing you so much more because you always need to re-buy. Reusable razors made from metals such as brass and will literally last for years, if not for your whole lifetime. What’s more, blade replacements work out a lot cheaper in the long run than buying a plastic razor as and when you need it, or multi-blade razor heads. We’ve all been in Boots before and gawped at the price of refillable razor heads, right? Metal safety razors might be a little more expensive to start off, but they really will go the distance and here at nuddy, we offer a 100% money back guarantee if it doesn’t. We’ve also got a blade subscription service, so you can get them sent straight to your door every few months without a second thought.
It causes less irritation
Less blades equates to less irritation - fact. It’s a myth that more blades mean a closer shave as the more blades you have, the more friction there is on your skin. More friction equates to itchy razor burns, ingrown hairs and an overall traumatic shaving experience. Our single double-edged blades give you a closer shave, the traditional way. It glides over your skin effortlessly and there’s absolutely no need to apply any pressure, as the weight of the metal razor is just the right amount to make sure you catch all the hairs. Our brass safety razor comes complete with two double-edged stainless steel razor blades and makes for your closest, smoothest shave yet.
It’s better for the planet
We’ve already mentioned this, but it is a biggie. Our razor is 100% plastic-free and only requires one purchase, with an occasional top up of stainless-steel blades. No plastic, no harmful ingredients and no fuss. They’re designed to last a long time, and nothing gets wasted with both our packaging and blades being easily recycled. Plus, this is probably the cutest razor you’ve ever seen in your life…if you know, you know.
So, nuddy loving queens, we believe you all deserve sharper shaves and softer skin (if you’re the shaving type) and if you’re feeling like your body hair needs some self-care, then head our way because we’ve got what you need.
We told you a full bathroom revolution was coming, and we really meant it. Get in on the action and buy your own sustainable shaving tool.
