Should I Use a Safety Razor?

Mar. 01, 2024

An increasing number of wet shavers are now shaving regularly with a traditional double edge safety razor — a shaving method very popular from the early 1900s until the launch of disposable razors and cartridge system razors in the 1970s.

While a 3 or 5 blade cartridge system will offer an acceptable shave, using a traditional double edge safety razor offers so much more than simply being a fashionable way to remove facial hair.

If you want to help prevent shaving irritation, reduce your plastic consumption, minimise your shaving costs, or experience an indulgent luxury shave, you need to ask yourself 'Should I be using a safety razor?'

1. Enjoy the full traditional wet shave experience

· Using a shaving brush, vigorously work up a creamy lather of scented shaving soap

· Apply the soap to existing beard growth and shave in the direction of the beard grain (the first pass)

· Wash off remaining shaving soap and reapply surplus soap, flip the safety razor over and use the second blade to shave 'across' the grain of the beard (the second pass)

· Enjoy the results — an extremely smooth, very close and satisfying wet shave, ready for your preferred cologne or soothing aftershave balm

2. A safety razor helps prevent razor burn

Shaving with a sharp clean double edge blade is much less likely to clog with beard hair, shave cream and bacteria — the ingredients of mild skin irritation and razor burn. Rinse the safety razor blade regularly during the shave to ensure a clean, smooth outcome.

3. Less likely to encourage other unsightly skin problems

Shaving with a clean double edge blade will help prevent ingrowing beard hairs and restrict the bacterial infections that cause acne.

4. A safety razor yields a very, very low 'cost-per-shave'

Shaving with a double edge blade is very frugal indeed. A few double edge razor blades cost only a few pence to buy, a fraction of the price of a single 3 or 5 blade cartridge.

5. Benefit the environment

Wet shaving with a safety razor also has a positive impact upon the environment. Double edge blades (always made from stainless steel) can be manufactured very efficiently compared to engineering the necessary components used to assemble blades in plastic cartridges. Thus, Dongshen stainless steel safety razors are 100% plastic-free!

Note: It is recommended to change your double edge blade after 5-7 shaves.
