How to Shave With a Reusable Safety Razor 5

Not only are eco, reusable safety razors zero waste, eco-friendly, vegan and better for the environment but they provide a much closer shave, eliminate pain and irritation, reduce ingrown hairs, and are better for your skin. That said, for those that have never used a reusable safety razor, they can be a little daunting. But believe us when we say, once you get the hang of it, you will never look back.


Adding the blade to the reusable safety razor

  • Hold the handle of the reusable safety razor in your hand and unscrew the bottom with your other hand. 
  • The top of the reusable safety razor will then open like the wings of a butterfly and you will see a bar down the centre.
  • Remove the reusable safety razor blade from the paper packaging, holding it by the short sides.
  • Put the blade in the top of the reusable safety razor, making sure the bar lines up with the opening in the centre of the blade.
  • Twist the bottom of the reusable safety razor closed, making sure it is tight to stop the blade from coming loose when you shave.


Shaving with a reusable safety razor

  • Lather up the area of skin you wish to shave using your organic shaving cream or vegan shaving soap and a vegan shaving brush.
  • Place the reusable safety razor at a 30-35 degree angle- this is the optimum angle to ensure you get all of the hairs, but don’t end up cutting yourself
  • Shave in short strokes using little pressure, instead relying on the weight of the reusable safety razor to provide the right amount of pressure to get a good shave.



  • Once you have finished shaving, take the reusable safety razor apart before rising it thoroughly and then drying it with a towel. It is important to remove all moisture from the reusable safety razor and the reusable safety razor blade, but be mindful not to cut yourself!
  • Rinse the vegan shaving soap/natural shaving cream residue from your face and add a natural moisturiser if desired.
  • If travelling with your reusable safety razor, be sure to keep it wrapped up so that there is no risk of it injuring you, anyone else, or causing any damage to the things you pack it amongst.


See, that wasn’t so hard was it? Zero waste shaving with a eco, vegan, reusable safety razor is easy and if you can help our planet by being more eco-friendly at the same time its a win, win!


  1. Having just placed a second order with you, it feels like Christmas each time, I get really excited not only to receive the goods but knowing that my husband and I are doing our bit to help the environment and hopefully make a change for our grandchildren’s future.
    But if I can make just one small comment, I have ordered the natural grass pen but had to order a refill too as I have to write in black at work, not a moan just an comment.
    Looking forward to receiving my next order.

  2. Hi looking for a eco razor to use on legs and arm pits rather than face, is a safety razor good for woman too?.I’m terrible at shaving and worry I’ll slice myself to shreds?!.

    1. Hi Holly, all of our safety razors are suitable for both men & women. The Mutiny razor is the lightest out of them all so might be the easiest to get used too! Check out our Instagram (IGTV) for videos & tips on how to use a safety razor.

  3. I am in the habit of shaving down there. The thought of using a safety razor for that scares me a little. More so the wife!

    Any tips for fragile sustainable shaving?

    1. Hi Lawrence, I would definitely recommend to get used to using the razor on other parts of your body first (face, legs, armpits). We have a demo video which goes through the angle to hold the razor that you can find using the link at the end. Once you feel comfortable, then go for it! Just take it slow and steady and make sure you use a really good shaving cream to make sure the razor glides smoothly. I find that the best one for the job is the PWTW organic shaving cream, it is a little thick to use on your face but great for intimate areas as it moisturises at the same time and allows the razor to move smoothly. But any will do the job just fine i’m sure!
