For many of us, shaving is a part of life as well as the weekly, or even daily routine. Faces, legs, arms and bits in between, we all crave a close shave that leaves us feeling soft, smooth, and irritation free.
In pursuit of this stubble-free existence, us humans get through billions of razors every year. Disposable plastic ones, metal and plastic reusable ones with disposable heads- all of these end up in landfill and take centuries, if not millennia to break down. Moreover, we slather ourselves in foaming creams and chemical-based balms that come in aerosols or plastic packaging, that also take many lifetimes to disappear.
Foaming soaps and creams can also be irritants as some of the ingredients used can trigger reactions, dry the skin, and cause redness. In addition to this, we need to be ever-conscious of what goes down the plug hole, swapping out products with artificial ingredients in favour of more natural and organic alternatives.
Lastly, if you like to use shaving brushes, you need to consider the fact that most modern brushes use animal hair, therefore cannot truly be considered as vegan or cruelty free. That is why we advocate for using synthetic fibres instead.
At Peace With The Wild, we have worked hard to curate a collection of what we believe are some of the finest eco-shaving products out there. With a focus on vegan, cruelty-free, plastic free, and organic qualities, we have on offer a fine range of products that should make your transition to eco-shaving and the shave itself, pain free.
All of our creams and soaps come in aluminium tins, free from any plastic packaging and our razors are made with sustainable bamboo handles. Brushes come with synthetic hair and handles made of sustainable wood such as Ash. Furthermore, our blades are metal and can be re-sharpened, recycled, or disposed of safely, rather than festering in landfill for years to come.
