BPA Free

Products that are labeled as BPA free do not contain Bisphenol A, a chemical commonly found in plastic products. Studies on BPA exposure have shown that high levels of BPA could lead to hormone disruption, effects on behavior and brain function, reproductive problems, breast cancer, heart disease, infertility, and more.

Hemp

This high-yield crop grows quickly and usually doesn’t rely on harsh pesticides and fertilizers, making it a dependable renewable resource. The cannabis plant produces more fiber per acre than common textile crops like cotton and flax, and actually adds nutrients to the soil instead of depleting them! Hemp is strong, breathable, and moisture wicking, and it requires minimal dye during fabric production due to its high absorbency qualities.

Product Specifications

Product Care

  • To insert a blade into the safety razor, twist the bottom of the razor handle to open and close the 2 blade holding wings and secure the blade
  • Rinse all the soap or hair from your razor after each use. Shake dry or towel dry. Store somewhere dry. If you ever notice corrosion or rust starting to develop you can generally rub that spot vigorously with a terry cloth towel, or if a more aggressive approach is needed, use a small piece of emery cloth. Drying the blades themselves with a towel will contribute to much quicker blade dullness.
  • Tips for use: make sure you are using a good lubricating shaving cream or soap. Hold the razor at an angle of about 30 degrees between the blade and your skin. Do not apply much pressure or pull too hard; the weight of the razor itself is acting on the blade and that is generally sufficient for a great, close shave. Use short strokes, especially in the beginning. Rinse the blade often as you go. For an excessively excellent shave, try shaving after a shower or steam bath.

About the Company

Albatross

Nobody knows the oceans better than a true sailor–and the founders of Albatross Designs are just that. Unfortunately, sailors also see the incredible amounts and impacts of the plastic waste that’s currently floating in the oceans. Albatross Designs is on a mission to both reduce the plastic that enters our waste stream, and to remove the plastic that already litters our streets and oceans. Their reusable, metal safety razors are made for high performance, have a sleek design, and can last nearly forever if well kept. They’ve even thought about what happens to the individual blades after use, creating a take-back program to recycle blades into reusable utensil sets!

    Awesome affordable option

    This is a amazing razor it looks great and works fantastic for me.(I’m female btw)
    I haven’t had any issues with cutting myself just make sure that the area u are shaving is wet with water and/ or soap. The only thing is I will mention that the blades come in a very small box and for me it was difficult opening that and getting to the actual blade. Soo big hands beware lol.

    Boyfriend loves it!

    Admin EarthHero (verified owner)

    Hey, it’s Hannah from EarthHero! I purchased this a couple of months ago for my boyfriend, since he was getting razor bumps from his conventional razor. At least once a week I hear him rave about how much he likes it! Not only does it have the “cool” factor with the full stainless steel design, but it shaves very smoothly and doesn’t create the razor bumps that he was getting before! You need to switch the blades out more regularly than with a multiblade razor, but with super affordable replacement blades that come in packs of 20, it saves so much money in the long run!

    I love this so much! Ordered 2 more for friends and family, and it’s much less expensive than buying razors all the time! Plus more sustainable of course 🙂

    I used to *hate* shaving. I would try to put it off for as long as possible, but this razor makes it so easy. It’s super easy to clean and the weight of the razor basically does the work for you.

    I thought this would be the scariest razor I’ve used yet, but it’s one of the best razors I’ve ever used! Easy to get used to, and I’ve had less irritation.

    bit of a learning curve coming from disposables, but works great once you’re used to it! I recommend for anyone who wants to make shaving more sustainable and cheaper!

    I love this razor!! My mom had warned me about switching to a safety razor and that I would probably cut myself often with it. I have been using it for two weeks and can say I have not cut myself once. Blades seem to last two weeks for me, I shave around 2-3x a week. Amazing to support a closed loop system. You definitely also need a good shaving soap, it will not work without some form of lubricant.

    I was weary buying this due to the price, I had never bought a razor for more than 10 dollars. I bought it because I wanted a more sustainable option and most other brands got bad reviews. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. It comes with a bunch of extra blades, making the price more than worth it. Plus, the blades are easy to insert.

    Works well!

    Madisyn Gracia (verified owner)

    Decided to swap the plastic razors for their more sustainable option. It’s a bit of a learning curve but not too bad at all! It gets easier to use after the first few times of trying it out. I was a bit nervous about cutting myself since it’s so different than plastic razors, but I haven’t accidentally cut myself much more than I did with typical razors. I recommend watching a tutorial on how to use a safety razor if you’re new to it! The blades are very easy to replace with the butterfly function. As long as you take your time with it and are confident then you’ll have no issue making the switch! 🙂

    I was a little scared to try this razor. I thought there was going to be a long learning curve but it was very easy to get used too. I had it down on my second shave.

    Great product!

    jillianmcdonald (verified owner)

    I can’t believe I’ve been using disposable razors all these years. I was a little worried about how this one would be on my skin (which is sensitive) but no razor burn or nicks in sight! I haven’t used the blade return service yet but I definitely will once it’s time to!

    Last Razor I'll Ever Buy

    Sarah (verified owner)

    Can’t believe I didn’t invest in a safety razor sooner, and this is great. Super close shave. I was scared to use it at first but it’s easy to get the hang of. I shaved my ***entire*** body with it, and it was fine. You can’t nonchalantly shave, you have to pay attention to what you’re doing. Certain areas take more time to shave than others, so if you’re going to do a Brazilian-style shave, set aside some time.

    It comes in a burlap pouch, but I wish it came in a case of some kind to store it in. I can’t store a razor in the pouch without slicing up the bag, so I’ve just been taking the blade out and then putting the razor in the pouch. It would just be easier to store it in a case with the blade still in there, and offer extra protection in storage.

    I have not used the recycle/return your blade program that Albatross does, but I am excited to!
    So happy with the razor overall!
