“I spent the day at an outdoor event yesterday in the blazing heat, wearing a black t shirt. Put the deodorant on at 07.30. Arrived home after midnight. I still smelled of oranges 😊 brilliant product” Jemima Rose

5. Safety Razors
For those of you who choose to remove your body hair by shaving, Safety Razors have become a firm favourite for men and women alike! 🙌
Here are three reasons why safety razors are amazing for the planet (and for you):⠀
1) It is estimated that 2 billion plastic razors are thrown away every year! Due to the complex mix of materials (plastic, metals, rubber etc) they are not easily recyclable and hence are usually thrown away. A safety razor handle on the other hand could last you your lifetime, and the razor blades can be recycled! Yay! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2) As well as being made of plastic do you ever think about how much plastic packaging disposable razors come in? If you order a safety razor from us, there is no extra packaging at all. Much better for the environment in every way!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3) If you weren’t sold already; they are SO much cheaper in the long run! A safety razor is with 20 blades is £29. Looked after properly your razor should last a lifetime, and the razor blades should each last between 2-4 weeks, so your looking at between 1-2 years worth of hair removal. How much would disposable razors have cost in that time!? There you have it!
