The Scarlett Hamilton Safety Razor offers many advantages compared to a classic disposable razor:
Eco-friendly: made of sustainable and recyclable materials, it helps to reduce plastic waste.
Precise: its double-edged blade ensures a precise cut without damaging your skin and its ergonomic handle makes it easier to use.
Suitable for all parts of the body (beard, legs, underarms, bikini line, etc.) and is unisex.
Gentle shave: the quality of the single double-edged blade limits irritations and reduces the chance of razor burn. Since your skin is not irritated, you prevent the appearance of ingrown hairs, ensuring soft skin whatever your hair type is.
Our shaver works with universal double-edged blades. Refill available here.
Brass and zinc alloy handle.
Dimensions: 12 cm x 4.4 cm
Works with all universal "double-edged" blades
Comes with a double-edged blade, which lasts about 5-10 shaves.
To fit or change the blade: Unscrew the handle from the head by turning it counter-clockwise. Insert the blade between the two parts forming the head and screw it back together. Once tightened, you will see that the blade is curved: this is what allows a less aggressive shave.
To shave: preferably wait until after your shower, when the skin and hair have softened. Apply shaving cream, soap or oil. Shave with short strokes while holding the razor at a 30° angle. If you are new to the safety razor, we advise you to apply absolutely no pressure, using only the weight of the razor. You will learn as you go how much pressure you can apply to get the perfect shave.
After shaving: pat your skin dry, rinse the razor under running water (with a little soap if you prefer) and leave it to dry in a dry place. It is important to clean off all traces of soap/hair/skin to protect the metal. Keep the razor disassembled or avoid leaving a blade inside for a long time to avoid oxidation of the blade.
Rinse the inside and outside of your razor thoroughly after each shave to remove all traces of soap and hair. We recommend that you keep your razor disassembled between uses. Avoid leaving a dirty or wet blade inside your shaver as this will cause the blade to oxidise.
A safety razor can last a very long time if it is well maintained. This does not mean that it will survive all drops, knocks and misuse.
