WHERE DO YOU SHIP FROM?
All orders are shipped from France.
DO YOU SHIP WITHOUT PLASTIC?
Of course, we ship all our packages without any plastic. Your products are either packed naked (with a small label) or in a recyclable box. In the shipping box, they are protected by kraft paper padding. The shipping box is exclusively made of cardboard and we seal it with adhesive tape made of recyclable paper.
CAN I RETURN MY ORDER?
Have you changed your mind? It happens! We can accept returns up to 30 days after receipt of the package. Only unused and undamaged items returned in their original condition and packaging will be accepted.
The buyer is responsible for the return shipping costs. Please choose a tracking option as we cannot be held responsible for lost packages that are not sent by us.
If you have any doubts about the conditions of return, the products you wish to return or the timeframe for return, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will ensure that the return goes smoothly.

CAN YOU CUT YOURSELF WITH THE RAZOR?
They are not called safety razors for no reason. The blade is held securely inside the razor and only a small part of the blade is exposed. The comb bar is closed/smooth, which allows for a more even contact with the skin and limits aggressiveness. You can still get micro cuts yes, as with any disposable razor, if it is not used properly or if the blade is dull. To avoid this, the two golden rules are:
- Take your time, there is a bit of a learning curve at first, but it is worth it.
- Do not apply pressure when you use it for the first time. You will learn to handle the pressure gradually.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CHANGE THE BLADE?
Change the blade the second you feel that the shave is not as smooth as it was at the first time. This usually happens every 5-10 shaves but will vary from one person to another. Always rinse and allow the blade and razor to dry between uses to get the most out of their potential life span.
The water in our showers is often harder than our drinking water. Even though our blades are made of stainless steel, the constant contact with water can lead to surface rusting, which can cause irritation.
HOW LONG WILL MY RAZOR LAST?
We have chosen corrosion resistant materials which are brass and zamak. The chances of it rusting are among the lowest (plus it's super easy to recycle). But leaving your razor under water can shorten its life. Soap, shampoo and other cosmetics can dull the coating if left in direct contact for a long time. Your razor will continue to function in the same way but will lose its aesthetic appeal.
To keep it in its original condition, it is best to keep it dry on a shelf or on your bathroom counter. If you take care of it, your razor will last a lifetime and should be the only one you ever buy. Whoop whoop! Can you imagine all those savings?
Depending on the colour you choose and how carefully you rinse and dry the razor, you will have a different result over time. Matt finishes (rose gold, black, white) are the softest coatings and are more likely to show wear over time. Rose gold and black finishes are electroplated, which means that the colour is fused to the metal and cannot flake off, unlike white which requires more care. The rose gold shade is produced from copper which has a natural tendency to patina over time. The chrome finish is harder and therefore more durable overall. All of these issues are aesthetic, however, and will not affect the operation of your shaver.
HOW CAN I SAFELY RECYCLE THE BLADES?
It might be common sense, but we'd rather write it down clearly: don't throw loose used blades in your metal recycling bin, or any bin for that matter. It's a risk of injury to the people who handle them. Instead, store them safely in a closed jar, a used can or an old metal box with a lid. Once filled, you can take it to your recycling centre.
WHAT CAN I DO WITH MY OLD PLASTIC RAZOR AND THE STOCK OF REPLACEMENT BLADES?
Plastic razors are very difficult to recycle because they are made of a variety of materials (plastic, rubber, silicon, metal, etc.). The sad truth is that the one you have will most likely not be recyclable, even if you manage to dismantle it. The best way to dispose of it is to use it until its very last days, then put it in the non-recyclable bin. Be optimistic that this will be the last time you do it.
It can be tempting to get rid of all the plastic when you start your zero-waste journey. However, if you have a stockpile of disposable plastic razors or blade refills, we recommend that you keep this stockpile aside and switch to a reusable razor straight away. This stockpile can come in very handy when travelling on plane with hand luggage only. This is because double-edged blades are officially banned on the cabin, and even if you are transparent with the airport staff, chances are they will confiscate them at security.
IS YOUR RAZOR FOR MEN OR WOMEN?
Short answer: both!
Long answer: the initial idea was to offer a shaver that would help women feel comfortable taking the plunge. This meant, among other things, working on a low-aggression blade, and a long handle. None of this makes it a women-only razor. My husband and I both use it.
