U.SHAVE

sustainable shaving for everyone

Unlike conventional razors, which are made of different thermoplastics and elastomers that can no longer be recycled, U.Shave is made of the recyclable monomaterial polypropylene. It fits the standardised single-blade, which is recyclable as well, and has advantages like the reduction of skin irritations and no blockage of the blade by hair. Since the single blade is not connected to the plastic, the whole razor head is not replaced when a new blade is needed, but the blade is replaced. As U stands for unisex, the U.Shave razor sets an exam­ple against the gender clichés of the shaving industry.
