Safety Razor Kelp
Safety razor in kelp green - limited edition! This beautiful and stylish razor from Well Kept is made of solid brass.
Well Kept: "After a lot of research and product testing, we found that high-quality safety razors with one blade offer the best shave. While traditionally used by men, there is absolutely no reason why women shouldn't get a superior shave with our Safety Razor. "
- Superior and gentle shave
- Less skin irritation
- Stylish, high quality and extraordinary
- Sustainable and plastic-free alternative
- In the long run, cheaper than multi-bladed plastic razors
- Available in the colors kelp, Dusty Rose, Cream and Matte Black .
The Well Kept Razors are gentler on the skin and dramatically reduce skin irritation because they use a single blade instead of the multiple blade cartridges. The myth that multiple blades shave more thoroughly and gently is an invention of the plastic razor industry.
We are often asked or receive inquiries from our customers such as "A safety razor intimidates me" or "I am nervous and don't know how to use a safety razor". But here's the secret ... there is no secret. It is really easy! There are no need to take any special measures, you shave just like you did before!

- Take your time
Instead of trying to shave as quickly as possible, consider shaving a little self-care ritual. How about a nice hot shower, a soothing body peeling and then methodically and carefully shave so that you don't miss anything.
- Shower and exfoliate
For an optimal shave, make sure that your skin is warm, cleansed and ideally freshly exfoliated. After a thorough peeling in the shower, shaving is super easy.
- Apply shaving oil or soap
Use shaving oil or soap according to personal preference and lather the skin well. It is advisable to only lather the area that is currently intended for the shave - step by step, so to speak. If you use shaving oil, it is best to wash your hands briefly with soap so that you have a good grip.
- Do not exert any pressure
The razors are made of solid brass and have a nice weight. Let the razor slide over your skin without applying additional pressure. A good rule of thumb is to position the razor at an angle of about 30 degrees.
- Shave with or against the hair growth?
What works for many:
- Legs: The skin on the legs is not particularly sensitive and shaving against the growth of hair is not a problem. With one go, everything is usually shaved thoroughly.
- Armpits: First with the hair growth, then pull the skin taut and apply a second pass against the hair growth, but without pressure.
- Bikini zone: First with the hair growth, then again more across the hair growth than against it and of course the whole thing without any additional pressure.
- Keep the razor blade clean
Rinse the razor head after a few cycles. It is best to hold the razor head and loosen it half a turn. Then clean the razor head from deposits (hair, skin, oil, grease, etc.) under the tap or in a small bowl of water. Keeping the blade clean and sharp is important to avoid skin irritation.
- Keep the blade sharp
A sharp razor blade is key to avoiding irritation and ingrown hairs. It is best to change the blade after three to four shaves. The costs for the blades are low, so that they can be replaced frequently. Collect the used blades in a small container and dispose of them.
That's it! Easy right ?!
Change the blade
- Your razor has three parts to which you add a fourth (the blade).
- Grasp the handle with one hand and the blade head on the short sides with the other. Loosen the handle and place the parts in front of you.
- Carefully remove the old blade and insert the new blade just as carefully. Then screw it together.
- When changing the blade, it is advisable to clean all three parts well. If you've used shaving oil, a quick soapy bath (or some dish soap) will work very well.
- Keep out of the reach of children, razor blades are very sharp!
