Tips for easy cruelty free shaving

There are a few lucky people who are born without the burden of having to shave their faces every so often. However, the most of us have to shave regularly at most in 2-3 day intervals.

I try to live a plastic free life and have removed the clutter as much as possible. I’m not entirely dedicated on this or in any way obsessed with it, just try to do my best. I love my animals and try to protect them as much as possible.

I’ve been using my Mercury shaving razor for as long as I can remember, I think that this is not true for all guys out there. And I sincerely believe that I can get my message to them.


I’ve been trying to live as much eco and animal friendly all my life. I love animals and don’t want them to suffer for me, for my needs or wants. And I realized that I must get out the word. I realized that I should inform other guys out there what is really going on behind the curtains and let them ask themselves whether they want to be part of it.

Why shaving you may ask. Well, we’ve got to start somewhere. One step at a time can go a long way to the goal.

Do you know that even though some companies’ state that their products are not tested on animals this might be only partially true? It may only refer to the final product and not for the ingredients or for the middle-testing.

There is an organization (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) or PETA which analyzes which companies are creating cruelty free products and publishes its reports on its website. You can either search the database or check the lists here.

Join our beauty without bunions project. You can achieve the perfect close to skin shave, great lather without the animals suffering. Apart from not using disposable razors or razors tested on animals you can do more.

Don’t use shaving brushes made of animal hair. Simply forget the badger, goat, boars and horses brushes. There are a number of synthetic brushes that will serve you well and at the same time will be kind to animals. Apply the same principles to the cosmetic products you use – the aftershave and the shaving cream or soap. Refer to the database listed above – they have excellent suggestions for exact products you can use.

It’s very simple. Just commit to it, guys.
