Have you ever had a go at shaving soap? In case you’re a lady like me, presumably not. Shaving soap bars are a crucial segment of the wet shaving technique, even though it’s commonly reserved for men . It’s such a disgrace, however. Wet shaving with a shaving soap bar is more affordable, more environmentally friendly, does not contribute to global plastic waste and so much gentler on the skin in comparison to the conventional shaving techniques.
Here’s a complete guide for using zero waste shaving soap bars. Whether you are planning to make a switch or completely new to the subject we’ve got some takeaways for everyone.
The Benefits of Using a Zero-Waste Shaving Soap Bar
Why am I glorifying wet shaving rather than the conventional methods? Well, I’ve got these three big reasons for you.
Natural Ingredients: Let’s face it. Whether you are a guy or a girl, the normal shaving creams and foams that we use before shaving away to glory always end up with ingrown hairs and razor burn. Additionally, let me enlighten you with the fact that shaving gels and creams are loaded with toxic chemicals. On the other hand shaving soap bars are made with natural ingredients and don’t harm your skin or give you rashes. I see that as a big win for all genders.
Environmentally Friendly: Well if you aren’t convinced enough and still devoted to your shave gel canister then let me add that the chemicals in these shaving gels & creams always end up harming our ecology and environment. Besides bar soaps are so much less waste. They last so much longer and don’t end up in landfills.
Loving Towards Your Skin: Is there anyone on the planet who can claim that they never experienced irritated skin, razor burns, or ingrown hairs, while shaving? Shaving with a bar soap is so much easier and gentle on our skin. You know whats the best part? Most shave soap bars have specific ingredients that will prevent your skin from becoming irritated or giving you rashes. I doubt if any of the conventional gels can boast that quality.
How to get that perfect shave with a shaving soap bar?
Shaving with a soap bar is easier than you think. All you need is a razor, a brush, and a bar of soap. Simply follow the below routine to get that perfect shave.
You need to get your skin ready for the shave
Obviously, the first step to ensure that you make your skin wet. By doing this you ensure that your skin isn’t too dry because that could potentially give you a feeling of irritation on your skin and lead to cuts and bumps.
It is usually recommended to exfoliate before you shave. But our Tangie zero-waste shaving soap bar comes with exfoliating properties by default. Our shave bar ensures that you get the smoothest shave possible.
Lather up your skin
Sufficiently load up your brush by twirling it on top of the soap for some time. Building your foam in the bowl is the customary strategy, however, lathering directly on your skin gives you an additional layer of exfoliation.
Apply the soap wherever you want to start shaving
If you lathered your soap in a bowl, use your brush to apply it to your skin. If you decided to build your lather directly on your skin, start by rubbing your loaded brush on the area you want to shave. Using a small amount of pressure, keep rubbing in a circular motion until a lather starts to form. You’re looking for something with the consistency of whipped cream. Once the relevant area is covered with lather, you’re good to go.
In the event that you lathered up in the container, utilize your brush to apply it to your skin. In the event that you chose to lather your foam straightforwardly on your skin, start by gently applying the brush on the parts you need to shave. Make sure you are sufficiently covered with foam.
Shave your way to glory
Now that you are all lathered up you can start shaving with your razor. Make sure to use short strokes and don’t apply too much pressure. We usually recommend using a stainless steel razor which can be reused by simply changing the blades. However, using a heavy razor ensures that you don’t have to apply too much pressure.
Overall — the whole thing is much less scary than you think it would be. But, we need to understand that traditional soap gels and foams come in aerosol canisters. These empty aerosol even though are recyclable in many municipal recycling programs within the US, but not all. The waste from traditional shaving methods can create a hell lot of waste. Using shaving soap bars on the other hand causeno waste from unnecessary single-use packaging. Secondly, they last a really long time, and they’re easy to travel with
