Icky, sad, depressing fact: many shaving products are tested on animals. Another whack reality is that a lot of shaving products contain animal ingredients. WOMPS.
Thirdly, a less depressing but still somewhat of a bummertude: we ladies are expected by society to weed wack our leg scruffies and arm pit fros.
DISCLAIMER: I’m all for flaunting my body fur (you can ask my hubby, this is not a rare occurance ), but every once in a while I like to assist my body in keeping cool temps by layering down (gettin’ my shave on). Don’y worry y’all, I’m a feminist through and through, and this has nothing to do with whether I’m hairy or not on any given day.
Anyhoo, here are a handful of pretty awesome vegan and cruelty-free shave products! Feel free to add to the list in the comments section below.
Personna Mystique Razor, $5.99 – M’ kay, finally a somewhat heavy duty ladies razor that is vegan and cruelty-free. The patented system is is designed design to provide a super smooth, close and comfortable shave. It has a pivoting head with an anti-drag blades, and a Vitamin E and aloe lubricating strip that reduces irritation and moisturizes.
Preserve Razor, $8.50 – This is not my favorite vegan razor (too gentle, not as hardcore as Personna’s) but I feel it’s worth mentioning because it’s super eco. It’s made from recycled yogurt cups, it’s unisex, easy to grip, and is completely recyclable after use.
