What makes the SHAVENT so different from classic safety razors and plastic razors?

With SHAVENT we bring you a comfortable wet shave paired with elegance and freedom from plastic - and in the highest, long-lasting quality, locally produced.

What does that SHAVENT particularly?

For comparison, let's consider the razors for wet shaving that are best known and most widely used.

Classic safety razor

We know the safety razor, also known as the safety razor or torsion plane. These were used by our grandfathers and are still widely used today.

A safety razor consists of a handle and a rigid head in which there is a razor blade that is clamped using a simple principle. It can be used on both sides because the blade has two sharp sides.

The application requires a little practice. You always have to find the right angle that the blade must be at the face when shaving in order to achieve a smooth result. Shaving with a safety razor is very precise, but the risk of injury should not be underestimated. You have to be very focused when shaving, especially at the beginning

According to many manufacturers, the safety razor is not officially suitable as a ladyshave because the necessary shaving angle on the body cannot be maintained so reliably. Therefore, in many of the safety instructions from the plane manufacturer, you will find the note that the safety razor should not be used for body shaving. Many women still use the classic safety razor for body shaving, but they often have respect for its use and concerns that shaving with the safety razor could be too aggressive and women could easily injure themselves. Even so, many women buy a safety razor because they don't want to create so much plastic waste in the bathroom.

A safety razor is usually made of metal and is very durable. The blade can easily be replaced with a new one. Once bought, the safety razor is a very inexpensive way to shave because the replacement blades are inexpensive. In addition, the safety razor is very environmentally friendly because it is plastic-free and there is hardly any waste, the used razor blades are sent for metal recycling.

Conclusion:

+ precise, environmentally friendly, inexpensive to use, durable

- There may be a risk of injury for beginners, usually not suitable for body shaving

System razor with interchangeable head

The best known type of wet shave are the system razors. They are present everywhere in every supermarket, drugstore, online, in TV advertising. They are available from numerous manufacturers in many price ranges and in countless variants.

A system razor or oscillating head razor consists of a handle and an exchangeable head in which several cutting blades are arranged. With a simple mechanism, the entire cutting head can be replaced with a new one if necessary. System razors enable a very gentle shave.

The razor head is movable and automatically follows the contours of your face or the part of the body to be shaved. It is very easy to use and the risk of injury is low.

The oscillating head razors are also very suitable as a ladyshave, they are also available specifically as ladies' shavers.

A system razor is usually made of plastic with rubber, the replaceable razor heads are made of plastic and metal. This means that they are not recyclable and there is a huge amount of waste.

The handle wears off with daily use and becomes unsightly after a while, so this also ends up in the plastic waste

System razors are very inexpensive to buy, but the frequent purchase of replaceable heads can be expensive and produces a huge amount of waste.

Conclusion:

+ gentle, safe, comfortable, easy

- expensive to buy, makes you “dependent” on the razor manufacturer for buying replaceable heads, creates huge amounts of non-recyclable plastic waste

Disposable razors

Disposable razors are the cheapest variant of wet shaving. They are made in one piece, with a rigid head that contains one or more cutting blades. They are suitable for when you have forgotten your razor at home. They shouldn't be the daily way of shaving, because disposing of them creates a huge mountain of non-recyclable garbage.

So what makes the SHAVENT so special?

With the SHAVENT we have combined the advantages of a safety razor and a system razor in an extra-durable design!
