When it comes to a cruelty-free beauty routine, an often overlooked product are cruelty-free razors. To many, finding cruelty-free razors can also seem next to impossible. Sadly, many mainstream shaving brands are owned by companies who test on animals. Odds are that if you have yet to swap out your razor you aren’t using a cruelty-free one. Most brands also use moisturizing strips that contain ingredients derived from animals, such as lanolin.
Thankfully, there are cruelty-free razors out there that work great and are also vegan. There are also lots of great cruelty-free and vegan shaving creams as well. In this post, I share the best cruelty-free razors for men and women with you.
This is the most recent update of a post I originally published on January 5, 2014.
There are three brands that make cruelty-free razors. While it would be great if there were more, these three cruelty-free brands make nice products that will help keep your skin smooth and stubble free.
Preserve makes unisex cruelty-free razors in two different styles – a 3 blade or a 5 blade. Preserve is known for not just being cruelty-free, but also an eco-friendly brand as well. All of their products are made from recycled plastic containers. Their cruelty-free razor blade refills will work with the handles from some mainstream brands.
Every Man Jack
Every Man Jack started out as a cruelty-free mens skin care company and they have recently added cruelty-free razors to their line. With six blades, this cruelty-free razor will give a close shave every time.
Personna makes mens and womens style cruelty-free razors. They also make a lot of dupes for popular razors, as well as disposable razors which can be handy when traveling. New to cruelty-free and want to save some money? Their cruelty-free razor refills also fit the handles for most mainstream brands as well.
Popular cruelty-free razors from Personna are the Tri-Flexxx Women’s system, Halo 5-Blade Women’s system, Tri-Flexxx Men’s system, Comfort Touch disposables. Cruelty-free razor blade refills are available for the Halo 5-Blade, Tri-Flexx for men, and Tri-Flexxx for women.
Note: Personna is cruelty-free, but they are owned by Edgewell Personal Care. Edgewell Personal Care is also cruelty-free but owns other brands that are not cruelty-free.
