The Cali Blade Take Back Program:
CaliWoods takes sustainability seriously. In this world, it's impossible to be perfect when the whole system seems to be against our best intentions. BUT...something as small as changing your razor can save hundreds of pieces of plastic every year.
Better yet, if you send your used blades back to CaliWoods clean and dry, they will repurpose or recycle them! Once you have 40 or more blades, simply post them back.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I use the safety razor for underarms and bikini area?
Yes! Safe for the bikini areas of all genders.
The key of these areas is to use gentle pressure and pair your shaving with soap. Go slow here with short strokes. Holding the skin taut with your free hand will help. Starting with a larger area of your body first will give you the confidence to move into the Bikini area in no time.
I'm nervous about using one. How do they work?
The Cali Safety Razor works just like a plastic one - but better! You only replace the blades.
How safe are they? Will it cut me?
A safety razor will not cut you if you use proper technique.
Please note that you will not need to push the razor onto the skin like you do with a plastic one, simply let the weight of the razor do the job with a light drag along the skin.
How do I replace the blade?
You unscrew the head of the razor from the handle, place a blade between the two top plates, holding by the blunt edges (the short edge, the blade is on the long-edge). Screw the handle back on and shave away!
How often do I replace the blade?
This is very hair type dependant! On average this is 5 to 15 shaves.
For example, thick facial hair you will switch out the blade every 5 or so shaves. For fine leg hair or underarms one blade can last 15+ shaves. At only 43cents per blade, you will really notice the difference in cost and no more chucking cartridges in the bin - win!
Pro tip: If you don't shave often, remove the blade from the holding plates and dry between uses. This way your blade will last even longer. Remember not to keep your razor in the shower.
Is it as good as a plastic razor?
Better! A Cali Safety Razor has a very close, smooth shave. Customers often comment on how smooth they are feeling.
Are the safety razors good for all genders?
Yes! They are great for everyone.
Will my safety razor rust?
The holding plates and handle of the razor will not rust. The blades may rust after a time given they are often stored wet.
When this happens simply give any rust a generous rub with a towel/emery cloth or replace the blade. If you dry your blade each time (recommended for the infrequent shavers out there) then this won't happen.
Why should I make the switch?
Say hello to awesome, low waste shaves and goodbye to all those plastic razors and refill heads. Not only will you be reducing your waste but the using a CaliWoods Safety Razor will save you money too - all you need to replace is the blade!
Can I use regular soap?
Yes, there will be enough suds to make it work well. For the face some people might prefer a thicker shaving cream.
We recommend that you rinse the shaver well after each use to remove all the soap residue.
How many blades does each razor come with?
You get 5 blades with each razor just to get you started. We recommend buying a Razor Blade Refill Pack at the same time your order your razor. These means you won't run out of razor blades quickly, you maximise on shipping as well as reduce shipping packaging and courier carbon miles.
Are there any tips and tricks so I master these low waste shaves faster?
Don't push with the shaver like you do with plastic ones. The weight of the razor means a gentle drag will give you a close shave. Getting used to the angle at which you hold the razor is key. After a couple of shaves you will get the hang of it!
