FIND ANSWERS TO SOME OF OUR MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are Albatross razors for men or women?
Our razors are for all genders and all shaving needs!
We believe in eliminating the disparity between pricing that men and women pay for the similar products. Overwhelmingly, products marketed to women are priced considerably higher compared to the male version of the same products. For example, women pay nearly 48% more for products like shampoo, conditioner, and gel. Moreover, shaving products are in 2nd place for biggest price hikes-- where women will spend roughly 11% more than men for essentially the same plastic razors and cartridges!
Switch to Albatross for a superior shave, equal pricing AND a waste-free solution! It’s a win for all!
What is the difference between the 3-Piece and the Butterfly razors?
The Butterfly is our most popular style and offers the easiest solution for replacing your blade with a quick bottom twist to secure it. The Butterfly XL has the same features with a longer handle length at 4.5” compared to the standard 3.5”.
The 3-Piece razor takes a bit more effort to change the blade, but this style can be disassembled into a compact size. The 3-Piece is the preferred model for those who travel often.
How do I take care of my Albatross safety razor?
Like any good tool, taking care of it will make it last longer.
Here’s how to clean your razor:
- Rinse all the soap/ hair/ gunk from your razor after each use.
- Shake your razor to dry it. Using a towel to dry will make your blades duller.
- Ensure your razor is stored in a dry spot to increase the life of your blades.
- If you notice any corrosion, rub that spot vigorously with a terry cloth towel, or a small piece of emery cloth.
- Ensure your razor is clean and dry to make it last longer!
How can I learn to shave with a safety razor for the first time?
Follow these steps to get a close and comfortable shave with an Albatross safety razor:
- First, make sure you are using a good lubricating shaving cream or soap. This is critical to ensuring the blade can glide smoothly over your skin.
- Hold the razor at an angle of about 30 degrees between the blade and your skin.
- Do not apply much pressure or pull too hard; the weight of the razor itself is acting on the blade and that is generally sufficient for a great, close shave.
- Use short strokes, especially in the beginning.
- Rinse the blade often as you go.
- For an optimal shave, try shaving after a shower or steam bath. The heat, water, and steam help to soften the hair for an even better shave. Note: this is not necessary, but will give you a luxurious shave experience!
