Rose & Thorne was created as a result of my search to find a replacement for my plastic razor that was both environmentally friendly and designed beautifully.
I entered the world of ‘double edge safety razors’ to find they ticked every ‘eco’ box, but were predominantly aimed at men and looked like they belonged in a toolbox not a bathroom.
Trying to find out how to use a double edge safety razor was also challenging, all the guidance was tailored for men and their faces; not women or the different parts of our bodies.
After persevering and muddling through I discovered nothing to fear from double edge safety razors or razor blades. In fact I was saving money, my razor bumps had reduced and ultimately it was the best shave of my life.
So I set out to spread the word amongst women, create everything I had failed to find and to reclaim the double edge safety razor for women and the world.
I hope you enjoy the benefits of shaving sustainably as much as I do.
