Looking for a cruelty-free razor for a smooth and comfortable shave? You’ll be happy to hear that there are plenty of razor options from brands that do not conduct, commission, or support animal testing! And in this product guide, I’m going to share a few I would recommend!
But first, you’ll want to avoid shaving products and razors from brands like Gillette, BIC, Venus, Braun, and Joy as all of these companies are not cruelty-free.
Instead, you can find several cruelty-free shaving razors and blades from brands that don’t test on animals and are 100% cruelty-free, like the ones listed in this product guide! We also have a list of cruelty-free and vegan shaving cream.
In this guide, there are razors for men, razors for women, and even some razors that are made from recycled materials, or even better — some that are plastic-free!
