One of the least green things about me is that I use disposable razors. It’s shameful, I know, but I’ve been known to use the same one for at least two weeks in hopes of being less wasteful, and I simply cannot afford the upkeep that a reusable Venus or an Intuition requires. The complete deterioration of the moisturizing strip or a serious case of razor burn are usually my signals to throw out my old razor and replace it with another, and unfortunately it’s usually the latter. I’ve never really given much thought to the elusive moisturizing strip until recently, but my present curiosity concerning its ingredients has been met with very little information on the internet. They can’t just be made with vitamin E and aloe, right? That would make too much sense. Regardless, I should probably be well-informed considering how often I shave (very) and how much of my body comes in contact with with moisturizing strip (at least 1/2 of it). I plan to check out the packages of each and every kind of disposable razor the next time I find myself at the store, but in the meantime….I’m curious to hear your thoughts/findings.
Have you any clue what’s in the average moisturizing strip? Do you know where I can easily locate this information?
