We've got everything you need for the ultimate close shave - no matter what you're shaving. Our stainless steel safety razor is by far our favorite sustainable swap, and our unpackaged, unscented, ultra-creamy shave soap bar is its perfect companion.
- (1) 3-piece stainless steel safety razor
- (10) stainless steel refill blades
- (1) shave soap bar.
Please note that all of our soaps are made by hand and therefore may differ slightly from those pictured.
Ingredients (Shave Soap Bar)
Shea Butter, Babassu Oil, Castor Oil, Jojoba Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Potassium Hydroxide, Coconut Milk
Care (Safety Razor)
Store in a dry spot between uses. Got rust? Soak in vinegar and baking soda and wipe clean. For a more detailed care guide, check out our Safety Razor Care + Maintenance 101 guide.
Packaging + End of Life
This razor should last many years to come, but should it need retiring, the entire razor can be recycled with metal recycling. The razor is packaged in a hemp travel bag, which can be home composted.
Razor blades can be returned to Albatross for recycling. Details can be found here. If you're in Tacoma, you can return to blades to us, and we'll send them back to Albatross for you. Do not put blades in your curbside recycling bin, as that is a hazard for the people working in the recycling facility.
The shave soap bar will either be unpackaged or wrapped in reused kraft paper, which can be home composted.
The safety razor and blades are sourced from Berkeley, California. The shave soap bar is handmade right here in Tacoma, Washington.

So glad I finally made the switch!
After years of disappointment with disposable razors, I finally decided to give the safety razor a try, despite the intimidation of dealing with razor blades. And I am SO HAPPY I finally tried it! After watching both your tutorials and those from Albatross, I have learned the shaving technique and haven't injured myself once! My legs are smoother than they have ever been, and the lather from the shave soap is luxurious. I never thought I would enjoy shaving until now!
Awesome Shave Bundle... Even more impressive packaging
I purchased the shave bundle for my husband as a Christmas present. He's always used your typical razor such as Dollar Shave and didn't have any complaints. However, as we are working at slowly replacing our plastic products with more sustainable options, a safety razor was the obvious choice. He's really enjoying it so far! We are both excited to have found a great alternative and don't really see him ever going back to a plastic razor. NOW let's go to the really winner in my eyes. Honestly, I could have purchased this exact razor many other places, but the packaging A Drop in the Ocean uses to ship will have me coming back time and time again. My first purchase from them was some floss awhile ago and it arrived in a reused tea box with a hand written note that was written on scrap paper. I was blown away. I had never seen a company who claimed to be sustainable ACTUALLY prove to be sustainable through and through. The fact that every piece of the packaging was reused and minimal will have me come back over and over again. If I can purchase it here, I will purchase it here.
