Recommending the Preserve Titanium Razor to others ever since I found it on Pinterest, I decided to finally try it for myself. One of the many things I like about it is the plastic handle is BPA free and made from recycled materials.
My nickel allergy primarily reacts when I eat foods high in nickel. Nickel builds up in our body over time. For many allergic to nickel, the severity of our nickel allergy and nickel food allergy increases until we limit our exposure to nickel. Switching out my stainless steel razor for a nickel free titanium razor is one of the many products I’ve recently changed.
I visited the Preserve website and decided to purchase the Preserve Travel Set for $16.50, as I feel it’s a better value than the single razor handle with only two blades for $8.50. The travel set includes the razor blade with 2 razors, a box of 4 replacement titanium blades and a travel toothbrush.
When I received my purchase in the mail, I only noted the 4 replacement blades in the package. I contacted customer service, as the travel set said it came with 6 total blades. Preserve’s customer service quickly responded to my inquiry and informed me the set included the 4 replacement blades, the blade on the razor handle and another razor inside the packaging.
Excited to use my new razor, I lather my skin using Cetaphil Deep Cleansing Face & Body Bar for All Skin Types (affiliate link). The ingredients in this soap include: Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Stearric Acid, Sodium Tallowate, Water, Sodium Cocoate, Sodium Stearate, Glycerin, Sodium Chloride, PEG-20, Butyl Avocadate, Petrolatum, Sodium Isethionate, Sodium Isostearoyl Lactylate, Pentasodium Pentetate, Sucrose Cocoate, Masking Fragrance, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Propyl Gallate, Titanium Dioxide, may also contain Sodium Palm Kernelate.
When looking for various cosmetic products, I usually cross referenced each ingredient in with the Environmental Working Group, a non-profit that lobbies, researches and educates about toxins in our health and beauty products, environment, water, food, agriculture. I like to use their Skin Deep Database to research individual ingredients to see if the overall health concerns and reasons for the ingredient. To use the database, you enter the ingredient in the purple search bar (right under the main menu). Then you’ll be directed to another page where you can “refine your search” and select that what you’re searching is a product, ingredient or another option.
When first trying my Preserve Titanium Razor, I admit I hadn’t shaved for some time. To ensure I didn’t cut myself, I used plenty of shaving cream and firmly pressed the razor on my skin. The razor worked great when using it with enough shaving cream. Previously I used a stainless steel Gillette men’s razor and I would experience a terrible rash under my armpits. After using the Preserve Titanium Razor, I didn’t have to deal with an annoying or painful rash under my armpits! I will continue to recommend the Preserve Titanium Razor for anyone with a nickel allergy.
