Whether you are new to wet shaving, or an old hand at it, Parker Safety Razor has a product that may be worth attention. Shaving brushes are an integral part of the wet shaving process, with the brush providing a thick lather to soften and lift the hairs of a man’s beard in preparation for shaving. Current interest in wet shaving appears to be a return to a traditional method of grooming. For the environmentally conscious consumer, using a brush is an Earth-friendly alternative. There are no empty cans to dispose of, since the shaving brush helps make lather until it wears out.
The quality of the brush has an effect on the outcome of the shave. Badger hair is the best quality material for making the bristles for a shaving brush. Silvertip badger hairs are the highest grade of badger hair for making the product. Parker Safety Razor 100% Silvertip Badger Bristle Shaving Brush weighs only 7.2 ounces.
