The handle is made of FSC-certified bamboo, one of the most well-known sustainable materials. Bamboo Hybrid Razor uses 59% less plastic than DORCO’s three-blade disposable plastic razor by adopting a bamboo handle, a PCR connector and replaceable cartridge.
SEOUL, South Korea, April 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — DORCO, a trusted razor brand with over 65 years of heritage, announced its R&D achievements related to Bamboo Hybrid Razor, which is scheduled for release later this year. Amid tightening regulations on plastic use, Bamboo Hybrid Razor was developed in response to the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) sector’s shift from plastics toward recyclable materials.
Bamboo Hybrid Razor is a sustainable product designed to reduce plastic waste from disposable razors. It consists of bamboo for the handle, cartridge, post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials for the connector, and fully recyclable paper for product packaging. Bamboo Hybrid Razor also has a unique detachable structure that makes it easier to reuse the handle by separating the cartridge, the connector and the handle.
Bamboo handle minimizing the risks of deforestation
Bamboo Hybrid Razor’s handle is made of 100% natural bamboo, which grows up to 30cm in one day, making it a sustainable option that can be collected without causing deforestation. Bamboo materials used for DORCO’s hybrid products are carefully selected and FSC(Forest Stewardship Council)-certified. Moreover, the bamboo handle is incredibly durable and can be used up to five months based on up to 2 weeks of use per blade*. Notably, the logo on the handle is engraved with laser to avoid the use of chemical coating and ink.
* 1 handle + 8 blades in a bundle; 2+ weeks of use per blade
A hybrid razor incorporated with DORCO’s core technology
Bamboo Hybrid Razor’s connector is environmentally designed with 97% of the product from recycled material. The handle, connector, and cartridge are all detachable, making it easier to reuse the handle. Bamboo Hybrid Razor’s open-flow cartridge lets hair stubbles and foam rinse away more easily for a more hygienic shaving experience. The lubricating strips enriched with Vitamin E and Aloe Vera helps the razor glide to ensure a smooth shave. The
