Bundubeard Prepo oil.

What is this? It's a pre-shave oil that can also be used as a post shave oil (pre-po), we also dubbed it Vona olie 'vo(or)' and 'na' being the translation for pre- and post in Afrikaans.   \Why did we develop this? Mostly because we think most pre-shave oils are formulated with too much focus on the beard and actual shave, and too little focus on your skin and its condition, both pre- and post shave. We also wanted to produce another grooming first, and provide a value for money product to our customers and the South African market. I...

The Sigma #6000 whetstone

I can certainly understand some people's obsession with getting edges to be mindblowingly sharp, with that comes the desire to own, and use an array of whetstones, oil stones, diamond plates and various other abrasives. They come in many forms, shapes, sizes and compositions, and one often pick up variances from the very same product, even more so when using natural stones. When you start sharpening stuff on whetstones you soon realize whetstones are not just whetstones, the user develops likes and dislikes, emotions of looking forward to working with one stone and dreading taking up another.

Even the blind can see....

I recently met this very cool couple Douw and Briony, they are both blind and live in a flat in Roodepoort. Apart from being two amazing individuals, they are keen Zero Wasters, in other words they are adapting their lifestyle to generate less waste, live cleaner, and aim to develop wiser consumer behaviour. They buy products as natural as possible, and are also trying to buy plastic free or unpackaged. Douw has been surfing the net (how does he even do that being blind!) looking for ways to green-up his grooming routine and came across our website. After a bit...


Razor blade disposal

Razor blade disposal

What you got to love about safety razors is the fact that they are environmentally friendly; you'll only need a shoe box full of blades to last you 50 years and they contain no non recyclable plastic bits! Spending a few bob to fill up a box of blades makes lots of sense, it saves you loads of money, takes up very little space and gives you the peace of mind that you will be knocking out cool shaves for years while others will be looting stores or scraping beard off their chins with old food tins found in landfill!...
