12358315_10153146859071300_887271077_nRazrUp is a great idea transformed into a great consumer product that has many benefits, both financial and health. Research shows that clean razors shave the skin surface better, and result in fewer cuts and razor burn.

It’s also a fact that clean, dry razors last longer because razors left in wet, soapy water start to corrode and break down the edge and lubricant strips.

Finally, from the perspective of good hygiene, it’s very smart to maintain your razor in a clean condition in order to prevent the spread of disease and infections. It’s not a good idea to share a razor with anyone else. We recently received a question from one of our customers:

Is it possible to contract HCV from a shared razor or toothbrush?

There are no documented cases of transmission, but the CDC warns that people should not share toothbrushes, razors, or other personal care items: They might have small amounts of infected blood on them.

If you or someone in your household is infected with HCV, it’s very important to take steps to prevent transmission. Do not share personal items such as toothbrushes, razors, or manicuring scissors — supplies that could be contaminated with tiny flecks of blood. Avoid contact with open cuts or sores.

The CDC stresses that the hepatitis C virus is NOT spread by casual contact or by breast feeding, hugging or kissing, sneezing, coughing, or sharing utensils, drinking glasses, food, or water.

RazrUp is just good, clean common sense. The price is very reasonable and the benefits are enormous. Most of our users report that RazrUp pays for itself in just a few weeks because their razors last much longer.
