What material is used in eco-friendly razor?

As people’s environmental awareness continues to increase, degradable plastics are gradually coming into people’s sight. People value fallen leaves returning to their roots, and those who make plastics also hope that they can “fall leaves returning to their roots” and, after completing their mission, return to nature and become one with nature.

As a result, biodegradable eco-friendly plastics came into being. What are biodegradable plastics? The following is an introduction to the most representative biodegradable plastics.This material is used in eco-friendly razor.

Biodegradable Material

Biodegradable plastic refers to plastic that can be completely decomposed into low molecular compounds under the action of microorganisms. Environmentally friendly razors on the market are mainly divided into 2 categories. 100% biodegradable razors and semi-degradable razors.

PLA, PHA, PCL, PBS/PBSA, aliphatic aromatic copolyester, PVA, carbon dioxide copolymer are 100% biodegradable materials. Among them, PLA materials are widely used in razor products.

In order to save costs, many razors on the market use semi-degradable materials, that is, half biodegradable materials + plastic, so half are degradable into carbon dioxide and water and half are non-degradable.

For example, the popular wheat straw material on the market, coagulant is often added when making the product, and some plastic (PP) is also added to make it, so as to create a durable and not fragile product. This product is also biodegradable, but only half of it biodegrades, and half of it is still plastic.

About PLA

PLA is a new 100% biodegradable material made from starch raw materials derived from renewable plant resources (such as corn). It has good biodegradability and can be completely degraded by microorganisms in nature after use, eventually generating carbon dioxide and water without polluting the environment. This is very beneficial to protecting the environment, zero plastic, eco-friendly. It is a recognized environmentally friendly material.

PLA products are non-toxic, non-irritating, easy to process and form, and have high strength. However, they are brittle, have poor toughness, and have a slow crystallization rate, which limits their application in engineering plastics. At present, the production, sales, and use of degradable plastics are gradually transitioning from demonstration and promotion to large-scale industrialization.

About Wheat Straw

Wheat straw is made from 30-40% plant-based materials and polypropylene (PP). This results in a durable, food-grade material that won’t break easily when used by your guests.

After harvest, wheat straw, an agricultural byproduct, is typically burned onsite, contributing to air pollution. By incorporating wheat straw into products, Sustayne provides an additional revenue stream for farmers while diverting straw from pollutive burning.

Additionally, by introducing wheat straw into PP, use of conventional plastic is reduced.

Overall, choosing wheat straw products helps repurpose waste while reducing environmental impact. However, it is worth noting that wheat straw is an eco- friendly material, but it is also a semi-biodegradable material.

When you want to buy a product or razor made from eco-friendly materials, you can find out whether the product is 100% biodegradable or just degradable. You can get a rough idea of the materials used in this environmentally friendly product.

From nature, return to nature.

I believe that in the near future, under the global “plastic-free” initiative, people will use their endless wisdom to find alternatives to traditional plastics, and more emerging environmentally friendly plastics will continue to emerge. It is foreseeable that more and more degradable products will enter our lives in the future. “Plastic restriction” life is not far away from us. Plastic-free has become one of the requirements for purchasing products.

Today, as environmental problems become increasingly severe, the birth of degradable plastics has brought new vitality to green development.

We believe that in the future, biodegrade eco friendly materials will replace traditional plastics, making our lives healthier and more environmentally friendly.
