Since the other halfs organic/none addative kick I'm now back to using a shaving soap and brush (made form organic badgers, honest) what do you use.

And for the hirsute ladies of the forum just the lubricant not the area please...it would be far to much information :D
 
None of the above!

Neat Savlon and brush, foams up nicely.

(Don't try this at home:p, was advised to try this by my doctor)

Oh I was rather looking forward to that. For what it's worth I had a lady friend, long time ago, who took to errrrr......shaving that bit in to a heart shape. I have no idea why but it was rather ermm....nice.

I had an ex that had one that looked lie Hitlers Tash, god knows why but it saved on the tooth picks (sorry had to be said, flame proof suit now on)
 
I shave in the shower, so don't use anything special. I lather up with my Lush bodywash and shave away......

Can't use many common or garden products because of the vegan thing.

Out of interest what do you use?

We are slowly working our way through the Neals Yard products
 
Most of the Lush stuff is vegan. I use Tramp body wash for soap and shampoo and I use their aramaco deodorant as well.

Original Source stuff is also vegan. Don't know how 'organic' they both are though.
 
I have only been wet shaving for 2 or 3 weeks, previously to that I have only ever shaved with an electric thing.

Just got an aerosol of foam stuff, reminds me of crazy foam but it seems to do the job.

So do people get all organicy/vegany about soap now then:eek: I have some beef drippin' in the fridge, probably made out of chemical cows, I might try shaving with that tomorrow:D

cheers, Tim
 
Cold water and a Bowie knife!!!

If I can't find my knife then any bit of broken glass will do:D

Nah, foam for me
 
People have been getting all vegany about soap since people started getting all vegany. That's the point of being a vegan. :)

errrrm, so what is the point of being a vegan:confused:

I remember when I did a bit of pizza delivering and some customers wanted to know what the chip were cooked in 'cos if it was animal fats they didn't want to know. Bloody spud in'it, what does it matter what it is cooked in:rolleyes:

cheers, Tim

I feel any form of explanation may be lost on you..........

However, the point of being vegan is to go through life without causing any unnecessary suffering to animals. So, cooking chips in animal fat means that an animal would have died to provide the cooked chips, so it's a no-no. However, eating a raw 'bloody spud' would be fine.

The official definition is:

A vegan is someone seeking a lifestyle free from animal products for the benefit of people, animals and the environment.
A vegan therefore eats a plant-based diet free from all animal products, including milk, eggs and honey. Most vegans do not wear leather, wool or silk.

Veganism (also known as strict vegetarianism or pure vegetarianism) is a philosophy and lifestyle that avoids using animals and animal products for food, clothing and other purposes. In practice, a vegan (an adherent of veganism) commits to the abstention from consumption or use of animal products, including meat, fish, and poultry, animal gelatin, honey, eggs and dairy products, as well as articles made of silk, fur, wool, bone, leather, feathers, pearls, nacre, coral, sponges and other materials of animal origin. Vegans also avoid products that have been tested on animals. People become vegans for a variety of reasons, including ethical concerns for animal rights or the environment, as well as more personal reasons such as perceived health benefits and spiritual or religious concerns.[1][2]
A 2002 Time/CNN poll, found that 4% of American adults consider themselves vegetarians, and 5% of self-described vegetarians consider themselves vegans.[1] This suggests that 0.2% of American adults are vegans. Also in 2002, the UK Food Standards Agency reported that 5% of respondents self-identified as vegetarian or vegan. Though 29% of that 5% said they avoided "all animal products" only 5% reported avoiding dairy.[2] Based on these figures, approximately 0.25% of the UK population follow a vegan diet. The Times estimates there are 250,000 vegans in Britain.[3]
