Beard, Smooth-Faced or Moustached, Norse Has It All

April 28, 2021

We all want the best products for ourselves but also what’s best for the planet too.  This is why Valley Mill is proud to introduce to you Norse and their range of eco-friendly shaving and male grooming products.   

Whether you are maintaining your beard, moustache or perhaps making sure there’s a lack of them, then Norse have affordable male grooming products for you.

Using sustainable and natural materials, Norse hand makes their range of male eco-friendly shaving and grooming products in Kingston upon Thames.

About Norse

Founded by Iain, Norse was created with the aim to create affordable male grooming products that did not compromise on quality. Iain also wanted to fulfil his quest to have a sweet-smelling beard that was itch-free!

In their bid to create plastic-free shaving, Norse have a range of zero waste safety razors. In turn, this helps you to cut down on single use products.

Keeping It Local

Norse razors are produced specifically for the company in the steel capital of the UK, Sheffield (cue Tom Jones You Can Leave Your Hat On for all of you ‘The Full Monty’ movie lovers). 

Norse use only natural ingredients, such as essential oils. This skincare range comes in recyclable packaging to help you focus on keeping not only your hair and skin healthy but our environment too!

Shaving The Zero Waste Way

Norse reusable safety razor available at Valley Mill

Plastic-free razors are not only sustainable, but are a slick and sharp investment too. Norse razors are the way forward. The environment will thank you and your pocket will too.

Goodbye To Disposable

This high-quality stainless steel razor comes in a classic design that really has stood the test of time. Resulting in less irritation to the skin, this razor has a chrome single blade and is double-edged for safety. These razors use standard replaceable razor blades.

Why Ditch Single Use Plastic?

The harmful effects of plastic is now seen worldwide. Plastic is in our air, our water and our food. Each one of us have a responsibility in reducing plastic pollution.

End Plastic Pollution

One of Earth Day’s campaigns is End Plastic Pollution. This campaign draws attention to the harmful effects of plastic in our environment. They provide instruction on how to cut plastic use and create a heathier world. You can read more here.

Time To Lather Up

Norse Shaving Soap available at Valley Mill

Norse’s handmade natural scented luxury shaving soap produces a rich, luxurious lather that helps your razor glide over your face and achieve a perfect shave. Lather up with sandalwood or peppermint scent.

How To Build That Lather

Wet your face with warm water which softens the hair and relaxes the skin and facial muscles making shaving easier. Dip your shaving brush into hot water, and then using a circular motion with brush on the soap, create a rich lather. Use the brush to apply the lather to your face allowing the brush to lift the hairs making them easier to shave. Shave with the grain of the beard.

Irritated Post-Shave Skin Be Gone

Norse aftershave balm available at Valley Mill

Norse aftershave balm uses a combination of oils and butters to gently repair and protect the skin. Perfect to use post-shaving to help reduce pores, itching and irritation. It’s also a great natural alternative to help keep your skin fresh and nourished.

Using Jojoba essential oil and Shea butter, this aftershave balm is deeply hydrating, anti-inflammatory and easily absorbed into the skin, resulting in a light and non-greasy application.
