Default [Veg] Vegan shaving supplies?

I've been thinking about carrying some kind of shaving cream and cruelty-free razors in the Veg Sex Shop. Since I haven't shaved anything in ages, I'm curious what you vegan shavers out there use.

Has anyone out there used the Preserve razor? I saw it in another vegan store, and it looks pretty spiffy: http://www.recycline.com/products/preserverr.html The company recycles Stoneyfield dairy yogurt containers into their products, I wonder if that would bother any vegans out there.

I already order Jason's lube, and was thinking of carrying their shaving lotion: http://www.jason-natural.com/products/mens.php Anyone tried that one?

i've used the preserve razors, they're as good as any other i've used.. i remember clogging them up, but that was probably because i hadn't shaved in awhile..

I shave my face fairly regularly (and the shavings go into my compost pile)and would like an alternative to the plastic, disposable razors I get at the 99 Cents Store. One concern I have about getting the kind mentioned in this thread is packaging materials (e.g.,plastics, paper).

But I have to stop using the plastic ones I've been getting, which are only good for one to three uses.

Yea i geuss one of the main problems with veggie razors and the like is that a higher percentage of vegetarians dont shave as regularly as the average meat eater does. Thats not to say vegetarians don't shave, or even most don't shave, but the market is being narrowed down substantially by appealing to the veggie crowd and even more so within that crowd by the 'au naturelles'

Of course the Enviro-Friendly movement is exploding right now in the only 2 e-commerce economies that count (that is, have access to and actualyl do, spend money online) Western Europe, and North America. If you were to market yourself and the products beyond just veggie, but actually enviromentally friendly, you might get more takers.
