About Razor MD:
Unofficially the company was founded in the 1920's, in the basement of my great grandfathers Brooklyn pharmacy and later expanded upon at my grand fathers pharmacy and eventually my fathers own Manhattan pharmacy. All were registered pharmacists, chemists had a passion for learning how to find a way to make better products. They were not happy with the selection of straight razors available so they decided to make their own. They sold them in the pharmacy and gained a local following while perfecting the craft over the next few decades. Unbeknownst to me they also made home-made shave creams, pre-shave oils & post shave products, This I never knew but was very intrigued to say the least...
Fast forward to 1979, we incorporate as Razor MD and I entered the business. I began to see room to include Gillette compatible razors & shave brushes and ways to expand our distribution outside of NYC. One day I was at my grandfathers pharmacy helping out in the basement and stumbled upon an old handwritten notebook that dated back to the early 1930s with what looked like recipes for shave products they had been making. My father explained more of the story behind this. He said my great grandfather & grandfather had sensitive skin while at same time they had thick, coarse beards so they needed special shave cream that wasn't available in marketplace. This intrigued me so much that my father and I started to experiment in our lab and re-create shave creams, pre-shave oils and post shave balms, for our own use and to pay homage. After a few shaves we knew we had something and thus the Rx shave collection was Re-born.
The Rx Shave Collection is a true all natural, American made line of hand-crafted shave products. Manufactured with only the best ingredients, we wanted to bring my families recipes back to life and make available to men from every walk of life. It's the prescription for the perfect shave.
