A styptic pencil is a medicated stick generally made of powdered crystal from an alum block and a wax binder which is pressed into a lipstick size and shape.
Styptic Pencils are used to seal small cuts and nicks, especially those caused during wet shaving.
Before the days of the multi blade razor the styptic pencil was a necessary part of a man's shaving kit and was used to seal cuts caused by careless shaving, although many people still continue to use styptic pencils with their double edged safety and cut throat razors.
Styptic Pencils are used when cut yourself wet shaving. They will stop the bleeding immediately and kill bacteria.
Apply it directly to a cut or nick, which helps stops the bleeding by causing blood vessels to contract at the site of the wound.
When applied to a cut it does burn slightly, but most cuts stop bleeding in minutes and heal by the end of the day.
Simply dab this pencil on the bleeding point and bleeding will miraculously stop!
You can use your styptic pencil if you fall victim to thorns, stinging nettles and violent ex's.
Perfectly sized for home and travel, each styptic pencil is about the size of a lipstick.
