When used in combination with the shaving bar, this brush provides a high-quality, luxurious shave without the waste. The bristles of this brush are made with horsehair, the most humanly sourced option and the wooden handle results in the most eco-friendly option for shaving. NOTE: This brush is natural hair that will have a scent. Before first use, soak bristles in white vinegar overnight, rinse and allow to dry. Repeat if necessary. Soured from Sebesta Apothecary, a women owned small business in Minneapolis.
