Combination boar bristle and synthetic fibre head with sandalwood handle. Technology has improved to allow some synthetic brushes to match even very good badger hair in water retention and cost.
Synthetics often are far stronger than any natural hair, this can mean that they last longer. It also provides a greater backbone (exactly what it sounds like, how ‘weak’ the hair feels when pushing onto the skin) even at greater lofts, so you can have synthetic brushes that are far bigger than natural hair ones. The fibers that it is constructed of are also designed to handle much higher temperatures and dry quicker too.
This brush creates a rich luxurious lather. Great for those that are new to using shaving soaps.
