What's So Special?

When it comes to cleansing your skin, there are so many options out there, it can be difficult to know which is best for your skin.

To help you out, we've put together a list of reasons to choose silicone over hands, cotton wool, wipes, nylon brushes, or anything other type of cleansing device.

Unlike traditional brushes, the bristles on a silicone cleansing brush are non-porous, meaning they are naturally resistant to bacterial buildup.

This means you don't have to disinfect a silicone brush and you don't have to keep replacing the brush head.

In fact, the naturally antibacterial properties of silicone brushes make them 35 times more hygienic than standard nylon brushes.


A silicone cleansing brush is a one-time purchase, since silicone is durable and long-lasting.

Most traditional nylon facial brush heads will need to be replaced every couple of months due to bacteria buildup. A silicone brush head, on the other hand, will last forever.

This also means less waste - no extra packaging each time a brush head is replaced and no piles of makeup wipes making their way into the ocean.

Soft and Gentle

Silicone has naturally soft and gentle touch points, meaning that the bristles can get deep in the pores to remove dirt, oils and other residue without causing any damage or irritation to the skin.

Effectiveness In fact, silicone brushes are proven to remove up to 99.5% of residue. 

That's 10 times more effective than washing your face using only your hands, cotton wool or makeup wipes.

And while nylon bristle brushes can clean the pores effectively, they can also cause damage to the skin cells, leaving your skin irritated or scarred.


Silicone is a naturally waterproof material, making silicone cleansing devices convenient for use in the bath or shower.

This also means they're easy to keep clean - just a quick rinse under the faucet is all that's needed.
