The theme of this brush ties in with our 'African Rainbow' range in a new way in that the bulk part of resin is replaced with coarse salt, and not just any type of salt either, one of the purest forms of salt on the planet!
This salty feature makes this brush even more charged up on the eco-friendly side as we only use about a third of the resin we'd normally use. Although you lose some visual attributes of the resin, you gain exceptional grip as the salt on the exposed surface of the brush is dissolved in water and leaves these pockets that feels will enhance grip dramatically, especially around the curves of the brush and your fingers. This salty used less than half the resin we'd use for a full resin brush.
Some interesting additional features we discovered is a brush that retains heat in the handle a lot better while in use (I fully submerge my brushes in hot water prior to a shave), and then becomes chillingly cold when rested after use. You may detect some more salt residue as you use your brush, nothing to worry and you can simply wipe it away with water, this in on account of some more inner crystals that are dissolving as we can only spend so much time rinsing a brush handle. I think it would be so cool if all the salt could be washed out completely, it would look wicked! Who knows maybe after you have used it enough, so give it horns!
This brush is all resin and salt, nothing else, it is fitted with a 24 mm synthetic silvertip knot. The knot has been lathered and cleaned and is ready for its first use right out of the starting blocks.
The grip on this is amazing, if you press it into your palm with your fingers and somebody rips it from your hand you will be good to go for a life in crime....no fingerprints left!
The brush stands 146 mm tall, with the loft at 60 mm. It has a waist of 21 mm and a belly of 36 mm. As it stands the brush weighs 107 grams...pretty in purple!
