Please keep in mind that formulations will have a different effect on natural and synthetics fibers. Since most brush collections include both, it is best to test a cleaner on all of your brushes to make the most informed decision.
Of course, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Aromatherapy Brush Cleanser. With our cleansing elixir of cleansers, conditioners and essential oils, you can be sure your natural and synthetic brushes are pure for each client. Consider the calming, invigorating lavender and lemongrass scent an additional gift of love from me to you.
Cleaning Techniques For spot cleaning your brushes in-between makeup applications you’ll need a product that dries quickly like Aromatherapy Brush Cleaner.
To spot clean with Aromatherapy Brush Cleaner, spray a tissue or paper towel with the product and gently swipe the bristles of the brush along the portion of the towel dampened with the solution. Once pigment/product is no longer on your brush, swipe the bristles along the clean/dry portion of the paper until all residue and traces of pigmentation are removed from the fibers. The normal drying time for a spot-cleaned brush is approximately 3 to 5 minutes.
To deep clean your brushes using Aromatherapy Brush Cleaner. When cleaning brushes that have been used with cream or liquid makeup you may want to submerge the fibers (only) into a small cup with approximately 1 inch of cleaner to fully saturate and dissolve the makeup. Then gently swipe the brush fibers on a dry paper towel to remove all pigment. Ready to use in 10 minutes!
To deep clean with a moisturizing shampoo, start by submerging the fibers of the brush up to the ferrule (the crimped metal sleeve that attaches the bristles to the handle) into a mixture of warm water and shampoo. Gently agitate the brush in the sudsy mixture to reach the core of the bristles. As you rinse thoroughly with clean water, any pigment/product residue will be expelled from the brush. Once your brushes are clean, remove the excess water by gently squeezing the bristles (never wring, twist or pull).
>>>Most importantly you want to shake out all excess water to ensure rapid drying. Reshape the brush head to its original form and lay flat to dry, preferably over a counter ledge to facilitate equal drying on all sides. The approximate drying time for this procedure is 3 hours.
Tip: Often brushes are housed in a brush roll or bag that can smash brushes, bending the fibers. (This problem was the motivation behind the creation of Cozzette Vessels). To reshape synthetic brushes, simply hold them under boiling water for 30 seconds. This will allow you to return the brush to its original shape. Squeeze out the water and lay flat to dry.
