Brush Firmness

Most of our brush bristles are made of natural materials and vary in bristle firmness to cater for individual preferences. In the Shop every brush has details on what the brush is made of, dimensions and the firmness of the brush bristles.

All Bodecare brush bristles are categorised under Extra Soft, Soft, Medium and Firm.
