                      Hi Steecat,

                      Thanks for your question! All of our EcoTools and Real Techniques brush bristles are synthetic, and this was designed to work perfectly with both synthetic and natural hair bristles.

                      Hope that helps!

                      Hi Michelle,

                      Great question - this cleanser is one of my personal favorites because of how gentle it is, but also how effective it is too! You should be able to use this with no problem on any of the makeup brushes in your bag.

                      Thanks!

                      Hi Ray Ray,

                      As with everything, it's probably best if you consult your dermatologist before using, but I can tell you that this is formulated with ingredients that are a bit less harsh than some of the other makeup brush cleansers that are out there. And, while I'm not a doctor, I think that would lessen any skin irritations, etc that you might experience.

                      Hope that helps!

                      Hi Abby,

                      Great question. This brush is specifically formulated with gentler ingredients to ensure that your brushes and sponges do not dry out. I use this shampoo to clean my brushes every week and LOVE the performance I get from them after I clean them. While we don't claim that this "conditions" your brushes, I do think mine feel softer after cleaning, definitely!

                      Thanks - hope that helps!

                      Hi Grace,

                      Such a good question and love to hear that you're cleaning your brushes! This brush shampoo is specifically formulated to be as eco-friendly as possible, which means that the ingredients used are going to keep your brushes as soft as possible. I use this every week to clean my brushes and I think they are still as soft as when I got them!

                      Hope that helps!

                      Hi Mackenzie,

                      Thanks for your question.

                      This cleanser has been dermatologist tested and is hypoallergenic. Because it's also made with gentle plant-based ingredients, and is free of parabens, phthalates, and petroleum-based ingredients, it should not cause your skin to break out. Just ensure that you wash, rinse and dry your brushes thoroughly.

                      Thanks!

                      Hi Glynn,

                      Good question - I actually had to ask the people who formulated the shampoo about that, so I learned something too today! :)

                      They told me that the Makeup Brush Shampoo is just a cleanser for the brushes, and does not contain any antibacterial agents. The shampoo will wash away buildup (including bacteria), but isn't designed to kill bacteria.

                      Hope that helps!

                      Yes, this is great for use on sponges. As with any type of cleanser, just make sure you rinse thoroughly and squeeze any excess liquid off your sponge and allow to dry.

                      Thanks!
