Frequently Asked Questions

Cozzette presents 100% vegan makeup brushes of the highest quality. Silky bristles made of the finest synthetic fibers – polymer filaments provide you with peace of mind and blending perfection. Practice compassion through the art of beauty with these essential, cruelty-free tools. We use either nylon or taklon. Nylon & Taklon are the common name for a synthetic fiber used in pro artist-quality makeup brushes. It is a smooth, soft polyester derivative devoid of any protein component or allergen elements and is therefore used in the cosmetic industries as a “green,” “vegan,” “allergy free” or synthetic alternative to animal hair brushes.

In recent years, makeup brushes made of synthetic hair filaments have become generally accepted as an excellent alternative to natural hair. Synthetic ‘hair’ is not real hair, but polymer filaments made to look and act like hair. Cozzette, synthetic makeup brushes are constructed using a mixture of filament diameters to achieve shapes and styles that mimic animal hair and are perfect for makeup application.

Modern technology has mastered the art of creating synthetic fibers that mimic the look of natural hair, however synthetics are stronger and will last many years beyond that of their natural counterparts. Our makeup brushes vary in thickness and resilience, the filament comes to a tapered point, and some fibers are crimped or roughened to hold pigments. Just as with natural-hair brushes, Cozzette blends different size synthetic fibers to achieve desired shape and characteristics.

Synthetic makeup brushes can be used with all mediums, for all styles of makeup. Short-handled, soft brushes with snap and spring and are preferred for powder shadows and have the strength to move crème color effectively. The best of both worlds!

It is highly unlikely that synthetic makeup brushes will shed. Synthetic makeup brushes are extremely stable and resilient. Not only are they superior to animal hair in overall strength, but because they are configured of nylon they will out last animal fiber. If a Cozzette brush sheds it is not up to our high standard and we will replace it.

Yes, Vegan Makeup Brushes can be softer then natural fibers. Synthetics are manufactured using a method that refines the end or tip of the fiber to mimic “virgin hair” (as if the tapered end of the shaft has never been cut), this will produce the most delicate contact with the skins surface nearly eliminating physical irritation.

Divinity Collection makeup brushes are hand made and then finished with 100% renewable resource solid wood handles that come from an FSC certified supplier.

Synthetic fibers are far superior to natural hair because they do not have a porous surface or cuticle that can be damaged by brush cleaning solutions, tints or environmental factors.

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. Than 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.
