What are your brushes made of?

Our brush hair is made from a synthetic technology called Futura, a type of synthetic fiber that can withstand extreme heat and can actually outlast most animal hair.

Futura is very similar to badger hair, and many believe that it is better for wet shaving because of its stiffer nature. The stiffer bristles allow a wet shaver to lather soap in a mug or scuttle with more tension and thus consistency, resulting in a thicker foam and, therefore, better shave.

The Swedish Wood Brush and Lucan Wood Brush are 3.9 inches tall and is made with Swedish wood, the Sandalwood Brush is 4.1 inches tall and is made with sandalwood, while the Collapsible Brush is 6.1 inches tall and made with an aluminum handle.

We don't support the killing of animals to shave our faces. In fact, we donate up to 5% to protecting badgers worldwide. However, we cast no blame or judgment if you are into that.

Would beard oil fit where the brush does in the Cador Case?

For sure. A bottle of beard oil would fit in the Cador Case if the bottle is the same size as the brush—or even if it's a little bigger, it would still fit the razor case. There are about 5 inches in length and plenty of width for a normal-sized balm bottle.

The skin is the largest organ in the body. Hemp helps rebalance the traumatized dermis layer of the skin and is an excellent post-shave natural skin-care remedy.
