Shaving brushes are essential to building a tight, dense foam and for lifting individual hairs, coating them with lather, and exposing them to the razor for a clean, close shave. The bristles on the shaving brush also help exfoliate the skin, a rejuvenation process allowing new skin cells and hair to grow healthily.
Badger hair is a traditional favorite for shaving brushes, and is often considered to be the best fiber for shaving because of its ability to hold a good amount of water. Water is the most important element to achieving the perfect lather and a close shave. Badger hair maximizes the effect of water on your skin and hair.
Badger is typically sorted into four grades: pure badger, best badger, super badger, and silvertip badger.
Super badger hair is considered a premium fiber and is gathered from hair that covers about 20% of the badger's body. Individual hairs are highly graded, and are finer and longer, with silky tips. Because the hairs are finer, the brush is dense and fluffy. A denser brush holds more water, which creates a well formed lather quickly.
