Are you interested in finding out more about cruelty free boar bristles brushes? If you are a man or woman chances are you use a brush. And since you are reading this article I am guessing you are interested in humanely raised animal brushes.

Boar brush and cruelty free? A boar brush is made from boars in which are said to be humanely raised. A brush is made by cutting the boar's hair in such a way the boar is not harmed. Some manufactures claim not do any cruel testing on animals. But you should do your own research before you buy. Many of these products also come in recyclable environmental friendly packaging. Hair brushes made with boar bristles are very good at efficiently spreading the sebum oils from your scalp throughout your hair when you brush. This has a natural conditioning effect making your hair look shiny and reduces frizz.

According to Ed, "There are people who do not want to support cruelty to animals so these brushes have become more popular." By purchasing a brush where the boar for example was killed then you are essentially supporting that industry. So the thought is not to support harming animals and to buy synthetic or specifically labeled brushes that state "Cruelty Free".

According to Suzana Rose, at Cruelty-Free Kitty, "Amazon is by far the largest online retailer with the most cruelty-free options, but a word of warning: don't take "cruelty-free" claims or filters at face value. Not all brands listed as "cruelty-free" are truly cruelty-free.

The reason why I listed Nylon as not sustainable: The majority of plastics are made from synthetic polymers, which are ultimately obtained from oil and gas production, as well as chemical additives. As a result, nylon is not widely regarded as a particularly sustainable.
The reason why I say Bambo is not sustainable is because for bamboo to be turned into bamboo viscose, cellulose in which products are made, it is extracted from the plant through the use of harsh chemicals. These chemicals are extremely dangerous to living things and the environment. Chemical use in workplaces has an impact on industrial workers, pollutes the air, and infects surrounding water systems.

  1. The article is incorrect, they are not cruelty free.
    Although the animal is not killed for the hair, it is traumatised by its acquisition for a multitude of reasons, just watch the process online. Also, the hair is only harvested a few times in it's lifetime they're then slaughtered
    So the Boars are bred for slaughter...

  2. Nylon is plastic, it inherently isn't sustainable. So saying that it is, that's 100% false. Fossil fuels are not sustainable.
