A Guide To Vegan Shaving Brushes

Choosing the best shaving brush

If you’re looking for an ethical alternative to commercial shaving products, then a vegan shaving brush could be just what you need. There’s a growing concern among consumers about the origin of certain beauty and grooming products, and more people are looking for animal-friendly alternatives. At Clear Confidence, all our shaving products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free.

Opting for a vegan shaving brush is a step in the right direction, and they make a great addition to your shaving kit. There are also several other sustainable shaving products that will go perfectly with your vegan shaving brush. An increase in demand for more ethical grooming products has meant that there are fantastic ranges available, so you don’t have to compromise on price, or quality.

What are vegan shaving brushes?

The majority of commercial shaving brushes have plastic handles and use animal hair, such as badger or boar, for bristles. Vegan shaving brushes, on the other hand, have 100% synthetic bristles. Their handles are also made of sustainable materials such as natural wood, and what’s more, they’re mostly available in plastic-free packaging. If you appreciate a quality shave and would like to upgrade your kit, why not opt for a more eco, cruelty-free version? A vegan shaving brush is ideal for those who want to do their bit for the environment and reduce their carbon footprint.

What are the benefits of using a vegan shaving brush?

There are numerous benefits of making the switch to a vegan shaving brush. Not only are they cruelty-free and better for the environment, but they’re also great for your skin and provide a clean and professional-level shave. With a vegan shaving brush you can be confident you’ll get the best results, and finally shave guilt free. Here some examples of the benefits of using a vegan shaving brush.


Standard shaving brushes are made from animal hair. The bristles typically come from badger or boar hair. These animals are killed for the specific purpose of making these brushes. Badgers in particular are often kept in cruel conditions and farmed for their fur. If you’re a supporter of animal rights, then a vegan shaving brush is a better alternative. Cruelty-free products aren’t only for vegans and animal lovers, but for anyone who understands the need to put an end to how animals are raised in these deplorable conditions.


Traditional shaving brushes are not vegan-friendly due to the fact that they are made from animal byproducts. A vegan lifestyle isn’t just about diet. It’s an awareness that no animal should be exploited or harmed in order to create certain products. This includes animal testing. Vegan-friendly and cruelty-free often go hand in hand, but there are a couple of differences. Vegan-friendly means there are no ingredients that are derived from animals, regardless of the ethical sourcing of certain animal products.


Vegan shaving brushes are more durable due to the synthetic bristles. They’re a more sustainable option compared to traditional shaving brushes. Synthetic shaving brushes are long-lasting and a good investment. The bristles are also less absorbent than those made of animal hair, so your other shaving products such as creams shaving soaps will last longer too. Vegan shaving brushes lather up more easily, so you can use a smaller amount of these products. You’ll not only be doing your bit for the environment, but saving money as well.

Low maintenance

As well as being more durable, vegan shaving brushes are incredibly low maintenance and convenient to use. You can clean and look after them with minimal effort. Due to the fact that they’re less absorbent, they can be rinsed clean in a jiffy. There’s also a lower chance of breakage, or loss of bristles. Another big advantage of synthetic shaving brushes over animal hair is that they dry out much quicker. All shaving brushes should ideally be stored or hung upside down to ensure they dry properly. Animal hair bristles can take over a day to dry out like this, whereas vegan shaving brushes are relatively quick-dying. This makes life a lot easier when shaving on the go.

Effective for all skin types

Vegan shaving brushes have slightly lighter bristles, which are less abrasive on sensitive skin. Animal hair is also more likely to cause a reaction in the allergy-prone, or irritation. You can achieve great results with synthetic shaving brushes, on a variety of skin types. Anyone with a desire to practise conscious beauty and an eco-friendly regime can benefit from a vegan shaving brush.

Our plastic-free razor handles are made entirely of ethically-sourced bamboo. Bamboo is a staple in the plastic-free health and beauty industry because it’s extremely durable, but at the same time elegant and stylish.

Disposable and single-use plastics have a damaging effect on the environment. They’re not biodegradable, and will most likely spend years in a landfill. Reusable metal razors also contain harmful components and have non-recyclable cartridges. With a bamboo razor, there’s no need to replace the cartridges and they are built to last. You’ll reduce your contribution to both land and sea waste, and save money in the long run as well.

Vegan skin care products

There is an abundance of vegan and cruelty-free skin care products on the market. These include beard oils and balms, and shaving creams. Look for shaving creams with natural ingredients and plastic-free packaging to accompany your vegan shave brush and sustainable razor.

Invest in a vegan shaving soap with cruelty-free natural ingredients. These have many benefits for your skin. They contain fewer chemicals, so are less likely to cause irritation. Natural shaving soaps produce a richer, kinder lather which facilitates a clean shave while reducing the risk of inflammation, allergic reactions, and cuts and nips. Why not protect your skin as well as the environment?

There are countless benefits to opting for vegan skincare. Vegan skincare products are not tested on animals and don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients. The environmental impact is also reduced due to the sustainable and biodegradable materials used to make them. Fortunately, more and more brands are releasing vegan and cruelty-free skincare products, with the option to recycle their packaging as well.

If you’re after a professional shave at home, it’s always advisable to invest in a shaving brush. They work by whipping air into your shaving cream or soap generating a rich lather. With a shaving brush, you can also apply this more evenly to your face. It also has a massaging and exfoliating effect and rids your skin of dead cells. Using a shaving brush not only softens and lifts the hair, making it easy to achieve a closer shave, but it also generates heat which opens your pores and lubricates your skin.

Whether you need to upgrade your current shaving brush, or are considering investing in one, then vegan is the only way to go. The results will be just as good as with a boar or badger hair brush but you will be able to shave guilt-free. Vegan shaving brushes are long-lasting, but won’t break the bank.
