Shaving brushes are a vital part of proper preparation for a great shave. While its primary job is to create a rich lather to lubricate your face during the shave, another advantage of shaving brushes is that they help gently exfoliate your skin while lathering as well as lifting the hair of your beard so they're easier to shave. Doing so will help to prevent razor bumps and irritating ingrown hairs. Our Ivory Shaving Brush not only looks GREAT but is paired with a sturdy synthetic knot that provides great backbone and pressure to comfortably exfoliate and lather. This knot is also designed to dry quickly and be maintained easily, which makes it ideal for travel.
