Synthetic fibre is an ethical, vegan-friendly, affordable alternative to badger hair. The black synthetic fibre retains hot water which, when combined with shaving cream or soap, can create a creamy lather that emulates the experience of using real badger hair shaving brushes, offering a comparable shave that is equally as pleasing.
This type of fill is becoming increasingly popular as synthetic fibres are extremely resistant to problems associated with lather residue in natural badger hair brushes. They are very firm in the middle, allowing them to retain their shape and they dry exceptionally fast, making brush maintenance easier than ever.
Those with particularly sensitive skin may find that synthetic brushes are a good option as the tips are the softest of any type of shaving brush fill, offering an especially kind and pleasant touch to the skin.
The brush fill sits in a light-coloured ash wooden handle, branded with the Nom logo. The simple, straightforward handle is designed to fit in the hand perfectly. The brushes are crafted in Germany using the most efficient technology.
To clean this brush, simply rinse under hot water (max temperature: 45°) and shake dry to remove any remaining lather residue. It may be hung in a stand to dry off if desired, allowing the brush to be displayed between use. Do not use chemical detergents such as borax or vinegar on this brush, plain water works just fine.
- Pleased with brush
First time I have purchased/ used a synthetic brush. Feels different on the face to a badger hair brush. Soon got used to this . Lathers well and pleasant on the face. Very pleased with purchase.

- A luxury feeling and performing synthetic brush for a fraction of the price.
As a bit of a hippy I have always used synthetic brushes and since my other half has discovered that she too prefers double edged razors to overpriced (and landfilling!) Gilette's she's pinched my favourite so I decided to try this - green being my favourite colour and as I prefer the feel of wood to ceramic/plastic. I was very pleasantly surprised for the price. The brush is soft but firm - holds and creates a thick lather and has enough stiffness to exfoliate but not irritate. The handle is comfy and its a perfect brush size wish both for home and travel. Highly recommended.
