At the Executive Shaving Company we took the decision to stop selling badger hair shaving brushes from the 22nd of November 2019. You can read our full statement on the reasons behind this decision in our Badger Hair Shaving Brushes – A Statement blog post. We have been selling off our remaining stocks of badger hair brushes, you can use the discount code – BADGER30 – to get a 30% discount off the current price of any badger hair shaving brush.
At Executive Shaving we recommend that you use a good quality synthetic shaving brush to create the perfect, rich, lubricating shaving lather, to get the best possible shave without irritation. If you are still interested in a badger hair shaving brush we still have some stock left for you to browse through.
The shaving lather is so important when you shave, because it softens the hairs of your beard, making them easy to cut by the razor, protects your skin against any irritation caused by the razor blade and moisturises the skin structure itself. Using a quality shaving brush will allow you to create a good shaving lather.
Most users claim the best shaving brushes are made with badger hair, it has the perfect water retention properties and bristle stiffness to whip up the best lather from your shaving soap or shaving cream. Badger hair shaving brushes remain soft and pliable over many years, despite daily use (provided they are cared for and used properly).
Badger hair shaving brushes come in three grades - Pure badger hair, Best badger hair and Super or Silvertip badger hair.
Badger Hair Grades
Silver Tip Badger
Silver Tip Badger hair is also known as Super Badger , this is the softest and most luxurious badger hair bristle used to make shaving brushes.
Best Badger hair is a firmer grade of hair compared to Super / Silvertip
Pure Badger hair is the lowest grade of badger hair bristles, which are rougher on the face compared to Silvertip / Super and Best
Synthetic Fibre Shavng Brushes
It has to be said that the New Generation Synthetic Hair Shaving Brushes are of very high quality, they mimic the lathering action of a good quality shaving brush. The benefits of using a synthetic shaving brush are: no badger had to die, synthetic brushes dry almost instantly after use making them ideal for travel and they are able to withstand rough treatment better than a badger brush. Some experts predict that synthetic shaving brushes will soon overtake badger hair brushes in popularity
