How to clean your brushes

Regular washing can help extend the life of your brushes, so wash your brush ends regularly to prevent product build-up and breakouts. The natural ingredients in NutriClean OLC will keep your brushes in pristine condition, while the Brush Cleaning Pad removes old colour build-up and purifies bristles to get rid of dirt, oil and bacteria.

  • Wet the bristles with lukewarm water. Do not get the handles wet.
  • Using mild soap, swirl the bristles on the brush pad, in a circular motion.
  • Gently rinse the bristles until the water runs clear and there are no more bubbles
  • Squeeze out the excess moisture with a clean towel and allow to fully air dry before next use.

CARE TIPS: Make sure you lay them flat to let the bristles reshape. If placed upright, excess water may trickle into the handle and cause damage. Avoid storing brushes in humid places. To maintain brush lifespan, NEVER soak the wooden handles in the water. Store your brushes in cool and dry place.
