Eco Max Nail Brush (Medium Bristle) is handmade from natural Tampico, which is a form of cactus and an ideal medium strength vegetable fibre for wet scrubbing. The easy grip handle is made from rubber wood which is sourced from rubber trees at the end of their productive life. Eco Max Brushes are Vegan, Fair Trade and biodegradable. Tampico holds 65% more water than plastic, allowing you to scrub your nails without the need for running water and the natural fibres do not bend and flatten. Care of your brush: Shake out excess water and stand to dry. Do not leave the timber handle damp or in water for prolonged periods.
