Cosmetic brush - Cleaning and care

With the right maintenance and care, da Vinci quality brushes will maintain their flexibility and suppleness for many years, keep their shape and do not shed hairs. For this purpose, we offer special brush cleaners which help in prolonging a brushes´life significantly.

Why should I clean my makeup brushes frequently?

Finest natural hair as well as synthetic fibres can harden or break or lose their suppleness if makeup residues remain in the brush head, or if cleansers based on alcohol are used. 

Also in terms of hygiene it is recommended to clean brushes regularly and thoroughly, as a brush does not only absorb makeup but also sebum or bacteria.  

How do I clean my makeup brushes correctly?

Clean your brushes thoroughly with an appropriate cleaning product every 2 or 3 weeks as follows: 

Wet the brush with enough water, rub the cleanser gently into the core of the brush and wash it out thoroughly. 

If necessary, repeat the procedure. 

Then, carefully streak excess water out by hand or by the use of a towel and let the brush dry horizontally. 

ATTENTION: do not let the brushes dry while standing in a container, otherwise the hair will not dry properly and can be damaged.
