While EcoTools’ bristles are one of its major tradeoffs, using synthetic fibers allows them to avoid using animal hairs for their products. They also have an admirable mission and provide sustainable bamboo brush options compared to plastic brushes. As such, while the bristles are unsustainable, its brush is one of the better alternatives to plastic makeup brushes on the market since it incorporates various recyclable materials.
EcoTools’ Precision Blush makeup brush is made up of taklon bristles, renewable bamboo handles, and recycled aluminum. Their brushes are PETA-certified through their use of synthetic fibers. Both their bamboo handles and recycled aluminum can be recycled; however, their synthetic fibers are not as sustainable. Synthetic fibers are non-biodegradable despite being cruelty-free.
Other than the materials used to create the brush, there is very limited information on how the brush itself is made. It would be great if there were a more in-depth product description about where the brushes were made and the manufacturing processes.
EcoTools is the brand behind the Precision Blush Brush. Their main mission is to provide cruelty-free brushes that are environmentally friendly using recycled materials. Most of their products are made from recyclable materials and their packaging is also from 100% tree-free paper through cotton and bamboo fibers. They also dedicated to supporting women empowerment and collaborates with Glamour magazine’s The Girl Project to support girls education globally. EcoTools has a strong mission and have mostly sustainable products, but the only tradeoff is the use of synthetic bristles in their brushes which are non-biodegradable and must be disposed of rather than repurposed.
