Soft, shining hair and a cruelty free boar bristle brush

Kat

I love my Mason Pearson boar bristle brush. My hair has never been so soft and shiny.
Their brushes are really good quality, I had one as a kid and it lasted for years and years, I'm confident that my new one last a long time too.

Before buying a boar bristle brush I reached out to Mason and Pearson because I had concerns about animal welfare. They assured me that no animals were harmed. This is their response:

Thank you for contacting Mason Pearson.

Our boar bristle is sourced from both India and China and is harvested from two methods:


Collected from the forests surrounding the villages where the wild boars live and once they rub / scratch their backs against trees, the shed bristle is collected
As a by-product of the meat industry


I must stress that animal welfare is very important to us and no animals are harmed for their bristle.


1) The bristles are a by-product of the food chain.

In India, China etc. the little black-haired pigs running around in the village, as we would have chickens, geese and goats in Europe, are wild boar, as a breed, that are being reared for food. So there is a stream of semi-domestic animals available each year where bristle is a by-product. It would not be economic for a village to feed such animals for bristle alone, unless the hair is removed each year, and we do not know whether this is practical. Given that these animals are quite capable of looking after themselves in a fight, it would be hazardous to expect one to remove bristle while they are alive. They are treated in the village as part of its way of life and not as animals hunted down specifically for their hair.


The bristle is collected to comply with the EU Regulations on importing Products of Animal Origin. This is taken from animals slaughtered for their meat, with the bristle being a by-product. The regulations require that there is a veterinary certificate for the slaughterhouse inspected by a veterinarian approved by EU and a disinfection certificate to the relevant standard for the material from the processing plant.

2) The shed bristles are gathered by locals as a supplementary income.

We also understand that there is another, wilder breed. These are the ones which moult and the hair is collected.


Best Wishes

  2. A great investment!

    Ladolcelana

    Sure, this brush is pricey, but I like to think of it as an investment. This is a great size for my handbag and travel, but is totally sufficient for even my very long hair. I love how smooth and shiny my hair looks after I use this brush. It’s a must-have in my collection!
  3. Wow!

    Seja

    Makes your hair very silky and smooth, gives your scalp a good massage. It untangles hair so effectively! It also ensures your hair doesn't get pulled out or fall out too much
  4. A great children's brush

    Talia

    The size of this, and the gentleness, is ideal for children. This was the brush of choice for my daughter until she was about seven years old and her hair became too long and thick. But it's ideal for finer hair, and gets a ponytail SO perfectly smooth!
  5. My favourite all time brush

    Marissa

    Excellent for thick hair, helps me keep my hair managable despite all of my curls! Easy to keep clean too.
  6. Great

    Lily

    One of my all time favourite brushes, this is a great everyday brush that works great for detangling hair
  7. Great for smoothing

    Amanda

    This brush is quite gentle and feels lovely to brush with. My hair is always nice and smooth after using
  8. Strong brush, gentle on hair

    Cassandra

    The brush was smaller than I expected. It is very soft on the hair which reduces breakage and increases shine. I am looking forward to see how long it lasts me after looking at past reviews.
  9. Well worth the investment

    Natasha

    I was intimidated by the price but after much deliberation I finally took the plunge and purchased one. It is a beautifully made brush. The bristles are firm but not rough. It detangles my fine hair easily and doesn't flatten it like other brushes can. I do still get some static but my hair is extremely prone to it. The size is perfect for every day use and travel.
    My hair is baby fine and super straight
  10. Beautiful quality hair brushes

    Edwina

    I've had one of these hairbrushes ever since I was a baby and they are amazing. I think I'm on my fourth one now and they last for years and years. They're also easy to clean.
    I've always purchased the smaller ones, not sure why but they're a good size and I don't feel the need to get the larger size.
    Make sure to purchase the natural boar bristles but be wary of your finger nails when digging around your handbag for your brush - a bristle under your nail will HURT!
  11. a great investment

    Lauren

    I bought this brush as a gift for my mum as she found that when she was brushing her hair with one of those cheap plastic brushes it was causing so much breakage and leaving her hair a big fluffy frizzy mess. This boar bristle brush is great because it distributes the natural oils in your scalp through your hair to keep it healthy and also helps to detangle without causing too much frizz.
  12. Perfect for your handbag or for travel

    Lys

    I love this brush, it is small but gets through my long thick hair easily and it is just the perfect size for a handbag (it is also all I need when I travel). As with all these brushes, the bristles can be a bit spikey so be careful not to let them get under your nails or it will hurt! Totally recommend to anyone with any hair type at all.
