Wild & Stone’s natural nail brush is flexible enough to clean under your nails, firm enough to remove dirt and grime, but gentle enough not to damage the nail or scratch even the littlest of fingers. This nail brush is made from natural bristles. It is entirely plastic-free, including the packaging it will arrive in. Made from FSC® certified beechwood and natural sisal bristles, this brush is 100% biodegradable once it has come to the end of its life.
Sisal fibre, also known as agave sisalana, is a plant fibre that is similar to the top of a pineapple. Its sword-like leaves grow between 1.5 to 2 metres tall with an average life span of 7 to 10 years, this plant can produce up to 250 leaves, each containing around 1,000 fibres.
The sisal fibre is incredibly environmentally friendly as weeding is done by hand and it is grown sustainably. It is also well known for its exceptional durability, meaning that the body brush lasts for years.
The agave plant is the same plant that gives us tequila!
What is FSC® 100% Certified Beechwood?
FSC® is a globally recognised certification scheme. This means that the wood used in this product is certified against the principles and criteria of the Forest Stewardship Council®, including values such as maintaining the forest’s ecosystem, upholding indigenous people’s rights of land ownership, and a commitment to maintain or enhance the forests used.
How To Use This Zero Waste Nail Brush
Wet the bristles under warm water and add soap or hand wash to the brush; gently scrub the edge of the nails, focusing on the undersides of the nail bed. Rinse both the brush and hands well.
Why Use A Natural Nail Brush?
With a regular nail brush, the plastic bristles will eventually come out or break off, creating micro plastics that then enter our waterways and cause harm to animals and marine life.
